I play favorites. I can’t help it. I do. And in the 3 months I’ve been receiving the Blush Mystery Beauty Box it has surpassed all other sample boxes to become my favorite. I’ve told why before but just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s the list (you know my Type A list fascination):
1. There’s always full sizes. More than 1.
2. There’s a great mix of color and skincare and even hair care.
3. The brands they decide to include are usually high-end (and I’m a beauty snob remember?).
4. There is a curator for each box. It might be a Dermatologist one month and the Editor in Chief the next.
5. You can simply purchase the box instead of purchasing a subscription.
Okay I could go on. But I won’t. For September 2013, the star product was eerily familiar to Ipsy. Here’s the lowdown:
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon
This is a hot pink crayon type lip product that can double as a blush. It’s REALLY hot pink. I’ve held onto this one even though the color is terrifying me. I might branch out and into hot pink. TBD.
Anti-Aging Dry Shampoo
I’m so confused by dry shampoo but with my newly keratined lox, I actually have a use for it! Pre Keratin, my hair never got greasy. Post keratin and my head turns into an oil slick if I don’t wash it in 2-3 days – something I was able to do pre-keratin. So I’m going to try this… when I figure it out.
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Clear Brow Gel
Sigh… I wish I had full brows but my brows are naturally sparse. It’s so depressing. I’m keeping this though so I can pretend that I need to tame these full brows a la Brooke Shields.
LVX Nail Lacquer
It’s brown. Like a real dirt brown. Giving it away.
Racinne Deluxe Travel Set
4 Travel Size Products
I’ve never heard of this brand but there’s 4 products in the nifty little train case! 4!!! I’m excited and can’t wait to try them! Included in this set:
Ultimate Youth Power Mask – 1.0 oz
Ultimate Youth Power Serum – .34 oz
Ultimate Youth Power Cream – .34 oz
Ultimate Age Renewal Neck Emulsion – .34 oz
(This set alone would cost around $65… monthly subscription is $24.95 – SCORE!)
Brad Biophotonic Skin Care
For some reason my photo cut this off… grr… my photography skills need a serious crash course! This product works to achieve a more evne skin tone by treating spots with Kojic Acid and Licorice and Bearberry extract. I am so going to love this.
Amlactin Triple Action
Alpha-Hydroxy Therapy Foot Cream
Deluxe Travel Size
I know of Amlactin from my dermatologist. He had told me to use it when I was getting bumps on the back of my arms. It didn’t help but maybe I’ll like their foot cream? I am currently addicted to A+D Ointment… I love it. So Amlactin has a lot to live up to.
All in all, I LOVED this box. The folks at Blush.com put out boxes for the hardcore beauty junkie and that’s me. If you get excited by new products and don’t like to limit yourself to just skinare or just makeup, then this one might be for you!
