One of the reasons I like the Beauty Army subscription boxes so much is that you have some control over the box. You fill out a profile and can specify from what categories you’d like things. You can also change that profile any time you want. They notify you when it’s your day to select. I don’t think everyone has the same day, I know mine starts on the 20th of the month. They’ll show you about 9 items and you can pick up to 6 of them. If you don’t care for these items you can do one of two things – opt out for the month or play around with your profile and see what else pops up for your selection.
Beauty Army boxes are $10 including shipping and they arrive in a great pink cigar box. I’ve opted out of the box for the last several months but when the July selection came through there was enough in the box to justify my $10 and I went for it. See past months here.
In my pink box there are 2 full size items, 2 packets and 2 minis. I said yes to the box because of the two full size items.
1) Addiction NV gel eyeliner in Big Daddy which is a chocolate shade. I love gel eyeliners and I go through brown ones quickly. Now the quirk in this is that I just looked it up to find the price and they are gone – out of business – goodbye to Addiction NV. I’ve reviewed 3 shades here but I neglected to put in the price which I believe was around $14. I expect that we’ll see Addiction NV products showing up in some subscriptions. Discontinued or not, I’m happy to have another brown liner because I toss them if they dry out. I’m still using my green one (Scene) and it’s over a year and a half old and going strong. This looks like it’s pulling away a little so I’ll use it quickly.
2) Remington AnyWear Hair ties for hair – these are available at Walmart and cost $2.50 each. I like these for pulling my hair off my neck and go through them quickly. I always meant to pick up the Remington ones but never saw them when I was wandering around Wally World. The colors are pretty summer shades of lilac, peach and cherry. They aren’t as tight as some brands and seem a little bigger. This kind of hair tie eventually loses its mojo so having a few extra around is always a pleasure.
3) Bikini Soft Smooth Shave Oil – this is a deluxe sample size and seems really nice. I’ve never used an oil for shaving but oils are becoming bigger in my world so this will be a treat to try. Great size for travel too. Here’s the website (https://www.bikinisoft.com/) which talks to you. LOL.
4) Mini Kittour travel bottle – speaking of travel – this is an empty bottle that will fit 30ml/1 fl oz of product. This sells for $6 for a set of 2. I can always use things like this.
The rest of my choices were packets and I chose two. I chose Lift Lab Daily Cream since I’m using Lift Lab’s eye cream now with success. I also chose Pida Exfoliating Gel for no specific reason other than that it seemed the most interesting of my choices. Beauty Army makes it sound pretty great so it was hopefully a good one.
So there you have my latest Beauty Army box. If you are interested in this subscription I’d love it if you used my Referral Link so I could eventually get a free box. I promise to share. What do you think of this month’s choices? Have you considered Beauty Army? — Marcia
