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 Beauty Box Winter 2016 Review

screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-10-25-53-pm

img_7686

Hi there lovies, I hope you are all having a wonderful day, and staying warm, it is really cold here, straight chilly, so I thought it would be a great day to review the walmart beauty box for Winter, if you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a quarterly subscription box that cost $5 per quarter, the box is actually free, but they charge $5 to ship the box. It’s a great way to try new products that are launching, or new to walmart. They send deluxe, and sometimes full size samples, which is great. They really just want to get these products out there for people to try. I love walmart beauty box, and have had an excellent experience with them, I have been subscribed for over 2 years now, ever since they first launched the subscription. I have really enjoyed this subscription, and always end up trying out, and using all the products so it’s a win, win. It’s always great because it comes with coupons to use toward purchasing the full size products, yet another win, win! I definitely will continue to subscribe, review, and let you know what I think about this box! Like I said this is not a monthly box, it is quarterly, so it comes 4 times a year, so basically you are paying $20 a year to get some great samples to try out. I highly recommend subscribing! You have nothing to loose for $5, even if you give it a try, and then cancel right? If you would like to see all the previous box reviews, feel free to search “walmart” in the search bar to check them out. I think I have reviewed all of them so far, maybe not, but I think I have 🙂 Enjoy. Happy Sampling. I also want to mention that there are variations to this box according to your profile, and age. I am not sure which box I get, I think I may have changed my age at some point to see what comes in the different boxes, lol. Thanks for reading!

Play by Sephora December Subscription Box Review

Screen Shot 2017-01-02 at 8.57.11 PM.png

Hello there lovies!! Happy Tuesday, but it really feels like Monday huh? Happy New Year!! I took the last week off, not really intentionally, but I met my goal on Christmas of posting 5 times a week until Christmas, and was ready for a little break, it has been a super busy week with work, pretty  much non stop, but that’s okay, it kept me really busy. This week has literally flown by, no idea how that happened, December is the busiest time of the year for me, busy, busy! I am so proud of myself to have met my goal, and now I am ready to be back at blogging regularly. Yeah, blogging 5 days a week has really taught me a lot, and showed me that I am able to achieve goals, and fall in love with blogging again, which is so exciting! I really do enjoy it, as always my favorite part is interacting with all my readers (you guys rock) so thank you so much for all your support over the past month! 

Today I am here to share with you my Play by Sephora box. I want to say upfront that this will be my last box. I canceled my subscription, I may change my mind, but for now, I decided the best thing to do for me right now to save some money for the 2017 year is to cancel most of my subscription boxes, so I have slowly been picking, and choosing which ones to cancel. I was so sad to cancel this one, because it has been one of my favorites. I feel like the samples aren’t for me anymore. I have so many samples already, and am trying to get through what I have. Another big reason I am canceling is because I feel like the samples are repeating, and are getting small, I think that Sephora is getting comfortable with these play boxes, and what they put in them. Regardless, I don’t think it’s worth the money, the $10 anymore sadly. I also feel like you can get a lot of these samples for free, or as gifts with purchases, etc. Regardless, this is my opinion, let me know what you think about Play by Sephora. The best thing in this month’s box is the dry bar dry shampoo. I like it, and it works well for my hair type, but I only will be able to use it a couple times because it’s so small. Kinda bummed about the sizes of samples in this month’s box. Let’s check out what I got in my box for December.

Tester Tuesday Fresh & Glamglow

keep-calm-and-just-test-it-11-600x242

img_7294

Hello lovies!! Tester Tuesday is back in full effect!! This is my second post to the series, I hope you all enjoyed the first one. I really enjoy doing these posts, and I think they are a lot of fun! I love how I get to try, and use up products, trying samples, something new every day, or weekly is so fun, it’s the blogger in me, lol! It seems like you all really liked my last weeks post, they were definitely two good picks. This week, I am bringing you two new products that I am trying out, and these are also good ones! I hope you all like reading my reviews as much as last week, and continue to come back every Tuesday at 9 AM PST to check out what I am testing out for the week! Please let me know if there is something specific you would like to see for Tester Tuesday, if I have it I will gladly do a review the following week, just let me know! I love giving my opinion on products, but hey, we know that, it is why I am a beauty blogger after all! 🙂 Let’s get right into this weeks post, enjoy! 

Today I am testing, and reviewing 2 products, both of which I have never tried before, that is the point though right? lol, I am reviewing the Fresh sugar lip serum advanced therapy, and the glamgldw supreme clearing treatment. You can find these both at Sephora, and other locations as well. I received both of these samples at some point, most likely from sephora. I thought these 2 picks would be a good choice this week, because I don’t know about you but my lips are getting SO chapped, it’s ridiculous, this cold weather has not been good on my skin, or my lips. And, glamglow is always amazing, so I thought I would try a new one this week for my face mask, I thought it would help really draw out my pores, in prep for this cold weather. 

Glamglow: Supermud Clearing Treatment $69

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-9-38-02-pm

What it is:
A skin care mask designed to visibly clear the complexion.

