Net-A-Porter Beauty Travel Kit Box Review


Every few months Net-A-Porter releases a new limited edition beauty box – and they are amazing! The packaging is beautiful, the products are top-quality (many full-size), and the value is great too. Of course, I bought this one the moment it launched!


My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).


This box is still available for purchase as of 4/26!

Summer 2017 Issue of Porter Magazine – Value $10


I didn’t realize this box also came with an issue of Porter Magazine – it was a nice surprise!


Now, onto the beauty items!


Net-A-Porter always ships their beauty kits in these resealable bubble-wrap bags. (Tip – save these for travel!)

Glossier actually sells their version of these bags because people love them so much!


Next up, the actual travel kit bag!


It measures about 8 by 6 inches, and 2.5 inches in depth.


The shiny patent leather looking material is a nice luxe detail, too.


And it fits all the goodies!


Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days – FULL SIZE! Value $48


This is the most gorgeous bronzer I’ve ever seen. First, it comes in its own little velvet bag!


And look at this gradient:


The pigment and shimmer are beautiful. You could get more shimmer if you went for just the top half, and a more matte look if you applied your brush to only the bottom half, but honestly, I didn’t have much luck in separation.

To me, it’s an overall shimmery bronzer, and I love it! (Swatched in lower photo.)


Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor – FULL SIZE! Value $25


This is one of those cult-classic beauty items that just never lived up to the hype for me.


It’s more of a moisturizing lip balm than a lipstick (which I love), but the color is really draining on me since my lips are naturally pale. It is great for layering over a lip color to create a cool hue, though!

Here it is swatched above the bronzer:



James Read Sleep Mask Tan Face – 25 ml Value $19

I was very excited to try this sleep mask. Put on a moisturizing face mask and then wake up with a golden glow? Yes, please!

Sadly, that was not my actual experience.

First, when I was putting it on I realized it smells like self-tanner. I know I shouldn’t be too surprised about that, but I was hoping the “sleep mask” part would mean a better scent!

So I put it on, fell asleep, and in the morning totally forgot I had worn it that night. Then I looked in the mirror.


The color wasn’t even, and I thought it looked more orange than golden. Then my husband Eric saw me and asked, “Do you have dirt on your face?”

The small part of me that was holding out hope that my “tan” actually looked gave up then!

This brand is one of the highest rated natural self-tanners, so I’m guessing it just doesn’t work with my skin tone. If you’ve tried it, let us know if it worked for you!


Aromatherapy Associates Mattifying Deep Cleanse Face Mask – FULL SIZE! Value $65


This face mask is amazing! It’s a gentle mud mask made with natural ingredients (including lavender) so I absolutely loved the scent. It left my skin feeling soft and clean, too.


Oribe Matte Waves – FULL SIZE! Value $42


First, let’s just take a moment to appreciate full-size Oribe in this box! YES! And like all Oribe products, this hair styling product smells amazing. I used it on damp hair, and let my hair air dry. I didn’t notice any difference in how my hair dried, but the added texture was great. It helped my hair hold curls better the next day when I styled it.


Davines SU Hair and Body Wash – 75ml Value $7.20

Like all the Davines products I’ve sampled (thanks, Birchbox) this shampoo smells great and works well. I like that this one doubles as a body wash – perfect for keeping your travel kit as light as possible!


Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $26


I’ve sampled this mascara before, and it really REALLY stays in place. (I had difficulty removing it even with waterproof makeup remover!) It irritated my eyes a bit so I don’t use it often, but if you are looking for a mascara that will no budge/flake/etc., this is for you!


LanoLips Lemonaid Lip Treatment: FULL SIZE! Value $17


The lip treatment is lovely! It’s super glossy and the sweet lemon flavor is delicious!


It is also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, etc!


Rahua Body Amazon Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $57


I’ve sampled the Rahua brand before, but only for their luxe and natural haircare products, so I was excited to try this oil from their body line!

The spray is about as fine of a mist as you can get for an oil, so it’s easy to apply and rub into your skin. I love the scent, and it gave my skin a nice glow, too.


Michael Van Clarke 3″ More Inches – Lifesaver Pre-Wash Treatment Weekender: 50ml – Value $4


This is a pre-shower treatment designed to help strengthen your hair, so you won’t need to cut it as often. You have to leave it on for 45 minutes, but hopefully it is worth it.


I couldn’t tell a difference after one use, but they recommend using it twice a week.


Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist – 30ml Value $30

This is my favorite discovery in the box. It’s the lightest/finest facial mist I’ve ever tried, and it smells like the beach! Perfect for a travel box, or a box for anyone who wishes they were traveling!


Soleil Toujours SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen – 10 g Value $4.25

This sunscreen is Vegan and gluten-free. It’s also free from parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. It absorbed into my skin almost instantly and left a smooth matte finish. Now I just wish this was a larger sized sample!


