OneRadiant | March 2014

Standard

This is my last OneRadiant box.  The very last one.  I tried to get them to let me continue subscribing but they said, No! No skin care for you!

Well, it wasn’t exactly like that.  I guess technically it was more along the lines of the subscription just being a 3-month program, and the only way to guarantee you wouldn’t get the same products in the next 3-month subscription is if your skin care needs have changed.  And mine hasn’t.  Sadly, I’m still a mildly dry, somewhat combination in the t-zone, periodically dry chin and forehead, with normal cheeks and temples.  Anyone else got this?  We skin twins?  No?

It’s just me then.  Figures.

There’s probably not even a name for that skin type.  I’ve probably even invented it all by myself.  I could be a miracle of nature and not even know it.  Let’s just assume that’s the case from here on out, mmmm k?

Anyway, here is my final box:

First of all, I was cheated.  The little pouch of EltaMD sunscreen is a duplicate.  And not just from receiving it in another subscription box (which I have; it was Beauty Army), but OneRadiant sent this to me in my very first box a mere two months ago.  Honestly, do they not have a database that tracks that for them?  Or did they run out of samples to treat my bizarre – I mean, miracle of nature – skin type?  Whichever the case may be, I gave them to a friend.  I didn’t dislike the sunscreen.  It was fine.  I just didn’t feel like sampling it YET AGAIN.  Have you seen how much shit I have in my bathroom?  I don’t have time for no repeats.

So if you can’t tell, this box is chock full of one-time-use packets.  Hooray.  Here’s my face:  -__-

Another packet being the Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment.  I’ve always wanted to try a product by Sunday Riley.  Primarily because I love the name of their company.  Okay, that’s the only reason.  I have no idea about anything else.  And sadly, after putting on this product one time and one time only, I still have no idea.  It felt like any other serum I’ve ever tried, and I looked exactly the same as I always do afterwards.  I suppose if I really want to find out if it does all it claims (brightens, improves textures, replaces your old face for a young one), I can pay $105 for the full-size.

And suddenly, I’m not interested anymore.  Tricky little marketing tactic though.

That little envelope that says Chella on it contains three sample packets of their advanced treatment line.  There’s a serum, a lifting lotion (for jowls; urgh, horrible word), and a line filler.  I used all three on Saturday, and guess what?!  Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  Why, again?  You know why.  I’m not even going to say it because I’ve already mentioned it like 15 times in this post.  And also, I’m trying to keep the carpal tunnel at bay.

But if I need to be CEO of all the companies, so be it.

Moving right along.

Finally, a deluxe sized sample of something.  Now was that so hard?  Received a tube of the Nia24 Physical Cleansing Scrub.  I’m alright with this.  I exfoliate twice a week so I always need scrubs like this.  I haven’t used it yet because I’m still working on a tube of VBeaute that I got last month.  But it’s coming up next, and I’ll be sure to let you know.  It’s got niacin-infused jojoba beads in it, so I’m sure it’s just lovely.  (Oh, I love jojoba – did I mention that?)

Last product is four little tubes of a serum from Rejuve MD.  I was supposed to get the eye treatment according to the product card in the OneRadiant box, but my tubes clearly say FACE on them.  So here’s to hoping that’s correct or else I’m putting eye gel all over me.  Anyway, the serum is a gel consistency so it goes on cool and wet, but it dries slightly sticky before it completely sinks in. I don’t necessarily think it makes my skin soft or anything, but it does feel better once fully absorbed.  I’m super big on texture, so I wouldn’t purchase this on that fact alone.  It’s also $165 for the full-size, so I would also not purchase this because I am poor.  However, I’m going to relish these four little tubes as if there’s liquid gold inside.  Which there practically is if you think about it.

That’s it, people.  No more OneRadiant.  It was fun getting customized skin care just for me, but I’m okay with letting this one go.  It’s an inexpensive box, though, so if you love skin care, I’d recommend shelling out $36 for the 3-month subscription.  Even if you don’t like anything in the box, you’ll probably still use most of it.  There’s a bit of skewed logic for you, but I’m wayyy big into justifying everything beauty related.  It’s a natural inborn reflex.  Can’t help it.  It’s in me.

Til next time.
