This box has a decent value, and it DOES contain a makeup item, which is always a plus! Here's everything, all unboxed.
I got a hair care item, three skin care items, and a makeup item. At least there's a little variety there.
This is a lavera Mango Milk hair treatment for colored hair and color protection. I do have color treated hair and I love hair treatments, so I'll be trying this one sometime this week. It retails for $17.50 for a pack of 5, so this is a $3.50 value. From the site:
This is a Freeman anti-stress mask with Dead Sea minerals. From the site:
I'm generally not super into Freeman masks (though I don't mind them) but if this works, it does sound like something I could definitely use. Around here, these sachets retail for about $2, while the full size retails for $3.99.
This is an eye tint from Becca in the color Vicune. I have not heard of this brand, but I'll definitely try this. It's a golden champagney shade and the consistency is light and creamy with a fair amount of shimmer. I tried to swatch it, but it didn't show up terribly well on my crappy webcam, though that's typical.
This eye tint is full sized and retails for $24 ! From the site:
An ingenious eye crème with a unique formulation that glides on as a crème and sets to a powder. This long-lasting, water-resistant, crease-resistant tint is easy to apply, offering adjustable levels of sheer to high pigment colour.
I'll definitely be using this, as I love eye makeup, and I'm glad I got this lighter shade.
While many others got an eyeliner this month, I got this serum. This 4 ml mini serum retails for $15 and is natural and free of parabens, which I like. I have a lot of serums, so I don't know when I'll try this, but I'm sure I will at some point! From the site:
True Natural Spa has your prescription for naturally glowing, youthful looking skin. Our Advanced Lift & Firm Serum improves skin clarity to immediately lift, firm and moisturize with all natural ingredients, tested for effective results while being gentle on your skin.
As I'm currently on a quest to incorporate more natural, healthy products into my life and eliminate more and more nasty chemicals, this will probably come in handy for me.
And finally, the pur-lisse pur-delicate gentle soy milk cleanser and makeup remover. This is 1.7 oz, and the full size retails for $36, making this about an $11 value. From the site:
Appreciate your skin, don’t irritate it. Cleanse away the day with this gentle, non~irritating blend of Soy Milk, Soy Proteins, Whole Oat and White Tea. A mild soap~free, non~foaming cleanser that respects the delicate nature of your skin. Leaves your face touchable and silky soft, without a trace of impurity.
This seems nice and gentle and I love the size of the bottle, perfect to keep in my work bag in case I need it. (Yes, with my job, I do sometimes have to wash my face at work. Perk of working in healthcare, I guess.)
So, all in all, this is a decent box with a value of about $55, which I can't complain about! I have canceled Beauty Box 5 for now, due to budget needs, but I wish I didn't have to, and I would definitely consider re-subscribing in the future.
