Summer Beautycon Box

Hello! Today I'm going to talk you through the summer Beautycon box. Once I saw that mine had shipped out I immediately looked up what was in it because I'm super impatient and couldn't wait and be surprised. I was pretty excited with what I saw but from the reaction I saw online I was one of few. A lot of people were saying this was one of the worst boxes ever and that they were canceling because of it. Wow, harsh. I actually like this one way better than the spring box. I kept seeing that everyone thought this box seems "light," like it's missing something, and I will say that the items are definitely smaller but bigger isn't always better. At first blush there was really only one item I was not looking forward to trying but I freaking ended up kinda liking it. Go figure. I don't want to spoil my thoughts any further so let's get to the deets!

So there we have it! If you were curious, I would put the total value of this at about $138. As with the last box the value is really great for what you pay. While I do really like the items from this box, as I said more so than the spring box, it does sort of feel like something is missing. I think that's perhaps due to the fact that everything in this box is quite small compared to the last one. Anyhow, I'm still quite happy with this box and am shocked to say that I think I'll be trying out all of the products myself. I pretty much always end up giving away at least one product from every beauty box I receive but these are all products that I'm keen to try for once. Regardless of whether or not you get the Beautycon box I would love to hear your thoughts on this one, love it or hate it? There's no wow factor but overall I dig it. Let me know what you think in the comments and as always thank you so much for visiting and have a lovely day!

 

UPDATE on Aug. 18, 2017: Very sad to report that the Beautycon Box has been cancelled. In an email that was sent out to subscribers it says, "we are shifting away from the box program into an exciting new endeavor and this Summer Box will be our last season of the Beautycon Box." Super bummed because this was quickly becoming my favorite subscription box and I only got two. In the words of Nelly Furtado, "why do all good things come to an end?"
