Blush Mystery Beauty Box for Beauty Box Virgins

The Blush Mystery Beauty Box is making fancy pants KC into a fine fine Lady and improving her french. Not to mention her growing horde of luxious face creams and beauty products was making me envious so I parted with $19.95 ($5 discount on the first box) and subscribed to my first Blush Box.  I'm hoping to become a woman soon.

I received all the same items as KC except I received the KLORANE Mask with Desert Date instead of the Leave-In Cream which KC received.

The number cruncher in me likes to see what the retail value of all the products are so I've listed them below.  I googled every product and most of them are for sale at various sites including

Osmosis Skincare Harmonized H20 for Digestive Health Full Size 3.38 oz $30
The label says it Normalizes Bowel Function - I'm scared to ingest this.  The ingredients on the label read: Distilled Water, Multiple Vibrational Frequency Blends.  So there is nothing in this product but water??  It tastes like water.  Smart marketing.  Sell 3.38 oz of water for $30.
Update! Thumbs down for marketing distilled water for $30. 

Klorane Mask with Desert Date Full Size 5 oz. $24 retail at
I'm super excited to try this on my hair since it's supposed to revitalize dry hair.  The packaging only lists European countries so it must be c'est magnifique.  It smells like a bakery.
Update! This product made my hair very silky and shiny.

Goldfaden MD Wake Up Call Sample .16oz $7.50
A full size 1.7 oz retails for $80 on so this stuff must be good.  It says it hydrates, restores and revives your skin while you sleep.
Update! Decent moisturizer.  It didn't do miracles liked it claimed but I'll use the entire sample.

Gytone Hydrating Eye Cream Full Size 15ml $30
You can never have too much eye cream.
 Update! Will use this product.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper - Tokyo Tiny sample size $5
This color is something my Aunt would wear.  The only think I like about it is the name of the shade "Tokyo". I don't feel very Japanese wearing it.
Update! This isn't really my color plus it tasted like old lady lipstick.

Le Edge Exfoliator - $8.70 on
As Seen on TV Product - Looks very cheesy
Update! Just like most as Seen on TV Products this didn't do anything.

Below are the bonuses I received

Dermstore Lip Quench $12
Fancy Chapstick - Do people pay full price for this stuff?

Sample of Ren Hydra-Calm Day Cream and Youth Complex Anti-Aging Cream.  One time use samples.

Total retail value $117.20!  Great steal for $19.95 and this box has brought so much happiness to my life. Video to be posted in a few days. Good value for this box since I love the hair mask and I will use the Eye Cream and Wake up Call.


  1. I also got that Lip Quench stuff free when I ordered something from Dermstore once (which is how I got on their email list which is how I found out about the Blush box) and I like it. I don't know if anyone ever pays money for it or not but it's nice stuff.

  2. I saw you can purchase the Lip Quench for $12 on the dermstore website. That is pricey lip balm. I wonder if anyone buys anything full price.
