Scently Box June 2016

Scently Box is a monthly subscription box that sends out items that help you to relax and unwind.  They offer three sizes of box, Mini, Mod, and Ultra and you can also choose to have them delivered once a month or every three months.  Boxes start at $22.99 a month but go down with longer plans.  There is a $15.00 shipping fee to Canada as well.  Boxes include items made with natural ingredients, handcrafted items, bath and body items, and samples.  I was hoping for something different from what I’ve received before so let’s see what we find in the box!

This box came carefully wrapped in a bubble mailer and it was heavy!  Once I opened it up I could see that it was fully packed and there seemed to be lots of goodies in there.  I wasn’t sure exactly what kind of items this box would provide and after the first look, I still wasn’t completely sure.  They also don’t have an info card so I will be guessing on some of the items.

This is a nice big bag of bath salts.  This is in a Fig scent and I’m happy with this to start off my experience with them.  Bath soaks are useful and indulgent so this is a welcome product.

20180615_203901

This candle has no scent listed on it but it smells nice.  It’s in a glass holder and probably has a 20 or so hour burn time.  I like that they have started off with a relaxing bath theme here 🙂

20180615_203707

These are “Fruit Spell” Travel Soaps.  They are made with coconut and palm oil and smell nice.  I like that they included different colours and that they are shaped and not just plain old square soaps.

20180615_203738

This little vial is an Egyptian Sandalwood Body Oil.  I was concerned this scent would be crazy strong but it’s beautiful!  The vial is a tiny roller ball so I can use this as a perfume as well.  I’m super happy with this item.

20180615_203758

The last item in the box is this Handmade Body Soap in Black.  Again I can’t tell what smell this is and Black is not all that helpful as a descriptor.  I’m sure it will be fine soap though.

For my first Scently Box I am very happy.  The products are nice, the sizes are great, and the scents are fantastic.  I got a mix of bath items and all of them do put me into a relaxed state of mind.  I can only hope that the next few boxes I get from them are equally great.  If you want to find this box you can go to CrateJoy and order it up!

 

 

 

LippieBox June 2018

LippieBox is a monthly subscription that sends out 5 new or trending lip and beauty products.  They say they are most popular among tweens and teens but I love lip products and think it’s going to be great.  Boxes start at $19.00 per month and there is a $7.00 shipping fee to Canada.  Prices do go down with longer subscriptions. The box itself is tiny and fits easily in your mailbox.

Red logoed box packed with all the goodies and squiggles packed in.

20180615_204014

The info card is just one side this month but has the same info as before with the items and prices plus their social media links.

20180615_204047

Note Cosmetics Mattemoist Lip Gloss in Mat Nude-$10.00

This is a perfect nude colour!  It’s one of those lipstick type glosses but I managed to not make a mess with applying it. It is not dry like most matte lip glosses and smells good too.

20180615_204305

Elemental Promise Hibiscus Briarberry Lip Balm-$7.00

This is a very nice lip balm.  It smells fairly good and is soft enough to get on your finger and out of the tub easily.  It’s also nice to not get just another tube of lip balm.

20180615_204125

Sorme Cosmetics Tasty Tube in Mystery-$15.00

This gloss is SO sparkly!!!! I love it!  It has almost no colour on my lips but the full level of shimmer comes out.  It also smells amazing, which I expect from something called a Tasty Tube.

20180615_204235

Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon in What The Future-$7.00

This lipstick is very pink and surprisingly not horrible on me.  I haven’t received any of this brand of products in a long time and it’s nice to get more. I like this though and it will be worn as a fun summer colour.

Romantic Bear Wow! Lip Colour in Cherry Red-$?

This item was subbed in for my box.  It was supposed to be another lip balm.  I’m trying to follow the directions on this but it’s made a huge mess.  It’s on my teeth and my lips and I don’t know that I can wait for the 10 minutes until it dries.  It comes out in a huge glob and it’s crazy.

