Today we will be unboxing the new Winter Beautycon box curated by the lovely Dolce Candy!
When I heard about the Winter Beautycon box I knew “oh I just have to have it!” Unlike some other boxes I’ve had, the Beautycon box features FULL SIZED products ranging from drugstore/affordable to VERY high end for a BARGAIN! So after watching a few unboxings on YouTube I snagged one up using a coupon code of course! (I will rarely ever, ever, EVER pay full price for anything lol thanks to my mom for teaching me frugality!)
I was BEYOND excited to get my hands on the box. There were just so many awesome items in there for me to miss out! I swear, of all the beauty boxes I’ve ever received this is the best by far! Lets just dive to everything we have here right now!
Garner SKINACTIVE Micellar Cleanding Water – Micellar waters have been all the rage for a very longtime. I never got into the hype, but now that I have it I don’t mind giving it a try at all! In fact this may well make an exceptional eye makeup remover, as mascara seems the hardest to get rid of.
I consider this a travel sized bottle. It’s 3.4 oz and has a retail value of $5. Not a bad deal.
SKINLOVE Body Karate Cream – It’s an entire 8 fl oz and is a lovely smelling body cream. My skin gets EXTRA dry in the winter so I’m very excited to use this. I have high expectations for this, and not just because it’s expensive af! It costs $40!
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment- I’m SUPER thrilled to finally be trying this out! Bloggers, YouTubers and gurus have all been raving about this for the longest! I’m very into exfoliating my skin because I have acne prone skin and some texture, and exfoliating my face weekly has done wonders for the surface, appearance and feel of my skin! I already have one from the body shop that I love, but since this claims to be “Hollywoods 2 minute facial” You can’t expect me not to get curious!
Plus, the fact that this small .5 fl oz bottle retails for $24 automatically makes the price I paid for this box a bargain combining it with the SKINLOVE body cream!
Ali and Jay $50 credit- ok, maybe it’s this product that makes this box the total bargain. Now I checked out the Ali and Jay website since I didn’t know too much about them before, and I saw their clothes start at $100 and up! Usually clothes that price aren’t my desire, but the gift code will knock off at least half the price, so this may come in handy if I find something in their store that I really want. I might just even give this away, I don’t know yet. We’ll see.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Medium/Deep – it’s definitely sample sized; it’s a little larger than a single eyeshadow. It’s no bother since that’s exactly how I intend use this. This shade Medium deep is equivalent to my foundation shade, not my bronzing shade. I’ll be using this as a transition color for my eyeshadows instead. It has a lovely chocolate aroma which is never a bad thing. It’ll compliment my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette very well!
Full size retails for $30.
Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in “Illuminati” – I first heard of them through beauty youtuber/guru Jackie Aina! She launched a collaboration with them last year and was DEVESTATED that her highlighter sold out before I could get one! She did swatch some others that would come with the collaborative collection and All of their highlighters were stunning to me. Illuminati was one of them, so I’m thrilled to have it to myself right now.
I was a bit put off at how small it is, but then I learned that a little goes a VERY long way so it’s no big deal now.
The primer is between $5.99 and $8.99 depending where you shop.
Sorry you can’t buy this from their website!
Rommel London The Only One Lipstick in – I’m so excited that this is a red lipstick because that’s my favorite color. Red lipstick will always be my number one. Red lipstick is the reason I got into makeup in the first place! It’ll always have sentimental value to me. Anyway, this also feels moisturizing. I also really like the design: it’s flat so it’ll apply very easily and I have no fear of it breaking. I believe this will become a favorite.
I remember these being around $5 each in the drugstore and Target.
That’s all that came with in this Winter Besutycon Box in collaboration with Dolce Candy! I’m very happy with everything that’s in here so far. I’ll provide full in depth reviews if everything very soon!
Did you get the Beautycon box too? What are your favorites? What fell short?
