Christen Russo
ByChristen RussoSep 18, 2021 | 5 comments

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:

Naomi’s Favorite:

The Quickie with Naomi

The Item: FENTY BEAUTY FULL FRONTAL VOLUME, LIFT & CURL MASCARA

The Cost: $24.00

From: IPSY Glam Bag X

Why I love it: What I passionately adore about this mascara is that it applies smoothly and stays smooth. No flaking, meaning, no mascara shrapnel stabbing me in the eye. The wand is nice and long, with a great dual-use brush. This formula lengthens and curls my lashes dramatically, and I’m all about that kind of drama.

Megan’s Favorite:

The Item: Farmacy Whipped Greens: Oil-free Foaming Cleanser with Moringa and Papaya

The Cost: $28.00

From: Boxycharm

COUPON: Use code CLOSEUP to oFRA Mini Mix Face Palette – $39 value.

Why I love it: I love balm cleansers and this one is super gentle and smells amazing.

Christen’s Favorite:

Kevia seaweed scrub from Journee Box Kyoto, open to show the product

The Item: Kevia Papaya Seaweed Scrub

The Cost: Listed Value $25 

From: JourneeBox

COUPON: Use code FIRSTBOX! to save $10 off your first box!

Why I love it: First of all this scrub smells so good—earthy and sweet at the same time. But also I love that it offers both exfoliation and hydration. It left my skin feeling amazing!

Sanna’s Favorite:

The Item: Earth Harbor Marina Brightening Ampoule

The Cost: $38

From: FabFitFun

COUPON: Use code MSA to $10 off your first box.

Why I love it: This might sound silly but I love skincare and the routine of putting on different serums, creams, and lotions but it’s always been more about the ritual for me than any real noticeable effects. I guess I was in preventative mode before but now that I’m older I actually need products that do something. This brightening ampoule definitely gives you immediate results. My skin is noticeably brighter, less pigmented, and glowy! The smell is incredible, like a soothing, slightly herbal scent and the pretty blue color of the product itself is so beautiful.

Sanna subscribes to FabFitFun on her own, but this product is featured in Megan’s FFF review. Read more reviews by Sanna here!

 

Jessica’s Favorite:

The Item: Lapcos Calming Bikini Mask

The Cost: $7

From: Birchbox Limited Edition Set for Summer Set

COUPON: Use code FIRST15 to save 15% off your first Birchbox purchase and get free shipping on $50+ orders! (Not valid for subscriptions).

Why I love it: I thought I had masked every body part there was to mask, but then this showed up- and honestly, I love that it did. It provides everything you love about a sheet mask (a cooling sensation, soothing irritated skin, hydration) for some of the most delicate skin on your body. If you visit the salon for waxing, trust me when I say this may be the new holy grail product you need when you return home from your esthetician.

I didn’t think the Farmacy oil-free foaming cleanser was a balm.

Also, a lot of women do their waxing right at home!

Gabriella

Any brand suggestions? I’ve always wanted to wax, but could never have someone else do it!

Jody E

I just opened my Farmacy cleanser. It is awesome! I have the mascara but did not try yet. Look forward to it.

Alice

The Papaya Seaweed Scrub is one of the best products I’ve ever used. Divine.

Christen

YESSS so glad you agree!
