For April I chose the Model Co privé box. I have liked everything I have previously tried from Model Co and when I saw the full sized BB cream I was like 'SOLD!!!`
There were only two items in this privé Topbox: a lipgloss and a BB cream.
BB Plus Cream Daily All-in-One Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF30 Medium
Full size: $22/35ml
Combining serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF 30-UVA and UVB SPF, BB Plus covers blemishes and imperfections, helps maintain hydration, corrects signs of dullness or fatigue and helps protect the skin from UV rays.
Sweet that we got a full size product! I got the shade Medium which on first glance looked pretty orange to me. But it smoothed out all right on my skin. The formula was a little more liquidy than I am used to for a BB cream. The coverage is quite light on me. Any redness is evened out but I can still see my freckles and any darker imperfections so a concealer is a necessity for me. I have been wearing this to work all week and I really like it for a more natural not done up look.
Shine Ultra Lip Gloss – Fairy Floss
Full size; $20/4ml
Lend a luxe touch to your beauty look with this reflective shimmering gloss that glides on smoothly for a non-sticky, long lasting finish.
This gloss is a very sheer pink. And it does make your lips look super shiny. This strawberry scented gloss feels a little goopy but not sticky at least not so much that it irritated me. I cannot stand sticky glosses or my hair getting in them. It is surprisingly long lasting even on my coffee slurping mouth :)
Bonus item: Schick Hydro Silk razor
I was pretty happy to see this bonus item this month. I love getting these razors every once in a while in my subbies. It lets me try new razors, otherwise I would probably would never change it up from my Olay Venus razor (which I got in a sub). Plus we got a $5 off coupon for new blades. That is pretty generous. I am digging the ergonomic handle on this one. Razor d’ete?

I saw this privé box and had to have it. I so wanted to try more from this Australian brand. It did remind me that I have a Model Co. Cheek and Lip tint kicking around somewhere that I quite enjoyed. I am going to go root around for it.
