I’m so far behind with my beauty box reviews (I’ve already received May’s Glymm!) and I nearly skipped this one. I thought I should have though for when I go back and compare month to month. So let’s crack on with it.
1. Free Your Mane Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
Sample size: 7.4 mL each
Full size: 300 mL ($16)
These kind of samples are a bit lame to me because you could get them in a magazine. However, I like that it is from a brand I don’t know. I also like that it’s sulfate, paraben and phalate free. I can’t see anything that confirms that its cruelty-free.
2. Mai Couture Social Gloss
Full size!! ($28)
The colour I received was Sake Sunrise. It’s a nude gloss and to be honest, I think it’s a little to dark for me. It kind of washes me out. I’ll try it in a couple of weeks when I’ve freckled a bit and see if that makes a difference. Love that it’s a full size product! I can’t find out if they’re cruelty-free.
3. $100 Gift Certificate to NuMe!
This is AWESOME!! I’m definitely going to use this. Even though I’ll have to pay a bit to get a hair straightener or curling rod, it’d still be less than I’d pay at Sally’s Beauty Supply. Very excited. I just can’t decide what to get.
4. Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine
Sample size: unsure, it’s the typical perfume sample size
Full size: 30 mL ($60) and 200 mL ($165)
I was a little disappointed with this at first but when I saw the full size price I understood why the sample was so small. Plus, it’s from a company that I don’t know much about. I love the scent. It smells exactly like oranges. It’s a perfect light scent for spring although I’d be nervous to wear it when the wasps and mosquitos are out! No clue on its cruelty-free status.
5. Lucia Soap No. 6 (Wild Ginger & F resh Fig)
Sample size: 25g
Full size: Package of 8 soaps ($17.50)
This is a really fancy soap if 8 of them costs $17.50! I have to say that when I popped this soap out of the box, it didn’t feel like a regular bar of soap. It’s very creamy and made with 100% Organic Shea Butter. I haven’t tried it out yet, I feel like I have to keep it for best! lol. I checked out the website and there are a lot of options in this scent so I’m curious to see what else they have to offer. Cruelty-free.
Overall: Great box! Still really impressed with the brands that are included in Glymm. I’m also super excited about the gift certificates. If you know anything about the cruelty-free status of the brands I’m unsure of please let me know.
