Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
This month’s theme is “Wanderlust.”
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal – Value $38
I was so excited to see BECCA in this box!
This is a creamy highlighter that is so easy to blend. You can build it to exactly the shimmer level you want, and the shimmer particles are very fine so you have a glow NOT a sparkle!
Here it is swatched (not blended in):
Shea Terra Organics African Black Soap – Value $8
I’ve sampled Shea Terra before, and I love their natural formulas. This soap uses ash as one of its key ingredients to help clear skin and prevent acne. (One word of caution, though, make sure to form a lather in your hands and then apply to your face – never apply the bar directly to your face.)
Fancy Hands Fan – Retail Value $27
This was the surprise of the box for me!
This fan is made from cherry wood and cotton and imported from Isreal. Admittedly, I’m not sure if I’ll use this, but maybe I can look to Christina Aguilera for some inspiration! 🙂
Mountain Rose Hibiscus High Tea and Bag – Value Listed $8
This tea blend is made with: Organic Hibiscus flowers, organic Rosehips, organic Lemongrass, organic Orange peel, organic Spearmint, organic Rose petals and organic Stevia.
It smells lovely, but I prefer when tea doesn’t have any stevia or sugar blended into the mix.
(And I thought it was a little weird that this bag didn’t have any sort of branded packaging/nutritional info/brewing tips, etc.)
Karuna Exfoliating Foot Masks – Value $21 total
(Each foot mask includes a set of booties.)
Foot masks are one of my favorite beauty “treat ‘yo self” items, so I couldn’t wait to try these out! You only have to wear them for 10-20 minutes, and the result is super moisturized and softer feet!
(If you’ve tried Baby Foot before, these are different. Instead of having to wash off the excess formula when you take off the booties, you’ll massage it into your feet.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $102. The value is pretty good for a $65.99 luxury box, but if you don’t like all the items it might be a miss. I’m loving the foot masks, Becca highlighter and soap in this box, so that clears the cost of the box.
