Now, on to the items!
Ilia Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek – FULL SIZE! Value $34
This stick is a sheer, coral red blush. The pigment is great, so you only need a little for each application. (It’s easy to blend, too.)
One thing I noticed on the Ilia site is that they claim this product is made with “100% natural dye.” However, the ingredients include Yellow 5 – a synthetic dye.
In general, the ingredient list looks good to me and includes lots of organic items, but this messaging on their site doesn’t seem to add up. (If a beauty product lists 100% natural dye as a selling point, I’m expecting to see it colored with mica, fruit dye, etc.)
Here it is swatched:
Mabrook & Co. Clean Deodorant – FULL SIZE! Value $16
Here’s something I don’t often say: This deodorant smells SO GOOD!
And it’s a natural deodorant that comes in stick form! The vanilla + mint combination is a sweet peppermint – so lovely! And it goes on dry! (I like the scent so much I’m thinking of buying their candles, too!)
This is made with organic oils, including Lavender, Mandarin Orange Peel, and Cedarwood. So, no surprise, it smells heavenly! And if you are used to solo-lavender scents for these type of products, this blend is a nice change of pace.
Luna Nectar Moonstone Tonic – FULL SIZE! Value $75
This lash serum is made with all organic and natural ingredients.
I’ve decided it’s time to up my brows, so I’m using this on brows only. It’s been gentle on my skin, and while I haven’t noticed any differences yet, it’s probably still too early to tell.
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer – FULL SIZE! Value $45
This sunscreen is one of the best I’ve ever sampled! It’s free of just about any ingredient you may want to avoid, and it has a light, citrus scent! The formula goes on white, but absorbs quickly, and it doubles as a makeup primer.
Wildcraft Balance Toner – FULL SIZE! Value $16
This is a fine mist spray that can be used between cleansing and moisturizing, or just as a pick-me-up throughout the day. I wish the Orange Blossom scent more prominent than the Geranium, but either way, it’s a fab toner.
Abbey Lane Farm Body Oil – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This scent is orange + vanilla! I love the scent of vanilla, but sometimes it can smell too sweet/artificial in beauty products, so this blend is perfect for me.
The oil is lightweight and absorbs quickly, too!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $238. This box cost me about $112 USD, so I’m very happy with that value. And I love that everything in the box this month is full size!
Plus, the curation here is excellent. There are a few natural brands I know and love, plus some excellent new discoveries, too.
