La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel
$18 (full size)
Basically a spa experience in a bottle, this gel cleanser aims to soften and smooth skin — while also reducing stress. 

Overall: We were quite pleased with this month's selections. (But, really, what's not to love about new beauty booty delivered to your mailbox automatically each month?!) 

While we have found some of the sample sizes in the past to be a bit teeny tiny, this month's goodies were all a decent size, which allowed us to really give these products a go. 

Our favourites? The Arrow lip balm, which made for a fun, high school science class-type experiment to see what hue it made our lips turn. (Mine turned a pretty shade of peach!) 

And the Obliphica Professional serum, which was lightweight yet smoothing enough to tame frizz-prone hair.
