January’s box felt a lot lighter than previous boxes. Some how, weight dictated worth, and I felt gypped. I didn’t know what to expect when I opened it up… but to my surprise… I had 3 full size items in this box, plus a sample size skincare item worth the price of the monthly box alone. I guess I shouldn’t judge a box by its weight, haha.
January’s box included:
- We Love Eyes Eyelid & Eyelash Foaming Cleanser ($20) – I was pretty excited to get this in my box because I was in need of a new eye makeup remover. But, I think it does an okay job at removing makeup, so it’s not my favorite. It sucks that I have to use it a couple of times to really remove everything. This can get pretty annoying if I’m wearing heavy eyeliner and mascara. I just prefer oil cleansers or even makeup cleansing cloths to remove makeup over this eye makeup remover.
- K Voss Cinnamon Lip Plumper ($18) – I love the concept of this but I didn’t really notice any plumping. My lips looked a little redder, especially around the edges but that was probably about it. I enjoy the invigorating cinnamon scent even though it’s very strong. Oh, and word of advice… a little goes a long way. I made the mistake of applying way too much the first time and I felt like my lips were on fire ! Since you don’t need much, this full size will definitely last a very long time.
- Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Revitalizing Face Oil ($15.20, Full Size $76) – This is my favorite item in this box. I’ve been really getting into facial oils in the past year and this is another favorite added to the list. Thanks to bitter NY winters, I’m starting to get heavy dry skin in the center of my face and my chin area. I just take a couple dabs of this oil on my finger tips and press it into those areas. It absorbs quickly, leaving behind lasting moisturization.
- Andalou Naturals Instant Hydro Serum Facial Mask ($5) – I’ve actually used another mask from this brand before and wasn’t disappointed. So I was pretty excited to see one in this box that I haven’t tried yet ! At first this does tingle on the skin, but that sensation dissipates within a couple minutes. I left this on for about 20 minutes, and after removing, and rubbing in the remainder of the serum. I had very smooth, soft, nourished & hydrated skin! Tip: Bring one of these masks along on a long airline flight to combat that dry cabin air. I snagged a few of these for my flight to Asia and really enjoyed a nice hydrating mask sky high.
