Now, on to the items!
ILIA Fade Into You Soft Focus Finishing Powder – 1.5 g Value $5.67
This is a great ingredient-conscious setting powder. It delivered both on the invisible blurring effect, and on properly setting my makeup. (My big test for setting powders is seeing if it prevents my undereye concealer from creasing, and this one worked!)
tarte Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H20 Serum – 10 ml Value $8.40
This is a great sized sample (10 ml), and another new-to-me product!
This serum is super light and designed to hydrate your skin and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It absorbed almost instantly, too.
Dr. Roebuck’s No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer – 15 ml Value $13.50
This is a new brand for me, and I’m impressed. It’s described as lightweight, but I’d say it’s a pretty rich cream – which is good for me, my skin drank it up!
FYI – be careful opening/dispensing this! I saw “lotion” and pictured your typical lotion formula, but this is actually more like a hydrating toner. Super gentle, too!
First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream – 9.6 g Value $6.80
I’m a big fan of First Aid Beauty, so I’m not surprised that I love this cream. It’s light, smells fab, and works for both AM and PM use!
Youth to the People Acai Prickly Pear Goji Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil – 3.7 ml Value 5.43
This is one of my favorite items in the box. It’s hydrating, gentle, and smells good, too! (You can also use this in place of a primer!)
Verdict: This box has a value of approximately $45.80 – and that’s not counting the bag! I think this is a great deal for $20 if you are interested in ingredient-conscious skincare. I’m pretty amazed that these are all new-t0-me products, and I liked every one of them, and found a few favorites I’ll buy in full size.