I am very happy to have found this box.  I was a little concerned about getting a lip product only box as I have so much of it but the items in here are great and a good mix of things.  The value for this month is $42.00, a great value.  You can visit CrateJoy by clicking here and check out this box and many others.

Unicorn Dream Box May 2018

Unicorn Dream Box is a monthly subscription that will help to satisfy any cravings you may have for all things unicorn.  They will send out a mix of makeup, stationery, decor, and accessories.  There will also be a treat in there.  They offer two different sizes of box, Dream Mail that will send 3-4 items and the Dream Box that sends out 6-9 items.  Boxes start at $19.95 and do go down with longer plans.  There is an additional shipping charge to Canada.  I happen to love unicorns so getting this box was a bit of a no-brainer for me.

20180615_195645

The bright rainbow wrapping is back this month holding all of the lovely surprises.  There is not an info card this month, I hope that’s not going to be the new normal.

20180615_195710

First out of the bag was this glorious unicorn stuffy!  She is baby pink and has a purple shimmery horn.  I should probably give this to one of my children but that is not going to happen.  She makes me happy.

20180615_195809

These are three pastel unicorn crayons.  These are also pretty awesome but I have less of an issue letting the girl have these to use.  I don’t do much colouring and these should be used, not just sit on a shelf and get hard and useless.

20180615_195823

This lovely thing is a Clarifying Face Mask with a unicorn pattern printed on it.  That way you can become a unicorn while you are making yourself more beautiful.  I love these character masks, they are so much fun!

20180615_195845

This is a day planner.  Inside it is broken into weeks but they left blank so you can decide when you want to start the calendar.  It is very cute and I might have to put it to use once the one I am using right now.

There are two sheets of stickers that came in the bag.  Both of these can be used in the planner and will be!

20180615_195904

Lastly, we have the candy that they promise to include.  We have a gummy rainbow and a rainbow candy stick.  Both fun and delicious!

This box is even greater than I was hoping it would be.  I love the items in it and the mix of things was perfect.  The box is just fun and whimsical and will give me a good blast of unicorn for the few months I receive it.  If you want to get your own bit of unicorns click here to go to CrateJoy and search them out.

Rosalette Beauty Bag May 2018

Rosalette Beauty Bag is a monthly subscription that sends out makeup and beauty products.  They offer a few different plans, either 4 sample sized products or 5-6 products, mixed between sample and full sized.  Plans start at $13.90 a month and there are added shipping costs.  If you subscribe for a year there are discounts.  I have no beauty bags left in my sub rotation so I was on the lookout for a cheaper one to get me some fun things.  I chose the Deluxe Bag, which is the bigger of the two.  They do send out shipping notices so that’s nice and it turns out that they are a Canadian company too!!!!  There was no bag or anything again this month so we’ll get straight into the items.

20180526_083509

Starlooks Longwear Lipstix in Dragon Fruit-$12.00

I thought this was just a lip liner but according to the website, this is actually a lipstick. It is VERY coral coloured when I swatch it so I’m not sure how I can tone that down to something that is wearable.  This is one of Starlooks Perfect Size products.

20180526_083535

Manna Kadar Lash Extending Primer-$24.00

This lah primer can be worn either as a primer under your mascara or as a conditioner at night.  I’ve used this before and it does seem to make my mascara last a little better without flaking and gives my lashes a thicker look.  I have received a lot of Manna Kadar products over time and they are always good.

20180526_083650

Manna Kadar HD Perfecting Powder-$29.00

This is a colourless powder used to add a matte finish to your look.  This seems to be an old package of this item but the item itself is fine.  I like this kind of powder since blends well with everything I use and leaves my skin looking slightly less shiny than normal.

20180526_083722

Starlooks Eye Shadow in South Beach-$9.00

This pale beige shadow is another PerfectSize product.  It is a great base shade for any eye look and I will get lots of use out of this one.

