Total Beauty Collection Mystery Box Review – June 2013
About a week ago Total Beauty Collection offered a mystery box for $20 with a $100 value. This was the first time I know of they had a mystery box and it sold out in one day! Hopefully they have another one soon! (While this box is no longer available, there are other collections still available for purchase. Use coupon code TBC20 to save 20% off any box!)
The Box: Total Beauty Collection Mystery Box
The Cost: $20 with free shipping
COUPON: Use coupon code TBC20 to save 20% off any box.
The Products: 13+ deluxe and full size products.
Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm – FULL SIZE! Value $3.49
Alfaparf Milano Illuminating Serum – .25 oz Value $10
I love that Neutrogena Naturals is made without all the harmful chemicals I’m trying to avoid in beauty products, plus I can always use an extra lipbalm! I’m not crazy about the scent of this hair serum, so I think I’ll stick with the Moroccan Oil from my FabFitFun box (I still have over half a bottle left!)
Qtips Travel Pack – Value $2
Evolve UltraShine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – 2 oz each Value $12 total
If this box had just been 13 bottles of Evolve shampoo and conditioner and nothing else I would have been happy – I love this line of organic hair care! Plus these travel Q-tip packs are great to have handy, so I’m thrilled with these items!
Honest Face & Body Lotion – 1 oz Value $1.50
Honest Healing Balm – 1 oz Value $4.50
EBOOST Daily Health Booster – 7 Packets Value $5
Even though my house is full of Honest products, I can never have enough! I was very happy to see these in the mystery box.
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask – .35 oz Value $4.25
NYX Color Lip Balm in Arigato – FULL SIZE! Value $3
NYX Roll on Shimmer in Platinum – FULL SIZE! Value $4
This mask is a best-seller at Sephora and gets amazing reviews – and it has actually been on my list of products to try. Apparently you have to leave it on for a while (at least 20 min) and peel it off – but the results are fantastic. And it’s free of harmful chemicals like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances!
Ferro Cosmetics Blush in Terra Cotta and Suzie’s Glow – Samples Value $6
Juara Candlenut Body Creme – 5 ml Value $.33
Verdict: From what I can tell these boxes were supposed to include a $50 Gift Card/Coupon to NakedWines. My box was missing the card – but NakedWines doesn’t ship to my state so it really doesn’t make much of a difference to me. I paid $18 for this box (I used a 10% off coupon) and received about $56 worth of product. I’m definitely happy with the quality of the products I received (I think I’ll use everything except the hair serum and maybe the NYX products). My only issue with this box is that the $100 value they promised included a giftcard that not everyone can use (any other PA residents hate this like I do?) and you have to spend money to use the card. I hope if they do another mystery box they don’t include a giftcard/coupon in calculating the value. $18 for $50+ worth of products is still a great deal to me though, so I will definitely buy another Total Beauty Collection Mystery Box in the future!
