Now, on to the items!
Kerastase Reflection Bain Chromatique Sulfate Free Shampoo – 80 ml Value $9.60
Kerastase is a high-end haircare brand I’m always happy to sample through subscription boxes! This shampoo is designed to help protect color-treated hair from fading. My hair is highlighted, so this is helpful, and it smells good, too. (The sample size is good, too – just under 3 ounces.)
Filorga UV Bronze After Sun – 50 ml Value $8.63
This is a post-suntanning product designed to help soothe your skin after sun exposure. It’s a gel/cream hybrid, so it’s moisturizing, but it absorbs so quickly – very refreshing! I don’t tan in the sun (spray self-tanner only for me), and I’m not digging the powdery/floral fragrance with this product, so this is a miss for me.
SVR Laboratoires SEBIACLEAR Gel Moussant Cleanser – 10 ml Value $.75
This gel cleanser is free of soap, alcohol, and parabens. It was gentle on my skin, did a pretty good job of removing makeup, and didn’t dry out my skin either. It has added fragrance but I liked it – it reminded me of grass/fresh inspired perfumes.
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser – 1 oz Value $4
OK, I was a little surprised to see two cleansers in this box, but I guess subscription boxes are all about sampling and figuring out what is best for you, so it’s the battle of the cleansers in this box!
Personally, I prefer this one over the previous cleanser. The creamy formula feels great, it’s gentle, and no fragrance added!
LANCER Omega Hydrating Oil – 5 ml Value $12.50
This hydrating oil is designed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boost moisture, and leave skin with a dewy finish. While I can’t say I’ve noticed any fine line/wrinkle differences yet, the hydration and dewy finish promises are legit! This oil feels wonderful on my skin, too!
Doucce Highlighter Mono – Retail Value $14
If you aren’t familiar, Doucce makes individual pans that you can add to any magnetized Z-palette. (Including their own cases.)
Here are the magnets:
The formula is shimmery, pigmented, and easy to blend. I’d recommend this to anyone who finds highlighters intimidating because the powder formula is easy to start small and build.
Here it is swatched:
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 $49.48 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.) Plus, great sizes of products this month!
