Memebox Superbox 6 Anti-Aging

What up guys!!

It feels so good to be back. I’m gonna be honest it was a little hard getting back into the swing of things but here we are with one of my favorite Subscription type boxes. I say subscription like because Memebox isn’t actually a subscription service. You can sign up on their website to have them send you emails and they will email you when a new box becomes available or if they have restocked any boxes. So let’s get started…

Image

Memebox Superbox #6 Anti-Aging Box!

So the box come like this but protected in bubble wrap and inside a black sealed bag. They really go above and beyond to make sure you don’t have any problems with your box, which, I appreciate. Next…

Image

Superbox 6 Anti-Aging First look. Look at that first look. I knew before this box even got to my door that I would love it.

This is the first look in the box and I love it. I always love Superbox because it’s all full size items! It does cost more because or that but Anti-Aging box is one I don’t mind paying extra for full-sized products. Sample sizes just don’t cut it with Anti-Aging. You know what I mean?

Image

Elisha Coy Water Drop Suncream (Oil Free & Non-stick) + (mask sheet) 50ml $38 USD…Ahh. I thought the included and extra face mask but now I see it was supposed to be in the box. The info card didn’t have a pic for this item so I was confused but not any longer…Ding, Ding, Ding.

Elisha Coy Water Drop Sunscreen. This sunscreen is awesome. I love it! it is weightless, non-greasy. It doesn’t feel like sunblock at all! I’m so glad we are starting to get other option for sunblock than those traditional greasy, white, goopy paste that doesn’t ever blend into your skin and just makes a complete mess. This Elisha Coy Sunblock does not do any of that! This should be everyone’s and is my new Holy Grail products. It prevents sun damage and pre-mature wrinkles I never realized how important sunblock is and I am a complete convert and this is an everyday product in my routine.

Image

Societte Eye Tangle Spot Black Gel 20ml.
Full Size Product. $29.00 USD

Societte Eye Tangle Spot Black Gel 20ml $29.00. This The info card says this targets any wrinkle around the eye, mouth and forehead area. I absolutely love the packaging here it seems so fancy because it’s black gel. Honestly though I don’t know exactly what step this is in my routine. I’ve been putting it on before or after eye cream. Do you guys think that’s correct or am I using it wrong? There are so many skin products sometimes I just put like 2 or 3 serums on. I figure the more the better! Haha am I just wasting product or do you guys think the same way? I’d love to know. I tried to find a link to this product but I couldn’t, I even looked on Memebox. Sorry.

 

Image

Crema Galatea Night Cream 50ml (This is fancy it comes with a warranty card!! $39.00 USD

Creama Galatea Night Cream 50ml. Now this is fancy! Seriously. It comes with a warranty card! The fragrance is very stong but I really like it but I don’t even smell it a couple of minutes later. This is enhanced with avocado, jojoba oil, bay leaf extract and lavender oil. It also gives a Pro Tip?  It says use the white sparkling pearl to highlight your eyes. I don’t get that part but I really like this stuff so eh, whateves.

Image

DKDN BIFIDA Perfect Essence Special Treatment 30ml Retails $24

DKDN BIFIDA Perfect Essence Special Treatment 30ml. $24 Memebox says this is an essence that smooths fine lines and tightens loose skin by deeply penetrating the skin’s surface to help in the regeneration of cells. This is also moisturizing to keep skin soft and hydrated. This has a fancy dropper in it. It’s not the traditional straight one, it’s slanted! Now that’s fancy! Hehe. I’m obsessed with skin care if you haven’t noticed and I’m also obsessed with Memebox because it feeds my skin care obsession!

Image

Secret Key Super Plumping Gel Oil 30g Retails $42 USD. This screams my name. Take a look at this, this sceams my name! It had me as soon as I seen it was pink(smells  great too). Haha

 

Secret Key Super Plumping Gel Oil 30g $42. This is supposed to have many great effects, while mainly targeting wrinkles. It says to use this after toner and you’ll quickly be on your way to smoother, younger and brighter skin. Seriously this had me at its packaging. It’s super girlie looking and smells great. Love it!!!!

Image

Chamos Acaci Snail Repair Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream 30ml Retails $21 USD. I love this packaging too! I love how easy this is to dispense. So easy!

Chamos Acaci Snail Repair Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream 30ml. $21. This eye cream significantly improves the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles around the eyes by forming a protective layer of moisture on the skin. I love eye creams. My current eye cream is the Michael Todd Knu eye cream. That has the snail serum in it and I’m happy to try another brand with snail slime in it! Anything for beauty, right?

