April 2013 Blush Beauty Mystery Box

2013-04-24-blushbox

Blush.com/Dermstore/Hairenvy are the web stores featuring a newer subscription beauty box that includes a mix of full-size and travel size sample items. The box itself will be worth over $100 every month.

The products range from cosmetic items, hair products, and skin care products and the cost for a monthly box is $24.95 or a one time box for $34.95

Two days after ordering, my box arrived. I was quite pleased with Blush’s fast shipping, but the box’s presentation could be improved. Instead of being in a box with nice packaging, like Birchbox or Glossybox, there was a big, black ziplock bag with items just tossed in and a free gift with purchase on the outside of the bag. Also, there was no card or insert included describing the items received or how to use them.

What was inside the box then?

Items:
Tendu Ultimate Hair Conditioning Treatment Mask / Full Size $60
Vichy Eau Thermal / Full Size $12
SkinCeuticals Micro Exfoliating Scrub .25 oz *Gift with purchase
Obagi Nu-derm Foaming Gel / Sample Value $12
SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer / Sample Value $6.50
Make-up Designory Eye Pencil in Black / Full size $13
Paula Dorf Lip Liner in Sultry / Full size $20

Total Value: $123.50

I’ve seen other reviews with box variations; some boxes have had a blush, dry shampoo, and serum. Preview on my items received below.

Tendu Ultimate Hair Conditioning Treatment Mask | Revive your damaged hair with this natural treatment mask. It smells good and looks nice and thick. I’ve never used a hair product that costs this much before!

Make-up Designory Eye Pencil in Black | Black pencil eyeliner; I haven’t tested it yet.
Paula Dorf Lip Liner in Sultry | A brownish-nude lip liner; untested.

2013-04-24-blushskincare

Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel | Facial cleanser for normal to oily skin.

Vichy Eau Thermal | I’m a little confused about this product. It’s mineral infused water that claims to keep your skin looking young and fresh.

SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer | Oil-free face moisturizer.

SkinCeuticals Micro-exfoliating scrub | Exfoliater with diatomaceous earth microbeads and aloe vera

Overall:

I think it’s a box with a great value, and this month featured tons of skincare products. I’ve never tried any fancy skincare or hair products before, so this would be a great box for those looking for inexpensive “prestige” skincare samples.

Products: 7/10 (a little skincare heavy, makeup products could use more color)

Value: 9/10 (a little pricier than Glossybox, but good value!)
