Birchbox! August 2012

Birchbox! August 2012

I should probably post my August Birchbox before my September one gets here! This month was all about everyday beauty essentials and fall trends with a “back to school” vibe.

Cravebox! May 2012

Cravebox is BACK! They took a little hiatus in April and I missed them oh so much. May’s Cravebox is dubiously themed “A Taste of the Tropics” and it was sincerely worth the wait.

The Look Bag! March, April & May 2012

The Look Bag! March, April & May 2012

Okay, so I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with The Look Bag. My March bag was so uninteresting that I didn’t even bother to blog about it. The April bag was admittedly better, but not amazing. Thankfully, the May Look bag has redeemed this subscription back to blog-worthy status.

Birchbox! May 2012

Better late than never :) May’s Birchbox was a Gossip Girl themed box. Other than the fact that it came wrapped in a cute little Gossip Girl cardboard  sleeve, I didn’t notice any other correlation tying into the theme. Then again, I’ve never watched Gossip Girl lol.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.
