The choices for this month's bag weren't that great, and the bag isn't looking that great either.

In concept this bag is cool, but it came hella scuffed up and just looks cheap.


Theme card.


Murad Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser ($7.11) - This is a fine cleanser but there's only so many cleansers a woman can take before they start to get boring. I would prefer to not see a cleanser in a box/bag for a year if it were up to me. It is clarifying so I have to use a good moisturizer afterwards.

H2O+ Hydration Oasis Refreshing Gel Moisturizer ($7.56) - A repeat brand for the month, apparently they had extras. This brand was in my allure box as well and it's they're both fine moisturizers, but it's another item type I could do without. 

Hey Honey Take Away The Drama Youth Boosting Honey & Copper Peel Off Mask ($9.80) - I like peel-off masks and this is a fine one for me, but I have so many still and use them so sparingly so it's not something I'd purchase on my own.


Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist (Choice) ($6.00) - I chose this item out of some other items that I equally wasn't excited about, but better to get a setting spray that I like than something I don't.

MOTD Cosmetics Pigment Packer Small Shader Brush ($12.00) - This is a good brush for packing shadow on your lid, which I need.


This bag was valued at $42.47, but I was completely let down. It was a basic skincare box and my profile isn't skincare heavy, so I'm not sure why I received theses items.

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