Hello, beauties! The spring has arrived and so did the brand-new InStyle box spring edition. Bright colors, great skincare products, the glow one will fall in love with, and much more is to find in the box. Let´s dive into it and look at each product in detail.
Lashes by Ardell
I literally can´t get enough from the lashes by Ardell. I use them a lot for my photo and video shootings. In the box, there was a pair of gorgeous, still, very natural looking real hair lashes, called “wispies“. They are super easy to use and they look super pretty. I will use them for sure because I love looking glamorous and still, natural.
Nail polish by ANNY
In the box, I found a nail polish with a gel finish in the shade “totally flamazing” by ANNNY. It´s a red color with a bright orangy undertone. I personally love such vibrant colors and wear them a lot in spring and summer. Though I´ve never tried nail polishes by ANNY, I heard many positive reviews of this brand. I love the bright brush in the product which makes the application super easy. Additionally, it dries very fast and has a trendy, shiny, gel finish.
Highlighter by So Susan Cosmetics
I always thought that it was almost impossible to find a good highlighter in a beauty box. I must admit that I was wrong. The little guy by So Susan totally surprised me. Its cream-gel texture is amazing to apply and blend out even with a tip of your finger. The mixture of a radiant glimmer and holographic particles create a unique glow. The color in the box matches almost every skin tone and has a glowy wet finish on the skin. To me, it´s one of the best highlighters for a long time.
The shower foam and the body spray “yummy lemon” by Bilou
Probably, you won´t meet any German girl who doesn´t know the brand Bilou. It´s very popular and I myself did try some of these yummy-smelling products. I´m happy to get two new items from a new line by the brand. In the box, there were the yummy lemon shower foam and the yummy lemon body spray. Such citrus scents are perfect to get an energy kick in the morning. I love using such in spring and summer. They not only give a lot of energy but also a great mood for the whole day. As for the body spray, I love taking with to the gym and using it after my workouts. It´s so refreshing! These products are great because they are not tested on animals and they are also vegan-friendly.
Haargummis by Invisi Bobble with Acovado-Charms
Probably, the most famous and the most comfortable hair ties are the ones by Invisibobble. A six-piece package of these cute hair ties had been hiding in the spring box. It´s the limited “friends” edition with two hair ties decorated with the golden avocado charms. They look very cute as a bracelet on the wrist. I use silicone hair ties almost every day because they are very practical and gentle to my hair.
Silicone applicator by Freulein B
This product is the only one in the current box, I´m personally a little bit skeptical about. The fact is that I´ve seen many reviews about different silicone applicators and none of them was a positive one. As a huge fan of the beautyblender, I have doubts that this way of foundation application could top my favorite sponge. Still, I will give it a shot or two for sure.
A cute little ceramics vase
I love home decorations so much and I have plenty of them to decorate my place for any occasion and a current mood. This little cutie matches my spring decorations just perfectly. I can clearly see it on my makeup vanity in the tandem with other vases and candles or by itself with a flower in it.
Aloe soothing mask by Benton
The sheet mask by Benton contains a precious aloe vera elixir which calms down the skin, hydrates and refreshes it. The mask is perfect for dry and sensitive skin and helps to neutralize slight redness. I enjoyed it so much, especially after doing my chemical peeling routine.
Coffee Tonic by Thomas Henry
It´s probably the most interesting and unusual non-alcoholic bottled drink I´ve tried. Just imagine, sparkling water which is flavored with a citrus aroma and elaborated with a coffee note. It´s so refreshing and tasty. The brand recommends to enjoy it simply on ice or adding some herb liqueur, rum or whiskey. I tried a non-alcoholic version and I loved it.
Mini Bullet Journal by Local & Urban
This is a great idea of how to try out the bullet journal concept. This pretty version is already made for you and contains numerous different reviews (monthly and weekly), questionnaires, practical reminders and much more. I really like the way how this cute bullet journal is organized. The only thing which is kinda sad that it´s a try-out version. That means that you only have a chance to try some months and then decide, whether you want to purchase the full version of it.
