Now, on to the items!
Tarte tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in rose – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20
I’m always happy to see tarte in subscription boxes, (especially full-sized tarte), and this color is a perfect nude for my skin tone. The formula dries to a matte finish, feels lightweight, and isn’t too drying, either.
Here it is swatched:
Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar – 17g Value $6.70
This dead sea mud soap bar is designed to help detoxify and exfoliate skin. It’s probably the finest particle exfoliant I’ve ever sampled – not irritating at all! And it didn’t dry out my skin!
Klorane Smoothing & Relaxing Patches – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $24
I’ve sampled a lot of eye gels over the years, and this style of eye gel is my favorite. They’re cooling, soothing, and gentle on my skin. Plus, they stay put, and you don’t have to touch the gel part. Just remove the backing and apply the gel part directly to your undereye area.
I also recommend using these when applying eye makeup. Any stray eyeshadow that falls will land on these and make for a very easy clean up!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $12
This lip balm isn’t sticky at all, it’s super moisturizing, has a subtle minty flavor, and provides a hint of shine. A+!
Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo – 75 ml (this is the smallest full-size version available) Value $20
This dry shampoo goes on clear, smells fab, and adds just a little texture, too.
Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste – 10 ml Value $1.80
Marvis toothpaste – thanks to subscription boxes, this fancy toothpaste is always in my bag when I travel! The minty flavor is great, too.
SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair – .07 oz Value $14.28
This eye cream is designed to do all the things: reduce the appearance of lines and dark circles, hydrate skin, and brighten skin tone. It’s a rich cream that felt great on my skin, and it absorbed quickly, too. The only downside? This is a small sample and it’s mostly air, so I’ll probably only get a few uses out of it.
beautyblender blotteratzi (1) Estimated Value $6.67
This blotting cushion from beautyblender comes with a packet of a liquid cleanser, too:
This is a flat slice of a beautyblender, designed to help blot oil without messing up your makeup. It works well, but I didn’t find it to be any different than blotting papers. (So it’s nice to have, but not a wow product like the original beautyblender.)
dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub – 0.75oz Value $3.17
This is a color safe, ingredient-conscious scalp scrub designed to help clean your scalp and remove any hair product build up. It felt great, and the apple cider vinegar scent was gone as soon as I rinsed it!
Hum Nutrition BeautyZZZs – 7 tablets Value $2.33
I need all the help I can get when it comes to sleep, so I was excited to try these (especially since they are a relatively low dose of melatonin compared to other supplements.) I *think* they helped me fall asleep, but I’ve also messed with my sleep schedule recently thanks to travel, so I’m going to give them a few more nights before I know for sure. (If you’ve found melatonin to be helpful for sleep, let me know!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $110.95! That’s an incredible value for a $24.95 box! I love the brands included in the box, and I’m impressed that there are so many full size and good size products, too.
