Now, on to the items!
Foreo Luna Play – Value $39
(Colors will vary)
If you aren’t familiar with the Foreo Luna Play, it’s a pulsating device that allows you to get a much deeper clean when cleansing your face. (Similar to a Clarisonic.)
This device is 100 uses and not rechargeable, so a few MSA readers recommended using it as a tool to clean makeup brushes once the battery runs out. Foreo also gives tips for recycling your Play device. (This also came with a coupon code to save $39 off the full-size rechargeable Luna Foreo Device).
It has one speed only, and an on/off button on the back:
I’d been a Clarisonic user for years, but last year I switched to Foreo thanks to the first time I sampled this device!
Both Clarisonic and Foreo do a great job at cleaning my skin thoroughly. (While using the Foreo Play, I did wish that there were different intensity settings like there are on Clarisonic, but these options exist on the full-sized versions.)
The big difference for me is the silicone brush surface area. It’s nonporous and will resist any bacteria build up. With Clarisonic, you have to always buy replacement brush heads. (At $22 a new brush head, switched out every 2-3 months, the costs add up!)
And while I have the full-size version already, this is perfect for travel.
Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Cleanser – FULL SIZE! Value $22
A perfect item to go with the Luna Play!
I’m always happy to get anything full-sized from Juice Beauty in a subscription box! This cleaner is a lathering gel, and it did a great job of cleansing my skin without drying it out. (It has a natural scent that I like, but it may not be a hit with everyone.)
DermaBlend Pro Setting Powder – 5 g Value $4.80
This is everything you’d want in a setting powder: super lightweight, invisible, helps mattify skin, and gives a bit of a blurring effect. I’ll use every last gram!
DCL Skin Renewal Complex – 5ml Value $21.65
This is a moisturizer/sunscreen hybrid that provides SPF 30. The formula goes on white, but blends in easily. The finish is a little greasy/tacky at first, but that disappears after about a minute. It doesn’t have the classic SPF scent, and I’m having trouble placing the scent. At first, I thought it smelled like white out! Then I thought it smelled like Method Bathroom cleaner! (Let me know what you think it smells like, and if you think I’m losing it from smelling beauty products all day long! 😉 )
DCL Hydra Boost Finishing Serum – 5ml Value $18.30
This formula is a lightweight gel that absorbed almost instantly. It’s made with three forms of Hyaluronic Acid, and it was very gentle on my skin. (It also left my skin feeling soft and hydrated – I’m a fan!)
MDSolarSciences Mineral Tinted Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen – .25 oz Value $4.70
This tinted creme rubs in to almost clear (not the sunscreen for you if you are looking for medium-to-full coverage), but the finish is fantastic. It’s a super smooth matte – almost like a primer.
KERANIQUE Daily Essentials Dietary Supplement – 7 packets Value $11.40
These nutrient packets are designed to help hair grow fuller, thicker, and longer.
There are 7 individual packets inside, and each packet includes:
One Beta-Carotene Boost capsule, and one B-Complete Daily Essentials capsule. (Both are free from all common allergens.) These have a typical vitamin smell (nothing too off-putting) and didn’t irritate my stomach. But I can’t comment on any hair boost with only a 7-day sample. (Reviews on ULTA are promising, though.)
We’re having a beauty supplement month!
This is a powder you mix with 8 ounces of water. It’s designed to fight wrinkles AND give you instant energy. (You can’t see me right now but picture a skeptical look on my face.)
The ingredients aren’t listed on the packet, but I found them online here, and nothing seemed bad, so I made myself a drink!
The powder is purple thanks to all the berry extracts, and the flavor isn’t too bad. Nothing I’d crave, but I didn’t have a problem drinking it. (It reminded me just a bit of Flinstones chewable vitamins of my childhood.) I can’t say I noticed a big difference in energy. But obviously, I noticed zero difference in my skin. (From the reviews I read, it should take about 4 weeks taking this daily to see results in your skin.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $124. That’s a great value for a $24.95 box. This box is clearly a win if you love Foreo and Juice Beauty, so I’m in luck, there. I have no problem getting beauty supplements in beauty boxes (I’m all about collagen powder now thanks to subscription boxes), but two in one box is probably overdoing it.
