Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2017 Review

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 2.52.10 PM

Hi there all my lovies!! Welcome to the blog today, and happy hump day, lol, let’s jump right into today’s blog, because I only have a limited amount of time today (it’s nap time) so I am going to rush through this blog post today, I hope that’s okay. I just received my Walmart Beauty Box for Spring a few days ago, and wanted to get it up for you all as soon as possible, in case it’s still available, and you wanted to get one! The Walmart Beauty Box is $5 (that covers shipping, the box is free) this box is all beauty related, and is shipped quarterly, which is 4 boxes a year, 1 box per season. When you sign up for the box, it is automatically paid, and the $5 is deducted from your account for the box. I have been a subscriber since the first box was released, and think it’s a great valued box, although I do feel like the brands repeat quite a bit unfortunately, and wish they would get new brands to be in the box. I love trying out new products, hint to why I am a beauty blogger, lol, right? so this box has always been good for me, and a good deal, because otherwise I wouldn’t have the opportunity to try out these products. Everything that is sampled in the box can be found at Walmart, which I shop at anyways, so it is very easy to pick up the full size products, if I end up liking them, which is nice. Let’s check out everything that I got in my Spring beauty box, and fyi the box will vary depending on your age, I am 35, so I am not sure which box I get, and may have changed my age at some point to get the younger box lol, which I believe is called the “trendsetter” but, who knows! What do you think of the box? Do you think it is worth the $5 quarterly? Do you end up using the products, and or coupons? Sometimes I feel like I won’t use some of the products, and I am not a huge couponer either so I feel like those get wasted in the box. If you would like to sign up here is the link 🙂 Enjoy the pictures, I will be back on Friday with another post, really trying to do the 3 posts a week, and stick to it! Thanks as always for your support!

Walmart Summer Beauty Box

WALMART BEAUTY BOX

IMG_5859

Hello there loves! I hope you are all having a happy Friday, and end to your weekend/ start of your weekend!! Oh how I love weekends, and time to relax I tell ya, especially in the summer! I got my walmart beauty box a few weeks ago, and am now sitting down to review it. As you may know walmart beauty box is a quarterly subscription box that comes every season, or four times a year. The box is priced at $5 per box, but basically they only charge for shipping, so the samples in the box are technically free, and there is nothing better than free right? Nope 🙂 It’s a great way to sample new products, or products that they are trying to push out on the market at their stores right now, there is always coupons included in the box as well, I wanted to mention, but I don’t include them in the picture, just in case someone wants to somehow copy them. I love trying new products, especially when they are affordable, and can easily be found at my walmart, it’s so fun, then if I like it, I can easily use a coupon if they included one, and purchase it! It’s super easy, and very smart for walmart to do these boxes! 

This summer box is one of the better ones I have received, I have been subscribed for about a year and a half now, and really like everything in the box this time, and I know I will use everything too! This summer box has a great variety, and it has everything for a summer trip, literally even toothpaste! Awesome right? If you are interested in this box, you should give walmart beauty box a try, I think for $20 a year it is well worth it 🙂 If you want to subscribe go to walmart.com/beauty, thanks for checking out my review! 

Okay, so you agree it’s a pretty great box right? Especially for $5! My favorite thing in the box this season was the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I have always loved this face scrub, it’s the perfect amount of scrub, and texture, it gets the deep down clean that I look for in a scrub. I also really love the sample of Sally Hansen’s airbrush legs, I love using this in the summer, and there is a really good amount in the sample tube, enough for both of my legs so that was perfect. I have a tan now yeah! There is nothing better than being tan to me for some reason lol! My skin just looks better 🙂 The Incoco nail art is cute as well, just a bit to young for my 35 year old self, but they do look fun, and cute, I will find a way to try them out, and see how they work. All in all, a great box, I can’t wait to see what is in the fall walmart beauty box!!!!

