Total Beauty Collection Mystery Box June 2013 Review

Hey Everybody!

I have 2 giveaways going right now so be sure to check them out! Click this link to go to my giveaway for 2 Runbandz of your choice

Click here to go to my giveaway for anything of your choice with a value of up to $60. Both have great prizes and they both have chances to earn more entries every day!



I received my Total Beauty Collection Mystery Box in the mail last week! This was my first package ever from Total Beauty Collection so I had no idea what to expect. When I heard that they had a mystery box going, I had to order one. According to the description of this box, it's supposed to include 13 or more items at a value of over $100. 


I paid: $20


Value: $11.28

I love it when they send out samples of the shampoo and conditioner. It always bothers me when they only send the shampoo and not the conditioner, or vice versa. These are generously sized samples. I have such long hair though so I'm guessing I'll get about 3 washes out of them. They are natural, organic and vegan. 


Value: $6.30

This is a pretty high quality face mask. This is a pretty small sample and it's worth quite a bit. I can't say that I've ever tried a black face mask before though. You are supposed to peel it off after 20 minutes. I think I'm going to try this out tomorrow. I am so curious as to how it looks on my face. Is the mask iteself black? I'll have to find out!


Value: $2

This product has a 5 star rating on Amazon.com, so I'm thinking that is a pretty good sign that I am going to like it a lot. This is an oil that you put in your hair to make it silkier and shinier. Plus, it's even infused with diamonds!


Value: $1.15

I have honestly never been out and about and thought that I really needed a Q-tip at that exact moment. I can always wait until I get home to use Q-tips. These will probably just stay in my cupboard at home and I'll use them there. 


Value: $7.12

I can't see myself wearing this at all. I'm not a glitter kind of girl so I probably will gift this to somebody. I like NYX products though,, I have some loose eye shadow of theirs that I love. I just can't see mysyself using this. 


Value: $5.33

Now this is something that I can definitely see myself using. It's like chapstick that still gives your lips some color. I love products like this because I only have to carry one product around with me when I use it. This will definitely be put in my purse ASAP.


Value: $5

I hear tons of good things about the Honest Company products but I have never tried them out before. I'm not quite sure what I am going to use the healing balm for though. I wonder if it would work on sunburns?


Value: $10

I can't tell what these little pots are. I tried looking for a place that told me what they were but I didn't see anything on the packages. They look like bronzers to me, I'll just have to go some research and find out. I do love loose powder makeup though. These will definitely get some use out of them.


Value: $0.70

I love body cream. It moisturizes my skin so much better than regular lotion. I'm excited to try out this scent too, it sounds amazing. 


Value: $7.28

I've tried EBOOST before and it wasn't bad at all. It's a good drink to take before you go for a run or start a long day. I usually take it when I need that little extra energy to get through the day. 


Value: $2.69

I love lip balm. I've never tried the naturals though so it'll be interesting to try. 

Total Value: $58.85

So I can't really complain that the value of the box was over the $20 that I paid, but I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn't the $100 value that they claimed it to be. I still liked a lot of the products in the box though! I can't wait to try out the shampoo and conditioner.

  1. I was disappointed that they counted that wine giftcard in the value of the box. But since I used a coupon code on the box, I can't really complain.

    I loved the Boscia mask. I wish it wasn't so expensive because I hate to spend that much on it. It really is black and it is thick like tar. I liked it a lot.

  2. You forgot the wine GC worth $50. I got the same. Bummer that the GC was in there, but that would make your total higher than $100.

    1. I did forget about that. I don't usually could the GC's in my total because who knows if I will actually use them.

    2. Yeah, if you already used a promo code for them you are not eligible to use this gift card or if you live in certain states that have restrictions.

      The mask is pretty good. It is really good for your pores. It is funny, I actually just bought this mask at Sephora.

      Anyhoos, love your blog :)

  3. Well I think this is a fantastic box but that advertising is so misleading :/ The NYX colour balm is probably my favourite but I'll be curious to see what you think of all the products :)
