From now on I´m going to receive a beauty box which is made by one of my favorite magazines InStyle. For those of you who doesn’t know what it is, I´ll clarify t a little bit. Intsyle box is a kind of beauty box like glossy box, douglas box etc. However there is a difference between this box and the rest. There are not only beauty and skin care products in there but also accessories, lifestyle stuff and so on. The price of one box which you get once in three months is about 30 EUR.
Well, this is my first box which was delivered to me in the middle of December before the Christmas vacation. To be honest I am really skeptic about such beauty boxes because there are many things in there that no one even needs. When I get something that I don’t need I can neither throw it away nor use it. In case of the Instyle box I wanted to try it because I love this magazine. That was my last chance to believe that some good stuff can be put into these boxes.
Now it’s time to come to the point. What was in there?! As for cosmetics there were a concealer palette by Catrice Cosmetics, a mineral eyeshadow in a beautiful rose shade and a liquid long-lasting lipstick by Trend it up in the box.
As for skin care I found in the box a serum and moisturizing gel for a 7 days use by Clarins, a face mask with aloe vera, urea, avocado and thermal water by Schaebens. A dry shampoo by Batiste was also in the box.
As for accessories there were a necklace with two fake pearls by Review and a set of three bracelets by Hallhuber.
A rose lemonade by Fentimans and a chocolate bar by Lindt ensured heavenly pleasure.
Last but not least there were two bonus certificates for Westwing Home and Living and for Instyle magazine (Instyle E-paper for three months).
On the whole I am satisfied with my Instyle box. The mineral eyeshadow, the serum by Clarins, the dry shampoo by Batiste and the rose lemonade are my personal favorites in December. As for concealer palette one should use it carefully because of its consistency (it is creamy). Such concealer shouldn´t be applied on the eye party in order not to get a mess. It´s good for a punctual correction such as spots and little scars on the face. The lipstick is not that long-lasting as it supposed to be but the color is great.
Is this beauty box worth spending 30 EUR? Definitely not. But it´s ok as everyone wants to get a profit out of the business.
