A quick look at the beauty subscription boxes, samples and empties from last month.
June 2018 Sephora Play Box
Milk Makeup Kush Mascara in Boom Black :: This is a lovely light mascara, great for those not looking for volume. My lashes almost felt moisturized — a definite bonus!
Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover :: Loved this. My eyes are very sensitive, and removing eye makeup can be challenging. This was effective and painless.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B :: It’s no joke — this is MATTE, but it glides on nicely and the color is beautiful. Definitely something I’ll save for Fall.
Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb :: I’ve been using this at night recently since I ran out of my usual nighttime moisturizer. Actually loving this for Summer PM. It’s hydrating without leaving my skin greasy. A must have in your beauty routine, especially in the cooler months ahead.
Alterna Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist :: I have naturally curly hair, and since getting this product, we’ve had some very humid days. Does this work? I’m not sure yet. I’d like to give it another go under more ideal weather conditions.
June 2018 Birchbox
ModelCo More Brows :: Maybe I’m more of a powder person when it comes to my brows, but I did not love this. It just felt heavy and clumpy. I know a lot of people love Glossier’s Boy Brow and the like, but it has never quite made its way into my beauty arsenal.
Davines SU Hair & Body Wash :: I absolutely love this. The scent is amazing, and I’ve used it as both a shampoo and body wash. Would totally repurchase.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer :: Really enjoying this moisturizer. Nice alternative to my usual beauty regime, especially during the Summer months.
Marcelle City Anti-Pollution Micellar Foaming Cleanser :: I’ve been using this almost every morning in the shower to gently wash off all of my nighttime skin routine products. Refreshing, but not stripping. A perfect reset for all my AM skincare goodies.
Tatcha The Silk Cream, Radiant Deep Brightening Serum and Violet-C Radiance Mask :: During the recent Tatcha Summer sale, I snagged a few samples to try some of the (VERY MANY) products I have my eye on. Of course, each sample went on like a dream and I loved them all. Two out of the three (mask and cream) are cruising their way up the “Need vs Want” list!
Amore Pacific Time Response Eye Reserve Creme :: I know I spoke of it before, but this is just the most amazing eye creme. It’s like an instant eye lift. I’ve never seen an eye cream that works so well. Downside, it’s VERY expensive, so I’ll just continue snagging these samples where I can and gushing over how wonderful it is.
Drunk Elephant Beste Jelly Cleanser :: This cleanser is gold. The bottle you see here is my second completed, and I’m sure I’ll be back again. For right now, I want to try out some new products, but if you’re looking for a go-to gentle cleanser, this is an excellent option.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer :: Love this moisturizer — it’s my third empty! — but it is definitely a cooler month option for me. Wanted to finish it out before the hotter temps came out swinging.
Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil :: I miss using this, and would definitely repurchase.
The Crème Shop Calm Down, Skin! Sheet Mask :: Used this after a long, sunny (and wonderful!) day on the boat. It was an Easter basket present, and the graphics made wee man laugh hysterically. Couldn’t ask for more.
