Everything in my box!

Loba Mane Transformative Mask ($10) I have short, fine hair that I blow dry and curl daily, and I indulge in a weekly deep treatment every Sunday morning.

Coconut, buriti, and tucuma oils join avocado and argan to help all kinds of damaged hair, whether it’s damaged by coloring, over-processing, or just daily wear-and-tear.

I applied this thick cream after shampooing and went on with the rest of my shower. I rinsed (it says to wait 5 minutes) and when my hair was dried it felt like silk. The cream smells amazing – it reminds me of pineapple!

Evelyn Iona Green Tea Primer ($29.50) I’m not in the habit of using primers but gave this one a try. Maybe I didn’t shake it well enough but although my makeup went on smoothly, I did notice some of my makeup and/or primer coming off in chunks. This goes beyond pilling, but overall the look was ok.

It looks like there is a new version coming out soon – check out this notice from the Evelyn Iona website:

AS OF AUG 29TH, 2017 IN AN EFFORT TO CONTINUE TO BE GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN, PLANET AND COMMUNITY OUR FORMULA WILL BE CHANGING TO NO LONGER INCLUDE PEG-120, DIMETHICONE, OR CYCLOPENTASILOXANE IN EARLY 2018.

Z Skin Cosmetics Mineral Highlight Powder ($17.95) I have tried a few items from Z Skin Cosmetics and sadly I am just not a fan. This product continued that trend.

Z Skin claims that they use “diamond minerals” to add sparkle. “Diamond” isn’t listed in the ingredients, although mica is on there. Diamond powder is generally used as a micro-exfoliator and the thought of getting that in my eyes sounds scary! The sifter had large holes and so much product was in the top that it spilled when I opened it up.

Here it is swatched on my arm. Nothing too sparkly here. I tried applying it dry to my eyes but it didn’t go on well. I tried applying it with a wet eye brush but it just clumped, like when you mix flour and water together, and didn’t spread smoothly. Finally, I tried dusting it over my nose and it was more like a pink opaque finishing powder, no shine at all. Into the trash. Bummer.

Kurandza Handmade Bracelet ($25, patterns vary) There was a pretty bangle bracelet in this month’s box and I love that Kurandza uses the proceeds to educate young women in Mozambique!

It’s kind of hard to tell from the picture but the pink accents on this bracelet are glittery!

Unfortunately, the bracelet didn’t fit over my hand!

It looks lovely on my daughter, who wears a much smaller size than me. I took it to work and asked several women of varying dress sizes if it would fit over their hand and the results were surprising. It didn’t matter if you were plus sized or skinny, bone size seemed to be the thing that mattered but in most cases it was a tight fit for almost everyone.

I thought the December Kloverbox had a nice variety of products, even if they weren’t my particular favorites. The deep conditioner was my favorite product this month, and sadly the highlighter will end up in the trash. December’s box had a value of $82.45, over 3 times the price paid for the box! Kloverbox is usually one of my favorite subscriptions and I look forward to seeing what will be in the next box!