Image

DR. Joy Sensational Forehead & Glabella Patch 10g USD. Retails $21

Dr. Joy Sensational Forehead & Glabella Patch 10g. Full Size $21. Then Ricebran and Arbutin. Eco Pure Pulp Mask Sheet 23g ? Not sure on the value of this one. This was not on my info card. I don’t know if they just threw in an extra item. They must have unless they forgot to print it on the info sheet. Either way I’m grateful for any and all skincare products.

I tried the Forehed and Glabella Patch. I really like this mask. Let me tell you why… It’s only a forehead mask. Sometimes I don’t feel like having a mask all over my face especially when they don’t always fit right but this one fit perfectly and a forehead patch is totally do-able. By do-able I mean I can wear it and not scare the crap out of my kids! Haha!

Image

Memebox Superbox #6 Anti-Aging Kit $59

 

 

Ok so to sum up this Superbox #6 Anti-Aging Box these are my thoughts. This is one of my favorite boxes. Superbox 1 and Superbox 6 are my absolute favorites so far. Both are sold out. If they do a restock on either box I would drop everything you’re doing and order ASAP! These boxes sell out quick so there is not much time for thinking. Just ordering! Haha.

This box cost cost $59 and the value for the box I came up with was $214!! That is incredible! Seriously. Ah-mazing!!!!! Love me some Memebox!

I hope you guys enjoyed my little review. I’m sorry this is sold out right now but don’t worry too much they usually restock boxes so just be on the lookout or better yet go sign up for email updates and you’ll get 2 points equal to $2 off your order plus you’ll know when the boxes come in so you get a chance to order it.

If you love skin care I think this is the perfect box for you. I absolutely love it and I am always happy with what I get. They also have makeup boxes, men boxes, they have a get sexy in 10 minute box or something along those lines. A night before box so if you have a big event to go to this box is supposed to make you glow from within kinda deal the next day.

I could go on and on. If you’re interested in these boxes I’ll include the link here. I’ll just let you know shipping can take 2 weeks to a month for standard. but I don’t mind waiting because it costs a lot less so that’s up to you.

Thank you guys for stopping by.  I am hoping to write one blog per week if I can get more done awesome I’ll definitely shoot for it but you can expect at least once per week.

Thank you to all the new subscribers. Welcome, glad to have you guys here. Is there anything you guys are curious to have reviewed? I know I’ve been doing boxes a lot but I did just pick up the Kat Von D palette, Monarch. I’ve been playing with it this week.  Let me know.

Love you guys!

Xoxo,

Amy

 


 

 

 

 

Ipsy Februrary 2014

Oh boy. So I’m pretty late getting this out. I bought myself a new laptop and it’s really time-consuming trying to get all my accounts downloaded and up to date but enough about that lets jump on in. It’s Ipsy time baby!

IMG_4667

Ipsy February 2014

First look at my Ipsy bag!

IMG_4684

First look

First Item taken out is

IMG_4672

Eyetini Cream Eyeshadow and Base

Eyetini’s Cordial Cream Shadow and Eyeshadow Base. This color was perfect for me. Not only is purple my favorite color but I love wearing purple eyeshadow. As a base I’m not so sure. I tried this out the other day and it faded throughout the day so I won’t use this again as a base. I think I’ll stick with my Stila Paint Pot. But I was happy to try it.

IMG_4679

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes with Glue

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes and Eye Glue. I don’t really wear fake eyelashes. Thanks to my ancestors, I’ve blessed with really nice eyelashes that I’ve passed onto my babies! Every once in a while though I do like just to try out different pairs incase I want to wear them. This way I have an idea of how different pairs look on me.

IMG_4678

Zoya Nail Polish

Zoya Nail Polish. This is my second Zoya nail polish I’ve gotten. The first was a beautiful purple with pink glitter but it went on really thick. So when I got this pretty pink I was really excited but the same problem. It goes on really thick. Does anyone have any suggestions for applying Zoya nail polish?

IMG_4686

Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud

The website says…

“This 10-minute weekly treatment polishes and re-texturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start.”

Well since I’m late getting this post out I actually tried this out tonight. It burned but i tolerated it for the 10 minutes. My skin now feels really soft and smooth. If you can tolerate the burn I think its worth it. It wasn’t like anything I’ve ever used but one thing I do not like is the packaging. why not put it in bottles instead of this tear away packaging?

