The Goods

  1. Rosewood Reviving Mist – MONU. Regular price: $6.67

This mist is created using an invigorating combination of Lemon, Rosewood and Sandalwood Essential Oils, and leaves skin feeling deliciously cool whilst providing an irresistible fragrance to awaken the senses. An innovative blend of active ingredients naturally purifies the skin, refreshing tired and dull complexion in no time. This spray can be used to set or fix makeup,  or  keep yourself cool by spraying on yourself when it is hot or humid. I attend a lot of music fests and the Evian spray water is my must have item for keeping cool during concerts. This mist does one better by actually creating a cooling sensation on my skin. Winning!

  1. Daily Repair Eye Treatment – eb5. Regular price: $20.00

A revolutionary treatment against dark circles, puffy eyes and crows feet. Peptides from soy and rice plants, extracts from the stevia plant, and Vitamin E all come together in one great cream.  Use this cream to wake up tired eyes, it will increase blood flow to the area, fighting dark circles and puffiness. I did not notice a difference right away, but it says on the site after  4 weeks of daily use  users saw 25-30% reduction in puffiness, improvement of dark circles, and fewer crows feet and fine lines. I’m going to continue to use this and hope for the best!

  1. Micellar Cleansing Water – Lierac Paris. Regular price: $6.00

Lierac Paris  Micellar Cleansing Water features a lightweight botanical formula that easily removes dirt, excess oil and makeup from your skin without drying or causing irritation. Ecoskin complex preserves skin’s moisture and pH levels with probiotics and honey extract. Lindseed, white lily and mallow extracts soothe and soften skin’s texture for a refreshed and dewy appearance. I used this to remove my makeup and everything wiped away easily. Although this has anti-aging ingredients, hyaluronic acid can’t penetrate skin because the molecules are too large so in my opinion it’s strictly for removing makeup.

  1. Brow Duo Pencil – ModelLauncher. Regular price: $12.00

This luxurious Brow Duo Pencil will add shape to even the most stubborn eyebrows. Begin your makeup application by sculpting your brows, which are the focal point of the face. A micro mechanical brow pencil that shapes, defines and fills in sparse brows for a natural look. Create a more defined brow by filling in areas that may be sparse or over-tweezed. The firm tip draws ultra fine lines, allowing you to create the look of natural brow hairs. My last brow pencil just ran out last week so I was super happy to see this! I love the shape of the tip, it’s perfect for making defined and well shaped eyebrows. Now I won’t have to buy another brow pencil for awhile!

  1. Volcanic Minerals Twist Eye Shadow – Korres. Regular price: $18.00

This long lasting eye shadow comes as a chubby crayon that can be twisted up as it wears down. I couldn’t believe how rich and pigmented the color is as soon as it hits my skin, no building needed! It goes on super smooth, super creamy and makes my eyelids glow all day. I love the Golden Bronze color, it’s subtle yet classy. I honestly wish I had all of the colors because this eye shadow blows powder shadows out of the water!

Value

The products in this month’s box are worth about $62.67. For a $21.00/month subscription, that is a pretty great value. Even though I am never disappointed in Glossy Box and they always have high quality products that I love, I cancelled all my beauty boxes that cost more than $10.00 because I can’t afford everything lol. I only got this box because they were running a “BUY 1, GET 2 FREE” ad. I will review the other two boxes in a separate post. .

Try GLOSSYBOX today using this link and enter code “SECRET” to get a free BONUS BOX with the purchase of your Glossy Box.
