I don't generally get inordinately excited about mascaras, but this one has definitely piqued my interest, and it's a generous full size tube so I have plenty of time to get really acquainted with it! I'm so happy this was included in this box, plus they even included a $1.00 off coupon to give to a friend or to use toward the repurchase!

I love deep conditioning hair treatments, and frankly my long curly hair can't get enough nourishing deep conditioners. While this is a full size packet intended for a single use, I suspect that I will be able to get nearly two treatments out of it.

You already know that I love love love lip balms, and I really like the size and flavor of this one. It is super moisturizing and feels fabulous on the lips. It leaves my lips soft, smooth and supple. Add to this that it makes a great base for lipstick and I think that it's fair to say that this is a hit! It went straight into my makeup bag, and will likely warrant a separate review.

4) Anna Naturals Glowing Mama Walnut Face & Body Scrub (Sample size. Retail $10.99 for 4 oz.): Our Glowing Mama Walnut Face & Body Scrub will leave your skin feeling smooth and clean. Luxuriously thick and creamy, you can detoxify and exfoliate your skin gently — and with infused botanical extracts, your skin will be left soft and moisturized, not sensitive and dry.
