Saffron Rouge Beauty Subscription Box Review - May 2014 Gloss

Lily Lolo Lip Slick in Scandalips – FULL SIZE! Value $16

Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eye Shadow in Hellebore – Almost Full Size (2 g vs 2.5 g) Value $11

This lip gloss is super shiny without being sticky, and I like the bright pink hint of color too! I love Alima Pure too, so this eye shadow is another win for me!

Saffron Rouge Beauty Subscription Box Review - May 2014 Powder

W3LL PEOPLE Hedonist Bronzer in #52 Sample – $3

Red Flower Orange Quince Steam Room Mist – 8.9 ml – Value $3.25

This Red Flower Steam Room Mist is supposed to give your skin the same benefits as if you were sitting in a steam room. And it happens to smell lovely too!

Saffron Rouge Beauty Subscription Box Review - May 2014 Skincare

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel – .5 oz Value $8

Primavera Calming Moisture Cream – .27 oz Value $12

This soothing gel is supposed to be great to use after shaving, sunburns or insect bites – definitely a great selection for a summer ready box! (And I feel like I say this about everything from Saffron Rouge Inner Circle – but it smells amazing!)

Verdict: I paid $25 for this box and received over $50 worth of makeup and beauty products. I’m very happy with the value, the products, and I discovered a new brand this month (Lily Lolo). I’ll use everything in the box too, so I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth!

What did you think of the Saffron Rouge Inner Circle products this month?

  1. Just got my June box – Finally! – I love it! – Nothing I want to swap from it, which is great!

  2. Has anyone gotten their June box yet? Mine shipped over a week ago but still hasn’t arrived. I hate the lack of tracking number!

    • I’m glad you brought that up . I have not gotten mine either and have been wondering when I’ll be getting it. Even though it was shipped over a week ago.

    • Just got mine today!

    • Did u get your box yet? — I got my June box today! Finally! I really was thinking about canceling the box this month, last month was bla, just to try another box. Yet the products are fun. Ginger Lime Hand Cream, Tahitian Vanilla Body Cream, a natural lip gloss and a few other products.

  3. Liz,
    Didn’t we get Lilylolo last month in our Petit Vour box? I love that we are getting to sample multiple things from their line! Truly wonderful!!

    • Yep – I totally forgot that the eye shadow palette was Lily Lolo!

  4. I loved the products but like others here I was bummed they were so small. you can call the gloss and mineral eyeshadow full size but the other 4 not so much. Which is a shame since I like the SPF, the spray and the moisturizer and would have loved to have a somewhat larger size. The bronzer cracked me up because it was packaged like it was going to be full sized but instead it was a teeny tiny sample. I’m a die hard self tanner so I can handle a dark bronzer, but I definitely need more than this to get more than 2 uses out of it. For $25 and based on past months I expected well, more. As in deluxe sized at least.

  5. Lily Lolo was also in April’s Petit Vour. It was the eyeshadow palette with some great natural colors. I like the products and love they are natural!

  6. I’m actually really happy with this box. I swapped half the items in last month’s box, so I’m very satisfied I like every single item this month. I love the lip gloss and eye shadow (I have been using Alima Pure for years now and their products are so high quality and beautiful!). I’m ok that the bronzer is sample sized because I will only use a tiny bit at a time. I’m looking forward to seeing how the soothing gel works and steam room mist… haven’t tried anything like that before.

  7. While this isn’t the greatest month I still love everything I received! I think the last two month’s were better but obviously there is going to be a month thats not as great in every subscription. Overall I would say this is one of my fav. subscriptions yet!

  8. I got this box and I like all the products. What I was disappointed in was the size of the samples! The bronzer might have had an 1/8 tsp. in the jar. Maybe one use??? The primavera though it was a decent tube, I couldn’t get any to squeeze out of it try as I might!!! : ). I did love the lip gloss and eye shadow. I am really surprized at Well People putting out such a sloppy useless sample. And Primavera as well. Very disappointing. Their quality control is terrible.

  9. I just got this box in the mail. It was my second box. I’m not impressed with this box the items or the value. Dr. Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel is to tiny for me to even want to try. The bronzer does not match my skin tone, I don’t use eye shaddow, am allergic to oranges. The only 2 things I’m keeping are the Primavera Calming Moisture Cream and the Lily Lolo Lip Slick in Scandalips. I’m not into Lip Glosses yet I did try this one and I actually like it. I like the color, and it stays on for a while, My favorite part of the lip color is it smells so yummy, just like chocolate. Even though I’m disapointed in the box because of finding a new lip color with a great smell, I will continue the subscription. Saffron Rouge is one of my favorite boxes because of everything being vegan / organic / healthy. I also like the care they take in wrapping the items in fun colors and shipping the small box in a bigger box to make sure it arrives securely. Customer service is also great.
