Libbie Club August Box

This is Augusts Libbie Club box with three full sized items (and a few small samples, nice extra) I have tried and tested them all out.

Mizon Placenta Ampoule Cream - is a double functioning cream that improves skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Highly enriched plant placenta extract supplies rich nutrients to cells
What is Plant Placenta - Plant placenta is produced in the heart of young buds. It is used to nourish the fruit during its growth. Plant Placenta is rich in amino acids, peptides, minerals and trace elements.
Tested results - After researching found out this was a plant placenta and not animal parts I was happy to try this. It is made by Mizon a Korean brand they are know for the unusual products like the snail cream (from snail slime not snails, although snail slime......), which a small sample was sent in the box to try (not used yet). I Loved this cream, the smell is a mild lavender and it has a rich smooth texture that sinks quickly into the skin. It make my skin feel hydrated and smooth I think it was my favourite product and I would repurchase this I think it will be a very good cream for weather when my skin gets sensitive and dry.

Nizz Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick - this is a Vegetarian, Hypo-allergenic and Paraben-Free lipstick. Made with a blend of fair trade butter, oils and waxes, for an ultra smooth application and the creamy finish.
Tested results - I like that this is a veggie lipstick and paraben-free I am trying to buy more veggie and vegan brands. The lipstick has a highly pigmented colour, we were given nude shades, mine was a a couple of shades lighter than my natural lip colour so very retro looking. I found it super soft and it did go on very smoothly, I was surprised it had a nice matte finish. Again I think this will be good in winter as it keep my lips hydrated.

Indeed Labs Nanoblur Instant Skin Finisher - optical prism technology gives your skin a naturally airbrushed effect. Using light diffusing ingredients.
Gives a smooth and mattified appearance to the skin
Diffuses the appearance of enlarged pores and shine
Softens appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Works in seconds
Can be applied to multiple areas, including face and neck
Covers and reduces the appearance of redness and broken capillaries.

Tested : I found this product really good on top of sunscreen, sunscreen makes me shiny looking (not a great look) and dabbing some Nanoblur on top gave my skin a matte look so no shiny head.

How Libbie Club works - You pay a one off fee and they send 3 full sized produces to test and review via their site you get a boutique area (Libbie Shop link above), you are encouraged to share the reviews on social media, my instagram and twitter to help them promote the products (I love testing the products and trying out new things). If you review the products, share and someone buys only one item (you can even be the person to buy the item, which I already have this month some more Girl meets brushes they have 20% off and are really good makeup brushes, so I will be getting next months box) you get another box the next month to review you don't pay anything else.
They encourage you to give real reviews which is what I am going to write anyway.  There are longer reviews on my Libbie Boutique and all the current discounts on products :)


  1. Hello Michelle, a vegetarian lipstick sounds very good and I too was happy to read that we are speaking of PLANT placenta. :) I think Korean cosmetics manufacturers are considered very good. However, snail cream is something I wouldn't use.
    Thank you for the very interesting post!
    Have a lovely weekend! xx

  2. Hi Sara, yes all the plant based and veggie products are good, I am also a bit put off by the snail cream although it is not made of snails which makes me happeir, but their slime.....mmmm...I am not sure I am happy with slime on me.
    Have a great weekend :)
