Now, onto the items!
Mellow Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow in Peach – FULL SIZE! Value $8
This eye shadow has excellent pigment and a subtle shimmer.
It would work well in the corners of your eye to brighten eyes, and on your brow bone, too. Here it is swatched:
Next up, an item to help you remove your eyeshadow!
Glov Quick Treat – Value $5
This glov is like a finger puppet sized version of Makeup Eraser. You just add water and it removes makeup – no makeup remover needed! Here it is on to give you a much better idea of what it is:
The precise finger application is great for removing eye makeup, but this little glov is handwash only – so I’m sticking with my machine washable Makeup Eraser!
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.
Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel – .25 oz Value $7
I love any beauty product that promises quick results. 3 Minute peel? I’m in! This product goes on wet skin, then you massage it into your face with wet hands for about 2-3 minutes. (I recommend using it in the shower.) The gel is designed to bond with dead skin and form solids while you are rubbing it in. This happened to me, but to be honest, I couldn’t tell a difference between the results from this peel and any other face scrub.
Still a good product, but not a life-changing, let-me-spend-$48-on-the-full-size-version item.
System Professional Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir – 1 oz Value $24
This hair oil has a sweet, sugar scent – I love it! The actual formula is designed to help strengthen and repair your hair. A little goes a long way with this oil – 1 pump was perfect for my hair. 2 pumps made it look a little greasy.
James Read Gradual Tan H20 Tan Mist – 1 oz Value $9.40
I didn’t have the best results with the James Read Overnight Tan Sleep Mask, so I was a little hesitant with this spray, but I gave it a try!
The application is easy (just close your eyes and spray a fine mist on your face), and the self-tanner smell is pretty subtle. It takes a few minutes to dry, and then results will show over time. I might have gone too cautious with my first attempt because I can’t see any difference a day later! But, if you’re hesitant with face self-tanners like I am, this gradual one seems to be pretty goof-proof. You just might not get a tan at all!
Scrub Love Hydrating Coconut Oil Body Scrub in Coconut Cranberry – 100 g Value $9
This scrub is made with all natural ingredients, and it smells SO good! I need more cranberry-scented beauty products in my life! The formula felt pretty dry out of the package, so I wasn’t expecting this to be a very moisturizing scrub, but when I rinsed it away I was pleasantly surprised! It left a subtle oily sheen on my skin.
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 $68 – I think that’s great 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.)
I really liked the curation this month, too. I think they did a good job of including a little of everything, and the sample sizes are great, too.
