Beauty Army Review – Beauty Subscription Box – August 2013
Beauty Army is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription that’s a little different than Birchbox, Ipsy, etc. Instead of getting a box of beauty samples the subscription company selects for you, Beauty Army gives you a showroom to pick your samples from. 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 Army
The Cost: $12 a month
The 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: US
Nelson Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo 1 oz – Value $2.50
Marula Facial Oil – 1 ml Value $1.50
I 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 $2.50
Color Smash Hair Shadow in Gold Rush – Sample Value $5
I 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 $2.50
Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Daily Pore Scrub – 3 ml Value $.25
If 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?
