So this is a box that Amazon offered exclusively to around Black Friday, and I debated a while before I got it, but I am super happy I did! I know I am late getting it out to you, but I still thought it would be worth sharing! (Plus I just realized you can still buy it! So stay tuned until the end and I will link it for you all)
They offered two options, this basic beauty box for $11.99, a men's box for $9.99, and the luxury box for $19.99. I decided on this one, because though the other had some cool brands, the sizes of what came in this box were better and I saw some of the products as more useful. Now, the cool thing about these is that after you buy them you get the credit back and can buy anything in either the beauty or luxury beauty section, depending on which box you choose. So in the end, you can order a product, and everything else you get in the box is like a free bonus!
It came with the Crest 3D White toothpaste, Crest 3D White 1 hour Express Whitening strip, and Glide floss.
Because of beauty boxes like this one, the Walmart box, and the dentist, I haven't bought toothpaste in forever! This is better than usual because even thought it isn't full sized, it is significantly larger than the usual sample tubes.
To me, it seems like one whitening strip wouldn't do a whole lot for your teeth, but that was before I saw that you were supposed to leave this one on for an hour. It scares me a little bit, but it's also a pretty cool sample since whitening products can get pretty expensive.
But the floss... Come on Amazon, I can get this for free any day of the week.
So it didn't occur to me when I first opened this box that I got two of the exact same Aveeno Skin Relief body washes. I thought maybe one was supposed to be a lotion, but nope, I went back and check and apparently just lucked out because they put two in mine by accident. Regardless, I love Aveeno, even if it is a pretty small bottle.
This is the Pantene Hydrating Shampoo and the Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash.
I love having sample sizes of shampoo and conditioner to take with me on trips, but it really kind of threw me off that they only gave you the shampoo in this box... I like things in sets! Plus I always use conditioner faster, so I never have small bottles of it. Either way, I love Pantene and have tried this kind before, and I highly approve.
This body wash feels so good and moisturizing, and it makes a ton of bubbles, but there is one thing... This is probably a personal issue, but I remember my grandmother using a similar body wash when I was little so that's all I can think of!
This Venus Swirl razor is the main reason I chose this box over the luxury box. Razors are always so expensive! This razor is usually $10 at Target, so it almost made up for the full price of the box on its own. And let me tell you, this is a good razor... It makes my legs feel so smooth, it is my favorite one I've tried in quite some time. I highly reccomend trying it out!
I know these products don't really go together, but they needed a partner for pictures! This is the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub, and Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment.
I hadn't ever heard of this this Acure brand before, but now I'm kind of itching to try the whole line! I have been trying to stay away from salicylic acid facial washes, but all of my favorite scrubs contain it... So maybe this can start replacing them.
Aquaphor is honestly a miracle product. I use it on my lips as intensive chapstick, and on my feet or hands at night if they are desperately dry or cracked. That barely even scratches the surface of all the uses it has, so if you haven't tried this stuff before then you should give it a shot!
I had heard of Tom's before but I've never tried anything from the brand. I needed a new baby deodorant, so this was another big deciding factor of this box over the luxury. First of all, the lid is insanely difficult to get off, and the bottom is cracked. It smells like baby powder when you apply it, which I don't mind at all, but as the day wears on, you just smell like sweat and baby powder... It doesn't really mask the smell or stop the sweating, so I can't really say I'd reccomend this. I'll probably finish it, but not ever go out any buy it.
Finally, this box, like most other subscriptions, came with some foil packets. It came with L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Moisturizer, L'Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition: Face and Eyes System, Nivea Nourishing Body Oil, and The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth. I thought it was pretty cool that they sent a sample of each piece of the system for the top right sample, and The Body Shop is a nice brand, but what else can you say about foil packets? I gave the anti-aging ones to my mom because I don't really use products like that right now. I'm not mad at them because there were really nice bigger samples in this box too, there just isn't much to say about foil packets!
And finally, this is the product I got for free one I received the credit back for my box! This is the Acure Facial Cleansing Gel with Superfruit and Chlorella. It was only $8.34, so I didn't end up using the full credit, but I was still pretty excited about trying a new, basically free, product! I began using this regularly as soon as it came, and I have fallen in love with it. It doesn't bubble up like I usually like, but it cleanses my face really well and has helped reduce any breakouts. Also, it smells amazing! I highly reccomend giving this brand a try.
