This month’s box didn’t come in a fancy inside box. I don’t know if this change is permanent.

Alexandra de Markoff Balancing Cleanser ($3)

Bath and Body Sunshine & Lemons Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel ($1)

Good useful items. I can always uses some hand sanitizer and this cleanser is good for all skintypes.

LipFusion Micro-Collagen Color Shine Lip Plumper ($31.50) This was a glossy but not too glossy and not sticky. I think I did see some plumping effects and I’m going to have to experiment with this one. The color is a beautiful mauvish coral (the lights really illuminated the shine – this is not an orange gloss) and it went on with a light wash of color.

Silver Plated Heart Locket Necklace ($20) Both the card and the seller call this handmade, but it looks exactly like this one to me (a locket available on Alibaba).  I don’t find this item objectionable, but I don’t think it’s worth $20 and I don’t think it’s handmade.

The value of the February Beauty Joy box was over $50 using the price given on the card for the necklace. The value is great as-is and I wish this subscription wouldn’t unnecessarily inflate the prices.

    This was my first Beauty Joy box and had a mix up with the tracking number, they gave me someone else’s instead. I got my box Monday and wasn’t totally thrilled with it, but I like it. I love the lipgloss and the hand sanitizer is always great. The necklace bugged me though, I don’t know why. It’s cute, but looks a lot cheaper than $20 and a I agree not handmade.

    Was it just my box or did your gloss have a terrible “taste” to it 🙁

      mine didn’t really have a taste. i think i really like that gloss, but i’d wished it had a bigger applicator.
