Marie Claire Ageless Parcel - Winter Edit

A new season means a new Marie Claire Ageless Parcel subscription box landing on my door step! I love receiving this seasonal boost of new and exciting anti-ageing focused beauty products to sample. 


Marie Claire Ageless The Parcel - Winter Edit

For the Winter Edit these products range from delicate cleansers and moisturisers, to hydration boosters and treatments. All perfect products to get me through the cooler months ahead. 


Marie Claire Ageless The Parcel - Winter Edit

Listed below are the products I received in this Marie Claire Ageless Parcel Winter Edit subscription box. I have quoted the product information that The Parcel provides on its information card in italic print and I've followed this with my comments in normal print. Products are listed in alphabetical order.

Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant
Deluxe Sample Size 30ml. Value: $37.20
Full Size: 50ml RRP: $62 
Note: This product is reduced to $49.60 at RY Australia click to shop at RY Australia

"This two-in-one lotion helps renew and refine skin in just one step - the glycolic acid exfoliates and brightens skin, while the hyaluronic acid locks in moisture for continuous hydration".

This is the product I was most excited about receiving in this Marie Claire Ageless Parcel box as I am a HUGE fan of Alpha-H Liquid Gold


I have already started using this product and it has totally lived up to my expectations! It's the perfect product for anyone wanting their skin to look more radiant and more youthful! 

Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant

Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micellar Water
Deluxe Sample Size 20ml. Value: $2.56
Full Size: 250ml RRP: $31.99
Note: This product is available for $29.95 at RY Australia click to shop at RY Australia

"This cult, no-rinse cleanser is beloved by beauty editors, super models and makeup artists alike. Ideal for sensitive skin, it gently cleanses, removes makeup and moisturises, leaving skin soothed and hydrated".

This is a product that I already have in my bathroom cabinet and totally love! It is extremely effective and gentle as a cleanser. I was very happy to receive this product in my Marie Claire Parcel Ageless box. I love the tiny and cute looking 20 ml bottle. I will be re-using this bottle frequently when travelling. It's the perfect size to use on a plane. 


Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micellar Water & Light Cream

Bioderma Hydrabio Light Cream
Deluxe Sample Size 15ml. Value: $15.37
Full Size: 40ml RRP: $40.99
Note: this product is available for $39.99 at RY Australia click to shop at RY Australia

"For dry, tight and dull skin, this lightweight formula encourages skin to activate its natural moisturising processes and retain hydration".


I haven't yet tried this product but it sounds promising and seeing as I love the Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micellar Water I have high hopes for this product.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-aging Antioxidant Infusion Essence

Deluxe Sample Size 10ml. Value: $9.29
Full Size: 140ml RRP: $130

"Inspired by Korean rituals, this bio-fermented treatment hydrates and protects the skin".

As Elizabeth Arden products are a high end product with a price to match I appreciate receiving this deluxe sample sized product to trial to see how it suits my skin and its needs before deciding whether it is a product I want and need to splurge on or not.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream With SPF 50+
Deluxe Sample Size 12ml Value: $21.75
Full Size: 32 ml RRP: $58

"This hard-working formula is like seven products in one, offering coverage, sunscreen, brightening, anti-ageing benefits and more".

This is my type of multi-tasking product that will make my morning makeup and skincare routine that much faster! I love that it contains SPF 50+.

Skin Therapy Dragon's Blood Sculpting Serum

Full Size 30ml RRP: $30

"Made from dragon's blood tree sap, this natural serum is high in anti-oxidant properties, and helps to lift and smooth skin".

Another promising sounding anti-aging product that I am eager to start trying.

Conclusion
Overall this has been another brilliant value Marie Claire Parcel Ageless subscription box for an outlay of $25 as I have a seasonal subscription. The one-off subscription box price is $29.95. More info re the various subscribing options is available HERE. My calculated total value for this box is $116.17. Considering I will be using each and every one of these products I am extremely happy with it. 

Although only one product is full sized, all the sample sizes are deluxe sized. I'm perfectly happy to receive higher end deluxe samples rather than lower end full sized products as it enables me try new products I might not have splashed out on myself without trying the products first.


If you are interested in looking at previous Marie Claire Parcel Ageless beauty box contents, I have reviewed a previous edit HERE.

  1. I just stopped my subscription to the Ageless Parcel. Not because I wanted to, but I receive the regular Parcel too and decided I was just getting too many cosmetics to use at once! Naturally, I am now reconsidering...

    1. I've done the opposite. I've stopped my regular The Parcel subscription and am only getting the Ageless Parcel now but every time I see The Parcel photos and reviews come out I wonder if I was too hasty - lol!

  2. As I mentioned on Kats' blog, I'm curious about the Bioderma stuff as I've got that sort of skin (sensitive & dehydrated). Also curious about the IT Cosmetics CC cream too. I haven't signed up to any beauty boxes, but I'm seriously tempted by the Maslow & Co box. It'll have to wait until after my trip in a few months though.

    1. You could always just buy the specific products you're interested in. Where is your trip to?

    2. True. My trip is around the world, so I'll be picking up a tonne of beauty goodies along the way. Already have a double-sided wishlist!

    1. Some people say they prefer full sized products, I actually like getting these deluxe sized samples. It enables us to try out more new products.

  5. Such an awesome box, and pretty much the only one I'd consider signing up to. Love the brands they've included. Interested to hear your thoughts on the Dragons Blood and IT Cosmetics CC Cream.

  6. I've stopped subscribing to beauty boxes (even with three teen girls in the house) because I just couldn't keep up but this does look like a great one.

  7. I'm such a beauty dud. I never quite got my head around the whole thing. Maybe a beauty box would be a good way to try to do it. I won a beauty advent calendar last year in December and that was awesome. So, is there something for talented people with both wrinkles and pimples?

  21. Great value!! Loads of good stuff to combat aging skin. I'd love to try the dragon's blood. I'd be bathing in the stuff! lol

  22. I love the idea of using a CC cream with SPF 50. Great value for money!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a great box! I wish we got this in Canada. Our subscription boxes have samples so small that I can't understand why anyone would pay for them as you can get free samples like that in stores or online.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! Such great value, only $25 for all that!! Especially jealous about the AlphaH and Skin Therapy products!
