The box came with an information card detailing the items for January. The theme was “Detox Box.” (As a scientist, I have a lot of problems with the concept of “detox,” but I went into using the products with an open mind.)
Charcoal Aloe Face Cleanser – Listed Value $18
We’re off to a good start. I love skincare with charcoal in it. In a chemistry lab or with aquarium water, you can use activated charcoal to remove impurities, and it’s similar in skincare. I really think this is drawing gunk out of my pores on my nose. It is also non-drying, which is so important in winter.
Overnight Detox Face Oil – Listed Value $38
This is another good inclusion. I was looking for a new facial oil for use at night since I ran out of my last one. I do have oily skin but find I can avoid breakouts and still use oils as long as I exfoliate regularly. Anyway, this has a ton of plant extracts (read: antioxidants plus a little bit of antibacterial activity as well) and was nicely hydrating but didn’t get all over my pillow.
Black Magic Detox Sugar Scrub – Listed Value $14
I love body scrubs. I use them daily and I go through them so quickly, I have trouble keeping enough backups. This one is quite nice. The ingredients list is simple: activated charcoal, cane sugar, coconut oil, vitamin E, and a few essential oils. It exfoliates pretty well and is pretty invigorating as well, thanks to the peppermint extract it contains.
Konjac Sponge with Charcoal – Value $12.50 (Listed Value $10)
I can’t read the gold letters on the outer package so I don’t know the brand name. But, I do like konjac sponges (especially the ones with charcoal) and it was time for a replacement so this comes in handy. (I especially like using them with non-scrubby cleansers; they add some gentle exfoliation!)
Yogi “Skin DeTox” Tea (4 bags) – Value $1.22
I’m happy that Yogi Tea seems to be moving away from using licorice to sweeten their teas, as licorice is one reason I have not been a fan of Yogi Teas in the past. But this is a nice green tea with rose petals, hibiscus, and other herbs. (It does include stevia, as well.) This is basically a floral green tea and it’s actually not bad.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $83.72 for the January Orglamix subscription box. As usual, I had to take most of the values from the information card since the items were exclusive to this box. But – and I say this every month – I do feel you get more value than the price of the subscription. Plus, I love skincare with charcoal in it.
Note: if you are thinking of subscribing, look at several months of past reviews. This was a pretty skincare-heavy month. Other months will have loose mineral pigments/eyeshadows or will focus on fragrances (or a little of both).
