Now, on to the items!
Laurel Whole Plant Organics Facial Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $96
This serum is made with all organic ingredients, and no surprise, it smells lovely! (I’m always a fan, of a natural, herbal scent when it comes to skincare.)
You only need a drop or two to cover your full face, so this should last for a while. It absorbs pretty quickly but still gives a sheen to your skin. I think the beauty term is “glow” or “radiance” and I’d have to agree!
Naturallogic Ancient Earth Micro Exfoliate – 2 oz Value $20
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed to see that this isn’t full size. (It’s the travel sized, 2 oz version, compared to the 4 oz full-size version.)
Size complaints aside, this formula is fantastic. It’s a mousse-like whipped facial scrub that is SO gentle. It has both fine exfoliation particles and a fruit enzyme to help brighten and even skin tone. It left my skin feeling soft and clean – but not dried out.
H For Love Lip Glace in Root & Berry – FULL SIZE! Value $17
I’ve sampled this before thanks to Boxwalla, and I’m a fan!
This tinted lip balm is has a sweet, minty flavor. It provides a nice sheen and a wash of color. Here it is swatched:
Vo. Bath & Co. Citrine Lotion Body Scrub – 6 oz Value $22.50
This is the best body scrub I have ever tried. EVER!
It’s a fine sugar scrub, so it’s gentle, there’s the perfect amount of shea butter to leave your skin moisturized after you rinse it off, and the citrus scent is so fresh, clean, and fabulous!
I’m 100% going to buy more of this after my jar is empty – it’s too good to live without it now that I’ve sampled it!
Pure Anada Cosmetics Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $14
Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting much from this mascara when I sampled it. (My general experience with all-natural mascaras is that they are great for a subtle, natural look, but not for the volume, length, and drama I want in a mascara.)
But, now after applying a few layers, I am seriously impressed! You can still get that subtly-enhanced natural look with just one coat, but I got major volume and length with multiple coats! This is the best all-natural mascara I’ve ever tried!
This was a cute little bonus, and it reminded me of the time Ross ate too much Maple Sugar Candy!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $170.
Considering it cost $120 + $20 shipping to the US, I was hoping for a higher value. UPDATE: This cost $120 + $20 CAD, so about $112 total USD. (I really think all the beauty products should be full-size if you are paying over $100 a box!)
The value concern aside, everything included is a high-end, all-natural, and all-fabulous beauty product. The curation here is excellent, and I’ve discovered some brand new favorites!
