Review: June Look Bag

Thursday July 12th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Another catch up post, finally. I’ve had this bag for a month now and haven’t had chance to writing a blog entry about it. I’m currently having some issues with The Look Bag but I’m going to try and not let it affect my posts nor will I go too much into it until I reach a conclusion. I love The Look Bag enough to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope everything will be okay for this month and moving forward :) If not…then we’ll have to see.

June’s Look Bag is another one that I love! This is still one of my favorite services and one that I look forward to every month. The only issue I had in June was that the bag was shipped to my billing address instead of my shipping address for some reason. I know they had a bit of a problem getting everything on time in June so I wonder if that had something to do with it. While it’s not a huge problem, it’s still quite an inconvenience and I hope it was just a mistake. I’ve checked my account and my shipping address hasn’t changed.

Bag contents for June include:

  • Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream
  • Snowberry Cellular Regeneration Night Cream
  • Korres Eyeshadow Sunflower & Evening Primrose in 24 Gold
  • Prescriptives Lip and Eye Pencil Sharpener
  • Korres Natural Products Wild Rose Cream
  • Excuse the random strand of hair on the card. I didn’t notice it until I was editting the images. My hair tends to shed ^^;

    June’s bag theme is all about taking care of your skin during these hot, summer months. Products in this bag will help to hydrate and moisturize your skin.

    This month’s bag also had some added padding for shipping since it seems many people were receiving damaged products due to lack of packaging. The bags were shipped in an additional bubble wrap packing bag.

    Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $32.50 (3.4 fl oz)
    Look Bag Value: $2.39 (0.25 fl oz)

    Description: This unique, paraben free formula, containing plant derived ingredients, mimics the structure of the natural skin lipids and aids in the replenishment of the loss of natural skin lipids. This cream helps to boost the skin’s barrier function while protecting it from environmental stresses. The moisturizer leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.

    The sample is small but a little of this will go a long way so I see this lasting me several uses at the very least. What I love about this is that not only is it non-greasy, but it also is perfect for my skin type. The cream is easily absorbed into my skin. Within seconds, I can’t even feel it on my skin anymore.

    Snowberry Cellular Regeneration Night Cream [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $102.00 (1.7 fl oz)
    Look Bag Value: $8.40 (0.14 fl oz)

    Description: Refresh your skin every night! A truly great night cream should do much more than simply moisturize. Including the superfruit extract Wolfberry with its 19 amino acids and 21 vital minerals, Snowberry’s Cellular Regeneration Night Cream is designed to perfectly complement the Day Creams, by gently and naturally repairing skin, and replenishing lost nutrients. For this reason, Snowberry’s Night cream contains a very high proportion of marine glycoproteins, supported by a potent blend of natural antioxidants including Pomegranate, Meadowfoam and Melon Extract that together, help to neutralize the free radicals created by exposure to the sun, dietary and environmental pollutants. Suitable for all skin types, apply after the eye and face serums have been absorbed through the skin.

    Snowberry’s night cream is great to use before bed. The sample comes in a very cute packaging with an easy to use pump. The night cream is rather pricey but you get what you pay for?

    Prescriptives Lip and Eye Pencil Sharpener [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $3.00
    Look Bag Value: $3.00

    Description: –

    There’s not a whole lot to say about this, it’s a eye and lip pencil sharpener. I wish I hadn’t bought one from Sephora a while back given I never use it and now I have this one. It’s works well enough and the price isn’t bad but I’ve seen cheaper.

    Korres Eyeshadow Sunflower & Evening Primrose in 24 Gold [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $17.00 (0.06 oz)
    Look Bag Value: $17.00 (0.06 oz)

    Description: –

    This is a full sized sample of the product but it seems like it’s been discontinued. I don’t actually know the price of the eye shadow but from what I’ve gathered online, it was originally $17 and eventually went to a $6-7 sale price. The line also seems to be a Sephora exclusive and came in 6 different shades. 24 Gold is a light, shimmery bronze/champagne gold color. I love these eyeshadows from The Look Bag but I wish it wasn’t always discontinued :( You might still be able to find these on eBay.

    Korres Natural Products Wild Rose Cream [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $35.00 (1.4 oz)
    Look Bag Value: $17.00 (0.68 oz)

    Description: A cream that moisturizes and brightens the skin. This cream is formulated with a range of ingredients that moisturize and brighten the complexion. Wild rose oil, a natural source of vitamin C, helps repair the look of fine lines and skin discolorations. Imperata-cylindrica extract, derrived from a desert plant, is known for its ability to provide continuous moisturization by regulating the moisture equilibrium of the skin.

    The fifth item this month was based on your beauty profile answers. I’m not sure what I answered for mine but I am quite pleased with my product. Korres Natural Products is Greece’s fastest growing natural skincare company. I’m a bit cautious of rose scented items since a lot of the ones I come across either smell nothing like roses or the scent is too overpowering. This one is in the middle and I think it smells very much like a rose. The moisturizer has a semi-thick consistency but it’s absorbed into my skin fairly easily. I may consider purchasing a full sized product in the future. To use, apply to your face and neck after cleansing.

    Total Value: $47.79 (if the eyeshadow is worth $17)
