eSalon The Match Up Box Review + 50% Off Coupon – Nov 2015


The Match Up is a new subscription box from eSalon. Each month you get to pick out three full-size items or they will match you up with their products based on your haircare needs.

I had sampled their leave-in conditioner thanks to another subscription box, and I was a fan, so I had to sign up for this one!


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


The box comes with your selected items packaged in a tote.



The Subscription Box: The Match Up Box

The box comes with a card detailing the three items I picked out. (And it also lets me know I saved $18 by subscribing).


eSalon Get Heated Thermal Protect Hair Mist – Value $14

This product is super lightweight and I love the scent – it reminds me of the Beauty Protector fragrance. The formula is paraben-free, and designed to help protect hair from heated tools. Even on days when I don’t use my hair straightener I’ve been using this spray – it smells great and makes my hair soft!


eSalon Above the Clouds Volumizing Mousse – Value $14

This is mousse added some volume without adding any stiffness. It wasn’t a dramatic enough lift for me to reorder, but I’ll use the entire bottle.

eSalon Deeply Invested Nourishing Hair Mask – Value $19

This item is a winner for me. The scent is beachy/tropical, and like all other eSalon products I’ve tried, it is paraben and sulfate free. You leave it on your hair for about 10 minutes then wash out. Sometimes hair masks like this can leave my hair feeling weighed down, but this one was fine – no extra weight, and I could feel a difference in the softness of my hair.

Verdict: I paid about $35 for this box. The cost works out to $11.65 an item. I think that’s reasonable for full-size hair care products, that are color-safe. For my next month, I’m going to try out some of their products that are color-specific for maintaining your hair dye shade longer.

  1. I am interested given that I don’t seem to get a lot of non-styling hair products in my subs (BB and GB), if that makes sense. I’ve never gotten a rinse-out conditioner of hair mask.

    I did my first color with eSalon last month and have my second one shipping out on Monday, so I’ll be coloring again after about 5 weeks. (My roots are showing.) eSalon is including a complimentary Color Enhancing Gloss with my color. They say it’s available to add on to any future color orders. I think it’s cool that they’re letting me try it for free in hopes that I order more 🙂 I am not sure what the cost is, though.

    So far I have found that eSalon is very responsive to questions and comments, so I am inclined to trust them for my overall hair care needs.
