August Glossybox Review And Giveaway! International Competition!

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you the August 2016 Glossybox, and start a new giveaway so that you have a chance to win one for free!  If you do not already know about Glossybox, then please read my main page HERE on it!  I was so excited when I received the August box in the mail because the contents were worth several times the price that I paid for the box, and I really liked the items!  Keep in mind that when you subscribe, you select your preferences and they send you products based on your selections.  So everyone may get some items that are the same, and others will be different based on your beauty profile.  So here is what was in mine this month…

  • Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil– This oil is very effective and smells nice after it is applied to my hair.  Since I have started using this product I have noticed that my hair looks much healthier and smoother!  The oil is great for after using the flat-iron.  It is ideal for all hair types to restore damaged hair.  I will definitely buy more of this when it runs out!  I really like it that much!

  • De Bruyere After Sun Lotion Monoi– This lotion is so amazing!  Not only does it smell heavenly, but it has that signature tropical scent that I love!  The lotion has a thin consistency, but it is very effective for moisturizing dry “sun-kissed skin” I really enjoy the smell and an interesting thing is that one of the ingredients used in this was used in ancient medicine and sacred ceremonies!  How cool!  This is another one that I will buy after this is gone!

  • Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil Waterproof Mascara Dissolver– The name is a mouthful, but this is actually a product I have been waiting for!  My eyes are sensitive so when I remove mascara I want a quick and painless process.  This product does just that!  It is super easy to apply on eyelashes and a few wipes downward is all it takes to remove your mascara with ease!  Thank you Too Faced!  Very handy to have in your purse!

  • Invisibobble The Traceless Hair Ring– I saw this in my Glossybox first and I must admit, I giggled!  It looks like something straight out of the 80’s!  I do have to say that after wearing it though, I was amazed!  It does not kink the hair and leaves it damage-free.  It has a light but firm hold, and caused me fewer headaches than regular hair ties.  Overall, I really like it but I wish it would have come in a black color!

  • Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream– This is a great lipstick!  It has cute artwork on the outside, and has a lovely scent to it!  The color is a peach tone with a matte creamy style.  It is compact and completely 100% cruelty-free!  This is also infused with cocoa butter to moisturize the lips!  Love it!

  • Borghese Brightening Mud Mask For Face And Body– This mud mask is perfect for my skin!  It really leaves my skin feeling refreshed after every use!  The mask has an aloe scent to it and a pink pigment to it as well.  It feels like a mask from a quality spa.  This company also dates back centuries to a princess who created her own beauty product line using ingredients found in Rome!  What a neat history!

So it is pretty obvious that you need to order one!  Normally Glossyboxes come with 5 products, but this one comes with 6 and they are nice ones!  And you can use one of the promo codes below to make the deal even sweeter by getting 3 for the price of 1!  Head over to their website now and get glossy!  You can also enter the giveaway through the link below to have a chance to win a box for free!  And remember glossy-fans, next month is a special edition box that will have special items and beautiful art on the box!  I love to collect them all!  Thank you so much for reading, and for all of your support!

Julep Subscription Beauty Box Review!

Hi everyone!  This was a long wait, but I finally have my update for the Julep Subscription Box!  To do a quick recap, I purchased the subscription with a promo code to receive a free 12pc. nail polish set with the purchase.  I got the nail polish set in May (HERE is that review), then I received my actual subscription box in June, and now I am finally writing about it in July!  I did cancel my subscription, but I still love their full sized products!  So let’s get started!

The box costs around $25, and the value of this one was around $85!  The process after ordering, is to login to your account on or after the 24th of each month and “pick” your box samples.  I honestly did not care for that process too much.  The products that I picked are amazing, and you do not need a monthly subscription to buy them, so that is definitely a plus!  Customer service was nice as well, and they added an extra full sized blush stick to my box for the wait!

So here were my picks…

  • Skip The Brush Blush Cream To Powder Blush Stick In Sheer Glow– The regular price on this item is $24.  I love the stick, but instead of a blush, it works wonderfully as a highlighter with the next item!

  • Nail Polish In Rayma With A Classic Twist– This is a pretty purple color, and the regular price on this item is $11.20.  This applies evenly and dries quickly, but needs a top coat to protect it from chipping.

  • Plie Wand Set– This was a great deal!  The regular price on this item is $35, and you can use this to make any nail art perfect!  Wow!

  • Lip Gloss In Charming– This item regularly costs $16, and it is a pretty color.  It has some shimmer, an is not to sticky!

I hope this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  The products are valuable and worth the trouble, but I prefer my subscription on time, and I like my products to be a surprise as well!  Thank you so much for reading, and make sure to enter our amazing giveaways that are going on right now HERE!

