Hello! Hope you guys are having a great weekend! It's sunny and nice here and, after the mail comes (I'm expecting a big package. The tracking says it's almost 10lbs!) I'm going to go for a walk to the mall! Exciting!
This post is going to be about my May 2014 Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box! Unfortunately, this was a pretty "meh" box this month; overall it wasn't too bad, but it does have the most disappointing product I've ever gotten from a Blush.com Mystery Box.
Quick and dirty run down of what the Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box is: it is a $24.95 a month subscription service (and that includes shipping) where you get a collection of mystery products that are valued at $100+ from Blush.com, Dermstore.com, and HairEnvy.com. Ever since Target acquired Blush.com, I've had to pay taxes so my box is closer to $27. You can also purchase a one-time only box for $34.95, but I would recommend just subscribing since it saves you $10 and it doesn't seem that hard to unsubscribe. I believe any purchase you make from Blush.com, Dermstore.com, or HairEnvy.com has free shipping if you're a member/subscriber and every order comes with two free samples. They can be anything, really, and I've gotten the lame foil packets up to actual travel/mini sizes of products.
I'm usually a big fan of this mystery box, especially since I really don't like Glossybox and this is what I subscribed to instead of it, but this month it seems like Blush.com really dropped the ball. I got a very disappointing, completely unusable product, and now I hear that someone got the March 2014 box instead of the May one! And they've been unable to get in touch with customer service to rectify the issue. I've had good experiences with Blush.com's customer service in the past, so I really hope they're able to get the right box, but if they're going to give her the runaround, I may just unsubscribe and look elsewhere for my "get surprises in the mail" fix.
You get at least two free samples with every order from Blush.com (sometimes I get three and I have no idea why, but I'm certainly not complaining!)
Every month, Blush.com has a special featured product that is picked by a guest curator and that they make a preview video about.
First up, we got another sample from Bioxidea!
Next is the most disappointing product I have ever received from a Blush.com Mystery Box.
Next is another kind of "meh" product, but only because it's so similar to something we've gotten before.
This next product is kind of interesting...
Finally, we got a deluxe sample of the Laura Geller Beauty Cool Lids Cream Eyeshadow in the color Silver Sands.
Overall, we got six products in this month's box; two are full size, one is part of a 3-part set, two are very healthy sized deluxe samples, and one is completely useless and is in my trash. Adding up the value of all my products (and this doesn't include the Miracle Skin Transformer), this box is worth $125.50, so I'm definitely getting my money's worth. As I said though, Blush.com seems to have really dropped the ball this month and I don't know if I can really continue to highly recommend giving this Mystery Box a try. I want to wait and see what next month is like; if it's another disappointment, I may consider moving on to a different subscription.
Thanks for reading! <3
