Now, onto the items!
Skin & Co. Truffle Therapy Cleansing Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $30
This cleansing oil is applied to dry skin and it does a great job of removing makeup. (Massage into your skin then remove with warm water.) And don’t forget to shake this oil before using!
Babor’s Ampoules – Value $36
This set includes 7 ampoules – in impressive packaging!
There are 4 Hydra Plus Active Fluid vials, and 3 Active Night vials. And here’s something I wasn’t expecting:
The ampoules are completely sealed glass vials. You have to break them open with this plastic tool that comes in the kit. (Fortunately, this was a very simple snap to make and gave a clean cut on the glass – no glass shards everywhere like I feared!)
The formulas were both hydrating and gentle on my skin. (One word of caution, though – they are fragranced.)
This is one of my favorite discoveries in the box. First, how gorgeous is the packaging?
The formula itself is super moisturizing, and I love the shimmer/pink finish. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Dome Beauty Diamond Shadow in Sun Stone – Value $29
This eyeshadow is GORGEOUS! I’m so impressed with this formula – the pigment and the shimmer are stunning. Here it is swatched (beneath the lipstick):
I’m loving all the shimmer!
This eyebrow multi-tasker includes both eyebrow gel/primer to keep brows in place, and fibers to make your eyebrows look thicker:
The gel is tinted in medium/dark, and the fibers are a little lighter:
Overall, I thought this gave a natural, fuller-looking brow, but the primer/gel was on the dark side, so it won’t work for everyone.
Figs & Rouge Night Detox Serum – Value $41
This is a super-lightweight gel serum – I love how it felt on my skin and it absorbed so quickly, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $183 – that’s amazing for the $30 price I paid as a subscriber! The lipstick and eyeshadow alone make this box worth the cost to me, and everything else just feels like an extra bonus. What do you think of the GlossyBox Limited Edition Holiday 2016 Box?
