BEAUTY JOY APRIL 2015 - info

Every box includes an info card detailing the items featured.

BEAUTY JOY APRIL 2015 - items 1

Too Faced Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss in Watermelon Ice – .1 fl oz (full size), value: $14.40

I was thrilled to see a premier cosmetic band like Too Faced in the box! At first, I thought that this gloss was probably an old/discontinued product but it’s not, and it’s still being sold on Too Faced’s website! The info card values this at $16, but it’s only listed at $14.40 on their website, so that’s the value I used.

Tocca Body Cream in Cleopatra Crema da Corpo – 2 oz, value: $4.44

I’ve tried this cream before thanks to other subscriptions (like Birchbox) and I like it alright, so I’m happy to have a backup.

BEAUTY JOY APRIL 2015 - items 2

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisturizing Lather Shampoo in Wild Ginger – 1 oz, value: $3.25

Keratin Cream Rinse in Wild Ginger – 1 oz, value: $3.25

I don’t get super excited about hair samples, but I’ve definitely never tried a keratin rinse before. I guess I’ll have to give it a try!

BEAUTY JOY APRIL 2015 - items 3

Blue Gemstone Bracelet – value: $8

This bracelet looks to have been sent out in variations of different colors and stones. I’m happy with the blue, though – I wear a lot that this will go with, and this style is so summery.

Verdict: This was a pretty good Beauty Joy box! I recognized all the brands (except for the tag-less bracelet), and the Too Faced lip gloss alone is worth the value of the box. As far as value goes, everything adds up to $33.34, which is a value I’m happy with!

  1. I agree with those who said that this is not a very good box, and I don’t recommend it. I received Dec 2015/Jan 2016. The makeup is not as nice and less in quanitity compared to etsy. The jewelry (it was a necklace) is VERY cheap. For $5 more per month, for less makeup and cheap tin jewelry, it was a disappointing box.

  2. This has to be the worst beauty subscription I have ever had. I signed up for this months ago expecting a nice box, and instead I have been charged twice and still have not gotten a box. I have tried emailing them which is the only way to contact them, and they do not respond. I have finally disputed the charges with my credit card. Do not try this box at all!

    • Exactly same thing happened to me. Wish I read this before I subscribed. Never order this box.

  3. Never got my May box and was promised a replacement, but so far nothing. This was supposed to be my first box and I was super excited about this. Now I regret it. The customer service for this box is bad, they won’t even respond to my multiple requests for assistance. I asked them repeatedly for a tracking number on the replacement they promised and when that never happened, I asked them to just credit me for a June box. I have not heard a word since May 28th. I will see if I can recoup my money from my credit card company now. This has been a terrible experience for a first time subscriber. FYI only.

    • I have the same problem! I’m still waiting for my June box! I sent three emails and tried calling them. They saw my message on Facebook twice and just ignored me and they never picked up the phone when I called. I also will be contacting my credit card company tomorrow for a full refund for both boxes that I’ve been charged for. I live in Canada and there is NO WAY it takes a month to ship something here from Florida.

    • Yeah, they’re pretty sketchy. I am lucky enough to have gotten all 3 boxes I signed up for, but as soon as the 3 mos sub ran out, I cancelled. Everything from the card listing the items to the grammatically incorrect e-mails screamed cheap to me. You ladies who are having trouble, try calling them out on facebook, where it appears they do answer people. Good luck!

  4. Has anyone else gotten their May box yet? I sent BJ a email about mine, but wanted to see if it was just my box or everyone.

    • I just got mine today but this one I bought for $22. I think it was a Mother’s Day special box.

    • May boxes have not shipped yet. Their boxes ship out on the 15th of each month.

    • I just got my May box, bit disappointed, the makeup is like Lip Monthly and Luna for You leftovers, that are already super cheap. But there’s a full size Laura Geller highlighter that people will like, I just don’t use highlighters but love Laura Geller.

      • Mine is scheduled to arrive today… It will be my first one. I hope it’s good!

  5. Wellll, hello there, subscription #9! 😀 I mean, why not? YOLO and all that. And I like the idea of a piece of jewelry included, only I hope it’s not earrings since I don’t have pierced ears. I swear, this site is so great but it’s such an enabler, lol.

    • Mary, you crack me up! And I couldn’t agree more about this site enabling my new box addiction!! I just signed up for this one too (though we won’t get the April box) with $2 off using coupon SUBSCRIPTIONADDICTION. This is beauty box # 7 for me! I also just started getting a few food ones. 🙂

      • Hi, fellow addict! 😀 Yeah, it’s too bad we won’t get the April box, I’ll just have to be patient. Actually, it’s a bit of a bummer that these sub boxes all arrive mid-month. So I get a pile in 2-3 days, then nothing. Can’t they have more consideration for my needs and stagger their deliveries so I get a box every 3 days? lol I haven’t pulled the trigger yet on any food boxes, but I’m really tempted by Plated since I hate meal planning.

  6. ginger is my favorite everything, sooooo i broke down and subscribed.

    • …and also immediately unsubscribing before the 1st because I had a -$3 coupon code, but realistically, the $5 value over the $10 staple boxes (ips&bb) just really isn’t there.

  7. I love getting this box every month. I love the fact that is has a piece of jewelry. I tried the shampoo and rinse and really like it 🙂

  8. I received all the same items, except my bracelet is not gemstone, but small flat shards of light colored seashells. This bracelet is exactly like the cheap souvenir elastic bracelets I’ve seen being sold in every seaside town I’ve ever been to, so I’m disappointed with it – its’ value is about $.50 anywhere in Florida 🙁
    Very happy with the other items, though jewelry is always “iffy”.

  9. The bracelet reminds me of family vacations as a teen. It has nice items.

  10. I liked this month’s box, my bracelet was a reddish brown. I really like the lip gloss, the lotion smells amazing.

  11. Since last months box- had some potentially old bare minerals shadow I was supsicious of the too faced gloss (even though I love it!) Since too faced had a lot code (unlike Bare minerals) I was able to see that is was manufactured over a year ago (13months)- Just an FYI

    • Oh..that’s not good. Sounds like they are sending old product

    • Gina, that’s definitely great information! I know I look out for items that are no longer being sold on the brands’ websites and such, but I didn’t think to check lot codes. Thank you!

  12. If we sign up now, can we still get this box? I haven’t heard of it either and it looks good!

  13. Oh wow! beauty and jewelry this sub looks awesome!!! might give it a try the too faced product looks awesome!

  14. I’ve never heard of this subscription but that’s a nice box for $15. I may give it a try! Thanks!
