Everything in my June 2021 Box!
Milk Makeup Grip Primer ($7.11) To help create a perfect canvas for makeup, here’s a primer made with hydrating hemp-derived cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract which helps hold make up and keep the skin smooth.
It’s silicone-free and oil-free as well, perfect for all skin tones and for normal to dry skin types. After application, you just have to wait for at least a minute before putting other products. I love that it’s not too heavy and that it gives me a natural glow!
Hero Cosmetics Lightning Wand Dark Spot Brightening Serum ($10) Breakouts are a bummer but thankfully, there are easy-to-use dark spot correctors like this one. It contains tranexamic acid, acetyl glucosamine, and vitamin C that helps brighten dark spots and improve uneven skin tone, plus a sheer color-correcting tint!
It came in a roller bottle packaging with is very convenient as you can use it for focus application. It’s ideal to use after extracting the blemish, and it can be applied twice a day until the spot gets better!
Pūrlisse Matcha Green Tea + Lemon Detoxifying Charcoal Mask ($9.72) Here’s a mask that provides gentle exfoliation and gets rid of dull and dry skin cells, making way for a brighter complexion. Key ingredients are anti-oxidant green tea, brightening lemon, and purifying white clay.
dr Botanicals Lm Rescue Butter ($14.99) This rescue butter works as a skin treatment and as a moisturizer. It contains a blend of oils, including soothing lemongrass oil, moisturizing coconut oil, anti-inflammatory grapeseed oil, and healing sea buckthorn fruit oil. It can be applied on both the face and the body.
minimal-ish Soothing Oil ($1.80) This soothing oil helps relieve cramps. It comes in a roller bottle container for easy application. It’s made with clary sage oil which is good for water retention and hormonal imbalance, plus calming lavender oil and peppermint oil. This one is really small though, so I doubt it will last for a long time.
This subscription really knows how to make one feel beautiful inside and out! This month, I have the Clean Beauty Curated Box and it includes useful products, including a makeup primer, a dark spot corrector, a soothing oil, a detoxifying mask, and even an all-in-one rescue butter. My favorite among them is the dark spot corrector. It’s a quick and easy step that I can add to my skincare routine to help minimize blemishes. The primer and the mask are also skin-friendly. Even without the retail price of the primer, the box’s total value is already at $36.51!
