Review: marie claire – The Parcel – the Summer Edit

Why hello there Fashionistas!

I was very excited to receive my second Marie Claire – The Parcel. I was very impressed with the first one, so I could not WAIT to open the Summer Edition!


What is the Parcel?


“Curated by our beauty editors, The Parcel by marie claire is a luxury beauty box containing deluxe samples and new releases from leading beauty brands delivered direct to your door four times a year.”



Choose from a single box for $25 or a yearly subscription for $90 and get a seasonal box delivered to your home 4 times a year.


I chose a yearly subscription, and so far it has DEFINITELY been worth it.


The packaging is fab and stylish. The address is printed on the outer sleeve. Very professional looking and very much like a Marie Claire magazine cover.



The Outer sleeve



Inside, everything was carefully wrapped in black tissue, with a little pamphlet on top with descriptions of everything inside.
So what is in it?
1.  A full-sized Full Sized Jergens Ultra Healing Body Moisturiser, $5.99
2. A full-sized Revlon Age Defying CC Cream in Medium $26.95
3. A full sized Essie Nail Polish in Tart Deco $16.95
4. A full sized Essie Top Coat $17.95
4. A deluxe sample of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream size unknown
5. A deluxe sample of Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes 30ml
6. A deluxe sample of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye 5ml
7.  Travel sizes of John Frieda Luxurous Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and Conditioner, and Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray.
Unbelieveable value again this time around. I don’t think I would like to swap any of these items. I have been wanting to try Estee Lauders Advanced Repair Eye cream, as well as the Jergens body cream.
I am very familiar with the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream, and will keep this sample in the car for lips, hands and frizzy hair ends!
I am over the moon with this box, and could not recommend it more highly. This would make a FANTASTIC Christmas present, either a single box or a full Subscription with or without Marie Claire magazine subscription…
Do you like what is in the box this time around? Would love to know what you think.

    1. I think it is because it is a quarterly subscription Jen. And I figure the beauty editors from Marie Claire have great pull and get the best products. So far so good, i think it is definitely worth a go. x

  1. I must say after reading a negative review of the last parcel I was apprehensive about my first Marie Claire parcel. Like you, I am very happy with the parcel & so glad I bought an annual subscription
