Beautycon Box

The summer box was curated by Kandee Johnson.

Every Beautycon box comes with an information card detailing the items inside.

The Redken Fashion Waves Sea Salt Spray is great for summer!  I will definitely be using this spray to get some nice beachy waves in my hair.  This Redken Sea Salt Spray has a matte finish and is for all hair types.

Retail Value:  $19.50 (estimate)

This Garnier Daily Moisturizer will give you younger looking skin.  I could definitely use this since I'm now in my late thirties.  :(  This Garnier moisturizer is developed with an antioxidant complex of Vitamin C & E and Lipo-Hydroxl Acid (LHA).

Retail Value:  $14.99 (estimate)

This Neutrogena Cleansing Oil cleans skin and removes makeup with no greasy residue.  This product is non-comedogenic so it won't clog pores (that's good!).  

Retail Value:  $8.99 (estimate)

La Fresh Beauty & Personal Care Wipes

The LA Fresh Oil Free Face Cleanser wipes ($7.99 for a pack of 30) are fragrance free and paraben free.  They are a wonderful blend of papaya, pineapple, cucumber, marshmallow, oat, aloe, chamomile extracts, and Vitamin C and E.  The LA Fresh Instant Cooling Body Soother wipes (perfect for the hot summer!) are made with natural peppermint, olive, jojoba, sesame, grapeseed, and Vitamin E.  These wipes are around $19.99 for a pack of 36.

I could always use some waterproof mascara for when I'm crying at how much money I've spent on all my subscription boxes.  :)  I'll definitely be using this Too Faced Mascara soon!

Retail Value:  $23 (estimate)

I haven't tried this Smashbox Brow Shaping Powder yet but the shade Taupe will definitely be too light for my dark brown, almost black eyebrows.  We'll see.  I wish I would have received the brunette or dark brown color.  :/

Retail Value:  $25 (estimate)

This Benzac Blemish Clearing Hydrator is something I will try because I still get some breakouts on my chin (most likely a hormonal thing).  I guess this is part three of a three step process so I don't know if you should use the other steps first or if you can use this by itself.  I'm guessing you can use this product by itself.  This product contains East Indian sandalwood oil and salicylic acid.

Retail Value:  $11.99

I haven't tried out this NYX Ombre Lip Duo yet but I don't know if this orange/peach color will look good on me.  This NYX Ombre Lip Duo is a satin matte lipstick and lip liner duo that creates a cool ombre look.  If this color looks weird I'll most likely try out some of the other colors in this line.

Retail Value:  $11.99 (estimate)

This lighter color is the lipstick.

The darker color is the lip liner.

This NYX Eye Pencil is an eye shadow and eye liner all in one.  I think I received this product or something similar in one of my past beauty boxes.  The color is very light so it doesn't show up much on my pale skin.  I would like to try some of the other shades by this brand.

Retail Value:  $4.49 (estimate)

Cover FX Contour Brush

This brush is made for contouring.  You can never have too many brushes.  

Retail Value:  $38

VersaSpa Face Moisturizing Gradual Tanner (.25 fl oz.)

This face moisturizing gradual tanner is for all skin tones.  I received this in another beauty box recently but I haven't tried this yet.  

Retail Value for 2 fl. oz.:  $35

Seventeen The Edit by Seventeen Promo Card for 15% Off

This is a promo card for 15% your purchase on The Edit by Seventeen which I've never heard of before and looks like a store with clothes for the younger crowd.

My Thoughts:  I really liked my second Beautycon box.  I think many of the products are perfect for summer and I can't wait to try them all.  I wish some of the products (the ombre lip duo, the brow shaping powder, and the jumbo eye pencil) were in different shades but I can't control that and it is a surprise subscription box so I can't complain too much.  I'll just have to check out the other shades of those products.  This box does have an excellent value for a $36 box.  The items in the summer box retailed over $150!  Awesome!!  I can't wait to see what the Fall box contains!