IMG_4673

Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini

Last item is Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini. I didn’t get to try this item out because It had a really bad odor of chemicals? I threw it away and emailed Ipsy Right away. By the next day Ipsy had emailed me that they shipped out a replacement product. So I’m happy that I get a new one because this is one of the items I was really excited about getting so I can’t wait for it to arrive.

IMG_4680

Ipsy February 2014

Well that’s it from here for February. March Spoilers are all ready out and bags should be shipping out next week!

As always Ipsy is only $10/month. If you’d like to sign up to become a member click here.

XOXO,

Birchbox January 2014

I almost wrote 2013 in the title. It’s going to take a while to get use to this but here we are. Birchbox January 2014. I totally forgot about this and it just showed up today which made it even better because usually I’m stalking the mailman. Haha So it went back to the usually non holiday box for the new year. Wah! Nah, I’m just kidding they were really similar anyways so it didn’t make any difference to me. So let’s get started…

This is my first subscription of the new year.  I love subscription boxes and Birchbox is one of my favorites so I was so excited to dive right in.

Birchbox jan 2014

The box in the box

Birchbox jan 2014

Birchbox is having a giveaway on Sundays for Birchbox subscribers only

The box in the box. And we are back to the standard normal, non-holiday box. But it’s ok because I care about what’s in the box. Also, I’ve been saving my boxes to do something fun and creative like I seen some one use them as picture frames and hung them up on the wall it was super cute and I really want to try it but I never have time with all these kids. Maybe when one of them starts school next year. Fingers crossed.

Ok so every Sunday for Birchbox subscribers only. You can enter every Sunday just go to http://www.birchbox.com/sundays.

Ok I tried for like a 1/2 hour to get that above address into a link you can click on but I failed. Sorry I’m still figuring out How everything works. If anyone has any advice on a great tutorial I could watch I would appreciate it.

Ok so now back to the good stuff.  Here is our first look together!

Birchbox jan 2014

First peek at January’s products.

First thing I see…

Birchbox jan 2014

Beauty Protector Full-size $21.95

I like the smell of this and the bottle is like rubberish not plastic, It’s pretty cool. I’m excited to try it out.

Birchbox jan 2014

Nail Rock $6.99

I didn’t like this stuff, we’ll let me be more clear. So it comes with…

Birchbox jan 2014

Nail Rock, Sequin…haha that’s what it’s called! I kept calling it glitter.

Clear nail polish and umm glitter, only for nails or I guess decorating just not your face. So no eyes or lips. Five years ago I might have enjoyed this but now I just see a big mess.  I only tried one nail and it was a complete fail. Not to mention it looked horrible on me. I don’t know. I thought they made these kits to make fun looking nails easier to do yourself at home but this was anything but that! I did really enjoy the clear nail polish though, It made my nails really shiny. But is this a base coat? Top coat? Or is this just a clear nail polish?

Birchbox jan 2014

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Lotion

I love Birchbox finds! And this stuff smells Ah-Mazing!!! it didn’t soak right into my skin but I do enjoy the scent.  The lotion is white and I don’t remember if it had SPF in it or not but I think it did.  That’s exactly how it rubs in, like your trying to rub SPF into your face so you don’t have any white spots, streaks. I went back and checked it didn’t say anything about having SPF and it reminded me of  washing your face with soap but not using enough water? If that makes sense? I don’t know if you got this let me know if that makes sense. Haha

Inside this box there were two things.  Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy $25-$90 and Inika Mineral Eyeshadow in Eternal Marine. Full size $20

Birchbox jan 2014

Inika Mineral Eyeshadow and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy

I’m sorry but I was disappointed with the sample size of Juicy Couture Perfume.

No seriously, I got the same size sample from Macy’s as a free gift for buying a jacket and some MAC makeup and having it shipped Along with a mans Hugo Boss Cologne, which smelled nice.  Even though. They sent this sample I wasn’t as upset because they did send a Birchbox find so in my mind the Juicy perfume is like the extra to me and I do like the smell so it’s a win win.  Just a small win win. Haha.

Birchbox jan 2014

Inika Mineral Eyeshadow Full size $20

Lastly I received Inika mineral eyeshadow in Eternal Marine.  I didn’t get a chance to use this yet either.

Swatch of Aqua Marine

Swatch of Aqua Marine

All in all I was really happy with this months Birchbox. Birchbox is $10/month. If you’d like to sign up here is the link…

Lots of Love!

