Birchbox Man Unboxing – A Home Run or Foul Ball?

Birchbox Man Unboxing – A Home Run or Foul Ball? I get a ton of messages from men asking on ways they can up their skincare regime or even apply manly makeup to conceal shine or scars. I wish I were an expert on men’s skincare but I’m not… so I look to my dad […]

My $100 Summer Box of Style Unboxing and Details

My $100 Summer Box of Style Unboxing and Details If you saw my Spring post/video (see here), you might’ve noticed that I wasn’t HUGELY impressed. I wasn’t too fond of the earbuds, although I have used them a few times. I also haven’t used even one of the oil blotting sheets. Paper towels are so […]

[Video] FabFitFun Unboxing: Fabulous or A Flop?

[Video] FabFitFun Unboxing: Fabulous or A Flop? Ok, ok. This box was one of those, “Are you trying the FabFitFun as part of your unboxing series?” boxes. So many people had asked if I’ve unboxed a FFF that I felt obliged to give it a try after running upon an oh-so-convenient 50% promo code through a […]

Box #6: A {Bonus} Birchbox Unboxing!

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, […]

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 #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 #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.

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. […]
