August Blush Beauty Box has arrived! I was beginning to despair of ever getting another beauty box (because it seems like every single kids’ subscription arrived this week!). Blush Beauty Box is a a monthly box from Blush.com and every box has over $100 in value… for only $24.95 a month! It’s fantastic!
Every Blush Beauty Mystery Box has a guest curator and this month’s box was curated by Liz Franz, the editor-in-chief of Dermstore, Blush, and HairEnvy. My box was actually a little different than others that I have seen so I am totally excited to share it with you!
Blush Mystery Beauty Box: August 2013!
I unpacked the box, snapped some photos, and dug right in to my Blush Box! I was really anticipating this box!
Philip B. Maui Wowie Beach Mist ($22). I love texturizing salt sprays. I swear it’s the only thing that works for my baby fine hair because it doesn’t weigh it down. I sprayed this on my dry hair and it looked great!
Mor Emporium Hand Cream in Snow Gardenia ($20). This is a thick, rich lotion with mostly gardenia and undertones of sandalwood. I thought the sandalwood really evened out the gardenia scent. Nice & very emollient.
Coola SPF 30 Face Classic Sunscreen. Nice little sample, I was happy I got it in cucumber. If you’re a regular, you know where it went! (In the stroller! I put half my samples there so I have them when we are out and about – wipes, sunscreens, you name it, I stick it in my stroller!). ($4.30)
ColoreScience Sunforgettable Face Primer. This is really cool. It’s a mineral sunscreen face primer! I can’t wait to try this out and I love this idea. If I like this product I’ll probably buy it. I prefer my foundation not have sunblock in it because it is all eye-stingy. Except… this tiny thing is worth almost $17! I’d better not love it!
Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. This smells completely amazing – like fresh strawberry rhubarb pie! This has absolutely fantastic reviews and you can add it to your cleanser or use with water (I’m thinking of adding it to my purlisse from FabFitFun VIP). $5.70
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Top Coat ($12). I don’t really use waterproof mascara but there’s a few times I want it and don’t have it. This will be perfect for those occasions.
Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen in DeepPlum ($15). I recently got a Mally eye pencil in my July Birchbox and loved the formulation. I loved this one just as much but the color is so much better for my blue eyes to set them off! I adore this.
Skylark Memoir Fragrance Experience Rollerball Set ($59 if you buy it on Blush.com – comes with full size fragrance). I was totally thrilled to receive this in my box! The fragrances are really fantastic, just my style (not too perfumey) and I just loved them. The deal is that you buy this set, vote on your favorite, and get shipped the full size bottle when it’s released. I doubt Blush Box subscribers get that too and I don’t know the full size, so this is hard to value. I’ll go with Demeter pricing, which is $10 a rollerball. So $30! Unfortunately one of the scents (maybe my fave – #2 had leaked and is only half full!). #1 is like a cedary sandalwood, #2 is like a grownup Bath & Body Works, and #3 is a little beachy/ocean and kind of a mix of the other two.
And more samples! Rescue Restorative Shampoo ($1.75). Grooming Lounge Best for Last Aftershave ($0.30), and drēmu emu oil! I’ll take the aftershave to my husband, will use the shampoo, and wow, I was so excited to get emu oil! It’s so hydrating and so expensive! $8.80! I’m testing it on my chest/decollétage area, because it’s pretty sun damaged 🙁
Soooo… Should you get the Blush Beauty Mystery Box?
It is still available and my answer is YES! I got $134.80 of luxury bath, beauty, and cosmetics products for $25.95. And I will use every. single. one. I may not get that much use out of the mascara top coat, but that’s ok, there’s so much value here that it doesn’t even matter. I think you’d be crazy to skip it! It’s $25.95 a month, $35.95 for a single month without a subscription. It’s totally worth every cent… And also I smell really great! You can get your subscription to Blush Beauty Mystery Box here!
NOTE: I originally thought the Lash Genius was full size, it’s mini, not that big a difference!
