Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream – 40 ml Value $9.60
I’m always impressed with Ahava Hand Cream – it’s a rich formula, and a little goes a long way, so this tube should last for a while. (It’s about a third the size of the full-size version.)
Replenix All-trans-Retinol Enriched Eye Repair – .21 oz Value $35.90
(This item is a bonus – all subscribers will receive one bonus product this month.)
This is a great size sample for an eye cream! The formula is nourishing and absorbs quickly, too.
SmartFX Smart Lash Advanced Eyelash Enhancer – Full-Size Value $49.95
This serum is designed to boost eyelash growth for healthier, fuller looking lashes. This full-sized tube should be enough to see results, too.
The reviews of this product mention that it burns if you get it in your eyes, so be extra careful when applying. (Also – kind of a bummer that a product you are applying right next to your eyeball burns your eyes, right?)
If you are a little too nervous to apply to your eyelids, you can also use this on brows to boost brow growth!
Cotz Face Natural Tint SPF 40 – 5 g Value $2.35
This Natural Tint has a matte finish and blends in well. (Almost no coverage, but it does give a nice blur effect.)
I swatched this in a lower photo before blending it in so you could see the color. (Also, my sample was a clear oil at first – make sure to shake the tube a bit before opening.)
Vita Liberata 10 Minute Tan – 1 oz Value $7.80
This self-tanner is formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates, and it gave my skin a natural color.
I just wish it didn’t have that self-tanner smell! (If you’ve found a self-tanner that doesn’t smell like self-tanner, please let me know!)
The color from this self-tanner is very subtle, too. If you are easing into the idea of trying a self-tanner, this would be the perfect one to try.
Here it is swatched beneath the COTZ to give you a good idea of the tone:
(It blends out a lot more than that, though.)
Daily Concepts Wash Cloth – FULL SIZE! Value $14
I love Daily Concepts washcloths!
It’s made with a stretchy cotton fabric with nylon loops for exfoliation.
The handles make it easy for cleaning hard to reach areas, and it has a tag that lets you know when it is time to replace it:
(Time to get a new one when the text fades.)
And it comes with a suction cup, too.
NuFace Prep Cloth (1 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.
Tula Hydrating Day and Night Cream – .5 oz Value $15.30
(Good to know for swaps – this product has a foil seal.)
I’ve sampled Tula before, and I’m a fan of the line. This moisturizer is hydrating without being greasy, so it works well for both day and night, and I like the clean scent.
Manna Kadar Runway Ready – 8 ml Value $16.80
Another good sized sample, and a Manna Kadar product I haven’t sampled before! This primer gave my skin a super smooth finish, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $152! That’s a great value for a $24.95 box. When I first saw the full spoilers for this box, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. But, after sampling everything, I’m impressed. While I would have loved to see at least one more full-sized beauty item, I’ll use everything in this box, and many of the sample sizes are generous.
