I Love Beauty Army!! Review of January Through June Boxes

I have been meaning to do this review since I started this blog.  Thanks to Beauty Army, I have been exposed to many new product lines and I have plenty to review!

Beauty Army is a monthly subscription sample service.  It is $12 per month and they send 6 deluxe sized samples.  It is similar to BirchBox and the like, but you get to take a Beauty Profile quiz when you sign up and you can re-take the quiz as often as you like.  The quiz asks questions like your favorite makeup style for going out, your type of hair, what nail polish looks you prefer, and ends with a grid of choices, ranging from Anti-Aging, Brightening, Hair, Nails, All Natural, Anti-Redness, etc, and you can select a few options to help personalize your results.

The results are generated and 9 samples are shown.  You select 6 or you can let them choose the 6 for you. Being the control freak that I am, I have always selected each sample myself!!!!!!

June 2012: Mystery Sample..oooooh!
I joined in January when the company started and I have yet to skip a month.  You can do that easily, if you wish, but I have always found 6 things I've wanted to try.  In April, I received a full size product, a Joico K-Pak treatment that was over 5 ounces!  I have also received a full size shadow, which I'll review separately later - it's fab!

In January, each item was wrapped individually.  For the past few months, they've been encased within the tissue.  Not a huge difference, but this box is from January or February.  I love the boxes as well.  They are sturdy enough to re-use, as is the tissue.  Yay for up-cycling!
My January Box!
Cellceuticals Neocell Treatment,
Control Corrective Moisturizer,
Shea Terra Organics Black Soap Cleanser (amaaaaaazing),
Strivectin Brightening Serum (also super amazing. I'd buy it except a full size is $89 for an ounce),
LaRocca pumpkin body scrub,
Bling Tone eyeshadow (full size!)
My April box contained:
 MAD Skincare Redness Rescue,
Indie Lee lotion (I love ANYTHING Indie Lee that I've been sent so far),
BooBoo Cover Up,
Karuna Brightening Treatment Mask,
Kellet Hydrant Gel,
Pur-lisse Brightening Serum (love this, too)
June 2012
June contents:
Eyecandy Coolers (re-usable),
Fiafini Divine Hydration Moisturizer,
Atopalm Moisturizing cream (for the body)
June continued:
Korres Guava Gel (was supposed to be lotion...)
Youngblood Mineral Primer (amaaazing. I plan to purchase the full-size of this.  I am a primer JUNKY.  If you have a favorite primer that I need to try, please leave suggestions on my Facebook wall or here!!)
June's "Mystery Sample" turned out to be the best product I've tried from Beauty Army!  Details below!
I wish this had smell-o-vision.  This is Heaven in a jar!!
In June, for the first time, there was a mystery sample option.  That is what the question mark above is for, in the grid photos.  I was hesitant to order it (since I am a control freak, as I mentioned) but I decided to go for it.  Woooooo hooo! Thank goodness I did!  I was sent a sample of Indie Lee's coconut citrus body scrub!  I received this in my February kit and coveted every last drop.  It smells like heaven and exfoliates gently yet briskly, leaving a super soft finish.  I think it smells like buttered popcorn, lol, but it's better than that.  I was SO excited to receive this as my mystery sample and will hoard this one just like I did with the last one.  I am contemplating a full size because it's fairly expensive, but I waaant it!! My birthday is in a month, maybe I shall treat myself ;)  If you're a scrub fan, this is worth the splurge, it really is.

Anyway, I hope you can tell from this picture heavy post that I am a huge fan.  I also love the company's customer service.  As a CS Rep (second job) myself, I appreciate the attentiveness and personalization of the service itself and the staff's attitudes.

If you're interested in Beauty Army, I strongly suggest checking it out for at least a month, you will not regret it!
