March Blush Box

Blush is a company that is associated with Dermstore.  Recently Blush announced they would be selling a monthly mystery beauty box.  You can make a one time purchase for $34.95 or subscribe monthly for $24.95.  Both prices include shipping. 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.  The subscriptions are limited and last month sold out quickly.  It looks like this month there are still some available.  What I don't know is if everyone gets the same box.  I don't think they do because I was reading one of the reviews and someone mentioned getting shampoo and conditioner which I didn't receive in my box.

I happy to be outside with my neighbor when UPS pulled up in front of my house and handed me the box.  The first thing I thought and said was "Oh, it's heavy how exciting".

I believe this subscription is available to the US only, they don't really say on their website. 

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 and all these products were easily found.


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.

This is the eyeshadow close up.  


Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed, also note ALL items are full size. 

Intelligent Beauty Labs Rescue Oil Hair Serum. Value = $50.00

Burt's Bee's Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion. Value $7.99

3LAB Perfect Cleansing Foam. Value = $40.00

Exuviance Rejuvenating Treatment Masque Value = $39.00

Raw Color duo color eyeshadow in Kalahari Value = $28.00 retail but was on sale for $22.40. 

The total value of this mystery beauty box is $159.39.  I gotta be honest this box was a definite hit for me.  Not only was the value amazing I will use everything in it! I love anything hair related especially stuff that will help keep it healthy since I color my hair. Face cleansers and masks always get used.  I found it interesting they sent baby bee lotion but hey lotion is lotion and I love Burt's Bee's. I thought the eye shadow was great, a perfect neutral color and I love that it's a duo.  The really cool thing was all this stuff could be found on the Blush website which is where I got the pricing from.

Verdict: This box is a hit and becoming one of my favorites!

    1. That's an awesome box. I always love getting useful things like shampoo and conditioner because then I don't have to buy it. The eye shadow palette looks like it has some fun colors!

  2. Thanks, yeah but I got tons of shampoo and conditioner from my other subscriptions box. Oh that reminds me, I got my first Goodie Box, but it looks like one you have gotten before :(

    1. I know what you mean. I have a little box with all my shampoo and conditioners next to the shower. I haven't bought shampoo or conditioner is months though so that's nice. Did you get the goodie box with the bacon popcorn?

    2. No, some of the cookies and crackers one you got. I am kind of happy I didn't get the bacon. I am allergic to it [I get horrible hives and break outs on my face] but I have a week spot and I end up taking a nibble! :) I ordered one for my brother [honestly I just say it's for him] and he got a Breakfast food theme. He doesn't eat most of the stuff, so I am eating it! :) Did you already get yours?

    3. allergic to bacon - now that's just awful! At least your sort of forced to be healthy and not eat it. I haven't got mine yet. I wonder if they send people different items?

  4. I actually just signed up with this box because I've order the Skylark Lipgloss from them and heard about the box from you. I'm excited to see what I get. I'll let you know when I get it in what all I got, probably just about the same thing. I'm excited over the value of this box! =D Thanks for sharing!

    2. I def got way different things than you did. This is what I got

      The value though. Seriously I will probably stay with this one forever. I can't get over the value. Even if I don't use everything I have penpals all over the world and I can send them one of the things or give it to someone as a birthday gift ect. The only thing I wish they did was put a card or something in the box to make it a bit more personalized or something or tell you what you got and all that good stuff. =D So super excited to see what we get next month!
