For the past few months, I have been reviewing Blush Mystery Beauty Boxes and have discovered some exciting new makeup and skin and hair care treasures that now have turned into beauty staples.  

What is so wonderful about this monthly beauty and makeup subscription service is that their panel of beauty experts has a sharp eye for finding the best products.  Furthermore, each box always has at least $100 worth of makeup, skin and hair care products from luxury brands for just $24.95 a month.  If you don't want to make a commitment, you can pay $34.95 for a one time purchase. 

As always, Blush Mystery Beauty Box came through with another impressive assortment with this month’s bundle of beauty goodies.  Here is what I found once I explored the contents of that familiar black bag.


July 2014 Blush Mystery Beauty Box:


1.  Great Barrier Island Bee Co. Manuka Honey Intensive Hand and Nail Cream–(1-oz. travel size )–$6

2.  Julien Farel Haircare Zero Frizz Restore (Curly & Frizzy)–FULL SIZE–$33

3.  Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel--Original Formula Packette–$3  

4.  Cattiva Cosmetics Waterproof Automatic Lip Liner (Dolce Diva)–FULL SIZE–$20

5.  Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Gloss Gleaming Temptations–(Smother Me With Kisses 040) FULL SIZE–$23
  
6.  Smartfx SmartEye Wrinkle LiftFULL SIZE–$60


Total Value: $145

The Great Barrier Island Bee Co. hand and nail cream is something you can never have enough of.  This stuff smells nice, is fast absorbing, and does help soothe dry hands to make them soft again. 

The Julien Farel Haircare Zero Frizz Restore is an unusual multitasking hair treatment that is recommended to use on dry hair to cleanse and condition. You concentrate the product at the roots and it will produce a low foaming lather that you leave on for a few minutes to allow the ingredients time to work before rinsing.  I think it did help tame my waves and curls and made them softer with more of a shine.  I will keep using this as a weekly treatment.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare packet of face peel is one that I have bought before. In fact, when I saw this packet in the bag, I was elated because it is practically the best peel that I have ever used–and the gentlest.  I would describe it like a bad skin eraser to refine the skin’s texture better than you can imagine.  With this little wipe, you can practically buff the pores away without redness and burning.

The Cattiva Cosmetics lip liner in Dolce Diva is a basic nude color that can adapt with a variety of shades or skin tones.  It was a bit drier in consistency, but it stayed put to and kept my gloss intact.

The Rouge Bunny Rouge gloss in Smother Me With Kisses was a shimmering raspberry-pink color with lots of shine and some gold to set it off.  Who can’t love that when it comes to dressing up your lips?

The Smartfx Smarteye Wrinkle Lift is a tinted eye cream and concealer in one.  The formula has “micro-fillers” for tightening fine wrinkles, puffiness, and under eyes bags.  I did not try it yet since I am currently testing another eye product. Soon, however, I am looking forward to trying it.

I think this was an awesome month for beauty lovers.  If you haven’t tried Blush Mystery Beauty Box, I highly recommend doing so because you always win with a fantastic value of products!

I would love, love, LOVE to get one of these! But $35 is just a little steep for me right now. But gosh I love those products. I have a couple of quick questions. Do you get to customize them? Do they ever offer a promo? Thanks for piquing my interest!

Hi Robin,

You don't customize. Their experts pick out the products for the month and shades. The shades can vary.

If you buy one box at time, it is $34.95. $24.95 for a monthly subscription
