Saffron Rouge Inner Circle Review – December 2013

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


Saffron Rouge Inner Circle is a new natural and organic beauty subscription service. I’ve been subscribing for a few months, and I’m very impressed with the size of samples, and the value in each box.


If you’re looking to try more natural beauty products in 2014, I definitely recommend signing up for this subscription box!

Saffron Rouge Inner Circle Brochure

Each box comes with a folded sheet from Saffron Rouge detailing each item they selected for the box and how to use it.


Suki Lucious Lips Berry Duo – FULL SIZE! Value $31.95

(I just realized you can see my Golden Tote cardigan in the mirror reflection!) I love the Suki brand, and these lip tints are perfect colors for me, plus the lip butter is super moisturizing.


Vapour Nail Polish in Captive – FULL SIZE! Value $12

When I was taking this picture I assumed this bottle was a mini since it’s so small, but turns out it’s full size! Considering I’ve never finished a nail polish bottle in my life, I guess the size of the bottle doesn’t matter that much!


Inika Bronzer in SunLoving – FULL SIZE! Value $35

I can’t believe all these full size products! I love the Inika brand – I now use their foundation every day after sampling it in a previous Saffron Rouge Inner Circle box. This bronzer is pretty dark for my skin tone right now, and a little goes a long way, so I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it in the summer months!


Living Nature Eye Pencil in Midnight – FULL SIZE! Value $20

This eye liner went on very smooth, and it smudges easily too. It stayed in place the whole day I wore it, but when I accidentally bumped my eye with my hand, a little of the liner came off on my hand.

Inner Circle Alima

Alima Flocked Sponge – Value $6

I wasn’t too excited about this sponge compared to the rest of the items in the box – but then I read the reviews! It seems like this is the miracle tool for perfect mineral foundation application. I can’t wait to try it!


Dr. Hauschka Eye Solace – 10 ml Value $6.40

Another brand I love! This formula is supposed to reduce puffiness and calm irritated eyes. (You soak two cotton rounds in the formula and place them over your eyes for 10 minutes).

Verdict: For me, the December Inner Circle box is absolutely amazing! I paid $25 for this box, and I received over $110 worth of natural and organic beauty products! I’m so pleased with how many full size makeup products they included, and I already can’t wait for the January box.

What do you think of the December Saffron Rouge Inner Circle box?

  1. Hey Liz I just subscribed to this box today. Do you know when they ship their boxes every month? Thanks!

    • I’m not sure, but I haven’t gotten a shipping confirmation email yet.

  2. I’m loving the Saffrom Rouge box. I prefer organic products when I can find them but ti’s not easy. I love everything I have received in my boxes & recommend it to everyone I know. I’ve been asked about discount codes as well but I don’t think we’ll ever see them because the box value is so high. Ihear they sold out in December. Hurray!!

  3. Omg I want this box! I’ll finish out Birchbox and see if I want to keep it so I can take that money and get this box. Wow I love your review. Always getting me hooked on new boxes!

    • Thanks – always happy to help! I think you’ll love Saffron Rouge – I know I do! 🙂

  4. Are there any coupons or anything to subscribe to this box? I’ve been looking for a box to subscribe to and this December box just won me over and I need this one! Thanks!

    • I’ve never seen a coupon for this box – sorry!

  5. I’m impressed with Dr. Hauschka, you don’t see that often in a sub box.
    Not crazy about the Suki lip colors, got them in a Yuzen box and found them hard not creamy.

  6. I love this box as well. You get high quality, natural products and its truly the best suprise of the month!

  7. Annd… officially just cancelled Birchbox and signed up with SaffronRouge. The quality is so much better and more in line with where I’m headed with skincare and makeup.

    • I hope you love it as much I do! It’s becoming one of my favorite boxes to get each month!

    • I just cancelled BB, and joined Glossy Box didn’t see SaffronRouge before deciding. Was not thrilled with December Glossy Box will see how January is and then may switch to this, although the prices keep going up and I want to stay in the $20 range!

  8. I ordered the November box after I read your review of it, Liz, and I love the products. THANK YOU so much for turning me on to Saffron Rouge! I received the same box you reviewed (and love everything) within a week of ordering it ~ Wow! ~ I was stunned that it came so fast. I just received notification that the December box was shipped, and hopefully it will arrive early next week. Thanks so much for your “heads up” with this review on the goodies coming my way – I cant wait!

    • Yay – I’m so glad you love it too! It’s definitely one of my favorite subscription discoveries of 2013! 🙂
