Normally, Nylon Box comes with a booklet to guide you through each item, as well as a sticker sheet, but it looks like mine got skipped again this month (that makes 2 months in a row). 🙁

Popsockets phone grip and stand in package

Popsockets Phone Grip & Stand – Retail Value $10

The first item is an accessory for your phone that you stick right on the back (or on to a case). They come in all different designs, but this one happens to be a neon pink lipstick illustration against a blue checkered background. Very Tron, IMO.

The back shows you various ways to use it, and you can see the pad that you use to stick to your phone.

Here it is flat on the back of my phone.

And fully extended so you can use it to hold on to by slipping it in between your fingers.

You can also use it as a stand (or propped on its side). I didn’t find this particularly helpful to any of my phone needs, so I will probably pass it on.

Get Sh*t Done Notebook by MiGOALS – Retail Value $5.95 (found on sale here for $4.17)

This pastel pink notebook is right up my alley with its sass talk and list-making abilities.  The cover has a slightly textured cloth-look with glossy white letters embossed on it, telling you to GET SH*T DONE.

It’s bound with thread and features 48 pages of half “To-Do” list pages and half lined pages.

The inside cover has a place to write your name, date started, and date finished. It also has an inspirational quote to get you motivated.

The next two pages show you how to use your new notebook. I like that they’ve given a few different ways to be as productive as you can.

The rest of the notebook is filled with pages to fill up with notes, lists, and projects. There are satisfying little bubbles to the far right to check off once you’ve completed your tasks. I love the way this is set up and can’t wait to get listing!

Amika Nourishing hair mask

Amika Nourishing Hair Mask, 2 fl oz. – Retail Value $10

First off, I always love Amika’s packaging. It’s always so bright and fun! This hair mask includes Jojoba Seed Oil and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) which promotes hair growth (something I desperately need).

directions for Amika Nourishing hair mask

The directions say you can use this either as a weekly treatment or as a daily conditioner. The product is a thick cream, definitely thicker than most conditioners, and I have thin hair, so I will probably stick to a weekly treatment on this one. It smells really nice without being overly scented. I rubbed a bit between my fingers and it felt so silky and smooth. My skin is already softer just from just that little bit. I’ll have to report back on long-term use!

DHC deep cleansing oil bottle next to packaging

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, 4.1 fl oz. – Retail Value $21

I’m becoming well-versed in facial oils, but this is my first cleansing oil. DHC is a beauty brand from Japan, which makes me immediately want to try it out. The main ingredient is olive oil and is supposed to help remove excess oil from your skin and restore radiance. It’s also fragrance-free.

The directions say to pump this into dry hands and apply to a dry face to remove any makeup or dirt. It’s a little unnerving how willing I am these days to slather oil all over my face. This time it was to cleanse instead of to moisturize though. I put two pumps of the oil into my hands and rubbed it all over my face to lift the grime from the day. I love the smell of olive oil and as soon as it was on my face I could tell it was the main ingredient. I then rinsed it away to reveal a very soft clean face. At first, it didn’t feel dry, but then I could feel my skin start to tighten, so I followed up with my normal regimen of toner and facial oil (or sometimes moisturizer).

Glamspin fidget spinner lip gloss in package

Glamspin Lip Gloss Fidget Spinner – Retail Value $10

Whoa- this has got to be the most involved trio of lip glosses I’ve ever seen. To incorporate such a pop culture phenomenon like a fidget spinner with a beauty product is kind of genius.

The three scented and flavored lip glosses are strawberry, peach, and grape, all on each of three appendages of the neon orange and pink fidget spinner. This little baby glides with ease in my fingertips.

Just open up the lid to expose the pot of gloss! I think peach is my favorite even though they all taste and smell so good! The gloss is actually pretty moisturizing as well.

The bottom shows that each lip gloss is .04 oz.

NudeStix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Freckle

NudeStix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Freckle, .10 oz. – Retail Value $24 (linked to similar colors)

This color is only available as part of the limited-edition Nude(art)ist Box Creator’s Palette which features colors created by leading beauty and lifestyle social media gurus. This looks to be full size, so I’ll value it the same as the ones you can buy a la carte.

NudeStix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Freckle with cap off

I really love this shade! It’s a deep brown/burgundy hue and is really pigmented. This one was created by makeup artist Samantha Ravndahl as part of the set.

