A Look Inside the Beauty Brands 19-Piece Haircare Must-Haves Bag (Available Now for $9.99)

Beauty Brands sent me their new 19-piece haircare bag in advance of its release so that I could give you a look while this is still available for purchase (I'm guessing it will sell out within a week or so, if it's anything like their previous bags). I know a lot of us are thinking about stocking stuffers and presents right now, and this might be a nice choice to give as a gift (or divide into several small gifts).

This bag retails for $9.99 on the Beauty Brands website HERE. Free shipping on orders $50+ at Beauty Brands ($5.95 on orders under $50), and you get free mystery samples with every purchase. This bag is also available in-store, in case you live near a Beauty Brands (you can check store locations here).

I want to tell you right off the bat that the It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In 2.0 oz. bottle in this bag retails for $11.99 at just about every retailer (including Beauty Brands). So you're literally getting everything else free and saving $2 off the retail price of the It's A 10 product. Even if you paid the $5.95 for shipping on orders under $50, that comes out to $15.94 total, which would be like paying $11.99 for the It's A 10 product plus $3.95 for 18 other items.

UPDATE: thanks to readers Unknown and Southern Valley Girl for the comments below letting us know that if you buy two bags, you can use code EC13422 at checkout to receive $3.50 off $10. Even better!

So let's take a look:

Front of bag

Please note that, per Beauty Brands, the bag contents MAY vary slightly depending on your region. On the Beauty Brands website, they list some of the other items you may receive instead of some of the items you see here. Based on my experience with previous Beauty Brands bags like this, I think that the majority of the contents will be the same for everyone, with only slight variations (if the contents vary at all; you may get everything you see below). 

All of the products in this bag are travel sizes or packets. There are 19 items total (including the bag).
  • Travel Bag
  • Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Shampoo & Conditioner (packets; 0.34 oz x 2)
  • Alterna Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner (packets; 0.25 oz x 2 )
  • Redken High Rise Volume Shampoo & Conditioner (packets; 0.17 oz x 2 )
  • Wella EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight Beauty Balm Lotion (0.19 oz packet)
  • Moroccanoil Treatment Original (0.34 oz)
  • Amika Touchable Hairspray (0.75 oz)
  • Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel (1.7 oz)
  • Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock (1.7 oz)
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product (2.0 oz)
  • Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek Shampoo & Conditioner (1.7 oz x 2)

Back of bag 

  • Bath Pouf
  • Travel Hairbrush
  • Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo & Conditioner (1.7 oz x 2)
  • Devacurl Whip It Good Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip (1.0 oz packet)
  • CHI Silk Infusion (0.5 oz)
  • Orly Breathable Treatment Nail Lacquer in Beauty Essential (coral creme) (0.18 oz)

Also included in this bag are three coupons that contain codes for both in-store and online redemption (except for the free Paraffin Dip, which is in-store only). I cut off the barcodes and codes in my photo because the coupons state that they may not be reproduced. 
  • $5 off $25 Sexy Hair purchase
  • Free Paraffin Dip ($10 value; available in-store only)
  • $5 off $25 Kenra Haircare purchase

Again, I think this bag is a nice value considering that the It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In 2.0 oz. bottle retails for $11.99. So you're getting 18 other items for free and saving $2 off the retail price of the It's A 10 product. Even if you paid the $5.95 for shipping on orders under $50, that comes out to $15.94 total, which would be like paying $11.99 for the It's A 10 product plus $3.95 for 18 other items.

I hope this post gives you a better idea of what to expect if you order this bag. And of course you know I would love to hear from you if you decide to get it!

  1. I ordered 2 of these bags yesterday and was able to use the code EC13422 for $3.50 off any qualifying $10 purchase.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this. What a steal! At first I thought you were showing 2 different bags and I was trying to decide which was the better value. When I noticed it was front and back I hurried and bought two, lol. I also used code EC13422 for $3.50 off at check out. It helped with the shipping

  3. Thanks so much to both of you for the code tips! So happy to hear that you both were excited to order this bag--it's a great value and such a fun present for the holidays. :)

  4. I got the bag last year and it was well worth it so I will probably pick up a couple this year. I can't agree more with It's a Ten in this bag the rest is icing on the cake! 😊

    1. Agreed! I got last year's too and loved it. I just looked at my post from last year and the only repeats in this bag are the It's A 10 and the bath pouf. Even the brush is different this time (and I like this year's bag more than last year's). :)

  5. Came on to tell you about this deal but you already had :) thank you always, G!

    1. Aaaw, you are so sweet to even think of me when you saw this! I so appreciate that, Kim. xoxo

  6. G Honey, thank you so much for the continued tips!! I too got 2 bags like Southern Valley Girl and it came to $22.43 no tax and the code helped with shipping. Well worth all the goodies that are in those bags. There are 19 pieces and that is such a good deal. ;-)

    1. Yay!! You're so welcome. That is an excellent deal and I'm so glad you were able to jump on it before these bags go out of stock! :)

  7. Great deal! I bought two and used the coupon code for $3.50 off. Thank you!

  8. Thanks just got 2 and used the coupon. These are great for xmas gifts for my coworkers. 😊

  9. Awesome!! Thank you so much for posting what you received! :D I don't regret buying this bags last year and seems like I won't regret buying this one either!! I purchased two yesterday morning and used the discount code as well and it worked! I'm tempted to buy another one 😄

  10. For those who do not want to buy 2 bags but still would like a tiny discount, I just used the code "TTTEN" to get 1 dollar off the bag :)

  11. Thank you! Ordered a bag and a travel shower gel. $14.94 shipped, great deal!

  12. Never tried this but may have to when pay day hits ina few days if still in stock. Def looks good.

  13. Hey G, great post :) does beauty brands usually take awhile to ship? Place an order on 10/31 and still waiting on update. Thanks :)

  14. I ordered 2 bags as well. I was actually missing 4 items in each bag. I didn't get any of the matrix items except for the ones in packets. Customer service just sent a generic message saying that # of items or item brand may vary. It's still a good value but I feel cheated.

    1. Wow, that's a shame(I feel bad for you), I ordered one and got 17 items, missing also the Matrix Totals, which I wanted to give to my mother, who loves them. I feel the same way because they advertised it as 19 items, so anything else is bologne from their part to say that quantities vary...blah blah
