Beautylish Lucky Bag Unboxing

Hello everyone, I’m really excited to write this post because I finally got a Beautylish lucky bag!! Beautylish do these every year and for the longest time I wanted one. I decided to finally get one last year and it’ s arrived (although very delayed). So in this post we will go through the box and whether it was worth it

Beautylish Lucky Bags are once a year (26th Dec) and they are filled with random products. You choose your skintone range (I went for Dark to Deep) and pay for an original box $75, or an XL box $150. Your box is guaranteed to be worth double of what you paid. I actually wanted the XL box but due to the pandemic, they were only shipping original boxes to the UK

My box was due to be shipped on 17th Jan 22 but this was delayed and was shipped a week later.

 I got

DANESSA MYRICKS BEAUTY ColorFix 24-Hour Cream Color Foil (Venus) – $18 USD

GOOD MOLECULES Gentle Retinol Cream- $8 USD

UNITS Orange Series Eye Set -$32 USD

UOMA BEAUTY Boss Gloss Liquid Marble (Cray Cray)-$22 USD

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Instant Eye Palette – Smokey Eyes Are Forever -$75 USD

WAYNE GOSS THE RADIANCE BOOSTING FACE PALETTE (Deep Cover)- $45 USD

Total- $200

Thoughts/Verdict

So the box is definitely worth more than double than what I paid for. In terms of the selection of products, I do not have any of these so that’s good. I am slightly disappointed with the Wayne Goss palette because of the shades. I think I can just about get away with this for bronzing/contouring but anyone darker than me wont. I personally don’t like dark purple lip glosses so I won’t be using UOMA beauty gloss.

The rest of the products are ok. I have a love/hate relationship with Charlotte Tilbury but I do like this palette. I’ve used Danessa Myricks Colorfix before and loved it. Good Molecules is a brand I love and always happy to get more brushes

Verdict

I think I would have preferred the XL box. Hopefully the XL box ships to UK this year otherwise I don’t think I would get another original bag. I definitely went into it with an open mind, I did want a Natasha Denona eyeshadow palette but I really like the CT one I got.

Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm Review

It’s been about 2 years since I fell in love with double cleansing and using balms as a first cleanse. I’ve been through quite a few (my top 7 will come soon) and the more I discover the deeper I fall

Good Molecules is still a fairly new brand to me, available in the UK via Beautylish, the brand have effective products at budget-friendly prices. I have tried a few of their items and I am yet to find something I strongly dislike. So with my love of cleansing balms and a good bargain in mind, I purchased the Instant Cleansing Balm when it first came out.

Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm is formulated with sea buckthorn & camellia oils as well as shea butter. It promises to instantly melt makeup and impurity and rinse away clean.

Experience

I’ve been using this for a few weeks now, every night as a first cleanse to remove makeup and the day’s grime. I always pair this with my trusty Primark makeup removing cloth. I have just over half of the balm, I think it will finish by the end of the month.

The balm is more of a solidified oil and instantly melts into an oil when massaged in my hands. I massage this over my skin and instantly begins to break down makeup. I use a fair amount and massage this all over my face giving myself a mini facial massage.  I emulsify with warm water, sometimes but most times I remove with the damp makeup remover cloth.  The scent of the balm reminds me of frankincense even though there is no mention of it in the ingredients. I personally don’t like the scent, it’s not unpleasant I just don’t like frankincense.

The balm does a good job removing makeup and very well at removing eye makeup and mascara. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, the oil is extremely lightweight and there is no oily residue left. It also rinses away easily and clean. I have experienced any irritation or clogged pores with the balm

Verdict: an excellent cleansing balm which is effective at removing makeup and budget-friendly. I personally don’t like the scent of this because it reminds me of frankincense which I also don’t like and for this reason alone I won’t repurchase. I will recommend it though because for the price its really good and if scent (something similar to frankincense) don’t bother you then definitely worth trying.

The scent is not unpleasant this is just a personal preference, it doesn’t linger but obviously, with massaging the balm all over your face you can’t really escape it lol. It comes with a spatula

It’s a very good balm and it’s effective at removing every bit of makeup. I have also used it for triple cleansing (twice with the balm and once with a face wash) and I did not experience any issues with that.

Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm is $15 on Beautylish
