This month’s theme is Jetsetter:
“This month’s box has been packed with holiday treats to get you glowing and radiant in time for your dream vacation.”
Cowshed Cow Pat Moisturising Hand Cream 1.69fl oz, Value $4
I am always down for more hand cream. This made my hands feel very silky but the scent was a bit too perfume-y for me.
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing .75 fl oz, Value $21
This face cream (thanks to Heather for helping me figure out this is for my face) is made with sesame and sweet almond oils. It has a light citrus smell and I really liked the way it absorbed into my skin. The lotion wasn’t too thin and left my skin looking hydrated and not greasy.
Korres Bergamot Pear Showergel 1.35 fl oz, Value $2
This is a clear shower gel that smells citrusy in the bottle. It lathers lightly on the skin, releasing more fragrance and leaving the skin lightly perfumed. It has a lot of hard to pronounce ingredients but does say that it’s contents are 87% natural.
Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream .2 fl oz, Value $33
This is fancy eye cream that looks thick out of the bottle but thins out instantly when applied and melts into the skin. It’s lightly tinted and helped brighten my under eye circles. I’m excited to try this as it’s not something I would have tried otherwise – a regular size bottle goes for around $70.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Diamond Range BB Cream .5 fl oz, Value $6
I usually assume all BB creams from subs will be too dark for me. This one looked to dark on my wrist, but only just. I used it on my face and it does a nice job of lightly evening out the red areas of my face. My face feels hydrated and firmer. The more I blended it into my face the better it matched my skin tone. I like that it has SPF 15 and I can see myself using this on my more and more frequent no make up days.
Mr Blanc Teeth Whitening Strips 3 sets, Value $8
These look pretty much like the Crest strips I’ve been using. Inside the foil pack are two clear strips, one for your top teeth and one for the bottom teeth. These stick best when your teeth are dry and are meant to be left on for 30 minutes. It looks like the regular packs come with 14 sets of strips so you probably need to use them for 14 days straight for the best results.
TanOrganic Self-Tanning Oil .8 fl oz, Value $9
This travel-sized self-tanning oil is a liquid product. I don’t self tan but the product is said to give you glow while keeping your skin moisturized and flake-free. And, if you want a deeper golden shade, you can reapply after about 6-8 hours.
Elle UK Magazine July 2016 Value $6
The box also came with the July 2016 issue of Elle UK. It’s a smaller magazine size than US magazines, which I like. It reminds me of the fancy UK hair magazines my hair stylist gets that I treat as my secret source for the best hair styles.
The Verdict: This box has a value of about $89 dollars which is pretty good for a $22 box. The highest value item is the eye cream, which I’m looking forward to using as my day eye cream. I hope I don’t love it too much though, because the full-size is pricey! I really like the shower gel and will be packing it on my summer travels, that is if any is left and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to resist putting this in the shower right now. I was impressed by the BB Cream and look forward to seeing how it holds up to my oily skin. The Cowshed hand cream might be too fragranced for me but I know I’ll give it a few more tries because I loved how silky it made my hands feel. Overall, impressed with the value in this box and liked trying new products from brands I hadn’t heard of. I wish I’d gotten a full-size item but the travel-sized items do fit with the Jetsetter theme.
