Each box normally comes with a card detailing the items included with pictures. My box was missing the card this month, so we’re going straight to the items!
Danielle Creations Silky Clean Facial Brush – FULL SIZE! Value $16
I received a similar brush in the August Beauty Box 5, and this one is equally soft!
It’s designed to be used as an alternative to a Clarisonic for gently exfoliating with your facial cleanser. I absolutely love how this feels on my skin. I’ve used it on dry skin, too – love it!
Pangea Organics Facial Cream – Moroccan Argan with Willow & Rosemary – 1 oz Value $20
This facial cream is so thin it is almost a liquid, and it absorbs almost instantly. If you are looking for a lightweight moisturizer – this is it! Plus I like the natural scent, too!
Ouidad Botanical Boost Curl Energizing and Refreshing Spray – 2.5 oz Value $5.90
This spray is a lightweight detangler. It has a light, fresh, scent, and the formula is oil-free, so it didn’t weigh my hair down or make it look greasy at all.
Dermarche Labs BioREWIND PM – 3 ml Value $12.50
This is one of my favorite products in the box – I just wish the sample was larger! It’s designed to help with uneven skin tone and wrinkles, and the formula is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, etc. It absorbed quickly and made my skin feel so soft. (And it gets excellent reviews on Sephora.)
Phytomer Pionniere XMF White – Skin Translucency Cream – 3ml Value $14.80
This cream is designed to fight dark spots and wrinkles. It is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and is lightly fragranced. I liked this formula a lot – but the sample is TINY. It’s pretty much a one-time-use tube.
NuFACE Prep-N-Glow Cloth – Value $1
This is not a typical makeup remover cloth! One side is for cleansing and the other side has micro-dots for exfoliating. It did an excellent job of removing my makeup, and it left my skin hydrated, too.
Supersmile Professional Whitening Floss – Sample Value $2?
This floss sample is perfect for travel, and it’s nice and minty, too. No visible whitening difference for me, though!
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow FULL SIZE? Value $19
(BeautyFix mentioned this product was full size, but the packaging is different than the same product on the Manna Kadar site. So it may be either different packaging, and/or a different size as well.)
This pressed powder is richly pigmented and has a lovely copper shimmer. (Manna Kadar also suggests using this as a highlighter and/or bronzer.)
Here it is swatched:
Manna Kadar products have been a little over-exposed in subscription boxes lately, but at least the formulas are great!
Avene Soothing Moisture Mask – FULL SIZE! Value $26
I put this on my skin and immediately thought, “Ooo this is soothing and hydrating!” And then I realized that’s pretty much the exact name of the mask! (So, they are good at naming products!)
For this mask, you put it on for 10-15 minutes, then wipe away any excess product. It left my skin super moisturized, and I appreciate that it was gentle on my skin as well.
Tocca Beauty Eau de Parfum – Stella – 1.5 ml Value $2.50
This scent is described as having notes of Bitter Orange, Blood Orange, Watery Accord, White Freesia, Wild Diamond Orchids, Spicy Lily, Sheer Musk, Sandalwood.
As with most perfumes, this one wasn’t for me!
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – 5 ml Value $2
This is a spray for your pillow and sheets! It’s made with Lavender, Camomile, and Vetivert scents, and I really like the blend. (I have a lot of lavender scented oils thanks to subscription boxes, so it’s nice to have something that’s a little different.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $122! 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.
