Featured Review: The Beauty Box by Bombay & Cedar Review - January 2021

Review for The Beauty Box by Bombay & Cedar Review - January 2021
Taryn Lowman profile picture by Taryn Lowman on March 3, 2021

This month's The Beauty Box by Bombay & Cedar was a good mix of products! While I am really liking the makeup remover cloth, I do tend to see these a lot in boxes. I will say though that this cloth is one of the best that I have seen in a while, but the makeup this month was my favorite item. I can't use the bronzer palette right now, but I know that it is going to be so handy to use throughout the summer months for light coverage and glow. The eyeshadow palette makes me feel so chic with a unique blend of colors. I really like that I can mix the shimmer shades with the mattes to create a full look. I didn't love the Professor Herb products this month, but I think that just had more to do with my skin type not working well with the menthol. I calculated a retail value of around $108.54 for this box, a great value for $31.95 a month. I really love the quality that I have come to expect from this box; each month brings a mix of essential beauty items from brands that I get to learn more about and discover what might work for me – and what doesn't. This really is a quality box that allows me to get products that I know I will use while also introducing me to new products and brands! Read more...

I'd love to try this box since it seems so interesting and has such great items that are unlike any other box in my opinion. I'd love to get one before I subscribe to see if its really as good and worth what I'll be paying for it given the excitement factor in receiving it should confirm whether I'd subscribe or not but I feel I would ..... Just need a Try Out Box since its pretty expensive.

My favorite box for over a year. I keep more items from this box for personal use than any other, and what I don't need/want goes quickly on the swap site. People complain that it ships late, but I prefer to have my boxes spread over the month. It comes a month after the last one, so what's the difference? One of very few boxes that don't seem to jack up the retail value on unknown brands, although you can sometimes find things on sale. I prefer that it's a smaller company and my customer service experience has been good.

I signed up for a 3 mo sub + a free mystery box. My mystery box came with this awesome metal roller that you put in the refrigerator and use to ease muscle pain or migraines, etc. However, the roller came in a box that was torn, dirty and smashed. The roller wasn’t wrapped in anything. It literally looked like it had been on the warehouse floor and kicked around for 6 months. I threw it away because there was no way I was going to use it. I wrote an extremely polite letter to let them know my experience and that the shipping box arrived in perfect condition. I even included pictures. I thought they’d want to know as business owners because I would! She told me it happened in shipping. I, once again, explained that the shipping box arrived in perfect condition. I truly wasn’t asking for anything but she offered to replace it. A few weeks later I decided to take her up on her offer because my daughter said she would have loved it. I wrote her and she told me to let her know what size box I’d be using to return it so she could send me a label. First, I have never heard of a company asking for dimensions of a box for return labels. Second, I could not believe she was asking me to return this nasty roller. What were they going to do with it? She went on to basically call me a liar. She stated they would NEVER send out a product in that condition. I just dropped it at that point. **Update: I was charged for another 3 month subscription that I didn’t want so I wrote to explain I wanted to cancel. Two people got back to me within 5 minutes saying that it had been canceled and refunded. I thought that was beyond fantastic. Also, I need to add, I did enjoy many of the products I received.

I like that it is cruelty-free; but I did not feel that I got my money's worth for the MINI box with what I received. Their own brand of essential oils (2), small pair of earrings, notebook, friendship cards, bag of nuts, gum, lip brush, and an accessory for a water bottle- at almost 40 dollars w/tax+shipping. The customization also did not work and I contacted CS; they are sending me a replacement of what I originally picked out. So their cause is good, the customer service is good; I just feel that for the money I did not get a great deal and the customizing was off. If anything better off getting the premium box but it is outside my budget.
