Jelly Pong Pong Lychee Gel Softening Shower & Bath Gel
I received this shower gel in my Luxe Box this month. This is one of the cons of subscribing to both boxes. There are a lot of duplicates between the two. If you’re lucky, the doubles that you end up getting will be a product you like. In this case, I got lucky! I really liked this shower gel. The lychee-lemon scent is heavenly!

MaskerAide All Eyes On Me Hydrating Eye Gel Patches
I can’t wait to try these. I work night shifts, getting home at 4 am, then up again for 7:30 to get my son ready for school. Sleep is hard to come by! So, I’ve noticed more and more that I am getting dark circles under my eyes. These eye gel patches are supposed to help with those, along with fine lines! There is only one pair in this package but it says that both sides of the patches can be used, so I think I will try to get two uses out of them.

Nova Scotia Fishermen Extreme Lip Care Fisher-Mint Lip Balm
This is a 100% natural lip balm. I like the name of it, “Fisher-Mint.” Clever! 😉 As you might have guessed, it is mint scented and it definitely tingles my lips. I’m not sure if I will like this or not. I’m kind of picky with my lip balm because my lips tend to react badly to most brands other than Nivea.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics La Isla Chic Brush
I just noticed on the packaging that this company is from The Netherlands. I find that interesting because that is where my family is from! Anyway, this is an angled brush for eyes or maybe brows. I’m guessing – I’m really not the best with this makeup stuff but I’m learning! It doesn’t look to be the best quality but I love the design on the handle. I find this brand always has great designs on their packages and products!

Final Thoughts? I think I’m 50/50 on this box. On one hand, everything I received are items I can use. On the other hand, there’s nothing that got me excited or really stuck out. I would say the shower gel but I just got that in my Luxe Box so the novelty is gone! The eye gel patches are useful but it’s only one pair so it’s an underwhelming sample. Also, this is my third month in a row that I “wished” for a Privé box and didn’t get one, so that has been disappointing.

Thanks for reading,
xoxo, Tigritsa
