Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review - June

Untoxicating Beauty is a new eco-friendly beauty subscription box. Unlike other boxes that send a variety of brands each month, Untoxicating Beauty sends out several products from one eco-friendly brand each month. It’s a little riskier if you don’t like the brand, but if you do – it can be a great value, and a great way to discover new brands!

As you can see from the picture, I was a little worried when I first opened this box as it was clear something had spilled. Fortunately nothing was too damaged.

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review - June 2014 Info

Each box comes with a letter detailing the brand featured in the box and why it is “untoxicating.” This month they are featuring The Grapeseed Company.

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review - June 2014 Lotion

Lemon Cake Sugar Body Scrub – Value $18

Lemon Cake Body Lotion – Value $19

These two items are my favorite discovery in the box – I love this natural lemon cake scent! The lotion is very light weight, and the sugar scrub has a very fine consistency, which is a nice change for a scrub.

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review - June 2014 Grapeseed

100% Pure Grapeseed Oil – Value $9

Cali Sun Stick SPF 30 – Value $13

This grapeseed oil turned out to be the culprit of the leak in the box. Fortunately the product is still 95% full. (Apparently the Grapeseed Company was created around the idea of turning the natural byproduct of winemaking into natural beauty products!)

I also like this sunscreen a lot – it goes on completely clear and has a nice subtle scent.

(This box also included a sample of their soap).

Verdict: I paid $35 for this box and received about $60 worth of products. I’m very happy with the value of this box – I’ll use all the products, and this brand is a completely new discovery for me! What did you think of the June Untoxicating Beauty Box?

  1. I don’t really like that they only send you one brand at a time; however, I would totally use all of these products. I think I am going to subscribe to this box. I prefer using natural beauty products, so this looks like a good box to try. The grapeseed oil is wonderful for your skin!

  2. I’m adding this to my list of boxes I want to try. I like how they differentiate themselves from other boxes by focusing on one company a month. I used to take grapeseed extract for my seasonal allergies. It worked wonderfully.

    • It’s a little expensive for me (I balk at anything much over $25 unless it’s quarterly)…but I would have been able to use everything in this box, and that counts for something. I think I’m also adding it to my list for sometime in the future.

  3. I like this box, sorta reminds me of a vegan cuts, yet more items i’d use …. I do wish the price point was more like $27ish – then I’d feel more comfortable trying it – Any box over $30 I’m always hesitant to try just in case if I don’t like most the items in the box — I do wish they would take more care in packing the items in the box — I’m sure that the leakage that happend in your box has happened in other boxes. Which makes this product more difficult to swap if someone does not like it. — I also don’t like reacurring Paypal payments – I know it’s cheaper for the box company, yet I don’t like using paypal that I uses my credit card for reoccuring payments. That’s why I canceled eco emi – I’ll still buy eco emi boxes yet only 1 time purchase boxes. – Maybe I’m being to negative, yet the more boxes I’ve gotten the more things that did not matter in my first few boxes matter more so now.

    • The nice thing about recurring PayPal payments is you can cancel them anytime. So there’s none of this business with not getting through to customer service to cancel a sub — simply stop the recurring payment. There’s also a lot of fraud protection built in with PayPal.

      • Thank you – I never thought of that – Good point. — I kept thinking – if it went through paypal, paypal goes through the credit card – it would be 2 hassels to deal with, if there is an extra charge

        • I just canceled one on PayPal yesterday. I decided I’d like to try BoxyCharm, but made myself give something up first. I decided to go with canceling Lip Factory. I like them, but seems like they’ve been stuck on a couple of the same brands lately (Teeez Trendy and Jesse’s Girl) that are hard to find anywhere if I wanted to buy more (I don’t usually shop directly from brands because you’re limited to that one brand if you want to meet a free shipping minimum — I like Ulta and Sephora and Amazon because you can combine items from lots of different brands). Anyway, Lip Factory is another recurring PayPal payment and was thus easy to cancel.

          I also like the ones where you can cancel directly from your account, though, like Sample Society and Birchbox.

          Not sure what I’ll do when my 3 months with Julep is up, whether I’ll keep going or have to call and deal with their customer service. Same with Glossybox but I have 9 months of that to go still. The ones I hate the most are the ones where you have to call or e-mail to cancel and it takes a few days so you don’t know whether or not the cancellation is going to work in time.

          PayPal should take care of refunding your credit card or other payment method, directly, although I’ve never had to deal with that.

          • I’ve also been thinking of getting boxycharm, yet I know this months box I would not use. The value seems good. Thank you for telling me about the others that use Paypal. — As far as Julep…..Since April I’ve had issues with them. Sometimes the boxes are missing stuff, show up opened, or old nail polishes are tossed in to boxes. I called and they gave me a skip option for next month ( I did not like July’s colors ). Then maybe the month after I’ll cancel. Yet I’m so close to 2000 points to get a free box, I don’t want to cancel till I get my free box. One thing I won’t do is buy anymore mystery colors or mystery boxes. — I’m also dealing with Glossy box right now, they said I don’t subscribe, got 2 boxes, waiting for the 3rd, yet I am under a 3 month reacurring subscription, no returned emails and even though I’m being billed when I log in it says my account is not active so I’ll be probably cancling that box next.

  4. I think I’d like to try it. It looks interesting and I think they gave you a variety of different products! You can also use grape seed oil in cooking and making salad dressings. It’s awesome to use!
