Blush Mystery Beauty Box Review – January 2015
Blush Mystery Beauty Box is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box from Blush.com. I’ve been very impressed with this subscription in general because of the value (usually over $100), the brands (typically at least a few high-end lines), and the size of the items (everything is usually full sized or deluxe sized).
FYI – Originally this subscription sent out a lot of makeup, but lately it seems like hair products and skincare products are the most common.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Blush Mystery Beauty Box
The Cost: $24.95 a month (or $34.95 for a one time purchase)

The December was missing a card/info sheet, so I’m happy to see the January box is back to business as normal.
On the flip side of the card is a coupon code for $10 off any $75+ purchase from Dermstore – JAN10.
Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment in N Medium – .16 oz Value $7.20
SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream – .13 oz Value $9.50
This BB Cream/gel is probably a shade too dark for me (I still don’t know why they send out skintone specific BB cream shades in this box since it isn’t customized). I really like the formula though – it is very lightweight, provides coverage, and seems to absorb and go instantly matte.
This SkinMedica repair cream sample is probably too small to try for a week or two and hope for results, but with just once use I am impressed with how quickly the formula absorbs.
Cargo New Essential Lip Gloss in Vienna – FULL SIZE! Value $16
Glo Minerals Glo Lip Stick in Spark – FULL SIZE! Value $17
Good news – this lipgloss goes on sheer! (The almost neon purple shade goes on with just a hint of color and a very shiny finish).
I also like the Glo Minerals Lip Stick shade. This lipstick has a bit of a matte finish, and if I could change anything about it – I wish it was just a little more moisturizing.
Eau Thermal Avene Cleanance Gel – FULL SIZE! Value $20
Talika Bio Enzymes Mask (subscribers will receive 1 of 3 variations) Value $12
It’s so weird to me that they sent this Eau Thermal Avene Clearance Gel in last month’s box too. I’m not sure what the explanation is, but considering that the January box has a info card, and a theme, I’m starting to feel like the December box was kind of thrown together.
I haven’t gotten a chance to try this mask yet, but I’m happy with the version I received – I can always use tightened pores!
Medicell Advanced Moisture Eye Mask Duo – Value $10
Hydroxatone Headband – Value $3?
These eye mask gels are paraben and fragrance free, so I’m especially excited to try them. And this spa wrap/headband is a nice non-beauty item extra considering the masks included in this box.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $94. If I ignore the fact that Blush Mystery Beauty Box sent out the exact same Avene product last month, I think this is a well-curated box. I like the renew and refresh theme. And so far every product I’ve tried so far has been a hit. Of course, factoring in the December box, this box feels a little off.
