Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! I had a great birthday even though I did not do much on Tuesday, but I have been celebrating my birthday this weekend! Since I have not had time to share the GoodieBox from August, I wanted to do that now.
The theme for August’s box was 4 Elements, and I received the Earth box. GoodieBox is a Danish beauty subscription box, so the boxes can only be shipped to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. There is a GoodieBox subscription for the Netherlands, but the monthly boxes are different. Each box costs 169 kr / $26 a month and contains 5-7 items worth over 550 kr / $85. In this box I received 6 products, and 4 were full-size.
Also, the 4 Elements boxes all had the same products, but the Fire, Water, and Air boxes included different shades of the lip balm and eyeshadow.
Inca Oil Filler Mask: Inca Oil is a collection from the Italian brand TMT, and as the name suggests the hair mask contains Inca oil. The mask softens the hair while making it stronger and easier to untangle. The mask is applied to wet hair and after 10-15 minutes it is rinsed out. I have not used a hair mask in a while, so I am looking forward to trying this one. Also, TMT/Inca Oil does not test on animals.
229 kr / $35 for 300 ml
LASplash Hydro Liquid Eyeshadow in Opulent (Full Size): LASplash is an American brand, and Opulent is a natural gold shade. The liquid eyeshadow can be applied with the applicator, your fingers, or a beauty blender. I do not have any liquid eyeshadow, and I think the gold shade is gorgeous, so I am looking forward to trying it out. LASplash is also cruelty-free.
99 kr / $15
Evolve Beauty Satin Leg Gloss (Full Size): Evolve Beauty is an English brand, and the leg gloss is for normal to dry skin. The gloss is sprayed on the legs to add shine, and the gloss can also be used on the face and hair. I have received the Evolve Beauty Hyaluronic Serum in my May 2018 GoodieBox, and I am just now starting to try it out. It is nice to receive another product from Evolve Beauty, but I do not see the appeal in having shiny legs. However, Evolve Beauty is vegan and cruelty-free.
85 kr / $13
Naobay Orange Juice Foot Cream (Full Size): Naobay is a Spanish brand, and the foot cream is orange-scented. The cream absorbs quickly, and it contains shea butter, aloe vera, orange, and tea tree oil that soften and smooth the feet. The foot cream is also natural, and Naobay is cruelty-free. I have previously received several products including the Naobay Equilibria Face Mist Toner in my April 2018 GoodieBox, the Naobay Vitality & Shine Shampoo in my July 2017 GoodieBox, and the Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer in September 2016 GoodieBox, and I am looking forward to trying their foot cream now! However, when I received the foot cream the packaging was dirty and I could not rinse off the stain. I do not know what is on the packaging, which is a little off-putting.
120 kr / $18.50
Teeez Cosmetics Objects of Affection Lip Balm in Vanilla Sky (Full Size): Teeez is a Dutch brand, and Vanilla Sky is a semi-sheer pink shade. The lip balm moisturizes and softens the lips, and it is not sticky. I have received a couple of Teeez products including the Teeez Spectrum of Stars Eyeshadow in Lilac Glaze in my December 2017 GoodieBox and the Teeez Cosmetics Be Smooth Face Powder in 301 Feather Light in my December 2016 GoodieBox. I have been wearing lip balms instead of lipsticks lately, so I am excited to try this balm from Teeez. I also like that the lip balm includes a mirror and Teeez is cruelty-free.
125 kr / $19
Manna Kadar Blossom Floral Compact: Manna Kadar is an American brand, and the compact has good pigment. The compact can be used as a blush, highlighter, and eye shadow. The shades are supposed to be able to be used separately or together, but the pan size is too small and the floral design prevents separate use. I have previously received the Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain in Siren in my February 2018 GoodieBox, the Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 in my April 2017 GoodieBox, and the Manna Kadar Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo in my September 2016 GoodieBox. I like the idea of multi-functional products, but in my experience the Manna Kadar products have only been good for one purpose and lacking in the other purposes. Since I cannot use the shades separately, I will only use the compact as a blush and maybe as an eyeshadow. Also, Manna Kadar is cruelty-free.
128 kr / $20
Overall, August’s box was a good box and I like the variety of makeup, skin care, and hair care products. I am looking forward to trying the LASplash Hydro Liquid Eyeshadow and the Inca Oil Filler Mask the most. The box also had a value of 511 kr / $79, which is a little below the normal value of the products, but it is still a good buy considering I paid 169 kr / $26.
Have you tried any products from these brands?
