Subscription Box Saturday

Standard

What do you do when you get three subscription boxes in one day?

3 boxesYou write about the easiest one!

This is the first time I’ve received all three of these on the same day. This is not to to mention the other two NEW boxes I received earlier in the week.

But I can’t talk about them all.

So let’s start with Birchbox:

September Birchbox Contents

September Birchbox Contents

I love the contents of this month’s box! I am really excited to give everything a try. I am especially excited for:

Ojon Restoriative Lash Treatment and Mascara Duo

Ojon Restorative Lash Treatment and Mascara Duo

I knew that this was “lash treatment,” but didn’t know it included mascara until I was writing this post. I love this kind of stuff! You know I’ll be testing it out tomorrow!

Another item that is hard to see in the contents picture:

Birchbox Pedicure

VOESH New York Lemon Pedicure Scrub

This is another item I can’t wait to try. Just receiving this made me feel like I’m being pampered this month. I’m going to save it for a reward after a run or a race.

The other items:

  • BCBGMAXAZRIA Bon Genre perfume sample – I love receiving perfume samples. I am waiting for the day that I love one so much that it makes me run out and buy it. I have a few of my staple favorites and I don’t often deviate. But when the day comes that I adore a scent, you better believe that I’ll be getting a full-sized bottle.
  • COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 Mineral Suncreen – I would more likely expect to see this in the summer, but whatever. By now, we all know that we should be wearing sunscreen year round. Being fair-skinned myself, I apply it often. However, with my Vitamin D deficiency discovery as of late, I’ve been foregoing the sunscreen on short runs after work.
  • RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer (Fox Hunt color) – This is an all-purpose color for fall or spring. Maybe I’ll treat those tootsies after the pedicure treatment.

As you can see, I’m quite excited about this month’s box. If you subscribe to Birchbox, what did you receive? Everyone receives something different depending on how you answer the profile questions! Just $10 per month.

What products are your favorite for pampering yourself?

Women’s Health Birchbox

Standard

I know it’s not my usual Subscription Box Saturday, but my Birchbox arrived in the mail today and I just couldn’t wait to share because it’s been one of my favorites ever!

For April 2013, Birchbox coordinated with Women’s Health magazine to put a box together with the theme “Tiny Tweaks, Big Results.” Remember, different boxes go out to different members, so here is what came in my box this month:

April 2013 Birchbox: Ting

Kusmi Teas, Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner for Beautiful Color (2 of each, sample size), Supergoop! Advanced SPF 40 Anti-Aging Eye Cream, Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick, Skin&Co Roma Cleansing Sicilian Body Gel

I’m very excited to try all of these! But look carefully on top of the box. Birchbox members get a free one year subscription to Women’s Health Magazine! Score!

And while I’m loving this Birchbox to the max, I just have one request (okay two) of the folks over there…

Birchbox, I am in the market for a new moisturizer and a new mascara.

I don’t have one of either that I love and would appreciate sampling some to find a new favorite!

Can you please consider those in an upcoming box?

Why, thank you.

Off to put away my new items and pack that lovely tea with my lunch tomorrow!

What magazines do you subscribe to and why?
