July Blush Box

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:

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.

The total value of this mystery beauty box is $133.32 or $142.39 with the free sample. I thought this box was great. The nail polish alone almost pays for the box. I've tried the Lumene products from another box and thought it really did work. I usually apply it at night before bed. I don't use hairspray much mostly because I don't like the way it feels. I'm curious about this self-adjusting stuff though. How does it know how firm I want the hold? The Bioelements products is another one I will use before bed. I use creams with SPF in during the day which the Hydroxatone will be great for. I'll use the self-tanner pads eventually. I prefer that to tanning and we have a day at the lake with some friends coming up soon.

Verdict: I was really happy with this months box. The only product I may not use is the lip shine only because I have so much already.
