Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included:
You’ll also receive a $5 off coupon, which is good for beauty purchases in-store and online.
But this month it’s a $10 coupon! Woo!
And just like Ipsy, with each box you’ll receive a new makeup bag:
This one is a larger drawstring bag with the text, “I don’t sweat I sparkle.”
It measures 13 by 14 inches, and is large enough to function as a shoe bag for travel, or a bag for wet/sweaty gym clothes, etc.
Now, on to the items!
Yuni Shower Sheet – Value $1.25
This ingredient-conscious shower wipe is great to store in your purse or gym bag for a post-workout refresh. The natural scent is refreshing, and the wipe is large (14 inches long.)
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment – 5 ml Value $17.50
This is a lactic acid treatment designed to exfoliate dead skin cells, plumps fine lines, and evens out hyperpigmentation. The tube is completely full, so I had enough to sample this for a week, too. I *think* I could notice a difference in the eveness of my skintone, and I’m tempted to buy it in full-size. (FYI – I don’t love the smell, but it doesn’t linger.)
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant – 1 oz Value $15.88
This is over half the size of the full-size version! I’m not much of a perfume wearer, so this might be the right amount of fragrance for me. The scent is a bit powdery but subtle, and the deodorant lasted all day.
Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap – Peppermint – 2 oz Value $.85
This is an ingredient-conscious soap that works for just about any soap need: face, body, hair, food, dishes, laundry, mopping, and pets. And the peppermint scent is so refreshing!
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry – 1.2 g Value $7.40
I was initially delighted by this sample size, but then I twisted it and saw it only goes up about a centimeter. Not terrible, but a little deceptive. The formula is lovely, though. It provides a wash of color, plus shine and moisture with no stickiness. Here it is swatched:
Jimmy Choo Fever Eau de Parfum Spray – 1.2 ml Value $1.91
This is a floral fragrance with notes of Black Plum Nectar, Heliotrope, and Roasted Tonka Bean.
And this month we get a bonus fragrance sample for men:
Jimmy Choo Man Blue Eau de Toilette Spray – 2 ml Value $2.47
This fragrance has notes of Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Cypress, Leather, Grey Amber, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Vanilla Bean.
Verdict: This box has an estimated value of about $47.26 (not counting the makeup bag.) I think that’s a great value for a $15 beauty box considering they including a $10 coupon this month, too! Plus most of the samples were good sizes.
