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

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! […]

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

Box #8: [Video] Testtube Beauty Unboxing and 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 […]

Box 7: [Video] Glossybox Unboxing & First Impression

Box 7: [Video] Glossybox Unboxing and 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….

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing & First Impression

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing and 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 […]

Box #3: [Video] October BeautyDNA Unboxing

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 […]

Box #5 [Video] Boxycharm Unboxing &First Impression

Box #5 [Video] Boxycharm Unboxing and 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 […]

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

Box #4: Beauty Box 5 (BB5) Unboxing and 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 […]

Box #3: BeautyDNA Unboxing & First Impression

Box #3: BeautyDNA Unboxing and First Impression O.M.G. Getting boxes in the mail is the best 🙂 I’m going to be really sad when this project ends. At the end of this adventure, I will be subscribing to a minimum of one box per month for at least six months — but probably a year. […]
