I’m gonna try to make this review short and sweet. I’m not sure how that’s gonna work out cuz I tend to get very chatty when I’m posting. In fact, I could spend a few paragraphs discussing how I’m gonna make a review short and sweet, thereby defeating the purpose about 100%.
I’m really sleepy. My brain’s already tucked in bed. Obviously.
So this box is from Petit Vour:
That little packet business in the back is a skin care sample set from Amala. I actually got two sets, so technically it’s more than a one-time use. But it continues to be a packet, so good try. A sheep in lamb’s clothing is still a sheep.
I don’t think that’s a saying.
Anyway, haven’t used this yet cuz I’m been working on finishing another cleanser. Which just happened tonight actually. So maybe it would’ve made more sense to do the review tomorrow.
Huh. Moving right along.
Got two products from Everyday Minerals – one a color correcting under eye powder and the other a tinted lip balm. I’ve used them both and like them both.
Can’t say much about the lip balm. It’s standard. Moisturizing, nice natural tint. Smells good. As for the color corrector, I got the yellow shade which is the opposite of blue on the color wheel. Blue is the color of under eye circles. Yellow cancels blue, therefore under eye circles disappear. Wellllll, not quite, but you did get a free science lesson just now so you’re welcome for that.
That blush from Ofra is fantastic. Wonderfully pigmented and lovely. I highly recommend spending $15 to get your own. If you insist on being just like me, get the color Charm.
Last item is one that I’ve never received in a box before. In fact, I’ve never received it in anything at all whatsoever. It’s beauty tea from R.L. Linden & Co. Not drinking tea, but steam facial tea. Isn’t that so cool? Just the simple uniqueness of this item makes me want to use it.
So I did. On Skincare Sunday, I boiled a pot of water, poured it in a glass bowl, added the tea, then practically laid my face in it for about 20 minutes. It was the ultimate in pampering, if you ask me. It smelled wonderful, like cinnamon and something else. Yes, that’s my technical description of the smell. WELL! I didn’t invent the thing.
Anyway. My steam ran out about 5 minutes in, so I was nose to nose to a bowl full of potpourri in order to feel the heat as much as possible. In other words, pretty sure I did a steam facial wrong. But it was fun nonetheless.
That’s it. My short and sweet post. Headed to bed. My brain is waiting for me.
