June’s box was called Sunny Side Up, and unfortunately the box was delayed a week, and therefore came when I was on vacation. This means I haven’t had time to review the box before now.
Sunny Side Up is not just the classic Eggs, but also an opportunity to look at the world from a positive perspective. That’s why this box is about giving your body and face a little extra love and care; because it is easier to build happiness when our “base” is happy (that meaning our bodies).
Seacret – Makeup Remover Wipes
For all skin types.
Effectively cleans waterproof makeup ideal for both home use and on the go!
Original Dead Sea Ingredients. Not tested on animals. Paraben Free. Hypoallergenic tested.
These are very soft wipes, they smell very clean, and feel very gentle.
Removes makeup fairly easy, eyes took about 4-5 times going over them though (which Is pretty normal for me, the mascara went off easily, there was just a lot of it)
Could definitely feel the product on them; when I was done using it, my hands felt slippery because of the product
Packaging is nice- I love black – and the “open/close” space gets easily sealed again after use, so there gets no air into the package
One wipe was enough for my daily makeup face (but so be honest, after a long day of work and sweat, there is not much makeup left anyways)
My face felt very good afterwards, it didn’t feel dried up nor sticky, which probably is because of the vitamin E, aloe Vera and minerals from the dead sea.
All in all very good and “stable” makeup remover wipes
The price is 190DKK (25Euro) so honestly they are were expensive, and therefore I would not buy them again. Found on their website
Polaar – Ice Source Moisturizing gel
IceSource Glacier Water Jelly is specially formulated to moisturize combination to oily skin. A gifted treatment with a unique objective: to intensely and durably moisturize the skin. A wave of freshness immediately envelops you in contact with this melting gel. The skin is soft, fresh, comfortable and regains its ideal moisture level.
Actually, put some in my nose because I tried to smell it, and I couldn’t smell anything. Thought: well at least it is good that it does not smell strong or bad
After applying, didn’t feel like I really needed to wash my fingers which I usually never feel (my fingers are usually a little sticky, but not really this time) I did wash my fingers though, because it is never nice to have stuff on your hands if you need to use them right away.
I felt my skin afterwards, and when I gently touched my face, it felt really smooth and baby-like, but if I touch fiercely (does that make sense?) then it gets a little warmer and also a bit sticky
It is cool that it is made with Glacier Water, and the packaging fits the theme perfectly
Overall my skin felt comfortable, and smooth afterwards, but not AS moisturized as I want (I was on the verge of wanting to put more on, because I felt like I maybe used a little too little before) but it could also just be because my skin is more combination/dry than combination/oily.
It costs 270DKK (36.2Euro) and you can get it here
Rituals – The Ritual Of Karma Foot Balm
Take care of your feet, then they will take care of you! The Ritual of Karma foot creme made to nourish and cool tired feet, make them soft, supple and give the ultimate nourishment. The Crème contains Chinese mint and doesn’t just nourish the feet – the whole body benefit from the fact, that they are carefully nourished.
This is translated as well as possible 😊
Another product that I (almost) put into my nose when trying to smell it…
The only time that I really felt like I got the smell, was when I smeared it onto my feet. It started to smell faintly of something, but not so strong that I could really define it.
I always really like rituals-even though I have never really bought anything from their brand. I have always got their items in Goodieboxes or as other “gifts”. I think their products are cool, their packaging is simple and pretty, and they always have such great thoughts. Their saying goes: We are not here to sell beauty, we are here to give you a good feeling.
They deliver indeed, with their many different “brands”, rituals of karma, and rituals of happy Buddha are examples of some of those I have tried before.
Rituals are even cruelty free, and are trying to limit waste when designing their packaging.
I used a small amount on my feet, and they instantly felt moisturized and calmed. I put on some socks and let my feet relax, and it felt as great as ever.
Actually I bought the limited edition The Ritual of Karme Goodiebox as soon as I tried this one. I just really love Rituals.
You can get it for 90DKK (12.05Euro) on their website
Masque Me Up – Aftersun Sheet Mask
Masque Me Up Aftersun Sheet Mask is a perfect mask to use after sunbathing. The mask is cooling, moisturizing and therefore protects the skin from dehydration. It is enriched with watermelon-extract which relieves irritation and works calming and cooling. It also contains coconut juice that gives the skin extra moisture and has an anti-age effect.
First things first; I am not that fond of sheet masks. They are indeed easy to put on, but I feel like they are always a little too slippery to actually stay on the skin.
Nonetheless I was excited to try this Sheet Mask on, just because I loved Masque Me Up’s foot mask socks from a previous Goodiebox.
Now to the actually trying on.
When I opened the package it actually squirted out with liquid, and the actually mask was soaked with product. It just felt a little too excessive.
The mask was so wet that I felt like it wouldn’t stay on (but that’s the way I normally feel about sheet masks), and after having it on for five minutes, the liquid that the mask was soaked in slowly moved down my throat almost making my shirt wet.
The mask was nice and cold to the skin, and definitely cooled my face, but I couldn’t get over the fact that is was SO wet.
I took it off after about 12 minutes, and I instantly noticed……….
How wet my face was. My face was dripping wet, and even my shirt had been dripped on.
I couldn’t smear the excess product into my skin because there were too much.
I ended up patting it off with a towel, but the product that was left, wasn’t able to be smeared out on my face, because it just stuck.
Overall, I am pretty sad about this one, because I REALLY loved their foot mask socks ☹
If you are interested though, you can get it for 50DKK (6.57 Euro) I found it here
Garnier Ambre Solaire – Sensitive Advanced Face Mist SPF 50
Garnier Ambre Solaire ultra-light face protection mist helps protect against long term damage from the sun and premature skin ageing whilst hydrating skin at the same time. The fresh ultra-light mist is instantly transparent on skin, non-greasy and can be applied over make-up.
To be honest with you, I have never tried a face mist before, and I am honestly not sure if this one “really” counts as one, since the descriptions sounds like it is just a “spray on” sun screen.
The mist that came out was very even and gentle. It felt a little cold to the skin, but was overall nice.
There were no discomfort and it felt like it quickly went into the skin.
I have to try this one again sometime I actually have to go into the sun for a long time (I am so busy with work the next few weeks that I will not have time to actually go into the sun)
It is really cool that it can be applied over makeup, and I didn’t see any change to my makeup after using this spray.
The product itself only contains 75ml (2.5oz), which is not much, but that is because they have made it to be travel friendly- which is also kind of cool.
Overall I am pleased with it, but I will use it somewhere in the future to really put it to the test.
One bottle costs 90DKK (12Euro) and if you are interested, you can but it on their website
June’s month review was overall pretty diverse, and there were both a lot of hits, but also a few misses.
Have you ever tried any of these, and what do you think?
And maybe the most important question; what is your favorite face mist?
(help, I need some ideas 😉 )
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
