Beauty Army Kit! April 2012

Beauty Army Kit! April 2012

I received my beloved Beauty Army kit last week. I was very pleased with the selection of items this month! And Beauty Army just implemented a new feature: Skip A Month. If none of their samples interest you in any given month, or if you’re strapped for cash, you can skip without cancelling your entire account. This is a feature that Julep has had since day one and it’s always been something I wish all subscription services had. Way to go Beauty Army :)

MyGlam Bag! April 2012

MyGlam Bag! April 2012

I am surprisingly happy with MyGlam this month! April’s Glam bag is definitely an improvement from March’s bag. All of the items are fun and makeup-related. Most importantly, there was NO skincare stuff! Woot! I don’t know about you, but I’m all skincare’d out.

Birchbox! April 2012

It’s the best time of the month again: Birchbox time! However, April’s Birchbox is not my favorite box by a mile.

Julep! April 2012

Out of every subscription service that I have, Julep blows them ALL away when it comes to shipping. It’s not even April yet, but I already received my April Julep Maven box :) BEST JULEP BOX EVER BY THE WAY. The swatches did NO justice to these colors. They are effing GORGE!

Cravebox! March 2012

Cravebox! March 2012

This is officially my FAVORITE Cravebox to date! I am one of their “original gangstas” since I’ve been subscribed to Cravebox throughout their entire beta period. And so far, I have been happy with every single box that I’ve received. If you’re a monthly box subscription addict like me then you know how rare it is to find a service that keeps you consistently satisfied.  I can honestly say that Cravebox has done that for me. I think a big part of it is the variety of products that they send. It’s not just beauty, or just organics, or just nail polish. It’s an eclectic combination of awesome stuff that I’d never think to try had I not received it in my Cravebox!

MyGlam Bag! March 2012

This month’s MyGlam bag was my least favorite out of the three that I’ve gotten so far. Aside from the fact that the bag and products came out of my mailbox with an atrocious odor, most of the products didn’t “wow” me too much.

Sample Society! March 2012

Sample Society! March 2012

I received my first Sample Society shipment this week. What is Sample Society, you ask? It’s a brand new monthly beauty sampler service. What made this service stand out to me was the fact that it’s partnered with Allure Magazine.  With Allure’s name on the line, I expect some stellar products to be inside these boxes. It’s the most expensive monthly subscription I belong to at $15 per month, but if the products are worth it, I’ll be happy. March was the launch of the service and membership is currently wait-listed.

Beauty Army Kit! March 2012

Beauty Army has quickly become one of my top 3 monthly subscription beauty boxes. They have great customer service, they ship promptly, your samples come in the most ADORABLE reusable box, and you get to pick your own samples. This is my third shipment from Beauty Army and I’ve been pretty happy with all of my samples so far.

Birchbox! March 2012 (Teen Vogue Edition)

This month Birchbox spiced things up a bit. They gave subscribers an option to either receive their normal Birchbox or opt in to receive a special “Teen Vogue” edition box for March. I decided to see what the Teen Vogue edition had to offer.

Julep! March 2012

WOW, super impressed with the speedy shipping of my Julep box this month. I actually received my March box on February 29th :) what a refreshing change to receive a monthly box early, haha. I chose the American Beauty box this month which included Kelly (a milky pale nude pink), Emma (a shimmering frosty pink) and a generously sized bottle of pure Argan Oil.
