Liptember Beauty Box

Liptember is a campaign dedicated to educating the community on women's mental health whilst raising funds towards specific women's mental health research and support programs. Ladies everywhere are urged to buy a Liptember lipstick from the participating retailers and wear it through September to raise awareness for women's mental health. You can register online to fundraise as well.

If you are not as good at sticking to lipsticks or to getting people to donate there is another alternative to help the initiative. You can do what I did and purchase the Liptember Beauty Box. For just $30 you will receive over $250 worth of beauty products (AMAZING I KNOW!) and you can know that you you have donated to an amazing cause.

To entice you to participate I am going to share my unboxing of the Liptember Beauty Box to show just how much stuff is in these awesome little black boxes! So lets get right to it...


The Bonus Extras


Women's Health Magazine Spring Detox Edition, with the gorgeous Jessica Marais on the cover to get you set for spring!

$5 Off Voucher for Kardashian Beauty to get your hair looking a million bucks!

Liptember Merchandise, I received the wrist band, but there are a few different ones you could receive!


The Health Products


As I wouldn't usually buy vitamins or anything I was quite excited about these two little jars. The first one was the Swisse Ultiboost Hair Skin Nails which is specifically designed  to support collagen production and make your hair, nails and skin look fantastic! There were also the Life Space Broad Spectrum Probiotic which provides bacterial benefits throughout the digestive tract (fancy stuff that help you digestive system). Both are valued at over $20, so the box has already paid for itself!

The Skincare Products


There are some really great skincare products in this box. The first is the Avene Eau Thermal Spring which is absolutely amazing for sensitive skin, I spray it straight on my face whenever I get a stinging sensation or itchiness and it helps to soothe instantly. Added bonus it can be used on the whole face. There is also a sample of the Dr. Lewinn's Private Forumla Day Cream Moisturiser which is enriched with Vitamins A, B and E as well as Apricot Kernal and Sesame Seed oils for optimum levels of hydration. Dermaveen's Daily Nourish Lightly Tinted Moisturising Cream is a product I've never tried, but it sounds great for sensitive skin as it is free of parabens, fragrances and all the other stuff that irritates skin. The final skincare product is the Sukin Oil Balancing Purifying Gel Cleanser which is meant to be great for people with blemished skin (aka me!) so I'm excited to give this a go.

The Haircare Products


Haircare is an area I'm always nervous about because I never know what to buy, so I love getting boxes like this that have haircare in the to try. This one had the Klorance Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, which happens to be the only Klorane dry shampoo I've never tried, so hopefully it lives up to the rest of them! There is also another dry shampoo - the Seven Wonders Argan Oil Dry Shampoo which uses Argan Oil to refresh and revitalise your hair. There is also a 50mL tube of the John Frieda Intense After Colour Conditioner, I don't colour my hair, so this one might not suit me, but I'm sure I'll find someone who an use it! The last hair care product is the Schwarzkopf Crystal Shine Serum which smooths the hair surface and restores the shine in just 30 seconds (amazing!) 

Fragrances


There are two adorable fragrances in this box. The Lady Million by Paco Robanne and also the Reb'l Fleur by Rhianna. I haven't tried either before and haven't had a sniff yet, but they are both perfect sizes for travel or the handbag!

Nail Polish


I got sent two nail polishes, both of completely different colours! The first one was a Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish in the colour Island Firey. I love Sally Hansen nail polishes, they are long lasting and easy to use. There was also a W7 Nail Polish in a dark purple colour. I've never used W7 nail polish, but I love the dark colour!

Mascara


There was one mascara included in the box, the Rimmel Supercurler Black Mascara. Another product I've never tried, but it is meant to offer instant 90 degree curves that hold for up to 24 hours! So we'll see if it works.


The Lip Products


You can't have a Liptember box without some lip products!!! There were a whole variety in this box. There was the Ego QV Lip Balm, I love QV products so this will go down a treat! There was some Healthy Care Real Paw Paw Ointment, another great product for dry skin. The L'Oreal Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick looks amazing! The colour is so pigmented. Another W7 product, in the form of a lipstick this time. And last but not least in the lip products is the Maybelline Baby Lips and Cheek in Shimmering Bronze. I've never tried the Maybelline Baby Lips, but have heard amazing things about them.

The Other Stuff


(The category of things I didn't know how to categorise). There were a few other great products in the box. Nair Sensitive Mini Wax Strips for Face and Body are specially designed for sensitive skin needing a precise wax. I've never tried wax strips before, so I'm curious to give these a go. There were also some Moxie Sleepover Overnight Pads included as well. I used to use Moxie pads all the time and I love them, super comfortable and absorbable. Rediwn Coconut Balm is great for hydrating your skin, it can be used on the skin or lips, or anywhere where you have dry patches. There is also some Oral B 3D White Luxe Diamond Strong Paste which I am so pumped amount, I really need to whiten my teeth a little bit , so I'm hoping this one works! The last product was some Kids Goat Soap which is a gentle soap designed for dry, itchy skin, acne prone skin and sensitive skin. As I suffer from both eczema and acne, this soap is going to be awesome for me!


So as you can see, that $30 (plus postage) that you are essentially donating to Liptember goes a long way in the Liptember Beauty Box. If you haven't already, you need to get your hands on a box now! It is great value and supports an amazing cause!
