April Beauty Army Box

Here's how Beauty Army works.  You get to choose up to 6 items to try out from a selection of 9 items. The selection window is open for 5 days based on the day you signed up.  I happened to sign up on the 1st of the month so my window starts then.  They update their stock daily so what's available one day may not be available the next.  The price is $12 a month and that includes shipping. They also offer a yearly deal for $132 which means your 12th month is free dropping the price down to $11 a month. This month I checked the website everyday for things I may want EXCEPT on the 5th day. I had totally forgot to check and I received an email saying they picked for me and my box was on it's happy way.  Ooops.   


The Good:

The brands: You will get options from well known brands. They also say they use brands from emerging companies which is also fun.

The box/kit: I am very impressed with the little box it comes in. It's a well made sturdy reusable box hat can be used for gifting treasure boxes of your own making, keeping your treasures organized, etc.

The price: $12 Shipping included seems reasonable to me to be able to try a useful amount of product. Also you are picking the items out so theoretically you will always get something you will use.  

Customer Service: I've had to email customer service for an issue and they were very prompt in responding and fixing the issue.  They seem to really care about their customers happiness with their products.

Skip a month: Not feeling it this month? unexpected bills? now you can skip the month. If you are a yearly member and skip the month then another month will be added to the end.  Yay!


The not so Good:

I honestly couldn't think of anything to put here.  Yep they are that good!

 These are all the items that were picked out for me. Sorry about the fuzzy picture. 

Contents of box with approximate retail value listed: 

FULL SIZE New York Streets Dry Shampoo. Value = $17.99

2 oz. Amlactin body lotion. Value = $3.00

.11 Cotz Face for natural skin tone SPF40. Value = $1.33

1 oz. Olive Natural Beauty Lemon and Lavender Bar. Value = $1.25

.1 oz. Yes to Daily Pore Scrub. Value = $0.25

.068 oz. Enspri Sheer Ceremide. Value = $2.69

.068 oz. Enspri Beyond Moisture SPF15. Value = $1.45
The total value of my kit is $27.96. Even though I didn't pick this box I'm pretty happy with it. I can see using all of this stuff right away except for the dry shampoo. I have short hair and if I don't at least get it wet everyday it's a mad crazy mess. The teenager though asked if I had any the other day so at least it gets used.

Verdict:  They have a decent selection of products and I like that if I don't see anything I want then I can just skip.
