This month’s box included an information page describing each item.
Hairphix Coconut & Avocado Oil, 2 oz. – Value $20
This hair treatment oil is organic and suitable for all hair types. It’s made from avocado and coconut oil to help restore hair’s natural oils and fats. It has a variety of benefits, such as preventing split ends, adding shine, and protecting hair from environmental damage. I’m in love the scent… it’s like a mix of coconut and pineapple. Very tropical smelling. There’s just one problem: coconut oil breaks me out, so this treatment oil will have to go to someone else. What a shame!
Rootdown Organics Organic Facial Sunscreen Cream, 2 oz. – Value $13.93
This is a sunscreen cream that can be worn alone or as a makeup base. It aims to even out skin tone and other skin perfections while providing sun protection. The sun protection comes in the form of chemical-free SPF (average 15-20). I’m always on the hunt for sunscreens and creams that block UV rays while providing comfortable finish on my skin. Sadly, this cream doesn’t make the cut. First, it evens out skin tone by covering up redness but at the cost of creating a white cast. It also doesn’t sink fully my skin, even when given plenty of time to absorb. This makes my face feel slightly greasy, plus the slipperiness makes it harder to set my makeup. I’ll have to pass this on to a friend with less finicky skin.
LuxePineapple Collection Zip Top Bikini Bag – Listed Value $18
I received this exact bikini bag in the June 2016 LuxePineapple Post, and my opinions on it remain the same. It is a very large zip top bag with sturdy PVC lining on the interior. While I adore the polka dot print, the green overlay text kinda clashes with the pink background. That said, I still love the bag. My first bag is used for storing skincare bottles with leaky caps. This new one will join me on beach vacations.
Island Massage Company Sunny’s Original Natural Sunburn Relief, 2 oz. – Value $8
This is an after-sun lotion made from aloe vera, olive oil, and essential oils. It can also be used as a daily moisturizer or leave-in hair conditioner. It applies very much like a facial oil. Once patted down the formula leaves a slight sheen. It’s only minimally greasy and disappears after several minutes, so it’s not a bother. I usually have a terrible sense of smell but I can easily tease out the lavender and peppermint essential oils. It’s great that this lotion is not only soothing to the skin but also to my nostrils!
Verdict: This month’s curation is cohesive and well thought out, but it’s not my cup of tea. The total retail value is around $60, which is more than twice the cost of the subscription. While I got my money’s worth, I only really like half the items (the bikini bag and after-sun lotion). However, this is an exception to the rule for me when it comes to LuxePineapple Post. I’m still excited to see what future months hold.
