The first item in my box was 3 foil packs of Caldrea Body Lotion in three different scents, Aloe Water Apricot, Tea Olive Lime, Coconut Fig Leaf. I tried the Tea Olive Lime one first because I like citrus scents. As soon as I opened up the pouch I got the immediate perfume headache. This was so strongly perfumed and doesn’t smell at all like citrus! So this would not be a lotion to wear under the perfume you would want to wear for the day. Even though I did have a bad headache from the lotion I did try out. This is a light weight lotion that sank in quickly. Not a lotion I would use for really dry skin.
The next item in the box was a Dual-Phase Eye Makeup Remover from MAKE. This is like your typical eye makeup remover with the separate layers that have to be shaken before using. I have used this almost every night since I got it and it does work well. It takes off my water proof mascara and eye shadows without a problem. I also like that it doesn’t leave my eyelids super greasy feeling like some of the other eye makeup removers like this. I would say this is my favorite thing from the box.
The next item in the box was also an item from MAKE, a Silk Cream lipstick in Sandstone. This is a matte lipstick that is really moisturizing! I liked how this felt on my lips as it felt more moisturizing than my favorite Revlon lip butters. I’m not too crazy about the color as there is a hint of rusty orange in it and I don’t like that color with my skin tone. Saying that I would be willing to try other colors.
The next item is Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo. Having curly hair this is not a product I can use as I wouldn’t be able to brush in the product. Don’t think it would be a good look for me to have white powdery hair so I gave this to my mom. So I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a review but it does smell nice. 🙂
The last thing I got was the beauty extra which is an emery board from Madewell for Birchbox. This is medium grain emery board and has a cute pattern on the other side.
Over all I did liked this box and can’t wait for next month’s!