Charlotte Tilbury’s Supermodel Body – 15 ml Value $16

This lotion has a shimmer which is designed to give your skin a more toned and sculpted look. The shimmer is subtle, so this could work for everyday looks. (You will not look like you are wearing glitter!)

This lotion was fine, but I was expecting a little more from a “Supermodel Body” lotion! I’ll use this sample up, but I won’t be buying more at that price it didn’t seem like anything different from other shimmer lotions I’ve sampled.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $360! I think that is great for a $88 box – especially for these brands and products. Lots of full-size items, too! And this box was a good mix of brands I know and love, and brands that are new to me – I’m really happy with this box!

  1. Boo! out of stock !

  2. I use that tanner mask about twice a week. I really rub it in good-basically until it’s dry- spending lots of time along the hairline & ears. I also do my neck to my collarbone. It looks really natural & my husband would let me know if it wasn’t too!
    I think the key- and it’s what I do with tanner on my ghost white legs too- is spend lots of time distributing it evenly and rubbing it in extremely well.

  3. Oh Liz,
    Your review made me love this box. Just succumbed. Thanks for helping me indulge in sweet luxury! 🙂

  4. OMG – should have never read your review!!!! Was soo good, but LOVE LOVE these boxes never ever disappointed.

    Thanks a lot Liz!!!!

  5. I am so getting this box, but I’m going to wait for the hot weather to end before subbing. It looks amazing!!! I would love everything except for the self tanner. I’m already so excited.. I hope I’ll be able to wait till fall.

    • This is not a sub. This comes out twice a year, I think. I’m amazed that there are still some left for sale. They usually sell out in a heartbeat.

  6. I want that lipstick! I’m going to be watching the swap site for it.

    • You can buy that lipstick at Ulta.

  7. I absolutely loved this box. Net-A-Porter is the one box that never disappoints. I ordered a few more after receiving the first box. I have not use for any tanning products as they never work for me but my sister loves it. I find that if you have a darker skin tone, the Lipstick Queen works better on you. I don’t like the scent of Davines but I love everything else in the box.

    • So glad to hear you loved this box, too! The value is incredible! (And that makes sense about the Lipstick Queen!)

      • Some days that lipstick looks great on me – and then other days it makes me look like Elsa!

      • Btw, Aromatheapy Associates has become one of my favorite brands. I discovered that he might through Net-a-Porter holiday box 2 years ago

      • Liz, this is my absolute favorite box…ever! Every time a new one comes out, I always end up purchasing multiples. The Aromatherapy Associates mask is a dream! I’ve been buying Aromatherapy Associates on Net-a-Porter since I discovered the brand on another beauty box they did for holiday 2015. Remember that one? The one with full size Oribe shampoo and conditioner? Holy moly! That one is my favorite of all time from Net-a-Porter.

      • Same! That holiday box from a few years was incredible! Not a single dud in the whole box – so many incredible discoveries. I suppose it’s a good thing they don’t put out monthly/bi-monthly boxes – my wallet probably couldn’t take it! 😀

    • FYI, I use that lipstick to adjust other lipsticks that are too orange or brown.
      Makes them closer to a berry color.

      I get so many samples in the wrong color and hate to waste them once I’ve swatched them.

      • That’s brilliant! Thanks for the great idea! 😀

    • KarenG, off topic, but I just visited my first Jo Malone store!!! (I remember we had “talked” briefly about the awesome stores near you, and the lack of cool stores near me. 🙂 ). I visited the one in Honolulu, and of course I had to take a ton of pics in front of it. Ha! Oh! and of course, I just HAD to buy some things too! 🙂

      • Luna I was just at the Jo Malone in Royal Hawaiian in Honolulu a few weeks back. I love the lay out. Wait until you go back to Paris and visit Dyptique on St. Germain or Givenchy on Champs elysees. It’s a dream!

  8. Lmao about the dirty face! That is totally something my husband would say. This box looks great after seeing the review but I just don’t need it for the price. Any news on if they are doing another Byrdie box? That one was too good to pass up.

    • Glad you could enjoy the husband humor 🙂

      No news yet on any new Byrdie boxes. I really hope they do another one soon, though!

  9. I loved this box! great review, Liz. I am so fair that I don’t have luck with self tanners, but I might try this one on a weekend some time.

  10. Lol. “do you have dirt on your face” isn’t the look we’d be going for with a face mask.

  11. Lol about the self tanner sleep mask… that is completely what would happen to me if I ever tried it!

    I stick with the tarte tanning towelettes (only problem I’ve ever run into with those was when I forgot to remove one of the clear little Peter Thomas Roth acne dots… ya, there was a noticeable small whiter circle in my face)
