Hello! I'm still trying to get all these posts up before I get overwhelmed again! I'm surprised at how long this is taking me; usually I'm not such a procrastinator (except that's a lie and I totally am. I'm just really embarrassed about it...). With the weather getting nicer and the sun staying out longer, I think I'm starting to feel re-energized so perhaps I'll get back into the habit of keeping my blog (relatively) up-to-date!
This post, as the title suggests, is going to be an unboxing and review of my March 2014 Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box! I really love this subscription box; it's always worth the $25 I spend and you get so many different and interesting things.
I like to start with the samples; with every order you make from Blush.com/Dermstore.com/Hairenvy.com, you get at least two free samples. I say "at least" since you're promised two, but I've occasionally gotten three!
As always, I'm going to try and go in the order of the info card, which means I'll start with March's featured product: Skinceuticles Hydrating B5 Gel!
This month, we ended up getting eight different products, which I think is the most we've ever gotten!
First up, we have the Suki 100% Organic Washcloth.
Next is the seemingly randomly named Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Microderm!
Perhaps my favorite item in this month's box, next is the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid.
Whew! Still have a lot more to go! Next up is a single pair of Talika Eye Therapy Patches.
Ugh, I'm sorry this ended up so blurry. You can get the gist of how to use these eye patches from the little pictures on the bottom. These are under-eye patches with ceramides, avocado oil, and essential oils that you leave on for about 30 minutes to help refresh and rejuvenate your eyes. You can use one pair up to three times, so this is a pretty good sized sample (at least, it's better than a one-time use sample!). I'm excited to give these a try since I've been interested in mask and mask-like products for use in the eye area (I feel like my eye area is one of less-than-perfect areas). A full size (which is technically a refill pack since I think there's a kit or something you buy that has these in it) has six pairs for $58, so this single pair is worth about $9.70.
Next is another product I'm pretty excited about: StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles.
Almost there! This next product is the only one I'm pretty sure I won't ever use (I actually already gave it away to my mom!).
And finally, I got a Laura Geller Beauty Spackle Under Make-Up Primer.
And that's everything! A good haul if you ask me! Overall, I got eight products. Out of those eight, two were full sized (the washcloth and the Ultra Light Hydrator) and six were deluxe sample sized. The total value of March 2014's Mystery Box, minus the B5 gel since I don't know how much it's worth, was $92.30. After adding in whatever value the B5 gel has (which I'm sure is somewhere around $10), I got the promised $100+ worth of products! The Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box is a great mid-range subscription box, especially if you're interested in beauty products that go beyond color cosmetics. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for reading! <3
