A peak into the Cosmania BeautyBox 2015

 

For the second year BeautyBox collaborated with the shop Cosmania to assemble an amazing box filled with products from top brands in the beauty industry. And for the second time I couldn’t pass the opportunity since I had loved last year’s box (here), and I wasn’t disappointed!
The Beautybox contains 9 products of which one full size, ranging from skin care to hair and body care and one item of makeup. Let’s take a close look to the products.

This Works Sleep Plus+ Pillow Spray (5 mL – 5€) is a strongly scented spay that uses aromatherapeutic blends to aid sleep. It smells strongly of lavander and is indeed really soothing. I can’t stop smelling my hand (where I tried it on).

Cowshed Horny Cow Seductive Bath and Shower Gel (30 mL – 4.50€) contains rose absolute and essential oils of patchouli and cinnamon, for a botanical paraben and sulfate free formula. I love these samples to bring to the gym and am glad to have another one. It smells divine and the name is definitely a hit!

Inglot Freedom Sustem Palette + Eyeshadow (fullsize – 14€) I adore Inglot eyeshadows and have a few of them already. The shade I received is a medium brown with fine gold shimmer, a great everyday shimmer. I would however have preferred to receive two refills without the palette for the same value, since Inglot palettes are quite bulky and I usually use more than 2 shadows for my looks.

Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser (29 mL – 4.50€) with glycolic acid and herbal extracts is something I’m really excited to use now that the my tan is fading and my skin needs some care to get back its glow.

Mario Badescu Super Collagen Mask (13 mL – 6.50€) is a Kaolin and Collagen based mask that  both targets impurities and improves the skin texture. Another great product from the brand to try.

Stemcream Natural Moisturizer (25 mL – 7.50€) is a jolly-type cream for face, hands and body that feels super soft and nourishing and comes in a really convenient tin that I’ll immediately through in my bag. Bonus point: it smells amazingly herbally and lushious!

Paula’s Choice Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum (7 mL – 13€) is a “supercharged anti-aging treatment containing stabilized retinol, potent antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients”. Sounds like another skincare superhero that I’m very curious to try since I heard so much about the brand, and their Beautypedia is one of my go-to sources for skin care research.

SachaJuan Hair Repair (100 mL – 14€) is an intensive hair treatment that smells lush! Contains “Ocean Silk Technology” to repair damaged and stressed hair and leave is silky and healthier and I’m all about that hair.

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil (5 mL – 4.50€) contains a mix of essential oils to nourish and firm the body. To a first try on my arm it feels luxurious and absorbs really quickly. Another one for the gym bag it is!

Overall I find this box quite similar to last year’s but brought a step up with even better products. I keep being skeptical about subscription boxes because I don’t find myself using even half of the things I receive, but with this one I already have a use for all of the products! Definitely a winner, plus now my arms smell divine from trying on everything.

The Cosmania Beautybox retails for 24.95€ and is a limited edition. There are a few left in stock and I sincerely recommend you to pick it up while you can if you’re interested in these products!
