What a Girl Needs Mystery Collection (Total Beauty Box)


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $25

THE SKINNY: You know we are a little obsessed with beauty subscription boxes here at Beauty Test Dummies and jumped at the chance to try one of the new mystery boxes from Total Beauty.

This box almost made me squeal when I opened it -- seriously. Awesome products that were well over the $25 price tag, including a full-size Rapid Lash Eyebrow and Eyelash Serum. If you want to try one of these serums (which are pricey), this box is for you.

The What a Girl Needs Mystery Collection box contained a great mix of basic, drugstore products and more premium items as well. All of the signature items were full sizes too! I have to admit this is one box that I will probably use every product right away. (We'll review each product individually over the next few weeks.)

Here's what you'll find inside the box:
  • Rapid Lash Eyebrow and Eyelash Serum – $49.95
  • Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Rose Romance – $14
  • Dove Go Sleeveless Deodorant – $4.99
  • St. Ives Apricot Face Scrub – $3.99
  • Elan Veda Skin Renue Anti-Aging Serum – Sample
  • Eboost Daily Health Booster – $4.20
What's different about the Total Beauty Collection from other boxes is that you pick which boxes to buy and order them. It's not an actual subscription service. They offer a mix of mystery boxes, such as this one, and no-surprise boxes, where you can see every item before you can buy.

Overall, Total Beauty really impressed with this collection. We have previously tried and loved the Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon and the Dove deodorant line is a perennial favorite, even though I have not tried one of the Go Sleeveless ones yet.

CHECK IT OUT: This is a selection of products that any woman should have in her beauty arsenal. You can buy it online until supplies run out.
