Orglamix Glam Box: March 2017 Tropical Getaway + 25% Off

Things have been hella busy over here.  My new book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale” is being released on Tuesday, May 30th!  I swear to you all I still don’t really believe it.  I’m spending the long weekend trying to get caught up on all my writing and on the never-ending renovation of my time warp house, but today I’ve carved out some time to get back to my boxes.

To kick off the Memorial Day weekend I’ve got the March Orglamix Glam Box with its “Tropical Getaway” theme.  “Spring break is around the corner and it’s time to get beach-ready for your getaway!  Whether you’re planning a spring fling with a beau, a tropical adventure with the girls, or a virtual vacation get your glow on with these head-to-toe tropical beauty favorites.”

Sounds perfect as we head into summer.  If you’d like to try out a box of vegan, cruelty free natural beauty products for yourself use the coupon code VEGAN to save 25%.


Pineapple + Papaya Brighten Instant Glow Mask
(Estimated Retail: $38.00)
Description: ”A brightening mask featuring pineapple and papaya enzymes to naturally illuminate, smooth, and exfoliate skin for an instant glow. Illuminate and energize skin with natural enzymes.  This exfoliating mask features tropical enzymes, aloe, and glycerin to brighten and exfoliate naturally, giving skin a fresh new glow.  Continual use provides increased radiance, softness, and a brightened appearance.”
Verdict: Hit!
I like that this is an exfoliating mask that you just need to massage into your face.  No hard work here, just apply it at night or wear under your moisturizer in the day.  The fruit ingredients also definitely fit the tropical theme.


Monoi de Tahiti oil

(Estimated Retail: $28.00)
Description: “A beauty oil for an aromatic, sun-kissed sheen.  Monoi de Tahiti oil conjures the luxury and tradition of French Polynesia.  The bud of the tiare flower is soaked in the finest coconut oil and then blended for a translucent chocolate shimmer.  The lightly tinted formula has tiny gold flecks that make skin look smooth and luminous.  Try it on arms, legs, and shoulders—and rub ab it on dry strands to keep them hydrated and shiny.”
Verdict: Gift
The moment I got this I thought of a friend who would love it.  I’m adding it to her birthday gift.


Tiare Mahoi Bath bomb

(Estimated Retail: $5.00)
Description: “…This bath bomb feature an intoxicating blend of Tiare.  This bath bomb creates a beautiful bath art leaving the bath water a beautiful pink.” “
Verdict: Like!
I can’t wait to finish my renovations and be able to use my bathtub.  I can be all fancy pants while I bathe in pink water filled with Tahitian flowers.  It can help distract me from the fact that my bathtub is 1970s yellow.


Tropical Getaway – Solid Perfume

(Estimated Retail: $9.00)
Description: ”Devastatingly feminine, dangerously flirtatious, – this blend of white flowers hsolud be a controlled substance. FI you love gardenia, you need to own this – it is so incredibly fresh and true that it smells like you just pined a newly cut gardenia in your hair.  Lush, but clean.  A swipe of this perfume will have people leaning in when they speak to you!”
Verdict: Love!
Orlgamix solid perfumes are pretty much the only scents I get in subscription boxes that I can wear.  They are always fresh and natural smelling and for once I can have a variety of perfumes at my disposal.  I can’t stress enough how awesome solid perfumes are.  Not only are they ace for travel, but I keep one in my commuter bag to use for emergencies. Get stuck next to someone on the bus who smells like sardines and wet dog, put a little solid perfume on your upper lip.  It can be a lifesaver.


Coconut Colada – Natural Eyeshadow

(Estimated Retail: $12.50)
Description: ”A soft shimmer eye shadow that softly illuminates lids.  This eyeshadow radiates an unusual alchemy combining the classic, neutral beige notes with war golden accords of fiery sunrise – scattering of gold, vermillion and peach to create a voluptuously gorgeous color.  This shimmering composition will become your go to favorite to astonish and captivate for all-over lid color, highlighting smudging and more.  This intoxicating shade is a sexy blend, inspired by lingering hours spend by the seaside.”
Verdict: Love
This is such a great neutral everyday shade that gives a sun-kissed, candlelight type glow.  Really easy for anyone to wear and perfect for summer outings when you want just a touch of color.

OVERALL

Verdict:
Love!
To start, the value on this box is amazing.  I receive this for free in order to review it, but the regular cost is $29 and the estimated retail comes out to $92.50.  Taking these type of items out of a sub box context and putting them into a boutique that would feature natural and cruelty free beauty products, you’d spend so much more than $29 to get half of what you do in this one box.

As for the items included, I thought they fit the tropical theme perfectly.  They had a nice variety of skincare, scents and makeup and I think they’d appeal to a wide variety of subscribers.  More than any sub I receive, I think Orglamix does a great job of nailing their themes and making them fit the season.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
