Blush BOX Review June

Blush MysteryBeauty Box III Price: $24.95 a month ($34.95 one time) This box is advertised as containing $100 worth of beauty products.

JewelMint Mystery Box Summer 2013

Jewelmint is a subscription site that allows you to purchase pieces and sometimes offers MYSTERY BOXES!! Currently they have boxes available starting from $29.99 to $49.99. 

The way it works is that once you make a purchase on their site, it considers you a subscriber so you will be charged $29.99 if you do not cancel, purchase, or skip between the 1st and the 5th of the month. If you forget you will be charged and given 1 "credit" which is worth 29.99 towards your next purchase. I recommend just setting yourself a monthly reminder on your calendar if you make a purchase so you remember to skip if that is what you want to do. Otherwise you can also cancel if it is not working out for you. I purchased the 8-piece Summer Mystery Box and am really excited for it to arrive. YAY.

Ipsy Review June

Right now Ipsy is one of my favorite subscriptions. They always have fun, new, and exciting products and I am really happy that I subscribed. Also at $10/mo they are a very affordable splurge. Basically as long as you like 1 out of the 5 items its worth it. Here is what I got in June:

HauteLook & Nordstrom Summer Beauty Bag

Green Grab Bag June Unboxing and Review Part 1 & 2

Green Grab Bag sent me one of their surprise boxes to size up and I am super excited to do this review. If you have not heard of them, Green Grab Bag is a sample subscription that lets you choose between building your own box and being surprised. With the surprise box you receive 6 samples for $15. In the custom box there are 3 levels ranging from $15, $25, and $35 depending on the number of samples you select. The products are vegan or organic and are often cruelty free which I LOVE. Save the bunnies:)

Birchbox Review June

 Birchbox is often regarded as on of the first beauty subscription boxes. At well over 100k monthly subscribers they are quite popular. I have even heard of people having 2 or 3 subscriptions. Apparently you fill out a survey and their stylist match the box to your survey results. Thus why people like to try multiple subscriptions to try different survey answers and see their results.
 The Women’s Subscription is $10/month which is one of the cheaper subscriptions on the market. Currently there is a estimated four week waiting list to sign up.

Last month I was pretty upset with my box. You can find that review here: MAY

However, this month is FANTASTIC I am happy and birch box will live another day in  my mailbox.

$5 Target Sample Box June 2013

 The Target beauty box was a one off offering to the first 20,000 purchasers. There may be more boxes in the future but that is still to be determined. Many people were complaining since there were similar free bags in the past but I am quite happy with what I received. Also I feel this box is a much higher value than the free bags were but both are fun.

Influenster sent me the above box to review. Thanks Influenster!
The NYC lip balm is amazing! Love it.

Beauty Army Review June

 I have to say I had my doubts about Beauty Army at first. But I was mistaken. I love that you can pick your own samples and I love that you can skip any month you are not loving.

NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm

I received a FREE yup free product to try through Influenster. Through the site you fill out surveys and then get products to try and test based on your interests. Post in the comments below if you want to be my friend on their site and are interest in more information.

I really liked the NYC Applelicious Lip Gloss/Balm. It is hydrating like most lip balms but has the look of a lip gloss or even a lipstick! I like how it is multi colored so if you want a lighter color you can use the center and the outer color is more red. The smell is nice but it is not overpowering.

Use it or Lose it May

Use it or Lose- Stuff I love I tend to use up vs if I am not feeling a product I might learn to love it later so I put it way and try again another day.  Some stuff I plain hate and will give it away in a giveaway in case its just not my particular taste and some stuff I throw away if they are defective or beyond gift-able.

Beauty Fix Review and June Price Guide

The bag: $49.99 pick 8 items + free bag and then they ship to you **

I love the beauty fix box and I think it’s perfect for first box to try if you have never purchased sample boxes because you get to pick what you get. There really is a wide variety in options when you are picking out your box so I thought I would help and list out the values and ratio to the full size item. I don’t know about you but I have a hard time knowing if .1 fl oz is a good sample or not. As you probably know it really varies based on the type of item. Eye creams tend to be tiny vs a shampoo or hair spray sample. So to help you out I looked up the full size amount for all of the current offerings in the beauty fix box and compared them to the full size. Hope this helps. So what did I find out? If you want the highest dollar value box it comes in at a total of $329.09. Not bad for $49.99!
