What's Inside This Box
Franklin & Whitman Vitamin C Eye Serum - Retail Value $39.95
You had me at eye serum (although this is more of a moisturizing oil than a serum). Looking through the ingredients of this powerhouse, I am not surprised that, paired with a decent night's sleep, it performed a slight eye brightening miracle overnight. Concentrated vitamin C does the bulk of the brightening while squalane and chamomile hydrate and soothe the sensitive under-eye skin. It makes me wary to put anything on my face that has fragrance, let alone near my eyes. I am surprised that the fragrance didn't irritate my skin, and I am also hopeful that it doesn't over time.
Jubel Naturals Daily Dew - Retail Value $35
Daily Dew may actually be a "nightly do"; this rather thick oil doesn't sit well under makeup, but it is one heck of a nighttime moisturizer. If you are sensitive to fragrance oils (guilty!) you may want to skip this one; I prefer not to use anything with perfume or fragrance as I said above, so I will likely gift this to my sister, an essential oils enthusiast. Rosehip, grapeseed, and evening primrose oils are used in this blend for their hydrating, soothing, and anti-aging properties.
Rosatyque Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask - Retail Value $6
Woof, another fragrant skincare item. It is a shame that so many natural options use essential oils and fragrance to spice up their products. I love using options with plant-based and vegan ingredients, but it seems like there aren't too many unscented varieties. I tried the charcoal mask from this brand, and I could barely keep it on my face because the smell was so potent; this mask had the same effect. Hyaluronic acid is a superstar ingredient that boosts hydration and helps your skin to retain moisture.
Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner - Retail Value $2.99
Sukin's website says that one of these toners sells every 40 seconds; that is a cult favorite stat for sure! Toner is multi-tasking; you can spritz this after cleansing, before makeup, after makeup, or in the middle of the day when you need a pick me up. It is a lovely spray that had a softening effect after cleansing, and it helped to give me makeup a more natural finish. I decided to keep this in my office fridge for an afternoon refresher.
Peek Beauty Metalimatte Quick Drying Blush - Retail Value $18.50
My love for cream blush comes alive, especially during winter. It helps to give your complexion a glow that powder blushes could never pull off. This formula is so easy to swipe on and blend, I think I had both cheeks done within 20 seconds. It is gorgeous!
This blush gave me the healthiest glow, and it was so easy to apply.
January's Kinder Beauty Box was a little skincare-heavy, and there were a few items that did not work for me. Typically, Kinder Beauty mixes it up every month with skincare, makeup, and body products, but I think this month's theme, Fresh Start, took us back to the basics. I would have loved to have a few fragrance-free options, but those are somewhat hard to find in the natural beauty realm. I will definitely gift the items that didn't work for me, so they will be put to good use. This month’s box has a retail value of $101.44, triple the box's cost of $26.
