The box comes with a card detailing the three items I picked out. (And it also lets me know I saved $36 by subscribing).
eSalon Heart Lock It Color Safe Shampoo – Value $15
This shampoo is paraben and sulfate free. I always look for sulfate free hair products since my hair is color treated, and I like that they have a line specifically that is color safe. This scent is nice (a floral/tropical blend), and the formula seems great too. I struggled to get the pump to work at first, though. Quick tip – pull it up first! (Also good to know – eSalon does a great job of packaging their hair products to prevent spills in shipment!)
eSalon Get Lifted Root Lift Spray – Value $15
This is a super lightweight spray. It doesn’t add any crunch or heaviness like some volume products do, and it smells so good! (If you like the Beauty Protector scent, you’ll like this one). I didn’t notice a lot of volume after spraying it and blow drying my hair, but I’m thinking I may not have used enough.
eSalon Medium Round Brush – Value $21
Of course, I had to add the most expensive item to my bundle! (I have the same strategy with my Honest Essentials subscription – even if I don’t really need the item). This brush has a 1.5″ ceramic barrel designed to heat up and maintains heat while styling. I think it’s a quality brush for the price too.
Verdict: I paid about $20 for this box (50% off first box plus $4.95 shipping), and I’m very happy with the products for that price. At the regular pricing ($30 a month plus $4.95 shipping), the cost works out to $11.65 an item. I think that’s reasonable for full size hair care products, and I plan on continuing my subscription so I can try out more from their product line. (I also like that their products are paraben free!)
