Macy’s Beauty Box March 2018 Subscription Box Review

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

Macy’s Beauty Box is a monthly subscription that delivers five deluxe beauty samples, one bonus item, and a collectible cosmetics bag for $15 per month. Beauty Box subscribers also get an exclusive $5 beauty coupon that can be use online and in-store.

The items safely arrived inside a pouch.

The theme this month is EAT. SLEEP. GLOW.

Each month comes with a Macy Beauty Box booklet.

Instead of the usual $5 coupon, I received a $10 coupon at the back of the booklet. These coupons aren’t stackable from one month to the next. BUT there’s free shipping on all Macy’s Beauty orders. Check out these categories sorted from low to high price: Bath & Body, Natural BeautyMakeup, Skincare, and Travel-size.

I was boring and used mine on natural deodorant for my husband.

The information booklet gives you a list of all the items included in the box.

Everything in the March 2018 Macy’s Beauty Box!

Eat Sleep Glow Makeup Bag This month’s makeup pouch from Macy’s is in white, with Eat Sleep Glow stylishly printed on it.

The other side of the pouch is just plain white. It’s handy and a great organizer for makeup or beauty items.

It comes with a rust-proof zipper. The interior of the pouch is hot pink.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum ($2.16) This elegant perfume has notes of jasmine, cocoa, and tonka. It also has hints of almond, coffee, and tuberose. It gives off a sensual and feminine scent, plus it’s long lasting!

If you actually buy the full-size, it comes in a sophisticated high-heel shaped bottle.

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Night Lifting/Firming Face & Neck Creme ($9.20) I’m fond of creams that work overnight! This one is rich and creamy, and it reduces lines and wrinkles while restoring radiance. Ingredients include Tri-Peptide Lift Complex that helps skin build its natural collagen.

It has a pleasant smell and, since it’s a rich cream, you only need a little amount to cover your whole face. Also, there’s no greasy residue!

Lancome Advanced Genifique Serum ($14.13) Lightweight and fast-absorbing, this serum was formulated to combat skin aging and other usual skin concerns like uneven skin tone. It’s recommended to be applied after cleansing to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. The bottle comes with an exclusive self-loading dropper which delivers an ideal dosage for each application, so nothing is wasted.

MAC Strobe Cream Hydratant Luminescence ($3.96) For a quick skin fix, this formula helps brighten and clarify the skin with iridescent particles and antioxidants. It also contains potent botanicals, strobe cream nutritious vitamins, and a mega-dose of green tea that boosts the look of dull, flat, or tired-looking skin. Although it isn’t exactly glittery, it leaves the skin with a nice subtle sheen. I also like its creamy texture that makes an ideal base for makeup.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence ($11.18) This essence was formulated to reduce dark spots and wrinkles, as well as to refine the texture and improve firmness of the skin. It contains pitera, which is a clear liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids and minerals that works to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime. The product has a water consistency, you just have to sprinkle it into your palms and press into the skin gently.

Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream SPF 15  ($5.12) Packed with green banana and oat sugars, this day cream keeps the skin firm and smooth. Other key ingredients include lemon thyme extract that promotes skin elasticity, and cocoa extract that helps energize the skin. It works with all skin types, and ideal for women in their 40s. The formula is noncomedogenic, and free of petrochemicals, GMOs, and triclosan. It does use chemical sunscreens so for me, it’s ideal for my neck, as I’m sensitive to using it on my face.

The total value of this month’s Macy’s Beauty Box was about $49.23. Many items this month came from known brands and they’re just wonderful! My favorite has got to be the night creme and the SK II essence, which both work wonders for my skin that needs nourishing. Still hoping that the curators make it a $10 beauty bag, but I think the pricing on this one is more realistic compared with other beauty bags, having popular and prestige brands that are always and readily available at Macy’s. However the $10 coupon takes it to the next level and makes it really valuable for me.

      I used to totally say the same thing (a few years back all the lifestyle subs sent pouches) but somehow I end up using most of them (and I get a LOT of them!!). I think Lookfantastic is a great choice with some unique items. Unfortunately the Macy’s box is really just if you love the brands at Macy’s, and they can be pretty limited – Brandy

    Nothing exciting but good brand/quality products. If all of their boxes were like this I would subscribe.
