The first box of 2018!
Here is the box design for this month. I love the bright colors and “find your happy” message.
Here are the samples in my box, minus the Verb Hydrating Mask. I was so excited to try it out that it was already in my shower at this point. Oops. I love Verb because their products work and are affordable. I also use their hydrating shampoo.
This H2O+ mask is weird to be honest. I love the idea of a soothing mask, especially after spending time in the mountains when it was 5* out. It’s supposed to help with redness and calming your skin and the sample size is quite large. However, it’s a bubbling mask and it made me feel like water was dripping off my face and also somewhat itchy. It smells like men’s aftershave as well.
I’ve received a different shade of the Arrow Lip Balm previously and didn’t love the formula because it wasn’t hydrating enough. However this color (Berry Busy) was described as a deeper berry pink, so I wanted to try it. It’s basically hot pink… The first swatch on the left is one swipe and the right is after it “adapts to your pH.”
I’ve only used this Clark’s Botanicals Age Defying Radiance Cream once, but I love the texture of it. It’s very smoothing and hydrating. It’s a good size for travel too. There’s a teeny bit of retinol in here, so be sure to layer on SPF (I’m recently obsessed with the new Supergoop Unseen).
Lastly, I received a little palette from The Beauty Crop. I have tons of eyeshadow, so I’m saving this cute trio for a giveaway. It’ll be on Instagram soon (you can find me @jeansandgems).
