The Refresh Box
I was very kindly sent The Refresh Box to try. This box contains six items designed to restore hydration, nourish and moisturise dry skin and lips.
- Collagen Face Cream RRP £12
- Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum RRP £6.50
- Rosehip Cleansing Oil RRP £10
- Vitamin ACE Warming Gel Mask RRP £8.50
- Super Food Facial Oil RRP £8
- Liquorice Lip Oil RRP £6.50
This box is such good value. Together, the Q+A Rosehip Cleansing Oil and The Q+A Collagen Face Cream cost more than the box when bought separately!
I really like that this provides almost a full routine too.
I started with The Q+A Rosehip Cleansing Oil as my first cleanser. This is suitable for all skin types and removed my makeup, but without stripping my skin. It’s gentle, but effective.
Next, The Q+A Vitamin ACE Warming Gel Mask. I left on for about 8 minutes (10 is reccomended, but I got impatient!) And it washes off as a milky texture. Aims to brighten and rejuvenate skin whilst hydrating.
Following this, I used the hydrating Q+A Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum which absorbed really quickly to allow for the application of The Q+A Super Food Facial Oil which is packed with vitamins A, C, E and F and has the added benefit of calming inflamed skin.
Without a doubt, the product I use up quickest is a moisturiser. The Q+A Collagen Face Cream is the most expensive item in the box, but costs just £12! The vegetarian formula is wrinkle-preventing, and helps to improve skin firmness, hydration and elasticity.
Finally, I reapplied (because I actually used this first fresh out of the box!) The Q+A Liquorice Lip Oil. I love that it has a roller ball applicator. It boosts moisturisation to help lips look naturally fuller. It is a thin oil that applies really nicely and I was surprised to find it didn’t have a liquorish scent, but I can definitely see me carrying this around in my handbag.
