My Two Cents
Beauty Protector
I am in love with this product. I spray it in after I shower, and it instantly detangles my hair. I blowdry my hair as usual, and don’t need to apply any antifrizz products because my strands are already tamed! It also doesn’t seem to weigh my hair down, and the scent is just amazing. I will definitely be purchasing a full size!

Cargo Hybrid Touch-up Powder
While this a product I never would have purchased on my own, I can see myself using it daily. The bronzer is just slightly darker than my skintone, but since it is shimmery, it still works for contouring.  I can mix it with the mattifying powder to create a shimmery powder in my skintone, or just use the mattifying powder to get the shine off my face. Since I received a full-size, I don’t think I’d need to repurchase any time soon.

Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face
I really like the way this soaks into my skin. That’s where the buck stops though. I do not like the scent, which truly smells like cucumber, and it doesn’t seem to do anything special enough for my face. I don’t think the texture is worth suffering the scent, so I would not purchase this in full size.

Joie Folle de Joie eau de parfum
I have not had a chance to try this yet.

Twistband Hair Tie
So in my world, a hair tie is a hair tie. And this is a hair tie =)

    • Hi Louise! I’ve added my reviews above, I just haven’t tried the perfume yet because I keep forgetting and I don’t want to mix scents =) The touch-up powder is full size – it looks like all the Cargo products sent out this month were full size (touch-up powder, blush, lip gloss). This was my first month with BB and I’m truly satisfied!
