The majority of the products included in the October Benevolent Beauty Box are totally out of my comfort zone which makes this box very fun to me. I love having products that I normally wouldn’t buy, (for whatever reason), to play with.
I went through a whopping 33 items in October! I’m so happy I was able to use up so much and that some of these are products I’m looking forward to purchasing again.
I highly enjoyed the October Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. The products chosen for this box complement each other so well that I was able to use all of them in one day, which is not something that always happens with beauty boxes. The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box costs $22.95 per month and contains 4-7 deluxe sized samples and full sized products with this specific box being valued at over $78!
I was very happy with the Fall Quarterly Vegan Cuts Makeup Box. This season’s box contained four full sized products valued at $154. For only $39.95 per quarter, that a pretty awesome deal!
Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in ‘Gwyneth’- RV $24
Au Naturale Organic Creme Eye Shadow in ‘Ivory’- RV $20
I enjoyed the September Petit Vour Beauty Box. I was happy to receive a few products that I’ve wanted to try/heard good things about.
The September Box included:
Osea Ocean Cleanser- RV $16, (full size $44)
Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream- RV $14
Adorn Mineral & Organic Hydrating Cream Foundation- RV $4, (full size $50)
Odacité Serum Concentrate- RV $3, (full size $32-42)
I was able to finish up five products last month and have so many that are almost done. I’m happy that I was finally able to empty some of these products.
Box Naturals Luxe Towelettes (RV $1.50 for sample size, $9 for full size): I received this product in my August Petit Vour Beauty Box. These wipes smelled lovely. Since I don’t really use wipes, I will not be repurchasing.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve (RV $6): I really enjoyed this product. I used it mostly as a lip balm, but I also used it on my ankles, elbows and hands when they were feeling particularly dry. This product is a bit greasy. As much as I liked it as a lip balm, I don’t know if I’m going to buy it again because of the packaging. I feel like tins can get too germy.
Blistex Deep Renewal Lip Balm (RV $3.49): This is a pretty nice lip balm. It really seemed to moisturize my lips well. It doesn’t have much of a flavour and is slightly greasy in texture. I will not be repurchasing.
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (RV $5.99): I buy so many products that promise to make my hair do anything, but nothing ever works. This spray smells a bit salty and does give my hair some texture, but I don’t get pretty mermaid waves from using this whether I let it air-dry, curl or scrunch my hair. I won’t be purchasing this again because it didn’t really help me style my hair at all.
E.l.f. Expert Eyeliner in ‘Jet Black’ (RV $2): I purchased this product to learn how to use liquid liner so that I could mess up without spending a ton of money and was pleasantly surprised at how great this liner was. The brush is nice and pointy and gives a very precise line. The product lasts all day unless you get it super wet. I will definitely buy this again when I use up the other liquid liners I have.
Until next time,
It was really nice to receive mostly non-makeup items in the box this month. I’m getting slightly overwhelmed by the amount of awesome makeup products I’ve been getting! I also really adore skin/hair care items.
