Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50 Medium – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $65!
This is a powder sunscreen that can be worn alone or over makeup. It comes with a built-in brush to dispense the powder, too:
(For the first time you use it, make sure to swirl the brush on your wrist to get the powder moving!) The powder goes on sheer (I couldn’t really notice any pigment once applied to my skin), so this isn’t a product for foundation coverage, but it’s great to add sunscreen post-makeup, and for touchups throughout the day. It didn’t mess up my makeup at all, and it was so easy to apply.
($65 seems like a lot of this, so we’ll see how long it lasts, but I definitely love this for keeping in your purse and making sure you are always covered!)
Nia 24 Sun Prevention 100 Percent Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $49
Full-size sunscreen is almost unheard of in subscription boxes (I’m thinking of all those tiny COOLA samples), so I was thrilled to see two full-size sunscreen items in this box! This face + neck sunscreen from NIA 24 is oil-free and designed to help improve the appearance of skin, and addition to providing SPF 30.
It goes on white, absorbs pretty quickly, and gives your skin a slight sheen.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – 24 ml Value $10
If you haven’t tried Bum Bum cream yet, it’s pretty amazing. First, the Pistachio + Salted Caramel fragrance is amazing! The formula absorbs quickly, is super moisturizing, and has the added benefit of making your skin look tighter – perfect for legs!
This is a baby version of the Bum Bum cream, which is super cute, and probably good for a few uses. Here it is in my hand to give you a better sense of scale:
Alterna CAVIAR Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter – .85 oz Value $5.78
Alterna and Living Proof are my two favorite haircare brands (they are both ingredient-conscious and their products smell amazing), so I was happy to see this blowout butter in the box! It’s designed to help fight frizz and make hair softer, smoother, and shinier. (Plus it has heat protection.) You can use a bit on damp hair before blowdrying, and it even worked for me on dry hair as a hair cream.
Dermalogica Bio-Luminc Serum – .1 oz Value $8.70
This serum is designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and firm skin.
This formula is SO lightweight and gentle! It absorbs almost instantly, too. The sample size should last at least a week, too, so I’m hoping to get a glimpse of some results!
ShaveWorks The Cool Fix – 1 oz Value $6
This gel/lotion remind me a bit of aloe-vera based post-sun products – it’s so cooling and soothing. You apply it to skin after shaving or waxing, and it helps prevent ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and razor burn. The scent probably falls more into the category of men’s grooming (this product is for men, too), and I am someone who usually likes men’s cologne more than women’s perfume, so this scent works for me! (And most importantly, the formula actually works!)
Juliette Has a Gun Moscow Mule Perfume 1.7 ml Value $3.40
This is a citrusy, floral, and woody fragrance with notes of ginger, lime, and jasmine. I’m pretty picky when it comes to perfume (I don’t like most scents) but this one is lovely!
Jane Iredale Flirt LipDrink Deluxe – .05 oz Value $6.07
This adorable little lip balm gives just a hint of color (you can apply this without a mirror) and lots of moisture and a little sheen. (And as someone who loses every single lip balm she owns before they are empty, a mini lip balm is basically the same value as the full size!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $153.95! That’s an incredible value for a $24.95 box! This feels like the perfect summer box for me. And I can’t believe we got two full-size sunscreens plus a Bum Bum cream!
