I was approached by Preen.Me to review their "Preen.Me Edition: 01 VIP box and I was excited to test it out and see what products I would receive. If you're not familiar with the company, Preen.Me aims to become the leading destination for all things beauty, transforming how women shop for beauty products. Their team provides everything from inspiration to personalized recommendations based on the user's social graph and crowd sourcing, proving a holistic way to buy beauty better.
Each box features uncovered gems, trending products, and Preen.Me's personal faves. At first I was skeptical of what products I would be receiving, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised!
First up is a brand called Dr. Denese Skin Care in which I received four products: FirmaTone Rx Retinol Maximum Firming Serum, Advanced Firming Facial Pads, Triple Strength Wrinkle Smoother Advanced Treatment and SPF 30 Defense Day Cream. Each product deserves two thumbs up, however I have to point out the firming serum as it was definitely my favorite product in the entire box. It is made to improve lines, wrinkles, firmness, elasticity, skin tone, brightness and also significantly improves the evenness of skin color and makes my skin feel hydrated and smooth. The moment I put it on my skin I wanted to pour the entire bottle on myself. The last few years I have been dedicated to using good skin care products (mostly anti-aging or preventative), and I can say that after just a few times using these products my skin has seriously never felt so good.
The brands founder, Dr. Adrienne Denese, a Cornell trained M.D. and Ph.D. is a trailblazer in anti-aging skincare, with all products made with clinically proven formulations in the highest possible concentrations. With Dr. Denese it’s all about applying the best products in the right order to maximize results. Click here to learn more about her and her products!
Next in my box was a gift from Demeter Fragrance. With over 300 fragrances inspired by everyday objects, Demeter turns your favorite goodies, like Birthday Cake and Tootsie Pops, into delicious, fresh scents that can be worn alone or blended. Gifted to me in my Preen.Me box was a 50 ml bottle of my own personal Zodiac scent (Pisces) as well as 5 ml bottles of all twelve Zodiac scents.
The cool things about this brand is that you can combine your personal Zodiac scent with the others to create something unique based on the different facets of your personality, rising sign, or the people most important to you. You could mix your scent with your best friend's sign when attending her wedding, your significant other’s when going on a date, or those of your children. The creations are endless and the best part is, they all are personal to you. Pretty cool concept if you ask me!
Last but not least, was an assortment of gluten-free granola packs from She is French started by a French girl, Agathe, who hoped to simplify her morning routine while still accessing the health benefits of superfoods and gluten free. She created "She Is French" and gathered three collections of superfoods to create recipes for her favorite breakfast food, granola. The brand believes that food should taste good, feel good and make you look good in that order. Did I mention it's delicious?!
My box contained the following flavors (also shown above): Maca Almond Coconut, Matcha Walnut Ginger, and my favorite, Tumeric Cashew Cranberry. These packs are perfect for on the go, and make a great addition to a yogurt or acai bowl.
