Blush is usually my favorite monthly subscription box. It’s usually heavy on skincare, which is a love of mine. They usually send quite a bit, and often have several full sized products.
This month, however, my box only weighed 0.88lb leading me to speculate that most items would be samples. And I was right. I was also disappointed than my StriVectin is 0.25oz less than others I’ve seen posted…grrr
This is what I got:
First the samples…
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser ($0.25): I don’t mind getting face cleansers in foils. I can usually get 2 uses out of each foil and it’s enough to show me how well it removes makeup and how my skin feels after. This will be good for travels.
Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion ($0.25): another sample I’ll take on my travels. However, I don’t like body lotion in foils…it’s never enough for both arms and legs.
Suki Organic Cotton Washcloth ($11.95) – not currently available on Blush but on Suki’s website I found this price. It’s a nice washcloth and I wouldn’t mind more of these types of products. Just because.
Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel ($24.67 assuming this is 0.33oz) – this was the product pick of the month. It’s supposed to lock in moisture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This is tiny sample but I usually find with these serum like liquids, a little goes a long way.
Talika Eye Therapy Patch ($9.67) – one patch seems a little silly to me but it can be reused 3 times. The package does say one pair but it feels like one and the irections ont he back say to remove the patch (singular). I’ll update when I have m ore information. I just recently tried the anatomicals patches from last month’s Glossybox and really liked those so I am hoping these are similar.
Laura Geller Spackle Make-up Primer ($7.50) – I don’t get great results from primers so I made up trading this. Seemed like a lot of ladies in the forums were excited for this item though!
Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Microderm ($10) – another exfoliator, but I’m not complaining. I love this type of product and have liked other products from this line. It won’t get used for awhile though as I am getting quite the stash!
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid ($5.75) – I am not sure this is a product I need, but it does say its for all skin type and cleans pore which is never a bad thing. I may end up trading this one too, but I’ll do a little more research first.
DCL Ultra-Light Hydrator ($27.60) – this is a full sized item. I may give it a try in a few months because during the humid summers here lighter moisturizers are better.
StriVectin SD – The value will vary here because I noticed I got a smaller size than some other people. I have heard nothing but good things about this stuff and look forward to trying it out. Hopefully I have enough to use it as long as it says to see a difference!
I have heard that maybe Blush is now owned by Target or something like that? I really hope they aren’t drastically changing things and this is just a rarer light box. The value is still there (I estimated $111.54+ depending on the size of the StriVectin), I am just used to being a little more spoiled by this sub – I’ll till be sticking around to see how next month goes!
