Mecca Beauty Loop L1 Unboxing

Hello, beautiful people! Today brings another unboxing post into the forefront -- this time, one from Mecca. I haven't frequented Mecca in quite a while, so there will come a time where I will likely stop receiving these. My financial goals for 2016 are to be more sensible for my spending, so splurges at Mecca are going to be a rare occurrence.


Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen || You can never have too much sunscreen, right? I have a larger sample size of Mecca Cosmetica's SPF30+ facial sunscreen, so I was slightly disappointed to get such a small sample for this -- but hey, you can't win them all. I'm still quite excited for this; I like its small size, because it'll be better for travelling than my other samples. A 75ml tube costs $40, and I received a 5ml tube worth about $2.67.

Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment || I'm pretty excited to get this as well! I've wanted something from the Josie Maran line ever since it launched, but with the whole "trying to be fiscally responsible" thing, I have abstained. This product is called a "treatment" -- I'm going to say that's a fancy word for "moisturiser". Regardless, I am going to savour every drop of this product. Who knows how long it will be before I can afford something like this? A 30ml bottle of this retails for $79, and I received a 2ml sachet worth about $5.27.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil || YAY! Another product that I'm excited to try! Bumble and Bumble is another one of those brands that I have longed to try, but the reason behind this particular abstinence is that I could never quite work out which product would be right. This will give me a real chance to try a product that I have heard about before, and see if it's something that I would like to add to my still-developing hair care routine. A 100ml bottle retails for $56, and my sample is 30ml, which works out to be worth about $16.80.

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment || Another high end brand (of course), but one that I don't often give much thought to. This sachet might be small, but it promises to be powerful: this treatment is meant to repair the eye area and promote youthfulness. Obviously the issue of youth isn't something that I need to worry about, but I've used some eye moisturisers in the past that have actually dried out that area of my face! I think it will be nice to use this, especially with the number of long, study-filled nights ahead of me. A 15ml tube of this is $65, making my 1ml sachet worth about $4.33.

Beauty Loop Box Value: $29.07

That's all that was in the Level 1 box for this quarter! I'm excited to use every single product in it, and if I could purchase all of the things... Let's face it, I probably would. Have you used any of these products before? Or anything from these brands? Let me know!

    1. It was! I think I got this in September or October, and I had it scheduled for November -- except I put in January. Gotta roll with it sometimes! XD

      And yeah, I think there's another coming out this month at some point. Not sure I'm getting it, though!

  5. Ohhh that hydrating treatment sounds lovely! I agree with you about being more financially responsible, I am too and it actually feels really good in the long run, paying for important things alone without using the overdraft is like a 'yessss girl I got this!!' kinda moment :p

    1. It was such a dream to use! It also lasted for quite a while too -- I find that most moisturiser samples last about three applications, and this one lasted twice as long. I completely agree about the YESSS moments as well; I spent so much over Christmas that I've had to be really careful about where I use my money.

      Not gonna lie, though, I'm also saving for my next big splurge -- my foundations are beginning to empty! :D
