My kid loves beauty boxes. I love them too, but as an older and more practical lady, I know that a beautiful box filled with colorful papers that we open with trembling from excitement hands, most of the bottles will accumulate in the bathroom as useless clutter.
But the money will be spent, while you could buy something actually useful and really cool with it.
So the kid and I started a tradition – I put together a monthly beauty box for her.
She needs a surprise – great, she doesn’t know what’s in these. She needs products specifically for her skin – great, mommy finds exactly what’s needed.
And, of course, everything should be adorable, otherwise why even bother with beauty boxes.
I think that using these cute little gifts, we can teach our daughters to care for their skin better than we had. Nobody, besides a rare exception, taught us how to do that 🙂
This is the September beauty box, which my kid received from me today, so now I can share the secret.
I decided that September is a very sunny and yellow month, so I put together this happy and bright beauty box.
Let’s see what interesting things are inside:
1. The most adorable two step sheet mask with Lazy Yold by Holika Holika. With a threatening name Holika Holika Gudetama Lazy & Easy All Kill Sheet, which hints that this mask will clear skin of all ickiness.
The “Lazy Yolk” or the original name Holika Holika Gudetama Lazy & Easy is a special sub brand for those ladies who don’t want to spend a lot of time on skincare, but still want to be beautiful. So the Lazy Yolk is always very lazy, but so pretty, right? 🙂 This sheet mask consists of two parts, a cleansing wipe and the sheet mask itself. This duo contains egg extract, which deep cleanses the hydrates the skin. It’s a fairly unique duo, because typically a sheet mask doesn’t come with a cleansing wipe. Both the wipe and the mask have a fresh, herbal scent. Cleansed skin should be first swept over with the wipe to remove any remaining makeup and oil. Then the sheet mask itself is applied. It’s very saturated. It’s recommended to keep it on for 10-20 minutes. Then remove and lightly pat the remaining serum into the skin. The skin is left very clean, hydrated and nourished.
Step1: Water, Methylpropanediol, PEG-32, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Egg Yolk Extract, Albumen Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Fragrance
Step2: Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Egg Yolk Extract, Albumen Extract, Milk Protein Extract, Honey Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Cyclohexasiloxane, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Isohexadecane, Polysorbate 80, Sorbitan Oleate, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitan Isostearate, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
2. Banana Hand Milk by TonyMoly. The kid loves this brand’s overnight mask with the same name, probably because of its banana scent.
I picked the milk and not the thick cream as a “purse” item, because why burden young skin with old-lady ingredients, and also because the kid works a lot and her hand treatments have to absorb quickly. Why the samples, you ask? I love getting hand creams in samples. Throw it in the purse, open when you need it, apply and throw away the packaging. It doesn’t take any room, and you don’t have to put the greasy-fingerprinted tube back in the purse. Also, you will always have fresh cream in a single-use packet.
Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Butylene Glycol, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract, Urea, Pentylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Milk Protein Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Disodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate,Phenoxyethanol, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Yellow 6 (CI 15985).
3. Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule sample. The kid already has this snail cream, so this is a trial of the ampoule.
If some especially stubborn monster pops up on the skin surface, this ampoule should be used as a spot treatment. It will dry out the offender, nourish the skin and renew it under the ickiness to prevent post-acne spots.
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycereth-26, Punica Granatum Extract, Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) Extract, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Trehalose, Copper Tripeptide-1, Human Ogliopeptide-1, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Cornus Officinalis Fruit Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Caprylyl Glyocol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tropolone, Sodium Polyacrylate, Adenosine, Coptis Japonica Extract, Disodium EDTA
4. Blackhead Clear Nose Pack by Nature Republic. I couldn’t not buy this gentle, pastel-colored elephant (if the combination of “gentle elephant” is even possible). Besides, the kid actively uses these types of patches so there’s no such thing as too many of them.
5. ETUDE HOUSE Tropical Pineapple Shower Ball will never get boring! Exfoliates well without damaging the skin, dries well without accumulating such parasites as bacteria in its bright and soft nethers.
That was a fun September beauty box with different cute, but very useful things.

I hope I gave a new idea to mom who really want their daughters to have beautiful, and, most importantly, healthy skin.
