I just love trying out all of the interesting items I receive from Orglamix. It's always something new and the themes as well as their color coordination is always on point.


Info card.


Ocean Potion Seaweed Detox Soak ($5.00) - Add this to a bath and insta-mermaid! It adds sea salt, blue green algae, and seaweed to detox your skin. I'm a believer that your body detoxes itself on its own but this is a relaxing addition to a bath for those that take baths. 


Seaweed Elixir Mask ($7.00) - I'm never entirely convinced that masks really have enough time for anti-aging benefits to be there, but I love trying out new masks and will try any of them once. This one is soothing but not cooling and doesn't dry down completely so you will be able to move your face a bit. This is a generous sample size but the full size (2 oz) runs a bit more ($28).


Ocean Mist Sea Salt Shimmer Hair Spray ($8.00) - Shake before use! Also, use semi-quickly as it does evaporate. I haven't used a lot because my hair is textured enough and I don't want to add shimmer and I've noticed a lot of settling and a fair amount of it gone.


Ocean Mineral Serum ($32.00) - Yay for a serum that doesn't break me out! My skin is dry and when it gets slightly cooler, it's REALLY dry. I've been using a moisturizer system but this is a great addition to add a little bit more moisture to my desperate face. I don't know if it's really changing my face right now but it's not causing me any harm.


Beach Bum Sea Salt Scrub ($9.00) - Salt scrub, like a sugar scrub but not as happy. In all seriousness, they both do the same thing but salt scrubs aren't going to make you sticky like sugar ones do. It's great for the rough parts of your body: elbows, knees, feet, and gives your skin a soft glow.


Mermaid Tears Miracle Whip Cream ($18.00) - I wasn't sure what this was going to be when I first looked at the info card. When I think of something being a whip cream, I expect a soap or a body cream, so I was shocked when I saw this! This is a gorgeous eyeshadow base, eyeshadow, under eye highlight, etc. It's a great mermaid blue shade and perfect for just about anything, and the formula is perfect!

This month's box was valued at $79 which is well over double the cost of the box and yet again, the box's theme was well done. All of the items matched the mermaid-y/sea theme and they all are very unique in their uses. My favorite item was the serum as it has become a regularly used item and I wish it were available to purchase!
