February Blush mystery beauty box

Last week I received an email from Blush advertising their new monthly mystery beauty box.  It said you could make a one time purchase for $34.95 or subscribe monthly for $24.95.  It made absolutely no sense to me to pay $10 more when I could just cancel the subscription if I didn't like it.  Each month Blush says they will send a box full of products handpicked by their panel of beauty experts of mostly full size and some travel-size products worth at least $100.  Also it said enjoy a free gift with your beauty box and free shipping. This month they said the box would be worth $224! I don't know if they plan on saying what the value is every month or if they just did it for this month to get people to sign up.  The subscriptions are limited and this month is sold out but I'm sure some will open up next month.
Also I have to mention I ordered this on a Thursday and it was delievered on Saturday via USPS first class mail from Kentucky to California.  How's that for fast shipping! 

The good:

Size: There were four full size products in this box and they were premium products to boot!

Price: If they continue to send great products with a value of at least $100 that's 4 times the value.

Want more: Since they have a retail website reordering is easy. 

The not so good:

Price: This is one of the higher priced subscriptions but the products seem to be premium.

Skip: Their website is not user friendly.  I couldn't find an option to skip or cancel. 

Here are all the goodies in my Blush Box on my cute handmade placemat. 

Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed: 

FULL SIZE Smart Lash eyelash enhancer. Value = $125.00

FULL SIZE Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray. Value = $29.00

Foot Petals Tip Toes. Value = $6.95

FULL SIZE Cattiva mascara. Value = $24.00

FULL SIZE Dermstore Lip Quench. Value = $12.00

.17 oz. Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester. Value = $15.00

.13 oz. SkinMedica Lytera skin brightening complex.  Value = $8.33

.5 oz. Hera Argan Oil. Value = $5.63

The total value of this mystery beauty box is $225.91.  They hit the value right on the mark.  My invoice said it included a free sample and a free mystery gift but there was nothing to indicate which items were the free sample and gift.  I wouldn't think they would include the "free" items in the value but I'm still ok with it because there are some great items in here.  I was excited to see the smart lash product because I've always wanted to try a product like this.  I've been reluctant to buy it though because of the price and I've heard you have to keep using it and I've heard horror stories about peoples lashes falling out.  I read the reviews on this and they are all great and I get to try it for a bargain price!  I've also heard the Skindinavia product works well but I'm not sure how often I would use it.  I have the lip quench and use it quite often so a backup tube is nice to have.  Foot petals always come in handy.   

Verdict: I'm very happy with this first box.  Can't wait to see next month's goodies.

  1. Did you use the Lytera Skin Brightening Complex? Does it work? Did it cause a breakout?
