Beauty Report Box Spring 2018 Review
Here is the info sheet for the products included.
Biopelle Tensage Intensive Serum 40, 2 ampoules – Estimated Value $25 (buy 10 ampoules for $125)
This serum is designed to reduce and prevent visible signs of aging thanks to some handy dandy snail secretions. These are supposedly great for “optimizing results for post-procedure care.” I haven’t been having any procedures done on my face, but when I used this ampoule it was thin and took a minute before it sank into my skin. One ampoule was more than enough for my face and neck, so I actually used some on my cuticles as well. Everything was hydrated and soft when I woke up the next morning, and I am going to save my other ampoule for using after my next facial.
Epicuren Discovery Kukui Coconut After Bath Moisturizer, 2 oz – Estimated Value $8.56 (buy a full-size bottle for $68.50)
This was a really light and thin body lotion that absorbed into my skin quickly and left a light (and lovely) coconut scent. I’m not too sure what makes the full-size version of this cost $68.50, but it gets the job done and I will use this up.
Grande Cosmetics GrandeLIPS HydraPLUMP Liquid Lipstick in French Lilac, .084 oz – Retail Value $25
I had tried the plumping lipgloss from this brand, so I was interested to see how the liquid lipstick stacked up. Using it left the typical burning sensation on my lips, and I took it off after about five minutes because I wasn’t in the mood to deal with the tingles. There may have been a slight plumping effect, but I don’t know if it’s worth it for how uncomfortable this was to wear. Also, this shade is a really horrible color on me. Like, I know you guys love seeing shades modeled, but this color is not one I want to wear when posting a selfie on the internet. Swatched below!
HASK Cactus Water 5-in-1 Leave-in Spray, 6 oz – Retail Value $7.99
This leave-in conditioning spray is supposed to hydrate, detangle, add shine, and help fight humidity. My curls can always use some of that, so I sprayed in a generous amount after washing my hair and before combing through with a wide tooth comb. I like to use products like these as a preventative measure for my hair compared to as a solution to hair problems because it is much easier to keep my curls tangle-free than it is to comb out the tangles (and occasional dread) that form when I don’t use products like these. It’s not the best detangling product I have ever used, but it is solid and I’ll use it the entire bottle.
Hint Sunscreen in Pear, 6 oz – Retail Value $19.99
I love Hint water, so I was excited to try this sunscreen! The light pear scent was much more enjoyable than the traditional sunscreen scent, and the nozzle applied an even mist to my skin.
IMAGE Skincare I MASK Biomolecular Anti-Aging Radiance Mask – Estimated Value $8 (buy a 5-pack for $40)
My skin can always use more radiance, and this sheet mask is a hydrogel (which is my favorite!) designed to hydrate and brighten. With all of the skincare products I review, hydration isn’t a problem I usually have, however, I love products like these to give a boost of glow to my skin while also being relaxing. This checks all the boxes for that, but I won’t be purchasing a 5 count box for $40.
It’s a 10 Haircare Miracle Defrizzing Curl Cream, 4 oz – Retail Value $23.95
I enjoy the It’s a 10 haircare line, and I was excited to see this product specifically for curly hair! With the Louisiana humidity, my curls definitely fight the frizz on a regular basis. I have only used it once so far, but my curls were defined and frizz-free. Score!
Jan Marini Skin Research C-ESTA Serum, .1 oz – Estimated Value $10.80 (buy a full-size bottle for $108)
This serum was just all right. Immediately when I applied this to my face I noticed a strong scent. I was hoping it was a therapeutic essential oil, but when I scanned the ingredients list “fragrance” was near the top. Considering how pricey this serum is, I’m not a fan of the fragrance being added to the product.
KOCOSTAR Long Hair Therapy, 1 hair pack – Retail Value $10
I love that this mask is designed specifically for long hair! You wouldn’t know it by looking at me, but when wet (or straight) my hair reaches to the small of my back. The argan oil, olive oil, and shea butter added some extra hydration to my curls (which are always asking for extra moisture), and while I am not a fan of masks I have to take two showers for (the first to shampoo and get your hair wet, the second to wash out the mask after waiting 15-20 minutes), this was a nice treat.
ProLon The Fasting Mimicking Diet, One Day Supply – Estimated Value $60?
This one day supply of food is a part of a diet that allegedly keeps your diet in fasting mode while getting to eat the food provided. I have no interest in fasting for a day, even if there are a few snacks to accompany it, but the choco crisp bar I tried ( I got hungry when going through all the products in this box) wasn’t awful. It definitely had that healthy protein bar trying to be a candy bar flavor, but I have had worse. A 5 day supply of this diet costs $299, so this one day supply would have an estimated value of $60. That blows my mind.
