I received my August BoxyCharm box yesterday and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Boxy Glamping, which is a great theme as for the late summer months.
So the first product we have is my choice item for the month, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Purifying Cleanser. This is a cleanser that removes your makeup, residue and any dead skin you may have while also getting rid of sebum and decongesting your pores. This says it will leave your skin feeling mattified and fresh but it won’t dry it out. This is a product I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so I’m excited to try it and I’ll let you guys know what I think.
The next product we have is the Minetan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula that works in a time release fashion so you get layers of hydration as you sleep. This is supposed to instantly absorb when you put it on and will not only leave your skin super hydrated but super glowy when you wake up. I really like the idea of this, so I’m interested to try it out and see how I like it.
Moving on we have the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. This primer says it will enhance your eyeshadow and keep it locked in from day to night so you don’t have to worry, dries quickly and transparent. It’s also cruelty free. I love a good eye primer and I do have a couple of favorites, so I’m interested to see how this one compares.
The second to last product we have is the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set. This is a mini set of Trestique’s best selling shades of highlight stick, blush stick, eyeshadow crayon and brow pencil. The highlighter is in the shade Maldives Luminescent and it’s an absolutely gorgeous champagney shade with just the right amount of shimmer and a great glow when it hits the light. I was looking to buy another highlighter in a shade like this, so this is perfect. The blush is in the shade Moroccan Rose. It’s a nice rosey shade that leans towards the natural side and appears to be very buildable. I don’t usually like blush sticks, but I’ll try this one out and see how I feel. The eyeshadow crayon is in the shade Tahitian Shimmer and it’s a unique shadow. It does have a nice amount of shimmer and went on really creamy. It’s a mix of a brown/gold/bronze. It’s a very pretty shadow. And the brown pencil is in the shadow Americano. It’s a nice medium brown in a warmer tone. I like the triangle shape of the pencil and how you can get in there and be precise.
And the last product we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvety finish. In tone this is a deeper red, but you can tell it has berry undertones. It has shea butter to condition and nourish your lips so they feel hydrated for hours after application. Based on the swatch I can tell this is super pigmented and it felt really light on my hand so I assume it will feel light on the lips. This also has one of those cushion applicators, and I don’t have a lot of lip products with that style of applicator so hopefully it applies as well as others.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August BoxyCharm box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my September box :).
