Now, on to the items!
MoodMatcher Twist Stick Lip Color – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $10
This is a color changing lip crayon that turns berry pink once it hits your skin. The color is sheer, and it has surprising staying power! (Swatched in lower photo.)
STYL London Palette in Eaton Square – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $13.13
(FYI – this is the full-size version of the palette, but as far as palettes go, it’s on the small side.)
This palette is a mix of shimmers and mattes in warm browns. The pigment is good and the shades are pretty easy to blend, too.
Here is the palette swatched beneath the lip crayon:
Freeman PSSSST! Original Dry Shampoo – 1.76 oz Retail Value $2.99
This dry shampoo smells fresh, absorbs oil, and sprays on clear. Checks all the boxes!
Lapcos Charcoal Pore Care Mask – Value Listed $3.50
This mask is designed to help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. It’s probably my favorite item in the box – I loved how soothing it felt on my skin. The subtle scent was lovely, too.
Context Micro-Derm Regenerator – 1 oz Value $8.75
This is a gel cleanser/ exfoliant hybrid that is gentle enough to use daily. At first glance, I thought it had microbeads 🙁 but looking at the ingredient list, I think we’re safe! And the formula didn’t strip my skin of any moisture.
Wild Garden Pretty & Wild Body Lotion – FULL SIZE! Value Listed $8.95
This lotion is very lightweight and very fragrant. It’s a little too perfumey for me, but the formula is moisturizing and left my skin feeling very smooth.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47.32. That’s a decent value for the $21 cost, but not as exciting as some of the other boxes in this price point like Boxycharm. This box had a good amount of products that worked for me, though.
