Here I am, Opening a Box Again.

I’m bored in the hotel, so I decided to turn on my camera and capture the magic that is opening a box and taking out beauty products. I assumed you’d want to see, too. Was April’s box a hit or a miss? You’ll have to watch to find out; the suspense is killing you, I’m sure.

Here’s the breakdown:

Color Club Art Duo Pen

Full Size: $25 (for 3) // Sample Size: $8.33 (for 1)

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Silver Eyeliner

Full Size: $16 (0.04 oz.) // Sample Size: $12 (0.03 oz.)

Madison Reed Nourishing, Color-Enhancing Shampoo

Full Size: $19.95 (8 fl. oz.) // Sample Size: $2.49 (1 fl. oz.)

Madison Reed Nourishing, Color-Enhancing Conditioner

Full Size: $19.95 (8 fl. oz.) // Sample Size: $2.49 (1 fl. oz.)

KIND Snacks Healthy Grains Bar – Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt

Full Size: $11.88 (for 15) // Sample Size: $0.79 (for 1)

Total Box Cost: $10.00

Total Box Value: $26.10

Total Money Saved: $16.10

Final Thoughts: Cost-wise, this box was a good value, especially for the nail art pen and the eyeliner, which, ironically, were my least favorite items. However, when you look at the items I actually liked and/or will use, those come in at only $5.77, which is a huge bummer. I essentially wasted $4.23 this month. Watch the video above for more in-depth thoughts on each product.

I Opened a Box!

Watch my super cool video to see what I thought of this month’s Birchbox. A Birchbox reveal video? Totally new concept, right?   I mean, that beautiful face I’m making in the video thumbnail alone should be enticing!

Final Thoughts: Cost-wise, this box was a good value, especially for the expensive skincare products.  Would I have bought these things on my own?  Probably not.  For $10 though?  I’ll take it!  For my final review of this month’s box, watch the video!

 

Drugstore Haul, Y’all!

Time for another haul – this time I made a video and perhaps had a little too much fun editing (of which I’m NOT an expert, mmkay??).  Enjoy!

July Birchbox!

Check out this month’s Birchbox. For me, it’s hit or miss. Lately it’s been hit…will this month’s continue the winning streak?? Dun, dun, dun!

 

Update: So I just received an email from Birchbox, apologizing for apparently sending me a repeat box.  That explains why it was so “blah” this month!  They did give me 100 Birchbox points, so I guess that (sort of) makes up for it.
