Discover With Marta Subscription Box Review

In my never-ending quest to subscribe to all the beauty boxes, I decided it was time to subscribe to Discover with Marta from Truth in Aging. This box ships every other month, and you must pay the full year up front ($144), but after seeing what’s in the first box I received – I definitely think it’s worth it!

It looks like they are still shipping the Summer 2013 box, so if you’re interested and sign up soon, I think you would still get this box.

Each box comes with a sheet detailing every item in the box and a letter from Marta.

BRAD Biophotonic Skincare Ultra Peel – .25 oz Value $25.75

Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub – 30 ml Value $5.30

This Ultra Peel is supposed to “reveal youthful looking skin by promoting cell renewal while fighting pigmentation, dryness, acne, fine lines and wrinkles.”

I can’t wait to try both of these items – I love finding new natural and organic skincare products.

W3LL PEOPLE Universal Multi-Use Color Pot in Moonstone Glow – .1 oz Value $10

I use W3LL PEOPLE lip balm and love it – it’s a great natural cosmetic brand. This Moonstone Glow will definitely go to use immediately as my new highlighter!

Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream in Light Tint and Natural Tint  – .1 oz each Value $7 total

These samples only have about two uses in them each, but it was enough for me to tell that I like the coverage this BB Cream provides. (For now I’m sticking with my Supergoop! CC Cream though).

Verdict: I paid $24 for this box ($144 up front), and received about $130 worth of high quality skincare and beauty samples. I am THRILLED with the value of this subscription! I also really like that every item selected for this box is natural or organic. I will use every single item, and I can’t wait for my next Discover with Marta box to arrive. What do you think of Discover with Marta?

  1. This box looks amazing! Perhaps even the best-value-for-your-buck box out there! Whenever, I have an extra $144 (probably after the Holidays) I will sign up!!!

  2. Oh wow, I would also be rushing over to sign up for this if it wasn’t for the paying up front for a year in advance, just can’t do that…… too bad, maybe they’ll change to monthly if they realize that enough people are in interested in this type of sub.

  3. I got the Charcoal Scrub from ipsy too, and I found it to be a very gentle scrub. Can easily be used every other day. The Snowberry sample pack looks awesome.

  4. Even better you paid $12/box and got $130 value!!!! Just stinks having to pay upfront. Bummer.

    • Wouldn’t it be $24/box since you only get a box every other month?

  5. Would absolutely subscribe if it weren’t a year up front. Just not in my unemployed budget. Maybe next year.

  6. That Jojoba Charcoal scrub came in my Ipsy bag last month. It’s very nice, but I find it a little messy so it stays in my shower.

  7. This looks amazing! Shame you have to pay for it all up front.

  8. Well you got me to subscribe to yet Another box…

    • 🙂 I hope you like this one! Which other boxes do you subscribe to?