Solutions for:
– Pores
– Acne and blemishes
– Oiliness

If you want to know more…
The SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment was clinically developed to address common skin concerns, which include blemishes, redness, scars, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. The potent mud formula supports skin’s natural oil balance, while a proprietary blend of six acids works to dramatically brighten and soften the complexion. Activated-X charcoal lifts away dirt and other skin congestions, resulting in a refined, healthy-looking complexion.

My Review:

Oh Glamglow you get me every time. I simply love you, I can’t help it! Glamglow is so luxurious, but it really does work. Glamglow has so many good ingredients in it, that it works for so many skin types, and is amazing at cleaning out dirty pores. It really pulls all the dirt out, and truly makes your skin feel incredibly smooth, and clean. This clearing treatment does exactly that, it clears! My skin, and pores feel so much better, and clean. This mask has a skin tightening affect, but it doesn’t get to tight which is good, I love this mask just as much as I enjoy all the glamglow masks I’ve tried. 

Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy $36

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-9-50-14-pm

What it is:
An award-winning lip primer that targets visible signs of aging for the smoothest, softest lips.

Solutions for:
– Fine lines/wrinkles
– Dryness
– Loss of firmness/elasticity

If you want to know more…
Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy is the ultimate age-defying treatment for your lips and lip contour area. This revolutionary product helps to nourish and improve the definition on and around the lips while visibly smoothing fine lines for fuller, younger-looking lips.

My Review: 

Okay, let me first say that normally everything from Fresh I enjoy, and I know it’s a great brand, and always great quality products, but I really didn’t like this product. They claim that it’s a revolutionary product that helps nourish your lips, but why do we really need a lip serum? I honestly don’t understand the concept, I have it on right now as I am tying this, and it’s like there is lotion on my lips, and it dries down to nothing, it’s different, and no really moisturizing either, I defiantly would not purchase a full size, and don’t recommend it, maybe as a night treatment, which I have also tried, and it just rubs off before I even fall asleep, it’s a slippery product, you defiantly can’t eat or drink with it on, which is odd. It does absorb into your lips, but why not just use lip balm? I don’t recommend this, and the scent isn’t horrible, but it’s not good either. I would skip on this product, but will continue to keep trying it to see if if it does any of the claims after several uses, but I haven’t seen those kind of results thus far.

Birchbox November (Why I quit birchbox) Review

img_6858

Hello lovies!! I hope your Saturday is going well, I just wanted to say first, thank you for all the blog love lately, I am trying my best to get back into blogging, and all the support, and love really helps!! I just have to make the commitment again not only with blogging, but all other forms as well, definitely including my youtube channel. I am excited, and it’s going to take some work, but it will be fun! I have lots to get accomplished this weekend, and have some fun blogs coming up for next week as well, so be sure to stop by, and check them out please 🙂 Okay let’s get going on the review this month for November’s birchbox, and why I quit! Yes, you heard that correct, I quit birchbox, no longer subscribed, or I am not renewing my yearly, or monthly any longer. 

Here is what is included in my November birchbox

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-1-52-32-pm

As you can see from the photos it seems like it would be a decent box, but looks can be deceiving unfortunately, and sadly I am very disappointed in this month’s box. The only thing that I was was excited about was the item that I picked this month from my sample choice, which was the Jane Iradale just kissed lip and cheek stain. I love the formula of the stain, but have also received it in one of my birch box’s before. I literally received the smallest samples this month, not what I was expecting, and for the price of $10 per month, I feel like the boxes get worse, and worse. Yes, these are not foil packages, or perfume samples, but I will literally get maybe a few uses out of 3 of the 5 products, very disappointing to say the least. I  feel like sometimes birchbox’s are really good, and filled with great decent sized products, but lately they have been going downhill, and getting worse, and worse. Okay, I know that it sounds like I am really talking negatively about it, but I am letting you know the reasons why I am canceling so you can make your own decision based on my opinions, just trying to help 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I have really loved my birchbox subscription for the past 2 1/2 years, and for the most part, I have enjoyed, and used most of the samples that I received.

Another aspect to why I canceled, and what was my favorite part of birchbox, so it was the most disappointing, is the point system change. See, before you would spend $10 per month on the subscription, and you would review on average 4-5 products, and you would receive 50 points per month, which equals $5 per month, then you can use those points to purchase whatever you would like in the birchbox shop, how great is that? I placed many orders with my points, not having to pay anything, which was hands down the best part to birchbox!! Who wouldn’t love free stuff? Anyways, without the amazing point system they took away a couple months ago, it’s just not worth the $10 per month in my opinion. The samples are not significant enough. Although I will miss aspects to birchbox, for example, the brands, and products that I wouldn’t normally get the chance to try, which has been fun, but for $10 per month, I expect more. I am just disappointed in the sample size, and the change in the points system, so I will not continue being a subscriber to birchbox. 

I would love to hear your opinion on birchbox, and if your a subscriber, and what you received this month if it was different than mine, etc. Like I said I am canceling birchbox, this will be my last birchbox on the blog. Thank you for reading, sorry if I sounded like a negative nancy, just wanted to keep it real with my readers.

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!!!!
