Trendmood Box Takeover by Ole Henriksen

I already think that the Trendmood Box is something new and iconic in the beauty industry. It’s not the usual subscription box like we’re used to. Moreover, it’s fully packed with beauty products we all love and adore. PLUS there are even products in this box who haven’t launched yet. But is it worth the money? 

So let’s start off by introducing Trendmood if you haven’t heard of her before. Trendmood is an Instagram account, run by Sophie, which provides the beauty community information about new product launches, swatches, etc. etc. I believe Sophie never sleeps because she’s pretty much always the first person to announce a new product launch or a sneak peek of a (new) product. 

I have been following Trendmood for years because she makes it easy to stay updated about all the different beauty brands and their products. I also love how her husband is also helping her out by showing products or events, he is also known as Mr. Trendmood lol! 

Trendmood, Sophie and her husband decide to take it a step further and announced that they were doing a Trendmood box. This is not a subscription box. Each box will be treated as a separate launch. Some months could have 1-2 launches, while others might not have a launch. 

Moreover, it’s a who comes first, gets the first box and once it’s sold out there’s no chance of getting it anymore. Once the box sells out, it’s gone! So this means no restocks and just one chance. 

Which means stress and anxiety lol. It feels pretty much the same as the first Kylie Cosmetic launches where products sell out within seconds. This also happens with the Trendmood boxes. In the meantime, Trendmood launched 4 normal Trendmood boxes and 1 Take Over box. The normal boxes include 4-5 different products from different brands. The Take Over box includes 4-5 different products from the same brand. 

I have been wanting a Trendmood box since the first one got announced. Even though I really liked them all, I was extra excited when I saw the Ole Henriksen Take Over Box. I love Ole Henriksen products and this box was a perfect way to get multiple Ole Henriksen products for a very great price. 

So I was fully prepared, full of anxiety and with my credit card beside me waiting for it to drop. I think I’m a little bit more experienced now because of the stressful Kylie Cosmetics sales lol but I still was a bit nervous if I would be able to get a box.  

Unfortunately, the Trendmood Box is currently only available within the US. But with my shipping method I explained a while ago, I was able to get it shipped to me! I ordered the box probably within a minute (I’m not even kidding) and it shipped not even 24 hours later. Ready to see which products were in the Trendmood x Ole Henriksen Tak Over Box? Let’s get started!

Since every Trendmood box includes different products, the price isn’t the same for every box. I got this Trendmood box for $59 but it doesn’t mean that all of them will be this price. However, until now all the boxes have been between $40-$60. The products inside this box are: 

  • The Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum – $65: a serum targeting all major signs of aging, including dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven texture.
  • The Banana Bright Face Primer – $38: illuminating face primer with banana powder-inspired pigments that deliver instant radiance while improving and extending makeup wear.
  • The Banana Bright Eye Crème – $39: targets signs of aging, reducing the look of dark circles while improving concealer application and wear.
  • Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner – $29: supercharged with high-potency AHAs to reduce the look of dark spots.
  • Cold Plunge Pore Mask – $38: A detoxifying, cooling clay mask that instantly reduces the look of pores, smooths skin texture, and controls oil all day.

If you would purchase these 5 products yourself, instead of the box, it would cost $209. This means that you have a $150 discount. That’s insane.

My Thoughts

I think this idea is genius. I appreciate this not being a subscription box because you can pick and choose yourself which box you like and if you think it’s worth purchasing. You won’t end up with a box you won’t like because you could make that decision yourself. 

Moreover, I love the discount. I mean, who doesn’t love a discount?! But this box is insane. You get full-size products for a HUGE discount. I have no words, I’m so grateful for Trendmood. 

The only con I can think of is it being so limited and sells out so quickly. However, Sophie and her husband take feedback very seriously and you can tell they’re working so hard to improve this. The latest box is still available as I’m writing this post. 

Overall, I’m happy to see they take feedback seriously and not as an offend. The first Trendmood box launch was kinda chaotic but customers gave some feedback and they implemented it immediately. I love it when businesses and brands take their customers seriously instead of feeling attacked and do nothing about it. 

I would be happy to purchase another box in the future! 

If you would like to get in the loop of the Trendmood boxes, I would recommend following Trendmood and Trendmood Box on Instagram so you’ll be the first one to read about it. I would also really recommend subscribing to their email list, you’ll be notified when upcoming drops as well as early access to the launch. 

Have you bought a Trendmood Box or do you want to? What product or brand would you like to see next? Let me know in the comments!

    I’ve apparently been living under a rock and never heard of the Trendmood box. This is something that I need to keep an eye on, not just for the insane value, but the chance to test new products. I can’t see myself buying every box, but the opportunity to pick and choose is great, especially for us blogger gals when we want to review something. Thanks for sharing!

      Lmao do you follow Trendmood? If you do then I think it’s a huge achievement for missing it since I feel like she’s posting about it almost every day lol! It’s a great opportunity to catch a great deal & pick and choose our favorite box. 🙂

    I’ve seen these boxes around and I love how much money you get to save with it! My question is, since it comes from America, have you had to pay customs when this arrived? I hate customs and hate ordering from the US because in the UK they charge us the same amount you pay for the product, which is a joke!

      Seriously?! That’s insane! I did have to pay customs however, I saved a couple of orders in my US house (it’s just a PO box but I always joke around that I have a US house lmao) so I could ship it all together, which makes it cheaper for me. But I have to pay customs every time I order something from the US too. 🙁 At least, it is a bit less expensive than your custom charges but it’s still pretty expensive sadly (I believe it’s 21% of the product’s price + 12/13 euros for the postal service).

    Oh man I seriously need to get onto your shipping method so I can take advantage of this Trendmood Box and some other American beauty goodies. This box is such an insanely good price and I’m super jealous you managed to get all of these products so cheaply! I’ve tried the Banana Bright Eye Crème before but would love to get my hands on some more Ole Henriksen products. You’ll have to let us know how all of the products are!

      I promise you won’t regret checking out the shipping method, it’s the best. I’ll definitely post a review once I tested the products! 🙂

    I’m so gutted I didn’t know about this I must have missed her post in this craziness, I would have loved to try this one. I’ve never tried Ole Henriksen because it’s a bit too pricey and this was such a good occasion! I’m dying to try the toner

      This was a really good deal but I can imagine you might have missed it! It was a bit confusing too with the other box she revealed at the same time.

    I agree with you that the TrendMood boxes are such a great value and I also really like that this is not a subscription box. I love that there are new products featured each month and not just stale things that brands had trouble selling! I am super curious how you like the Pore Mask!!!

      Yes, I think that’s so awesome! It’s great for brands to get the hype around their new products + we can try them at a discounted price. I’ll definitely review it once I’ve tested it!
