Revolve #Revolve Summer Beauty Box – out now

Revolve Beauty is back with a new edition of their beauty box and this one looks pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. You probably heard me speak about Revolve Beauty and their beauty boxes before, but in case you haven’t, let me tell you a few things about Revolve. If you are new onto this blog, you might have missed my previous posts on the topic, however if not, hopefully this will serve as a refresher or simply feel free to skip to the good part.

What is Revolve?

For those who have not heard of Revolve before, Revolve is an American online retailer that specialises in both male and female fashion. However, Revolve also has an ever expanding beauty section which is always worth checking out. As of late, Revolve started coming out with cute beauty boxes such as the one I will talk more about in the following section, but they also do beauty advent calendars or simply sell beauty products you might not be able to find in store in he EU/the United Kingdom. Honestly, that is the exact reason I ended up shopping at Revolve in the first place – for the beauty products I could not purchase locally.

Once I started buying products from Revolve more than 24 months ago, I never looked back. The prices are amazing, the quality of goods is always good (as far as I am aware) and above all else they ship internationally and they do it super fast. Both my orders to the United Kingdom as well as to the EU arrived in 4 working days. The last parcel I got from them was delivered on the 4th working day at 9.00AM. Talk about punctuality!

Another reason why I love Revolve other than for their amazing products and the products I cannot get from anywhere else is the fact that the retailer allows you to cover all taxes and customs fees at checkout which not only speeds up the process, but for countries such as mine, it makes it significantly easier. That is definitely a plus in my book.

Since loosing access to several of my favourite shops since moving away from the United Kingdom and even more now with Brexit and shipping restrictions due to the pandemic, the possibility of having something shipped from a retailer means significantly more than it ever did before. There, I said it. Of course that Revolve will benefit from my business as long as they make it possible for me to give t to them.

Now, let’s get back to the topic this article was intended to be about and that is the Revolve Summer Beauty Box. Let’s see what in inside the box, shall we?

Revolve Summer Beauty Box Price and Value

The next thing I know that you are interested after seeing the above contents is price and value so I won’t beat around the bush any longer. The newly released beauty box from Revolve has a value of $365 which roughly translates to £260. The beauty box however is priced at £108. For the UK, unlike for other countries, the price shown includes all fees and taxes so there are no surprises at checkout. What you see is what you pay.

Do rest assured though. If you are shopping from outside the UK, you not only can pay the taxes at checkout, but you will find that they are typically lower than what you might expected. Also, in my experience, the fees are definitely lower than if I were to pay them upon arrival as there are no handling fees and what not included in this way. You just might have to do the paperwork yourself, but it is super easy and FedEx or the courier used should be able to advice you if not. This is all depending on your country though so I won’t go into more details about how you can deal with taxes and customs fees here.

I have to say that the previous beauty boxes that Revolve released in this year were pretty good. Some are still available here btw. However, I liked this Summer Beauty Box significantly more from the moment I laid eyes on it. No only the idea of full sized items appeals to me, but also the contents themselves. Sure, there are some products in the Revolve Beauty Box that I never say myself purchasing, but I am actually feeling like trying something new and unexpected from brands that I know well and love.

Let’s take the Sol de Janeiro body cream for example. The Bom Dia Bright Body Cream is a product that I have been meaning to purchase ever since it was first released. I even placed it in my basket a few times already, but sadly it got discarded at checkout. Not only have I heard great things about and that it could be a potential solution for my skin bumps, but you already know that I am obsessed with Sol de Janeiro and their products. They have yet to let me know. Sure, there might have been some products that I liked less than others or some whose scent just did not appeal to me in the slightest, but overall they proved themselves to me that their are a brand worth investing in. But seriously, if I could a product for the bumps on my arms that is not “scent free” it would be amazing. I tried several derma cosmetics options and could not hold onto them. don’t get me wrong, derma cosmetics as they are called, are usually incredible and all, but I love my fragrances and having my entire body smelling of a product that is supposedly fragrance free, but does smell of something weird and clinical is not my idea of fun.

I also recently fell in love with Supergoop and their clear SPF, however as much as I like that SPF, the protective value is lower than what I would have liked it to be. If I can find another predict just as amazing from them, but that offer higher protection than I am all for it.

The Bawdy sheet masks have also been on my Revolve wish lists for a while. I am not naive enough to think that the products are the next big thing in beauty or anything of the sort, nor do I believe that I will enjoy using such product if I am being honest, but I do have to say that I am super curious about them. Have you ever tried a sheet mask fro your butt? I did try one for boobs before which was weird enough, but not one for my butt.

SACHAJUAN is a haircare brand that I haven’t tried nearly enough products from. Not only everything I tried previously worked quite well, but SACHAJUAN smells incredible. Their products are luxurious without trying too hard, they feel great and are typically effective. Why not try something new from them?

I have tried French Girl body polishes before. Particularly, I tried the Jasmine one a few months back and while the product does smell incredible and has an interesting texture, it is not a product I fell in love with which was quite unexpected. Yes, after all this time, I still get my hopes up when it comes to certain products even though I should definitely know better.

Overall, I absolutely love the contents of this beauty box. With 11 full-size items, it is definitely way more worth it than purchasing anything individually. If you are a fan of the brands included in this bundle or if you think that these products suit your lifestyle (or, at least some of them), then I would not hesitate to get this beauty box. I am hugely tempted by this new beauty box from Revolve and I will keep it on my wish-list for a bit longer. I made quite a few large purchases recently (software subscriptions & tech) and I feel I should hold off for a bit, especially if there will be an advent calendar released this month that I simply cannot live without.

    Hah, I’m so curious about the butt mask. This and the new Sol de Janeiro cream are the two items from this set I really want. I’ve been meaning to buy the cream and thought about getting it from the SpaceNK on my birthday but the brithday gift had nothing I would have use for so I eventually didn’t get it.

    I had a Sachajuan conditioner or mask in the previous Revolve box, the one with Touchland, and it worked great. Halfway through the bottle I realized it was manufactured in 2016 and I thought about making a fuss to Revolve but then I thought I was already halfway through the bottle and it did work great, smelled and looked fine so in the end I couldn’t be bothered. And it lasted me for 4 or 5 hair washes anyway.

    The rest of the box looks cool and I wish I had more use for those items.
    I don’t even leave the house often enough to finish this year’s SPF bottle (50 ml and I do apply it on my decoltage and nape as well).

    I also like the pricing, it’s an honest 23-ish % more in my currency than in USD and that covers mainly the VAT which, as far as I understand, is not added in the US, so it feels like a totally legit situation.

      Yes. The US does not included tax in prices as far as I know. Sometimes even in store you would end up paying more at checkout than the shown price as they add the taxes then and there. The tax rate also depends on the state. The items from Revolve which are shipped internationally should not include the tax at all as the products are for “export” and delivery country specific taxes should apply. I am not a tax accountant/ consultant though. I kindly ask anyone from the US to correct me if I am wrong 😆. However for my country as well. The price is in line with what is expected. What I cannot believe about this box is that it includes the Sol de Janeiro new cream in full size. That never happens…
