Beauty Army is a monthly subscription service, where you chose 6 out of 9 products, that are offered to you based on a beauty profile quiz. If you don't like your choices, you can retake the quiz (as often as you like) or refresh the page to change your selections. You may also opt to have a beauty expert select for you; or even opt out for the month if you don't see anything you like (or can't afford it that month. Beauty Army charges $12 a month (US Subscriptions), including shipping. If you would like to sign up for Beauty Army, I would LOVE for you to click my referral link HERE; for every 3 people who use my link, I will receive a free box, and this Only Average girl could really use some freebies- and you will receive my eternal gratitude!
Another awesome feature of Beauty Army, is that all of the items that they offer, are for sale on their website in full size form- and who doesn't love one stop shopping??!! If you like something you see here, head on over to BA and check it out!
|Pretty card this month- love it!|
|First peek into my box!|
|Bath and Body Works Shower Gel in Twilight Woods; 3 oz; $5 retail value. Available through Beauty Army; or direct from the vendor HERE. Full size (10 oz) is $11.|
|Dermisa Skin Fade Cream; 0.90 oz; $5.55 retail value (based on lowest price). Available through Beauty Army; or direct from the vendor HERE. Full size (1.78 oz) is $14 (BA) or $10.99 (vendor).|
|The cream is a nice thickness, and absorbs into my skin well.|
One thing that makes it hard for me to post a speedy review is, that I need to use this product 4-6 weeks to expect to see results. I think that this product will have a neutral score, until I can thoroughly rest it for 4-6 weeks. The cream is in a metallic tube, and is a HUGE sample. The package has a barcode on it, so it must be a full size product, only smaller; I just can't seem to find it for sale anywhere in this size.
GRADE:3/5 (for now!)
|Whip Hand Cosmetics Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in Green Beret; .02 oz; $2.80 retail value. Available through Beauty Army. Full size (0.10 oz) is $14.|
|Very shimmery and sparkly, a pretty green. Perfect for spring!|
|Enspiri Ultra Collagen 5-minute facial; 0.241 oz; $3.81 retail value. Available through Beauty Army. Full size (pure collagen-2.29 oz, vital hydrator-4 fl oz, plus mixing tools) is $99.50 (!).|
GRADE: 3/5 (for now!)
|Mark Hook Ups Lip Gloss in Honey; .12 oz (full size); $6.50. Available through Beauty Army or the vendor HERE.|
|This is a very shiny, pigmented gloss. Full coverage, not sheer at all.|
I chose this because I haven't tried the shade Honey yet, and I love to see full size products in my box. I never really worry about the what ifs: what if I don't like the shade, what if my skin reacts, etc- I have two daughters who LOVE makeup and would be happy to inherit anything that I want to pass down to them. Fortunately, the Mark gloss was a hit for me, and a great color for my skin tone (see why I love beauty profiles?!). This shade is awesome, and almost exactly the natural shade of my lips. Love it!!
GRADE: 5/5 (awesome product!)
|Skynn Cosmetics Color Touch Cheek & Lip Glow, in the shade Teen Tone; 0.17 oz (full size); $17. Available through Beauty Army, or the vendor HERE.|
|Very pretty pink shade- glides on very nicely!|
GRADE: 5/5 (love it!)

Do you subscribe to Beauty Army? What did you choose this month? Like what I got? Hate it? Leave me a comment, and let me know- I would LOVE to hear from you!
Also- I apologize for the less than stellar pictures on this post. It was a very rainy day, and I had to rely on indoor lighting. I didn't want to edit the photos because I want them to be as true to life as I can get them. Sorry! Hopefully the weather will clear up the next time I am taking shots for a review.