June Glossybox Review And Giveaway! International!

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you the June 2016 Glossybox, and start a new giveaway so that you have a chance to win one for free!  If you do not already know about Glossybox, then please read my main page HERE on it!  As always, I was excited when I received the June box in the mail because the contents were worth several times the price that I paid for the box!  Keep in mind that when you subscribe, you select your preferences and they send you products based on your selections.  So everyone may get some items that are the same, and others will be different based on your beauty profile.  So here is what was in mine this month…

First off, I want to say that I love it when it is a special box like this one!  The boxes themselves are such great quality, and you can re-use them over and over again!  This one is a TONY awards styled box and it is so cute!

 

Icona Milano Emotion Allowed Mascara-  This Italian made product works great when you need a waterproof mascara!  Do not let those waves at the beach or your family day at the pool wash away your charm!  This is a full sized product valued at $19, so that pretty much pays for the whole Glossybox right there!

Lue By Jean Seo Clear-  This powerful spot control liquid fights off the worst of acne blemishes, before they even break the surface of the skin!  I like the fact that it contains 12 natural herbs in the ingredients.  The smell is kind of minty and strong, but it works really well!  This is the full sized product valued at $15.

La Splash Lip Lacquer High Pigment Collection-  This highly pigmented lacquer gives your lips a splash of high-gloss color!  It is thick and sticky, which makes it last a long time.  This is the full sized product valued at $18.

Tantowel Half Body Classic-  These tan towels work wonders, but it is always a good idea to exfoliate before using them.  You can use this on your body and face!  Make sure to wash your hands afterwards!  Color will start to appear 2-4 hours after your application and can last up to 7 days.  There were 2 tan towels in the box, and a full sized product has 10 for $27.

Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce-  This finishing spray is for ultra-firm hold!  For those days when you are on the go, I find this to work much better than my normal hair spray.  I was hoping the smell would be sweeter, but it smells like normal hair spray.  This came with a sample of their dark oil, and when you combine the 2 products, you can let it sit as a hair mask for 10 minutes.  These are both sample sizes.

Caolion Pore Blackhead O2 Sparkling Soap-  This is a wonderful soap when you want to remove your makeup quickly.  It will remove build up oil and impurities with active ingredients of charcoal and cocoa.  This will clean and exfoliate, and it is perfect for when you are on the go!  The scent is very pleasant, and the product is colorful!  This is a sample size.

So it is pretty obvious that you need to order one!  Normally Glossyboxes come with 5 products, but this one comes with 7!  And use one of the promo codes below to make the deal even sweeter!  Head over to their website now and get glossy!  You can also enter the giveaway through the link below to have a chance to win a box for free!  Thank you so much for reading, and for all of your support!

May Glossybox Review And Giveaway! (International)

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you the May 2016 Glossybox, and start a new international giveaway so that you have a chance to win one for free!  If you do not already know about Glossybox, then please read my main page HERE on it!  As always, I was excited when I received this one in the mail and as usual, the contents were worth several times the price that I paid for the box!  They gave a nice variety of products, and as always, I am not disappointed in the least!  Keep in mind that when you subscribe, you select your preferences and they send you products based on your selections.  So everyone may get some items that are the same, and others will be different based on your beauty profile.  So here is what was in mine this month…

Talika Photo-Hydra Day- This is a hydrating moisturizer for your skin, specifically your face.  It utilizes an amino-acid called hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body in smaller amounts and can give your skin a slight glow.  I like the smell and feel of this!

 

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara- I do not use mascara often, but this is a nice product!  The wand does a good job of spreading the lashes and it holds all day.

 

Ritual Cosmetics Shower Foam In Zensation- I really love this shower gel!  It smells amazing and feels really good on my skin.  This foams up like a shaving gel, so no loofah necessary!  No weird residue left over, and it combines organic rice milk with cherry blossom which really makes the skin soft and provides a long-lasting good smell!  The full size is only $15, so I might get one when this smaller size runs out!

 

Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme- This is supposed to be paired with their advanced night repair serum, but can be used by itself.  Helps with fine lines, dullness, and dehydration.  I would not normally buy this, but I am glad I have a sample to use, because it is a premium anti-aging cream!

 

Nioxin System 1 Cleanser And Scalp Therapy Conditioner- This is an amazing set of products from Nioxin!  The set helps to balance moisture levels, and smells very herbal like fresh mint.  This is extremely refreshing and tingling on your scalp which feels good!  I do not enjoy mint smells everyday, but once in a while I will use this to start my day fresh and tingly!

