December Blush Beauty Box

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.

Price: $24.95-$34.95 a month with no option to skip.

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 are usually high end.

Skip: Their website is not user friendly.  I couldn't find an option to skip or cancel.

December Blush Beauty Mystery Bag.

Close up of the colors of the makeup items. Doesn't the Nuxe product look like it should be nail polish?

Contents of Blush box w/approximate retail price listed:

FULL SIZE Klorane Shampoo with Desert Date. Value = $15.00

FULL SIZE Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in True Teal. Value = $12.00

FULL SIZE Avéne Cleanance Gel Soap Free Gel Cleanser. Value = $20.00

1 oz. Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo. Value = $3.75

FULL SIZE Paula's Choice Shine Stopper. Value = $16.10

1.3 oz. Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion. Value = $3.77

FULL SIZE Cargo Cosmetics eyeshadow in OZ. Value = $16.00

.33 oz. Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil Shimmer for face, body & hair. Value = $5.80

.04 oz. LipFusion Lipstick in Babydoll. Value = $9.21

.17 oz. Clean Cool Cotton Eau de Parfum. Value = $6.50

The total value of of this Blush Beauty Bag is a $108.13. I am excited by this box. It's full of useful things like shampoo and lotion but always has fun new stuff to try. I totally thought the Nuxe product was nail polish. I'm glad I read bottle before I used it on my nails. I bet it would have been a nice moisturizer for my cuticles though. I wish the Cargo eyeshadow were a different color although I guess this would be a good base color. I think I will give the shine stopper a try this weekend for a party we are going to. I looked at pics from last year and I had a couple of shiny spots. I'm kind of overloaded on face cleanser right now but I definitely going to try this soapless formula from Avéne. 

Verdict: Blush beauty always has a great value and often sends 2-3 full size products.