Pencil-like sticks are my favorite way to apply lipstick because I feel like I have much more control. This formula glided one super smooth and didn’t bleed.

Even though I look a little forlorn, I am feeling this dark shade! It dried really matte and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. My only complaint is that it does feel a little dry, so I popped some balm over top to hydrate my lips a bit more.

They’ve also included an exclusive 10% off coupon code for Nylon Box subscribers.

Rad Soap Co Moon Rock Soap

Rad Soap Co Moon Rock Soap, 1 oz. – Estimated Value $1.67 (Buy a 6 oz. bar for $10)

This is a smaller sample size of the one linked, but it wasn’t marked so I weighed it to get the 1 oz. measurement. This soap’s scent is really strong and I could smell it as soon as I opened the box.

Rad Soap Co Moon Rock Soap

The back has their website, as well as a coupon code for 10% off, exclusive to Nylon Box subscribers.

Rad Soap Co Moon Rock Soap

It’s made with activated charcoal and black currant oil, along with other all natural ingredients.

The bar is supposed to draw out impurities from the skin, replenish skin cells, and tighten pores. When lathering up, this soap has a faint purple hue that washes away when you rinse. I’ll say that it definitely left my hands feeling nice and soft. I’ll be popping this into my travel case for the next trip.

Verdict: This month’s Nylon Box didn’t wow me as much as last month, but I got seven cool new products with a total retail value of $82.62 for $19.99! Again- the value here is just really out of control. I love receiving full-size products that have a high retail cost. I really like the notebook and lipstick, and the fidget spinner and cleansing oil were also pretty awesome!

  1. I think last month they hit their stride and this is another winner. I try not to have too many subscriptions at once and rotated this in to replace Boxycharm and so glad I did. I feel like, similar to Beauty Fix, this one’s staying. As someone else mentioned, what I don’t love my 7yo does. Have to say I was surprised you could get the fidget spinner at Sephora. I also want sure about the Popsocket but I’ve ended up loving it. For a terminal klutz, it makes it very simple to hold onto the phone. I’m thinking of getting a dashboard holder to clip it to.

    • Too bad they are no longer going to continue their box – I was going to subscribe; then I received the notification that Nylon was not going to continue.

  2. Hi!

    This is Emily Bliss, the Customer Care and Logistics Manager at NYLON! I just wanted to let you know that we actually decided not to include stickers any longer nor a booklet. We have a digital pamphlet available online on nylon.com (You can view it here: https://nylon.com/articles/nylon-box-november-2017) instead and found that stickers were getting a bit repetitive. Just wanted to assure you that nothing was missing from your box. If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out to me personally at [email protected]!

  3. Although I’m guessing this is not their primary target audience, this is a great mother/daughter box. What doesn’t work for me is a perfect fit for my 10-year old. She was delighted by the PopSocket and the spinner and I dug the rest. My 13-year-old son even got in on the action with the soap! We are loving this box, especially for the price.

    • It’s a family affaaaaaaair! I love it! What a fun little way to bond with your girls!

  4. I like the forlorn look on you! Is it just me who thinks that the word ‘sh*t’ is overused and kinda jarring? Not a complaint on the review but on the product.

    • Thanks, Annabella! Companies have been taking liberties lately with the s-word. Smartass & Sass had a whole theme based around it back in May. It’s certainly not for everyone.

  5. I subscribed last month for those amazing knife earrings, but this month was just meh for me. The fidget spinner was too young for my taste, and I already have plenty of the various types of beauty products in the box. I think I may just be at the point where I’m over subscription boxes. So I unsubscribed and hope that somebody on the waitlist will enjoy my spot!

    • Amy, maybe I can buy the box from you?

      • I feel the exact same way! Hopefully one of you gals can take our spots!
        And Jenny, I’d be willing to sell you mine. Includes everything but the pop socket because I can’t get it off of my phone….lol

  6. I think this looks like a great box!

  7. Bummer! Their website says subscriptions are closed right now.

  8. This is my favorite sub, every month I look forward to getting it. I usually split it up between myself and my kids. I stuck the soap into my underwear drawer. I like the smell of it but it’s really strong and thanks to sub boxes, I have a zillion types of soap. The nudestix and the notebook were my favs this month.

    • Soap in the underwear drawer is genius! You’re so kind to share with your kids!
