This is one of the few beauty subscription boxes I wasn’t subscribed to – so I thought it was time to sign up!The Box: Beauty ArmyThe Cost: $12 a monthThe Products: 6 samples you select from your showroom each month. (Good news – you can skip any month if you aren’t interested in the samples).Ships to: USNelson Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo 1 oz – Value $2.50Marula Facial Oil – 1 ml Value $1.50I was thinking of buying the Nelson Beverly Hills hair care collection from Total Beauty Collections – but I wanted to try it first – this sample worked out perfectly!Anywear Hair Ties – Value $2.50Color Smash Hair Shadow in Gold Rush – Sample Value $5I will always take more hair ties! I couldn’t pass up that sample. Also, I totally messed up and didn’t read when selecting this Color Smash sample – I thought I was going to be getting eye shadow – not hair shadow! Apparently you just smash the color against your hair and seal it with hair spray. (Wash it out to remove). I have yet to experiment with hair chalk, but maybe this shimmery gold is the right color for me to try!Adonia Bronzing Organic Self-Tanner Serum – 3 applications Value $2.50Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Daily Pore Scrub – 3 ml Value $.25If I had a choice, I almost never would pick foil packets for samples, but that was all that was left for me to pick from, so I decided to go with these two. I love the Yes To Carrots brand, so this Daily Pore Scrub will be handy for travel. (I also highly recommend their grapefruit face scrub).Verdict: I paid $12 for this box and it has a value of about $14.50 – not bad, but I do wish they had more deluxe sized samples to pick from. Do you subscribe to Beauty Army? Any tips for getting good samples to show up in your selection window?Written by Liz CadmanLiz is the founder of My Subscription Addiction.
