Now, onto the items!
Mio Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak – 53 ml Value $10.60
I’ve sampled the Mio brand before and I really like it. Their formulas are free of ingredients you may want to avoid, and the scents are usually great, too.
This bath soak has a refreshing minty scent, and the formula is designed to basically do all the things:
- Anti-inflammatory Andiroba Oil eases muscle aches and pains
- Epsom Salts relieve cramps
- Horse Chestnut Seed Extract soothes bruises and restores tired legs.
- Sage and Basil to reinvigorate your senses.
- Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil, Citrus Lemon Peel, Cypress Leaf Oil and Lavender to alleviate insomnia, stress and anxiety
- Fig Extract encourages natural skin renewal
I think this bottle should be good for 2 uses. Now I just need to have an intense workout so I can justify using it!
Polaar Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $11
This lip balm is perfection. It’s free of parabens, fragrance, and color, it is super moisturizing, and it’s not too shiny. Needless to say, I’m glad this is the full-size item in the box!
Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Intense Oil Creme Pre-Shampoo Treatment – 25 ml Value $6
This oil cream is designed to be used as a weekly nourishing hair mask. I left it on for about 10 minutes before I shampooed my hair, and the scent is FANTASTIC! Plus, I love that Alterna products are all free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, etc. (I can’t recommend this haircare brand enough.)
I wasn’t sure how much to use (it doesn’t say on the tube) so I went with almost all of it. It was easy to rinse out, and then I used my regular shampoo and conditioner. I can definitely tell a difference in the softness of my hair the next day. My curls are more defined, too. And even though I used the whole tube (which might have been overdoing it), my hair wasn’t greasy at all.
OSKIA London Renaissance Mask – 12 ml Value $14.50
This mask is a rose-colored gel that turns into a white cream mask when you massage it into your skin. Once it has changed colors, let it sit for 10-20 minutes, then rinse off. It has a faint rose scent, and it was gentle on my skin. Most importantly, it left my skin feeling very soft and hydrated!
Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel – 10 ml Value $10.60
This peel is a cream you massage into your skin and let sit for 10 minutes before rinsing/removing it. Whenever I see the word “peel” I worry that it will irritate my skin, but this one was so gentle and left my skin ridiculously soft after using it.
Laura Geller Lip Liner in Cabernet – FULL SIZE! Value $18
(Subscribers will receive one of three shades.)
Here it is swatched:
It goes on smoothly and has great pigment. And this color works well for my skin tone, too!
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 $76 – I think that’s amazing for a $22 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $15 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.)
The brands, sample sizes, and packaging are great – I can’t recommend this box enough!
