I wanted to post a review when I received last month's box, but there was an issue with my box coming to me damaged. On the plus side their customer service is great! I emailed them and they sent me a replacement for the damaged product in last month's box, so it came to me this month.

This month I was very impressed with what I received. Initially I wasn't happy
with the samples available when my window first opened, so I waited a day or so
and retook my quiz a few times to change what I could possibly get. In this
months box I received a sample of Besame Cosmetics Crimson Cream Rouge,
Youngblood Mineral Primer, Fiafani Divine Hydration Moisturizer, Juicy Jewel eau
de Parfum, Atzen Lip and Eye Emulsion, Delizioso Skincare Mangosteen and Acai
Facial Cream, and Grand Central Beauty Smart Skin Perfecting Mask.
Besame Cosmetics Crimson Cream Rouge (full size $22.00)
|What a nice color, soft and playful :)|
Youngblood Mineral Primer (full size $41.00)
This primer is a gel, making it very light on the skin. Since I received a small sample I only used a bit to feel its texture, it is sleek but not oily. It felt nice on my skin. I'm not sure I will buy a full size of this but it was nice to try.
Fiafani Divine Hydration Moisturizer (full size $38.50)
This moisturizer is supposed to help fight aging while moisturizing skin. I just sampled it, so I cannot say for certain whether this is an effective product. It smells nice, isn't heavy, and felt nice on my skin, but I have yet to see a difference as of yet.
Juicy Jewel eau de Parfum (full size $55.00)
I love this perfume! I swear I was able to smell it as soon as I opened the box! (which at first I thought to be a bad thing) After realizing that the bottle didn't break, I immediately gave my wrist a spritz. I embraced the sophisticated yet light floral notes and was immediately sold on this product. I am unsure whether I wish to pay $55.00 for it for now, so I will hold on to this sample for dear life until I can either afford it or find it for a better price!
Atzen Lip and Eye Emulsion (full size $75.00)
This is supposed to help reduce dark circles around eyes as well as signs of aging and sun damage on eyes and lips. I used a bit under my left eye to see the difference and i have to say it did help a bit. I put it on before bed, and when I woke up I was able to see a change in the dark color under my left eye compared to my right. It melted into my skin quickly which I thought was nice, it didn't stay on top of my skin like other eye creams I've tried. I will continue to use this sample to see if there is a significant difference in the darkness of the circles under my eyes!
Delizioso Skincare Mangosteen and Acai Facial Cream (full size $58.00)
This cream is an anti-aging fighter and is loaded with antioxidants to nourish skin! This sample looked very promising so I couldn't wait to try it!
This cream has a whipped appearance, but it's thick, like cake icing. It has little blue beads in it that burst when you put in on your face. It smells very yummy! It melted on my face, and didn't feel oily. The price for the full sized one is a little steep, but it seems like it would last a really long time! So I may consider buying this, I enjoyed the experience!
Grand Central Beauty Smart Skin Perfecting Mask ($75.00 for 4 mask systems)
Okay, so this was the sample that I received damaged. I was very excited to try it and review it last month, but when I saw all the powder fall out of the box I was so upset I didn't bother to review the others. Luckily The Beauty Army team has great customer service and I heard from them the very next day after letting them know what happened!
So this was definitely different from what I'm used to! It was kind of fun doing the prep work! Basically you have to mix everything up and generously apply it to your face. The set comes with a mixing bowl, which was the clear container this sample came in. (I almost threw it out!) The process is really simple, you take the mask powder capsule, the vial of booster serum, and a capsule of cold tap water and mix it together in the bowl. (in that order!) When its ready for application it's going to look like this:
It basically becomes a putty like substance. But you gotta work fast! After a little while the mix starts to harden and become almost like latex! Make sure to apply generously and keep away from hair and eyes!
|I felt like I was wearing horror movie skin!|
4 masks for 75 dollars might be a bit pricey, but I really liked the results! Maybe I will purchase this in the future, but I am very glad I got to treat my skin to a nice peel for way less!
