This month, I’m bringing something new to LeeNG Beauty with the unboxing of the Adore Box. It’s similar to IPSY, but it’s not limited to just beauty products. Adore Box is a beauty and lifestyle subscription service that sends out four to ten hand-selected products in each box for a minimum of $15.00 USD. In addition to beauty products, they also include jewelry, accessories and clothing (depending on the subscription plan you choose), and edibles. You can also choose the size and frequency of your box. 

Josie Maran Cosmetics' 'Dyani' Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss (Full-Size $19.99 USD)



The first item is the 'Dyani' Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss from Josie Maran Cosmetics. Founded by supermodel, Josie Maran, this brand uses a hundred-percent Pure Argan Oil as a key ingredient in their products because of its healing and conditioning properties. The Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss delivers a glossy shine and a conditioning, non-sticky formula for healthy-looking, hydrated lips.

The shade I received, Dyani, is a dusty pink in the tube but looks like a pink nude when applied. It’s not a full coverage lip product, but it has enough pigment to give your lips some color.

BIOAQUA’s Collagen Nourish Lips Membrane ($5.99 USD)



The next item is the Collagen Nourish Lips Membrane from BIOAQUA. It’s a gel lip mask infused with collagen that moisturizes and aids in minimizing wrinkles around the mouth. The packet containing the mask is mostly written in Chinese (possibly Japanese based off a couple characters), but the Adore Box does come with English instructions.  

How you would use this lip mask is that you would apply it to the mouth area, then let it sit for twenty to thirty minutes. Because the lip mask is made of a gel, your body heat will cause the mask to dissolve and be absorbed into the skin. 

Once applied, it does have the tendency to slide around, but I found that it sticks to my face well enough that I could walk around to do things without worrying that it might fall off. 

Dermalogica’s Active Moist (Full-Size $60.00 USD)



The third item is the Active Moist from Dermalogica, a brand founded by the same person that created the International Dermal Institute (the gold standard for postgraduate body and skin therapy training). It’s one of the top choices of skincare professionals. 

Dermalogica’s Active Moist is a lightweight, daily moisturizer that’s oil-free. Its thin, light consistency allows it to be readily absorbed into the skin leaving it feeling hydrated, but without the greasy sensation of there being something on your face. Recommended for those with oily skin, Active Moist also contains a combination of plant extracts that improve skin texture and superficial dehydration. 

LAW Beauty Essentials' 'A Lot of Spice' Nail Polish (Full-Size $9.00 USD)



And the last item is the 'A Lot of Spice' Nail Polish from LAW Beauty Essentials, a vegan and toxin-free nail polish brand. Having a high-shine and chip-resistant formula, this nail polish makes for an application that looks good and lasts.

The shade I received, A Lot of Spice, is a peachy-coral that also comes across as neon. It looks like a light pink in my swatch, but it's very peachy and BRIGHT in actuality, which I'm a total sucker for. This type of shade is hard to find in a nail polish, so whenever I see one like this, I'll snatch it up.
