A Fresh Start with Essence Beauty Box
The Essence Beauty Box is making it so easy for me to travel light! Whenever I'm away on a work trip or a weekend out of town, I now grab all the goodies that I've been sharing with you all from this box. I love how small and compact each item is. The Essence Beauty Box never disappoints when it comes to qualities and brands. That makes me feel good when I'm traveling--it's like I'm being pampered! Have a look at what's inside:
1. Jane Carter Solution Seal & Shine
This product is made to provide your dry, curly, and natural hair with shine. It said to aid in reducing dryness in your hair. It contains Jojoba, Soy oil, Shea Butter and Mango Butter. I'll more than likely use this to seal my hair after I've moisturized it. It's been awhile since I've tried this line and I'm super excited to revisit.
2. Earth's Nectar Coconut Curls
What's funny is that as a kid I hated coconut. I think that really came from me trying Almond Joy candy bars and despising them. Lol! It was a texture thing I think. Now, I can't get enough of coconut. Especially in hair products. Coconut Curls is a lavish moisturizing cream that is said to detangle, soften, and smooth away frizz and fly aways. If you didn't know, Coconut oil helps protect hair from damage when combing and blow drying. I'm definitely using this the next time I wash these curls.
3. Paula's Choice Resist Vitamin C Spot Treatment
I used this the other night before bed and I'm excited to see a difference in my skin. A few years ago I had a horrible breakout. Things have pretty much cleared now, but you can still see a few spots of discoloration in certain areas of my skin without foundation. This spot treatment uses 25% stabilized vitamin C to reduce stubborn brown spots, sun damage, and post acne discolorations for smoother, even toned skin. PERFECT. Hopefully in conjunction with my spot correcting moisturizer this will give me the results I'm looking for!
4. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stick
Perfect to stash in the tote and carry on. This is definitely an oldie but goodie and a MAJOR KEY. I grew up on this stuff. My mom used it and her skin is absolutely flawless. Use this on the face, body, chapped lips. It's great for sensitive skin and can be used regularly to prevent stretch marks. You better get into it.
5. BioDerma Sebium H20
I'm excited about this because I almost purchased some micellar water the other day. Glad I waited. This is the first make-up removing micellar water for combination or oily skin that actually mimics the natural composition of skin. This will come in handy when removing eye makeup at the end of the day. I love my makeup wipes but the smearing that happens when I remove my mascara can be annoying.
6. Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick
I would definitely suggest using this stick if you are a beginner at applying shadows. What's cool about this item is that primer is included in the formula! Just swipe on the color and boom. There you go. Easy.
