Birchbox July 2013

Hi Darlings!
Birchbox yay! See my unboxing video here: I feel sorta "meh" about the box this month. I liked last months box a lot better so hopefully next month will be a good one!


Sorry the lighting is so bad. I took the pictures under artificial light and it didn't work so well.

100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream

 I did try one these samples and it was ok. I really didn't care for the smell because it smelled a lot like jollyranchers to me. Other then that the formula is really nice. The sample is worth about $3.50.

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

I was really excited to see this in the box! My only complaint is that its such a small sample! Our sample is valued at $1.75. Other then that though, I really do love benefit, all of their products are amazing.

Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect

This doesn't say how much is in it so I can't calculate the price so I will guess around $5. I haven not found a leave in conditioner that I really like yet so I am so happy to try the new one. However, I am a little scared too because of the smell. It smells like berries and not in a good way. So, if you have used this and had a good experience let me know in the comments.

G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream

I haven't tried this and I really don't know if I'm going too I am really tired of skin care stuff! Our sample is worth $4.

Bobby Pins

I am kinda annoyed that they didn't send us a full set of bobby pins (6) Last month I received 12 nail files that I will never use, but bobby pins that I love they only send 2 of. Sample is worth just under $2. They are cute though. 


In the end this month's box is a miss for me. The total value is only $16.25. Hopefully next month will be better.


Sample Society July 2013

Hey Darlings,
     Sample society is here.... I'm not happy. Actually, I've cancelled my subscription. I'll tell you why at the end. Check out my unboxing here:


Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Private Dancer

I really love this color and as pretty as the photo is it really doesn't do it justice. I haven't heard of this brand before but this retails for $19! I don't know about you but I doubt I would ever spend that much on a nail polish so I hope this lasts a long time.

Dr. T's Supergoop Advanced anti-aging Eye Cream

I haven't tried this yet but I am excited that I received it after getting the full size sunscreen in the same brand in my Pop Sugar box. This little sample is still worth $6 though.

Tres Pure Face Tonic

I would never ever in a million years use this on my face! It smells so bad just opening the cap makes me gag. I was going to gift this but I think I am going to throw it out! I wouldn't want someone to think I hate them because I gave them this. Retail on this is $5.50.

T by Terry Cellularose Brightening Serum

So So So tired of the skin care stuff. Won't use this. Again it has a really awful smell. Not as bad as the last one. But not good. Amazingly, our sample is worth $15.50

Reem Acra Eau De Parfum

Number one, I hate perfume samples like this!! Number two, this smells awful. Sample is worth around $3.


All in all the box has a value of $50. But there is only one item that I would use. I am really done with skin care stuff, so I've cancelled my subscription to this one.

Pop Sugar Must Have July 2013

Hey dolls,
      I got my pop sugar box today and I'm so happy. I think Pop Sugar is one of my favorite boxes and this one is no exception!! Here is my unboxing video: and other than that lets get right to the awesomeness!!

The Stuff

NCLA Nail Polish in As If!

I love this nail polish!! Its so cute and is so perfect for summer! It's also a really great formula and I got really good coverage with only one coat! This is valued at $16 and I will totally be buying this in more colors! The only negative thing I have to say about it is that the brush isn't 100% aligned with the square top, so it makes it awkward to hold. But the quality of the polish is so great that I really don't care too much.

Hannahmax Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip All Natural Crunchy Cookie Chips

These are so delicious!!! I ate the whole bag within the first day that I had it. I really wanna try the other flavors too. The retail price is $6.

Tovolo King Cube Ice Tray

This is so cool! This makes 2 inch ice squares and are perfect for summer! The price for this is $8.50 and I really love it, I may buy another one.

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea

What better thing to go with an ice cube tray than Iced tea! This is in the flavor Ginger Peach and I cannot wait to try it! I really love iced tea so this is really great for me and perfect for summer! There are 4 bags in the box and each makes 1/2 gallon of tea. Also I wanna point out that the bags are whole leaves and a much nicer consistency then the paper bags that most tea comes in. The retail price is $6.25 which is a pretty good price in my opinion.

Supergoop! SPF 20 Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum

First of all this sunscreen is $42 and that is way more then I would every pay for a sunscreen. That being said, I really do enjoy this product. I also want to give points to Pop Sugar because Supergoop makes a travel size of this item, and that is not what we got, this is the full size product.

Baublebar Rose Double Curb Chain

I LOVE this item. There is nothing about it I don't love. It's in rose gold and is really beautiful. Baublebar also included and 20% off coupon which I have already used. I know a lot of people were complaining about the necklace and saying they didn't like it but I really love it. I couldn't find this necklace on their website but the value is around $30. And my coupon saved me $4.50.


I loved everything in this box and I am so happy with it! The total value is $113.25 and the box is only $35. I highly recommend this box!!!

Glossybox June 2013

Hi Loves!
     Sorry this is up so late. I was on vacation for a while so I didn't have a chance to blog. But that's only half the reason this is late. I didn't get my glossybox until July 5th. I really hate getting my June box in July. I know that they had some issues this month and the boxes got sent out late, but for me that's no excuses because my box was late last month too. I am also not happy with the products I've received at all! The box is $21 a month and I really don't think that its worth it. So I've canceled it. You can see me rant more and the unboxing here:

The Box

 The Stuff

Sparitual Polish in Solitude

 In the picture the color looks better then it does in regular lite. In the natural light you can actually see the purple color in the polish, but indoors the color looks like a dark brown and is not cute at all! I really hate this color. Other then the color the formula is amazing though, it only took two coats to get this color and it went on really well. However, it doesn't dry very fast so be prepared to wait a while in between coats. This is a full size product and is valued at $12. I will most likely purchase another product from this company, just not in this color.
P.S. sorry my nails look so stubby here I broke 3 of them on  vacation. :(

C. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist

First of all I want to say that I have never tried a product like this so I really don't have anything to compare it too. But I really didn't care for this product. I didn't feel like it made my skin glow and it didn't feel nourishing. The only good side I saw was that it smelled pretty good. This is half of a full size so the value is $4.

Tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick

I was unsure at first if this is a full size as it seems a little smaller then a normal lipstick. However, it is in fact a full size and the value is $14.50. I think I would have been happier with this product of glossybox had sent me the correct color for my complexion. I received this item in the "medium to tan" color when the "light to medium" would have been much more appropriate. That being said I do like the lipstick. Its very pretty and it does make my lips feel softer.

Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries

This is the way to go if you're going to send perfume samples! My favorite is Mi Corazon! This sample is worth around $6 ( I think???) But it is not something that I would repurchase for myself.

Philip B  Light Weight Deep Conditioning Creme Rinse

I tried this product out and left it in my hair four about 5 minuets, and I really didn't notice a difference at all. Also my hair is about two inches below my shoulders and it took half the bottle to get it though my hair. Normally I would be okay with this because it's a sample..... But this is a FULL SIZE product! and it costs $10!!! That is just crazy! For a full size product to take half the bottle is a waste of money, not to mention I didn't notice a difference in my hair! I will use the rest of the bottle and leave it in the full 20 mins to see if that helps, but I would not ever repurchase this.


The total value of the box is $41.50. It could have been better. I'm just happy that I've canceled.
