June 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.

Blush Box - sorry about the blurry pic

Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed

.33 oz. Decleor Aroma Cleanse Essential Cleansing Milk. Value = $1.33

.33 oz. Decleor Aroma Cleanse Essential Tonifying Lotion. Value $1.33

.5 oz. Hydroxatone Revitalizing Microdermabrasion. Value = $8.55

.05 Stila Cosmetics Glaze in Kaleidoscope. Value = $13.75

FULL SIZE DHC Clarifying Pore Cover Base. Value = $19.00

.5 oz. Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF20 Tinted Body Treatment Enhancer. Value = $5.48

.10 oz. Supergoop CC Cream Daily Correct SPF35. Value = $2.00

FULL SIZE Glytone Suncare Sunscreen Spray Mist. Value = $39.00 - This stuff sadly is amazing. I say that because it's $40 bucks a bottle! We used it during a rafting trip and it worked all day long even after we went swimming in the river. It's a little oily and you need to really soap up to get it off but darn it, it works!

Free Samples:

.05 oz. Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Serum. Value = $4.25

.05 oz. Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Creme. Value = $3.08

The total value of this mystery beauty box is $90.44 or $97.77 with the free samples. This is not quite the $100 they promised and only two products are full size, the others were deluxe or sample sized. With that being said I'm happy with the items I received and it's still a good value for me. I love getting microderm facials. Now I know this product won't replace a facial but I'm going to try and hope it's a cheaper substitute between facials. I don't have large pores but they are larger than I want them to be so I'm going to give the pore cove up a try. It says it leaves a matte finish on your skin which I love. I think I'm set with sunscreen of all types this summer. I'm not too sure about the miracle skin transformer. It says you can use it to cover imperfections on your arms, legs, chest and back area. Wait? back area? How the heck am I going to put cover up on my back? and why would I want to?

Verdict: A couple of the low value items I won't use but the high value items I will use and that made it worth it.
