Beauty Box 5 September Sneak Peek: Nicka K Eyelight Crayon

Beauty Box 5 September Sneak Peek: Nicka K Eyelight Crayon

Beauty Box 5 just sent out a preview of their upcoming September box! All boxes next month will receive a full-size Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon, which has a retail value of $4.49.

Effortlessly impart a rich wash of color with our Eye Light Crayons. Smooth, buttery and silky, these cream shadows easily glide across lids as either a bold liner or can be blended out as an ideal overall lid shade or base. The crease resistant formula is long wearing and available in 14 shades.

This is just one of the five products that will be included in the September box.

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly beauty subscription box. It costs $12 per month and each month they send out an assortment of 5 deluxe beauty products.

Here’s What I Received in My August Wantable Box

I am sorry to see summer come to an end if for no other reason than Wantable has sent out some truly amazing boxes this summer that I hope continue into the fall!

The August Wantable Box was no different, in fact, it might be my favorite box yet! (This despite the fact that I received a product not actually intended for me.)

Here’s what I received in my August Wantable Box:

Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Blush Palette

Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Blush Palette ($45) – This might just be my favorite full-size beauty product I’ve ever received in any subscription box. Whenever I need to purchase cosmetic products, blush is the furthest thing from my mind. In fact, I think the only blush I’ve ever purchased is Hot Mama from theBalm. Needless to say, I’ve never spent much time trying out new blushes or finding something I love other than Hot Mama. Thanks to this awesome palette I’ll finally get the chance to do so and my fingers are crossed that I love one of these four colors (or, even better, ALL of them)!

Also awesome? The cost of this one product covered the cost of the box!


PopSugar Must Have Fall Style Sneak Peek

Popsugar Must Have Fall Style Sneak Peek

Surprisingly enough, the PopSugar Must Have Fall Style Box hasn’t sold out yet! That’s good news for those of you who put off purchasing a box and were perhaps thinking it was too late. This $100 box is scheduled to ship out at the end of this month, so there isn’t much longer to wait!

Perhaps in a bid to try to get more people to get the box, they just sent out a sneak peek of one of the items that will be included in the box. (Well, a sneak peek if you can call a few words a sneak peek!) One of the items that is included in the box will be something featuring cashmere and wool from Joie.

My guesses?

Joie Idirie Gloves


There’s a good chance it could be the Joie Idirie Gloves, which are 70% wool and 30% cashmere and cost $108.

Joie Dorissa Scarf

Alternatively, I wouldn’t rule out the Joie Dorissa Scarf because heaven knows the crew over at PopSugar love sending out scarves! The upcoming September PopSugar Must Have Box will include a scarf, as have quite a few of their other boxes. The Dorissa Scarf is also 70% wool and 30% cashmere and costs $228.

Of course, you never know. The PopSugar Must Have Fall Style could have a completely different cashmere & wool item from Joie!

Posh Pet Box Review – A New Monthly Subscription Box for Dogs

Posh Pet Box

I was recently invited to try out Posh Pet Box, which is a new subscription box for dogs. Posh Pet Box offers designer dog clothes, toys, treats, and accessories. My dogs are spoiled little things and I spend too much money purchasing new products for them (I should really start a doggy review blog), so of course I was excited about the opportunity. New items for my dogs? Sign me up!

Here’s what I received in my Posh Pet Box:

Hukley and Kent Dog Collar

Huxley and Kent Dog Collar ($16.99 retail value) – Though I only photographed one, I should point out that the box contained two collars - one for each of my dogs. Can you believe that despite all of the stuff I purchase for my dogs, each of them has only had one collar? Receiving matching ones for them was a nice treat and in general this is a high-quality collar that’s pretty soft.

Honest Kitchen Smooches

Honest Kitchen Smooches ($7.99 retail value) – A few years ago I had an opportunity to visit the Consumer Reports Testing Lab for a tour. While there, someone asked why they don’t test dog food for claims of being the best tasting food out there and our guide responded that they had no accurate way of testing what tastes good to a dog. This makes sense, but I’ve obviously never forgotten that part of the tour partially because my dogs are the world’s pickiest eaters. Thanks to various dog subscription boxes they have been able to try some (what I assume to be) delicious treats and as a result they will refuse to eat any treats that don’t live up to their high standards. Seriously. I’ll hand them the treat and if they don’t like it they will drop it on the floor and walk away. This is all a long way of saying that my dogs LOVE smooches and run to the kitchen for treat time. These treats are made with human-grade ingredients and each one is individually crafted into a little heart. We will definitely be purchasing these again!


What I Received in the August From the Lab Beauty Explorer Box

From the Lab

You know, this is the third month that I’ve received a From the Lab Beauty Explorer Box and yet it is my first time reviewing the box. ALL of the boxes I’ve received have been awesome and filled with quality products! Though I haven’t yet tried and am not reviewing the products that came in the August box, I was amazed at just how much product was included.

From the Lab is a little different from some of the other subscription boxes in that they send out their own products. From the Lab works with scientists and clinicians to develop their own beauty products that are comparable to the high-end beauty products found in stores. According to From the Lab, “Our beauty editors and advisors meet with the top cosmetic labs in the world to bring you small, limited lab runs of the most innovative beauty products up to 18 months before they’re in retail stores.” The opportunity to try out new products like this in a subscription format is pretty awesome!

From the Lab products are paraben-free and are not tested on animals.

Here’s what I received in my August From the Lab Beaty Explorers Box:

From the Lab August 2014

This month From the Lab sent out the Summer Essentials Collection 2, which contained the following products:

Hair Cleanser No. 724 – According to the description, this cleanser features a “combination of healing oils and patented stem cell technology” that cleans, conditions, detangles, eliminates frizz, and minimizes straight ends. This cleanser is formulated without sulfates and will not get sudsy. It is apparently so gentle that it can be used as a face or body wash.

Body Serum No. 580 – Apparently the ingredients in this body serum are some of the same that are used in fancy spas in Switzerland, including Swiss thermal water! I’ve never used a body serum before and apparently serums can penetrate deeper into the skin  because they are comprised of smaller molecules than moisturizers.

Face Scrub No. 597 - This face scrub gently removes debris from skin, but it is also packed with “healing actives” that will help soothe and moisturize.

I’m looking forward to trying out all of these products, though I have to admit that I am most intrigued by the body serum!

The From the Lab Beauty Explorer Box costs $29.95 per month, including shipping. Thus far I have received all types of beauty products – including lipstick, hair products, and skincare products – and everything I have received has been high-quality and seemingly worth more than the cost of the subscription. I can’t wait to see what they send out next… and I promise to review it, too, and not keep the goodness to myself.

PopSugar Must Have Box September Sneak Peek: Gorgeous Fall Scarf

PopSugar Must Have September Sneak Peek

I can’t say I ever thought that the PopSugar Must Have Box would begin sending out teasers to their monthly boxes, but this weekend I received an email letting me know that one of the items that will be included in the upcoming September PopSugar Must Have Box is the gorgeous scarf pictured above from Tilo Scarves, which has a retail value of $125! I absolutely LOVE it!

While I have given this box a hard time in the past about sending out so many scarves in the past, there’s no denying that the scarves they have sent out have been wonderful and I wear them regularly. I REALLY want this one!

The PopSugar Must Have Box costs $39.95 per month and ships for free. While I took a break from the box this summer, it has long been one of my favorite subscription boxes. Each box typically contains about $100-$150 worth of products, but the September box will obviously go quite a bit over that thanks to the value of this scarf!
