Blush aka Blush.com Mystery Beauty box is a monthly box, costing $24.95 for a monthly subscription or $34.95 for a one-time box. Each box is valued to contain over $100 worth of products that vary from hair, makeup, and skincare (usually).
Blush changed from its usual packaging (which was none!) to having a new branded drawstring bag to hold your products and a postcard with the product listing (like BB or Glossybox) with detail about your items.
This month was a little different, in that Blush has partnered up with the jewelry seller Baublebar to give out 1 of 3 bracelet designs. This month had six products + one bonus sample.
I checked my email today and saw that my May 2013 Blush.com shipped today!
For those who haven’t heard of the Blush Mystery Box, this is a monthly subscription service from the retailer Dermstore/Blush/Hairenvy (all under one company, different ). The pricing starts out with a one-time box for $34.95 or a monthly subscription for $24.95. There are a limited number of boxes available, so get one soon if you’re interested!
Products include brands sold in their online stores, usually a mix of full size and travel size items. They guarantee that the items will usually be worth over $100. This month contains six products, and two products have already been revealed via Blush.com
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?
