"Divine Beauty" BeautifulBox by Aufeminin, May 2017. Beauty box unboxing, review and Olympéa make-up look.

Exactly like Pollon, I dreamed about becoming a real goddess...
May 2017 BeautifulBox by Aufeminin, called "Divine Beauty", had to fulfil my deep and childish dream, but it made me wait for it and I’ve been waiting for it for some time before this...

The beauty box featured in today’s post, the BeautifulBox by Aufeminin for May 2017, has an epic name: "Divine Beauty".
This rich chest grape some Mediterranean ingredients particularly dear to Ancient Greece as honey and myrtle.
The tutorial and the included products focus on fragile hair to naturally nourish them and allow to create a hairstyle perhaps worthy of a Greek deity.
The six products found in this colourful beauty box, which ironically recalls the Paco Rabanne's eau de parfum "Olympéa" adv, are: a product from the brand new line by L'Oréal Paris "Botanicals Fresh Care", a Schwarzkopf "SOS Ultimate Fiber" hair mask, the Divine Beauty "Aphrodite" creamy blush, an illuminating warm peach blush with myrtle, narcissus and lotus extracts, Divine Beauty "Honey Moon", a honey hair mask, a golden hair band and some samples of "Quick Treat" GLOV microfiber make-up removing wipes.

Are these products worth the price? Did they satisfy my needs and expectations? Here are some personal considerations: Divine Beauty products are cosmetics created for Aufeminin and to me, it’s difficult to quantify their economic value; for this reason, finding more than one of these items in each box always leaves me puzzled.
In this case, however, the two Aufeminin products have proved to be useful and very pleasing to use, thanks to their light and delicate formulas, their "luxurious" extracts, and their sophisticated, almost high-end fragrances with floral and aromatic notes.
The Divine Beauty "Honey Moon" mask is way too small as it looks like a travel sized product and has no instruction stamped on the label or package.
BeautifulBox by Aufeminin customer service replied to my Facebook request: the Divine Beauty Honey Moon hair mask is a 2 in 1 product that can be applied as a mask to be held in between 5 and 10 minutes, or used as a leave-in treatment.
The BeautifulBox by Aufeminin “Divine Beauty” hair treatments allow to start a complete hair care cycle with the use of the Divine Beauty honey hair mask, the Potion de force "Botanicals Fresh Care" with coriander grains extracts by L’Oréal Paris and the hair mask "SOS Ultimate Fiber" by Schwarzkopf.

This beauty box, just like the last BeautifulBox - the Macaron Gloss Saga -, has been the source of a new discovery: a new launch.
The Potion de force "Botanicals Fresh Care" by L'Oréal Paris is an absolute novelty and is part of the new hair care range without colourants, parabens and silicones, with natural extracts and recycled packaging.
Although it’s a mass product with some chemical ingredients, this line represents a great step forward for the French cosmetic brand. A green step, I define!
Botanicals Fresh Care by L’Oréal Paris has arrived in Italy and is debuting worldwide but with different products and launches.

This month’s sample is a mini kit consisting of three "Quick Treat" GLOV disks. "Quick Treat" GLOV is a practical microfiber cloth which removes make-up without make-up removers. These microfiber cloths can be reused several times and, although small, these samples are ingenious because they allow me to test three different versions of the same product. Each GLOV diskette is specifically studied to remove make-up, while respecting each skin type’s need.
This month's accessory is a hair band with golden laurel leaves in line with the mythical theme. Aufeminin suggests using it with a braid crown hairdo...

I tried to jump into the world of the eternally young and beautiful Greek deities with my “Divine Beauty” BeautifulBox by Aufeminin... with it, some make-up and a bed sheet! 
Inspired by the beautiful Luma Grothe, the "Olympéa" in Paco Rabanne's media campaign, I created this make-up with natural shades. It’s a bright but cool look, strongly focused on the "strobing" technique. 
I pampered my hair with L'Oréal and Divine Beauty treatments; I created the make-up look by using the Move Me Jungle Viva La Diva eyeshadow palette (Barbados and Dominica for the cut crease, Fiji and Tahiti as neutral tones), Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Eye Gel Crayon in Pink of Me #59 on the waterline and Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara; the Divine Beauty Aphrodite creamy blush and Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in blush in Flesh & Fantasy.
I widely used the lighter shade from this Marc Jacobs duo as a highlighter on the bridge of my nose and over my cheekbone along with Venezuela, a shade from the Move Me Jungle palette.
In this eye kit by Swedish brand Viva La Diva I found some very versatile eyeshadows!
I ended up by playing with three The Multistick by Bite Beaty: Gelato layered with a “sprinkle” of Cashew and a touch of Blondie at the centre of my lips.

Do I approve the “Divine BeautyBeautifulBox by Aufeminin?
I think so: the hair products are good in quality, well-chosen and balanced for a specific hair type. The full-size content follows a thematic line and allows one to start a routine for fragile and dry hair.
The service is still to be refined, but I noticed that customer care is speeding up the procedures in answering to all social media questions.
I would prefer only a product by Aufeminin brand and just one sample in every beauty box, since samples and travel sizes can’t be considered part of a paid service by law, since they couldn’t be “purchased” and should be just an extra or gift.
Is BeautifulBox by Aufeminin going to improve? I can't wait to try June box to analyse the new selection, test the service and start a new transformation!

What do you think about my Olympic look? If only I was Luma...
