Today I will be reviewing the June Allure/Sample Society Subscription box as well as the St. Tropez Self Tan Express.
For 15.00 per month you will receive a box containing both deluxe and full sized makeup and beauty products. (In addition you will receive a unique code each month to snag 10.00 off of a 50.00 purchase at BeautyBar.com) Nice!!!
Product List and Description:
1.) St. Tropez Self Tan Express – A totally customizable, tinted self tanning foam. It allows you to shower in as little as one hour after applying! The tan you wish to achieve depends on the amount of time you keep the product on before showering. Their guide states a light even tan after 1 hour, darker after two and after 3 hours it has reached its darkening potential. Therefore you shower it off when you achieve your desired level of color. I took the liberty of trying it out for you and photographing my skin color at each time increment! See Below:
Not too bad?! I like the color, not too orangey. I expected a bit darker but I do think that I looked darker in person than the skin closeups portray -my upper body and arms which were much darker already looked significantly darker than my legs. I think this picture gives you a pretty good idea though of the color development cycle! The self tan smell was slight and unnoticeable to me after showering…thats a huge plus. I did use a mitt for application. I would definitely recommend this product for those who like to self tan at home.
2.) eSalon https://www.esalon.com/ – Perfect Ending Leave in Conditioner: a leave in treatment good for color treated hair to restore hair of shine and moisture with smoothing and detangling properties. P.S. – Check out their site for info on their awesome at home coloring service!
3.) E.L.F Studio http://www.eyeslipsface.com/ -Small Stipple Brush – Synthetic makeup brush for cream and liquid makeup. Tap on your product with this brush and then swirl to blend. I have several E.L.F Studio brushes and they are pretty good brushes for how very inexpensive they are. I was happy to receive this one b/c I do not own a brush of this type in such a small size. I think it will be great for cream contouring kits.
4.) Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couturehttp://www.laurenbbeauty.com/-color:Polo Lounge Punch I love this brand and was excited to get another color. It’s kind of a raspberry shade and their bottles are so cute. The formula is great and is 5 free, cruelty free and Vegan as well. Their site is too cute, check out their products!
5.) Cotz Face Sunscreen SPF 40 http://www.cotzskincare.com/ in shade: Natural skin tone-Shine Minimizing, long lasting sun protection that you can wear under makeup without issue. It’s lightly tinted and is a bit powdery when dry, no detectable scent.
6.) Completely Bare wax strips for the Face, Bikini and Body-completely bare Pre-waxed hair removal strips that you warm with your hands.
I loved this box! What do you think?
Until next time…
