This box comes with a folded card detailing the items included:
The illustrated products are accompanied by pricing, where to buy, Editor’s notes, and “Why It’s Rad.”
Now, on to the items!
This herbal tea bath smells so good! It’s a blend of Epsom Salt, Himalayan Sea Salt, Organic Pink Roses, Organic Lemongrass, and Organic Peppermint.
You just fill the included cloth tea bag with the mixture, tie it up, and add it to your bath. Or just leave it on the shower floor to get some of the aromas!
This is exactly the type of beauty product I expected in a box from Nylon, and while it’s a bit outside my makeup comfort zone, I appreciate that this box doesn’t feel like other beauty boxes.
You’ll need a glitter glue primer, or Vaseline, or something else to hold this glitter in place. I tried my best in this swatch with the regular primer I had:
Also, it glows under black light! Nylon recommends setting it into your hair with hairspray for edgy looking roots. (Glitter roots are a thing.)
Cocokind MYMATCHA Stick – $8.99
This is one of my favorite discoveries in the box! It’s an all-over moisture stick, and I love the suggestion to apply it under your eyes.
The light scent is pleasant, and the formula is 100% organic, too!
Hello Kitty Pin – $8
Based on the first box, I’m guessing this subscription will be a mix of beauty and a few accessory/fashion items each month. That won’t be for everyone, but I fall into the category of people who are always happy to see Hello Kitty in any box!
This little pin has silver metal detail and measures a little under an inch across.
This patch measures about an inch across and is peel and stick – no worries about sewing! (If you want it to be permanent, you’ll need to sew it, though.)
This is a “raspberry holographic glitter inspired by none other than NYLON Magazine’s signature pink.”
It looks raspberry pink in the bottle, but it reads as red to me when on my nails.
Here it is on with two coats:
To get full coverage, you’ll need multiple coats, or this would look great as a sparkle top coat.
Batiste Travel Size Dry Shampoo – $3.99
(Scents will vary)
This dry shampoo is a cult classic. It adds texture, scent, and absorbs excess oil. (Also, a tip from MSA readers if you aren’t a dry shampoo user – this works great as a shoe deodorizer, too!)
Confession – I am an adult who loves stickers! I already have a few of these plus the patch on my laptop! (And my charger!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $72. I think that’s good for a $20 box, but it’s worth mentioning that $32 of that value comes from non-beauty items. If you like the balance of beauty and accessories like I do, I recommend the box!
