Beauty Junky Detox Pamper Pack – Value $10.99
Beauty Junky Detox Pamper Pack – Value $10.99?
I don’t normally treat myself to beauty products like this, so I was excited to dig in and see what they’re all about. I started with the cucumber & aloe vera face mask and was surprised to find it was basically just lotion with an artificial cucumber scent. Upon closer inspection, I realized the package has the word “fragrance” in small print; it doesn’t actually claim to have any natural ingredients nor revitalizing effects—I think the idea is more that it’s fun to put something on your face and chill for 15 minutes. I admit, I enjoyed my 15 minutes of quiet!
The same concept was true of the eye gel pads, hair mask, and foot cream that came along with this “face mask.”
Following my little at-home spa treatment, I took a shower using the included exfoliating body scrub and wash. I’ll admit, as soon as I saw the word “exfoliating,” I thought to myself that it was almost guaranteed to contain microbeads, which have proven to be horrible for the environment, but I was delighted to find that the back of the bottle claims this body wash is paraben- and phthalate-free, not tested on animals, and does not contain microbeads. I feel clean enough, but I really wasn’t a fan of the extremely artificial “juicy grapefruit” scent—I felt like I was bathing myself in candy.
Loofah – Value $3?
I forgot to use this loofah in the shower, but it’s pretty classic as far as loofahs go. I like the cute striped ribbon loop on it.
Girlfriend! Twisty Microfiber Hair Turban – Value $14.19
Now, this is spiffy! It’s a special hair towel made from an absorbent microfiber material. It’s designed so that its elasticized edges hug your head, and it twists and buttons in the back to stay in place.
My hair is a little too short to all fit in the towel, but it’s a cool concept!
Olly Nutrition Goodbye Stress, 2 servings – Value $1.33 (buy 42 gummies for $13.99)
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Nail Polish, Fuchsia Power – Value $2.49
Next up, a mug of refreshing tea and some…stress relief gummies?…I don’t totally understand the concept of these, but they definitely tasted good! I’ve tried Tazo’s Refresh Mint tea before and knew it to be delicious. This is where I would paint my nails if I were going to. This bright pink color isn’t in my palette, but I think I’m pickier than most.
Beauty Junky Beauty Boost Trio – Value $7.00
Here’s another little set of lotions: a face mask, hand cream, and hair mask. Since I had already showered, I just tried the hand cream. Consistent with my previous experiences, this had a really fake cucumber scent. This was also weird: when I peeled back its tab to open it, a sealed layer remained behind. When I punctured it, the lotion kind of exploded. It seemed like a flukey thing, maybe as a result of it being kind of cheap.
CampusCube Exclusive “I Woke Up Like This” Pillowcase – Value $10?
Finally, this pillowcase. It’s 100% cotton and made in the USA. It came out of the package extremely wrinkled, so I steamed it and tossed it on my guest room bed to showcase its full potential. As you can see, it’s completely not my style, but for someone with different tastes, it’s really fun and cute.
Verdict: It was so much fun to open this Spa Aah box and see it bursting with a ton of colorful goodies. I can only imagine a college student receiving this box will feel very loved! While I didn’t find the contents to be the highest quality, nor were they really my style (I’m 6 years out of college, but even back then these items wouldn’t have been ‘me’), they add up to about a $65 value, which makes it great deal. I’d just make sure the recipient of the box would be into these types of products before dishing out the $39.95.
