Ahava Time to Clear Purifying Mud Mask ($4.90). This mask didn’t over dry my face or make it feel as if it would crack in two while drying, and it washed off extremely easily. I loved that my skin felt clean and also smelled clean instead of like earth.

PhytoBaume Express Conditioner ($9) This conditioner is thick and creamy without a strong scent. I most likely won’t use it as I don’t have color-treated hair, but it might be good enough reason to change that.

Euphoria by Calvin Klein ($1) I love the woodsy scent that could easily be worn by a man or woman. Calvin Klein scents are wonderful in my opinion because of the fresh, clean and subtle overtones.

Skin & Co Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate ($16.83) A dream eye cream in a tube! It goes on smooth without any greasy residue. A little bit goes a very long way. Another great thing is it’s not tested on animals.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Color Correcting (CC) Cream in Natural Glow ($3.90). I love that this product is certified organic and an SPF 30 sunscreen. I only wish that I could have chosen my color as the natural glow was too light for my skin tone.

Marvis Cinnamon Mint Toothpaste ($1.49). This was also in the last Amazon Luxury Box I received, the only product to be repeated. I loved the idea of cinnamon toothpaste but was sad to feel like I was brushing my teeth with Altoids. I had to re-brush my teeth for the minty fresh feel that I love.

MDSolarSciences Daily Anti-Aging Moisturizer ($12.50). SPF 30 in a daily moisturizer, that goes on thin enough to not make my powder foundation clump is wonderful. I love the sunscreen scent that reminds me of childhood days by the lake. I’m looking forward to giving this product a run for it’s money come summer in Arizona.

Proraso Aftershave Balm ($2.35). This aftershave smells like Eucalyptus and menthol, in only the best ways. I used it after shaving my legs and didn’t experience any razor burn. I think it also helped my legs stay smoother longer, I call that I win. I also love that you can purchase this product at so many local retailers.

Agave Healing Oil Treatment ($1.20). It smells like a fruity cocktail in the most delicious way. I threw this on my locks and sat down for a 20 minute reading session, took a shower and had complete hair transformation, my hair is now feeling smoother and less frizzy.

img_0903

NuFace Prep-N-Glow Cloths ($1.20). Holy amazingness in a hand held size. This cloth exfoliates, cleanses and hydrates in just a few swift swipes. It’s double-sided with exfoliating beads on one side and gentle cleansing on the other side. I can’t wait to purchase these for my pre-teen’s stocking, what  a simple way to keep up with a great skin care regime.

Clean Cashmere ($1) Slightly sweet scented and completely clean and refreshing, I know a few ladies who will love this and might see it under the Christmas tree.

img_0909

Calvin Klein Eternity for Men ($1.60). In the past, I haven’t really liked this scent but this time around I was pleasantly surprised by the manly scent. I wonder if I can get my husband to start wearing it.

img_0911

Julep Nedra Nail Polish ($14). I get absolutely giddy when it comes to nail polish, but over the moon when it comes to Julep polish. The color is always rich and long lasting. I love that normally it’s one coat and you’re out the door. If I could replace all my polishes with Julep I would but it might get a tad expensive, I only have 90 to replace.

img_0915

John Varvatos ($1.38). This cologne is a little too powdery for my taste and my husband’s. I do like that it gets a little woodsy as it wears.

img_0917

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford Skin Renewing Peel ($6.99). 5-10 minutes to a refreshed face, that felt healthy and vibrant.

img_0918

Bliss Triple Oxygen Moisture Cream ($6.40). I know they say a good moisturizer can make all the difference in keeping wrinkles and aging to a minimum but I didn’t believe it until I used this one. It went on light and without using an extreme amount. I loved that my combination oily skin didn’t get even greasier over night. I will be splurging for the 1.7fl oz for a whopping $64.

img_0921

Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel ($0.92). Oil free with no parabens, this gel moisturizes for up to 48 hours. I didn’t like the gel feel even though it wasn’t sticky or heavy.

img_0925

Obliphica Professional Seaberry Hair Serum ($2.12). So easy to use, effective in getting those fly a ways to stay put and smells great. I’m super excited to use this come swim season when my hair is a little bit more dry and coarse.

img_0927

Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener ($6.72). This primer was awesome! Went on like a dream and smoothed out all my slight wrinkles all while making my makeup look flawless.

img_0930

Kiss those smile and laugh lines away with La Roche-Posay Anti-Ageing Concentrate ($4.25). Out of all the products in this box I will admit this is my favorite. I can’t wait to see what kind of results will be seen in the next 30 days.

Amazon has hit a home run, 20 items for $19.99 and you get a credit for $19.99 to spend on your next box. This is a no brainer! I was overly pleased with the quality of items in this box and when they say luxury they aren’t lying. I have found some great new additions for my beauty regime. I will say that I wish the hair product was more geared toward non-color treated hair but I might be one of the few that has never colored my hair. I love Amazon and this Prime perk has just made my love that much stronger. The total value was about $99!
