Every box includes an info card detailing each item featured, and the theme for the month. This month, the theme is “Celebration Time!” celebrating Beauty Joy’s third box.

Beauty Joy Box Subscription Box Review - January 2015 Geller

Laura Geller Baked Eye Pie Shadow Trio in Blueberry Muffin – Full Size!, value: $36

Femme Couture Get Luminous Highlighting Face & Body Luminizer – 2.2 oz (Full-Size!), value: $8.80

Beauty Joy guarantees one full-size item in each box, so I’m really glad to see that these are both full-size!

I like Laura Geller products, and this eye shadow trio has so much product in it!

This highlighter is really intense, so I recommend using very little, or mixing it into your regular body lotion. The shimmer is really pretty, though.

Beauty Joy Box Subscription Box Review - January 2015 Korres

Silvertone Chunky Bead and Pearl Bracelet – value: $10

Korres Cherry Lip Gloss – .06 fl oz (mini), value: $5.10 (listed as $6 on info card)

This bracelet is cute, but just not quite my style. My little sister-in-law will love it, though.

Korres is a brand that I really like. I haven’t tried their lip glosses before, but now I know I love them! This one isn’t sticky at all and has a very natural color to it.

Verdict: So far I’m impressed with Beauty Joy! They included some awesome brands and I love that there were 2 full-size products this month. The value for this box is great, too – everything adds up to $60! For $15, I’m definitely happy with that value.

What do you think?

  1. I got my February box, they sent me a tracking number but it was for the wrong box. I just received my March box today and never received a tracking email. March had a gold necklace, Urban Decay Perversion mascara sample, Bare Minerals full size eye shadow, mini Ciate nail polish, and Pharmacopia Verbena lotion that smells really good. I think it’s worth the $15, but the jewelry is low quality.

  2. I got my February box too, and I agree the box it came in wasn’t the greatest, just a plain brown box. But on their Facebook they said they had new boxes coming in and said sorry those Feb boxes were ugly and boring. So I am hopeful that the packaging is improving. Although really, the packaging doesn’t matter as much as the actual contents, which every month has been awesome!! So I can’t wait to see what March will bring!!

  3. I would not recommend this box to anyone! My January box did not arrive til end of February – I contacted them 3 times before they emailed me back! Now I’m still waiting for my february box and I’ve emailed multiple times but no reply. The tracking number says a shopping label was created february 18 but that’s it! Don’t subscribe to this company, you won’t recieve your product! Sadly I signed up for 3 months so I feel like I’ve lost my money on this one.

  4. I just got my box and it was terrible. Contained a lip fusion lipstick(, was full size but ugly color), a sample face wash, pocket hand sanitizer from bath and bodyworks and a cheap heart necklace like the ones you get in quarter machines at grocery store. Unfortunately I signed up and paid for three months so I’m stuck. I would suggest no one waste thier money on this, not worth it. Btw my box was a third of the size of Lizs and packed pretty shoddy.

  5. I’m thinking of signing up for this box, because I’m more curious then wanting the actual products. 2 things I’m hesitant on and that is the email to cancel. With a few other boxes the email to cancel has been a headache full of sales pitches when I’ve tried to cancel. Hoping this one would not be same way. I’m also sensitive to smell, been reading the posts about the jewelry smelling. Jewelry that smells bothers me a lot, ruins my impression of the box, and those pieces get tossed out. Price is great, decisions , decisions, decisions. Might wait for one more review to subscribe.

    • There are 4 prior months of reviews on ramblingsofasuburban mom blog

      • Thank You =)

  6. I signed up for 3 months in December. Loved the December box. Still waiting to receive my January box. My tracking number indicates a shipping label was created and thats it. Emailed CS who replied they would look into it and that’s the last I heard. Feb box is supposed to ship on 15th so we’ll see …

    • I never recieved January box either- they wouldn’t return emails – horrible customer service – told me they would refund tonight – not holding my breathe – they told me they would refund on February 2 also

  7. I can see this sub becoming popular fast. I love the Korres Cherry Lip Gloss. I finished it last month and miss it. Mini sizes are perfect for me.

  8. Is this month’s box still available? If we subscribe now, will we get this box or a different one next month? Thanks! So glad that I found your site last week, though it’s meant 2 new subs since I did!

  9. I also this box. Pretty good value but a word about the bracelet: wow! My teeth were tingling from the awful metal smell! I was washing my hands for hours to get rid of it. I wouldn’t even let my girls play with it. Awful!

  10. I don’t like most jewelry, so I’d be in this for the beauty items.

    I wonder if the high quality branding will last. And hopefully they don’t just use items that usually go on Hautelook for half off.

  11. wow, the value is really great on this one. I’m impressed!

  12. I have kind of a sixth sense with subscription boxes… I knew boxycharm was a gem over a year ago and I’m telling you… Beauty joy is going to be amazing! February is my first box and now I have the 4 best! IPsy, glossy box, boxycharm, and BeautyJoy!!!!

    • Please reply, just to tell me you were wrong about beauty joy, weren’t you?

  13. I tried the code, it didn’t work, but I signed up anyway. It’s such a great price I figured why not just try it out for a month or two! Thanks so much Liz!

    • I signed up when the code wasn’t working and I emailed them about it and they issued me a $2 refund! It’s worth emailing them if you want to, the customer service seems great so far!

  14. I just check the code as well works fine, I think its case sensitive. I did all caps no spaces and it worked perfecto on all the subs.

  15. The code does work and for all 3 subscription plans. I’m not sure if its case sensitive or anything, I tried in all caps

  16. I signed up for a three month subscription Friday. I received my receipt and thought everything was ok. Well, yesterday I got an email from them stating they shouldn’t have charged me shipping and they would credit my card. They caught it even though I did not. Great customer service!!

  17. Code works fine I just used it.

    First I had a space at the end when I pasted it, then I deleted the space and it worked fine!!

  18. I tried the code too and it does not work. Any suggestions??

  19. Hi I tried to subscribe and the code doesn’t work.

  20. I just signed up since I canceled two boxes this month, but the coupon code “SUBSCRIPTIONADDICTION” did not work for me.

    • I just reached out to them to let them know. Sorry about that. I’ll update when the coupon code is fixed!

  21. I was very excited for this box however I’m still waiting to recieve it and they said shipping went out on the 15th?! Something’s not right here.

  22. Can you still get this box?? I LOVE Laura Geller and hardly see her in sub boxes.

  23. This does look to be a good box, and excellent value. I don’t think I’d wear the bracelet though, so I’d need to see a couple more boxes before signing up.
    I hope you post more reviews.
