Abby’s Favorite:

Target Beauty Box March 2019 - SheaMoisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment Front

The Item: SheaMoisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment

The Cost: $8.99

From: Target Beauty Box

Why I love it: I’ve been using this cream on damp hair after every wash, and I love the softening, smoothing effect it has on my flat hair. It is great for detangling, too, and makes my hair smell amazing! SheaMoisture products are also sulfate, phthalate and cruelty-free which checks all of the boxes for me.

Ragan’s Favorite:

Vegan Cuts Beauty March 2019 - Gleam

The Item: Gleam Lip Radiance by Melanie Mills in “Uncontrollable”

The Cost: $24

From: Vegan Cuts Beauty

Why I love it: This is a fun color, but also just a really good lip product in general.  It goes on smoothly, it doesn’t transfer like crazy (only a little), and it is moisturizing — it is comfortable to wear all day.

Jessica’s Favorite:

Ulta The Glow Up Kit Review March 2019 - LORAC Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer in Dusk Front

The Item: LORAC Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer in Dusk

The Cost: $35 for the full-size

From: Ulta The Glow Up Kit

Why I love it:  I was genuinely surprised by how much I loved this- using it as primer underneath light coverage foundation really made my skin have a natural glow that looked amazing. In a pinch, this can be used as a highlighter or mixed in with your foundation, too. There are a lot of similar products like this so I don’t *need* to buy the full-size version, but boy do I want to!

Haley’s Favorite:

Sephora Play March 2019 box 109 cicapair moisturizer open 2

The Item: DR. JART+ Cicapair ™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30

The Cost: Buy a 1.7 full size for $52

From: Play! by Sephora  

Why I love it: This is a fantastic color corrector – I’m so happy to have another sample! This moisturizer turns from green to skin color in a way that doesn’t show at all and totally cancels out any redness. Over this past year, I have noticed some issues with redness in my complexion and this moisturizer makes the perfect primer to prep for makeup. It’s a very thick moisturizer, but it works well on my dry skin after it sets and my skin absorbs it. Plus – yay for SPF 30! This is a product I plan to purchase full-size.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I love this post. I’m always interested in what beauty products people like.

  2. Jessica’s favorite from the Ulta kit is not from a sub box. Kinda odd to have it listed as a sub box favorite.
