Switch 2 Pure March 2019 Review

This is the first time I’ve seen a branded pouch.

Not everything fits into it, but these three items were inside.

PLANT Get Happy Bodywash, 2.3 oz. travel-size – Retail Value $7.00

PLANT has a pretty great line of products. I’ve tried their “Calm Down” body wash in the past and liked it so much that I bought it in full-size. This “Get Happy” version is scented with geranium and Peppermint which is uplifting like the name would suggest. I asked my roommate if he wanted to give it a whirl and he was a fan. The thing he said that stood out most is that the nozzle allowed him to not overuse the body wash and only dispensed the smaller amount needed. He appreciated that so he wouldn’t run out quickly and be prompted to buy/use more than needed. This little bottle is, of course, perfect for travel!

Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish in Vintage on Vine, 0.50 full-size – Retail Value $18.00

Ah yes- Lauren B, my girl. Although I no longer wear regular polish, I always appreciate a good lavender and a polish that is 5-free and has serious pigment coverage. I thought this was the same color I received in another box in January, but it’s actually slightly different. I’ll be passing this one on to someone who’ll use it but this is a solid formula.

Priti NYC Soy and Geranium Cuticle Oil, 0.43 oz. full-size – Retail Value $15.00

I’ve said this before but my cuticles turn into a mess in the winter so this nourishing brush-on cuticle oil is the perfect remedy for that. The oil has a pleasant floral geranium scent which is nice and I have to say I prefer the brush to some other roll-on cuticle oils that are not as easy to control around my acrylics. There’s an immediate difference as soon as I put this on and I can feel my cuticles sigh in relief.

Au Naturale High Lustre Lip Gloss in Slip, sample size – Buy full size for $19.00

I don’t love lip gloss but this is a pretty color that gives a nice glimmer to your lips. It feels really moisturizing and since I think it’s a color my Mom would just love, I’ll be passing it on to her. This may just be a little sample as a bonus this month as opposed to being counted as an item, though it’s hard to say since Switch 2 Pure doesn’t come with info sheets or have any indicators on their website. Au Naturale does a good job of making high-quality makeup that’s natural and cruelty-free. It also has a fun fruity scent!

Honest Hazel Under Eye Gels – Retail Value $5.00

I’m familiar with these since they came in another beauty box long ago. I can’t say I’ve used them since because even though they say they’re instant, it’s tough for me to see immediate results in eye masks. Whether or not these show physical results after one use, they feel good when they’re on. What I’ve also learned since the last time I used these is that I don’t need to shove them so close under my eyes to use and fit a whole lot better just under the sleepy bags. The serum will be carried up to where it’s needed by my pores. For now, I’ll just enjoy the cool soothing time while these are resting on my tired puffy eyes.

Wylde One Immune Shrooms, Yoga In A Cup, and Brain Buzz Herbal Supplements, 3 ct – Total Estimated Retail Value $8.14 (Buy 14 ct packs of each for $38.00)

My interests were immediately piqued with these powdered supplements in brightly colored packages. I decided to try the yellow Brain Buzz kind at work to try and focus and get through an afternoon slump. The directions state that you can add this to coffee, tea, a smoothie, or simply some hot water. I opted for the latter to see what it tasted like on its own and MY GOD it was awful. I see why they suggest adding it to something more pleasing. I took one sip and it was so bitter and yucky that I couldn’t make it through another. I think my main issue here is the included stevia sweetener which you may know from past reviews is my food nemesis. I think I’d be able to pick out the stevia no matter what I put these into so they’re gonna get a hard pass from me.

La Mend The Good Patch B12 Awake, 4 ct – Retail Value $12.00

Another intriguing item! This resealable pouch has four transdermal patches containing B12, caffeine, and green tea extract that you can stick onto your skin to give a little pep to your step when you need it. However, I’ve tried them twice so far and haven’t been able to feel a difference in the afternoon when I’m starting to droop a bit. My friend even made a comment to me while out and yawning that it clearly wasn’t working. I like the idea of this but am not convinced it is doing enough for me. The directions on the package and the website are sort of vague and have conflicting amounts of time that it can be left on. One says 12 hours and another says 24 hours so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Skiin Studio Soothing & Calming Bio Cellulose Signature Sheet Mask – Retail Value $8.00

This mask is another brand that I’ve tried before but in a different variant. It came in Switch 2 Pure back in November and as I did back then, I love this one! I immediately loved the smell of this one but couldn’t place it. I made my roommate give it a sniff and he gestured towards our spices in the kitchen saying it was definitely something from there. I think I narrowed it down to either garlic or black pepper (both ingredients) which are a delightful surprise in a face mask. Like their other mask, this one is a jelly mask which feels amazing and soothing on and left very little serum behind which I prefer. It made my skin feel ultra dewy and fresh. Again, this is definitely a mask I’d order in the future. It’s pricy but worth it in my opinion, especially because it’s made with natural ingredients.

Verdict: This month’s Switch 2 Pure had a lot of misses for me but I’m seasoned enough to not expect bangers every time. The cuticle oil, body wash, and face mask were my faves but the rest was kind of ho-hum for me. Not including the sample size lip gloss that I’m chalking up to a bonus, this $57.00 box has an estimated value of $73.14 which isn’t the best deal I’ve ever seen but still worthwhile if you like all of the items included.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, April would be your first delivery if you sign up before the 13th.

From S2P:

We close subscription on the 13th of each month and ship out on the 14th. You can expect the arrival of your package around 4 business days (most often sooner).

  1. B12 is absorbed in the ileum (part of the small intestine), not the skin. That’s like thinking that sprinkling nutritional yeast on my skin will resort in B12 absorption. This pseudoscience is a huge turn off.

    • Innnnnteresting! Thanks for weighing in, Ellie!

      • My pleasure. Always good to pretend the my biology degree is useful 😉

        Also, mistyped “result” as “resort”. I think I need a vacation.

  2. Wow that’s a pricey box! I’d rather spend $57 on au naturale stuff since I know the brand agrees with my super picky skin. Or just buy a travel size of that body wash which actually looks like it has no synthetic ingredients (as opposed to most “natural” body washes and shampoos which contain foaming agents and artificial fragrance, both of which give me hives!)
    Thanks for the review! As always it was honest and fun, and funny. (Oh, I hate stevia too! And I don’t eat sugar. So even a palate unused to sweet tastes finds stevia gross and bitter and weird)

  3. I hope to see more full size products. That’s a pretty pricey box for that

  4. Seems a little underwhelming for $57. There are natural/vegan subs out there that will give, say, four full-size products for less than $57.

    • Agree

  5. Stevia is the worst!! It tastes bad and is bad for you!! Why is it in everything!!! I wish they’d leave it out and let me sweeten myself.
