Wow… What a full week it has been! I had a good friend in town. In addition, a couple of awesome friends just recently moved here, so I’ve been partaking in some sort of social activity every day from Wednesday to today. Wooo, I’m worn out! Some highlights, a lot of FOOD (sushi sushi, POPEYES, Shake Shack, sushi!, gelato, …. JUMBO PIZZA SLICE)… and just fun activities.
I received my blush Mystery Beauty Box yesterday and am happy to rest it with now.
***Coupon: If you’d like to try blush out but are not willing to subscribe, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a referral link for a $10.00 off a one-time subscription (or it’s really off any $30 product at DermStore, blush or HairEnvy)
Philip B. Maui Wowie Beach Mist (5.07 oz) $22.00 value
Full size!! Do these beach sprays actually work? I’ll give it a try… Blush had a Philip B product (hairspray) in the last box. I hope they’ll change it up a little more next time
MOR Emporium Hand Cream – Snow Gardenia (3.3 oz) $20.00
This is from the black collection… the packaging itself makes it look like a luxurious hand cream. I love the smell of gardenia and I’ve been looking for a hand cream, so I’m so happy to have received this! What’s in it? Shea, Cocoa Butter, Glycerin, Sesame Seed Oil, Allantoin, Irish Moss, Vitamins A&E all to hydrate and moisturize the skin! It’s also free of parabens, mineral oil and synthetic dyes, if that’s something you’re interesting in. It’s such a light scent that feels so wonderful… I can’t stop using it!
PIXI Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen – No. 5 Deep Plum (0.04 oz) $15.00
I’ve seen great reviews about this Eye Pen, so I’m excited! (see picture below for close-up of pen tip) It’s waterproof and glides on easily! Also, I’ve never ventured past using black liner, so I’m excited to try it out in Deep Plum. I took a look and some of the other colors they have seem fun, too! My only question is, how do you sharpen such a pencil?
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat (0.11 oz) $12.15
This is a deluxe sample… you use it on top of your mascara to add shine and make your mascara waterproof. I don’t use mascara so I’ll be putting this in a future giveaway (STAY TUNED~!!!!!!)…. I checked out reviews on Sephora and seems like most people really love this product … so good thing is that it works!
Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant (0.5 oz) $5.71
**Shoutout to dearest Charkie! This is apparently a Hungarian skincare product I was also so excited to receive this daily use rice-based exfoliant (see picture below for texture). It’s in a loose-powder form … and you can just use a little with some water on your face. It’s lovely!
Coola SPF 30 Face Classic Sunscreen – Cucumber (0.23 oz) $4.32
I received this product in my May birchbox (see review here) – so it’s nice to have another one
Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Lip Gloss – Hush (0.36 oz) $20.00
Another organic lip gloss from blush beauty! It’s a nude-pink tinted gloss… looks nice. I’ll probably be gifting this one, however, since I have too much lip gloss at the moment.
Carita Paris Masque Biologique – Biological Face Mask (0.5 oz) $26.47
Oh my gosh. This is one expensive product… the full size mask (1.7 oz) is $90.00! I love masks… and this one seems to be help brighten, enhance and renew tired, dull and aging skin. Unfortunately, I would never purchase this product at full price… but that is the reason why I love subscription boxes! I love trying different products… that I could never really afford at their original price!

**Free sample - I am not sure why I got two… but it’s a good thing. I already got the Dremu Airbrush Eye Refining Treatment (.10 oz/ $9.06) sample in a previous box (SEE HERE) , so I’m glad to have also gotten a Alchimie Forever Rejuvenating Eye Balm (0.068 oz/$9.38).
Wow! I love Blush beauty box! I wasn’t so happy with my last one… but this one made up for last months! I will continue to stick with blush … it’s actually one of the few subscriptions I’ve kept! This month, I received $125.65 worth of products (with the samples includes, the value comes to $144.09!!)… I’d say that’s a pretty great value for the $24.95 that I paid. Did you get this month’s box? Did you like it? What was your favorite product? Would love to hear your alls thoughts!
Have a great Sunday and I hope you have a good week!
