Beauty Box Battle


Subscription Box Saturday: Beauty Box Edition

Remember how I was trying to figure out which Beauty Box to keep last month? Well this month, my beauty boxes left me feeling completely…


This might have something to do with me. I’m not feeling so beautiful these days. So take my thoughts on these boxes with a grain of salt.


Birchbox – June 2013

Davines Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Oil – The shampoo is fine. The conditioner ended up in my travel kit for when I run out on the road and the oil reminds me of the Moroccan Oil that I already use (only not as nice smelling!)

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser – This was nice to have. It’s been a while since I’ve used a sugar scrub or exfoliant on my body.

Color Club Wanderlust Collection – Still need to fix the nails before I can use this polish. My toes are currently pedicured.

Oscar de la Renta Something Blue – This perfume is fine. Not exceptional or something I’d buy. Good to try, though.


And even though I was so excited last month when my first Beauty Army box arrived with these words:

ba2….I just wasn’t feeling it this month.

Nor was I feeling it with the stuff that I chose to go into my box.


Beauty Army – May (or June?) 2013

I’m not sure if I should call this box May or June because I get to choose my products around the 25th of the month and then it ships the following month.

Teas – They were some of the better choices for this month’s box. But I have not yet tried either. I was on a tea kick for a bit, but it’s been soooo hot lately. Maybe I should try them as iced tea.

Yes to Daily Pore Scrub – Went straight to my travel bag.

Cotz Face Sunscreen for Natural Skin Tones – I actually love how this feels on my face! Not greasy or oily. It actually gives my skin a better, more silky feel. I may consider buying this for the summer.

Therabreath Oral Rinse – In a word – Mouthwash.

Mini Kittour Travel Bottle – Have not used this yet, but it’s a good staple for my travel bag.


Right now, I’m debating if I should keep these boxes at all. But this is the first month I’ve felt that way, so we’ll see.

Do you ever feel ho-hum about things that usually get you excited?

How do you explain this?

  1. Maybe you are addicted to box subscriptions and you expect each one to be higher than the last one? Who knows – maybe next months will be better!

    Hope you had a great weekend!