PLAY! By Sephora May 2016 Review

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 11.38.25 PM.png

IMG_5274.JPG

Hello lovies, I hope everyone has been good, it has been like a month, and a half since I have blogged last, how does time go by so very quickly, busy, busy life that’s for sure. If you haven’t read my life update post, please jump on over, and give it a read, I would greatly appreciate it! Anyways, I am still getting tons of subscription boxes, and really feel the need to review them, even though this one is late, and not the best pictures, I wanted to get this post up. I hope you all enjoy, if you haven’t heard, this box is now open to everyone so go ahead, and subscribe if you want to try it out, it’s a great way to sample high end brands that sephora carries for $10 a month! This was my first box, and here is what I thought 🙂 

For $10, it really can’t be beat, I kinda wish that they kept the “spoilers” from us, because by the time my box came, I knew exactly what I was getting, which kinda takes the fun out of it, in my opinion. The box arrived beautifully packaged with a heavy duty box, which I can appreciate so things don’t get broken yeah!!! Then, inside the box there is a great pamphlet telling you everything that is is the box, but not just that, it tells you HOW to use them, double yeah! There is also your PLAY card which if you bring it into your local sephora, you get 50 extra bonus points when you make a purchase, oh man, I just realized that I should have used it, of course I forgot about it, bummer! Next month I hope to remember lol! Everything, all your samples are packed in a super cute drawstring pouch,  how fun, kinda reminds me of another popular subscription service…… 😉 wink, wink. It is very cute though, and I definitely will use it! The samples are a great selection so far, I love the mix of skincare, makeup, haircare, and perfume, that’s pretty cool, such a variety that you get to sample, but I would love to see more makeup obviously, but you knew I would say that lol! Overall the samples are tiny, sadly the tarte cosmetics lip liner is beautiful, but it is SOOOO tiny 😦 Oh well, I am happy with the box, and love samples, so it all was good to me! 

I think this subscription box is a great deal, although I kinda wish they offered a 6 month, or a year subscription to save a little money, hmmm maybe I should tweet, and suggest that! Did any of you subscribe to this box, please comment, and let me know what you think, I would love to know 🙂 Do you think it’s worth the $10? I love how every month is a different theme as well, I am excited about June’s box, fun, fun, because you never know what your getting, or what brands! I definitely think it’s worth a try if you are a beauty lover like myself, and can’t get enough samples!! I love sephora, so this was perfect for me, they sure do make that money lol! My favorite product this month was the bite beauty lipstick, bite has always been my favorite lipstick brand, I just love the pigmentation, and quality, it makes my lips feel wonderful too!

Walmart Beauty Box Fall 2015

Hi everyone, what’s up, how are all of you doing? Great, I hope! I have the walmart beauty box for fall 2015 for you today! I am so far behind in blogging with taking my break, sorry it feels like I am blogging to much, because well I am, lol to catch up, but it’s all good! Blogging is always fun, just it’s hard finding the time for everything. As in previous walmart box unboxing this is an amazing sample beauty box for $5! It is a quarterly box, and once you sign up it automatically charges your card, and ships directly to you each season. I wish it was more often, but hey that’s okay. This box continues to get better every time I get it!! This box is in my opinion the best one yet! It has so many great brands inside, and the coupons alone are worth the $5 paid, sounds great right? I highly recommend you checking out this box, it’s so worth the $5, I am already using some of the products included! The deodorant from dove is my favorite, it smells really good, and works at keeping me dry, and smelling fresh all day, I will definitely purchase the full size!! I also really am enjoying the simple cleansing wipes! It seems crazy that I haven’t tried them before, I have heard so much about them, I really do like them, and they work great at removing dirt, oil, and makeup! Overall, I think the walmart beauty box is great, and definitely think it’s worth trying out! Sorry the pictures today aren’t the best, my lighting wasn’t in my favor today unfortunately!

Birchbox Special Edition “EVERYDAY GLAMOUR” Unboxing & Review

w_lte_fallbeauty_01_900x900

Hi there loves! I hope you are doing well, and are having a great week! I wanted to share a special limited edition box with you!! As you may have noticed, pretty much every birchbox limited edition box that birchbox releases, I have to have! I can’t help it, especially the beauty ones that’s for sure, I just love them!!! I think that they are put together perfectly, and are a great deal for the price you pay, like for instance this one “everyday glamour” box is $48, then you can use a 20% coupon promo code on it, and if you are an ace you get free shipping, great right? This box has a total value of $197, wow!!! I believe it, that’s why I love to purchase these boxes, because the value is always there, even if you don’t like, or won’t use some of the items in the box, you can always swap or give them away as gifts! This box isn’t as great as my favorite limited edition box the “vanity fair box” but it’s pretty great none the less, and I really enjoy everything in the box. My favorite thing in the box is the lip gloss from smith & cult, I haven’t tried anything from this brand, and this lip gloss is the lightest amount of shimmer, non sticky, and the packaging is absolutely beautiful, a little bit of luxury in a tube! I also am a huge fan the brand Stephanie Johnson, I have a few things from her line (all that I have gotten in limited edition birchbox’s) that are some of my favorites!!! Everything is so well made, and the patterns, and textures are stunning, such high quality, this is my 4th piece from the brand, and I love them all! Overall, this is a great box, highly recommend getting it, especially if you have a coupon promo code! I always keep all the limited edition boxes, they are always so fancy, and perfect for holding all kinds of stuff!

