Beauty Army - December 2013 Shipment

It's been a while since I've ordered a Beauty Army shipment (; $12).  It's not that I don't like their service, it's just that I receive a lot of beauty product sampling subscriptions and the variety of samples offered to me by Beauty Army based on my profile, just haven't been items on my wishlist.  This month, the offering featured something new so here is some insight into what I received. Unlike previous shipments, this month's box was white with the same pink camouflage lining and came with a "Happy Holidays" banner around it.

In my December shipment, I received 3 deluxe samples and one full size kit as follows:

Emani - Foundation Primer & Hydrating Serum - Sample; Full size 0.84 oz./$28 - Velvety in texture, it absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores. Hydrating Primer Serum contains 10 different organic extracts to aid and prep your skin for an ultimate foundation application. It deeply nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin, creating a soft, luminous effect.  I had received this before but it was damaged in shipping so they sent a replacement.  How nice was that?

Skin Type: All skin types

For Best Results: Apply Primer Serum before powder based foundation. Use with moisturizer or in replacement of.

Overall rating: Booyah!  This was a great shipment.  It was nice of the Beauty Army Troops to send me replacement items for a previously damaged shipment.  Additionally, paying $12 for a full-sized kit that retails for $26 is a great deal! I hope Beauty Army continues to offer deals like this in the future.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your Kit, Gorgeous! We cant wait to hear your thoughts on the Acquarella Set! Please keep in mind, the Conditioner is a treatment designed to be used by itself not as a top or base coat.
