Are you a beauty subscription box addict like me? If so you might want to take a look at the Oprah Magazine Circle of Friends Beauty Box. The box is part of the O Circle of Friends program that I subscribed to. As a huge Oprah fan I knew this was something I needed to be a part of. The price for this program is $129 for a value of over $420. The following information is taken straight from the O Circle of Friends site:
O’s Circle of Friends is a special annual membership club that gives you access to a unique collection of perks and privileges that will deepen your connection to the world of O and Oprah Winfrey.

I’ve received 2 boxes so far. I believe one is my welcome box and the second is one of the seasonal boxes. These boxes are put together by Glossy Box specifically for O Magazine. Just like other subscription boxes, each box comes with a card that has descriptions of the products.
Products in my first Oprah Magazine Circle of Friends Beauty Box:
- Emite’ Lip and Cheek Tint – A natural pop of color for lips and cheeks in a universally flattering shade. I like the way this leaves a stain on my lips. Full size $19 for .2 ounce
- Babor Masterpiece Ampoule Set – Skincare superheroes designed to instantly repair and protect dry skin. Full size $38 for seven ampoules
- Simply Venom Night Cream – Night cream with antioxidants and peptides to improve skin texture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Full size $69 for 1 ounce
- Eyeko Fat Stick in Satin – A metallic eye makeup pencil in a nice neutral shade to transform your eye makeup with one quick swipe. Full size $12
- Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat – This product is supposed to strengthen, brighten, seal and protect natural nails with Keratin. Full size $30 for .6 ounces
As I researched further to get you all the information on this program it seems that maybe this is no longer an active subscription program that can be signed up for. I will reach out to their customer service department and will post an update on the information that I find out soon.
What do you think of this Circle of Friends Beauty Box and the program? Is it something that interests you or is it “just another Glossy Box” subscription with a few extra perks?

I subscribed to Glossy Box for a while, and they did a good job. The attention to detail was terrific, and your box has that same look. Sounds like a good program for fans of Oprah coz you get the mag too.

That’s a rather interesting box, I don’t know most of the brands, but the variety of products is appealing.

Does that $129 cost include 3 boxes plus the subscription? I’ll be interested in your update.

The box doesn’t look any more special than a regular box to me. I do tend to be fairly critical of sub boxes.

This is a very interesting mix of products.

This looks like a really good box! I had the same question that Marcia has about whether the $129.00 includes 3 boxes plus the subscription.
It’s a bit pricey but I like that you got a good mix of products!

Happy Birthday a little early 🙂 I hope you have a great day.
Thank you SO much!! Stacie xo
I saw this and thought it best to warn anyone who is signing up for this. I joined O’s Circle of Friends 2 years ago for a price of $299. This was supposed to include the magazine and numerous beauty boxes along with a special box for your birthday. I received a few issues of the magazine and that was it! I never received a beauty box nor did I receive a birthday box. I could not get my money back because by the time I realized that this was a bad decision, the bank said I had waited too long to file a complaint for a charge back on my credit card and they could not do anything because I had actually received a few copies of the magazine and they couldn’t be responsible for what the advertisement said as I did admit to receiving the magazine. I finally was able to find out who sent out the boxes and contacted them by phone and was told that the reason I had not received anything was because the boxes are done by Glossy Box and they had difficulty sourcing the items for the beauty boxes. I was told to contact the magazine who basically ignored me. I received none of what was advertised and lost the money. It was a complete rip-off and it is a shame that the magazine is using Oprah’s brand to sell something they do not send!
Oh no! That’s terrible! I remember it being pretty expensive when it first came out and I didn’t buy it then. I saw it advertised a few months ago for a lot lower price which is why I gave it a try now. I’ve liked Glossy Box subscriptions in the past so I find this to be a fun one for me. I hope you’re able to settle up with them and get your money back since you didn’t get what you paid for. Stacie xo

Happy Birthday! I joined Oprah Circle of Friends – last September and after four emails finally got my first box last week (same as you recently received) . I really liked the products but the subscription price YIKES for possibly three boxes ….. and a newsletter (mag & glossy box subscription is a better option for me).
Thank you!! It took a while for my first box to arrive too. And now I’ve gotten two of them, so I bet your second one will arrive soon too. I love the Oprah magazine and always have. You get the subscription and a gift subscription too. I think this is a fun and different program and hopefully they will improve it as time goes on and they learn from consumer input. Thanks for stopping by! Stacie xo

Were you able to reach their customer service department? I actually want to cancel my subscription, but it keeps “auto-renewing”.
I never did get a reply when I contacted customer service. However, after I contacted them I did start to receive my boxes. Keep trying their customer service email. Stacie xo

I subscribed to Glossy Box for a while, and they did a precise job. The attention to element was once terrific, and your container has that same look. Sounds like a accurate program for fans of Oprah coz you get the mag too.
