Product Testing

Hey Beauty and Subscription Box Lovers! These are the subscription box products I received and tested this week. These are my honest opinions and suggestions. I have linked where you can buy the products if you so choose. I hope you learn more about the products subscription boxes offer. I really enjoy testing these products. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

PRODUCT TESTING: 

ALTERNA REPLENSHING MOISTURE MILK ($30; Sale: $18)

IMG_1352

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. I am a huge fan of leave-in conditioners (if you don’t already know). I also really like the Alterna Caviar line, so I couldn’t wait to test this product. I just have to say that I love this product. It leaves my hair feeling so nice and shiny. It also does not weigh my hair down at all. The only negative is the lotion is thick and does not work as a hair spray. However, I just spray it into my hands and apply to my hair. It works amazing this way. I really love this leave-in spray. Also, I didn’t notice any strong smell from this product, it just smelled clean.

TANGLE TEEZER ($15)

IMG_1351

I received this product in my September 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. I love this little guy. I love the purple and pink colors. I did not think I would like this product as much as I do. I didn’t think the design of the brush would be easy to hold. However, the design of the brush makes it so easy to brush your hair. The brush stays in my hand and it really does detangle my hair. I have long hair that gets tangled so easily. I love using this brush with both wet and dry hair. It does not break my hair and leaves my hair tangle free. I also love the massage it gives my head. I am so in love with this brush.

PIXI BY PETRA GLOW TONIC ($15)

IMG_1353

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. I have heard so many amazing things about this toner and it has a cult following. It is suppose to exfoliate your skin and give you a glow overtime. I didn’t notice any extra glow to my skin (I only used it for a week). However, I really do like this toner. It stings a little, but it’s not really that bad. It really leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. I really need to buy the FULL SIZE of this toner to really test it out. So far, I really love it.

SOAP & GLORY PILLOW PLUMP XXL LIP GLOSS IN PINKWELL ($14)

IMG_1350IMG_1356IMG_1357

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. This is another product that has a cult following. I really love the color of this gloss and it looks so natural on the lips. It made my lips look lush and kissable. I didn’t notice any major plumping, but it did make my lips look nice. You can definitely feel the tingle in this gloss, but it is not painful. The tingle lasts for awhile too which is crazy. It felt like pop rocks on my lips. I love the chocolate scent of the gloss and it totally makes me want to eat it. I really enjoyed this gloss.

DIVINE & SEXY ORGANIC ROSE WATER + MAGNESIUM ($11.99)

IMG_1305

I received this product in my August 2015 Adore Box. I love facial sprays and this one is wonderful. It feels so amazing on my skin, especially when the weather is hot. My face feels so refreshed and hydrated. I also love using this spray to wet my makeup brushes when applying eyeshadow. This really amps up the eyeshadow pigmentation and even helps the shadows last longer on my eyes. The rose scent is not overwhelming (it actually barely smells of rose). The scent is very faint. This really is an awesome spray and I will be repurchasing it. It seriously may become a Holy Grail makeup product.

L’OCCITANE SHEA BUTTER EXTRA-GENTLE SOAP IN VERBENA ($7) 

IMG_1405

I received this product in my September 2015 Beautyfix Box. I don’t use bar soaps often but after using this product, I need to. I love this soap so much. It lathers so nice (I was shocked). I love how moisturized my skin felt after using this soap. It smells nice and is very gentle (it really is extra-gentle). It did not strip my skin of moisture at all. I really didn’t even need to use lotion after using this soap. I love it.

SKYLAKE SILK COCOON HAIR CONDITIONER ($36)

IMG_1444

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Mishibox. I have never tried Asian hair care and was excited to try this sample. I love how this conditioner made my hair feel. My hair felt so smooth and was so shiny. It looked so healthy. The conditioner is not thick at all, but left my hair so soft. However, I hate the smell. It smells so awful (like green tea gone bad). I would really love to purchase this product again, but I can’t because of the smell. If something smells bad, I just can’t buy it.

Holika Holika Basic Nails Nail Polish in Joyful Mint ($5)

IMG_1443IMG_1479

I received this product in my September 2015 Mishibox. I really love this color and it is the perfect color to end the summer. I received so many compliments when I wore this color. When you receive compliments on a product, you know you have a winner. The formula almost looks like gel polish. It is a very thick formula and you could get by with just one coat. The polish lasted about 4 days without chipping (no top coat was used) which is good in my opinion. It is a very shiny polish and I really liked it.

CLEOMEE DONKEY REAL MILK OIL MASK ($45.54) 

IMG_1445IMG_1486

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Mishibox. I am a huge fan of sheet masks (I say it all the time). I love getting them in subscription boxes and never get tired of them. I was really intrigued by the name of this mask (Donkey Real Milk Oil). Never head of Donkey in a product before. I couldn’t wait to try this mask. I really enjoyed the mask and it left my skin so plump and hydrated. I love how my skin feels after using sheet masks. You seriously have to try sheet masks if you never have. I also love patting in the excess product. I love the formula of this mask and how soft my skin felt.

HEY HONEY I PEEL GOOD! SKIN CREAM ($59)

IMG_0434IMG_1483

heyhoney

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my July 2015 Glossybox. This is a very different product. It is suppose to reveal new skin. You rub the thick goo on your face for 2-3 minutes until the product turns into an oil. This gel is very thick. It feels like I am putting straight honey on my face. I didn’t notice much exfoliating, but it did leave my skin a little red (like exfoliation does). My skin felt so smooth and soft after using this product. I had fun with this product and loved how my skin felt. I don’t know if I would purchase the FULL SIZE, but I will gladly use up this product.