20180526_083618

Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye & Lip Pencil in Wine-$10.00

This two in one pencil is very soft.  I can’t see using this on my eyes for that reason and the fact that it’s very much a wine colour that is not made for my eyes.  This is a new brand for me as well.

This month is better than the last few have been.  The value is high at $84.00 and the items are great.  There was a good mix of items and it’s nice to see the makeup back in the bag.  There still seem to be some issue with the fact that everything was just tossed into a mailer bag but at least it wasn’t the same as a few previous months.  If you want to try out this subscription click here to go to CrateJoy and check them out.

 

iBeauty Box May 2018

iBeauty Box is a monthly box that sends you an assortment of cosmetics, skin care, lifestyle items.  They include full size and sample size products from brands you know and ones to discover.  You could get anything from nail care, hair care, skincare, jewelry, or candles to makeup.  I’ve been in the market for more of the beauty boxes that drew me into this for a while so when I saw this one I thought I’d give it a try.  Boxes start at $24.99 a month and go down very slightly if you subscribe for a longer term.  Shipping to Canada is included in that price.

The box is a Cratejoy box with an iBeauty sticker on the one side.  The box is a little over half full of delightful things to discover.

20180526_084434

They include an info card that tells you what you will find and the value of those items.

20180526_084755

Turquoise Peacock Necklace-$15.99

I think this is a very pretty necklace.  The chain is a little cheap feeling but overall it’s nice.  There is a turquoise stone in the center and the outside has similar coloured stones for added sparkle.

The Balm Bronzer/Blush in Cabana Boy-$9.99

This is more of a blush in my opinion as it’s a sparkly pink shade.  It’s very light though and completely wearable. I really like The Balm products and am happy to get them in boxes.

20180526_084818

Silisponge-$9.99

These are the new makeup blenders.  I have received a few of them now from different boxes and I still haven’t tried them.  I like the Beauty Blenders and find they work well so I don’t trust this to work as well for me.  I will have to eventually give these a go.

20180526_084731

Jane Gliding Liners Eye Pencil in Slate Blue-$6.89

This is a mineral pencil and it glides on quite nicely.  It had a little bit of wax or something on the end so when I first rubbed it, nothing happened.  Then after a couple of swipes, it started to leave a mark.  I haven’t worn a blue liner in a while but I do like a pencil type eyeliner.

20180526_084621

Essie Nail Polish in Life Of The Party-$10.99

I don’t normally like getting polishes in boxes since I have a bunch and don’t wear them all that often.  However, I love the Essie brand and this is a great colour.  It is a dark pink with very tiny glitter in it.  Anything with shimmer is fine in my books!

20180526_084608

Simple Eye Markup Remover-$4.99

I have used a few other Simple products and have found them to be good at cleansing.  This is just for eye makeup removal but I expect that it will be just as effective.  It has no oils or perfumes in it, so it’ll be gentle on the delicate eye area skin.

20180526_084638

LipFusion Infatuation Lip Colour in Pucker Up-$7.99

This is a plumping lip gloss and it has the tingle of whatever method of plumping formula they are using.  It is a soft pink colour and works well for me.  This is about half of a normal sized lip gloss but it’ll still give me enough to use before I get tired of it and switch it up for something else.

There are three samples included this month.  We have Lancome Lipsticks, Burberry Brit perfume, and Nude Rescue Oil.

This month is back to what I was hoping to get when I signed up for this box.  There is a great mix of beauty products and I think I’ve finally figured out that each month I’m going to get a piece of jewelry and a tool.  The value this month is $66.83, which is a good value for what I paid.  If you want to check out iBeauty Box or any other boxes on CrateJoy click here and start your search.

