What's Inside This Box
Earth Harbor Balancing Gel Hydrator - Retail Value $28
Earth Harbor is slowly becoming my go-to brand as I incorporate more and more vegan products into my life. This women-owned brand uses all-natural ingredients that are non-GMO, non-toxic, and totally plant-based. When I first tried this gel hydrator, I considered it a bonus moisturizer for my dry skin during the winter, but after a few days of using this day and night, I think I may need this in my life forever. I use one pump after my serum and before my emollient moisturizer, and it adds a dewy glow I absolutely love. Plus, the color of this gel is stunning, and it looks great on my vanity.
Ma Soiree Nail Wraps in Champagne - Retail Value $15
I have big opinions on nail wraps, and typically, I can tell immediately if I love a brand or hate it (there's no in-between). I usually go for nail appliqués that are thin, easy to stretch, and can be removed with nail polish remover. They seem to stay on the longest and are the most comfortable to wear (I hate when nail wraps start peeling at the corner of my nails). That being said, I was convinced that I would hate this product. They were thick to apply, and I had to file them to fit my nails (they didn't stretch over my nail and rip off like the ones I usually prefer). Even after I covered my nails, I thought I'd be peeling these off while catching up on Dexter the next day, but I was very pleasantly surprised!
Although these are thicker, they have completely adhered to my nails! I am thrilled that I don't have any corners peeling up, and it has been over 48 hours. They have rocked my whole theory, and this fun, glittery look may even last through New Year's Eve.
Artist Couture Diamond Lights Finisher in Golden Hour - Retail Value $25
If you know me, you know that I love glitter. Nothing makes a look stand out more than some subtle shimmer or sparkle, or you could be like me and plaster the shiny stuff all over your lids. I was very impressed with this glitter topper; it was so soft that it stuck right to my finger, and I was able to apply it directly to my lids by just tapping it on.
This swatch is a light dusting, but you can pack it on for a stunning gold look.
Franklin & Whitman Northern Liberties Face Mask Mini - Retail Value $9.95
I have reviewed this product previously; here is what I thought about it then:
Since my skin has been especially dry recently, I decided to do a patch test of this mask on my hand first. White kaolin clay, French red clay, oryza sativa starch, and hibiscus rosa-sinensis are the only ingredients in this powder mask; they work together to purify and exfoliate by absorbing excess oils, stale sebum, and impurities leaving your skin clear and radiant. It is exactly the kind of exfoliation I love! I added a few drops of water to about half a teaspoon for the back of my hand. The instructions say to not quite let this mask dry, so after about 7 minutes I wet the back of my hand and gently massaged the mask into my skin as I rinsed it off. It has a gritty, sand-like texture that makes your skin feel baby soft but can be a little abrasive (but also feels amazing!).
Olika Hydrating Hand Sanitizer Spray in Cucumber Basil - Retail Value $5.99
At first glance, I really thought this was a Peeps branded hand sanitizer, but no colorful, sugary, or marshmallow sanitizer spray for me. After some initial disappointment, I realized that Olika's is probably a better fit for me. The bottle is recyclable, reusable, and refillable. It is so convenient for the car, and I love the soft herbal cucumber basil fragrance. This bottle holds over 500 sprays, but you need about four per use to really saturate your hands.
Here is my look using the Artist Couture topper. I love the festive sparkle paired with a bold red lip.
December's Kinder Beauty Box rocked! What a great box to help me prepare for the holidays. I used the exfoliating mask and my new favorite gel hydrator, applied a fancy, glittery manicure, and topped my everyday liner with the gold eyeshadow topper. I also have a Peep-shaped sanitizer to protect me from all of those holiday germs. All of the products were easy to use, and they made me feel fabulous. This month’s box has a retail value of $83.94, triple the box's cost of $26.
