I have been excited about this box since putting together my Spring Luxe Box preview post, and it was worth the wait. It was full of products I’ve never used before, and some that I’ve really wanted to try. The value of this box was comparable to previous boxes, and I received the same items in my regular subscription and for writing the spring preview post which I really didn’t mind.
Approximate Value: $66.00
Crabtree & Evelyn – Petal Pink Nail Lacquer
The Petal Pink nail lacquer is sheer in colour. This fast-drying polish glides on smooth for gorgeous, glossy colour.
The colour they show it as on their website is far darker than it actually is. It’s a super sheer pink, perfect for french nails.
Eyeko – Brow Gel
$15.00 | 4 ml
This nano-brush and botanically-enriched formula effortlessly defines brows for a natural finish whilst maintaining a healthy brow look. Infused with key ingredients Keratin and Gingko Bilabo combined with natural proteins and multi vitamins to condition, thicken and visibily improve the appearance of your brows.
I’m not totally sold on this – the shade is fine, though it is a bit shimmery – but I don’t find that it holds my brows in place as well as my ABH brow gel does. I will hold on to it and give it another try though!
Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation
Indulge in flawless, come-closer coverage with a sensually silky finish that’s so weightless…it’s like wearing nothing at all. This skin-pampering formula—the best of a bb & foundation in one sexy package—delivers light-to-medium coverage and is clinically proven to increase hydration, brighten and smooth skin while softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with vitamin C and marine algae extracts to deliver a weightless, breathable texture that seamlessly blends into skin.
I’m glad they include 4 shades to test. I haven’t tried it yet but I am almost out of foundation and my Sephora order is 2 weeks away so… I’m sure I will soon!
Collagen Caviar Cotton Sheet Mask
A pure cotton sheet mask with caviar for healthy, revitalized skin. It contains caviar extract, marine collagen and pure gold to help detoxify and moisturize the skin.
I was a little intimidated by this when I first looked at it, but I gave it a try and really liked how it left my skin feeling. Check out the mask in action here I am saving the other one for my next at-home spa evening!
Double Ended Blending Brush
Apply foundation flawlessly with this double ended blending brush, which combines a foundation brush and blending sponge into one easy to use tool.
This was the item I most wanted to get, and I think I hyped it up too much in my head. I don’t use a flat brush to apply my foundation anyway, and I prefer my beauty blender sponge. It also smelled a bit funny and chemically when I first took it out of the package, washing it seemed to help though.
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract
$6.10 | 50 ml
Practical and quick to use, Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract is ideal for people with little time, and therefore unable to wash their hair. It owes its cleansing properties to an original combination of highly absorbent agents that act as truly effective sponges to soak up dirt or sebum on the scalp. Hair volume and bounce is restored in just a few minutes.
Loooooove this. It smells amazing and I don’t find It leaves a white powder behind after I brush it through. It’s available at shoppers too so I’ll be grabbing a full size version ASAP!
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
$14.00 | 30 ml
Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant rapidly exfoliates both the skin’s surface and inside the pore, reshaping the pore lining and unclogging pores. It creates radiant, even-toned skin while reducing redness. The result is a dramatic improvement in the skin’s appearance, feel and function which leads to healthier skin. This product can be used by those with all skin types, but the texture is especially suited for those with normal to oily or combination skin, stubborn blackheads or blemish-prone skin.
I tried this for the first time last night after washing my face – I have heard amazing things about Paula’s Choice so I will definitely make this part of my routine for a few weeks at least. I’m interested to see if it does anything for hormonal blemishes.
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
$5.00 | 50 ml
This award winning, iconic body butter is jam packed with softening shea butter and aloe vera to transform dry skin leaving it velvety smooth. The Righteous Butter is Britain’s Best Body Butter and has achieved cult like status with one sold every 20 seconds around the world. This luxurious body butter features a new dynamic moisture trap matrix to help hold hydration in longer. Its alluring scent of Soap & Glory’s signature Pink Fragrance combines fresh bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, oakmoss, amber, and warm vanilla notes. Recommended for all skin types especially very dry skin, skin is left delicately fragranced, hydrated, super soft, and completely comfortable.
I walk past this endcap every time I am at shoppers, and I’m always tempted to grab something… but I never do. That’s going to change now! This body butter smells divine. I need to own everything that has their ‘signature pink fragrance’ because I love it. It also leaves my skin feeling really nice.
Overall super happy with my luxe box! Looking forward to what summer has to bring.
Have you used any of these products before? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
