It’s that time again! About once a year, I feature a fabulous Bonus Box from Rakuten- and awesome affiliate network bloggers can join. Every so often they reward their influencers with surprise packages, and this one definitely hit it out of the park!
LANCÔME BONUS BOX
Each box has a theme. We had the Bloomingdale’s box last year (and the year before), and this year we’ve got all the best sellers from Lancôme. Included is a mascara, fragrance, and two skincare products. A few of these I have tried before, but some were new. All of them, with the exception of one, were hits!
LANCÔME DÉFINICILS MASCARA
I’ve tried (and loved) quite a few Lancôme mascaras over the years, and this one was no exception. The formula is lengthening, and adds tons of volume. My lashes didn’t clump together, or look spidery, and there was zero flaking. The wand is a bit thinner than I prefer, but it’s great for reaching the inner corner, and for tiny bottom lashes.
LA VIE EST BELLE EAU DE PARFUME SPRAY
This is unlike my typical scents, but every time I wear it someone tells me I smell good – so it must be good! The notes include Iris, Vanilla, and Praline, which makes it warm and sweet. The wear time is quite long, lasting about 8 hours, and the bottle looks stunning on my vanity. In the summer months, I’ll reach for my florals and citrus scents, but for fall and winter this is a great option.
RÉNERGIE LIFT MULTI-ACTION LIFTING & FIRMING LOTION
I love love love this lotion! It’s got such a rich and creamy texture that my dry skin drinks up. Although it’s thick and ultra-hydrating, it’s not heavy or greasy, and it soaks in super fast. It contains sunscreen, so it’s great for daytime use, and it leaves behind a fresh scent that reminds me dove soap. Best of all, my skin feels baby smooth when I wear it.
A few side notes, the jar is pretty heavy (and glass), so I wouldn’t recommend it for travel. Also, it contains chemical sunscreen, not physical, so that’s something to keep in mind in case you’re sensitive to chemical sunscreens. I’m notoriously sensitive to Octinoxate, but thankfully that’s not in this moisturizer.
ADVANCED GÉNIFIQUE YOUTH ACTIVATING SERUM
On to the last product, which used to be a huge favorite of mine. The Génifique serum was a staple in my collection for years. It’s lightweight, hydrating, and is targeted for all skin types. It soaks into skin immediately, and goes to work to combat dryness, dullness, and fine lines. Sadly, my skin is now super dry and very sensitive (thank you rosacea and eczema) so I can no longer tolerate this. My dry patches inflamed, and my rosacea flared up. Boo!
For all who don’t have my crazy sensitive skin problems, I highly recommend this serum. The bottle is glass, and super chic, and the dropper applicator makes it so you get the perfect amount each time. I am so sad this won’t be part of my lineup yet again!
