My advice to get the best value for your money is to create a spreadsheet with the products and their value and sort it from high to low, this way you'll be able to choose the items that are worth more and not lose your time with items worth $1! I know this might take some time, but it's totally worth it.
The make up bag is great, it fits a lot of stuff and the quality is good, it doesn't look cheap and it's not made with shiny fabric. I love it and have been using it to carry my make up around.
The size of the products is great!
NeoStrata - Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy: $50 (Full size).
Jonathan Product - Finish Control High Shine Flexible Hairspray: $24.95 (Full size).
Jane Iredale - Dark Suede PurePressed Eye Shadow: $19 (Full size).
Global Goddess Beauty - Kumaon i Divine Eye Color: $5 (Full size).
The total value of my box was $199.62, almost 4 times what I paid for it. I think the value is totally worth the money and really loved the products I got. I don't think I will be dropping this subscription and can't wait for my next box.
One thing I don't like though, is that a lot of the skincare products they have available are anti aging products, neither of which I need or like. Overall, I love this service and getting $25 off at Dermstore after completing the survey is a great plus, even if you have to spend at least $50, but come on, every time I buy something make up related I know I will spend more than $50! So it's not hard to reach that $50 requirement.
