I am in Denmark now! The flight was exhausting, but hopefully, today will be relaxing.
I know I am a little late on posting this, but I have been wanting to try Sephora’s subscription box, and I finally got off their waitlist for July.
The items came in a cute little bag that had images of a popsicle and kiss, which is perfect for the summer. These are the 7 items I received:
Benefit Cosmetics Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer: The bronzer is lightweight, buildable, and gives the skin a sunkissed glow. I am uncertain about using a liquid bronzer, but I will give it a go. However, Benefit is not cruelty-free.
$28 for Sephora (no longer available)
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser: The cleanser is good for normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin types, and it removes oil, makeup, and dirt from the face. The cleanser also calms redness and reduces dryness. I am definitely looking forward to trying this cleanser especially since I have oily and sensitive skin. Also, First Aid Beauty does not test on animals.
$20 for 142 g at Sephora
beautyblender Blotterazzi: The blotterazzi is used instead of blotting paper to absorb oil while leaving makeup intact. I have looked at getting the original beautyblender, but I am unsure about using this sponge because I normally do not use blotting papers. However, beautyblender is cruelty-free.
$20 at Sephora (no longer available)
Beautyblender Liquid Blendercleanser: The cleanser removes residue from both sponges and brushes. After I try out the blotterazzi, I will be able to see how well this cleanser works. Beautyblender is cruelty-free.
$18 for 150 ml at Sephora
NEST Citrine Eau de Parfum Spray: The perfume is a mix of lotus flower and freesia with citrus and precious woods. The perfume has a nice floral scent that is good for everyday use, but I would not purchase this perfume for myself. Nest does not test on animals.
$68 for 50 ml at Sephora
Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer: The primer smooths and perfects skin while covering fine lines and pores. The primer reminds me of the NYX Studio Perfect Primer I use, so I am interested in seeing how this primer compares. However, unlike NYX, Smashbox is not cruelty-free.
$36 for 30 ml at Sephora
Ouai Wave Spray: The spray gives hair the natural beach wave look without drying the hair. I received a sea salt in my last Birchbox, so I am looking forward to seeing what spray gives me the best beachy look. Ouai is cruelty-free.
$26 for 150 ml at Sephora
Overall, I like the variety of items I received, and I can see myself using most of them. However, I have to cancel my subscription already because I am moving out of the country.
