Oprah Circle of Friends Subscription Beauty Box Review
The Oprah Magazine Circle of Friends Premier subscription comes with perks including a luxury beauty box, a surprise gift, and the opportunity to try and keep products, so I had to sign up!
Here’s a breakdown of the subscription perk options:
So far the first perk I’ve received is this Luxury Beauty Box. (I’ll post about the surprise gift from the O list and the product testing whenever that happens!)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This box is packed and fulfilled by GlossyBox, so it will arrive in the outer regular GlossyBox shipping box, but the actual box is customized for Circle of Friends.
The Subscription: The Oprah Magazine Circle of Friends Premier Membership
The Cost: $199 a year for the entire program – not just this box
The Products: In addition to a physical + digital magazine subscription, plus a gift subscription to share, if you go with the Premier membership, you also get a luxury beauty box, a surprise gift from the O list, a birthday card from Oprah, and the opportunity to try and keep products.
Ships to: US
The box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
AERIN Rose Hand & Body Cream – .5 oz Value $4.75
Jouer Cheek Tint in Whisper – FULL SIZE! Value $22
Sometimes rose scented products can be a little overwhelming for me, but this hand and body cream is a pretty light scent. The formula is very moisturizing too – and it absorbs quickly.
The Jouer Tint in whisper is gorgeous. This shade is a beautiful shimmery peach. It’s well-pigmented, but also pretty difficult to over apply since it isn’t a deep color. The amount of shimmer is just right for adding a little glow without making it look like you are wearing shimmer! I think this is my favorite discovery in the box.
VICHY Neovadiol Lumiere BB Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $42
I’m always a little skeptical when a product comes in a “universal shade” for all skin tones. I was expecting the general beige color that these universal skin tone products typically come in, but the cream is actually a pink/slightly peach shade. It goes on sheer, and while I didn’t notice any of the promised sculpting effects, it did give me an overall more even skin tone, and it feels weightless.
Bodyography Nail Lacquer in #GLOSSYBOX – FULL SIZE! Value $8.50
Doll 10 Defining Mascara 360 – FULL SIZE! Value $12
This barbie-pink nail polish has a subtle purple micro-shimmer in the formula – it looks like a great summer pedicure color to me. (I know we just started January, but I’m already thinking of the next seasons!)
This mascara looks like a sample size, but it is actually designed for lower lashes, which is explains the small size of the brush and tube. I don’t usually wear mascara on my lower lashes, but the tiny brush was great for getting corner lashes too. The formula is pretty good, but not one of the best mascaras I’ve tried.
This set is probably the best way I’ve seen perfume included in a beauty box. I love that you can spray the ceramic ornament to keep in your closet, clothing drawer, etc. And the au The Vert scent is nice too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $122. I think it is a fabulous box, and I’ll use everything, so I’m very happy with the curation. It’s difficult to analyze the value just yet though since I paid $199 upfront for all the perks of this subscription, and I’ve only received the beauty box so far. Right now I can just say so far – so good! I’ll make sure to do new posts when I get my O-List gift item and my item(s) to try and keep!
