CEW and Beauty Bar's Insiders' Choice Box - Review and Unboxing

Great news: this box is STILL available at BeautyBar. I ordered 3 of these boxes Thursday night and they arrived Saturday morning. Super fast FREE shipping!

CEW and Beauty Bar's Insiders' Choice Box - Review and Unboxing

The Box: CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Box

The Cost: $25 (I paid $14 a box for three boxes with coupon codes from this post)

The Products: Beauty Bar teamed up with Cosmetic Executive Women to create a beauty box highlighting the top picks of this year’s CEW Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards.

CEW and Beauty Bar's Insiders' Choice Box - Review and Unboxing

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles – (Neutralizer shade) FULL SIZE! Value $7

I’ve seen this around, but never tried it since I have a concealer for under my eyes I already like. Finally, time to try! This goes on thin, and the neutralizer shade looked a little yellow on my skin tone. I was about to give up, but then I added my powder foundation on top and loved the results! Because it goes on so thin, it doesn’t cake up. This is now my new under eye concealer. Thank you CEW and Beauty Bar!

Loreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes – FULL SIZE! Value $8

This reminds me a lot of my current go-to mascara, Lancome Hypnose. It creates thick long lashes, and you can put on multiple layers without clumping. Another product that makes me happy I bought not 1 but 3 boxes!

L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream – 1 oz Value $10

I love L’Occitane, and this is such a classic scent. Perfect size for storing in your purse.

SuperGoop SPF 30+ Everyday – 1.6 oz Value $11

Is it just me or is this the “it” sunscreen of the summer? I feel like I’ve seen it everywhere! Adding these to the sunscreen bin!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips – (Animal Instinct) 2 sets Value $12 total

I’ve heard good things about these nail polish strips, but this pattern just isn’t for me. I wish they would have given two different options instead of the same one, but considering how awesome this box is and how little I paid, I really have no room to complain!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer – .11 oz Value $15

I haven’t tried this product yet, but it gets good reviews on Amazon, and it’s supposed to be anti-aging and waterproof.

Burt’s Bees Red Dahlia Tinted Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $7

I LOVE this product. I’m not a lipstick person, but I love a tinted balm, and I love Burt’s Bees, so I am thrilled to have 3 of these!

StriVectin-TL Tightening Neck Cream – .25 oz Value $13

I really liked the StriVectin serum I received in another subscription box, so I recommend the brand, but can’t speak to this product.

Heidi Klum Shine – .5 oz Value $2

Burt’s Bees Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion – FULL SIZE! Value $9.50

Loving that there are two Burt’s Bees products in this box! This lotion smells divine (not too strong) and it is super moisturizing (not too greasy).

Loreal Youth Code Serum Intense – FULL SIZE! Value $15

I normally stick to department store serums, but given that everything else in this box has been great, I’m guessing this serum will be excellent as well. Many of the reviews on Amazon compare this product to Lancome’s Genifique, and prefer Youth Code, so I’m very excited to try this one.

Verdict –  For $14, I received about $110 worth of top choice product. I’m so glad I purchased three boxes! I definitely recommend the CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Box, and I hope they continue to do these boxes in the future!