 

Rosalette Beauty Bag April 2018

Rosalette Beauty Bag is a monthly subscription that sends out makeup and beauty products.  They offer a few different plans, either 4 sample sized products or 5-6 products, mixed between sample and full sized.  Plans start at $13.90 a month and there are added shipping costs.  If you subscribe for a year there are discounts.  I have no beauty bags left in my sub rotation so I was on the lookout for a cheaper one to get me some fun things.  I chose the Deluxe Bag, which is the bigger of the two.  They do send out shipping notices so that’s nice and it turns out that they are a Canadian company too!!!!  This month was also really late to arrive.

20180526_083305

Sorme Eyeliner Brush-$?

This is a brand repeat for the last few months in this bag.  This brush is 100% Sable hair.  I rarely use liner pots that require me to use a liner brush but I’m glad to have another one since anything near your eyes should be replaced often.

20180526_083334

Gold Eye Gels-$4.25

These are made by a brand I’ve never heard of but it seems to be all handmade and sold online.  These are used to help depuff and destress your eye area.  I like to use these as I can still go about what I’m doing and have them on.

20180526_083144

Sorme Jet Liner in Black-$?

This is a liquid liner that once dry is pretty smudge proof and leaves a nice smooth line.  Sometimes it takes me a few tries to get liquid liner right but I love the way it looks.

20180526_083403

Manna Kadar Eye Candy in S’more-$24.00

As you can see this arrived broken and it has bounced around.  This is really dark and I had to blend it out a bunch to get it to a wearable shade for me.  If I could do a smokey eye then this would be perfect.

20180526_083227

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Just Say Yes-$9.00

This is a Perfect Sized sample by Starlooks.  They include this in their own subscription box and I enjoy receiving them.  It’s a good makeup brand and this colour is fantastic.  It adds a wonderful sparkle to my lips and I will get lots of wear out if this one.

This month is better than the last few have been.  The value is high and the items are great.  There was a good mix of items and it’s nice to see the makeup back in the bag.  There still seem to be some issue with the fact that everything was just tossed into a mailer bag but at least it wasn’t the same as a few previous months.  If you want to try out this subscription click here to go to CrateJoy and check them out.

 

 

 

LippieBox May 2018

LippieBox is a monthly subscription that sends out 5 new or trending lip and beauty products.  They say they are most popular among tweens and teens but I love lip products and think it’s going to be great.  Boxes start at $19.00 per month and there is a $7.00 shipping fee to Canada.  Prices do go down with longer subscriptions. The box itself is tiny and fits easily in your mailbox.

The box is branded and pink and white.  Inside we find our surprises for the month, gently nestled in pink squiggles.

They include an info card that tells you all about the items that are included along with a story about some of their reviewers on Instagram.

20180526_084305

Dirty Lamb Coffee Scrub-$12.00

This scrub is so coffee scented!  This scrub is organic, vegan, and cruelty-free. I use a scrub on my body once a week and this one is going to get me going with that scent of coffee.

20180526_084212

Lip Niche Lip Gloss in Fearless-$12.00

This gloss is great!  It’s not sticky at all and has a good scent to it. The colour is a soft rose with just a hint of sparkle.  I’m always looking for new lip glosses and this one is a winner.

20180526_084123

Phone Grip-$15.00

This is a specially branded phone grip brought to us by the creators of the box.  I don’t ever use one of these because I have cases I switch out all the time and they have decorations on them I don’t want to be covered up.

20180526_084154

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Mad Crus-$9.00

This is one of Starlooks Perfect Size items.  They are smaller than full size but bigger than a sample size.  You can get a whole subscription from Starlooks of their makeup if you like it.  This colour is something I will wear all the time.  It is just darker than my lip colour and looks great on me.

20180526_084230

Magical Star Vanilla Cream Lip Balm-$3.00

This must be a bonus item as it’s not listed on the card at all.  It has a soft vanilla smell and glides on smoothly.  I like it.

I am very happy to have found this box.  I was a little concerned about getting a lip product only box as I have so much of it but the items in here are great and a good mix of things.  The value for this month is $51.00, a great value.  You can visit CrateJoy by clicking here and check out this box and many others.
