December 2017 Nylon Box Review
This is sadly the last Nylon Box I will ever review since it was their last. I feel like a hardly knew them! I’m bummed because I thought they had a great thing going, but alas, I guess it was not meant to be. 🙁
They first included a coupon code good for 15% any device at Clarisonic.
BioRepublic Green Tea Detox Mask – Retail Value $4.99
I was actually really impressed with how well this clung to my face when I put it on. Some are really loose and slide around, but this one was snug. It’s made of a biodegradable fiber which apparently helps.
I left it on for 15 minutes while I laid in bed and read about crystals in a new book I got. Once I took it off, my face wasn’t swamped in essence like a lot of masks, and I simply rubbed the small amount into my skin. I’m not sure it erased any blemishes on my skin, but the next morning, my face felt soft and clean.
Nion Beauty Opus Renew Under Eye Masks – Buy a pack of 3 for $13.00
These under eye masks claim to help with dark circles which I certainly need. I received one pair which are pretty long and looks as though you can trim them to fit.
I took them out of the package and was surprised that they seemed like simple silicone, without any sort of moisture on them at all. No cream, oil, or serum was present. I put them on (untrimmed) for 15 minutes and have to admit that it felt kind of “weird”, which I think was just what it’s like to have silicone masks pressing up against your eyeball. When I took them off, I really didn’t see much of a difference, but since these are reusable (they suggest washing them with soap and water), I assume you’d have to keep the treatments going before seeing any visible results.
Milk + Sass Macaron for Hair Compact in Lavender – Retail Value $12.99
Yes! This product design is SO CUTE!
It looks like a big ol’ French Macaron in a pale violet color and has a really soft feel to the hard plastic.
Open it up to reveal a mirror on one side and a detangling brush on the other. I have the thinnest hair ever on earth, so I personally don’t have a use for a detangling brush. I passed this on to Sarah who has crazy thick hair.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Perfume, sample size rollerball – Buy a larger .34 oz for $28.00
Ahhhhh! I love MK and Ashley Olsen as a whole and just adore their perfumes as well. I already own a slightly larger rollerball version of this (which I got as a set with the “white” version when it first came out), but it’s nice to get an even smaller one for travel (or to pass to a friend).
Nirvana Black has a more woodsy scent than its Nirvana White counterpart and has “keynotes of violet, sandalwood, vanilla”. I just adore it, especially in cold weather as a warmer, cozier scent.
Meg Twin Nail Polish Set in Icy Cloud – Retail Value $10.00
What a perfect set for December! I quickly fell in love with Icy Cloud, especially the grey/blue color on the left.
The exterior cap is what keeps these two together, but they have their own small clear caps with brushes attached, of course.
Here they are with their brushes to get a better look at the colors.
Please overlook my grown out acrylics (don’t worry, I got a fill soon after this photo was taken) to gaze upon the duo on. The blue went on really nicely and I only really needed one coat to cover. I waited a few minutes before adding the glitter on top. Impressed with the density of the glitter polish itself.
Henne Organics Luxury Lip Tint in Intrigue – Retail Value $21.00
Looking at the packaging, I am already impressed with this lip tint. Henne is a female-founded “eco-luxury” brand that is all organic and made in the USA.
When I opened the tube, I was presented with what looked like a dark maroon lipstick with a flat tip as opposed to the usual angled version of most other brands.
Intrigue is the darkest color of the four they currently offer.
Once applied, this tint was just that- a tint! Its pleasantly subtle and has a really moisturizing formula that feels great on. This is actually perfect for me since I don’t always want a bold pigmented lip for everyday use. This feels so light on that I kept forgetting I was wearing it.
Peacocks and Petals Nevermind Sunglasses in Olive – Retail Value $20.00
I see what they did here. Peacocks and Petals remade the iconic Christian Roth sunglasses that Kurt Cobain wore for the famous photos by photographer Jesse Frohman back in 1993 and logically named the style “Nevermind”.
The pair I received came in olive instead of the white, but still immediately gave me the same vibes.
The company and style name is on the inside of the arm.
Feeling very Kurt in these… whatever, nevermind.
Verdict: I am really sad that Nylon Box is gone. I really liked a lot of the things they sent and I thought it was a really great value for a box $20.00. Even though I’m probably a bit older than the target Nylon reader, I thought the curation was tops and it always had really fun stuff, including a lot of full-size items. This month I was especially into the lip tint, perfume, and nail polish set. Ah well. Hopefully, another great box like this will come along as well.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, their whole shop is closed for good. 😭
Value Breakdown: At $19.99 for this box, I received seven items which break down to only $2.86 each!
