Handpicked Beauty Box – April Review

Handpicked Beauty Box – April Box 2017

Handpicked Beauty Box - April Box 2017

Handpicked Beauty Box is a fairly new beauty subscription box. This monthly box contains…wait for it…5 FULL SIZED beauty products!

I love receiving beauty subscription boxes. If you haven’t heard of beauty subscription boxes, they are boxes that contain 5-7 products from my experience.
I’ve subscribed to Ipsy, Sephora Play, Glossybox, Allure, and New Beauty Testtube just to name a few. Right now the only one that I’m faithfully subscribed to is New Beauty Testtube.
Almost all boxes above, contain sample or deluxe sample sized products.
Throughout the past 3 years that I’ve been subscribed to those boxes, I’ve collected quite a lot of products that normally end up in my big pink polka dotted Thirty-One deluxe utility tote just collecting dust until I have my friends come over and rummage through it.

That’s why I ended almost all of the beauty subscription boxes that I was getting. In the long run, I was just wasting my money.

In comes Handpicked Beauty Box
With Handpicked Beauty Box , you will receive 5 FULL SIZED beauty products each month for $39.99 plus shipping. The beauty contents that I’ve seen on some reviews have gone up to $150 and more worth of goodies! You can’t beat that for just $39.99!
Fellow blogger, Alexia, from Los Angeles Momma Blog is the beauty behind creating this subscription box. I’m always down to help another blogger and get the word out. I haven’t met her in person, but I’m incredibly proud that she is doing something that she’s passionate about and sharing her passion with all of us.

Let’s get into the April Handpicked Beauty contents…

Circ·Cell Skincare Daily Hydration 1.7 fl oz

Ciro Cell Daily Hydration
Circ·Cell Skincare Daily Hydration
 is an oil-free moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 43 sunscreen.
I’m a soccer mom that lives in Florida, so I have early mornings for game days and evening practices. Even though I’m Filipina, I can most definitely still burn in the sun if I don’t apply sunscreen. I’m also very picky when it comes to facial sunscreen. I don’t like the heavy white casted sunscreens, the potent super obvious aroma of sunscreens, or drying sunscreens.
I tested this baby out yesterday. After sitting in the glaring sun throughout the game and fishing afterwards, my face was not red and burnt!
This does have a slight sunscreen scent, but it’s not obvious. After you apply it on your face, the scent goes away.
It comes in a pump container that dispenses more than enough in one pump. I have a pretty big head, so that says something! You can control the amount that comes out so that’s a plus!
Retail price: $50 (BOOM! You’re already winning! There’s still 4 more products in the box.)

Luxe Botanics Marula Serum 30 ml/1 fl ozLuxe Botanics Marula serum

Luxe Botanics Marula serum provides nourishing hydration, effectively sealing in moisture and reducing signs of premature ageing, softens scars, and blemishes, and is non-comedogenic.
Ideal for combination, dry, ageing, and sensitive skin. You’ll gently massage 2-3 pumps onto your face and neck after cleansing. For optimal results shake well and use twice daily.
This baby smells SO AMAZING! It smells fresh and clean.
