So, I’ve recently jumped on the subscription box bandwagon. There’s just something so thrilling about receiving a package every month filled with surprise products, am i right? It’s like Christmas 12 times a year! Only you hope that what’s actually inside the box is worth the money you’re shelling out..
After perusing some other blogs, I decided to try out the BeautyDNA service. It costs $25 per month and you get 1 full size beauty product in one of the following categories – skin, hair, and body. You fill out a fairly extensive profile detailing the types of products you like within each category, what your needs are, what kind scents you like, whether you have any allergies or sensitivities and even what active ingredients you’re most (or least) interested in. Based on this, you get sent a product tailored for you.
I was really excited to try this out. I do a lot of research on my own, but it’s always nice to have something specifically selected just for you. Of course I was also a little apprehensive – would they get it right? I shouldn’t have worried – they hit it out of the park.
For my November box, I received a full-sized bottle of Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum (1oz, $80).
They also give you a card with a description of the product and they tell you why they chose this product for you.
This was a perfect choice. I’ll all about antioxidant serums and was looking for a new one to try (my standby has been Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster), since I wanted to go with something stronger. I actually had just purchased Paulas Choice Resist c15 Super Booster, but I”ll put that on hold to try out this product. I’ve never heard of the Drunk Elephant brand before, but I love that it has 15% Vitamin C as well as loads of other nourishing ingredients. For $25, I received an $80 product – pretty good deal! I can’t wait to see what they choose for me next month!
