The Fall 2018 Beauty Report Box Review
Here is the info sheet for the products included.
Derma Protect Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50, Full-Size! Retail Value $45
Well, with this one product we are already over the cost of the box and then some! This SPF 50 sunscreen provides great sun protection while not being too greasy for my oily skin.
Eu2Be Nurture + Nourish Lotion, Full-Size! Retail Value $40
Another single product worth more than the entire box! This has a strong, natural scent that isn’t my favorite, but the scent isn’t terrible either. This is packed with 13 different kinds of butter and oils, and it really does provide intense hydration where your skin needs it.
GrandeLips HydraPlump Liquid Lipstick in Smoked Sherry, Full-Size! Retail Value $25
This is the third box in a row that I have received a Grande Lips lip product, and I wish they would change it up (my sister swears by their lash serum and I would love to try it!). I have actually gotten this exact shade before in a Sephora Favorites kit, so here I am wearing it:
This had a mild tingling sensation that didn’t burn, but I did think the formula applied a bit patchy.
ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets, 4-ct – Estimated Value $9.99 (buy an 8-count box for $19.99)
This is listed as a full-size box, but there are only 4 sheets inside when all of the ones online contain 8 (excluding the fancy c-section scar sheet that comes in a pack of four). This is another item that has come in the past three boxes, and I haven’t had any issues with scars in that time. I passed the last box along to a friend who is undergoing tattoo removal, and she said these silicone sheets made a big difference in the recovery time and appearance of her tattoos!
Veneffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $5.88 (buy the 5.1 oz version for $60)
This cleanser is designed for oily skin and has ingredients like willow bark and pomegranate extract designed to control excess oil production, minimize pores, and add some brightness to your skin. I found it to be non-drying and it didn’t irritate my skin thanks to calamine being one of the ingredients!
Taut Collagen Mask, 1 mask – Estimated Value $10 (buy 5 masks for $50)
I love a good sheet mask and this one did not disappoint. It is made with hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, squalene, and vitamin C, and it left my skin hydrated and bright after wearing for 20 minutes.
Biopelle Tensage Intensive Serum 50, 1 ampoule – Estimated Value $19.50 (buy 10 for $195)
This box really does the most when it comes to sending out fancy skincare samples. This is designed to “radically” improve skin tone and texture and it is made with antioxidants, peptides, and snail secretions. I do think it made a small difference in the appearance of my skin, but I think you will get better results if your skin is a bit more mature than mine.
Hum Beauty zzZz Supplements, Full-Size! Retail Value $10
This is one of the items I was most excited about- I love these supplements! I have paid full price for them before because I really noticed that they helped me to fall asleep and sleep deeper, and I wake up more refreshed after using this in my nighttime routine.
Replenix Neckletage, 0.35 oz – Estimated Value $18.12 (buy the 1.8 oz version for $88)
I don’t have neck wrinkles and I would like to keep it that way, so I have been using this as a preventative product. It has peptides, antioxidants, niacinamide (which my skin loves!), caffeine, and ceramides. Basically, this is packed with amazing ingredients and I like the way it makes my neck feel after using, even though I can’t attest to if it improves wrinkles or age spots.
Sio Beauty Super EyeLift, 2 pack – Retail Value $24.95
These came in the Spring Beauty Report Box and my opinion on them hasn’t changed even though time has passed. These are reusable silicone patches designed to help with hydration and wrinkles around your eyes, but I find them awkward to wear because they didn’t stick well- they don’t stay on my face throughout the night, so by the time I wake up they are essentially ruined.
Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50, 0.3 oz – Estimated Value $6.50 (buy the 1.8 oz version for $39)
Colorescience is such a good sunscreen brand, and this did not disappoint. It is lightweight and goes on sheer, and it has niacinamide in the ingredients so this should also be safe for sensitive skin.
Glowbiotics Probiotic Skincare HydraGlow Cream Oil, Full-Size! Retail Value $59
This is a fancy moisturizer designed to provide “instantaneous hydration, loving rejuvenation, and entire facial restoration.” Honestly, though, I thought this moisturizer was all talk and little action. It has mica in it that gives your skin a superficial glow, but I didn’t see results that would lead me to think it would improve my skins natural glow. This also wasn’t a good fit for my oily skin, but the thicker oil consistency had a nice texture when applying.
HAU Hair Pack, Full-Size! Retail Value $15
I enjoyed this hair mask- it was easy to wear and I thought it made my hair softer and shinier. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t purchase it again because I realized after that this is made with sulfates and silicones, two ingredients I try to keep out of my hair.
NeoStrata Skin Active Tri Lifting Serum, 0.1 oz – Estimated Value $10 (buy the 1 oz version for $100)
This serum packs a hydrating punch thanks to the hyaluronic acid and amino acids in the ingredients. This is designed to plump skin that has wrinkles but my wrinkle-free skin liked how plump and soft it felt the next morning after using this the night before.
Dr. Lima Barely There, Full-Size! Retail Value $24
This is a lightweight moisturizer that is made with aloe vera, and I think it is a really solid moisturizer for the price.
Epicuren Discovery Pumpkin Apple Spice Peel, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $10.10 (buy the 2.5 oz version for $50.50
One of my favorite face masks in the fall and winter is the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, and I found this to be really similar! It is made with pumpkin and apple enzymes to help remove dead skin cells, and it also helped to tighten my pores. Also, it smells delicious.
Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip Back to Youth Ageless Mousse, 2.4 oz – Estimated Value $9.60 (buy the 8 oz version for $32)
This is described as a mousse but it really has a thicker consistency then what I would say a mousse is. It is made with beeswax and lanolin and it really packs in the hydration, but I would be cautious to not use too much at once.
Phyto-C Skincare O-Live Gel, 4.5 mL – Estimated Value $19.50 (buy the full-size version for $130)
So this box came with SO many items that I didn’t realize my box was missing this sample until I sat down to do this review. Oops. We reached out to customer service about the missing item and I am currently waiting to hear back. This is a hydrating gel packed hyaluronic acid that is designed to calm dry, irritated skin.
The Verdict: This is one of the best-value boxes out there that you can get for $29.95. There are so many full-size products that there really is something for everyone in here, and even though I was missing one sample I didn’t even miss it until I was looking at the info sheet. If I had one complaint it would be that I wish they would mix it up with the Grande Lips and scar away sheets, but that is almost inconsequential when you look at the box as a whole. I calculated a value of $342.64 for everything except the missing O-live gel. The Beauty Report promised the box would have a value of over $350, and the value of that missing gel would definitely make the entire box meet that promise.
