AWESOME I ended up getting 5 full-size items!  In a monthly subscription box?  That’s practically unheard of.

The Face Primer is a dream to wear.  It’s silky without feeling oily or heavy and it includes extracts that boost anti-aging benefits and evens out skintone.  It’s definitely a great product to wear to get a matte finish.

The AM/PM cleanser is my favorite thing out of this box!  It’s a waterless cleanser!  So what I do is I stick some cotton pads in a ziplock bag, squirt some cleanser in it (enough to saturate but not too much), and then I stick it in my purse.  This way, I always have something to wipe away sweat or grime, even when I’m out.  BONUS it’s oil free and eyelash extension safe!  Woohoo!

The Hair Mask is pretty nice too—it’s like a leave-in deep conditioner.  It’s got a very rich smell and I’ve been using it after beach sessions to help get that dry and crispy feel out.  I apply a dollop (bigger than a quarter) to my hair (it’s pretty long) and let it sit for 30 minutes before I take a shower.

The Face Mask is also another after-beach ritual of mine.  It feels so wonderful on your skin—especially if you’d had a little to much sun.  It soothes, cools, and revitalizes skin while moisturizing.  I gently wash the sunscreen and grime off my face, apply this mask (and the hair mask haha), then I chill out for 30 minutes before wiping it off and taking a shower.

And voila!  July’s box was AMAZING.  I have three more to go (to get me through to October) but I’m very tempted to stay on until December.  I can’t imagine what a Christmas box would be like!
