Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox

Hello friends!

It is so hot outside I felt like I was melting when I walked outside and you could just feel the moisture in the air, It’s disgusting today.. Living on the East Coast the heat/humidity is redic. I will be blasting the AC and drinking a lot of ice water today. Kudos to those that don’t have AC or have to work outside in the summer, like my mail carrier!  I love her, but I don’t think the feeling is mutual because of the amount of boxes and packages I get delivered.

My Sunkissed VoxBox finally made it’s way to my mailbox! I did not receive any shipping confirmation but I was definitely pleasantly surprised! This is my first VoxBox and I have been registered with Influenster.com since February 2013. This was completely FREE and you can find out more about Influenster Here .

julep destination mystery box June 2013

I was kind of disappointed with my first Julep Mystery boxes for June. I ended up ordering two of the three available and I’m relieved I saved $24.95 and didn’t buy the third box.  I ordered the Miami Destination box and the Laguna Destination box (the third box was the Hamptons Destination box). There are different versions of each box which can range from $70-200. Each of my boxes were both valued at the lower end of $70.

Mystery boxes come out after the monthly subscription boxes are shipped. Monthly subscriptions are $19.99 a month and right now you can use the PROMO CODE : Freemaven or Freebox to get your first box free at Julep.com . Mystery boxes are not a monthly plan and you can buy them without a subscription to Julep. The destination mystery boxes are now sold out.

I’ll start with the Miami box, which came in a bigger box than the Laguna box. I was so excited when the package came and that excitement was kind of deflated when I opened the box. The colors are great so I really can’t complain too much. I was excited because I had checked out previous Mystery boxes and most of them looked like a great value.

Here’s what I got in my Julep Miami Mystery box version #3:

Paris– Multidimensional holographic glitter top coat

Lauren– A hot tropical pink crème.

Isla–  A Soft milky-white metallic.

Dry Clean Invisible Dry Shampoo- $22 (Without the maven discount)

Strawberry mint lip balm – $6 (no longer available on the Julep site)

photo (16)

Swatches of Lauren, Isla, Paris :

photo (19)

 

The value of the box, without the discount makes it exactly $70

I tried the Dry shampoo and there is NO WAY I would pay $22 for this product. I prefer “Not your mother’s dry shampoo a lot better (and it’s only $5-6). I didn’t notice any extra volume or texture with the Julep Dry shampoo. I was really excited about using it too.

I loved the Nail polish colors. I think I would rather pay the $7-$8 and just pick out my own polishes in the store.  Paris was my favorite out of the three in this box.

The Strawberry –Mint Lip balm was a nice treat. The smell is delicious and I have already used it a bunch on my lips. I can tell it’s not going to last very long because it almost melts onto your lips and a lot of product comes off when you use it.

Out of the two boxes the Miami box was my favorite.

Now on to the Julep Laguna Mystery box;  I’ll start by saying that out of all of the Julep polishes they could’ve sent me as a duplicate- They sent me my least-favorite polish of ALL TIME, Abbie. If you read my posts you’ll know that I got Abbie in my first intro box in May. I was excited to find the perfect yellow summer polish UNTIL I took off the polish and to my horror MY FINGER NAILS WERE STAINED A DISGUSTING YELLOW COLOR! They are still yellow, a month later. I’m so embarrassed when my polish chips and have had to explain it to co-workers why so they know that it’s not some crazy fungus on my nails. It’s partially my fault for not using a base coat, but still. So my exact thought when I opened my box was “Really, Julep? You seriously sent me this??”Rather than give this away I might throw it away, I haven’t decided yet.  Maybe it was just my nails that it happened to. I still really hate Abbie and want everyone to hear me vent!  Ok now that my vent is done, on to the box!