CO2Lift by Lumisque, 1 treatment – Retail Value $85
Right off the bat, I was prejudiced by this face mask. An $85 face mask? I can get 60-minute facials for cheaper than that. So naturally, I had to try this the same night I got the box. This box came with two packets to make the mask, a spatula, a headband, and two “beauty tablets.” The beauty tablets added some fizzes to a bath, but the mask is the star of the show.
Here is my before picture. I am wearing the handy-dandy headband they included in the kit, and getting ready to mix the pouches with the included spatula.
Here is the mask about 50 minutes later, when most of it was dry. It actually peeled off my face pretty easy and didn’t rip my eyebrow hairs out.
Here is the immediate after photo. In person, I could tell my skin was a touch brighter, and my face felt so soft and nourished. However, I figured the real results would be the most noticeable the next day.
Here I am the next day wearing only mascara and lip balm. Personally, I felt like the redness you still see is my natural flush, but the underlying redness was lessened noticeably. Any pimples I had were smaller, and overall my skin looked brighter. I would never pay $85 for this mask, but also I want to get my hands on more of these because I definitely saw results. Also, check out my hair! My hair wasn’t fully dry (because it takes about 6 hours for that to happen), but I had used the Hask spray, It’s a 10 curl cream, and Sexy Hair mousse. Personally, I thought my curls looked luscious.
NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash, 3.4 oz – Retail Value $23.78
This cleanser is formulated with glycolic acid, and with repeated use is designed to smooth out texture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. I need a cleanser that helps me combat my oily, acne-prone skin, but when I tried this cleanser it was very gentle and the foam was a fun texture. I’ll be passing this along to a friend with different skincare concerns that would benefit more from this product.
Osmosis Colour Lipstick in Vintage, .14 oz – Retail Value $25
This lipstick is creamy and designed to be long lasting, though I would say its longevity is that of a typical cream-based lipstick and not of a powerhouse liquid lipstick. This orange tinged brick red does have some shimmer to it, which is nice, but overall this isn’t a good color for me.
Here it is swatched above the grande lips lipstick.
Neocell Beauty Infusion, 6 packets – Estimated Value $6 (buy a full-size container for $29.99)
This biotin and collagen powder is designed to strengthen hair, skin, and nails while also hydrating the skin. I didn’t hate the flavor of this, but it wasn’t my favorite. I would probably rather just take a biotin pill than drink this, but I think it is a good inclusion to the overall box.
Purlisse Beauty Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub, .7 oz – Estimated Value $4.20 (buy a full-size tube for $36)
This coconut oil and coffee sugar scrub was easy to use, and the scrub was fine so it wasn’t too gritty. It left my skin moisturized and not raw after using. Using this scrub and then following with the coconut lotion was a real treat for my skin!
ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets, 12 count – Retail Value $25.43
I do not currently have any scars to try these out on, and according to the instructions, it’ll take a few months of consistent use to get any long-term noticeable effects. I am happy to have a 12 week supply of these, so in the future, if I do have a burn or scar that needs some help I have the full amount needed to see results.
Normally I’m not a fan of foil packets, but considering the amount of full sized products in this box I think I can let it slide. This is a hydrating hair oil that is designed to smooth and control frizz while being nourishing. I would say all of those things were accomplished when trying this out, so that’s nice.
Sexy Hair Fresh Hair Air Dry Styling Mousse, 1.7 oz – Estimated Value $5.98 (buy a full-size bottle for $17.95)
I was intrigued by this because I exclusively air dry my hair. The pump for this doesn’t dispense a lot of product at a time, and it was easy to disperse through my curls without leaving them crunchy.
SiO Beauty Silicone Eye & Smile Lift Patches, 1 pair – Retail Value 14.95
I was excited about these because I love a good eye gel, however, these were a bit of a let-down. These eye patches are designed to be used up to 15 times, and they recommend using them overnight. They fell off my face the first night I tried them, and they became unusable thanks to me rolling on top of them as I slept. I didn’t really see a difference after a half night of using them.
The Verdict: Wow! You will be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t think this is an awesome box for $30.
I think the box is technically missing an item because on the website you can see that this box was supposed to feature “19 products from our favorite brands.” However, there are so many full sized products in this box, and a lot of the sample sizes were generous as well. This is truly a box that treats yourself— I would never pay $85 for the face mask, but I had so much fun trying it out. This box has a little bit of everything beauty related, and I am already looking forward to the summer edition.
