Boxometry Honest Beauty Trial Review - Makeup Bag

The trial comes with a makeup pouch. It is gray in color with a leather-like texture. The bag is very well made and thick. The inside lining has a floral pattern.

Boxometry Honest Beauty Trial Review - Products for Balanced Skin

Product: Honest Beauty Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser (1 oz)
Value: $3.60

I like this cleanser so far. It does what it’s supposed to, and cleans my skin well. The scent is pretty light and refreshing.

Product: Honest Beauty Beyond Protected Daily Beauty Fluid with SPF 30 (0.33 oz)
Value: $6.16

I'm glad this lotion applies very smoothly and does not leave any white residue. I find that a lot of products with SPF gets a bit pasty and oily. I was able to completely blend the lotion into the skin without a mess or stickiness.

Product: Honest Beauty Even Brighter Everyday Moisturizer (0.17 oz)
Value: $5.78

The moisturizer works well, and does not dry out my skin. It is very lightweight and is lightly scented.

Final Thoughts: I like all of the products I tried from Honest Beauty so far. The trial is composed of skincare products, so I am not sure about their makeup line yet. I would love to try them out as well since they are advertised to be free of harsh chemicals (or I am assuming that from the Honest philosophy). I want to mention that I really like the makeup bag that was included in the trial. It does not look like you can purchase it on the site so the value is estimated. However, they might include it as a GWP? Overall, I'm liking the Honest Beauty products, and look forward to trying more.
