Marne’s Favorite:

The Item: Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream, Travel-Size 15ml

The Cost: Retail Value $46.00

From: SkinStore x Erno Laszlo Limited Edition Beauty Box  (Sadly, now out of stock!)

Why I love it: This month was tough to choose a beauty product! There were so many good ones this time around! I ultimately had to go with the Erno Laszlo Night Cream since I feel like it has honestly transformed my skin to be even softer than ever. I just love the way it feels and makes my skin look when I wake up.

Abby’s Favorite:

Kinder Beauty Box Natural Beauty Subscription Box February 2019 - Mask1 Kinder Beauty Box Natural Beauty Subscription Box February 2019 - Mask2

The ItemDelia Organics Skin Detox Rehab Mask

The Cost: Retail Value $16.99

From: Kinder Beauty Box

Coupon: Use code MSA_KINDER to get a free bonus item with your first box!

Why I love it: This mask gave my skin new life. Every time I’ve used it my skin appears clearer and more radiant, and it also helps to minimize and heal breakouts. It is not an easy mask to wear because it flakes everywhere after it dries, but put this on right before a bath, and treat yourself to a relaxing spa day!

Krista’s Favorite:

Lipstick Junkie Review February 2019 - Liquid Lipstick Three Lipstick Junkie Review February 2019 - Makeup Look

The Item: Phase Zero Makeup Liquid Matte Lipstick in ‘Gingerbread’

The Cost: $9.00

From: Lipstick Junkie

Coupon: Save 30% off your first box! with coupon code LIP30

Why I love it: This was a new-to-me brand, and I enjoyed getting to try it out. This berry shade with warm undertones really suited my skin color, and I found it to be a great option for a wearable but bold look. Also, the formula wasn’t as drying as other liquid lipsticks that I’ve used in the past, which is a huge benefit!

Ragan’s Favorite:

Rosepostbox February 2019 - Shimmering Rose Body Polish by Modern Skyn Alchemy

The Item: Shimmering Rose Body Polish by Modern Skyn Alchemy, 1 lb

The Cost: $18.00

From: RosePost Box

Coupon: Use code MSA10 to save $10 off your first box!

Why I love it: Scrubs are my favorite types of bath and body items to receive in subscription boxes.  This is a sugar scrub, which is my preferred form because it dissolves and it isn’t harsh if you have a cut or scratch.  It also has a nice scent (and not too much oil!).

Megan’s Favorite:

GlossyBox February 2019 arizona perfume

The Item: Proenza Schouler Arizona Eau De Parfum, 9 ml

The Cost: Estimated Value $22.50 (Buy a full size 50 ml here for $75.00)

From: GlossyBox

Why I love it: This perfume was a scent departure for me. I always wear heavier, masculine scents with moody notes. This is literally the opposite of what I like, but I already plan on buying a bottle when this (generous) sample runs out. It is the scent of sun and sand, but more in a desert sort of way than beach. It is floral, stones, and powder. The scent sticks to my skin and becomes more interesting the longer I wear it. The full-size bottle is also a minimalist work of art!

Shatae’s Favorite:

Target Beauty Box - Bar Soap 3

The Item: SheaMoisture African Black Soap Face & Body Bar

The Cost: Retail Value $2.99

From: Target Recline and Unwind

Why I love it: Made with natural and organic ingredients, this African black soap cleanses and hydrates both face and body. It’s perfect for acne-prone and oily skin and leaves skin calm, clear and balanced revealing a clearer complexion. I initially thought that this bar would be too harsh for my skin for daily use, but I stuck with it after noticing how hydrated and bright my skin looked after using it. I’ve been using the bar for a few weeks now and my skin is gorgeous! I’m truly impressed with the results – especially considering how inexpensive this bar is.

Brandi’s Favorite:

 My Fashion Crate Subscription Review February 2019 - Mai Couture Rose Hip Oil Blotting Papers Front Top My Fashion Crate Subscription Review February 2019 - Mai Couture Rose Hip Oil Blotting Papers Inside Top

The Item: Mai Couture Rose Hip Oil Blotting Papers

The Cost: Retail Value $10

From: My Fashion Crate

Coupon: Use code MFCMSA10 to save 10% off your first box!

Why I love it: These blotting papers are such a unique beauty item to receive in a box. I love the design of this set with the marbled cover to the rose pink sheets. They are much fancier looking than the old blue ones we used to gross each other out with when I was a teen! In addition to removing dirt, oil and excess shine, these also contain rosehip oil that can actually improve your skin. There are 60 sheets here that won’t disturb your makeup but instead will fight those free radicals that can cause aging. Who knew these little sheets could be so powerful?

Tiffany’s Favorite:

Eyeko mascara detail of mascara worn

The Item: Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara 

The Cost: 2ml Value $6.50 (Buy an 8ml tube for $26)

From: Ipsy

Why I love it: This is a great mascara! I like the rich black color and that it lengthens and thickens my lashes without clumping. The tube is pretty cool packaging that allows me to use the entire tube of product.

Colette’s Favorite:

Facetory 4 Ever Fresh February 2019 - BlingPop Peach Firming & Brightening Mask

The Item: BlingPop Peach Firming & Brightening Mask

The Cost: Listed Value $2.00

From: Facetory 4 Ever Fresh

Coupon: Use coupon code MSA20 to save 20% of your first box!

Why I love it: I loved the peachy scent – it smelled very much like the adored peach gummy rings – and since I’m doing the Keto diet right now it kind of oddly satisfied my sugar craving through its scent. I used it before bed and woke up to beautiful bright skin.

  1. Weird, my comment never posted. I just want to know where Anna Reilly went? She was so good, I loved her review!!!

  2. Whatever happened to Anna Reilly?? I always enjoyed her reviews and miss them!! Please let me know she’s just in vacation.

  3. that Phase Zero liquid lippie is one of the best things I’ve gotten from lipstick junkie or any other lip sub in a long time!!

  4. Marne I LOVE that face cream too!

    • It is so lovely!!

  5. Eyeko Mascara has been one of my faves for years now, especially the waterproof version. I have VERY straight, medium thick hair. My eyelashes almost point downward. I use a Shu Uemura eyelash curler and Eyeko Mascara always worked great with my lashes. You can usually find it at Anthropologie stores. Sometimes sites like Birchbox were often ‘out of stock’…

  6. I love this post for beauty! Thanks. What about favorite snack find for the month? I am always searching for something new.

    • I have a feeling you will be happy with some upcoming posts! 🙂

  7. It looks like there was a c&p error. Shatae’s comments are cut off at the end.

    I love these posts… there’s always some surprises in what you guys enjoyed the most!

    • I was going to say the same thing. I wanted to read the rest of Shatae’s opinion.

    • I was going to mention the same thing about Shatae’s review. The cutoff left me hanging! Lol!

      I also noticed no favorite from Jessica or Liz was posted. 🙁 I think Jessica reviews the most beauty boxes out of everyone, so I’d love to hear her favorite. And I’d love to hear Liz’s favorite, because… well, it’s Liz! 🙂

      • This ^

      • Right? I totally agree. I really did enjoy the beauty focus of these reviews. I think a snack one or an accessory one would be neat also.

      • I don’t think Liz reviews many boxes herself anymore.

        • I noticed that too, but I think she still reviews some of the lifestyle boxes which have beauty products and maybe Ipsy (?). Hopefully, she’ll have a favorite (maybe not necessarily beauty related) in a lifestyle sub box favorites post or something. 🙂

    • Sorry for leaving you guys hanging! Thanks for the catch!
