Macy’s Beauty Box February 2021 Review
Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included, a pro tip, and your $10 beauty coupon code to be used at Macy’s stores or online. This month also came with a little drawstring bag to hold all of the products.
I loved researching this brand! They focus on eco-responsibility and how to help reduce waste. This fragrance was also amazing! It is made with star anise, galbanum, and vetiver from Hati. It is very floral and earthy with a bit of a musk overlay. It really does smell like fresh spring rain. The scent is on the stronger side for me personally, but I really love the earthy notes and how it wore throughout the day.
I have been on a hunt for the perfect eye cream, oil, or serum for me. I am starting to notice some ‘laugh lines’ around my eyes and just a general dryness in that area. The tricky part is that my eyes are very sensitive so I have to be careful about any products that are going to get close to my eye area. This oil has been great so far because a little goes a long way, I just put a small amount in my hand that I can lightly dab in my trouble areas. This oil is made with chamomile extract, avocado oil, and aloe vera juice. The blend focuses on reducing inflammation, soothing irritation, hydrating, and smoothing wrinkles and crows feet. I can’t speak to the long-term results of this oil just yet, but I can say that this hasn’t irritated my eyes at all and has given me an extra boost of hydration.
Elemis is a brand that I see a lot of bloggers using on Instagram. I have one person in mind wh0 I know swears by Elemis so I was really excited to finally give this brand a go! This peel is best for mature or sensitive skin which is what I have and they recommend using it twice a week. This peel is a cream, which I loved, that you just apply to clean skin, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it off so it really is non-abrasive. It is made with milk protein, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, and marine algae. All of these combined work to purify, revitalize, exfoliate, and smooth lackluster skin. My skin felt super smooth after rinsing the peel off, but I did wake up feeling like my skin was a little drier than it has been. Once I applied my makeup though I saw a big difference in application and felt that my skin had a fresh glow to it. I can’t wait to start using this a bit more often to see how the long-term results are.
Perricone MD Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Skin Therapy Soothing & Hydrating Eye Cream, 0.25 fl oz. – Estimated Value $36.00 (Buy a full-size 0.5 fl oz. for $72.00)
I normally wouldn’t love seeing such similar products in one month, but since I am trying to find that perfect eye cream, I was excited to try this to compare to the oil. I was really excited to try this brand since it is hypoallergenic and specifically for sensitive skin. It is also free of 26 known allergens and fragrance-free. All you have to do is gently pat the cream to your eye area in the morning and/or evening. This cream is made with CBD to nourish, bisabolol to brighten, and marigold extract to hydrate. I really loved how this felt on my skin. It was cooling and felt hydrating on my eye area that normally does tend to feel a bit dry. It does seem that this product is more to brighten and hydrate which is great for me right now as my eyes are so dry and tired from allergies, while the oil really targets smoothing wrinkles and crows feet.
Give me all of the repair cream! My hands are so dry right now, it is actually uncomfortable and rather embarrassing at this point. Nothing seems to be really working in a big way so I am just using everything multiple times throughout the day. This cream so far is really helping! It is a thick cream but absorbs so quickly into my skin without leaving me with that greasy feeling and the hydration really lasts. The cream is made with colloidal oatmeal that works to relieve itching and minor irritation caused by eczema, rashes, and other skin conditions. Other key ingredients include allantoin and shea butter for that extra boost of moisture.
This serum is oil-free and goes on like silk. Since this is so light it just absorbs right into your skin, which I found worked really well with my makeup. This blend focuses on reducing the appearance of dark spots, acne marks, sunspots, scars, and creates a more even skin tone. The major ingredient in this serum is viniferine which is an ingredient from grapevine sap. It is known to brighten, lighten, and even skin appearance. While I can’t speak to the long-term effects of this product, I am loving how this is making my skin feel immediately. It works so well with my makeup and leaves me feeling hydrated with an overall evenness to my skin tone that is also helping with some redness I have been experiencing as well.
Verdict: This Macy’s Beauty Box was a big hit for me! All of the products were meant to help get you grounded in skin-loving ingredients from Mother Nature. Everything felt nourishing and hydrating to my dry winter skin. I normally would be a bit bummed to see two eye products in one month, but I loved being able to try both products. Plus, they both seem to focus on different things which made them even more fun to try to decide what might work best for me. My dry hands are loving the ultra-hydrating cream, the perfect item for a February box after this cold winter. I was so excited to try Elemis and was so happy that the peel did not disappoint. It was soothing while still exfoliating and really seemed to smooth out my skin. The Caudalie serum is another winner, focusing on brightening dark spots and improving your overall skin tone. This month’s box has an estimated value of $110.90 which is incredible! I have been on a new skincare journey to try to evolve my products to get my skin back into shape. Product curation like this month with such high-quality items really allows me the chance to test products that I might not buy on my own to decide what my skin needs. Anything that doesn’t work is always fun to share with family or friends. What a fun box this month that brought the quality!
