Acai Berry Nourishing & Regenerating Face & Neck Cream -1.7 ounces

Acai Berry Nourishing & Regenerating Face & Neck Cream, 1.7 oz. – Retail Value $12.99

This face and neck cream intends to moisturize and fortify my skin while improving my skin’s elasticity. It also intends to help with tech neck, which happens when wrinkles appear as a result of the endless tilt of the head while using cell phones or other mobile devices. I used for a couple of days, and the cream was somewhat thick and left my skin moisturized.

From Ziaja:

Acai berry cream is a moisturizing emulsion composed of a complex of natural active substances. The most important are berries acai-rich source of polyphenols, anthocyanins, resveratrol, vitamins, tannins, which neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from oxidative damage. For the purposes of skin care, anti-oxidative processes ensure prevention of skin wrinkles, firming, strengthening the skin, alleviating irritation, radiant and healthy appearance.

Acai Berry Express Face & Neck Serum, 1.7 oz. – Retail Value $12.99

I appreciate when products that are meant to work together are in beauty boxes. I used the serum on my face and neck first then the face and neck cream in the morning. The serum was lightweight and it to intends to help with tech neck, which happens when wrinkles appear as a result of the endless tilt of the head while using cell phones or other mobile devices. Both the face and neck cream and serum are good for the morning and or night.

From Ziaja:

Acai berry concentrated antioxidant rescue serum. Smooths, intensely moisturize, and strengthen the skin. Soothes skin redness and evens out skin tone. Instantly absorbs and provides a healthy and radiant look.

Nail Polish

Bellápierre Nail Polish – Listed Value $15.00

This navy blue polish seems more for fall than summer, but I will rock it this summer, nonetheless. I didn’t find the polish on their website and I’m not sure if it is exclusive to this box.

Here is a swatch of the nail polish in the color navy blue.

Lip Gloss

Starlooks Lip Gloss – Retail Value $9.00

I love lip glosses and own a few that I love. This gloss was non-sticky, and the shine/gloss lasted for most of the day. The small size is perfect to throw in my makeup bag or clutch for on the go touch-ups. Subscribers received this lip gloss or liquid eyeliner in their July box.

Here is a swatch of the lip gloss.

  1. This nail polish is pretty good. I am just getting to use the moisturizer now that I am out of my other s and I think I am liking it so far

  2. This is my favorite box. It does a excellent job of combining hair, skin and makeup. I been with them for 6 months and have never received a item I could not use.

  3. I really like that color of the nail polish. It looks like something I’d wear in the Winter. … I’m so addicted to blue nail polishes in the Winter. 🙂
