Review of the Winter 2017 Beautycon Box

Hello hello, and welcome back! Today I am sharing the winter Beautycon Box and I am so excited to tell you what I think. This is my second Beautycon box ever and I absolutely love it. I think this box is one that is really worth the money. If you don’t already know, the Beautycon box is a seasonal box (meaning it comes four times a year) and it costs $29/ month or $99/ year. Each season, the box is curated by a beauty guru. This season, Dolce Candy put together the box and they’re awesome. Plus, if you are a new subscriber you get a free bonus box with your first Beautycon box! AND all subscribers get 20% off + free shipping from the Beautycon ShopNow let’s get into the fun stuff… what is in the box –

ALI & JAY – $50 Gift Card I loved seeing this in the box! I love that they are giving such a good chunk of money to spend, too. You have to spend at least $100 to get the $50, though. I wish it was a true gift card, rather than a coupon type gift card. But, I can’t wait to go shop around their website!

Artist Couture – Illuminating Diamond Glow Powder This stuff is so gorgeous! It shimmers and sparkles, in the most beautiful shade of champagne. Although it is called glow powder, I think it’s a eyeshadow rather than a highlighter. I suppose it could be used as both, but I think it would be most gorgeous as an eyeshadow because it does have some relatively larger pieces of sparkle.

Biobelle – Botanic Fiber Facial Mask I love love love sheet masks, so when I saw this mask I was so excited! I haven’t tried this mask yet, but hello… it’s made with chocolate soo, I am sure I will love it haha! But, the mask claims to moisturize your skin, leaving you with a glowing and youthful complexion. Chocolate is high in antioxidants, which help in hydrating and softening the skin. The other main ingredient in the mask, acai berries, help in retaining the moisture of the skin and fighting of yucky free radicals (created in our body by daily toxins we encounter) that can cause a dull appearance.

ColourPop – Beautycon Exclusive Lipstick I love ColourPop and their lippie stix, and I think it is so cool that Dolce Candy included a color just for Beautycon box subscribers! The color is gorgeous, it’s a mauve-y peach color and is perfect for every day. You can only get it in this box!

Garnier – Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Seriously you guys, I don’t know how I lived with out this stuff!! I have always wanted to try micellar water, but never got around to it. I am so glad it was included in this box because it is seriously my new all time favorite product. It takes off make up with so much ease; it’s like miracle magical water?! You need it. It will change your life.

Kate Somerville – ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment I love this product. I really love any exfoliant, I think exfoliating is such an important step in good skin care. But, this product is really great. It smells great (like cloves), it’s easy to use and the exfoliants are super fine and don’t tear at your skin. P.S. It’s the only product not pictured because I had it in my bathroom and totally forgot to put it back into the box before taking the photos… #ugh.

L’Oréal Paris – Voluminous Lash Primer I haven’t used a lash primer since high school, but I have always loved lash primers! The brush on this primer makes it really easy to use and I love having lush lashes! It’s supposed to condition your lashes, too.

L’Oréal Paris – Voluminous Feline Mascara The brush on this mascara has small, dense bristles and makes it easy to coat the roots of your lashes as well as your bottom lashes. Pair it with the primer for a fluttering wink 😉 !

Luxie Beauty – Rose Gold Tapered Highlighting Brush 522 I suppose this brush was put into the box to be paired with the glow powder (although I still think the powder would be best used as an eyeshadow). But, either way… I love getting new brushes!! The fall Beautycon box also included a Luxie brush, and I use it every day. The brush is so soft and such good quality; I love that it is rose gold!

Rimmel London – The Only 1 Surprise Lipcolor This lip color is so creamy and I love the finish. It’s great for a pop of color on your lips this winter, but will also be a great color for summer time. It’s a super hot pink, almost a bright red.

Skinvolve – Body Karate Cream This lotion has such a clean, fresh scent. It’s made it caffeine and argan oil and is supposed to help with circulation and skin texture. I have always loved coffee scrubs for my skin because of the positive effects of caffeine, so to have caffeine in the lotion is so cool! Plus, who doesn’t love argan oil?! I love the way my skin looks and feels after using this lotion.

Too Faced – Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer I was in need of a new bronzer and was actually planning on purchasing this exact bronzer, so I was stoked to see it in the box! If you have never tried it, you need to! It’s made with real cocoa and smells like chocolate. It’s also the perfect shade of bronze. I love it!