Here’s what I got in the Laguna mystery box version #5:

Julep Laguna Destination Mystery box

Cody – Cantaloupe orange crème $14

Fiona – Electric lime neon green crème $14

Abbie – Sunshine yellow crème$14

Glycolic hand scrub- $23 (Out of stock on the Julep site)

Strawberry mint lip balm – $6 (no longer available on the Julep site)

 swatches of Fiona, Cody, and Abbie:

The lovely Strawberry-Mint Lip Balm

strawberry-mintl ip balm

 The texture of the Gylcolic hand scrub:

photo (21)

Value for the Laguna box without the Maven discount: $71

I did not like the smell of the hand scrub at all. It’s very floral and I’m more of a citrus girl myself. If floral is your thing though, this is the perfect hand scrub for you. I loved that it made my hands super-soft after one use, but I can’t get past the floral smell. I might be giving this to my sister.

I liked 2 out of the three nail polishes in this box. Fiona and Cody are nice colors and I’m actually wearing Fiona right now.

The final Verdict: Julep Destination Mystery boxes get 3 stars out of 5. I don’t think I will be getting another mystery box for a while. I paid $50.00 for both boxes and I don’t think I got an outstanding deal. Sure both boxes were valued at $144 and I only paid $50, but half of the items I got, I will not end up using.

Julep said that if you ordered one of each of the boxes there were no chances that there would be any duplicates, but I got another Strawberry-Mint lip balm. No complaints here, I actually gave the extra one to my sister and she loves it. I feel like they were just trying to get rid of some old products and didn’t really plan these out as much as I thought they were going to be. I think I might skip next month’s monthly box, but I haven’t decided yet. Maybe I was being a little hard on this mystery box, but no sugarcoating here! Just thought I’d write exactly how I feel.

Did you get a box? What did you think of June’s mystery boxes?

Glossybox June 2013 confirmed spoilers

I just recently found out what’s going to be in June’s “American Beauty” Glossybox! Glossybox collaborated with fashion illustrator/it-girl, Dallas Shaw this month and I’m really excited for this box to get to make it’s way to my mail box.

Here’s what will be in the June American Beauty Glossy box via Dallas Shaw’s Blog

glossybox arew

It looks fabulous! I love that she designed the box and there will even be an illustration in the box to enjoy!

-13

On the Glossybox website it said my box had an estimated delivery for today, June 19th but with some apparent issues with one of the products they were going to feature, I received this email from Glossybox on June 17th:

photo (7)

On Dallas Shaw’s Blog  She had this to say:
“I would like to share a small change in the collaboration with my followers, fans and friends. When the nail company we originally planned to include defaulted on their plan to provide the polish, we decided to replace it with a different product on my love list (one that has also been personally chosen by me and which I feel confident that you’ll enjoy). I apologize for any confusion this caused subscribers and I thank you for the amazing faith you always placed in me and my brand.”

Regardless, I think I will order some of the Bondi nail polish because they seem like a great company and I’m really curious about their products. They’re a fairly new company and from the website they seem to have a great selection of products! I love that the names of the nail polishes are New York themed.

I’m also happy that I picked up another box for only $15, so I will be getting two boxes this month and at the time I used the PROMO CODE: “LOVE” for a full-sized ModelCo eyeshadow but I think that the code is now expired you can use the PROMO code: GIFT for a Full-size ModelCo Lip/cheek tint.
You can still get your own American Beauty Glossybox for this month just go to Glossybox.com and don’t forget about the PROMO code: GIFT for your extra beauty gift! Subscriptions are $21 per month and I think the value of the products in the box are well worth it and pay for the box themselves.

Popsugar Must Have Box June 2013

Hello Sunshine!

My June Popsugar Must have box arrived yesterday and I was so excited to see it waiting for me after work! My pictures really don’t do it justice.

056

The front page of the description booklet that came with the box, I love that it explained everything in the box and why it was chosen for the box.

June 2013 pop sugar must have box

Here’s a detailed look at what was in this amazing box!

Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger retail price $25.99

I’m so excited to actually read this book! It also came with a bookmark from shopstyle.com . This is going to be perfect for sitting poolside or in the comfort of my air-conditioned home. It’s only early June and the humidity is killing me! It get’s so humid here that as soon as you walk out of the door, your hair starts to frizz and you feel sticky (Not very glamorous!)  I watched the movie “Devil Wears Prada” and loved it but never read the book. You can read the book sample in the July issue of Cosmopolitan out right now!

