Marie Claire's The Parcel is a seasonal beauty subscription box, which if you get a seasonal subscription, costs $25 per box delivered to your doorstep on a quarterly basis. You can also buy a one-off box for $29.95.
My Marie Claire The Parcel - Winter Edit box arrived earlier this week. The box contains Marie Claire beauty editors' picks of the best buys to get us through the cooler winter weather.

Chapped dry lips are such a winter beauty hazard. This Lanolips product is the perfect addition to the winter Marie Claire The Parcel subscription box.
Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme
Sample Size: 5 ml. Value: $13.32. (Full sized 30ml: $80)
|Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme|
This product sounds as if it were made to order for my 40+ year old skin this winter! I loved the luxurious and effective Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Cream in the Summer Edit Marie Claire The Parcel subscription box so I am sure I will love this product also. I love sampling luxurious brand products as I am hesitant to buy them at such high prices without trying them first.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask For Intense Hydration
3 Masks. Value: $15. (Pack of 5 Masks: $25)
|Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask For Intense Hydration|
I was very happy to see these masks included in this subscription box. I find winter weather, and being indoors in heating very dehydrating on my skin. Plus being 40+ years old, my skin is drier than it used to be anyway winter or not! I find masks relaxing to use and I'm sure I will enjoy using these hydrating masks.

and Ocean Waves Sea-Salt Spray.
At first I thought this was an odd choice for the winter edit box and that it would be better suited to the summer edit box but then I realised that yes, I do like styling my hair with the tousled beachy wave look just as much in winter as in summer, so the Marie Claire peeps got it right yet again!
Woolworths Select Quick & Easy Nail Polish 30 Removal Wipes
Full sized: 30 wipes. Value: $2
"There are no excuses for chipped nails. Remove old varnish on the go with these easy-to-use wipes. Free from acetone and scented with aloe vera, they're perfect for the gym or handbag."
I'm curious to see how effective these wipes are. I'm hoping they work well as I can see myself finding them useful to keep in my handbag for when I'm out and about.

In conclusion, once again Marie Claire's The Parcel subscription box has impressed me. The products have been well selected, they are a lovely mix of high end and drug store brands, and the box itself is brilliant value! I'm really happy with the nail polish colour I received and there is nothing in this box that I won't use!
