So if you haven’t guessed by the title of this post, today I’m sharing 5 Holy Grail Products I discovered from Subscription Boxes. I haven’t reviewed a Subscription Box on my blog in a long time. I love them, I really do but my makeup collection has grown to the point where I can’t justify little beauty treats in the mail each month.
One of the reasons why I started signing up for them in the first place was because I wanted to learn more about makeup products without feeling uncomfortable and overwhelmed in a makeup department. Subscriptions have taught me so much about different products and brands. I originally started with Ipsy and have gone through Topbox, Fabfitfun, Boxycharm and more. In this post I’ll share my top subscription box HG beauty products, why I love them and what box they came in.
HG Beauty Product #1 Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
This serum is a skinsaver for me. I originally got a sample from the 2018 Febraury Look Fantastic box and I’m about to make my second repurchase. I can get away without using it in the summer but now that it’s Autumn my skin starting to peel and develop dry patches. For a girl with extra dry skin this serum is a holy grail, I actually notice a difference when I use it vs. when I don’t. It’s a shame it’s so expensive because I’ll be repurchasing the full size.
HG Beauty Product #2: Kate Somerville Exfolikate
Exfolikate is something that I would never have purchased for myself in a million years. It’s so expensive! The mini is more affordable but we all know that minis rarely have a good value compared to the full size. I received a full size Exfolikate from the 2017 Winter Fabfitfun Box and I have since featured it in my 10 Winter Skin Savers blog post. It’s a great face exfoliant, it makes my face feel amazingly smooth and soft. It also contains
HG Beauty Product #3: Aesthetica P12 Brush
I am obsessed with my Aesthetical P12 Brush! It came in the May Boxycharm box and I love it so much, it’s extremely soft and it’s tapered shape makes it great for applying contouring bronzers. It’s also a big fluffy brush so I find it blends out my powdered blushes and bronzers really nicely. I used to use small brushes for blush and bronzer but I’m never going back after trying this brush.
HG Beauty Product #4: ColourPop Matte Lippie Stix
ColourPop Lippie Stix are my absolute favourite matte lip formula. I like it ever better than liquid lipsticks. I mainly wear matte lipsticks because I find that they last a lot longer and they transfer/smudge less than cream and satin formulas. Matte Lippie Stix are so comfortable to wear and have shocking staying power. They’re also hella pigmented! I received the shade Glam Bag from my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag and I love it! I’ve since purchased the formula in the red shade Lullaby and it is my favourite red lipstick to date.
HG Beauty Product #5: Revlon UniqOne Coconut Hair Treatment
I’m not really much of a hair product user BUT this treatment is special. It’s been on my repurchase list ever since I received a sample in my 2016 July Topbox Subscription. I recently picked it up from my local Chatters salon for about $20 and I don’t regret it at all. UniqOne has a lasting coconut scent which I absolutely adore and it has 10 styling benefits from heat & colour protection to shine & frizz control to detangling & split end prevention. The list goes on.
My hair has a tendency to tangle throughout the day now that it’s long so I’m finding that I need to use styling products once again to keep my hair tangle free. This one does the job and I smell like coconut for hours after using it!