(I just spotted this book at my local Target and it was on sale for $18.99)
Revenge wears prada

Juice Beauty Stem Cell Repair MoisturizerRetails for $65.00

Juice Beauty is becoming one of my favorite companies for skincare. I got the Juice Beauty Apple peel in my May Birchbox and absolutely fell in love with it. This Moisturizer has a pump so you’re not digging your fingers into the tub and not contaminating the ingredients that makes it work! It has a citrus smell that I’m loving and a instantly hydrated my face as soon as I used it. I seriously wish you could smell this over the computer screen, it’s smells amazing!!!

The description that came on the card says “This rich Juice Beauty moisturizer utilizes its own blend of fruit stem cells infused with vitamin C and grape seed. It’s made with organic ingredients and proven to reduce fine lines and fight signs of aging plus it smells spectacular.”

+ 2 Juice Beauty CC cream samples in two different shades, Natural glow (light) and Warm glow (medium)

The description card says: “We also adore the Juice Beauty CC cream, so as an added bonus, we included samples of the two different shades Juice Beauty makes, so there’s one to match you and one to give to a friend!”

078

This is the top of the Juice beauty Moisturizer with the pump:

And the two Juice Beauty CC creams included:

082

Gorjana & Griffin- Zuma Scarf -Retails for $62

Also included was a $25 off a purchase at Gorjana & Griffin with no minimum purchase! I will definitely be using this and will be including this with the value of my box because I don’t have to spend any money in order to use it.

This scarf is gorgeous and my pictures don’t do it justice. Realistically, I don’t think I would’ve paid $62 for this, but I’m thrilled it came in my box! It has nautical navy blue and white strips and an accent pop of neon coral.

The description card it reads: “It’s cute and versatile and can be used as a head scarf or a sarong to cover up your bikini and hit the beach. Pair with a t-shirt and jeans for daytime, or let it add some personality to your go-to sundress all season long”

072

Hard Candy Fitness DVD- Addicted to Sweat 4 retails for  $19.99

I normally wouldn’t buy a workout video, but I’m glad this was in the box. It gives me no excuse to skip my workout when I can do it at home. I love throwing variety into my workout routine.

The description card reads :Want to know the secrets behind one of Madonna’s go-to workout routines? Use a chair and this DVD- and get ready to sweat. This intense but fun workout is aimed to sculpt, tone, and tighten the entire body.”

084

Project 7 Quench the Thirsty – Wintergreen mints retail for $1.79

I’m excited to learn about this brand of mints! Not only were these mints tasty and the packaging is adorable, I think it’s amazing that Popsugar added this into the box because it’s for a great cause. We definitely take for granted the fact that clean drinking water is so readily available for us. I couldn’t believe it when I read that more than one billion people worldwide lack a basic supply of clean water, and more than 1.8 million children die each year from water- and sanitation- related diseases.

The description card reads : “Project 7 is an amazing company that makes products that give back to a variety of charities in America and abroad. We picked these wintergreen mints, which benefit a project to bring clean drinking water to communities around the world. By choosing Project 7 Quench the Thirsty products, we are helping to provide clean water to people in need.”

075

Popcorn, Indiana – Fit  Sea Salt Popcorn $2-3 value ?

I thoroughly enjoyed this snack while watching the Bridesmaids for the millionth time!

It was really lite, and I’m really glad they didn’t put some crazy flavor in the box because I really loved the flavor of this popcorn. I love trying new healthy snacks. I think adding new snacks to your diet really make dieting enjoyable when you’re not stuck eating the same bland rice cake day after day. I’ve lost about 55lbs since October 2011 and it’s been really hard not to go back to old habits. I will be picking up another bag of these. They had a really light flavor but weren’t bland either.

The description card reads: “With 40 calories or fewer per cup, this is an addictive snack you certainly don’t have to feel guilty about. It’s all natural and gluten-free with zero trans fat. Try it to perk up your afternoon, or bring it out when you watch the big summer blockbuster.”

069

The total estimated value for this Popsugar must-have box was $202.00 (with the $25 gift card included)

I paid $30 for this box, with the promo code ” Refer5 ” . The box is $35 a month and there is an estimated value of $100 or more each month in the box. The box has a variety of things from beauty, home goods, food, books, fitness and a lot more. Most of the items in the box are Full-sized or Deluxe sized. This is the one box I get most excited about getting every month!

