This is a review of the Monthly VIP box ($29.95 a month). For your reference – my color preference is neutral/light.

Every box includes a folded info card.

The card provides details about each item and the retail values. I appreciate that they also use a mark to indicate every item that is vegan.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics Anti-Aging Sun Screen Stick SPF 30 – 0.56oz Value $22

This sunscreen stick is a physical sunscreen made with physical UV blocking ingredients like red raspberry seed oil, coconut oil, and seabuckthorn oil. Since beeswax is their second ingredient on the list, it has a natural beeswax scent to it.  

Benevolent Beauty Box July 2017 Box

Although the information card stated that it’s sheer – I find this sunscreen stick too oily and sticky for my skin. (I waited for almost 5 minutes and it didn’t absorb at all.) The scent is definitely not my favorite, so I’ll limit my use to body rather than face.

Laritzy Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Limited Edition in Nudes – 0.1oz Value $24

This liquid lipstick is cruelty-free and vegan, and I am totally in love with this color! The texture is light and sheer, but it’s very pigmented and dried down to a matte finish that lasted me more than 5 hours without any uncomfortable feeling. It’s also transfer-proof and smelled like vanilla cupcakes!

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Perfect Glo Illuminator – 20ml Value $29

This is a big tube of liquid highlighter! I’ve used it both alone and mixed with foundation, and I liked the result! It gave me a sheer, natural, luminous glow without any glittery particles. I can see myself using this on my face, body, and décolleté – and I feel like it will never run out!

Moody Sisters Lightweight Moisturizer – 4 fl.oz Value $16

This moisturizer is, by far, my favorite discovery in this box! I honestly thought it was a body lotion at first since the bottle is so big! This lotion has aloe vera juice as its base ingredient and it instantly absorbed into my skin without feeling oily or sticky. It has a light peppermint scent that reminds me of candy cane. I love it as a morning moisturizer as it made my skin super soft and hydrated. I highly recommend this product for my oily skin fellows!

They also included an information card with a 10% off for first-time customers on their website.

Saint Cosmetics Eyeshadow in All Hell Broke Loose – 3.5g Value $23

Subscribers will receive one of these four colors – All Hell Broke Loose, Heavens Gates Gold, Hot N’Horny, or Hot to Trot.

This is the first time I’ve ever heard of this brand and I am impressed with how pigmented this eyeshadow is! All Hell Broke Lose is a warm brown, chocolate-y color and I think it’s the most buttery matte eyeshadow I’ve ever used, and I can see why the price is steep! It lasted a long time on my eyes.

Here are the swatches of the liquid lipstick, illuminator, and eyeshadow.

And this is the look I completed with everything I received from Benevolent Beauty Box this month. I love how my eyeshadow went really well with my lip color!

Verdict: This is my first Benevolent Beauty Box and I am very impressed with the curation and value, which adds up to $114 this month. I love almost everything in this box, and I’ve discovered my new favorite moisturizer as well. Being able to choose my color preference is definitely a big plus!

Jira discovered the world of subscription boxes when she first moved to New York in 2017 (subscription box is not a thing in her home country!). Thanks to MSA, she’s now subscribed to almost 10 beauty and lifestyle boxes, with FabFitFun, BeautyFIX, and Clean Beauty Box as her favorites. Ps. Her boyfriend thinks that she’s only subscribed to Ipsy, so please keep this a secret between us 😉

  1. Very flattering look for you, Jira!

    Kudos to BBB for A+ customer service.

  2. The box is great, but MannaKadar has to GO AWAY!!!

  3. I have to chime in here too. Moody Sisters products are wonderful! I received one of their masks in a sub box a while back and it made me a believer. They have great deodorant, with or without baking soda I believe, and the pricing is excellent! I like this box but I had sooo much stuff!

    • I will definitely get more of their product! Totally in love with this moisturizer and I’m glad you like them too!

  4. I have box envy!

    Also wanted to add: Moody Sisters is great. I discovered them in a different sub and have purchased items from them. They have great products and great customer service.

    I think I need this sub in my life…

  5. I was very interested in getting this box too, but their website says that the cutoff date is the 22nd of the month and any orders placed after that date will receive the next months box. It couldn’t hurt to email them to ask though.

    • Thanks Kris, will do.

    • Hi Kris! It was brought to our attention that there was interest in July’s box so I’m popping in to let you know we do have more July boxes left and can definitely accommodate. Please send us an email to info at benevolentbeautybox dot com if you would like more information!

    • Thanks again Kris. I took your advice and emailed Benevolent Beauty Box. Got a response almost immediately (on a Sunday) and then a follow-up response to my questions. And, I let them know others at MSA were still interested in the box. As you can see from BBB’s comment they got on that right away as well. This is customer service and then some.

      • Thanks Kris and Rachelle! I was following these comments and saw BBB’s response and am now getting the July box.

        Thanks Jira for the great review. It pushed me over the edge to subscribe.

        Super excited!!!!

        And thanks to BBB for being so responsive! Customer service goes a long way. I appreciate the quick response here and to my e-mail.

        • Yes, BBB got back with my email inquiry, too…! quickly…wow…Love good customer service…!

        • Glad you liked the review, Loba, I do really like this box too!

      • I’ve been a subscriber for about 6 months (absolutely one of my favorite sub boxes…and I have more than I care to admit) but just wanted to chime in and say I totally agree about the customer service! Stellar!!

        • I’ll 2nd that! They went way above & beyond my expectations when I became a new subscriber. I had bought two of my first box (once on a monthly plan, then a 2nd time on a prepaid when a great deal came out days later after my monthly plan was purchased), and when BBB noticed it on their end they reached out to me to make sure that’s what I truly wanted. They could have easily taken my money for the duplicate box (which I was intending to just make do with), but they decided to do what’s right by the customer by ensuring the customer is getting what they really wanted. Within that same email, they offered to start my prepaid one month later so I wouldn’t receive duplicate boxes. How impressive!

  6. Today is the 23rd. Do you know, if I subscribe today will I get this box? Thank you.

  7. Is it too late to order this box?

    • Hi Noelle! It was brought to our attention that there was interest in July’s box so I’m popping in to let you know we do have more July boxes left and can definitely accommodate. Please send us an email to info at benevolentbeautybox dot com if you would like more information!

  8. Jira,

    Thanks for the review. You look very lovely. I love that your make up has a very natural look.

    • Thank you for your feedback ^_^ I do go with natural look for my makeup.
