Now, on to the items!
INCredible Cosmetics Glazin Over Lip Gloss in Everyday Selfie – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $10
(Subscribers will receive 1 of 5 shades.)
This is a bright coral that provides sheer color and lots of shine. The formula isn’t too sticky, and the color wears down nicely.

Blink Brow Bar Mini Brow Build Indian Chocolate – 2 ml Value $12.44
I saw this brand show up on Net-A-Porter’s new beauty releases section, and I wanted to try it, so this was a perfect box addition!
Word of caution – this brow gel provides a lot of pigment! I decided to use it after I had penciled in my brows to set them, but it was too much of a look. So it works almost too well! I recommend using this solo and using light strokes.
Here it is swatched beneath the lipgloss:
MIO Mio Boob Tube + Multi-Action Bust Firmer – 30 ml Value $14.40
I really like the Mio brand! Their products are ingredient-conscious, and I always like the scents, too. This formula is designed to strengthen and tone skin “from below your boobs to the top of your neck.”
Molton Brown Shower Gel in Gingerlily -100 ml Value $10.67
(Subscribers will receive 1 of 3 scents.)
This is a pricey and cult-classic body wash, so I was happy to get a good-sized sample in the box! The Gingerlily scent is lovely, and it creates a great lather, too.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash – 40 ml Value $7.36
This is one of those products that have a natural/herbal scent that I love, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be in the minority when it comes to loving the fragrance! The formula itself is ingredient-conscious, and so gentle, too. It doesn’t create much of a lather, but still did a great job of cleaning my skin and removing most makeup.
Erno Laszlo Firmarine Essence Lotion – 15 ml Value $5.10
You use this like a toner, but the formula isn’t your typical liquid toner. It’s a bit of a gel/liquid hybrid. It absorbs almost immediately, is gentle, and hydrating.
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 $59.97 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.) Good brands and sample sizes this month, too!
