May 2013 Birchbox Review

I’m weeks behind on my May Birchbox review because I was trying to catch up with all of the Baby Watch posts (which I’m behind on again…). Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a box with 4-5 generous samples including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care. There’s […]

December Birchbox Review

The December Birchbox wasn’t wonderful.  Things didn’t seem very tailored to me and I received too many lotion-type problems.  Some months are better than others, so it’s no big deal. Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a box with 4-5 generous samples including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and […]

November Birchbox Review

The November Birchbox was my favorite Birchbox so far. Everything is useful and some of the stuff is downright awesome!  A 3, 6, or 12 month Birchbox gift subscription would be a great gift for a friend or sister who loves beauty and trying new products! Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  […]

October Julep Maven Review

I skipped the Julep Maven box for August and September, but I forgot to skip my October box too, once I got the email preview.  The colors weren’t bad, but I wasn’t dying for them. Julep is a boutique nail salon that offers a monthly subscription box for $19.99.  When you sign up, you take a […]

October Birchbox Review

The October Birchbox was sponsored by goop, which is a lifestyle resource created by Gwyneth Paltrow.  I had the option of getting a goop birchbox or a regular box, and I thought it would be fun to get the goop one. Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a […]

October Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Ipsy Glam Bag (formally MyGlam) is a beauty subscription program in which you receive 4-5 full-size or deluxe beauty products in a little cosmetic bag for $10 per  month.  When you sign up, you take a quiz so they can customize your Glam bag, but I don’t feel like things are very well customized for […]

September Birchbox Review

The September Birchbox theme was Fall Fashion, which seemed quite appropriate, though the products don’t really fit the theme.  I think the spf beauty balm and the bright blue polish were more spring or summer options, but maybe that just because fall got cold pretty quickly in Ohio compared to some years. Birchbox is a monthly […]

August Birchbox Review

The August Birchbox theme was Beauty School, which I didn’t really get except there was a little booklet with beauty tips.  I’m still pretty happy with this service and feel like it’s worth the $10, though I’ll probably take a break soon because I need to do a better job at using things up before […]

Sparitual Disco Inferno Polish

I bought this nail polish at Earth Fare when it was on sale.  It’s DBP, Formaldehyde, and Toluene Free.  I thought it had some weird name that I couldn’t pronounce and then weeks later I noticed that’s it’s just Spa Ritual, but the words are combined as SPARITUAL.  Duh.  Anyway, this wasn’t the longest lasting […]
