From Purlisse, Pur-Protect SPF30. Well, another one of these! If you've read about any of my other beauty boxes you know I like these in the small sizes to put on my hands while I'm out and about. Hand wrinkles are third in areas I'm most paranoid about getting wrinkles (behind lips and eyes). No one needs hand wrinkles!

From La Fresh, Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes. I love anything and everything about these makeup remover wipes. They get the job done efficiently and the scent I got, , is amazing!

From Nanacoco, Lip Gloss. The shade I received is in First Kiss. The shade swatched is much more opaque than when you smooth it out on the lips, but I love the pink flush of color this gives my pucker. I feel like my entire face was brightened when I wore it. It was sticky to swatch but didn't feel that way at all while on the lips. The included Vitamin E keeps your pout nourished while looking pretty.

From Novex, Brazilian Keratin. This packet is for use after you shampoo. Leave it in for 25 minutes and get ready for smoothness and shine. I haven't yet tested this out, but anything with the words Brazilian and Keratin pretty much always make me and my fro happy.

From Style Essentials, Nail Polish. I have no idea what shade this is but the card says it's within a 4 nail polish collection. It's sheer and the small hex glitters are iridescent golden. Very pretty. One coat is shown over top of Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace.

This months box was, again, an excellent mix on makeup, haircare and skincare. I was really happy to get a full sized lip gloss as well as create a packet of one my fave makeup removing wipes.

Based off of this box it’s clear that the service is worth the $12.00 price tag. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for September!
