The Miracle Beauty Box Review
Here is the info booklet for the box that lists how much money is donated if you choose to purchase these items through iWorldShoppingCenter.com.
We received some foil samples from Kiehl’s, Eshave, and Lipsmart.
We also received a blister sample of some Jane Iredale lipsticks.
Kiehl’s Creme De Corps, 2.5 oz – Retail Value $11
I really love Kiehl’s so I was excited to give this body lotion a try. The texture is lightweight and it sinks in quickly, but it is still nourishing thanks to ingredients like cocoa butter and sesame oil.
Caudalie Vineactive Serum, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $17.33 (buy the full-size version for $52)
I love Caudalie, and this serum is designed to brighten and fight aging thanks to ingredients like vitamins C and E. Since this helps to protect against pollution and sun exposure, I have been using this in the morning and have been happy with how it performs in my skincare routine and under makeup.
Bogavia Elasticity Body Oil, 2 oz – Estimated Value $31.17 (buy the 3.85 oz version for $60)
Wow- this is pricy! I wasn’t paying attention to what this cost when I tried it out, and now I feel like I need to use it again and judge it more harshly. This is made with awesome skin oils like jojoba, baobab, and pomegranate, and it smells lovely thanks to ingredients like peppermint oil, green tea, and rose. I am a fan, and I will use up all of this generous-sized sample.
Bogavia Refreshing Body Wash, 2 oz – Estimated Value $4.50 (buy the full-size version for $18)
This body wash has a much more reasonable price, but I still found it to smell nice and be soothing to my skin thanks to ingredients like aloe vera, grapefruit, tangerine, vanilla, and shea butter. As a whole, both products from Bogavia impressed me, so this was a nice brand to discover.
Creed Millesime Imperial Perfume, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $4.74 (buy the full-size version for $395)
Well, this takes fancy to a new stratosphere. I have never heard of Creed before, but they have been in business since 1760 and provide perfume to European royalty. This is the “gold standard in fragrance” that “evokes citrus groves and lush seaside palaces.” I thought it smelled nothing of the sort, but it was a nice enough sample to try. And if you’re going to spend $400 on a perfume, isn’t it nice that over $100 will be donated if you buy it through this company?
Voluspa Mini Decorative Tin Candle in Blond Tabac – Retail Value $10
This was one of two only products in the box I couldn’t find on the iworld site, though they did have other scents available. This is my first time trying Voluspa, and I was really happy with the scent throw that filled my bedroom. Blond Tabac is a blend of vanilla husk, sandalwood, and “warm perique tabac” (can someone fancier than me please tell me what that is?). It smells delightfully clean with a touch of warmth, and the wax is a proprietary coconut oil blend.
Pure + Fresh Vitamin D + Calcium, 60 Count – Retail Value $18
I take a lot of supplements, and I am always happy to see them pop up in subscription boxes because they get expensive fast. Both Vitamin D and Calcium are good for supporting healthy bones, healthy muscles, and your immune system. This bottle is a one month’s supply, and they are vegan and free from allergens like dairy and soy.
Pure + Fresh Konjac Sponge – Retail Value $10
I love Konjac sponges for providing gentle exfoliation when used in tandem with my cleansers, but they are a luxury I don’t go out of my way to pay for. This was gentle and performed just as well as any other konjac sponge I have tried even though I am not familiar with the brand.
Ouai Scalp & Body Scrub, 1 oz – Estimated Value $4.32 (buy the full-size version for $38)
I have sampled this before and I am happy to have more of it – it smells great while providing a gentle exfoliation thanks to the sugar base. This can be used on both hair and body, but since my hair can be temperamental I use it just on my body and enjoy it that way.
Modern Luxuri Beauty Sponge, pack of two – Retail Value $29.90
I have tried a lot of beauty sponges, and these ones don’t make the cut. They are so soft that I actually had a hard time blending in my makeup because the sponge kept absorbing it. At almost $15 per sponge, either spend the extra money for a beauty blender or save some money with one from Real Techniques.
Modern Luxuri Hair Ties – Retail Value $12
I am a big invisibobble fan, and while they are similar, they aren’t as good. They don’t snag in my hair but they do stretch out a lot faster, which is an inconvenience.
L. Erickson USA Small Bit Barrette Silk Charmeuse in Radiance – Retail Value $38
I have never actually used a barrette that fastens like this, and I am not quite sure how to use it or where in my hair it goes. The neon pink with gold accents isn’t exactly my style, but I bet it would look cute with a simple black dress and bright pink lipstick.
Marvis Toothpaste in Classic Mint, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $4.04 (buy a full-size tube for $10.50)
As far as toothpaste goes this has a pretty strong following, and this was my first time trying it. I liked the refreshing mint flavor that left my teeth feeling clean, but I wouldn’t purchase it outright due to it being fluoride-free.
The Verdict: This was a new experience for me, and while it was a lot to go through overall, I really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed discovering Voluspa and Bogavia while also getting products from brands I already love like The Ouai, Kiehl’s, and Caudalie. The fact that $20 of each box purchased is donated makes the fact that this box has a total value of $195 even more incredible (and blows the promised value of $150 out of the water).
