// PR SAMPLE / SUBSCRIPTION BOX //
Let’s have another unboxing of a summer themed box before it has passed completely :D I’m happy to have the chance to show you the content of the InStyle Box Summer Edition 2017, which was provided to me for reviewing purpose. Like the Instyle Box I showed last time >>here<<, also this box was packed heavily with awesome products in my opinion. This post will be picture-heavy due to the loads of products that were included, my apologies in advance >_<
As the name already suggest this box is dedicated to summer and to products that bring us in a summer mood and are useful during this season. And as if they knew, they already predicted the ups and downs of summer in Germany. You must know that the weather here is not really reliable in summer, so our beauty routine has to be adapted to every possible situation :D
That said I will start with the beauty products first:
OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner
These travel sized bottles of the OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner are perfect for vacation. I already bought them last year and liked the products a lot. They make the hair smooth and manageable even in dry climate. They contain argan oil of Morocco, which also protects the hair from UV rays and heat damage, by giving deep nutrition. I used both of these during my vacation and it was the perfect size for the 2 weeks showering daily. These are available from your drugstore or amazon. The fullsize retails for around 8 €.
Douglas Make-Up Mattissim Lipstick
The Mattissim Lipstick by Douglas comes in the summer color called “Senorita”, an orange hued red shade. This liquid lipstick has a velvet matte texture without stickiness. A soft doe-foot applicator helps to create your look. I love the lid, which is covered in black velvet. It retails for 9.99 €.
Aqua Colonia Pink Pepper & Grapefruit
Solid soap becomes very handy during vacation time. Usually, I’m using liquid soap at home, but the benefit of having solid soap that cannot spill inside your luggage is definitely a plus here. The Aroma Soap from Aqua Colonia in Pink Pepper and Grapefruit is a perfect scent for warm weather. The spiciness of the better together with the freshness of grapefruit make a perfect combination. The soap retails for 7.38€.
Treaclemoon Soft Watermint Rain
I have resisted to buy this new line called Watermint Rain from Treaclemoon for weeks, since it released and luckily the InStyle Box contains the Body Milk of this line. This refreshing body milk is absorbed quickly into the skin and is easily to spread. I love the packaging design with the mint color and the mushrooms. You can get the products from your local drugstore or amazon (around 10 €).
Comodyness Urban Cosmetics Self-Tanning Body Glove
I need to try this yet but is sounds very interesting, since it is a glove and not a spray or cream. It is free from parabens and allergens and promises a natural and uniform body color for all skincolors. Maybe I can get rid of my tan lines with this glove. One piece retails for 5 €. You can get a set of 3 for 15 €.
L’Oréal Botanicals Fresh Care Geranium Glow-Elixir
A perfect fit, considering the fact that I received shampoo and conditioner from Botanicals Fresh Care in my previously unboxed Barabara Box! The product comes in a spraying bottle and contains oil from Geranium, soy and coconut to help your hair fix its glow. The products from Botanicals are without parabens, silicons and dyes. The spray can be used on toweldry hair or in between. It retails for 9 €.
Avon Mark. Gel Shine Nail Enamel
This nail polish from Avon gives your nails a gel-look without the need of an UV lamp. The shade “Fabulous” is a dark pink, perfect for summer. There are 33 colors available for the Mark. Gel Shine Nail Enamels.
Vandini Hydrating Face Mask
This Face Mask containing hyaluronic acid and caviar helps to retain hydration of the skin and makes your skin smoother and plumped. Each sachet can be used for two applications. I haven’t tried products from Vandini yet but I’ve heard good things about it. Looking forward to try this mask. This mask retails for 6€.
Let’s turn to the fashion and accessories products from the box:
Rapunzel of Sweden Magic Rubberbands
I love these kind of curly hairbands. And since you never can have enough hairbands I was super happy to see 5 colors of these included in the box. The brand Rapunzel of Sweden was new to me, but they are popular for hair extensions in Sweden. The set of 5 retails for 3.99€.
Levi’s is not only a brand for denim, but also do they now offer pins. After the comeback of patches on clothing pins seem to be the next big thing to decorate your favourite jacket. The box included two pins from Levi’s.
Flamingo Luggage Tag
Another of my favourites from this box: I love this flamingo luggage tag. It was my perfect companion during my travel and I had it attached to my suitcase all time during the weeks in Mexico.
The food item in the summer box was Corn Chico Popcorn Magic Mix. I love popcorn, and this one was no exception and gone in a minute :D
What I really like about the InStyle Box is the versatility and the thorough magazine with the information. The magazine also includes a bunch of coupons for various online shops and even a Starbucks Coupon. The box really has a great value for its price. The Box is available on shop.instyle.de for 29.90€ and comes with 3 e-paper versions of the InStyle magazine. The InStyle Box is released every three months.
