Happy Friday! Yesterday I received my May BoxyCharm box and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Super Bloom and with the fact that it’s spring and the whole, ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’ saying, it’s a great theme.
The first item we have is the Kate Somerville Exfolikate Glow Moisturizer. This is a glow moisturizer that revives dull, dry and lackluster skin. It has powerhouse ingredients that remove the dead surface skin cells, whilst smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. This does have AHA in it, which could make your skin more sensitive, so they recommend using sunscreen, wearing protective clothing and limiting sun exposure while you use it. I personally like Kate Somerville, so I’m interested to give this a try.
The next item we have is the Skin Inc Serum Glow Filter. This is a serum that acts as a primer, it has rare Gold Hibiscus extract to smooth and even your skin tone while helping to provide anti-aging and brightening benefits. It also helps with making your pores less visible and gives you a pearl finish. This has the Hydra Micro Capsules in it, which obviously has benefits, but it also looks cool when it’s sitting on your vanity. I love a good primer, and serum for that matter, so I’m excited to try this.
Moving on, we have my Choice item for the month, the Item Beauty by Addison Rae Air Hug Concealer in 100. This is a medium to full coverage concealer with a lightweight formula featuring Carica papaya fruit extract which delivers a boost of antioxidants like Vitamin C and leaves a smooth and seamless finish. I’m always down to try a new concealer and honestly a lot of the “celebrity” or “influencer” makeup lines we see, tend to not be that great, but I was happily surprised by this. I wore it yesterday and I really like it so far. It has a really nice texture so it pretty much glides on and it blends into the skin without creasing. It also has a large applicator and I like that for concealer.
The second to last item we have is from a brand that’s new to BoxyCharm, V Kosmetik, and it’s a Creamy Liquid Velvet Lipstick in Bubbly. This liquid lipstick is formulated to be lightweight, creamy and long-wearing and I can tell you that it’s all of those things. I wore this yesterday and I like it a lot. It goes on smooth and creamy, is lightweight, doesn’t feel drying on the lips and lasted very well through eating and drinking. This color is also gorgeous, it’s berry toned, but it’s one of those berry tones that works in both spring/summer and fall/winter. A very versatile tone.
And the last item we have is the Yensa Skin On Skin Beauty Sponge. This is a multi-functional sponge that guarantees a full coverage, but skin like, streak free application. It has a precision tip and tapered edges, so you can get the perfect contoured look. This sponge is also paraben, sulfate, latex and phthalate and animal cruelty free. It does feel slightly hard, but I think it will soften up once it’s run under water.
That about wraps it up for this post, this box was a little more skincare heavy than I typically like, but I think there’s some good stuff in here. If you got any of the same items in your May BoxyCharm box let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
