Today it’s time to work through one of the many awesome boxes I have piled up, since I’m going through the literal boxes piled up all over my house. Moving sucks, but you never really remember how bad it is until you actually have to do it again. Plus this is all going on while I try to get folks to review my new book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale”. I’m not sure what to start bribing people with since I have no money. I have some beauty products though. Do you think offering moisturizer and hair oil would work?
Anyway, it’s time to forget my responsibilities for a moment and have some fun with one of my favorite boxes.
The May Orglamix Glam Box had a “Tea Party” theme. “It seems like a new beauty craze crops up practically every day, but there’s a reason some have staying power. And in the case of tea, as a beauty staple, that staying power has lasted a very very long time. Tea is the world’s most ancient remedy. It was discovered thousands of years ago in China, where people cultivated its use as a medicine, as a ritual, as an art form. Turns out the world’s most popular beverage has plenty of beauty perks. Tea makes for a great ingredient because it has wonderful benefits for the skin. It’s packed with powerful antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits, plus it’s effective and gentle, making it perfect for all skin types.”

Multi Tea Organic Facial Cleanser
(Estimated Retail: $9.00)
Description: ”Organic green tea, white tea and rooibos tea, organic neem, DMAE, vitamins, and organic aloe vera make up this mild cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils or alter is pH….”
This cleanser includes natural oils so it’s right up my alley. I’m interested to see how adding tea to the mix effects the cleanser.
Rooibos Organic Eye Cream
(Estimated Retail: $18.00)
Description: “Rooibos tea is a red tea made from a South African red bush and it’s known to have even more antioxidant benefits than green tea. Enhanced with hyaluronic acid, clanedula, rooibos, pomegranate extracts and evening primrose, this eye cream diminishes the appearance of puffs, under eye circles…”
I love eye creams because even when I get really lazy about my skin care routine, I can usually stick to at least using an eye cream. If you do nothing besides wear sun screen and apply a good eye cream regularly, you’ll really make a huge difference in how your skin ages. I’m excited to try this out and love the generous size.
Sweet Tea Liplux Lip Tint
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Description: “A beautiful delicate pink, this lip tint adds lot so hydration and shine to your lips. Made with coconut, canola, olive and grapeseed oils, this rose gold lip tint is delicately flavored with sweet tea…”
Verdict: Not quite right for me.
First, let me just say this feels amazing going on and it gives a really saturated color. The only problem is for me it’s orange on my skin tone, not pink. But this would look amazing on somebody with tan or olive skin. I can really see it giving that bronze JLo type glow.
Tea for Two Natural Eyeshadow
(Estimated Retail: $12.50)
Description: ”…Our golden metal crush eye shadow is electric, made from pigment-saturated powders that apply flawlessly dry or wet.”
This shade has a really pretty shimmer that is lovely during summer. A little goes a long way.
Lemongrass Bath Bomb
(Estimated Retail: $5.00)
Description: ”…Take a dip with this zippy green and yellow fizzer to feel instantly energized! Next time you’re feeling sluggish, simply pop one into your bath for a sunny dose of invigorating lemon-grass, bergamot essential oils and mesmerizing vibrant green waters. Organic shea butter leaves you with soft, hydrated skin, while good ol’ fashioned baking soda cleanses and keeps you feeling fresh..”
There will come a day where I will have time to actually sit in a bathtub and enjoy my giant stockpile of bath products. I’m sure I’ll enjoy this bathbomb then.
I receive this for free in order to review it, but the regular cost is $29 and the estimated retail value came out to $56.50. That’s a bit lower than past Orglamix boxes, but still a good value. This had a nice summery feel and I think all the products would appeal to most subscribers. The only reason it’s not a “love” for me is because the lip tint wasn’t a match for my complexion. The product itself though feels so nice and goes on so smoothly that I’d love to try another in a different shade.
