Everything in the February 2018 Follow Your Heart Curated Box!
Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo ($2) A combination of French lavender and golden argan oil, this shampoo addresses damaged hair and smoothens it for frizz-free strands. It smells really wonderful, and since it has no parabens, silicones or dyes, it is suitable even for color-treated hair. Best of all, the shampoo is cruelty-free, vegan, organic, ethically sourced, and sustainably manufactured.
Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Conditioner ($2) After using the shampoo, it’s best to use the accompanying conditioner to make your hair even softer and smoother. This calming conditioner seals in moisture for smooth strands and uses fast-rinse technology, which means the formula washes out quicker so it won’t stick to your strands or make them feel heavy. Like the shampoo, it also contains argan oil which adds extra nourishment for enviably soft hair. It smells good and relaxing too!
I loved using these generous no-guilt samples!
DOUCCE Luscious Lip Stain in Steaming Red ($14) This lip stain lets you choose between a matte or shiny finish with its dual-action design. I like that it provides more options for my look! The pigmented base applies matte, and dries fast so it won’t transfer onto anything. However, the size on the lipstick wasn’t labeled, so I assume it’s half size like most other lippie deluxe samples.
Beauty Crop Wing Woman Liquid Eyeliner in Black ($12.50) Cat-eye, winged, flirty flick or just simple lined lids, this eyeliner can do the job. The deep black formula will helps define your eyes the way you want without flaking, smudging, or budging. It also has a nourishing formula which is rich in argan oil, licorice, and blackberry, so there’s no problem about color fading or irritation!
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment ($17) Sunday Riley always provides items that are multitasking! This lactic acid treatment can exfoliate dead skin cells and plump fine lines at the same time while boosting your skin’s glow factor. It has a smooth, non-oily finish that makes skin look radiant, with or without foundation. People will think it’s all natural and not because of make-up! And yes, that’s the actual value for this 5ml sample – it’s $105 full size!
This month’s Birchbox Follow Your Heart Curated Box has a total retail value of $47.50. Aside from the impressive value, the overall curation is also a win for me since they included hair care, make-up, and skin care products. I love the dual purpose lippie and the eye liner. The shampoo and conditioner combo is perfect too! Everything works really well and I’m happy to get them all for $10! Is it wrong to think about getting another box just for the Sunday Riley?!