Terra Bella Box Eco-Friendly New Beauty Subscription Box Review

image11 October Box-1884x2542

Screen Shot 2015-10-20 at 3.20.30 PM

Hi there all my lovely readers, and followers, I hope everyone is having a great start to their week, yes I realize that I have been not great about posting, and today I am starting fresh, I gotta get back on track, I tell ya, time just seems to fly by, I have to start scheduling, and sticking to it! Thanks for hanging in there!

I have an amazing brand new subscription box to introduce to you today, by brand new I mean this is the second box they have released, yeah so exciting!!! It is a company called terra bella box!! I heard about this new subscription box through my instagram account, I hadn’t heard about them before, and saw some sneak peeks, and I think they started following me, so I decided to contact them because the box looked great, and is just what I was looking for! They decided to send me the October beauty box, which I was so happy to receive! I knew it would be a great box just by the packaging, ha, yes all of us beauty lovers, and bloggers do make first impressions, we can’t help it right? I had a good feeling about this one as soon as I opened the package, it smelt so good, I got excited that’s for sure! Upon first peek, I saw several items tucked in this little box, I was actually pretty surprised at how many products were in there, definitely impressed yet again! As I started pulling each product out, I knew I was going to use, and love everything! This box is a priced a little higher then I would like, but I am hoping that because they are a new subscription box, and are just getting the hang of things, that the value will increase, and get better. We are all looking for good quality, high end products, a lot of these featured in the box are hand made as well, which I love! I also know that we all like getting “a bang for our buck” and I am hoping with time they will improve that, that is my only issue with the box, hey I am being honest here 🙂 My favorite item in the box is both of the mineral eyeshadows, they are both STUNNING, and I am always a huge fan of “good for you” cosmetics, they are both highly pigmented, and very beautiful! I also can’t wait to use the toner, just the packaging is adorable, I love that it is “bare bones” and doesn’t include any harsh chemicals, so natural! Please check out my promo code below at the end of this post for a discount, and for more information on subscription pricing on the terra bella box! 

Lets take a look at all the items!

Close up of the makeup items- see how beautiful the eyeshadows are, and the lip butter smells amazing!

 image7 image8 image9

Please note- This is from the terra bella website directly describing the box. 

“In the October Terra Bella Box you will find two different mineral eyeshadows–one for a smoky eye evening look from Hex Cosmetics Potions in Apparition, and one for a daytime matte look from Blackbird Cosmetics in Immortals. Both are really pigmented and blend beautifully! There is also a luscious whipped lip butter from Live Beautifully in pumpkin and vanilla–perfect for October. It melts onto your lips and leaves them feeling soft and supple–if you can resist the urge to eat it! Trust us, you will want to! Next we have a toner from Bare Bones Body Care, that is about as natural as you can get. It will leave your skin feeling clean and soft, without any nasty chemicals–and the bottle is to die for. You will want to leave this on your counter for guests to see well past Halloween! The soap in this box is from Three Sisters Apothecary with Soap Cauldron. It is a half size bar of Gravenstein Apple & Clove and it really puts you in the mood for fall. It has a wonderful formula of shea butter and essentials oils and leaves your skin feeling wonderful, without any residue. The last item is a Dead Sea Mud Mask from Batty’s Bath. It is pure dead sea mud, but doesn’t have an off-putting smell or texture. It helps to purify your skin by drawing out toxins and leaves you feeling like you’ve been to a spa. The items in this box were lovingly handmade in small batches from some of the finest natural ingredients by small businesses who have a love for their craft. Always cruelty free and ethically sourced ingredients, made with love and delivered right to your doorstep.”

If you would like to try out this amazing subscription box, they are offering a discount code to my readers, it is:

BFLY

which is good for $3 off the month-to-month subscription price of Terra Bella Box (does not apply to Terra Bella Box Lite)
