The information card was pasted into the lid of the box. The products and their corresponding values were listed on the card.
BATH Bomb Bar (3 oz.)- $4
This bath bomb bar smells great (I received the Shea Butter) and while I used it in the bath, they also recommend using it as a pre-pedicure foot soak as well. It was moisturizing from the Argan oil but I didn’t feel overly greasy when I got out of the bath.
Demeter Sunshine Roll On Perfume Oil (0.29 oz.) – $12.00
I’ve been wearing Demeter fragrances for probably 20 years now. I typically buy their fruity fragrances like Pineapple and Golden Delicious. While I love Demeter fragrances I always wish they had more staying power. This roll on oil is a perfect solution. It lasts way longer than their sprays and the sunshine scent smells amazing. It smells warm and clean. What’s your favorite Demeter fragrance? They have so many! Though the information card lists the price as $12, the Demeter website is showing this roll on for $9.
Southern Magnolia Minerals Goddess Bronzer (0.28 oz.) – $16.99 (on sale for $12)
This bronzer is made with 100% mineral pigments. It is long lasting and blends well, but it was too sparkly for me. I’ve swatched it below. I think this could work well for someone with darker skin or even mixed with body lotion for an all-over shimmer body product.
Z Palette Mini – $5
Yay I finally own a palette! I’ve been getting individual eye shadow pans in my beauty boxes and haven’t had a palette; I’m so excited to receive this. This palette will hold three round eyeshadow pans. It’s portable, has a magnetic see-through lid and is a great size to keep in my bag.
This pink pan is a perfect fit for the Z Palette and can be used as an eye shadow or a blush. It’s free of petroleum-based oils, talc, and fragrances. I like this color with my skin tone, very pretty!
These are swatches for the eye shadow/blush pan and the bronzer.
Verdict: I’m really happy with The Better Beauty Box and I think it meets an underserved demographic. I like that the products are more natural than many beauty boxes. This particular box was more make-up focused than last month’s box. My favorite items this month were the perfume oil, palette and bath bomb bar. The value was more than double the cost of the box and I was happy with that.
