Total Beauty Summer Prep Collection Review & Coupon
I bought it the day it was released, and they shipped it out very quickly!
The Box: The Summer Prep Collection
The Cost: $25 with free shipping
The Products: $95 worth of products for getting ready for summer.
Each box comes with a card that gives you a list of all the items included and a value breakdown.
Gleam by Melanie Mills Body Radiance in Light Gold – 1 oz Value $15
Nelson J Healing Mask Packets in Pomegranate, Coconut, and Rosemary Mint – Value $5.65 total
This gleam body shimmer was one of the spoiler items and I was excited to try it. (You will either get this in Light Gold or Bronze Gold). At first I thought the light gold was a little too light, but after I blended it in, it gave my legs a shimmery golden look. I’m so excited to try layering this over self tanner. (And Gleam Body Radiance products are cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free and gluten-free!)
Kitsch Basics Hair Ties – Value $9
These hair ties were the other revealed item – and they came with a 25% off coupon at MyKitsch.com.
Purlisse SPF 30 Sunscreen – FULL SIZE! Value $55
Cotz Face Natural Skintone SPF 40 – 2 g Value $1
Sun-tegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – 4 g total Value $3.50
At first I saw Purlisse and was not happy (Over the past few months Purlisse moisturizers seem like they have been in a ton of subscription boxes), but sunscreen is a completely different story. SPF is pricey, and normally subscription boxes just send tiny samples, so this full size Purlisse sunscreen is a win for me! (And it lets me not get frustrated about these other tiny SPF samples they included!)
Verdict: Based on my calculations, this box value is about $89 – a little less than the $95 they claim. (The card the include I think doesn’t properly calculate the value of the foil packets). That being said, if you’re going to use all the full size items in this box like I am, I think it’s a great value.
