Oh Look Bag, why!? You were so promising and I wanted to love you, but you just keep dropping the ball! December's bag was really lackluster and disappointing. I was optimistic since November's bag was a step in the right direction. So for a minute I regained faith in them, I get my December bag
What the hell man!? First off, Rather than the pink envelope it usually comes in I got a boring white envelope. Was it really that difficult to keep up with appearances? Then on top of that I looked through the Makeuptalk forum and found that one of the items is almost expired. Here's what I got:
I wasn't immediately turned off, mind you. I was like eh, but the eyeshadow and the glitter seem nice. Then I saw the tea light candles and I was like
This is a beauty subscription, and I can buy tea lights anytime for dirt cheap. Why include something completely irrelevant to beauty? This is a subscription service that apparently offers luxury products to sample, sooooooo.....yeah......
Anyways, on to the review.
Befine Food Skin Care Exfoliating Cleanser ($24.00 for full size)
I wasn't sure I should even try this. I had heard that Befine has a really bad history of giving out expired samples, so it left me conflicted. I couldn't find a batch code on this packet so I tried it and hoped for the best. This exfoliator has brown sugar, almonds and oats. It smelled ok, it didn't smell old but it smelled different. My skin wasn't irritated afterwards so I guess that's a good sign. This is supposed to be a single serve packet, but I actually got two uses out of it since it lathers very well and spreads easily. This cleanser left my face feeling very clean and soft, and I have to say I found this to exfoliate a little better than my St. Ives. I will be purchasing a full size bottle of this for sure, this may have been the only thing I genuinely enjoyed in this bag.
LA Splash Nail Art Glitter, Hazardous ($4.99)
This was ok, it's just some red nail glitter. I could always use some more for my designs. At least I didn't have to worry about expiration.
