O's Circle of Friends Subscription

Back in October Oprah launched her new O's Circle of Friends subscription. The subscription has three levels of membership and each one offers a little something different. The basic membership is $39 the prime membership is $99 and the premier membership is $199. The prime membership has all the bell and whistles but it's also expensive. I debated on which one to sign up for but because Oprah has the magic touch when it comes to products I opted for the premier membership. I was intrigued by the "test (and keep!) products component. 

The good:

Oprah: Pretty much everything associated with Oprah turns to gold. 

Price: Three different price levels. 

The not so good:

Value: So far I'm not seeing the value in the premier membership. I have yet to get a surprise gift or products I can test and keep.

Comparison of memberships. 

The outside of the box. Look familiar? 

Boy this sure looks like a GlossyBox. 

It's even wrapped up like a GlossyBox. 

This is the Blvgari package opened. It has a ceramic disc you can spray and put in your closet. 

Contents of the O's Circle of Friends Box:

FULL SIZE Vichy Neovadiol Lumiere BB Cream. Value = $42.00

FULL SIZE Doll 10 Defining Mascara 360. Value = $12.00

.5 oz. Aerin Beauty Rose Hand & Body Cream. Value = $4.77

FULL SIZE Bodyography Nail Lacquer in #Glossybox. Value = $8.50

FULL SIZE Jouer Tint lip and cheek color in whisper. Value = $20.00

FULL SIZE Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert Eau de Cologne & Perfumable Ceramic. Value = $35.00

The total value of the first O's Circle of Friends box is $122.27. The box came in the regular GlossyBox shipping container which confused me since I had already received my GlossyBox this month. I was pleasantly surprised and excited when I saw that it was the Oprah box. I was wondering when I would receive it since I subscribed in October. I'm happy with the box for the most part. I love the Blvgari parfume and the set they sent is pretty cool. I will definitely use the mascara and hand cream. I'm not to into BB cream and I have tons of lip stuff so I'm not sure I'll use those items. 

The subscription itself I'm not too impressed with. I've been getting the weekly newsletter, my magazine,  a Christmas card and now this box. I have yet to get a surprise gift or any products I can test and keep. I'm hoping this will change real soon. 

Verdict: The premier subscription is not worth the money so far. I will update if that changes.