Next month Popsugar Must Have box turns one years old! I can’t wait to see what they’ll have in their boxes! This is the perfect time, in my opinion to subscribe if you’re going to. I had been eyeing this box for awhile and every month when a new box would come out I would be kicking myself for not getting it. In my opinion this box has a lot to offer and it seems to just be getting better. Right now you can use the PROMO CODE: Refer5 and get $5 off you’re first box! You can go to this link to order your first box: https://musthave.popsugar.com/  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Do you subscribe to Popsugar Must have? What’s your favorite box that you’ve gotten so far?

XOXO-

Erin

Glossyboxes?! My very lucky day!

Hey Everyone!

I guess the subscription box gods loved me yesterday because not only did my Julep Maven June box come in the mail, my May 2013 Glossybox came! I was shocked to see that there were two Glossybox packages in my mailbox. At first, I thought that maybe I had gotten charged for both… I frantically checked my bank account and I had gotten both boxes for only $21.00! Everything in both boxes were exactly the same (Except one had my free eyeliner in it from my promo code). I ended up giving the second box to my mother, why? Because I love her and she never buys stuff for herself, and two I was a horrible teenager who would raid her beauty supply on a regular!

photo (2)

The month of May Glossybox turned one! Happy Birthday Glossybox! && thank you for both amazing boxes!

I used the promo code “wink” and got a free eyeliner with my first box! It a matte brown liquid liner, I’m not huge on wearing brown I prefer Black liquid liner but hey, free is free! I will probably end up using it eventually. That promo code is now expired, but you can use the Promo code “LOVE” for a full sized ModelCo eyeshadow ($22 value)

When I initially opened my box, they had the Glossybox Mag right on top which had some really amazing articles in it about beauty from all around the world, Lash Lust and an article about one of my new favorite bloggers/it-girls/Fashion illustrators, Dallas Shaw! She collaborate with Glossybox for June’s special edition box called “American Beauty”. Everything in the box is made here in America and Dallas Shaw personally picked out. I have to say, I am obsessed with her style! I can see why she has worked with brands like DKNY, Chanel, Kate Spade, Anthropologie and more. You can see some of the spoilers for the June box from my post a couple days ago. I think this is going to be the best box yet! If you haven’t subscribed to Glossybox, go to Glossybox.com (The box will ship the end of this month)

In both boxes I got :

This was the first box, with my eyeliner I got from using the promo code- WINK

My second box that went to my mom:

photo (7)

sample of Epionce intense anti-aging+ Repair serum This sample is really, really small but I look forward to using the expensive brand lol. I don’t think I would pay $136.00 Full price for the 30 ml you get for that price, but I’m curious about how the product is going to be! (my sample was 4 ml and a value $18) (Full size is 136.00/30ml)

1 Etre Belle collagen & aloe vera hydro mask- I’m actually really excited to try this mask! I will try to review the products when I actually have the chance to use them. (value $3.95) (Full size is valued at $39.50/10 masks)

European wax center In box boxes I got two samples each (4 in total, which I’m guessing are about $1 each?) 1 “The exfoliate” (4ml) ,1 Slow it down body wash, 2 Slow it down body lotions ($4.00? value for all) .I also got a coupon for a free bikini line wax/eyebrow wax or underarm wax! YAY! – I’m not going to guess how much those would be, but the value is great and I will definitely be locating the spa near me to use it!

A full size ModelCo lip duo lipstick & shine ultra lipgloss (Retails for $39!) I personally didn’t like the lipstick, but my mom did. In both boxes they were the same shade. I however did love the lipgloss. It smells amazing and isn’t sticky at all! the packaging even has a cute mirror on it, perfect for your purse!

swatches of both the lipgloss and lipstick:

photo (1)

Nicka K New York- Absolute! Perfume stick Full size!! (Full size retails at $14.99/ .29 oz.) I am in love with this smell. It has a citrus smell to it which is one of my favorites. I wore it today and mixed it with my Dolce and Gabbana light blue and had my own amazing signature scent. (I felt very glamorous) . In both boxes the scents and sizes were the same.

