June Beauty Army Box

Here's how Beauty Army works.  You get to choose up to 6 items to try out from a selection of 9 items. The selection window is open for 5 days based on the day you signed up.  I happened to sign up on the 1st of the month so my window starts then.  They update their stock daily so what's available one day may not be available the next.  I also noticed that if I refresh my browser different items come up. I actually did that a couple of times to get what I want. The price is $12 a month and that includes shipping. They also offer a yearly deal for $132 which means your 12th month is free dropping the price down to $11 a month. This month I was determined to not miss the selection window and let them pick for me again. I managed to not forget and I think I received some pretty cool stuff. 

The Good:

The brands: You will get options from well known brands. They also say they use brands from emerging companies which is also fun.

The box/kit: I am very impressed with the little box it comes in. It's a well made sturdy reusable box hat can be used for gifting treasure boxes of your own making, keeping your treasures organized, etc.

The price: $12 Shipping included seems reasonable to me to be able to try a useful amount of product. Also you are picking the items out so theoretically you will always get something you will use.  

Customer Service: I've had to email customer service for an issue and they were very prompt in responding and fixing the issue.  They seem to really care about their customers happiness with their products.

Skip a month: Not feeling it this month? unexpected bills? now you can skip the month. If you are a yearly member and skip the month then another month will be added to the end.  Yay! 

The not so Good:

Skipping: Since they change their items everyday I usually wait until the last day to decide if I've going to skip or not. I wish they would send a reminder on the last day of the selection window.

The total value of my kit is $21.09. I kept skipping months because nothing was showing up in my selection window that I wanted. Finally this month had some products that I was excited about. I picked the shampoo and conditioner because it's something I can always use. Ditto for the cleansing cloths. I've used various argan oils and I like the way it makes my hair feel so I jumped on this sample. It's just a foil packet sample but it has a lot of product in it. Since I'm all about keeping my hair moisturizes I picked up the novel product also. The mascara is full sized and since I can always use mascara so I picked it up. Lastly I really like the last juice beauty product I used and this is a great travel size. 

Verdict: I found I was skipping several months in a row so I canceled this box and re-subbed to birch box.
