For C$12/month, each box contains 4 deluxe samples with free shipping. Every month, there is the option to enter the draw for Privé Boxes, which picks all products from one brand. I went with the regular box this month and I also passed on the offer to receive an additional product with a C$10 upgrade.
There are two packaging options and I went with the minimal one (a mesh bag instead of a cylindrical tube). Let's take a look at what I received this month.
My first box totals a value of C$39.18:
- Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner - 0.003oz (full size 0.04oz for C$29) - value: C$2.18
- Bioderma Sensibio H2O - 100mL (travel size 100mL for C$7) - value: C$7
- China Glaze Nail Lacquer (X-Ta-Sea) - 14mL (full size 14mL for ~C$8) - value: C$8
- Lancome Genifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activating Concentrate - 5mL (full size 20mL for C$88) - value: C$22
I have tried the Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner [Review Here] and I did not like it, so I will be passing on this sample.
The Bioderma Sensibio H2O is one of my favorite micelle solutions. While this is a product that I really enjoy using, I already have two 500mL bottles and one 250mL bottle to go through.
The Lancome Genifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activating Concentrate is the item with the most value in this box. Unfortunately, I will not be using this since I am committed to stay away from anti-aging focused products until I am closer to my thirties.
Overall, the value of the entire box is worth the C$12 subscription price. However, given that I don't like the Benefit eyeliner, that I don't really wear bright purple nail polishes often, and that I do not intend on trying the Lancome eye concentrate myself, the true value of this box to me is on par with the price. I really enjoy the surprise of products and I am continuing my subscription.
