Now, on to the items!
Bellapierre Shimmer Roll Champagne – 2 g (FULL SIZE?) Estimated Value $8.33
This is a multiuse shimmer (eyes, face, body) in a warm, champagne gold. The shimmer/pigment is great with this formula, but it’s a loose powder in rollerball form:
If something is a rollerball, that usually means it is a liquid form, so this was a weird choice. I didn’t love the application because you then have to blend out a loose powder. It would be much better to apply a loose powder properly with a brush, to begin with.
So just a heads up that this formula goes on dry – you will need a good primer before applying.
Here it is swatched:
Trifle Cosmetics Sugar Pear Sublime Lip Scrub – FULL SIZE! Value $17.95
This sugar scrub smells exactly like what you’d hope a sugar pear scrub would smell like – sweet and decadent, but not artificial. The oils are very moisturizing, too.
(If you like this item, I recommend checking out our So Susan Color Curate reviews!)
Dr. PawPaw Original Multipurpose Clear Balm – 10 ml Value $5
I first discovered Dr. PawPaw through GlossyBox and I love this balm! First, it’s just fun to say the name! And even better, it’s an all-natural, fragrance-free, multi-use balm!
ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – 0.5 oz Value $40
(Good to know for swaps – this product has an inner foil seal.)
This is one of my favorite items in the box. It’s a luxe skincare brand, the sample is a good size (the full-size version is 50 ml), and I actually prefer the tube container of the sample over the jar container of the full-size version.
The formula is rich but not greasy, and super hydrating. If I could change anything, I’d remove the fragrance, but it doesn’t bother me and fades quickly.
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum – 10 ml Value $16.33
This is a lightweight, oil-free formula. The serum is designed to restore its moisture balance and is ideal for people with dry skin.
My skin is still sensitive and dry thanks to the Winter weather, so this was good timing for me. The serum absorbs almost immediately and was gentle on my skin, too.
Filorga Meso Mask – 15 ml Value $17.35
This mask is designed to enhance the skin by improving luminosity and radiance, treating wrinkles and erasing signs of fatigue. It’s a creamy mask you apply to your face, eye contour, neck, and décolletage. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then remove with a damp cloth.
I didn’t notice any major differences after using it, but my skin felt clear and soft.
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 $104.96 (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.) I really liked the skincare this month, and even with the Bellapierre roll-on being a miss for me, this box is still a hit!