Sebastian professional volupt spray- (travel size worth $6.69/) full size is $19.95/5.07 oz. I also got a coupon with for the Sebastian professional line to use at Ulta for a free 1.5 oz. SHAPER or SHAPER plus with any $15 Sebastian purchase ($8.95 value)

Box of my boxes together were valued at over $169.00! each box was worth about $84.00 not including the free wax coupon, eyeliner or the Ulta coupon.

I think this monthly subscription box is worth it. The packaging is adorable, it came in a light pink save-able box that I will be reusing. The products were good, I haven’t really heard of most of the brands in the box, but it’s nice to try products I wouldn’t have normally found out about. That’s the whole reason I love subscription boxes is trying new products and brands! I’m really not sure why I got two boxes in the mail, but I’m glad my mom got to get my extra box!

June 2013 Julep Maven Nantucket Nostalgia Collection

This month I ordered the “Bombshell box” from Julep. This is my second box and I’m not going to lie, I came so close to ordering the entire collection! This month I decided that I was only going to buy one add-on and I’m definitely pleased with my entire box!photo 2 (1)

Update: On a side note before I get into what I got inside my box, last month I got the “It girl” Intro box with a bright yellow Crème nail polish color called “Abbie”. My first reaction after I put it on was vindication that I had finally gotten the perfect neon yellow for summer UNTIL I took it off! My finger nails are still stained French’s mustard yellow. WTF?!? So my advice for anyone uses that polish is to wear a base coat! It’s probably my fault for not putting it on underneath the polish in the first place, but I was so shocked when I took off the polish. I look at my nails in shame now 

I got 3 nail polishes (Payton, Raegan, and Bunny), the new julep DD cream (Light) and a couple pieces of salt water taffy! I added the white nail polish “Bunny” for $4.99 with my box.

I’m in love with the colors of this box! Payton is a beautiful Kelly green crème, Raegan is an Electric dark pink Crème and Bunny is a Crisp white linen with fine gold shimmer.

The new DD cream is valued at $36.00 regular price and if you’re a Julep Maven it’s only $28.80

On the julep website it says: “A dynamic do-all makeup that goes beyond BB crème to moisturize, prime, perfect, and protect—both instantly and over time.”

• It has SPF 25
• Anti-aging ingredients that decrease the appearance of pores and fine lines
• Hibiscus and olive extracts for hydrated skin
• Buildable coverage and smooth finish
• Comes in four shades: Light, Medium, Medium-dark, Dark

My total box value was around $78 (full price without the Julep Maven discount)
With the Maven discount this box is worth about $62

The Julep box is a monthly subscription service that is about $20 a month. Every month on the 24th they send you an email with your monthly picks for the upcoming box. If you like what they’ve picked out for you, you don’t have to do anything. You have the chance to skip your box, pick a different box, add items into your box for an additional fee, get the entire collection, or send it to a friend. They Charge you on the 27th of the month and send it out after that.

Pros:
• You can skip the monthly box if you don’t like what’s in the box, want to send it to a friend or if you just want to save your $20+
• The colors are beautiful and you only really need one coat to get the true color of the product.
• Packaging is beautiful

Cons:

  • In my first box, one of the nail polishes severely stained my fingers yellow (and they have been stained for about 7-8 days now)
  • The products that come in the box are pretty tiny compared to Essie/OPI/Zoya.

If you want to order the Julep box you can use the promo code – Freemaven  or Freebox  and  get your box for free, only pay the $3.95 shipping and handling!  Click on the picture below:

So let’s cross our fingers and hope that it’s worth it. What did you get in your julep box? Have you tried the DD cream? Leave me some love below!

American Beauty Glossy Box June 2013 (Spoilers)

Hello Gorgeous!

Glossybox has announced some spoilers for the June 2013 box “American Beauty” . Dallas Shaw, a fashion illustrator has collaborated with Glossybox. Even though I have not received my May 2013 Anniversary Edition box yet, I’m really excited about my June box!  I was that kid that looked in my parents closet during Christmas time to peak at what they had gotten me. I am horrible with surprises! I have gotten a little better, but I do love my spoilers!
