Now, on to the items!
Elemis Superfood Cleansing Wash – 30ml Value $5
Elemis is a quality, pricey skincare brand, so I’m always happy to see any product from them in a box! This cleanser was gentle, didn’t strip my skin of moisture, and I loved the green/herbal scent. (I thought I detected basil, but I don’t see it in the ingredient list.)
Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion – 50 ml Value $7.50
This sunless tanner gave me a natural looking tan but it was SUBTLE and VERY GRADUAL. Personally, with self-tanners, they wear off in a matter of days, so I want to start off pretty tan. This isn’t a great fit for me, but if you are looking for a more of a subtle-glow self-tanner, I recommend it.
Also bonus points for the formula being ingredient-conscious!
Studio 10 Liquid Foil i-Radiance Metallic Shadow – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20?
I’m not sure if this is a soon-to-be-released product, but I can’t find it online anywhere besides sites like eBay. So, I’m estimating on value based on other Studio 10 products. It’s also frustrating that I can’t find this online because the eyeshadow didn’t come in a box, and there is no ingredient info on the tube.
Those issues aside, I was generally impressed with the formula. It makes applying glitter eyeshadow very easy with minimal fallout. (Make sure to use a primer, though!) It was easy to blend, too.
Here it is swatched:
MÁDARA SOS Hydra Moisture+Radiance Mask – 12.5 ml Value $10.10
Another ingredient-conscious skincare item! This is a hydrating mask (think thick moisturizer), that you apply on your skin and remove after 15-20 minutes. I was really pleased with the results – I feel like it was the equivalent of an overnight moisturizing mask in only 20 minutes!
Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with Pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts – 30 ml Value $10.13
This is a “Cleansing Volumizing Paste,” AKA shampoo!
It’s designed for fine hair, but I used it on medium hair and still got amazing (almost too amazing) results. You massage it into your scalp like you would with regular shampoo, rinse, then conditioner, etc. (I used about half this container on shoulder length hair, and I’m thinking I could have used half of that.)
After blow drying my hair, I could definitely see a difference in volume, then I went to sleep. (This is typically the time when I lose all hair volume and I wake up to flat hair.) Not the case with this shampoo! I actually woke up to MORE volume! Or as my husband puts it, “Your hair looks….wider.”
Real Chemistry Environmental Rescue Essential Day Cream – 10 ml Value $6.80
A resealable foil packet?! Yes!! (So perfect for travel, and easy to make sure you get every last drop of the formula out of the sample!)
This formula has a light, subtle scent. (I couldn’t detect it after a few minutes.) It’s a hydrating rich cream, but it absorbs quickly without any greasy finish. I’m a fan!
The Ritual of Dao Body Cream by Rituals – 70 ml Value $10
This body lotion is paraben-free and has a white lotus scent. Personally, the scent was a little too strong for me to use as a whole body lotion, but again, this is another lotion that doesn’t give your skin a greasy finish – I appreciate that!
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 $69.53 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!
