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: 

Be a Bombshell Lip Liner in Afternoon Delight ($14)

I received this product in my January 2016 Beauty Joy Box. I actually haven’t used this product as a lip liner. However, I used it as an eyeliner. I needed an orange eyeliner for one of my Mirror Image looks and I didn’t have one. I pulled this out and used it. It worked amazingly. It was so creamy and applied so easily. It lasted all day and set really well. I have nothing bad to say about this lip liner. I don’t know if I would use it as a lip liner because orange does not look good on me. However, I will definitely use it as an eyeliner. I didn’t break me out and I love how fine the tip is.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator ($28)

I received this (sample) in my February 2016 Featured Birchbox. I used this product mixed with my foundation. I apply dots of foundation on my face, then apply dots of this and mix them together with a beauty blender. It really gives my skin an illuminated effect. It isn’t too intense and looks like you are glowing from within. I love how easily it blends and that it is subtle. It didn’t break me out and it is not too glittery. If you are looking for a subtle highlight, this is perfect. I think it is stunning.

SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex ($69.99)

IMG_4797

I received this product (sample) in my February 2016 Beautyfix Box. I was really surprised at how thick this eye cream was. A little goes a very long way. It is really hydrating, but takes awhile to sink into the skin. It is such a small sample that I haven’t had enough time to really see results. However, I do like it. I wouldn’t purchase the FULL SIZE because it is a bit pricey. I also recommend using this eye cream at night.

Pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher ($16)

IMG_4756

I received this product in my February 2016 Allure The Beauty Box. I have heard a lot of positive reviews about this lip product and I love Pur-lisse. However, I was a bit disappointed in this lip balm. It is sort of moisturizing, but nothing to write home about. It is fairly thick, but I just didn’t feel it on my lips. I didn’t think it really did anything at all. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. It was like I put it on my lips and then it just disappeared. My lips felt like it had a little something on them, but not really. I really just didn’t like it and don’t think I will be using it anymore.

Leaders Black Aqua Pore Scaling Mask ($4)

IMG_4870IMG_5208

I received this product in my February 2016 3B Box. This is a really cool eye mask because it is black. I am a huge fan of sheet masks and never had a black sheet mask before. It is suppose to remove black heads and leave your skin renewed. It really did help shrink my pores a bit and my skin was left glowing. I liked this mask, but my skin was a bit sticky. I would definitely recommend using this mask at night. It wasn’t my favorite sheet mask ever, but I would use it again because it is so affordable!

I received this product in my February 2016 3B Box. This is just an average eyelash curler. It did the job and it is very affordable. I wasn’t amazed by it, but it did keep my lashes curled.

Doe Hair Pact Nourishing Hair Mask in Bora Bora ($17)

IMG_5084

I received this product in my February 2016 LaRitzy Box. This is a hair mask that you apply to dry hair. It is very thick, but turns into an oil on your hands. You are suppose to coat all strands of your hair and wait for 30 minutes. You then rinse it off in the shower by shampooing and conditioning like you normally would. I love that this mask is called Bora Bora because I want to go there so bad. It smells really nice and left my hair so soft and shiny. My hair wasn’t greasy at all, just really soft. I really liked this hair mask and I can get 3-4 uses out of this mask.

LoveFresh 100% Natural Deodorant in Moroccan Rose Absolute ($24)

I received this product in my February 2016 LaRitzy Box. I have never tried natural deodorants before so I was really excited about this product. It smells amazing! If you love rose scented products, you will love this. It smells exactly like a fresh bouquet of roses. It is a huge stick and you don’t need to use a ton. It feels really nice on the armpits and is very moisturizing. It definitely kept me from smelling! Overall, I really love this deodorant and I will definitely continuing using it. I love that it didn’t irritate my skin and didn’t leave my armpits itchy (like most deodorants do to me).

Lather Cucumber Milk Facial Cleanser ($19)

IMG_5088IMG_5203

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my February 2016 LaRitzy Box. If you love the smell of cucumber, you will love this cleanser. It is very hydrating and gentle. It doesn’t suds up much because it is a very creamy consistency. It smells so fresh and feels really amazing on the skin. It didn’t break me out and I just love that it doesn’t strip my skin of moisture. I really like it a lot.

Spongelle You Have My Heart On A String ($15)

IMG_5097

I received this product in my February 2016 Boxycharm Box. I love these sponges so much. You simply wet them under the shower and then use them like a normal sponge. The soap is built into the sponge and lasts for at least 12 uses. I loved the scent of this and really enjoyed using it. I could seriously fill my entire bathroom with these because I love them so much. I also really liked that this one has a scrubby side for exfoliating. My skin was left hydrated, scented, and glowing. I just can’t say enough good things about these.

OFRA Banana Powder Godet ($12)

I received this product in my February 2016 Boxycharm Box. Finally, a banana powder that isn’t too dark for my skin tone. I love that this powder is a very pale yellow and works for my pale skin. I apply it with a light hand because I don’t need need much of this powder. It works really well for brightening my under eye area and concealing my dark circles. The pan is huge and will last me a very long time. OFRA did it again and created an awesome product. It lasts all day and I just love it.

Etre Belle Cosmetics Golden Skin Roll-On Caviar Eye Gel ($45)

IMG_5146

I received this product in my February 2016 Glossybox. This is a pretty pricey eye roller, but it feels amazing. I love the roller ball because it feels so refreshing on the eyes. I didn’t notice any crazy improvement in my eyes. However, I love it because it feels so great. It is cooling and really wakes me up in the morning. I don’t think I would repurchase this particular one (it is really hard to find in the USA). However, I will definitely buy similar products because I love using it for pick me ups.
