May 2012 Sweet Delight Divalicious Box–Summer Edition!

Hi Everyone!

To be honest, I wasn’t actually planning on getting another Divalicious Box because I am still working through my samples from the last one, but when I had a look at the list of contributors the night before the boxes went on sale, I knew I was going to be waking up early…5am specifically with me living on the West Coast and the boxes going on sale at 8am ET and then selling out in 2 hours! Oh, the things we do for beauty boxes! It was well worth the effort though because just like last time, this Divalicious Box was filled to the brim with goodies!

Firstly, there was jewellery from The Curious Cupcake and Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hypo in the form of a cute little peas in a pod pendant and heart lock earrings that say “Made with Love” on them! Awww! These are so cute!

Next up, whipped body butter from Organics and Bath, Coconut Lime Verbena Body Butter from Mainely Cole’s, Coconut-Mango Hand Cream from Tubtown Scents, Coconut Lemongrass Lotion from Ola Tropical Organics (received a lotion from them last time and I loved every last drop of it!) and Bugs Away Coconut Lime Body Mist from Willow Tree Collections.

And here is what I was most excited about! The makeup products! I received a LipZipz Twist lip balm which has a hook that lets you loop this lip balm onto anything so that you won’t lose it, a bottle of Del Sol nail polish in Prima Donna that changes colour in the sun(!!!!), Gettin’ Lippy lip balm in pink watermelon, green apple and red strawberry (you SNAP OFF the flavours when you get tired of one!), mineral lip gloss in Barely There by Paperdoll Mineral Cosmetics and Lip Glam Lip Gloss by Giella.

And finally, two bars of soap in the scents “Piper” and “Gwen” from Alegna Soap, one bar of soap from The Lemon Cat in “Almond Lemon”, Rosemary, Lemon and Eucalyptus bar soap from Watershed Naturals (right here in BC!), a scented tea light from Me and the Boy, a sample pack of Sweet Orange and Vanilla Body Butter from Amedaya Bodycare, Strawberry and Champagne Bubble Bath Powder from ReNewell Body Care, scented pen in Passion Fruit from Smens and a peppermint lip balm and sample of shea butter from Abibirem  Beauty.

Unfortunately, the lip balm from Abibirem Beauty smelled really stale…it’s actually so unpleasant that I think I’ll have to throw it out…I’m not sure what happened there, but that’s ok. This is still a wonderful wonderful box and I like this edition’s Divalicious Box more than the last one mainly because of the addition of makeup products Smile. I hope I don’t have to get up at 5am for the next box, but hell, I’ll do it if they’re all this good!

    1. Oh no...I would have had to order Del Sol online because it's not readily available where I live too, but I think it's going to be really pretty to wear!

  5. Looks like a pretty great mix there. I wouldn't wake up at 5 a.m for it though...I'm a grumpy morning person as is!

    Sincerely,

  6. let me know how that bug spray works! i get bitten a lot during the summer and they swell up to be like the size of oranges so it would be handy!

    1. Omigoodness, I feel like I should give YOU the bug spray because I rarely get bitten! I'll do a swatch once the sun decides to come out in Vancouver!

  11. Interesting how different mine was, right?? You got some great products! But it seems like it wasn't as full as mine or am I imagining?

    1. Hmmm, you do seem to have gotten more stuff!

  12. Gotta say I'm kind of jealous! Your box looks like it was a lot better than mine! I got a lot of tiny 1-2 use samples, and a lot of lip balms.

    1. I have to go in search of your post on this, but that's really too bad. The Divalicious Box is supposed to be hands and feet above a normal sampler box with tons of variety!

  13. This box looks awesome! It really is enough to not make you really want or need another right away the next month and so it makes a lot of sense. Love it :)

    1. Exactly! Seasonal boxes might be the answer! I'd also have more time to get through my samples!
