Because this beauty box, in particular, is awesome…
Beauty boxes are pretty much everywhere these days, which is why I’m particularly skeptical about most of them and, honestly, most of the time I’m just not that impressed. Oh! A perfume sample?! The same one I can get at a department store for free?! WOW, thanks!
No thank you.
I was sent REDBOOK’s Beauty Box a few weeks ago and it’s one of my favorites BY FAR. The products are full-size and AWESOME and you definitely get a good amount of bang for your buck. Here’s what’s inside the latest REDBOOK Beauty Box:
Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant: I LOOOVE that this product, in particular, is actually travel sized because I constantly run out of these for quick weekend trips or even just for use after I work out. This version is a clear gel and provides 4X the stress sweat protection.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure: As you can see, I was pretty excited to test the coral-y color (Poof! Be-gonia) and the flat brush actually makes application easier than normal. After I applied the polish, I used the 3D Gel Shine Top Coat (key for a great mani) and was impressed at how it transformed the polish into a gel-like shine. This collection (polish and top coat combo) actually has 7 benefits: base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant and gel-shine.
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant: This completely gentle leave-on exfoliant quickly unclogs pores, diminishes wrinkles and improves skin tone…can’t beat that. It’s for all skin types, but it helps specifically with common skin conditions like acne, rosacea, Keratosis Pilaris (KP) and enlarged pores. I have to say, my skin looked extra fab after I applied the clear liquid for the first time.
Vaseline Serum Advanced Relief: I’m not a huge body lotion kind of girl but I was SUPER impressed with this version from Vaseline. For one, it smells fantastic- the soft scent of rose and amber, specifically, blended with vanilla. It was also very hydrating and my skin felt great all day after I used it on my arms and elbows.
