I got the box earlier in the week but was just lazy on reviewing it. Oops. The theme for this month was Beauty School.
The Schick Hydro Silk Razor worked fine, but it wasn’t any better or worse than the Schick Quatro I already use. But hey, razors are expensive so I’ll glad accept it.
The stila smudge stick waterproof eyeliner was my favorite part of the box. There were a variety of colors and I ended up getting Oscar Fish, which is a brown — perfect since I normally use brown liner. It works great. I took advantage of the smudge and used it kind of as an eyeshadow. The unfortunate part is that it’s $20 — and I can’t validate spending that much when Sephora brand liners are a fraction of that.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. It’s supposedly big in Japan, but I felt oily afterwards. It really softened my cuticles though and I would probably use for that.
My roommate was there when I opened the box and he pointed out the Caldrea Hand Soap as one of his favorites. I got the mint scent and it’s very light and refreshing. According to the site it’s eco-friendly, which I know a lot of people are into now.
The last item in the box was Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur perfume (say that five times fast). Now I’m not a perfume fan at all, but I really enjoyed the scent. It was subtly floral and not overwhelming at all.
It came with a little booklet rightly named “Beauty School” that had some tips and tricks in it. What brushes to use when, how to read a label, shaving tips, and make-up fixes. It’s a cute little addition, though it was nothing new to me.
Check back next month for September’s box!
