Now, on to the items!
Doucce Freematic Blush in Pink Beach – Value $14
(All subscribers receive this item.)
This blush goes along with the other blush and palette subscribers received in the July box.
Like the other blush, the pigment is great, the finish is matte/semi-pearlescent, and the color works well for me, too.
Here it is swatched:
Pixi Brow Tamer – .15 oz Value $7.90
This is a great sized sample (over half the full-size version.)
It provides light hold, and didn’t make my eyebrows stiff – it’s the perfect kind of brow gel for me.
Bliss Body Butter in Blood Orange + White Pepper – 1 oz Value $4.30
(Good to know for swaps – this item has an inner foil seal.)
I’ve been a fan of Bliss citrus scents for a while now, and this one is probably my favorite. The formula is moisturizing but not greasy, too. It’s nothing new or exciting, but a solid sample!
Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara – .06 oz Value $6
(All subscribers received this item.)
(This is half the size of the travel size version.)
Props to GlossyBox for getting a new release makeup item in the box – I’ve been wanting to try this!
My first thoughts after applying it? DRAMA! This mascara gets an A from me in both volume and length! It gets a B in lash separation, but all in all, this is a fab formula!
Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Shower Gel – 1.6 oz Value $3.75
This is a foaming shower gel – a little goes a long way! The cherry blossom scent is very fragrant, the formula itself is light. (It didn’t strip my skin of moisture, and it didn’t add moisture, either.)
Doctor Babor Hydro RX Eye Pads – Value $7.25
These eye gels are designed to make your skin feel more refreshed and hydrated – and they worked! I can’t say I noticed any difference between these and many of the other eye gels I’ve sampled, though.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $43.20. That’s OK for a $21 beauty box, but not great. And if it wasn’t for the Lancome mascara, this box would feel a bit ho-hum to me. Everything is useable, but a lot of these products are things I’ve sampled before. (Still, the mascara is a great discovery!)
