August Blush Mystery Beauty 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 of this blush beauty box is $122.81.  I'm excited about all of the items except the waterproof topcoat. I've never been into waterproof mascara because it's so hard to get off.  I love purple colored eyeliners. My eyes are haze so it makes them standout a little more. Gardenia is one of my favorite flower scents but it can be overpowering. I was happy that this hand cream wasn't too strong. The dermafoliant looks interesting but I'm afraid I'm going to make a gooey mess trying to mix water with it. I wonder of there are directions on the bottle? I love face masks and this one by Carita sounds luxurious. Who doesn't need brighter skin? 

Verdict: I was really happy with this months box. It had LOTS of stuff I'm eager to try.
