March Blush Beauty Mystery Bag

Blush is a company that is associated with Dermstore and Blush offers 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.

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.

Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed:

.5 oz. Laura Geller Beauty Spackle Under Make-Up Primer. Value = $7.50

Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel Sample. Value = $10.00??

The total value of of this blush beauty box is a $102.37. This bag was just ok for me. I like the washcloth although I use bamboo ones that are super soft. The miracle skin microderm, Paula's choice, skinceuticals and talika products are all items I will use so I definitely got my moneys worth with those items. The DCL hydrator is a great product but I prefer to use moisturizer with SPF. I'm not a big primer person but I've heard great things about Laura Geller. Is this something that I can use under powder or do you have to use primer under liquid foundation. I've heard StriVectin works really well but I don't have any face wrinkles yet and I'm not even going to attempt to use this on stretch marks. The good news is I can trade the items I'm not loving on eDivv.

Verdict: I got my money's worth from this box even though there were a couple items I didn't care for.
