Want to Try Out Svbscription? Check Out this Gilt City Deal


Svbscription is a subscription box for men that seems to have changed a bit since I last investigated it. It used to be a quarterly box that was super expensive, but now it appears to be more of a personal shopping service for men, similar to Trunk Club except that Svbscription also includes grooming products and home items. After filling out a style survey with Svbscription they will send you a box full of items they think you’ll enjoy and then you’ll have 10 days to decide if you’d like to keep anything and you only pay for what you keep.

While I can’t find pricing information on Svbscription (likely because it’s based on what you keep after receiving a box), right now gilt City has a deal available where for $50 you will get one box from Svbscription that includes a $100 credit that can be applied toward any items you decide to keep.

This offer may not be for everyone, but this is the best deal I have ever seen for Svbscription! According to Gilt City the company works with brands such as “Malin & Goetz, steven alan, WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie and more.”

Per the fine print the voucher must be redeemed by April 26, 2015.

Here’s What I Received in My January Birchbox

Birchbox January 2015

I like the theme of the January Birchbox, “Let’s Do This.” In regards to Birchbox they say they’re making a vow to “make the most of every minute.” That’s something I can get down with, though I’m not entirely certain how the products in the January Birchbox tie into that theme. That said, I’m pretty happy with the items I received this month and putting almost all of the products to good use!

Here’s what I received in my January Birchbox:

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream – Here’s my secret: I subscribe to so many subscription boxes that it has been a REALLY long time since I’ve had to pay for eye cream. I have my favorites, of course, for the day that the deluxe samples run out, but until then the samples do their job perfectly. I’ve been running a bit low, so this Wonder Eye Cream couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. This cream, which is a Birchbox Exclusive, allegedly “conquers wrinkles and dark circles at the first signs of aging.”

When Travelmate Sheet Mask

When Travelmate Sheet Mask – I probably won’t be doing any travel anytime soon, but I love these sheet masks that occasionally get set out in subscription boxes. I haven’t tried this particular mask yet, but I’m looking forward to it. This one apparently “soothes and nourishes after sun, wind, and other hazards.”


Join Julep & Get a Free Valentine’s Day Welcome Box!

Julep Valentine's Day Welcome Box

Right now when you join Julep you can get a free Valentine’s Day Welcome Box! This box looks like it includes everything needed to create a fun Valentine’s Day mani, including their new holographic heart glitte top coat! This box has a $58 retail value, which isn’t bad.

Interested in grabbing the box? Go here and enter code “BEMINE” at checkout. The Valentine’s Day Welcome Box will even ship for free!

Please note: Once you subscribe you will be enrolled in their monthly subscription program. Feel free to cancel at anytime but note that you will be charged monthly until you do cancel!

Whereas it used to be that your first Julep box was free, you now have to subscribe to get the free box. Julep Maven subscriptions currently cost $24.99 per month, or $19.99 per month if you subscribe for three months. Along with the price increase, Julep has made it much easier to create a box that you truly want each month.


Now you have a couple of options:

  1. Pick one of their boxes that you like the best
  2. Pick one of their boxes and swap a product for something else you like more
  3. Pick one of their boxes and swap a product PLUS pick nail colors that you like more

Julep is truly personalized now and more of a beauty subscription box than just a nail subscription box, but just costs a few bucks more to get those options.

Here’s What I Received in my January Ipsy Bag

Ipsy January 2015

You know, I don’t think I ever reviewed my December bag from Ipsy and at this point I don’t even remember what was included. I do remember being fairly underwhelmed, so you didn’t really miss anything! Things seem to be back on track this month though, thank goodness. I say this sarcastically since in the year I’ve been a subscriber I think there have only been 2 bags I didn’t love. Ipsy is usually pretty reliable!

Here’s what I received in my January Ipsy bag:

2015-01-17 22.18.52

Pacifica Coconut Eye Shadow – Full size Product! – I haven’t tried this yet but I love the neutral color. Colors like this are my go-to for everyday use so I’m certain I’ll get plenty of use out of this!

2015-01-17 22.19.53

Hey Honey Take it Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask – There are few beauty products that make me happier than peel off masks. There’s just something so satisfying about removing it, you know? I’m not familiar with this brand but I cannot wait to put this to use!


Here’s What I Received in the January PopSugar Must Have Box

As previously discussed, the November PopSugar Must Have Box and December PopSugar Must Have Box were two of the best subscription boxes I have ever received! Each box was filled with awesome treasures, almost all of which I have put to good use! My January PopSugar Must Have Box arrived yesterday and while I was a *little* bummed that it wasn’t quite as awesome as the past two boxes, there’s no denying that it’s still a good box full of useful products. The products just aren’t quite as exciting as they’ve been the past couple of months.

Here’s what I received in the January PopSugar Must Have Box:

2015-01-15 19.14.18

Manduka eQua hand Towel ($16) – At the moment the most athletic thing I’m doing is rolling out bed each morning, but in a couple of months this water-absoring hand towel might come in super handy!

2015-01-15 19.12.06

ToGoSpa EYES ($12.50) – You know what will come in handy right this very minute? This EYE treatment that is supposed to help get rid of dark circles and puffiness. As I mentioned in my Tarte CC Undereye Corrector review, sleep has not been my friend during this pregnancy so I need all the help I can get especially when it comes to dark circles. I will definitely be trying these out later today!

2015-01-15 19.13.55

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($28) – This is a product I have thought about trying but probably never would have purchased for myself. $28 for “repair cream”? I can do a lot with $28 and purchasing body creams isn’t usually very high on the list. That said, my skin is super dry this winter so I know I’ll put this to good use! What’s awesome about this particular cream is that it’s allergy-tested and free of fragrance, harsh chemicals, and parabens, which is awesome news for my super sensitive skin!
