The information card was pasted into the lid of the box. The products and their corresponding values were listed on the card.



Willow Tree Minerals Natural Facial Cleansing Bar - Value $3.50

This facial cleansing bar has an invigorating wild spearmint scent. It was perfect for washing my face in the shower to wake me up for work. It lathered nicely and didn’t leave my face feeling tight at all.

Willow Tree Minerals Cream Concealer Trio - Value $17.85

These all-natural cream concealer sticks are enhanced with essential oils. The willow concealer is green and is meant for hiding red areas like acne. It also contains tea tree oil. The sunflower concealer is yellow and is intended for under eye circles or bruises. The tea rose concealer is pink and can be used as an eye shadow primer or eye brightener. I found these concealers a bit difficult to blend in smoothly.


Here are all three concealers swatched.


Bobby Pins - Listed Value $3.50

I love the colors of these bobby pins! They are great for holding back my daughter’s hair as we grow out her bangs.

E.L.F. Travel Mirror - Value $4.51

This is a sturdy travel mirror that is regular on one side and magnifying on the other. It clicked closed nicely and stayed closed in my bag so I won’t have to worry about it getting broken. I think this is a great staple to include in a tween/teen box.



Mitty Flawless Finish - Listed Value $3.00

This biodegradable manicure tape makes stamping and glittering your nails much neater and easier. It was simple to apply and remove.

Verdict: I really enjoy my The Better Beauty Box each month. Unfortunately, the item with the largest value (concealer trio) wasn’t something I felt blended well so I don’t feel I’ll get much use from it personally. However, I love the wild spearmint facial soap so that is a nice new discovery for me. The value was more than $30 this month which I am happy with. I’m so glad that this box continues to bring many “green” products into the lives of tweens and teens who are just learning to develop their own beauty routines.

What do you think of this month’s The Better Beauty Box?
