- Everclen Facial Toner for sensitive skin - full-sized, $15

- Medusa's Makeup Bronzer - full-sized $12
- The Granola Goat Face Serum
- Molly Rose Balms Grapefruit Basil Body Scrub
Everclen Facial Toner for sensitive skin - full-sized, $15Oooh, excellent. Since December, I have been using toners regularly. Plus, I prefer my face products in mist form especially when I have painful acne. That this is fragrance-free is the icing on the cake.
Terre Mere Cosmetics Contouring Brush - full-sized, $34A soft brush that will go nicely with the bronzer included in this box. Any beauty box with a full-sized makeup brush is a winner in my book.
Medusa's Makeup Bronzer - full-sized $12It was only yesterday that I was thinking I hadn't bought any new bronzers this year and voila! Medusa is a brand I first came across through the erstwhile Lip Factory boxes. Good to get a bronzer from them. Some people got a lipstick in their boxes but the shade seems to be red, so I would rather get a bronzer than a lippie I wouldn't wear. This bronzer swatches lighter than it looks and has very mild shimmer.
The Granola Goat Face SerumRed raspberry seed oil and seabuckthorn berry oil are the main ingredients in this nourishing serum. I haven't heard of this brand before - it seems to be an Etsy exclusive. Always good to discover new brands, and anything that promises to fight inflammation sounds good to me.
Molly Rose Balms Grapefruit Basil Body ScrubI haven't opened the little tub containing this body scrub, but the contents seem to have solidified a bit. It smells great. Will try out over the weekend.
Verdict and where to subscribeLove the product selection - I can use everything in here. There are essentials, such as the face mist, and l'il treats, like the brush and the bronzer. Three full-sized products including one makeup brush is very good indeed. I love that all of these are vegan and cruelty-free. This is one of the nicest beauty boxes I have seen in a while - and I've tried about 20 now. And the bronzer is just lovely.
