Now, on to the items!
RITUALS The Ritual Of Hammam Refreshing Foaming Shower Gel – 50 ml Value $3.75
I really like the Rituals Foaming Shower Gels, so I was happy to see this in the box. If you aren’t familiar with this product, it’s a gel that turns into a lathery foam once it makes contact with water.
This scent is a Eucalyptus and Rosemary blend, with the focus on the Eucalyptus!
Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover – 50 ml Retail Value $15
This is an excellent makeup remover – I’m thrilled they sent the mini size! It removes even waterproof eyemakeup, and it’s gentle.
Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil – 10 ml Value $6.40
This body oil is designed to help firm skin and diminish the appearance of stretch marks. It gets a lot of rave reviews, and I have been on a decade-long quest to find a solution for stretch marks and cellulite, so of course, this was the first item I tried! I love the herbal minty scent and it felt lovely on my skin. Did I notice any difference in stretch marks or cellulite? Sadly, no, but I think it might be more intended for preventing stretch marks than diminishing the appearances of pre-existing stretch marks.
So in conclusion, the is a luxe body oil that smells and feels great, but your mileage may vary on toning and stretch marks.
Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum – 5 ml Value $16.20
This serum is designed to help diminish signs of aging, and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin. The sample size should last a few days (probably not enough for me to notice any skin differences), but I was so impressed with the feel of the formula. It absorbs almost instantly, and it left my skin feeling so smooth – a perfect base for makeup.
Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer – 3 ml Value $4.80
This primer is a classic I’ve sampled many times before. The formula feels super smooth on my skin and does a great job of temporarily filling in pores so that they look invisible.
Giorgio Armani Si Passione Eau de Parfum Spray – 1.2 ml Value $1.36
This perfume has notes of sparkling pear, rose, and woody vanilla. It’s sweet fragrance – not my favorite, but I’m not much of a perfume wearer.
Verdict: This box has an estimated value of about $47.51 (not counting the makeup bag.) I think that’s a good value for a $15 beauty box. This month had good sample sizes and some pricey products that I was thrilled to try.
