We know you love our monthly favorites posts so here’s our 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: Scentuals Rosehip Beauty Oil Blend
The Cost: $22.43
From: Vegancuts Beauty Box
COUPON: Use code MSA to save $5 off your first box!
Why I love it: This was a new item for me as well as a new brand and I’ve always liked the discovery aspect of subscription boxes. I also really like skincare with antioxidants and rosehips are high in vitamin C. It also had some pretty immediate effects (well, overnight, anyway) with respect to improving redness and it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily.

Naomi’s 2 Favorites:
The Cost: $26.00
From: Nourish Beauty Box
COUPON: Use code NOURISHADDICT15 to save 15% off your purchase!
Why I love it: This is a first for me. Anyone who knows me will tell you: I don’t like perfume, any strongly scented products, or anyone trying to sell me essential oils. But this delightful little roll-on has changed my whole perspective. The scent is incredibly unique, calming, and soothing, with a combination of rose, cardamom, and pepper, creating an extraordinary spicy musk. This wonderful little product came to the beach with me all of August. The indulgent scent was an extra little self-care step I could take for myself, especially in such stressful times as the world is in now. It took my relaxation time to a whole new level.
The Item: TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
The Cost: $6.00 (Full-size $48.00)
From: Ipsy Glam Bag
Why I love it: Face mists, especially ones with ultra-fine misters, are one of my favorite skincare products. Tatcha really delivered here with this micro-misting hyaluronic acid skin mist. Not only is the light spritz super refreshing, but it also nourishes skin. It always leaves my skin feeling bouncy and hydrated. I may be a little obsessed… The only downside is that this bottle is very small and I’m almost completely out, and I want more! But at this price point, the product is definitely for fancy ladies and not budget babes like me.

The Item: Lovinah Eye Magic Palette
The Cost: $45
Why I love it: This eyeshadow palette is full of magical shimmers and pigmented matte shades, and I love that it is from a Black-owned brand that ensures their products will work for all skin tones. Plus, even though some of the colors are downright bold and beautiful, there are colors in here that are also work-makeup friendly.

The Cost: $19.99
From: Kinder Beauty Box
COUPON: Use code MSA5 to get $5 off your subscription!
Why I love it: My hair has been the last thing on my mind this year. It’s been tied up pretty much every day since March, but when I use this hair scrub, I have to let it flow! The uplifting pear fragrance lasts until I wash my hair again, and it gives my typically flat hair some texture to work with. I’ve been using this scalp scrub once a week, and I love the way it leaves my scalp feeling squeaky clean.

The Item: amika Flash Instant Shine Mask
The Cost: Buy a 6.7 oz full-sized bottle for $25
From: Sephora Favorites
Why I love it: amika products always smell so good! If this mask did nothing else, I would still use it to infuse the fragrance into my hair. But it does do something! I was really happy to see my hair looked smoother, shinier, and softer than my usual sans-hair-mask washes. My favorite thing about this? It takes 60 seconds! As a mom of 3 small humans, I usually don’t have time in the shower to sit and let a 10-minute mask sink in. Plus, I should be able to get 2-4 uses out of the 1 oz sample tube that they sent. This is a win for me!

The Item: Peace of Mind Aromatherapy Balm
The Cost: N/A
From: Wicked Good Perfume
COUPON: Use code BACK15 to save 15% off your first box.
Why I love it: I’m going to be so sad when I eventually run out of this balm because it is so soothing to my sinuses which have been acting up lately due to allergies. I normally use basil essential oils on the bridge of my nose and my sinuses, but this also has peppermint and eucalyptus in it which provides even more relief. Plus it’s in a small tin that is so easy to take with me wherever I go for instant relief. There is also lemon and lime in this blend, although those were much more subtle in comparison to the other stronger scents.
