The Matchup by eSalon Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 2016

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

The Match Up
is a subscription box from eSalon.   Receive your choice of three hair care, styling, brow and accessory items from eSalon.  They offer products for color care, volumizing, and more. There’s also a 100% guarantee. Normally $30 per month plus $4.95 shipping, you can your first box for half off.

You’ll be able to select your products manually or use the discovery feature to generate your profile to get matched with items! And there are a lot of them. FYI, on their site you can click on each item for additional information and pricing information.


I got an email right before my matchup was supposed to ship asking if I wanted to make any changes. I had already gone in and made a change but I was glad for the reminder so I could take one last look and see that I was all set to go.


I really like that everything comes in this nice bag. I’m not sure what we are supposed to do with the bag after we take the products out but I used my last one for shoes in my suitcase when I headed on vacation and it worked great for that.


The information card comes and lists out the items that you selected.


Everything in my May box.


eSalon Heart Lock It Color Safe Shampoo ($15) This is the shampoo that they send with the hair color kit and I love it. I used up my whole bottle from my last Matchup so I grabbed another one.

We know there’s nothing worse than stepping out of the shower and seeing dulled, lackluster strands so our sulfate-free formula expertly cleanses while maintaining your color. Extra gentle on your scalp, you’re left with soft, manageable and colorfully vibrant hair.

eSalon Love Unconditionally Color Safe Conditioner ($15) This is also the conditioner they send with the color kits and another love for me. I have pretty long hair so I go through conditioner like crazy. I see this being one of the items I get in every Matchup box.

Color-treated hair needs special care. Our nourishing formula ensures you’re completely safeguarded against color fade every time you wash as well as feeling ultra-hydrated (without weighing your strands down). Dry off to hair that feels softened, detangled and strengthened — as well as remaining colorfully rich.


eSalon Tinted Love Color Enhancing Treatment ($15) I tried this out with my last box and I was pleasantly surprised with the results.  I haven’t used all of that one but since I ordered a lighter hair color in my eSalon box this time I decided to get a lighter tint to go with it.

Welcome to your colorist’s anti-fade secret. Our temporary, professional-grade treatment allows you to refresh and maintain beautifully vibrant hair color between applications. Keep a rich shade vivid, tone down brassiness or enhance natural hair for a colorful look.


This is a great box to go with the eSalon color box each month but even if you don’t color your hair they have lots of options and things to try out.  I may venture into some other options in future boxes like the hairspray, nourishing treatments, or root touchups.
