Scentbird Skincare April Review
Scentbird might already be your go-to for scents each month but when we discovered they also offer skincare as a monthly option? You know I had to sign up!! The skincare options work similarly to the fragrances. Within the shop, simply select the skincare tab and start adding items to your queue.
Here is an example of some of the brands and products. There are limited numbers of each, though they seem to be restocked quite often. In the upper right-hand corner of each image, you can see your upgrade cost which is added to your normal membership price. These upgrades range from $5-15, though some of the less expensive items have no additional charge.
Here is what my queue currently looks like. In my first month of November, I saved a ton of money. I decided to up my membership to the 2 products per month plan ($25.00/month) to see how far I could stretch my membership dollars.
What did I pick this month? Let's dive in!
I chose two products this month, both from green beauty darling, Loli.
LOLI Plum Elixer Oil, 0.81 fl oz - Retail Value $68.00
FYI: This item has a $10 premium upcharge.
Our #1 best selling, glow-inducing plum serum instantly hydrates parched, dry skin, chapped lips and damaged hair. Sustainably up-cycled from the kernel of the French Ente plum, this vegan, MADE SAFE® certified beauty oil is a completely waterless blend of four organic, food grade seed oils. Use this day and night for mega rejuvenation of even the most sensitive skin types.
This is a formula I have heard rave reviews about, and I love how conscious the LOLI brand is, so it was an easy choice, even with the $10 upcharge! I knew this would be a winner just from the ingredients: plum seed oil, pomegranate oil, tea seed oil, and sea buckthorn. That is a lot of healthy vitamins and fatty acids that my skin just LOVES. Also, this oil is so multipurpose that it might be able to take over most of your routine if you are a minimalist. You can use it on your hair, face, nails, lips, and skin. It is instantly hydrating and should improve skin texture and overall appearance over time. It has a yummy fruity + nutty scent too. I reserve this oil for nighttime because it is a little heavy for day IMO and if you are super fair like me, the orange from the sea buckthorn oil can be just BARELY noticeable on skin. I am pretty obsessed with this stuff and think it absolutely lived up to the hype.
LOLI Tea Seed Elixer Oil, 0.81 fl oz - Retail Value $42.00
When all you want is luminosity (sans oiliness) for your skin, Tea Seed Elixir delivers. This smart cocktail of sweet orange, pink grapefruit and nourishing oils from tea seed, flaxseed and apricot balances oil production, shrinks blemishes and brightens skin tone.
FYI: My second item this month arrived looking a little less full than the first. LOLI tends to leave a little space in their bottles but this seemed like more empty air than usual. I didn't notice any leakage in the box, and the product itself seemed totally fine, but I decided to reach out to Scentbird regardless. I will update this review if/when I hear back from them!
UPDATE: 6/1: Scentbird offered to replace this item, though it was currently sold out. I was offered a choice of items on the site. I chose a perfume as a replacement.
This is a really wonderful daytime oil option if you want the hydration boost but with less oiliness. It smells bright and citrusy, with a little bit of a floral bent. The citrus inside is great if you are experiencing a spot or two and my skin just feels like heaven wearing this. I also found it was light enough to play well under my (barely there) makeup, which is another bonus. This was another win and an oil I can absolutely see adding to my permanent routine.
UPDATE 6/8: Here is my replacement perfume:
Etat Libra d'Orange 'True Lust' Perfume
This is a perfume that has become difficult to find stateside (outside of discount sites which I don't always trust), so I snapped it up as I have always wanted to try it and I have an inking it might be discontinued. It has notes of powder, jasmine, leather, coconut, and rum, YUM! It takes a few moments for the powder scent to give way to the rest, but I love this scent a lot, and I am glad Scentbird offered me a choice of replacement. I was not asked to send the Lolli oil back.
Verdict: This month with my $25 membership plus $10 in upcharges, my total for March came to $35. I received $110 worth of products which is pretty outstanding. I am so happy that I chose to try out LOLI and I am going to keep my eye on this brand for sure. Fingers crossed it is offered more often through Scentbird!
I am also pleased with the quick replacement fragrance I selected.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, all you have to do is choose these items for your queue. As long as there is still stock at the time of your monthly processing, they're yours!
Value Breakdown: This subscription is $25/monthly for two items and my product of choices had a $10 total upgrade fee attached, bringing my total cost to $35. For $110.00 dollars worth product, this means I saved about 68%!
