I love how thoroughly they break down the details of the product they picked and also why they chose it, based off of your profile and preferences.

G.M. Collin PhytoWhite Cream – 1.7 fl oz, value: $66

They picked this for me mainly because I had listed that one of my skincare concerns was dull skin (thanks, lack of sleep!). This moisturizer is lightweight and is meant to help even and brighten skin tone, as well as help with anti-aging and hyperpigmentation.

It has a nice, natural scent to it and feels really good on my face. I’ve been using it a week, and I feel like it’s helping to brighten my complexion, but I don’t think I’ve spent enough time with it to know how it’s been helping with anti-aging yet.

Here’s a snapshot of the box itself. When I worked at Sephora, I developed a love of reading skin care labels! I know it sounds weird, but I learned so much about the ingredients and what each ingredient does that I love reading about the products.

Verdict: I’m really happy with this Beauty DNA box! I really love all the ways they are specific about why they picked this item for me – right down to the fragrance notes. I really like this product and am happy with what results I’ve seen with consistent use so far. The value is really nice, too! A $66 product for $25 is great!

  1. Okay, you guys will make me keep it. I signed on with a $10 coupon but since you guys say it is worth it. I will give it a try. I truly got it mixed up with dermstore subscription. A gal could go nuts with subs…LOL. Allure already.

    • Sadly, I am not at all impressed with the Christie Brinkley Closeup wrinkle cream. It’s doesn’t work on me. I tried it on nasolabial folds…knew it wouldn’t work on 11. I got a teeny change on undereye bags. I will try another month before canceling. Maybe this one just wasn’t for me. I am very dark skinned so maybe my skin was too heavy??

  2. Seriously I don’t know how they do it. $140 neck cream last month, $85 retinol cream this month… How do they do it?!

    • By sending you expired or substituted items. Every SINGLE item I got was either expired and smelled terrible, gave me a rash, or was a useless sludge. I had to unsub.

  3. Beauty DNA is one of my absolute favorites now! I’ve had it for five months so far and I’ve liked all five products. Three of them have been absolutely incredible with great results. I had my first month free so I’ve paid $100 total so far for over $400 worth of products that are customized to me. Plus I’ve found that it’s so nice to have a full size of the expensive products because then I have time to see if the results are worth the splurge. Between the value and discovery aspects of truly high end quality beauty products, I think this sub really fills a great niche!

  4. That looks like a great product! This sub box seems to offer a great value, but I can’t quite seem to get myself to purchase it because I already get so many skincare items in my other boxes.
