Now, on to the items!
Bean Body Coconut Coffee Bean Scrub – 50 g Value $4.45
This natural coffee scrub is a loose scrub (think coffee grounds). So it’s a bit messy, but it really made my skin exceptionally soft and smooth! (The coffee and coconut scent is amazing, too!)
Lancer The Method: Polish – .5 oz Value $8.90
Lancer is a very pricey, high-end skincare brand, so this is a fab sample to get in a box! The formula is a super fine scrub, so it’s a gentle exfoliator, and you can use it every day. It left my skin super clean, smooth, and not dried out at all!
Ciate Wonderwand Mascara – Size? Estimated Value $10?
I couldn’t find size marking on this mascara, but it’s your typical sample mascara size. (I actually prefer my mascaras in this size – less time for the formula to dry out!)
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this mascara! Volume? Check! Length? Check! Lash Separation? Check!
My favorite mascara is Tarte Lights Camera Lashes, and this is pretty dang close!
ModelCo Instant Radiance Illuminating Under Eye Concealer – FULL SIZE! Value $14
This item will probably work for a lot of people, but it’s a miss for me. First, I really hate these clicky-brush type of applicators. Second, I have serious dark circles, and this formula isn’t heavy enough for me (it’s also a bit too light for my undereye area). But, I did like the formula as a regular concealer – it was easy to blend and matched my skin tone well.
Here it is swatched:
Mono Skin Firming Fiji Facial Oil – 1 oz Value $12.30
This face oil took a few minutes to fully absorb into my skin, but it felt great once fully-absorbed. And I only needed a drop for my full face, so this sample should last me weeks!
Skimono Hand Mask Intense Nourishment – Value $14
I always love getting hand masks in subscription boxes – they force me to put down my phone for a few minutes! This set has a lovely, light scent, and the formula left my hands incredibly soft. (You’ll need to leave these on for 20-30 minutes, so plan accordingly!)
And this box includes the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine:
I love getting this mini mag with the box – it’s a fun extra, and the size is great for throwing in your purse, too.
The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $63.65 (not counting the magazine). I think that’s great for a $19 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $16 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.)
In general, the sizes of samples were great, and I discovered a new favorite mascara!
