I keep a box of samples that I have received from my monthly subscriptions services because as much as I would like to use them I sometimes can’t keep up (I share a lot of items with my family and friends or donate them). From the items I do use I have some hits and some misses. I’ll just include hits this time because I really want to give the misses another chance!

Keratin Protein Mask, Birchbox December 2015faves-from-the-box-1I received a lot of hair masks during the winter of 2015/2016 and so far I’ve used up this one. I actually finished this off about 2 months ago but was holding on to this until I had more items to include in this post. I was able to use this 3 times as a pre-wash mask and each time it left my hair feeling a bit fuller than just using shampoo and conditioner alone. Unlike other creamy masks, this had a gel-like consistency and smelled a bit like VapoRub. Regardless, it helped keep my ends healthy until I decided to chop them off.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Radiant Protection Energizing Serum, Topbox June 2016faves-from-the-box-3This came in my Bliss Prive box that I was really excited about because I love this brand. There were many great products here but I thought I would mention the Radiant Protection Energizing Serum here. This golden serum is my go to recently before I moisturize. I like to concentrate this mostly around my eyes and my forehead. I have noticed the skin under my eyes to appear a bit brighter and tighter. Surprisingly, I’ve gotten a lot of use out of this and it’s still about 1/4 full.

The Face Shop Collagen Pomegranate Pack, Topbox May 2016faves-from-the-box-2This is a night cream but I do use it in the morning sometimes too because it’s super hydrating. The formula is thin so it easily spreads over my face. Sometimes I find that with moisturizers I have to apply more than one layer because my skin might still feel dry but I haven’t needed to with this which is awesome! Plus it claims to help improve skin elasticity which I am all for!

Have you tried any of these products? Any subscription box favourites you have?

Lots of Love,
