April Blush Box

After much to-do with my Blush box this month it finally arrived.

Blush is a company that is associated with Dermstore and Blush started 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 sell out quickly.

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.

Blush treasures!

Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed

Tendu hair conditioning treatment mask. Value = $60.00

Revaleskin Intense Recovery Treatment. Value $130.00

Batiste Dry Shampoo. Value = $3.99

Paul Dorf Lip Liner in Sultry. Value = $20.00

.16 oz. Senna lash fortifier. Value = $11.31

.25 oz. Skin Medica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer. Value = $6.75

.16 oz. Phytomer Radiance Replenishing Cream. Value = $11.60 

The total value of this mystery beauty box is $243.65. Holy moly! I can't believe the value of this box! I also can't believe they sent me a product that retails for $130!!! These prices are retail from Dermstore and I did find the Revaleskin product on Amazon for $72 but even still $72 is high. Even with the products I won't use (dry shampoo and lip liner) this is an amazing value. I've heard great things about Tendu and with summer coming I'm sure I will need a little extra moisture help with my hair. A lot of lash fortifying products have been popping up lately. I've use a couple and can't say I've seen much change. This is a product that you put on prior to mascara. Currently I'm not wearing any makeup because my allergies are so bad I just end up rubbing it all off, no point in wasting good makeup. 

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