Check out the stuff I got! 🙂 Apparently this box was special because it was a Steven and Chris box but I don’t know who Steven nor Chris are… something about CBC and I don’t watch TV unless it’s Netflix.
I was relatively pysched about what I got, because it was a good variety of hair, makeup and face products (and no perfume for once!). There seems to be a pretty big disconnect between my box and the one my sister received so I think there was a wider set of products for this month.
On the top left there’s the Rich Nourishing Cream from Blue Lagoon Skin Care. Haven’t used it yet, but it claims to be full of algae and other fun stuff like that.
That big blue blob to the right is a blending sponge from Loose Button, and I had to look that up to figure out what it was. I tend to use my fingers to put on my foundation and I use a kabuki brush for powder, but I tried this out to get into the creases of my nose and weird places like that. I guess it works? I don’t really know how to use it.
Finally, there’s the Pandora’s Makeup Box mascara which truthfully seemed like any other mascara to me — not amazing, not gloopy. Middle of the road.
Top left: Rags To Riches Colorsmash Hair Shadow, which would make me say coooool, purple hair if I were still in a demographic where it’s okay to have purple hair. I don’t think I will be using this while, say, I cover court, or interview people. I guess I could use it on the weekend? The idea is neat, I just don’t think I’ll ever use it now that I’m not a college student. I bet my nieces would love it.
Below that is the Hydrating Under Eye Primer from Smashbox, which felt kinda greasy going on. I don’t know if it did anything but I guess it will help prevent dastardly wrinkles?
And, the Quick Blow Dry from KMS California. I think I’ve mentioned that I basically never heat style my hair anymore (too much hair, too lazy) but this did what it said and made my hair dry faster when I pointed a blowdryer at it this morning. It did not moisturize it in any way though. I would have loved this stuff in high school, when I flatironed the bejeesus out of my hair no matter what.
Finally, on the left we have Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate from Lancôme which seems to be French for ‘you will always receive wrinkle cream in beauty boxes’. I’ll add it to my growing pile of tiny serums and creams.
The Silica Mud Mask from Blue Lagoon Skin Care is the one product I’m actually really excited to try! My skin has been acting very teenager-y lately and I hope it helps.
I wish I had been a recipient of the Kerastase samples! I ran out and that’s actually one product beauty boxes have taught me to enjoy. And the Moroccanoil stuff, too.
