Our monthly favorites posts have been so popular, we decided to start a monthly post highlighting our favorite BEAUTY discoveries from subscription boxes! Here are our favorite skincare, green beauty, and makeup items from the past month:
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.

The Item: Delia 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!

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!

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!).

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)
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!

The Cost: Retail Value $2.99
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.

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?

The Item: Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara
The Cost: 2ml Value $6.50 (Buy an 8ml tube for $26)
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.

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.
