GMA Discover the Deals November 2018 Review
Here is the info sheet for the box, along with a few coupon codes for the included brands.
Aid Through Trade The Original Roll-On® Bracelet – Retail Value $15
I think this is the third Aid Through Trade bracelet I have received from Discover the Deal, and while the bracelets are nice I think if the boxes are going to be offered on a regular basis, they shouldn’t send the same item three times (even though, yes, they’re different patterns). This bracelet was handmade in Nepal, which provides job opportunities and empowerment for the women there.
Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer, 2 oz – Estimated Value $1.83 (Buy the 12 oz version for $10.99)
I love that this was hydrating and I could apply it directly to wet skin (sometimes I forget to apply lotion while I am waiting for my skin to dry… oops). This is unscented, so it should be a good option for those with sensitive skin that is extra dry. This was also in the October Discover the Deal box.
Murad Revitalixir™ Recovery Serum, 0.17 oz – Estimated Value $11.21 (buy the full-size version for $89)
This serum is designed to improve stress-induced dryness, dullness, and puffiness- something I have a LOT of now that finals are here. I liked that this was safe to apply to the eye area, and it includes ingredients like niacinamide (love!), caffeine, and cannabis sativa seed oil. My heart stopped when I thought I had a marijuana serum, but this is actually made from hemp seed oil! This didn’t leave my skin sticky, it absorbed quickly, and it layered well with my other skincare products. This was also in the October Discover the Deal box.
Poo~Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray in Original Citrus, 2 oz – Retail Value $9.95
This really works well at preventing odors from leaving the toilet bowl, and I will leave it at that. The scent is a mix of cinnamon, clove, and citrus essential oils, and it does a good job of not mixing with other odors to create something unpleasant. This was also in the October Discover the Deal box in a different scent.
5th & Madison Winter Forest Travel Tin – Estimated Value $8.50? (based on a similar item here)
I will happily take every tree-scented candle out there and this candle is no exception. Though it is little, it can fill my bedroom with the nice forest scent that brings me back to my undergraduate days in Flagstaff, Arizona.
butter LONDON On The Glow Highlighting Pen, Full-Size! Retail Value $12
The applicator for this highlighter is only slightly bigger than an eyeliner (maybe about the size of a Sharpie nib?) which really allows you to apply the highlighter exactly where you want it. I like the shimmery gold, and this size is perfect for applying highlighter to my inner eyes and the arch of my brows.
Here it is swatched.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Melting Balm, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $4.44 (buy the full-size version for $38)
Farmacy Green Clean is my go-to makeup cleansing balm, and it's really the only other product I have tried to compare it to. I found that this left my skin more hydrated than Green Clean, but Green Clean does a better job removing mascara. This balm was gentle and didn’t clog my pores.
KOCOSTAR Rose Petals Face Mask – Retail Value $5 (found here for $3.50)
If you liked the Kocostar rose lip mask that came in the November Allure Beauty Box, this face mask is for you! Instead of being a typical sheet mask it actually is two sheets of sheet mask slices that you can apply wherever on your face (or body!) needs the hydration. This had a rose scent that I found pleasant, but if you're sensitive to scents you may find it overbearing.
MantraBand Gratitude Bracelet – Retail Value $25
This silver bracelet is simple and dainty, with the word “gratitude” stamped into the center. This is adjustable and would be cute stacked with other bracelets or worn alone for just a touch of polish to your outfit.
4id SlapWrapz in Green – Retail Value $12.99
Discover the Deal frequently includes one non-beauty or lifestyle item, and I actually really like the practicality of this item. It is fluorescent green and lights up, and it can be worn as a bracelet or fastened to a jacket or dog collar so when you’re out at night you can be easily seen. Considering it gets dark around 5 pm here now that Daylight Savings Time is in effect, this is both useful and safe!
Parasilk gLOVE Treat Gloves – Retail Value $32.95
These are absolutely my favorite item of the box. I have insanely dry cuticles that are made worse by constant nail polish removal, and I LOVE paraffin wax dips- but they're hard to find! These gloves have the wax inside of them that you heat up in the microwave, and the entire process was simple and straightforward. After a few minutes setting everything up my hands were in heaven thanks to the warm wax, and extra bonus points for these being reusable!
The Verdict: Discover the Deal really sends an interesting mix of things I never would have thought of and things that are right up my alley. My only complaint is that I wish there were fewer repeats- it felt especially glaring this month. That being said, I am in love with my paraffin wax gloves and feel like the overall value is there for the $36.99 box cost (my value estimate comes to $138.87).
