Item 1: “Sally Hanson Salon effects French Mani” involves some getting use to with the application process. However, if applied properly, this French Mani will last 3-5 days with regular water/soap usage. The retail price for this item is around $9.99. The overall Mystery Box costs $10.00. Thus, you are already returning your investment in this one item and the rest of the items are like a bonus. Rating: 3/5


Item 2: “Lasting Smiles Organic Lip Balm” is very moisturizing while feeling light on your lips rather than greasy. The flavor is citrusy with a passion fruit/mango scent. All ingredients are organic or fair trade and a portion of your purchase helps with cleft lip and palate surgeries. The retail price is around $4.99. Rating: 5/5


Item 3: “Dancin Goat” hand/body lotion is extremely moisturizing. It has an aromatherapy fragrance which leaves you feeling relaxed. The retail cost for a full size bottle (8 oz.) is $17.99. A 2oz. bottle is provided but I could not find a retail price for that size. Rating: 4/5


Item 4: A small sample of “Marsk Mineral Eye Shadow” was also included. The color provided was Vanilla Frosting and has a good pigmentation for a light shadow. It has a moderate wear time but it is not an ‘all day’ eye shadow. It will wear off eventually. Also, I enjoy a little glitter in my eye shadows (not to much glitter but a little can look cute), and this shadow does provide that right balance of pigment and sparkle. The retail price for a full size 1.2g shadow is $22.50 (a small version was included in the Mystery box but I could not find a retail price for that size). Rating: 4/5


Item 5: “Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool” actually works!!! I used it on a nearly empty lotion bottle and it got into all the small corners, providing an additional use of product. Also, the rubber tip makes it very easy to clean this tool after use. The retail price is $4.99. Rating 5/5
