The Products: Happy birthday to YOU! Kick off the fresh year ahead with good vibes and this exciting package of fun, indulgent treats. From whimsical (and yummy!) gummy bears to a rose-scented hair and body oil—think of it as a mini birthday bash in a box. There’s even a candle to make a wish.
Each box comes with a sheet of paper detailing all the items included:
Now, on to the items!
STARSKIN 100% Camellia Oil Nourishing & Brightening 2-Step Oil Sheet Mask – Retail Value $10
This is a two-step mask. First, you apply the oil to your face (there is way more oil than I needed for a single use), then apply the sheet mask. After removing the mask, my skin was super hydrating and also still pretty oily. (I ended up removing most of the oil when it didn’t absorb.)
Winky Lux Powder Lights in Birthday Party – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $18
This lavender/pink highlighter is gorgeous! It has a subtle holographic shimmer, and it’s easy to blend, too.

OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil – 45 ml Value $16
(This is half the size of the full-size version.)
I’m used to heavily fragranced Ouai haircare products, so this lightly scented Rose Hair & Body Oil was a change!
The scent is more floral than rosy (which I liked), and it is silicone free, too. I tried it as both a hair oil and a body oil, and I liked it as both. It’s lightweight and absorbs into the skin easily.
Avène Gentle Toning Lotion – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20
This toner is soothing, gentle, and alcohol-free! And I’m a big fan of Avene skincare products in general, so no surprise that I love this, too.
tarte tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in tbt – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20
The formula is really lightweight, dries quickly, and it is mostly smudge proof immediately. It has a matte finish, and the pigment is fab, too. Also, this color is my go-to lip color! I’m thrilled!
Here it is swatched beneath the Winky Lux:
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super-Curling & Lifting Mascara – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $24
I’ve already sampled this mascara from Benefit and I’m a fan. I’m able to build a lot of volume and length without any clumping on the lashes. It’s my go-to backup mascara if I’m out of Tarte!
TOCCA Voyage Candelina in Montauk – Travel-size (1.2 oz) Value $8
This candle is officially my favorite Tocca scent! It’s described as a blend of salt air and cucumber, and it smells fresh and summery. (I also love that the scent is light – this isn’t a candle fragrance that will overpower a room.)
Dylan’s Candy Bar Happy Birthday Bears Mini Paint Can – Estimated Value $10?
These gummies come in a fun “paint can” that you open with the attached washer.
Sadly, these are colored with artificial dye, and I’m allergic to Red 40, so I can’t enjoy them (and I LOVE gummies), but I’ll share them in the office!
Spornette DeVille Cushion Oval Boar Bristle Brush – Value $19.99
These bristles “detangle and evenly distribute hair’s natural oils to boost smoothness and shine.”
It’s a quality brush, with a good weight to it. I usually only use Wet Brushes, so this was a nice change of pace!
S’well 17 oz. Bottle in Birds of Paradise – Retail Value $35
A subscription box can’t go wrong putting a S’well bottle in a box, right?
I love the sleek design, and it keeps liquids cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12 hours. And you can’t lose the bottle when it is this bright, right?
Verdict: This box has a value of about $181! I think that’s amazing for the $52 cost! Lots of full size products, and quality brands, too!
Can you still get this box today? Yep. This one-time purchase box is still available!
