Douglas Box of Beauty - December Edition

So here is the December Edition of Douglas Box of Beauty. I was quite impressed by the content of it. No, actually I was really, really impressed, no need for modesty here.



DUPE ALERT: Dior Hypnotic Poison

A few weeks ago I was strolling around Kik Textilien Diskont and I saw a perfume bottle that kind of reminded me of Dior's Hypnotic Poison bottle. The perfume package also had a similar red and black colour. On the package it was written Addictive Venom. The whole package looked kind of cheap to me, especially the picture of snake (I mean it probably looks okay if you don't have in mind the original Dior Hypnotic Poison package). 
I sprayed the perfume on my wrist just to see how it smelled. As it resulted Addictive Venom is a good dupe for Dior Hypnotic Poison. So if you're on a budget and don't want to spend a whole lotta money on perfumes but you want something similar to Dior's Hypnotic Poison I would definitely give this perfume a go. 95 ml cost 3,19€.

Last month's Douglas Box of Beauty




Today I'm going to share with you the content of Douglas Box of Beauty (October). As soon as Douglas anounced the main product of October's box, I couldn't wait to order it since I'm a huge Origins fan. So without further ado - this is the content of October's Douglas Box of Beauty:

Best Autumn/Winter Perfumes



I don't own tons of perfumes as many other women do. I'd say I prefer quality over quantity, although - to me this phrase is kind of worn out. Let's just say I'm a student, and when i decide to give a "shitload" of money for a perfume, it better be good, magnificent even. I also think that with years you get this ability to really appreciate a good composition and - yeah i know i repeat myself - quality. So here are my TOP 3 perfumes I truly adore. I'm quite sure i'd give a kidney or some other organ in return for one of those!


Douglas Box of Beauty April

I know I'm kind of late to the party but I really like to test the products I get thouroghly before I give any feedback. Here's the content of Aprils Edition of Douglas Box of Beauty:



Origins Original Skin™ Renewal serum

Origins created a serum which is formulated to address Millenial skin concerns. Original Skin™ Renewal serum with Willowherb is designed to specifically target quarter-life skin concerns - rough texture, stressed skin, flaws in loss of radiance, enlarged pores and more. Original Skin™ features a floral and citrus essential oil blend including notes of soft rose, grapefruit and amyris.
I can say my love for Origins has only grown fonder. All products from Origins are formulated without Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, PABA, Petrolatum, Paraffin, DEA, Synthetic Fragrance, Animal Ingredients. 


Clinique All About Shadow Quad - 03 Morning Java

I've been longing for a Clinique eyeshadow palette for a very long time. After reading some good reviews about their palettes I finally decided for "All About Shadow" Eyeshadow Quad in 03 Morning Java.  At Clinique they say that these powder colors are formulated to be crease- and fade- resistant. They're also opthamologist tested and therefor suitable for sensitive eyes and contact-lens wearers. This feauture is really important to me because I have really sensitive eyes. I often get an itchy feeling when I wear eyeshadows. I noticed this when applying some eyeshadows among them were also the eyeshadows from the "legendary" Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.
