Christmas Card Exchange + November 2017 GoodieBox

I got this idea from Lise, and I wanted to do a Christmas card exchange with my blogger friends!

If you would like to receive a card or you would like to do an exchange where we send each other cards, you can email me at talesofbelle@yahoo.com or use the Contact Form on my blog. Also, I live in Denmark, and I do not mind sending cards to the US, UK, or any other countries! Now onto the GoodieBox unboxing!


The theme for the November GoodieBox was In the Nude. GoodieBox is a Danish beauty subscription box, so the boxes can only be shipped to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. Each box costs 169 kr / $27 a month and contains 5-7 items worth over 500 kr / $80.

I received 6 items in this box and 4 were full-sized. The skin care products can help create the best base for makeup while the makeup products can be used to highlight your natural beauty and create a no makeup makeup look.

 

Glossworks Nail Polish in Tanfastic Nude (Full-Size): Tanfastic Nude is neutral mauve shade with a high gloss finish. The nail polish dries quickly, and it is durable. The polish is also vegan and free of the 9 most common chemicals found in nail polish. I think this shade is a pretty color, but I rarely wear nail polish, so I will most likely gift this to my mother. However, Glossworks is cruelty-free.

110 kr / $18

 

Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit (Full-Size): Sleek Makeup is a UK brand, and the contour kit contains a contour and highlighting powder. The contour powder is a light brown shade with a matte finish, and the highlighting powder is a champagne shade with a shimmer finish. Both shades are easy to apply and blend, and they can be used together or separately. I am not that big of a fan of contouring and highlighting, but I think it will work well with the Sleek Makeup i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Au Naturel that I received in my February 2017 GoodieBox. Also, Sleek Makeup is cruelty-free.

85 kr / $14

Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Large Angled Face Brush 504 (Full-Size): Luxie Beauty is an American brand, and this synthetic brush has an angle design that is ideal to use on the cheeks. The brush can be used with the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit or other bronzers, highlighters, and blushes. I received the Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Detail Round Blender Makeup Brush 120 in my February 2017 Goodiebox, and I love using it because it is such good quality. I am excited to use this brush, and I hope it will have the same quality. Also, Luxie Beauty is vegan and cruelty-free.

119 kr / $19

 

Mesauda Milano Liquid Silk Foundation in Natural Rose 201 (Full-Size): Mesauda Milano is an Italian brand, and I received either the BB Cream, Radiant Skin Foundation, Nude Skin Foundation, or the Liquid Silk Foundation. The Liquid Silk Foundation is a liquid foundation that dries to a matte finish. The foundation contains SPF 30, and it has buildable coverage to camouflage imperfections. The foundation is also long-lasting and can be used by all skin types. I normally use liquid foundations when I wear makeup, so I am definitely looking forward to trying this one out. Also, Mesauda Milano is cruelty-free.

 

120 kr / $19

 

Ole Henriksen Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub: Ole Henriksen is a Danish/American brand, and this scrub exfoliates the skin to remove dead skin cells. The scrub also controls oil and reduces the appearance of pores. The scrub contains glycolic acid and volcanic sand that has a warming effect on the skin, and the scrub leaves the skin soft and refreshed. I received both the Ole Henriksen Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator and the Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser in my August 2017 GoodieBox. I have been waiting to finish my current cleanser to try them out, so I will also start using this scrub with those products. Ole Henriksen is cruelty-free.

255 kr / $41 for 89 g

 

Coffee & Scrub Coffee & Coconut Scrub: Coffee & Scrub is a Danish brand, and this scrub is made from roasted coffee beans. The scrub has a coconut scent, and it is used in the bath or shower. The scrub exfoliates and softens the skin while reducing irritation. I do not like coconut scented products, and I am already using the Frank Body Coffee Scrub, so I will mostly likely gift this to my mother. However, I like that the scrub is 100% natural and is not tested on animals.

249 kr / $40 for 200 g

 

Overall, this month’s GoodieBox contained a nice variety of skin care and makeup products, but I do not like coconut scents or wear nail polish. However, I will use the 4 other products. The box also had a value of 638 kr / $102.
