Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review – Sept 2014

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review – Sept 2014 Box

Untoxicating Beauty is an 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!

I really like this box since they have featured a lot of brands that I haven’t seen in subscription boxes before, so I’m a little bummed to report that they are currently pausing their subscription. (All subscribers will get a refund for the October box).

They sent an email to subscribers letting us know that they’ve gotten a lot of feedback on the boxes and will be back with something even better in 2015.

I hate to say it, but I don’t think they’ll be back. Typically “pausing” a subscription is a softer way of “canceling” it. And I can’t think of any good example of a subscription box company that paused for several months and then successfully returned. I hope I’m wrong though!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review – Sept 2014 Facts

Each box comes with a letter detailing the brand featured in the box and why it is “untoxicating.” This month they are featuring Intelligent Nutrients Hair Care.

Untoxicating Beauty Box Subscription Review – Sept 2014 Info

They featured this exact same brand last month, so I’m not surprised this is their last box. Sending the exact same brand two months in a row is not OK.

Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Leave-In Conditioner – Value $31

Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Volumizing Spray – Value $31

Fortunately I really like the shampoo and conditioner from this brand in the August box, otherwise I would be pretty disappointed to find that they were featuring the exact same brand two months in a row.

Verdict: In general I’ve really enjoyed this subscription and I’m sad to see it is ending (at least for now). I know it’s not an ideal subscription for everyone, but I liked trying out a few full size products from a new brand each month.

  1. I ordered from the very start and locked in the $27.50 a month. I was so surprised that they sent the box and gave the refund. I actually liked the products the last two months, so I was happy with the same brand both months. I think this subscription would be better if boxes were sent out about 4 times a year or if they did only special edition boxes. The products are full size (which is great) but it takes a while to use up the products. I do hope they are able to return.

  2. This explains a lot. I contacting them in the past about buying a box and also tried to sign up for a sub in September and couldn’t find information about it on the website. I hope they come back next year.
