This month I got….

From Bio Swiss, Stainless Steel Mini Tweezer. Who doesn’t need a pair of mini tweezers? Maybe you’re like “me” but you’d be wrong. Because at some point you will totally need them. Maybe you see a stray brow hair, maybe someone gets a splinter or a tick…. I keep a mini pair in a first aid kit in the car and also in my purse. You just NEVER KNOW. For real, they could send me mini tweezers every month and I’d be thrilled!

From Essenza, Luxury Hand Soap. I believe I’ve seen two scents of this but mine is in French Lavender. The soap is very fragrant but doesn’t give me a headache. It’s a wonderful, relaxing treat to keep by the sink for when I need to wash my hands.

From Styli-Style, Blush/Highlighter Stick. At first I wasn’t too sure about this, since I’d never heard of the brand and the retail price listed was so affordable. Upon swatching I loved the color and when worn I love it even more. It’s no where near a highlighter for me, definitely only a blush. Perfect for travel!

From Dermalogica, Active Moist. Even though I can’t stand the word moist I LOVE Dermalogica. This is a moisturizer sample of a product I haven’t tried yet so I’m excited to use it up to see if I like it. So far I love that it leaves my skin feeling super hydrated but doesn’t leave it greasy.

From Coastal Scents, Classic/Synthetic Brush. You can’t go wrong with a makeup brush, particularly from Coastal Scents. I’m a fan of the brand for their quality, affordable brushes and this one is no exception. It’s perfect for an all over lid color!

This months box was full of things I’m loving! The blush was a happy surprise and I’m all about this months “tools” of tweezers and a brush. Every single thing was a win for me and it’s so rare to say that about a monthly beauty sample box.
