February Enigma Discovery Box Review

Who says you need a king to make you feel like a queen? Time to indulge in all your guilty pleasures and devote more time to pampering yourself and doing things that make you feel gorgeous.So instead of constantly thinking about gifts for a significant other, treat yourself to something special with Enigma Discovery Box and I promise you'll enjoy every single item.

I'm pretty happy with it myself! I have been trying out the products from the February Discovery Box for the past week and can now say that there is something in there for everyone, so read on to see what I received.

Phyto Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo & Serum

Prevent hair thinning and densify your tresses with this Phytocyane program, which consists of the Phytocyane fortifying serum and Phytocyane revitalizing shampoo, specifically formulated to combat occasional hair loss and graying due to stress, fatigue, pregnancy and general aging.

What more can I say? I really love this restorative treatment, because it does what I wish every hair product would do - it delivers on it's promise of repair! Thank you Phyto for helping me restore my damaged hair to it's former glory.I'm currently using this regularly as part of my hair care regimen and I'm loving the results!

-Phyto Travel Hair Pouch

Leightweight and compact this is just what a savvy traveler needs.Whether you're away for the night, going on a weekend break or on your way to the salon, this zip lock pouch will carry your shampoo bottle and protect your serum vials from breakage.

- Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish - Burgundy Kiss & Winter Baby

Regardless how hot your dress is, you just can't nail the party-perfect look without a killer mani.So why not show your digits some love with these classic shades from Maybelline? These nail polishes are amazing! They go opaque in two coats, dry pretty fast without leaving any clumps or streaks behind and have a decent wear time as well.

- Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil - Ultra Black

With hair and nails covered, let's move on to eyes.Nothing wakes up eyes quite like eyeliner.Ultra Black is the darkest black Kohl that I've ever used.It glides ultra smoothly over the eyelids without any tugging or pulling.Though, it doesn't stay true to it's claim of 16 hour wear, it's soft creamy texture and great pigmentation makes it truly a winner.

- Body Bakes Soap

Unapologetically saccharine, this fresh foaming Mint Chocolate Chip soap will help you relieve tension and muscle aches after a long stressful day at work.Yummy!

-  Guerlain La petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum - Testers

Definitely not for everyone! La Petite Robe Noire is very feminine and flirty, just like the little black dress depicted on it's bottle.But you'll need to step out of your comfort zone to appreciate this fragrance.It's quite unlike anything else I own and includes many of my favourite notes, including cherry and patchouli.As well as it's substantial projection, the longevity of the scent is impressive - I'm a big fan!

- The Fondue Pot Gift Voucher

Throw in the towel on creating hocus-pocus love potions that don't work and woo that someone special with some luscious fondue.Don't forget to bring this voucher in to The Fondue Pot, for lunch or dinner to save up to 10% off your restaurant bill.This offer expires August 31, 2014.

- Enigma Shopping Voucher

Get 10% off your next purchase by taking a picture of your beloved white Discovery Box and tagging Enigma Shopping on Instagram.

Stylish and oh-so-smart, you can't go wrong with a salon gift card! Visit Toi Salon and receive 25% off any service you wish! Go ahead and schedule an appointment today, you only get one chance to make a first impression, make yours perfect.
