MAGIC BOX: How to Be A Redhead – January 2017

Today I received my January edition of H2BAR, and I happily unboxed it.  I try not to look at spoilers for subscription boxes, because, well, I like beauty surprises! (well, most of them).

This box has the theme New Year New (Redhead) You!



A Happy New Year note from the lovely twins!



There’s a mention of the FIRST Natural SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Lipstick from a company called Sun Tegrity!  Sadly, this was not in my box this month.

And a How-To properly dry shampoo.


OK, now the info cards are out of the way…let’s check out the redhead friendly sample size products!


YUNI Shower Sheets

These are probably great if you are traveling and don’t have access to a shower and need to freshen up after a 10 hour trip.  Other mentions on the YUNI site include “after gym” and “after a Yoga class”.  Hmm.


Christophe Robin Moisturzing Hair Oil with Lavender & Cleansing Mask with Lemon

This is the first I’ve heard of this brand, although I couldn’t help but think of Christopher Robin from Winnie the Pooh….which brought a smile to my face.  Childhood.  I adore lavender and lemon scents especially for hair and body so I am curious to try this out.


Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo for those no-shampoo days or on the go because you didn’t have time to wash your hair the night before?  THIS actually works!  Pleasant scent!  I like and will buy!


Adesse Organic Infused Nail Lacquer in Irina (GREAT refreshing unique color!).  Gonna treat myself to a manicure and put this color on!

Abba Pure Performance Hair Care Moisture Shampoo

Intense combination of actives that will help to brighten the skin as well as reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolorations. Our Fade-Bright Serum provides even, fast-acting pigment inhibition. The combination of Alpha Arbutin, Kojic Acid, Licorice, Mulberry, Bearberry, Resveratrol and Lactic acid will help to brighten the skin as well as reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolorations. This combination of ingredients will act faster, safer and more efficiently than commonly used bleaching creams with a single component – without irritation. Repeated daily use required to achieve desired results. Best results are seen after 4-6 weeks of use. Use of sun protection is required.

I received 2 of these so I’m assuming that was to make up for the missing Sun Tegrity lippie from above.
