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: 

Beautycounter Nourishing Cleansing Balm ($50)

IMG_4878

I received this product in my February 2016 PopSugar Must Have Box. I love how elegantly packaged the product is. It comes with a little spatula for scooping the product out and a nice muslin cloth for removing the product. You apply it to dry skin and it breaks your makeup down. You then wet the muslin cloth with hot water to wipe away all the dirt and makeup. It really works amazing. All my makeup is removed so easily and I don’t have to scrub hard at all. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all or strip my skin of moisture. My face is left clean and soft. I really can’t say enough good things about this cleansing balm. I really wish it wasn’t $50! If I find a great sale on it, I will definitely be picking up more!

Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray ($24)

I received this (sample) in my February 2016 Featured Birchbox. I love Amika packaging so much! The print is just so bright and cheery. I was actually surprised at how much I like this blowout spray. It smells really nice (as all Amika products do). It was so easy to use and spray into my hair (the sprayer sprays a very fine mist that helps get in those small spaces). It really did add a bunch of volume to my hair and it didn’t weight my hair down at all. It also didn’t make my hair feel crunchy which I loved. I will definitely use this product the next time I blow dry my hair. I really do like it.

Danielle Creations Gold-Plated Eyelash Curler ($9.99)

I received this product in my February 2016 Beautyfix Box. This is actually a fairly nice eyelash curler. I don’t think I would run out and buy it immediately. However, if you are in the market for a decent eyelash curler…then look no further. I love the gold color and I really did curl my lashes. It also didn’t pull at them which was nice. My curl lasted all day and I really don’t have anything negative to say. I will continue using this lash curler and I love how classy it looks. The price is right so I may buy it again (if I ever really need to).

Seraphine Vegan Berry Tint ($18)

I received this product in my February 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. This lip color is so vibrant and gorgeous. I love how you don’t need much of this product at all. It is just such a beautiful red shade that really brightens your teeth. It is fairly easy to use as long as you take your time. It lasts forever on the lips because it is a very matte formula. This product is very drying (aka it is very matte). I would definitely wear a balm underneath if you don’t like the dry feel. I was so impressed with the formula and how good it looks on the lips. I will definitely continue using this product. I just really like the formula (it didn’t get all over my teeth).

Beauty For Real Blush in Glow Stick ($24)

I received this product in my February 2016 Boxycharm Box. I was so excited about this product because it is so portable. However, it is not a good shade for me. The blush is okay and looks nice on my cheeks. I will continue to use the blush. However, the highlight is just way too dark for my skin tone. It just doesn’t look right on my pale skin. I was really hoping the highlight would work because it is gorgeous. However for tan skinned girls, this will look amazing. I love the smell of the product because it smells like vanilla frosting. It totally makes me want a cupcake right now!

Shray Ms. Amazing Facial Mask ($12)

IMG_5092IMG_5497

I received this product in my February 2016 Boxycharm Box. This sheet mask was so much fun! I love the packaging. It was split down the middle which I never seen in a sheet mask. I think the split was suppose to make it easy to apply. However, I found it was a bit more time consuming. I love that the sheet mask was very thin so it stuck to the face very easily. The fit was great. I also like the formula because it was very hydrating. You only have to wear this sheet mask for 10 minutes. Therefore, it is a great on the go mask. My skin felt hydrated and radiant after using. It was a bit sticky, but it was hydrated. I don’t think I would repurchase because it is a bit pricey for a single sheet. However, I did enjoy it.
