Beauty DNA Unboxing-July 2014

Monday, July 28, 2014

Beauty DNA is a skincare, body and hair product subscription service that offers great customization to help you get the best products matched personalized for you. The service is currently in a beta program. Once a month, they charge you a flat $25 and send you a product that has been personalized for your needs based on a in-depth beauty profile. For more information on Beauty DNA, check out my earlier post. Now, let's get to this month's match!

I actually received two products in my Beauty DNA box this month. The first product was the Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner valued at $18. I have yet to try out this product, but I can't wait to use it! The scent is so unbelievably soothing and it is actually quite a tasty smell. I feel like it would be a mini spa treatment for my hair. Sephora describes this product as a way to 

"Pamper and invigorate your stressed-out tresses with this luxurious, multitasking cleanser and conditioner designed to impart shine, luster, and softness. The lightweight, low-lather formula is a universal product that caters to all your haircare needs, regardless of hair type. Herbal extracts like aloe leaf juice and sweet almond oil help your locks retain moisture, while protecting them from daily and future damage."

This product is supposed to be able replace shampoo, conditioner and leave in conditioning treatments. I have read some reviews that it can make your hair a little heavy, but I'll have it to test it out and report back to you on that one! All I know is that it smells divine and I can't wait to use it. 

The second product that I received in my Beauty DNA box this month was my bonus product, the Ahava Caressing Body Sorbet valued at $26. This product is a part of the Active Dead Sea Minerals collection by Ahava. The Ahava site describes this product saying that it 

"Gives skin an extra boost of hydration with Dead Sea minerals, vitamins and plant extracts. This refreshing cream-gel quickly absorbs into skin, providing it with pampering moisture. Skin is left leaving skin supple and protected against environmental damage. The energizing scent of Mandarin and Cedarwood rejuvenates the senses."

I tried this product a few times and I really loved the texture. Its not super thick like a body butter, but is more of a light cream. The description says its a cream-gel and I think that describes the product well. It absorbs super nicely and my arms and legs were smooth all day. I'm not sure how I feel about the scent as I'm not a huge fan of Cedarwood, but it may grow on me. I can't wait to really test out both of these products and report back. 

What do you think of the Beauty DNA subscription service? Can you see it being something you would try out? Let me know in the comments below!
