My January Starlooks Box! By Sanaa

My January Starlooks Box! By Sanaa

My January Starlooks Box! Last post of the day! I received my Starlooks box a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of the products after my experience with my Glymm bag. Unfortunately, through my New Year’s purge, I had to reevaluate by budget and decided that Starlooks also had to go. This was a hard decision for me, particularly in light of how great this box was, but the $20 monthly price tag (including shipping) was a little steep for me. We’ll see how I feel after my final box in March, and if I would like to resubscribe at that point. With that being said, let’s take a look at my wonderful box! This month’s box was a lovely mint green colour with a gold elastic ribbon. The inside was lined with a […]

My January Glymm Bag

My January Glymm Bag Another month, another Glymm bag. Initially, I was super excited to get my Glymm subscription. It was one of the most reasonably priced ones out there and the brands were definitely luxe and well sized. However, as time went on, I found myself less and less excited to get this sub, and in December I finally bit the bullet and cancelled. As a result, this will be my final Glymm bag. You can infer how excited I was about this bag by how few pictures I took of it. In order, here is what I received: 1. La Fresh Facial Cleansing Wipes (2): Nothing to write home about, but happy to have these on hand as I will be travelling in March and they will be useful for that. 2. 360 Skincare Lavender Mint Firming Serum: […]

My January Ipsy Bag

My January Ipsy Bag

My January Ipsy Bag Hi everyone! I’ve been so behind in posting my reviews, so it’s going to be a blitz of a day! I’m slowly cancelling my subs, and it has been a hard decision choosing which ones to keep (…. well, for some boxes more than others). Ipsy is a definite keeper for me – I’m always excited about most of the brands, and I’ve found the quality and sizes of the samples to be well worth the price paid (even with shipping to Canada). So here we go….   This month’s bag was in a navy blue colour, with a lighter blue and white star patterned lining. It was a cute bag, but I’ve received so many other ones that I prefer both from Ipsy as well as Glymm that this one was just average for me. […]

February 2013 Topbox: The Benefit Edition

It FINALLY arrived!!!! About a month ago topbox subscribers got a chance to bid on special topboxes and there was a Benefit box available , so naturally i jumped on the chance. Then I found out that it was a type of lottery to get the box you ask for, so I was a bit bummed. However, sitting in my mailbox today was a special topbox from Benefit EEEKKK!!!! It is a gorgeous pink celebrating the year of the snake.The box is fantastic and included an awesome assortment of little Benefit goodness.   Dandelion Wishes kit First thing I discovered was the Dandelion Wishes kit. It came with a gorgeous pink face powder and a matching corally/pinky lipgloss. I am saving this little duo for my trip to Edmonton, and will do a little review for you later 😉 Full […]

January 2013 Glymm Bag By Denise

January 2013 Glymm Bag My first Glymm bag of the year arrived this morning (finally) after being two and half weeks late. Needless to say, I was not happy about it since this bag also holds what was missing from my December bag. This is my second last bag so I’ll just pretend to be impressed. Haha. A little sneak. What are those things? Here are the products. If the December products weren’t there… I don’t even know how I will react to this. Let’s go to the December products first. This is Suncoat’s nail polish remover for their own water-based nail polishes. Now I have a slight problem. I don’t even have their nail polishes… Glymm, why would you send this to me? This is useless for me. It won’t work on regular nail polishes so I guess I’ll […]
