Peeked at the contents of this month’s holiday-themed Sparkle and Shine box and noticed one of the products I had my eye on since the preview video. It’s the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray, along with the Hello perfume vile, an aqua twistyband, Embryolisse miracle cream, and LAQA lip pencil 🙂 With some loose curls still intact from the Thairapy company styling my hair with the Tri-Curl Clipless Curling Iron curlers at Bendels, I can apply this sea salt spray to enhance the curls.
Just opened the Sparkle and Shine holiday box for the month of December 🙂 Super happy to have this one just in time for the holidays and it’s actually the six month anniversary of monthly subscriptions with this company. On the seventh month in January, I’ll have a little anniversary promotion in my inbox from Birchbox. Aside from the products in the preview of samples, I also have a little sticker shaped like the mobile application that cleans your phone also, pretty nifty 🙂
Discovered the LAQA & Co. Lil Lip Pencil actually separated during shipment so I just requested a new one in Bossy Boots. I put on a little of the Ring of Fire lipstick that came off the sides and it looked quite darker than the Stila lip stain from an earlier shipment. Hello perfume from Harvey Prince smells quite youthful and pleasant, lighter than my taste as I prefer more musty and exotic scents. It comes with Meyer lemon, mandarin grapefruit, forsythia, and plumeria ingredients.
Almost prefer the scent of the sea salt spray to the perfume, as it smells like an ocean of sweet cream. It seems there’s quite a lot of blue in this month’s box, from the casual spray to the misty blue twistyband and then accents of the Embryolisse lait-creme concentrate. Concentrate with lait-creme applies onto skin smoothly without a noticeable scent, light and breathable.
