Unboxing....Beauty Joy Box April 2015

I'm a bit disappointed this month with my Beauty Joy Box. Not with the products that are inside the box, but with the packaging. Last month, Beauty Joy finally shipped their beauty box nestled inside of shredded crinkle paper & packed in a sturdy packing box. This month, the beauty box came inside of a not-very-padded envelope. When I opened the beauty box, there was no pretty crinkle paper & they didn't use their cute fleur-de-lis tissue paper inside the box. Just plain white tissue this month. I guess they are still experimenting with packaging, but when my beauty box arrives I like the presentation to be just as special as the contents.

This is what it looked like when I pulled it out of the envelope. Just the Beauty Joy Box & the information card. And when I took the top off of the box, no cute tissue paper. Just plain white. Kind of a letdown.

But the products inside of the box were not a letdown at all! A full-size lip product & how cute is that bracelet?!?! This subscription box comes with 1 hand-curated jewelry item, 1 full-size beauty item & 2 - 3 deluxe samples. Here is what came in the box this month:

Gemstone Bracelet - Each gemstone chip is unique & strung together to form a beautiful bracelet just for you. Made with stones of Garnet, Sodalite, Jade, Rose Quartz, Peridot, Obsidian & more. $8

Too Faced Sweet Sun Shine Lip Gloss in Watermelon Ice (full-size) $16

Tocca Body Lotion Cleopatra Crema da Corpo (2 fluid ounce) $4.50

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo 
& Keratin Cream Rinse 
(1 fluid ounce each) $3.25 each

The value of the items in this box is $35. The cost of this subscription is $15 per month & can be cancelled at any time before you are billed for the following month. Billing is done on the 1st of the month. Shipping is free for the U.S. & $5 for Canada.

So. I like this box! All of the beauty products are new to me. I've used Paul Mitchell hair products before, but not these. And the bracelet is especially cute. My dad was a Geologist so he used to make bracelets & necklaces for me. This really brings back memories & I can't wait to wear it! 

And....I can't wait to see what comes next month!
