CampusCube Girls Glow Spa Cube Review
This month came with some example letters, presumably from your mom and a friend named Mac. They go with the theme of this self-care package for someone far away from home.
Let's dive into the items!
Daily Wonders Break Up With Your Ex-Skin Cell Mask - Retail Value $9.00
This mask was really calming! It immediately reduced my redness which I always consider a bonus for my sensitive skin. After removing it I gently patted in the remaining serum (there was plenty!) and used my favorite night moisturizer. Bliss.
Daily Wonders Detox and Chill Mask - Retail Value $9.00
I always recommend products containing charcoal for anyone who is in the middle of a breakout or has acne prone skin in general. Charcoal is one of the most beneficial and natural ingredients you can use to help! This mask felt really nice on and was a treat for my PMS-y and cranky skin.
Daily Wonders Pore Gone For Good Pore Refining Mask - Retail Value $9.00
This mask also had so much serum! While I didn't notice any real pore reduction, I still very much liked this formula and found it relaxing and calming to my skin, which is really all I need in a mask. The smell was fresh and light.
Essential Wonders Good Har Don't Care Shine Mask - Retail Value $7.00
This mask I actually wasn't a huge fan of, but I don't generally like hair shine products because they decrease the natural texture of my hair and I prefer it a little wild. I know many normal people like soft and shiny hair, so if you fall into that category you will love this mask. It also smells wonderful!
Essential Wonders Talk to the Hand Hand Moisturizing Hand Mask - Retail Value $7.00
I enjoy hand masks and this one was no exception. I used it along with my new electric hand warmers for an extra luxurious experience. The serum absorbed easily into my hands and left them feeling so soft. I plan on buying a few of these to get me through the winter since I am always forgetting gloves and my hands get so red and chapped.
Go the Extra Mile Notepad
I feel like we always get a cute notepad in this sub, and I always have a use for them! This one is pretty much perfect for grocery lists so I plan on keeping it in my kitchen. It would also be great for leaving notes to your roommates if you have wildly different schedules and miss each other a lot during the day.
Everyone Lotion in Lavender & Aloe, 6oz - Retail Value $4.59
This lotion smells so good! I love the strong but creamy lavender scent and the formula itself feels great on my skin and absorbs quickly. The formula is heavy on the coconut oil, which should help your skin feel moisturized and healthy. I also covered my feet in this heavier lotion then wore socks over it while I slept, which is one of my favorite super easy self-care steps during the winter months.
Stash Tea Trio
I truly adore Stash Teas! My favorite hands down is their Double Bergamot Earl Grey, but I like that they included three flavors I don't have in my normal rotation. I also like that all three of these flavors are caffeine free, so you can enjoy them at night while you mask and relax without compromising your sleep later on.
Olly The Perfect Women's Multi – Buy a 90 gummy container for $13.99
Admittedly, I am really bad about taking vitamins. When they are gummy though, I really can't resist! These handy little packets have one day's worth and they were super easy to toss into my purse and keep with me on the go. They were also super tasty! I might have to become someone who remembers vitamins on a more regular basis!
Cute Pillowcase Trio
These would have been so incredibly cute in my dorm room! My husband probably wouldn't appreciate them very much now, but I have passed them on to a younger cousin who will absolutely enjoy them much more. I think the illustrations were spot on for the spa theme and I appreciated the sturdy yet soft cotton fabric. Can you ever really have enough pillowcases??
Mood Maker Color Changing Polish - Retail Value $14.00
These polishes weren't that great. They had an incredibly strong Formaldehyde smell and the color changing was really slight and arguably non-existent. The application was also spotty, even on the third coat. While I appreciate the thought in regard to the theme of this sub, unless you just really adore the colors, I would skip these.
Vanilla Scented Nail Polish Remover Pads
Admittedly, I was shocked these little pads worked as well and quickly as they did. When I opened the container, there were absolutely none of the sharp chemical smells I generally associate with nail polish removers. There was a super subtle vanilla scent. I was really pleased with how effective this formula was without the overpowering scent I was so used to.
Pedicure Foam Toe Separators
This month also come with some super useful toe separators for you to use while you pamper your toes! I like how they send two pairs, as pedicures are always more fun with a friend.
Aloe Infused Spa Socks
These socks are so very cozy! They are infused with skin-loving ingredients like aloe, eucalyptus, and jojoba oil, which means that along with keeping your feet warm, they also give your skin a little love too! The pink color was way cute and they fit snugly, but comfortably.
Verdict: This month's CampusCube basically nailed dorm spa night. I would have absolutely adored this mix of products while in college and would have felt so spoiled to share this haul with my closest girlfriends for a night in of papering before finals. There were more than enough masks to go around, tea for three, and each pal could leave with an adorable pillowcase to remember the evening. The only real miss for me was the nail polish duo, but if you are anything like me you have about a billion other shades in your stash that could easily stand in. Although I was unable to price out the exact values of some of these items, this box has at least a $59.59 retail value considering just the masks, nail polish, and lotion alone. It is a great value!
