This is the last of a six part individual beauty product review series of Beauty Box 5. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service where for $12 a month, they will send you 4 or 5 samples of beauty products made by a wide variety of brands. You can find out more by visiting their site at http://www.beautybox5.com/.
The final product I received was a sample of a face and body exfoliating towelette called Easy Peeling, New Face Effect that is made by Comodynes. Comodynes is a company from Spain that makes all kinds of cosmetic wipes. Their products are all hypoallergenic and have been tested by dermatologists. The company is environmentally aware and uses packaging that is 100% recyclable. Their products are all easy to use, fast and convenient, practical, efficient and economical. Products include wipes for everything from makeup removal, to self-tanning formula, to T-Zone masks, to exfoliating wipes and many more. For a full list of products you can go to their American website (the first site I noticed is in Spanish) at http://www.comodynes.net/.
As I mentioned, I received a sample of their Easy Peeling, New Face Effect face and body exfoliating towelettes. Since I was only able to use this product one time, I cannot give you an accurate review of how well it works over time, but I will describe the product for you. The purpose of this towelette is to eliminate dead skin cells and deeply cleanse pores leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth and looking renewed. Comodynes also says that these towelettes will boost the action of treatment creams and self-tanning products. These towelettes work to exfoliate in two ways, both by the texture of the towelette and by the formula on the towelette which contains active natural ingredients to accelerate the renovation of your skin.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the foil pack was the aroma. It was a light, clean scent that was in no way overpowering. The towelette was wet with a cold, slightly sticky feeling formula, but what I noticed most of all was the texture on the business side of the towelette. It was covered with hundreds of these tiny raised nodules.
I was very careful when using it not to apply too much pressure as I am sure that would have done more harm than good. I first used it on my face, gently rubbing in a circular motion with the bumpy side all over my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, carefully avoiding the area around my eyes. I then continued down to my neck, then went on to test it on my arms and shoulders. When I was finished, my skin was moist with the formula. I have to say that it left my skin feeling slightly sticky everywhere I had rubbed for about 3 or 4 minutes, until the wetness had evaporated. I did not enjoy that feeling at all. However, once my skin had dried completely, it no longer felt sticky. In fact, it felt pretty smooth and soft. And while the scent was quite noticeable while my skin was wet, it did fade almost all the way, leaving just a hint of freshness. My skin also looked clean and bright, and you could see some dirt on the towelette that had been removed.
Again, I would much prefer to use this product for awhile before I decide how well it works in the long run. I will say that I do like the way my skin looks and feels after just that one use. I can also see how these would be very handy to carry around with you for whenever you wanted to freshen up. You can find these, plus all their other products on their website at http://www.comodynes.net/. As far as price is concerned, they seem a little steep: an 8 pack will run you $12.99. I can say that were I to use this product for awhile, and it continued to do what it did today, then I think it would be well worth it!
So this concludes my individual product review series on the items I received from Beauty Box 5. All in all, I am very satisfied. If you love discovering and trying new beauty products then you would really enjoy Beauty Box 5. If you still are not sure, or if you do decide to join, here are a few more facts. The type of beauty product samples you can expect to receive include makeup, skin care, fragrances, hair care, body care, smile care, nail products, beauty tools and more. Remember that each monthly box will contain different samples every month, and they always provide a card with the box describing each product along with the retail price. If you get a sample you love, just visit the Brands page https://www.beautybox5.com/brands.php and click on that brand to get all the information you need to order. You can also find tips and tricks on how to use your samples on that page as well. And if you find you are not happy, you can cancel your subscription at any time; just remember to cancel before your next payment is processed so you don’t receive the next months box. In my opinion, Beauty Box 5 is a fun way to try new products before you buy them for full price. I don’t know about you, but I would much prefer to try a product out before paying money for something I may not like and may not be able to return for a refund.
