Now, onto the items!
Skin Chemists 24 Hour Aqua Repair Facial Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $49.50
Yes to full-size skincare products! And this serum is pretty impressive, too. It was gentle on my skin and absorbed almost immediately. It has a powdery perfume scent, so it might not work for everyone, but I didn’t mind it!
St. Tropez Instant Tan Gloss – 1 oz Value $4.65
This is a wash-off tan product that adds a hint of color and shimmer to your skin. I was impressed with how quickly it dried, and I didn’t have any issues of it rubbing off my clothing. It really made my pale legs look much better without looking like I had applied self-tanner. (Swatched in lower photo.)
PUR Minerals Disappearing Act Concealer in Light – 1.7 g Value $14.50
This creamy conceal provided decent coverage (and this is a great sized sample, too). If you have particularly dark undereye circles like I do, I recommend using a different conceal for that problem area though – this didn’t give me enough coverage without feeling like I was heavily caking it on. (My go-to undereye concealer is IT Cosmetics!)
Here is the concealer swatched underneath the Instant Tan Gloss:
The top swatch is the the tan gloss with no blending, the middle swatch is it blended in.
Starskin Eye Catcher – Value $5.50
These eye masks are described as “second skin” and I’d say that’s a pretty accurate description! Unlike other eye mask gels I’ve tried, these didn’t have any type of solid form. (Think of them more as if you cut two eye patches out of a thin sheet mask.)
These are designed to “effectively reduce the appearance of eye puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles, resulting in a refreshed appearance.”
My skin felt hydrated and refreshed after using them – but no amazing visual differences in the appearance of my skin.
Redken Heatcure Mask – Value $7.80
This hair mask felt a little gimmicky to me. You tear off the front label (with the Heat Cure sticker on it), and that activates the heating mechanism. Then you shampoo your hair while you wait for the hair mask to heat up for a few minutes. This results in a warm (not hot) hair mask you apply and leave on for about 10 minutes.
I’m pretty sure I could have gotten the same results by just running the foil packet under hot water for a minute, but I guess this was easier!
The mask itself was lovely. It left my hair super soft. (Not too different from any of the non-heated masks I’ve tried, though!)
Caudalie VineActive 3 in 1 Moisturizer – 15 ml Value $15
I love the scent of this moisturizer! It’s lightweight, hydrating, and absorbs almost instantly – all the markers of a fab skincare product!
And this box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine:
I love getting this mini mag with the box – it’s a fun extra, and the size is great for throwing in your purse, too.
The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $1o2 – I think that’s amazing for a $22 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $16 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.)
Plus I love trying out brands and beauty products that aren’t common in US subscription boxes. The St. Tropez Instant Tan Gloss is a great discovery for summer, too!
