Beauty Army (What's Left Of Box #1)

For some reason, I thought it would be a great idea to receive a monthly box of beauty samples.  That decision was made before I decided to do a Product 10 Pan (which I'll post about soon) and discovered that a monthly box of new products is the LAST thing I need.  As I was going through my makeup/beauty collection looking for products to use up, I realized that I probably have a lifetime supply of samples!!

So, for better or worse, I recently received my first monthly Beauty Army box.  This subscription service allows you to pick the six products you receive in your box.  I believe the selection to choose from changes daily & is based on your style preference.  It costs $12/month or you can get an annual subscription for $132 ($12/month + one free box) My next selection date is scheduled for August 6th!

Box #1

Empty because I already used products!

What I got in my box:

- Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
- Yes To Cucumbers On-The-Go Facial Towelette
- Cotz Face For Natural Skin Tone (SPF 40)
- Addiction NV Gel Liner Pot in Starstruck
- Menza Daily Face Wash
- Pida Exfoliating Gel

I used the Pida Exfoliating Gel before one of my baths by massaging the gel onto my dry skin.  It felt like the soft granules were doing a good job of exfoliating and removing any dead skin, but I probably won't be purchasing the full size at a list price of $54.  I have far too many other exfoliators I have to finish up before I can even consider getting a new one!

I was ABSOLUTELY impressed with the Menza Daily Face Wash.  It lasted me almost a week!  I know this product is supposed to be for men, but I don't care what gender a product is supposed to be made for as long as it works.  It was soft and gentle, didn't have a nasty chemical smell, and really worked to remove any "spots" I had.  The full size is $40 and I'll seriously consider purchasing this product once I finish the basket of facial cleansers I need to get through first.  

You may notice that going through the products I already own will be a recurring theme.  I am an addict.  I need help! :-)

I still need to try:

Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelette

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream

Cotz Face For Natural Skin SPF 40

Coin used for scale.

The Addiction NV Gel Liner Pot in Starstruck is beautiful!  It is a bright silver color that I have been using almost daily with my Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack (to create a gradient effect).  I love the cute little pot and there is a surprising amount of product inside too!

  1. Good for you! Beauty Army can be a fun subscription.

    Happy unboxing!

    1. Thanks Karen! I'm having a lot of fun picking out my own products :D I just wish the selection were a little larger to pick from!! xo Kelly
