Beauty Box. I am not a make up expert at all but I thought I would share the first one in case there were people thinking of signing up and wanting a little more info. My make up routine is very simple and I am quite loyal to products that I know work for me so I signed up to this as a treat once a month and to try and shake things up a little.
Beauty box is $15 per month and you receive between 4 to 5 samples. This box included:
- YSL: Beauty Sleep
- Marc Jacobs: Oh! Lola! (three little sample bottles were included)
- Sally Hansen: nail file
- Playboy Spicy Body Spray
- Shu Uemura: Cleansing Oil.
I put the night cream on after my shower and the fragrance was a little overpowering for my likings and the consistency was a little watery. There was really only enough in the bottle for one use so not sure if I will be able to squeeze enough out for another try.
The stand out in this box was the cleansing oil, it was the most delightful product I have ever put on my skin. It smells delicious and is so soft and smooth. My skin felt lovely after using it and I am looking forward to using it again tomorrow. It retails for $105 for 450mls which is way more than I would usually spend on a cleanser but depending on how my skin is after the sample is gone I would consider buying it.
I won't be using the nail file, as filing my nails makes my skin crawl, does anyone else get that?
There has been a little controversy over the card that came with the box saying that you must review the product to ensure continued membership. I personally think the review is a great idea, but making it mandatory to continue receiving the box is a little excessive when were paying to receive the product.
Apart from that I am really happy with the box and looking forward to receiving it again next month.
Have you signed up for anything like this? What are your thoughts?
