Red Box

A Lacey Perspective: Redbox

There are tons of subscriptions services out there for beauty lovers, but as someone still learning her way around what are her favorite beauty items I am always frustrated with tiny samples. How do I really see the change in my skin? If I use this foundation just once will I really understand how wearable it really is? These types of questions always seem to pop up.

When Redbook Magazine asked me to try their Red Box Beauty box filled with full sized items I jumped at the chance!

The items in this box really surprised me! Some I have never used before, others I have tried in sample-size form. Here is what was in there:

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure – What shocked me the most of these three was the ‘3D Gel Shine Top’. It hardened like a gel but without using a UV. Also, there is actually 7 benefits in that one bottle (base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip-resistant and gel shine). Crazy right?! Definitely look forward to trying this with other polishes I own.

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant – I have tried this before I highly recommend it! It is my go-to day to day. It keeps me dry and confident in any situation.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Liquid Exfoliant – I have recently fallen hard for liquid exfoliants. They are so gentle to the skin and yet you feel the difference in texture in your skin instantly. This one from Paula’s Choice was no different.

Vaseline Serum Advanced Relief – This stuff smells amazing! Rose, amber and vanilla soaks right into your skin without feeling too heavy.
