Now onto the items!
ERNO LASZLO Phelityl Cleansing Bar – (17g/ 0.6oz.) Value $5
I love getting Erno Laszlo soaps in subscription boxes, but these samples are SO tiny! This facial cleansing soap has a really subtle and lovely scent, and it made my skin super clean and smooth without drying it out.
These soaps are always such a treat to get in boxes, but I have yet to splurge for the full-size version (it’s $45 a bar!)
Patchology Flashpatch Lip Gel – Value $2
Just when I think they’ve created sheet masks for everything they can…. lip masks! I gave this one a try, but ended up taking it off in a few minutes – it was weird not being able to talk with it on! (And I can’t say I noticed any moisturizing benefits from the few minutes I had it on.)
Danielle Creations Rose Gold Curved Tweezer – Value $8
Rose gold is everywhere these days! I love the curved design of these tweezers, and they work pretty well too. (Not as well as my beloved Tweezerman tweezers, but a pretty close second.)
DS Laboratories Spectral.Lash Eyelash Stimulator – FULL SIZE! Value $40
This is interesting! I’ve always been intrigued by lash lengthening/growing products, but also a little afraid of them. The tip of this one is a little scary looking, too:
It has a built-in fuzzy tip to help apply the product to lashes/eyelid. I tried it once and it didn’t irritate my eyes, so I’m going to keep it up and see if I get results (lashes appearing 25% longer in 2 weeks) like it promises.
Glytone Enhance Brightening Complex – 3 ml Value $7
This product is designed to help brighten dark spots. I thought the product was pretty gentle on my skin, and it absorbed quickly. (I wouldn’t recommend using it right out of the shower, though. That was the one time I used it where it was a little irritating.)
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener – 7 ml Value $6.75
I’ve sampled this primer before and it works well! My skin feels smoother and ready for makeup. I can’t say I notice any special difference between this and other primers, so I likely wouldn’t buy this in full-size, but I’ll use every drop of this sample.
Liftlab Skin Rejuvenation Purify + Clarify Daily Cleanser – 1 oz Value $14.75
(Good to know for swaps – this has an inner foil seal.)
This cleanser is sulfate and paraben free! It’s designed to work as both a cleanser and exfoliator (plus a detox mask if you leave it on for 3-5 minutes.)
I really like this formula. It provides a really creamy lather, and the exfoliation is minor enough that you can use it every day. The only caveat is that I found it to be a little drying, so you’ll likely need a moisturizer after using it.
NIA 24 Treatment Catalyst – FULL SIZE! Value $71
I thought this was a sample when I first saw it (it’s only 15 ml) so I’ve been using it pretty liberally (I love this serum – it feels so good on my skin). But now that I’m writing the review and see this is the full-size version, I need to use it a little more sparingly! I think I’ll scale down to 1-2 drops per usage!
In addition to being an antioxidant-rich serum, it’s designed to help other skincare products easily absorb, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $155! Amazing! I’m always so impressed with this subscription. They always deliver on quality skincare products, and there’s usually a beauty tool or makeup product in the box to round it out.
