Discover With Marta Subscription Review – Holiday 2013
Discover with Marta is a beauty and skincare subscription box that ships every other month. You have buy the entire subscription upfront, but so far for me I think it’s definitely been worth it.
I really like that most of the skin care samples the send are made with natural ingredients, and this subscription ships worldwide!
Each shipment’s samples come in a reusable bag. Here’s the first look at what’s inside:
The Subscription Box: Discover with Marta
The Cost: $24 a box with free shipping (a one time up-front fee of $144)
The Products: 6 deluxe skincare and beauty samples delivered every other month.
Ships to: Everywhere! Free shipping to the US, and an additional $20 one time fee for International customers.
Each box comes with a letter from Marta detailing each of the items included and why she selected them.
(On the back of the letter she lists out all of the ingredients for each sample).
Astara Bio-genic Skincare Citrus Lavender Sea Salt Scrub – 1.5 oz Value $7
Blissoma Refine Clay Renewal Treatment – .5 oz Value $7.50
This sea salt scrub checks off everything I look for in a scrub: great scent, and enough oil to keep your skin moisturized after you wash it away!
Skinfinite LOL Eye Serum – 2 ml Value $6
Lumavera Oxygenating Masque – 5 ml Value $12
I had to include a quarter to show scale in this picture because this eye serum sample is SO tiny! This serum is a best seller at Truth in Aging, and supposed to be great on dark circles, but I just wish they sent out a bigger sample so I could actually try it for a week or two and see if I want to buy the full-size version.
(Super tiny skincare samples are a pet peeve of mine).
Amarte Hydrolift Cream – 10 ml total Value $7
My Prime Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer – 10 ml Value $11
I’ve sampled My Prime moisturizer before, and I like it a lot for helping keep my complexion matte under foundation, so I’m very happy to have more of this product!
Verdict: I paid $24 for this box and received about $50 worth of skincare products. Even thought I complained about the tiny eye serum sample, fortunately some of the items I like will last for a week or two, so this box is still a good value for me. (I also still need to try the masks, so I may end up liking this box even more!) It’s not my favorite box from this subscription (I hope they include at least one makeup item in the next shipment!)
