Back to another Plus bag. I've actually since canceled my Plus subscription, keeping the regular one.


Info card.


theBalm Cosmetics In the Balm of Your Hand Greatest Hits Volume 2 Palette ($32.00) - I didn't expect to like this, I typically hate when face and eye palettes are mixed, but this one has such a good mix blush/bronzer shades that can be used as eyeshadow shades that I can easily travel with just this palette. I especially like the bronzer shade as a transition shade.


Ahava Hydration Cream Mask ($33.00) - I'll be honest, the first time I received this I thought it was a hair mask (mostly because of the size) and used it as such. I've since learned that this is for your face and let me tell you, it does a lot better job of moisturizing your face than it does your hair.


Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 ($45.00) - I really like this moisturizer. It's not the best under makeup, but I have yet to find the perfect one for that. It doesn't make my skin ghostly or purple, which is a plus, and it's a good daytime moisturizer.


Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer (Forever Fades Fast) ($18.00) - I'll swatch this, but I won't like it. Why must Smith & Cult have such strange packaging?


F.A.R.A.H. Brushes Show Me Magic Eye Brush Set ($50.00) - I was thrilled at first to see this brand featured so much, but now it's just the next Wander Beauty. They're fine brushes, but I'd never pay $10 each.


Swatches of theBalm.


This box was valued at $178.00. The box was a fine one, nothing spectacular but they're pretty solid products.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments below!
