Everything in the box!

Nexxus Humectress Hair Mask ($3.99) Suited for normal to dry hair, this treatment is rich in glycerine that deeply rehydrates by binding moisture within your hair. All you have to do is massage the hair mask on wet hair, comb through, and leave for 3-5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. It makes your hair fuller and shinier without the sticky residue! I just needed a little for my fine hair but it definitely didn’t weigh it down or make it greasy.

Pretty Animalz Tiger Sheet Mask ($3.99) I love sheet masks! This one is enriched with extracts that will help in making the skin nourished and hydrated, including soybean, mushroom and witch hazel water. It is packed with lots of essence and smelled wonderful too, but what I really liked about this mask is the smooth and dewy glow it gave my skin. Also, the tiger design on the mask is super cute!

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Polish ($0.25) This exfoliating body cream has a whipped texture and a nice coverage. I like its gentle formula that kept my skin smooth and hydrated throughout the day!

The polish also has an indulgent tropical ricey scent, thanks to crushed macadamia and rice milk. It is ideally used during shower or bath and before using soap or body wash. The particles are fine, so it’s more like a polish than a scrub (think much smaller than sugar scrub, larger than microdermabrasion scrubs!).

CoverGirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick – Evan-gel-ical ($5.99) Also included in the box is this liquid lipstick with a bright pink shade. It feels lightweight on the lips and stays on for quite a long time, not to mention the satin finish that puts a touch of glam to an overall look.

It also comes with a soft touch precision applicator that easily glides and covers the lips.

Here’s the swatch! It’s so rich, creamy and well-pigmented!

Vichy Mineral 89 Face Moisturizer ($1.69) I’m always on the lookout for moisturizers that actually provide hydration to the skin but doesn’t clog pores. This one is just perfect as it’s lightweight and fast absorbing. Aside from the instant moisture it brings, it also promises to make the skin more resistant to visible signs of aging. Ingredients include hyaluronic acid and 89% Vichy mineralizing thermal water. It’s fragrance-free and paraben-free too!

Mrs. Meyer’s Body Wash – Lavender ($1) This body wash is so calming! It is packed with lavender, aloe vera gel, and various essential oils including flax seed. The formula cleanses your whole body, keeps it moisturized, and leaves your skin with a fresh fragrance, so I really couldn’t ask for more. The lavender scent is calming and I love Mrs. Meyer’s!

OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo ($1.33) Last but not the least is a collagen shampoo with vitamin B7 and hydrolyzed wheat proteins. I’m looking forward to see how it will affect my hair, since it promises to volumize even the skinniest strands into fuller and more abundant looking locks. I tried it with the mask above so it didn’t get super fluffy but I liked the feel and results, and the really light scent. Plus, it’s a full travel size at 3 ounces.

I’m happy getting some full-sized products from this month’s box and it had a surprisingly high value of about $18 this month – much better than in previous months! And as I went through all the items I kept on oohing and aahing – there were actually multiple new things for me to try, which is hard to do! I think my favorite item about the box this month is that it has a whole regimen – from washing your hair to polishing and washing up in the shower, to a post shower mask, lasting hydration, and a pop of color!
