Orglamix Subscription Box Review + Coupon – November 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

orglamix-november-2016-box

Orglamix is a vegan and cruelty-free beauty subscription containing loose shadows, glitter pigments, aromatherapy roll-ons, and more. Many of the items in the subscription will be unique to the subscription and not available in the Orglamix shop (although they will have the same great formula).

I like the new boxes, by the way!

The box came with an information card detailing the items for November.  The theme was “Autumn Magic.”

orglamix-november-2016-eyeshadow

Natural Mineral Eyeshadow in Salted Caramel – Listed Value $12

Natural Mineral Eyeshadow in Spiced Mocha – Listed Value $12

Natural Mineral Eyeshadow in Pumpkin Cider – Listed Value $12

These are three wonderful, warm colors. Although I typically don’t wear neutral clothing, I am fond of earth tones in eyeshadow. These have a subtle hint of shimmer without being glitter bombs. The formula is nice, as is the pigment. Swatches below.

Crème Fraiche in Spiced Pear (2 fl oz) – Listed Value $6

This is a whipped soap with exfoliating crystals. I love exfoliators! I find that this one is on the gentle side, as scrubs go, and I love the scent. I received the box a few days ago and this is almost gone!

orglamix-november-2016-plumper

Natural Lip Plumper Gloss – Value $12.50

This is a little odd. The applicator is a rollerball, which I have not seen for a gloss before, and it was super difficult to actually dispense the product. It has a slight pigment to it (I tried to swatch it below). Unlike most lip plumpers, this does not seem to contain menthol, but it does have cinnamon oil, so I recommend a patch test before use – some people (myself included) are sensitive to cinnamon oil.

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Body Brulee (2 fl oz) – Listed Value $6

This is another great scent for fall. I still have this down by my computer as I have been using it for hand lotion. It absorbs quickly and does not leave my skin greasy so I am a fan.

Here are swatches of the lip plumper (top, hard to see) and the three eyeshadows in the same order as pictured above.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $60.50 for the November Orglamix subscription box. That is a typical value for this subscription, and the mix of contents is also typical. Most of the items are not available in their shop, so I had to take a lot of values from the information card. However, the listed values were comparable to the prices of similar items in the shop. With Orglamix, you are nearly always getting at least double, if not more, the price of the subscription back in products, plus many of them are exclusive. So if you like vegan, organic skincare, bath and body products, and loose mineral pigments, this is definitely a good choice.

What do you think of the November 2016 Orglamix box?

  1. I’ve emailed the owner several times and have always had prompt, courteous replies from her. She seems like a really nice person.
    I hesitate to subscribe full time, because I feel like I am too old for sparkly eye shadow, and this subscription seems to be heavy on the eyeshadow. However, I just loved the October box. Maybe I will resub for December since it is unlikely that they will send 3 more eyeshadows next month.

    • I am 39 and I wear sparkly eyeshadow and fuchsia lipstick and blue/green/black/glitter nail polish, etc., to work.

      They do seem to alternate between eyeshadow-heavy and low-eyeshadow months so your plan sounds like a good one.

  2. According to the BBB site, Orglamix gets an “F” rating from them. They apparently do not/did not resolve issues nor communicate with customers who had issues….. Looks like a good box and I was considering it before I saw that. Just thought potential subbers should know.

    • For what it’s worth, I don’t really trust BBB ratings for a lot of companies. It can be a financial issue for smaller companies to get good ratings there. Also there is only one actual review and there are only 6 ratings for Orglamix there, and one complaint may not even be about Orglamix, so it is not really a reliable sample size.

      I personally have never had any issues getting something resolved with Orglamix.

      Here is a story about payment for good BBB ratings:

    • I remember these people from when they sold on Etsy. They lied about the contents of the products, and closed up shop without resolving people issues or refunding their money. I was disappointed and angry, because I had actually loved the brand and didn’t know why my orders suddenly weren’t coming, or were coming with different labels on them that listed non-vegan ingredients in them. Honestly, it is beautiful makeup, but go knows what’s really in it.

  3. YES! I was dying to get someone else’s opinion on this, and I really appreciate your honest reviews of this box. (Love that you called out the “apocalypse” typos on their page while still appreciating the products that are good hehe.)

    I don’t usually like lip plumpers because I don’t like the tingling, and I was surprised that this one didn’t at all. The scent was really weird, and I couldn’t get past it after trying it twice. I was looking over the ingredients to figure out what it could be. It’s kind of basil-ish, which is just weird for a lip product. I ended up just trashing it between the scent and the formula.

    The lotion has grown on me. The scent seemed kind of off at first, but it’s really great at moisturizing without being greasy, you’re right – probably one of the better lotions, and doesn’t have anything I’m allergic to in it! I keep it at work since our hand soap in the bathrooms is so drying. I couldn’t tell what to make of the exfoliating cream soap or whatever it is, because again, the smell seemed off! But I set it to the side and will definitely try it with your stamp of approval. 🙂

    Now the eyeshadows….oh man! I have received several compliments on them!!! I think the colors are really great for blue eyes. (I’m sure they’d rock on brown, too, but just as far as the color wheel goes – lots of pop!) I love these, and they totally redeemed this box from a lip plumper disaster in my mind. 🙂 I’m a little sad there weren’t any fragrance rollerballs or balms, but triple eyeshadow is hard to beat.

    • I could barely even get the lip plumper out of the tube. If I put it on a hard surface and pushed it over a piece of paper, I could get some out.

      • Kid glosses use rollerballs. I remember, as a kid, getting them.
