Check out what's inside the latest Essence Beauty Box.
I received the latest Essence Beauty box to review and honestly it's a little underwhelming. The box retails for $15 a month ($12.50 if you sign up for a 6 or 12 month plan). So let's break it down and see if it's really worth it.


1. Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Acne Treatment
Size: .16 FL Oz. 
Value: $5 

2. Miss Jessie's Coily Custard 
Size: 1 FL Oz.
Value: $1.68

3. Dark & Lovely Soak it Up Oil Cocktail
Size: 4.1 Fl Oz. (Full Size)
Value: $9

4. IMAN Luxury Lip Shimmer in the shade Socialite
Size: Sample
Value: $2-3

5. KISS Looks So Natural Lashes
Size: One Pair
Value: $3.99

6. Broadway Eyelash Adhesive
Size: Full
Value: $4

Bonus Item: Colgate Optic White Toothpaste

So, the box contains 3 full sized items (one of which is a pair of falsies) and 4 sample sized products (one of which is a travel sized toothpaste). The Beauty Box claims that that box contains over $35 in products. By my calculation, this box is worth about $26.67. The price is boosted with the help of the full size oil and the lashes. With so many subscription boxes out there, some of which are less than $15, I would definitely skip this one and use my $15 to treat myself to a couple of quality full sized items at Walmart. 

My rating 5/10
