Hello! Hope you're having a good week! It's the end of Wednesday so we're half way through! Yay! Well, halfway through if you work a "normal" work week which, honestly, I'm not that fond of. I actually miss working a somewhat skewed work week where my days off fall on weekdays. It's just less busy everywhere and doing laundry is so much easier when you don't have to fight over machines...
As the title says, this post is going to be all about my August 2014 Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box! I really do like this box, but I have been tempted towards trying out BoxyCharm or the new and improved Sample Society box... But that's in the future!
The Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box is a $24.95 a month (I pay closer to $27 due to taxes), shipping included, bag of mystery beauty products! You get a mixture of samples and full sizes and I've only gotten one "foil packet" once and I'm still kind of bitter about it. What I like most about this box is that you're guaranteed a value of at least $100 in products (most often more), which is the most value I've found for boxes in the $20-$25 a month price range (Glossybox is around $60-$70 and BoxyCharm seems to hoover around a similar value).
With every Blush.com order, you get two free samples. And your Mystery Box counts as an order! Sometimes I get three sample, but this time I got two (fairly dull) foil packet samples.
Every month, Blush.com reveals a product in the Mystery Box (last month the showed two!) which they dub their "featured product". They make a short video talking a little about the box and demoing the featured product. As soon as the first of the month rolls around, I start obsessively checking the Blush.com site to see if the new video is up because I like hype.
Overall, we got six products in this month's box: four full size, one full/travel size, and one deluxe sample size (but still worth a lot!). The total value of the August 2014 Blush.com Mystery Beauty Box is $114.30! Again, that's the biggest draw for this box for me; I feel like I get the most bang for my $24.95.
Thanks for reading! <3
