Subscription Box Unboxing
Subscription Box Review
Everything that I received in my August, “Bare Yourself” themed Ipsy Plus Box. This is probably my favorite box yet! All of these items are AWESOME!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert
The inside lists each of the items that we received along with their retail values.
AHAVA Hydration Cream Mask
The first item in our box is this bottle of cream mask from AHAVA. AHAVA is one of those brands that has been popping up all over in subscription boxes and I’ve never gotten to try any of their products, so I’m excited to have gotten this mask. This is infused with Dead Sea Water and is mineral rich. The best part is if you are a gal on the go this mask only needs to stay on 3-5 minutes. But if you want to really get the most bang for your buck you can leave this mask on overnight and rinse it off in the morning.
Purlisse Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
Alright. I’m kind of exhausted on Purlisse products, particularly from Ipsy but this product is really nice. It’s a moisturizer that includes SPF so I don’t have to try to blend sunscreen onto my face! This is a little bit more gel like than I prefer (my dry skin needs a thick moisturizer) but the inclusions of white tea, vitamin e and algae sound pretty promising. I’ll definitely be giving this a shot!
Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in Forever Fades Fast
Then we have this gorgeous nail lacquer from Smith & Cult. I LOVE this packaging. It is super fancy and makes giving myself an at home mani feel really special.
This is a really opaque rose color and is also 8 free as well as cruelty, paraben and phthalate free.
F.A.R.A.H. Brushes She Me Magic Eye Brush Set
Oh my. These brushes are BEAUTIFUL! Probably my favorite item in this box just for the aesthetic aspect. The handles look like ombre wands and the bristles are duo-tonesd. These synthetic brushes are vegan and cruelty free. I haven’t used these yet but looks like you could do a complete eye look with them!
TheBalm Cosmetics In the Balm of Your Hand Greatest Hits Volume 2
Finally, we have this Greatest Hits palette from The Balm. This palette includes shadows, blushes, bronzers and highlight all in one palette.
Here is the palette. It does have a mirror and the layout was a bit confusing but I figured it out!
Here is our top row swatched. That Mary Loumanizer!
And then the bottom row swatched as well!
So in summary
Presentation: Everything arrived to us perfectly in our Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for August.
Quality: We received products from great, high end brands that we’ll definitely be using.
Curation: This package was excellent and for the second month in a row blew BoxyCharm out of the water!
Box Economy: For the price of this box ($25) we received $178 in products which is an awesome deal!
