Review: marie claire – The Parcel – The Autumn Edit

Wow. Have 3 months really passed since I received the last Parcel???

I guess so. So excited to see it arrive this morning. The last 2 have been AMAZING and I am anxious to see if they kept up the good word. The cynic in me says that it can’t last – there has to be a dud somewhere along the line…

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.

And of course, the packaging is beautiful. The outer sleeve looks again, like a magazine cover.

Inside, the familiar black box. So classy.

All the goodies are wrapped up in black tissue paper, and there is a little pamphlet with the descriptions of everything inside.

Here is what was in it:


  1. Full size Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara in Black,  $23.95
  2. Full Size Rimmel BB Cream Radiance in Medium (not in store yet until April!!) $12.95
  3. Full size Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Cream, $19.95
  4. Full Size Schick Hydro Silk Razo, $14.25
  5. Travelpack Neutrogena Make Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
  6. Larger than travel size MOR emporium Classics Snow Gardenia Triple-Milled Soap
  7. Larger than travel size L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream in Zesty Lime
  8. Sample Size Lancôme Advanced Génefique Youth Activating Concentrate

That is a HUGE $71.10 worth of full size goods, not counting the great samples!

My favourite things in this pack would have to be the Max Factor Mascara and the MOR soap smells divine ( i am not actually convinced that this is a sample. I think this is a full size).  There is not one thing in this box that will not be used!


I would definitely recommend The Parcel to anyone. $90 for 4 boxes, and every 3 months such amazing new things to try. Definitely no cheap stuff here. I have paid for another box to come, the Winter edition. I am pretty sure I will re subscribe, I am very happy.

Do you subscribe to any boxes? Is there one you think I should be subscribing to? Which is your favourite?

  1. Quite a few cute items in here that are worth a try! I’m not yet subscribed to any boxes, but I like the idea of something to look forward to.

    1. Hi May, yes it is like a gift to yourself every month! I subscribe to the Marie Claire box of course, and Her Fashion Box. I have also just joined Lips monthly, but have yet to receive the first box. x
