Now on to the items!
Beautaniq Beauty Glow Serum – 6 ml Value $6.90
This is a super pigmented/shimmery liquid highlighter with apricot fruit extract plus aloe vera, so it’s nourishing to your skin, too. Here it is swatched:
The rose gold/champagne color is gorgeous, and it’s pretty easy to blend before it sets. (But once it sets, it stays put!) And a little goes a long way, so this sample should last me for a while!
R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion – 15 ml Value $2.50
This styling cream reminds me of the signature Ouai scent! It’s lightweight, works on damp or dry hair, and added softness without weighing down my hair.
Davines SU Hair & Body Wash – 2.5 oz Value $7.20
I’ve sampled this before, and it’s as luxe as it looks. The scent is fresh and slightly powdery, and I love a multi-use product for summer travel!
Red Earth Deep Dive Water Cream – .25 oz Value $3.47
This gel/cream hybrid is giving me Laneige vibes in the best way!
The formula is so light and soothing. It absorbed almost instantly, felt great on my skin – it’s an ideal summer moisturizer for me.
Beauty Blender Sample – Value?
I’m not sure if I’d assign any value to this. It’s maybe a good disposable solution for traveling if you don’t want to worry about cleaning your full-size beauty blender, but it’s not as easy to use as a true beauty blender.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $20 – I think that’s good for a $10 beauty box. In general, the curated boxes from Birchbox tend to have a good value, so if that’s important to you, I recommend picking those each month! I liked everything in this box, and the Red Earth product is my favorite new discovery – the price for the full-size is really reasonable, too!
