Make sure to show Alexanna some love & share this post and leave comments below. If you’d like to read any of her other posts, I’d first recommend her great insight […]

The Results Are In… My Beauty Box Subscription Dilemma, No More!

As part of the Beauty Box Subscription Dilemma series, I unboxed some of the most popular beauty subscription box services out there! When I launched the project, I listed the boxes I would be reviewing. Unfortunately, I did not get to all of them! I did unbox some boxes that were not on my original […]

Box #6: A {Bonus} Birchbox Unboxing!

I won’t lie, this Birchbox definately fit “me” a little better than the first one, not that I didn’t like the first one (see here). The products in this box were more in line with my beauty needs and wants 🙂 Check out my second unboxing below and remember, if you’ve been considering Birchbox, use […]

Box #8: [Video] Testtube Beauty Unboxing & First Impression

Alas, I have made it to Testtube Beauty. At $30/box or shall I say, “tube,” this is the priciest subscription service of the bunch. However, this isn’t a monthly box…you receive your tube every two month, so that averages to about $15/month. Is it worth the $$? You be the judge!

Box 7: [Video] Glossybox Unboxing & First Impression

I can’t believe this is my second to last box to unbox with you! I must say, this project has been extremely helpful and the feedback I’ve received from everyone has been great! I’m so excited to talk about and/or refer clients and friends to different boxes…. Glossybox was the one box that I’ve been […]

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing & First Impression

Ok, so finally Birchbox. Like ipsy, Birchbox has a huge following. They are the matriarch of the beauty box subscription service! Receiving one box from them is not necessarily going to be as worthwhile as becoming a long-term subscriber. Birchbox is supposed to match smarter with time based on reviews and feedback. Here’s my very […]

Box #3: [Video] October BeautyDNA Unboxing

BeautyDNA nailed it, again! They matched me with an awesome product that I can really use and benefit from. I’m still testing out my product from my first BeautyDNA box (watch here/read my previous BeautyDNA Boxhere). Again, I am really grateful that that BeautyDNA donated three boxes, or should I say three months worth of […]

Box #5 [Video] Boxycharm Unboxing &First Impression

First of all, I want to apologize in the delay in getting this video/blog post up! It’s been a crazy time for myself, our family… I’m sure you can understand. With that being said Boxycharm is awesome! It’s a bit pricier than ipsy, BB5, Birchbox (upcoming) but at $21/box and five full sized {LUXURY} products, […]

Box #4: Beauty Box 5 (BB5) Unboxing & First Impression

My 4th unboxing in my “Beauty Box Dilemma” series! Beauty Box 5 (BB5) is a $12/month subscription box which contains 5 samples, although these “samples” are are far larger than I anticipated. What a great box! The Verdict on Beauty Box 5 O.M.G. Let me just tell you how impressed I am with this box! […]