So it is pretty obvious that you need to order one!  Normally there is 5 products, but this one has 6!  And use the promo codes below to get 7 or save 15%!  Or pick the buy one get one free promo!  Head over to their website now and get glossy!  Or enter the giveaway through the link below to have a chance to win a box for free!  Thanks for reading, and for all of your support!

Julep Nail Polish 12 Piece Set Review!

Hi everyone!  So I had decided that I wanted to try a Julep subscription recently, mostly because they had an amazing promo code to receive a free set of 12 nail polishes with a monthly subscription!  Today I am going to share with you my experiences with the company and their products so far.  This is a short post so let’s get started!

I did receive the 12 nail polishes as a free gift, and I absolutely love every color!  These vegan-friendly beauty polishes will go with any look, all year round!  I am still waiting to receive my actual monthly box, so I will update you later on those products, but this alone was well worth the price of the box!

 

The way the subscription works is a bit confusing, and it requires you to log in each month to manually select which products you would like.  The box arrives during the last week of the month typically.  I do love the products, but I do not care for the way that the business is structured, and it seems like a hassle to log in each month.  I must not be the only one that feels this way, because there are others with similar feedback.

 

Glossybox is much easier and I love being surprised monthly!  So I will probably discontinue my subscription, but I may give them another month to impress me.  Thank you so much for reading!

Mother’s Day Glossybox Review!

Hi everyone!  Happy Belated Mother’s Day!  I was busy having a great time with family so I am making this post quite late.  Sorry about that!  I really wanted to share this amazing gift I received though… The Mother’s Day Glossybox!  I am so lucky to have gotten one, because the specialty boxes usually sell out very quickly!  The box contained 6 full sized products, wow!  Here is a look at what was in mine!

Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray- If you are a beach babe, then this is the hair product you have been looking for!  A few sprays of this light coconut scented product, and you will have those effortless beach waves in your hair without all the crunchy hair spray feeling!  With the price only being around $25, it is a must have for all beach bums!

 

Lauren B. Beauty Gel-Like Top Coat- Do you like long lasting, chip-free nails?  Of course you do!  So invest in a bottle of this amazing top coat.  It is eco-friendly, and is even a suitable choice for those who are focused on vegan products.  Do away with that UV light and drying acetone, and grab a bottle of this top coat for less than $30!

 

Bare Minerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam- This great face cleanser is by a very trusted brand!  I was so excited to receive this in my box!  It is infused with rosemary and elderflower which smells great, and leaves my face feeling super fresh!  The cost for a full size is around $20 and is totally worth it!

 

Laura Geller Baked Blush N Brighten Tropic Hues- I love this blush!  I have had so many compliments on how my makeup looks professionally done due to this blush!  It is created by baking swirls of coral pink and bronze for 24 hours on terra cotta tiles, and it is beautifully placed in a compact with a mirror for touch ups on the go!  This is a great addition to have in your beauty arsenal for under $30!

 

Karity 5 Shadow Palette- This is a limited edition product that is created only for Glossyboxes, and is valued at a little over $20!  It features 5 highly pigmented eye shadows, matte and shimmery shades included!  You can create any fancy look you want with this, all year long!

 

Doucce Click-Click Lipstick- This lipstick is a berry-hued color that soothes and protects your lips, while giving a stunning look!  This bright and bold color gives a beautiful, classic look that reminds me of Marilyn Monroe!

Thank you for reading everyone!  Here are some promo codes to help you get a great deal on your Glossybox today!  So head over to their website HERE and get one now!  Or enter the giveaway through the link on the May Glossybox review for your chance to win a free one!

Norell New York Eau Da Parfum- I absolutely fell in love with this fragrance!  With hints of mandarin, jasmine, bergamot, vanilla, and sandalwood, this is the scent for an elegant occasion.  Very classy!

Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner- This brow lift pencil is great!  It works like a charm and the best part is that 100% of the profit goes to the “Look Good, Feel Better” charity, which supports women with cancer!  I love to buy great products from companies that care!

Biossance The Nourisher, Precious Rose Face Oil- With a rose scented face oil, this product smells great and has vitamin C.  It repairs skin and leaves it feeling soft.

Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask- This is a hydrating mask that also has protective properties.  The scent is so sweet smelling, and I seriously love this!  It has now become part of my weekly beauty routine, and I use it 2 times a week!

Leighton Denny Expert Nails Nail Polish Pillow Talk- This is a great nail polish!  I love the color because it is sophisticated, and it glides on smooth with a professional style brush.  It also dries quickly, and has a glossy finish.  With the price of $19 it is a great deal for a long lasting polish!
