Oui Fresh December 2018 Review
You’ll find an info card that doubles as a print and lists all of the items, plus where you can buy more of them.
Leahlani Pamplemousse Tropical Enzyme Cleansing Oil, 1.01 oz. travel size – Retail Value $16.14 (Buy a full size 3.38 oz. for $54.00)
I’m not a big fan of cleansing oil because it just feels like too much, but I jumped into this one and am really glad I tried it! I was impressed with how light and not-oily this is. It even foamed a little which made it feel like it was really getting the dirt out of my face. It left my skin feeling so hydrated that I didn’t feel the need to add more moisturizer in the evening. If you’re looking for a way to pare down your evening routine or save a couple of minutes, I highly recommend this one! It also happens to smell tropical and wonderful due to the pineapple and papaya extracts (along with other tropical oils)!
Pink House Organics Glow Stick in Champagne – Retail Value $12.00
I’m a big fan of the way this highlighter is packaged which makes it easy and mess-free to add some glimmer to your face. Normally I use my fingertips to dip into a larger solid cream compact but this one comes in a lip balm-like tube that can be glided across my upper cheekbones to achieve the same results. This is the perfect highlighter to travel with since it’s small and quick to use! Love it.
Honey Belle Lip Scrub, 1 oz. – Retail Value $12.00
My lips are never as soft and kissable as I’d like, so using a lip scrub can gently exfoliate them closer to my desired texture. This formula simply uses honey, coconut oil, and brown sugar so it’s safe to lick a little off after scrubbing. I like to use this at night before bed in my skincare routine and add a lip mask right after before going to sleep. The results the next day have been favorable!
Oui Fresh Cinnamon Essential Oil, 0.17 oz. – Estimated Retail Value $11.33 (Buy the “Cozy” mini set for $34.00)
Cinnamon is a wonderful scent for the winter holiday times so it’s a great addition to the box this month. This mini bottle of essential oil is perfect for me to keep at the office to refill my candle diffuser. It has a great spicy fragrance and the info card suggests to also use it in a DIY lip scrub recipe to add “plumping power” since it’s a natural way to stimulate your lips. Never thought about using it in that way before! Perhaps I can add it to the one above?
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Chai Latte, 6 ct – Buy a box of 10 for $16.99
Wow- this is sooooo tasty! This is the second mushroom drink mix I’ve received this month in a beauty box so it’s clear that this is a popular thing right now. Oui Fresh sent 5 individual packets of this Mushroom Chai Latte mix that contains turkey tail and reishi. This has the zesty spice of a chai but with no caffeine and is also dairy free (it uses coconut milk powder) when mixed with water or a milk substitute. I just used water and it’s really good on its own but I can see it being much more latte-like with milk. It says that the included “cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and ginger as a calming blend for your stomach” and overall promotes gut health. I’ll have to look into all these benefits, but for now, I am enjoying the way it tastes.
Verdict: I am really feeling the December Oui Fresh Beauty Box! I really enjoy all five products they sent and even think there are a couple of discoveries that I’d purchase again (looking at you, mushroom chai and cleansing oil). I like that this box keeps it short and simple without overloading me with products yet still has a nice variety that I can use in different aspects of my beauty routine. Well done!