*Ipsy December 2013*

I just got my Ipsy box yesterday!!! Ahhh can you believe it? I almost forgot because I’ve been occupied stalking my mailman for Christmas packages I’ve ordered. I’m proud to say I didn’t have to leave my house for one gift this season, so far. Ok so I’m not really proud of that but with four kids I’m grateful to UPS who always delivers to me. And I mean always they are on their sh*t!
So ok lets do this….

20131214-171854.jpg
Bam… The bag is pink. You can’t go wrong with pink. It’s a win right there! Hahah

20131214-172046.jpg

This month was Celebration. I feel like the month after such a epic month like November is hard to beat so I expect the. Next month to be eh? Which to me it was but I don’t mind because November was Epic. I feel like once a quarter the bags are epic so last month was it. But you should still sign up because there is a waiting list and….
1 it’s $10/month!
2 you get all this makeup for $10/month
3. You get a cute makeup bag!!!
4 you get discounts on the featured products that month!

So go sign up!!!!

Ipsy

Click the link above!

20131214-172903.jpg
Ooh, are you excited to see what’s in here?…

20131214-173008.jpg
First up NYX Lipstick, color Sunflower or 638 .
Sunflower through me off I ain’t gonna lie. But when I put it on it was really pretty. I love it, not like it, I love it!!!

20131214-173317.jpg

Next is Be A Bombshell

20131214-173331.jpg

Next is Be A Bombshell, The One Stick in the color flustered. It’s red with gold flex or sparkle in it.

20131214-173643.jpg
Next is a eyeshadow palette by Pop Beautyi received Smokin Hot.

20131214-173757.jpg
Now this top coat is pretty cool. I had my nails painted a green, light green shimmery color and with this on top it looked beautiful. My one complaint why is there a sticker on it with the brand name?

20131214-174004.jpg
And now to wrap up December the last item is Andrea Strip Lashes. It comes with adhesive, even better!

I thought this bag was pretty good, what did you guys get? Did you think this month was ok?

*Amy

Ipsy November 2013

>Let me tell you how stinkin’ excited I was to get my Ipsy Bag this month… I was pretty excited now let me tell you why. This month instead of the usual 4 to 5 items we got 6, yes you read that right 6! Bone-@ss!!! Did I mention that it comes in a super cute bag and only costs $10 a month. Yes that’s right, freakin’ awesome! Every month I get fun new make-up delivered right to me. I only wish I had come up with that idea, genius!!!! So I know everyone is soon excited to see what I got so let’s get on with it…

20131214-160244.jpg

I get excited every month seeing this pink bag!!!!!

Seriously look at this bag?!!!!! This is by far the best month and best bag I even love the handle or wrist slip! A lot of thought went into this bag and I appreciate it! This is the bag in the bag…

20131214-160508.jpg</

First item from Michelle Phan's line I received was a FULL SIZE mascara, black.

20131214-161007.jpg
So I am a month late getting this up so I’ve tried it. And I will upload December’s bag after this one. This mascara seemed good at first it did lengthing as claimed but nothing else. I personally didn’t care for this if anyone else got this item and you have different thoughts, let me know. I’d love to hear what you guys think. This is the brush…

br />
20131214-161504.jpg

Next up is Be A Bombshell! It’s a red color. I think Ipsy gave two colors, some got red and others got a purplish plum color I think.. I felt like this formula was really dry. To be honest I would not repurchase this in the full size even with a coupon!

20131214-162117.jpg

This next product is from Starlooks and it is stunning look at this sparkle!!! I love it. Again FULL SIZE!

20131214-162837.jpg

20131214-162900.jpg

My favorite product is right here GlamGlow! It’s not full size it’s skincare but I love this stuff!!!! It retails for like $69 for a full size jar so when ever I can some some that doesn’t cost that much, I do. This is basically the same sample size that you can buy at Sephora for $19. Same amount of product just a different container. If you haven’t tried this stuff yet you need to get down to Sephora and ask for a sample so that way you save some money and can try the product to see if you do like it, if not no harm no fowl! Hahah

Next, Nailtini color, Caviar Cocktail. I’m always happy with Nailtini Polishes. Some people complain but I like them.

20131214-163348.jpg

20131214-164012.jpg

Now last item, that’s 6 products this month! 5 full size I think? And 1 deluxe size. So back to the picture. This is from Pixi. I think it’s a highlighter? It doesn’t do it for me. It’s way to light to be a bronzer and I’ve tried it as a highlighter and it’s meh? Again not something in would go out and repurchase.

20131214-170307.jpg

If you would like to try Ipsy out please click the link and it will take you directly to sign up! http://www.ipsy.com/r/1jf7
All in all I think Novemeber was my favorite month? What do you guys think?
