October Boudoir Privé Box

Hi lovelies. I hope you are having a good week so far. Today I want to show you the products that I received in my October Boudoir Privé box.

Left to Right: Cetuem Illuminating Mask, Cetuem Crème De Lite, Korres Quince Body Butter & Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme

Cetuem Illuminating Mask & Crème De Lite

The information:

Cetuem is listed as one of the top 100 beauty brands by Harper's Bazaar. These products are said to help you maintain a youthful complexion whilst brightening the skin and eliminating uneven skin tones.

The Cetuem Illuminating Mask is said to help to effectively exfoliate and eliminate open pores, brighten and lighten the skin tone, and promote skin elasticity. It's also said to revive sallow and tired skin as well as helping to diminish the signs of aging.

Once or twice a week brush on a thin layer of the mask to the face while avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10-15 mins. Once removed thoroughly apply skin toner. It's advised on the website to follow with SCR Gold Serum and Crème De Lite.

Cetuem Illuminating Mask is £25.00 for 50g, Link :)

I am looking forward to trying out this mask, but I really can't seeing me purchasing the full size of this product due to the price. It has quite an old fashioned smell too.

The Cetuem Crème De Lite is said to be naturally organic, help regulate uneven skin tones and help to encourage skin brightness. It's also meant to give clarity to sallow skin as well as helping eliminate freckles and pigmentation problems. Also said to help treat, improve and eliminate sun damage. Suitable for all skin types. Helps keep skin soft and supple. Also helps diminish fine lines, improve elasticity and skin texture. No bleaching ingredients or hydroquinone.

Use morning and night after thoroughly cleansing and toning. Massage well into face and neck. 

Cetuem Crème De Lite is £45.00 for 50ml, Link :)

I will again be interested to see how I like this, but because of the high price I really can't see me buying it if I like it. Again this has that old fashioned smell to it. 

Korres Quince Body Butter 

The information:

Said to be an extremely smooth and rich cream for dry and chapped skin all over the body. Ideal for dry elbows, heels and knees. A combination of vegetable oils has an excellent compatibility with the skin, allowing for easy absorption. Said to provide uplifting and long lasting moisture. Dermatologically tested, paraben free, mineral oil free, silicone free, propylene glycol free and ethanolamine free.

Apply daily to slightly damp or dry skin and massage in until it has absorbed.

£12.50 for 150ml, Link :)

I do have very dry skin and I think the price is pretty good for the amount so I am really happy to try this. I put some on my hand and it did absorb well. It has a very slightly sweet scent.

Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme

The information:

This is a pre-shampoo conditioner said to soften and nourish dry and damaged hair. Made from natural ingredients, delicate aromas and plant extracts. Said to nourish and detangle the hair. Meant to provide protection against effects of the sun, seawater and chlorinated pool water.

Prior to washing your hair apply a small quantity to the length and ends of your dry hair. Brush through and leave on 5 mins to overnight. Then wash out.

£24.00 for 95ml, Link :)

I don't really understand the whole pre-shampoo conditioner aspect of this. It makes more sense to me to do treatments after shampooing so that it is treating clean hair. This has a jelly type consistency. I don't really like the smell. It's hard to describe. I don't think this is a product I would choose to buy.

Left to Right: Memo Paris Les Echappees Shams, Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve & StudioMakeup Liner Styler Pen Black

Memo Paris Les Echappees Shams

The information:

A Paris based fragrance created by Clara Molloy. The Memo range is said to invite us on a sensory journey, aiming to evoke ideas of dream and travel.

Apply to your pulse points such as wrist and neck.

£69.00 for 30ml/£105.00 for 75ml, Link :)

To me this is a quite spicy, manly smell. I really don't like it. I can really smell the ginger and pepper. My boyfriend does not like it either. I think they are having a laugh with the price. Totally ridiculous.

Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve

The information:

Meant to soothe chapped lips and dry skin. Can also be worn as a glossy top coat over lipstick, an eye gloss, on brow bones or mixed with shimmer powder to give a glamorous glow. Contains natural beeswax and is lightly-scented.

Can be applied to unruly brows to tame them, condition and define lashes, soften cuticles and moisturise dry areas such as elbows and knees.

£5.00 for 20g, Link :)

I really hope this product works well as it seems so versatile. I love the vintage tin that the product comes in. It does have a soapy rose scent. It appeared to be a nice glossy salve when I swatched it. I think this will be good value for money.

StudioMakeup Liner Styler Pen Black

The information:

It claims to intensely define in a single stroke with the slim and soft tip and to be a deep black liner. Said to glide on to create a long lasting and crease-proof line and to be waterproof.

Draw a thin or thick line as desired to your lower and/or lower lash line. To be removed with water.

£12.00 for 1.1ml, Link :)

Initial swatch. This isn't a very good photo I admit, but believe me when I say that this liner is not intensely black. I would say it's mid-toned. The pen draws on with precision though.

I ran my finger over this liner to see if it would stay put due to it's claims of being crease-proof and waterproof. I did not stay on well at all as I hope you can see. Therefore I would not reccommend this liner as for the quality £12.00 is just too much.

The Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve is the stand out product for me in this month's box. I am also hopeful that the Korres Quince Body Butter will work well.

What did you receive in your Boudoir Privé box this month? Are you happy with the products? Will you be signing up if you haven't already?

Love to you all


  1. Hi Vicky! Thank you for your review of our October Boudoir Beauty Box.

  2. @Boudoir Privé - Hi. It was a pleasure :)

  3. Ahh I love the oil. I use oils all the time in my pre shampoo mixes, so this
    is jus something extra I can throw in. The oil solidifies when it gets cold but to
    return it to its right consistency, you need to pop the bottle into warm water.


  4. @Serenity of Beauty - Thanks for the tip x
