Total Beauty, Review of The Fresh & Beautiful Collection + 40% Discount Code

Total Beauty is not a monthly subscription service; rather, they offer various limited edition cosmetic collections that include both full size products and samples.  Sometimes they reveal one or more of the products you will get.  The rest are "mystery" beauty products.  Prices vary by collection.  The collections seem to be composed of loosely themed assortments of products.

I purchased "The Fresh & Beautiful Collection" for $20.  Price-wise that was a mistake as you'll see if you read all the way to the bottom of this post.  The theme of this collection is "spring cleaning".  There was one revealed product...the Orglamix Pure + Natural Loose Color Concentrate in Rose Gold; more about that later.  The other four products were surprises.  

The Fresh & Beautiful Collection arrived in a really cool space-agey looking box with a black matte finish:

Inside, the box has a quite sophisticated design, customized to hold five products in a nest of hot pink crinkles:

The first product is a full size bottle of Nailtini nail lacquer in the color "Grenadine", a hot plum pink color.

Next is a Senna lip gloss in "Rock Candy".  I am not familiar with this brand but this is a sparkly go-with-anything pale pink color.

Then there is a luxury size sample of DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil.  If you have received DHC's product catalog in the mail, it usually has a tiny sample of this product.  This is a super emollient cleanser that gets every last trace of makeup off.  There is enough here to last me a very long time.

Next comes the Orglamix Pure + Natural Loose Color Concentrate in Rose Gold, the one "revealed" product in this collection.  This is a loose color concentrate that can be used on either eyes or cheeks.  This is made with 100% pure minerals and can be applied wet or dry.  Really stunning and slightly iridescent color!

The last product in this collection is "Vanda Orchid Mist" by the June Jacobs Spa Collection. This is a spray-on toner that you mist on your face and neck after cleansing.  It has a very light and pleasant floral scent.  Although I don't think this is full size, there is quite a bit of product in this bottle.

Now I have the bad news for me and the GREAT news for you! As I said, I paid $20 for this collection. It is now available here for just $12 (free shipping) when you use the code FLASH at checkout.  As these products are valued at more than $50, this is an incredible offer!

I don't know if this is an end of season deal or just a short term discount, but I would RUN, not walk, to pick up this collection. You just can't beat the price and gorgeous presentation. Another great reason to get this collection is that there is no further obligation to buy; Total Beauty is not a subscription service.

I have a feeling that the deep discount on "The Fresh & Beautiful Collection" may mean that they are about to retire this one to make way for a new collection. If so, even more reason to grab it now. I might even pick up another one myself.

As always, I appreciate my readers so much!
