Blush Mystery Box April 2014 Review

I seriously love my Blush Mystery Box and this month's was no exception.  Everything I was secretly hoping for came!

The Cost: $24.95/mo (plus tax)

What You Get: A box of $100 worth of full and deluxe size skincare, haircare and beauty samples, free shipping and a mystery gift!

This box only had five items this month but four of them were full size!  Also, I received a free mystery item and two samples along with the regular box.  Love!

Starting with my mystery gift and samples.  I was pretty impressed that I got a full sized product and a good one!

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle-  I don't actually use dry shampoo but I know that this would have made a lot of girls happy to find it in their box.  I did think it was a little weird that they included another dry shampoo since the main box had one in it as well.
Full Size Value: $19.50
Included Size: FULL SIZE

Sonya Dakar Omega-3 Repair Complex- This is better for acne prone skin as well as rosacea.  I cannot use it because it contains lavender oil which I am allergic to.  I think this is an natural brand as well.
Full Size Value: $42/1oz
Included Size: no amounts are listed but I'm guessing .17oz $3

Jade and Burdock Purifying Toner- sample packet- I'll be using this, I like trying new toners.
Oscar Blandi Volumizing Dry Shampoo- I got this in a FabFitFun (I think) box so I have a full size sitting on my vanity already.  This will go up for swap or stocking stuffer!
Full Size Value: $28
Included Size: FULL SIZE

Jonathan Infinite Volume Shampoo for Fine/Thin hair-  I do have fine and thin hair so maybe this will improve things!
Full Size Value: $18
Included Size: FULL SIZE

Cult Cosmetics Nail Polish in Laguna-  I'm really happy I got Laguna!  This is a great salmony pink!  I've already swatched it and need to remove my Nicole by Opi Roughles in order to apply it.
Full Size Value: $12
Included Size: FULL SIZE
And last but not least:

La Bella Donna Lip Crayon in Luscious- Just the color I wanted!  This is a great lip crayon.  It applies richly and smoothly with great pigment and a nice subtle shimmer.  Not sure how I feel about the liner part.  Mostly because the point is so thick and I prefer a nice thin line.  I'll see how it goes.
Full Size Value: $28
Included Size:  FULL SIZE

Darphin Stimulskin Plus Total Anti-Aging- This has a load of interesting plant related ingredients.  It says anti-aging but there is no retinol.  There's also, sadly, no vitamin C and the amount of vitamin e and hyaluronic acid is so small it's basically negligible.  That aside, I'm still going to try it because why not? :D
Full Size Value: $295/1.7oz
Size Included: .17oz (~$20)

So I'm very happy with this bag!  Just the lip crayon pays for the bag and the total value is kind of unreal. It's got a value of $106 and thats without the extra Klorane and samples ( about $130 with)!  Of course I have to reiterate that value is relative.  Frankly speaking, I will definitely be using the lip crayon, the Cult polish and the Darphin.  The two dry shampoos will go up for swaps because I have so much and I just don't use it.

However, it should be noted that swapping is awesome and I don't consider it a loss.  Being able to swap just makes every bag MORE worth it because I can get something I *will* use.  And dry shampoo is a highly swappable item.  I know, I know, its ridiculous.  You never knew there was a whole swapping underworld, did you?

You can send me an email at agirlinthegarden@gmail.com and I can send you a referral that will give you $10 off a $30 order.  You can use it on anything you want including a Blush Mystery Box!  That's how I got started :)  If you use the link I send you, I also will get $10 off, so thank you in advance! :)
