I’m completely obsessed with my newest subscription, Beauty DNA! Last month I received an awesome 3Lab face cream that has become my holy grail go-to moisturizer. It’s seriously my favorite skincare discovery in years, I’m not even exaggerating.
Beauty DNA is a monthly subscription service that sends you one full sized beauty item based on your profile. When you first sign up, you fill out a pretty detailed profile on your preferences, and the experts at Beauty DNA will match you with a product that they think works best for you. For $25/month, you’ll receive an item from one of three categories: skincare, hair products, and body. Usually they alternate what category you receive between months, so you won’t end up getting a bunch of hair products consecutively.
Since I’ve had such a great experience, I’ve actually started gifting these subscriptions to my friends. I hope they have just as much luck as I have with their matches!
Each month you receive a personalized card explaining why the product was chosen for you. It incorporates elements from the questionnaire you fill out when you first subscribe. I’m consistently impressed by how specific they are and how many factors they consider.
Epionce Intense Defense Serum Anti-Aging and Repair | $136.00
Wow, another amazing high value item! I really didn’t think they would be sending me another expensive product so soon after my $140 cream from last month, but they totally did! I’ve never heard of this brand before and they seem to be a relatively new company, but I see lots of great reviews for their products on Dermstore so I have high hopes.
I’ve only used it for 2 days now and so far I really like how gentle and non-greasy the formula feels. The serum goes on really smooth and silky and absorbs quickly, with barely any fragrance. One thing that I really love about BeautyDNA is that all the items are full sized, which gives you a good idea of whether or not will work for you. I hate it when I get a tiny single application sample of skincare, because it really doesn’t tell me anything.
Glytone Step-Up Cleanse Mild Gel Wash | $4.60
I think this is a sample size product, since the full size seems to be a really large bottle. Since this is an extra, I don’t mind that it’s small. It has AMAZING reviews on Amazon, full of people raving that this is the best face cleanser ever, so I really couldn’t wait to try it!
Since I’ve also only tried this product 4 times (twice a day for two days), I can’t attest to how effective it will be long term. But so far I’ve been very happy with this cleanser. It cleans well but doesn’t feel harsh at all, and doesn’t have any irritating fragrance or tingly/burning sensation on my face. Afterwards my skin feels really smooth and fresh, like I exfoliated except without the harsh abrasion of actual exfoliation. I’m going to finish this sample and if it works out, I’m going to buy the full size for sure!
My box has a value of $140.60, which is really incredible for a $25 box. But even more valuable is that I’m discovering new products that really work for me that I know I never would have found otherwise. Like I said earlier, that 3Lab cream from last month is my new holy grail moisturizer! I’m honestly completely blown away by BeautyDNA and wish I had subscribed sooner. This one is a keeper, for sure!
