Beauty DNA Unboxing - August 2014

Saturday, August 23, 2014

BeautyDNA is a monthly haircare, skincare and body care subscription service that sends you a curated full size product every month for $25. The curated item is chosen by a computer algorithm that has been based on a very in-depth beauty profile filled out by you! I have been using the service since March and it has become one of my very favorite subscriptions! I always seem to get a great product and the value of each box way exceeds the $25 price tag. To read more about the subscription box, check out my first post on the service!
The product I received in this month's BeautyDNA box was the Avéne RétrinAL cream. According to the Avéne website, RétrinAL is a clinically proven skin rejuvenation cream that visibly reduces the signs of aging with little to no irritation. While I have no major wrinkles just yet, I know it's never too early to start taking better of care of your skin to prevent future wrinkles. 
I've only tried one other product for the Avène line, the Cleanance lotion, which is an oil-free moisturizer that absorbs oil and provides long lasting mattification. This has become my go-to morning moisturizer so I'm really excited to get to try out another product from the Avène line. I was only disappointed in the scent, it smells like a cream or serum, but I guess I can't be too choosy when it comes to repairing night treatments. They can't all smell like roses, like their moisturizer!

Have you ever tried Avène or BeautyDNA? Have a favorite beauty subscription of your own? Share them with me in the comments below!


  1. I'm only 21 and do all the anti-wrinkle stuff because I, too, believe it's never too early! A little money and effort now will be worth it in 30 years, I say. I've heard wonderful things about Avène, I believe it's actually a drugstore brand (in France). I'll have to check it out!

    1. Same here! Plus, I'm such a beauty addict that I'll try everything out at least once! So far, I'm actually loving it! It's got such a soft, creamy texture and absorbs super well. I even noticed my skin is smoother since I started using it!
