Birchbox! February 2012

Woohoo! February was a great month to be a Birchbox subscriber. By the way, holy crap, I actually got my Birchbox before the end of the month!!! This is the quickest I’ve ever received it, and it’s all thanks to Birchbox dropping Streamlite and switching to UPS. Stellar move :)

Birchbox! January 2012

I’m posting this late, but I received my January Birchbox early last week. I thought it was a pretty sweet box to kick off the new year!

Cravebox! December 2011

As if Birchbox, GoGoGirlfriend, Julep & the New Beauty Test Tube weren’t enough, I’ve added Cravebox to my arsenal of beauty sampler subscriptions. What I like about Cravebox is that it’s not limited to just beauty stuff. They include food and home products as well, pretty much anything that is “crave-worthy”. The very first Cravebox shipment, the December “Holiday Pamper Me Box” contained a little mix of everything!

Birchbox! December 2011

My December Birchbox came this week! Oh happy times :) This month included six samples (yay!) and surprisingly, I loved them ALL! I think the star of this month was my Benefit POREfessional sample. It reminds me a lot of  Clinique’s Pore Minimizer, except POREfessional doesn’t clump or adversely react to other facial products like Clinique’s does.

Birchbox! November 2011

November’s Birchbox has arrived (finally) lol. This month they included a pretty little surprise! It’s called the BaubleBar Black Wood Pop Bracelet. The first 10,000 subscribers with the most Birchbox points received one. It sells for $20 from baublebar.com so it was definitely a nice little treat to receive :)

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

9 Oct

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

Admittedly, I’m pretty obsessed with these monthly sample subscription services. GoGoGirlfriend is the newest service that I joined (thanks to K, one of my awesome commenters for the recommendation!) and so far I am definitely impressed. My last 2 Birchbox shipments have been a little underwhelming, so GoGoGirlfriend has been a refreshing element thrown into my mix of monthlys! The three I subscribe to are: the Beauty Test Tube, Birchbox and GoGoGirlfriend.

Birchbox! September 2011

Birchbox! September 2011

I finally received my Birchbox in the mail yesterday. It’s so frustrating when you live on the west coast and have to wait for stuff to ship from the east coast! It takes soooo long. And Birchbox unfortunately uses Streamlite, which is the worst shipping service EVER. If USPS takes 3 days to ship a package, Streamlite will take 9 days. I hate them if you couldn’t tell lol.

But annnnyways.. moving on :) This is Birchbox’s one year anniversay box. It was highly anticipated (as usual) and I like almost everything I received, but I admit it was a little underwhelming for an anniversary edition. I think Birchbox needs to either throw in a full size bonus item or more deluxe sized items soon to keep subscribers happy. I’m really not thrilled about getting a vial of perfume considering you can get free perfume samples all over the place.

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

I’m kind of a gloss addict. If any particular lip gloss brand or product is buzzing around the beauty world, I have this alien-like radar that sounds off in my brain until I go scope it out. This was pretty much the case when I bought the Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss last week. I kept seeing this brand get name dropped in youtube videos and blogs, THEN Birchbox had to go and include it in one of their monthly boxes. I didn’t get it in my box, but Birchbox was shipping this product for free. And I had 100 Birchbox points to use ($10), AND there was a 20% off Birchbox coupon floating around… so I ended up getting this $20 lip gloss for $6, shipped. Cuz that’s how I roll.
