Citrus Lane Mystery Box!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to show you guys what I received in my Citrus Lane Mystery Box.  This box was $29.00 + Shipping & handling of $4.95 so the box came to $33.95.  If you guys would like to try out Citrus Lane monthly subscription just click here and you can get your first box 50% off.

This boxed was bigger then my regular subscription boxes and came packed full.

-Jumbo Knob Puzzle from Melissa & Doug.  This puzzle has the pictures under the pieces so it will be easier for the babies to put together.  The retail price is $9.99.

-Octopus Opposites by Stella Blackstone and Stephanie Bauer.  I like when they put books in the boxes.  This is a hard cover book and the retail price is $7.99.

-Catch Plate from Boon.  This is interesting.  This is not your average baby plate, this is a toddler plate with a spill catcher attached.  The retail price is $8.49.

-Rainbow Stacker by Melissa & Doug.  This looks like your classic wooden stacker toy.  The retail price is $7.99.

-Snack Bowls from Green Eats.  I've received these bowls in green a few months back in one of the monthly boxes, so I like that I received a different color.  The retail price of the bowls is $6.99.

-Beginner Puzzle Safari Babies from Petit Collage.  This comes with 4 different puzzles.  Very cute.  It retails for $14.00.

-Zootensils Fork & Spoon from Skip Hop.  These are very cute.  They have the Soft-grip sides on the bottom for easy handling.  The retail price is $6.00.

This was a great mystery box.  I like everything that came inside and my daughter will use everything.  I paid $33.95 for the box and received almost $62.00 worth of products.

Truth & Dare Julep Mystery Box!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to show you guys what I received in my Julep Mystery Box.  I have not purchased a Julep mystery box in a while now since I have so much nail polish but this time they had a few different options to choose from and one of the options came with the Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover and since I really like this product I decided to just the box and see what else came inside.  The cost of this box was $24.99 + Tax which came to $26.74, but it is supposed to come with a value of at least $100 or more.

If you are not signed up for Julep and you would like to try it out click here and use the code HELLOYOU at checkout to get a free 5-piece gift with a value of $80.00.

-Color Fan.  This is an $8.00 value.

-Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover.  This is the reason why I picked this box.  I like how this works a lot so having a spare is good.  The retail value of this is $18.00.

-Cleanup Tool.  I don't have this item so I was happy to see this in the box.  I can't seem to find this on the website so I'm not sure what the price of this item is.  I am going to say its probably the same price as the cuticle pusher which is $14.00.

-The color of this is Valerie.  This looks really dark in the picture so ou can't really see how pretty it is.  Its a nice teal color with iridescent microglitter.  I don't have anything like this so this will be nice to add to my collection.  The retail value is $14.00.

-The color is Brielle.  This is a pretty deep orange color.  The retail price is $14.00.

-The color is called Tatiana.  This is a orange color which has microglitter.  This is not one of my favorite colors.  I think I might only use this for halloween or something.    The retail value is $14.00.

-The color is called Fiore.  This is a chocolate brown color.  The retail value is $14.00.

This last color I received for free for entering a coupon code they had at that time.  So I decided to choose this color.
-The color name is Ramona.  This is very pretty.  Its a nice lavender/pink color.  The retail value is $14.00.

So all in all everything came out to about $96.00.  The box is ok for me.  All the colors in the mystery box were very dark so I won't be using them right now, I'll just wait for fall/winter to use them.

July Glossy Box!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to show you guys what I received in my July Glossy Box.  Glossy Box is a monthly box subscription that is $21.00 per month.  You get 5 beauty products in each box.

I always love the boxes that come with the glossy box subscription because you can reuse them for other things.

-Mitchell and Peach Body Cream.  I can't pin point the smell to this cream.  The smell is not bad but not great either.  I received a 1.4 fl oz sample and the full size is $61.00/6.08 oz.

-Philip B PH Restorative Detangling Toning Mist.  I'm happy to see this in the box since I have been wanting to try this out.  I haven't had the chance to yet but I will soon.  Its supposed to leave your hair shining and frizz-free, so hopefully this will work great.  I received a 2 fl oz sample and the full size is $24.00/4.23 fl oz.

-Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm.  This smells really nice.  This is not one of those sticky lip balms which is nice.  I've used it a few times already and I really like it.  The sample that I received is .20 oz and the full size is $12.00/.35 oz.

-GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment.  Again I have not had a chance to try this out but will soon.  The sample that I received is .5fl oz and the full size is $69.00/1.7 oz.

-Skin Inc Custom-Blended Anti-Aging Serum.  Ive used this 2 times already and I like so far.  This one is full size and the retail price is $45.00/.34 fl oz.  This product alone covered the cost of the box.

So thats all that came in the July Glossy Box.  This was a good box for me since I will use everything inside.

July Style Box!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would liker to show you guys The Style Box for July.  This is a monthly subscription box that is $39.95 + $9.95 Shipping.

This month is all about Summer Metallics.

-Metallic Melie Maven Bag.  This clutch is a nice size.  I like the fact that it has a few different pockets in the inside so it will be easier to find something you need.  It also has a chain so you don't have to use it as a clutch if you don't want to or you can use it both ways.  Inside the information card they are showing this clutch in 3 other colors, a royal blue, an bright pink and also a silver.  The royal blue looks really nice.  So I'm sure they are sending out different colors to people.  I'm happy with the color that I received since it will go with a lot.  The retail is $100.00.

-Fit-To-Flare Lashes.  I don't know if I would ever use these since I don't have the time to.  The retail of the lashes is $2.00.

-"Drop Of Gold" Bead Earrings.  These are really cute and will go with almost everything.  They are just your basic gold bead earrings.  The retail of the earrings is $10.00.

-Bombshell Jane Body Chain Necklace.  I'm not sure about using this as a body chain necklace so I will be using this as a regular necklace.  Its a basic gold chain.  The retail is $20.00.

-Oscar De La Renta Espirit D'oscar Summer Scent.  This is a roller ball perfume.  The perfume smells ok, not bad.  The retail is $25.00.

July Citrus Lane!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to show you guys what I received in my July Citrus Lane Box.  Citrus Lane is a monthly kids subscription box.  Each box is $25.00 but if you sign up here you can get your first box for 50% off.

-From the company Oogaa I received this Pink Truck Spoon.  This is a Silicone Baby Spoon so its good for babies that are teething.  Its soft for babies gums, its safe silicone and is BPA free.  I can't seem to find this product on the website yet but I'm sure its the same price as all the other spoons.  The retail price is $5.99.

-From Ammo Books I received Counting in the Garden.  This is a cute book.  It helps kids learn to count from 1-12.  The retail price is $14.95.

-I have from Plum Organics a Mighty 4 Pouch.  This is made from Sweet Potato, Blueberry, Millet and Greek Yogurt.  I have not given this to my daughter yet so I'm not sure if she will like this or not. The combination sounds a little weird if you ask me.  The retail of this is $2.39.

-From Plan Toys is My First Phone.  A few weeks ago they sent out an e-mail that if we wanted to we would be able to pick one of the toys in this months box.  The choices were My First Phone or My First Camera.  I choose My first Camera so I have not idea why I received this in the box.  I thought maybe they ran out of the camera's or something but I checked the website and they have the cameras for people to buy.  I think I might write to Citrus Lane and find out why I received this phone and not the camera.  The retail of this phone is $10.00.

-From Pur-Lisse I received Pur-Protect SPF 30.  I'm happy to see this in the box.  I have a full size bottle of this cream and I like it so a smaller size is nice so I can keep it in my bag.  This is a .5 oz sample.

Overall I think this box was ok.  I would have liked the box better if they would have sent the camera that I picked, but everything else was fine.

July Birchbox!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Today I would like to show you guys what I received in my July Birchbox.  Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that is only $10.00 a month or $110.00 yearly.  You will get 4-5 beauty samples in each box that they tailor to your profile.

This month Birchbox partnered with Women's Health Magazine, and included a postcard for a one-year free subscription to women's health magazine (valued at $9.99), which was a nice added item.

Cute box.

-Real Chemistry, Luminous 3-Minute Peel.  This was just ok.  Not one of my favorite products that I have received from them.  This sample that I received is .17fl oz.

-Whish, Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Acai Grapfruit.  This is a BB Exclusive.  This smells really nice.  The size I received is a .75 fl oz.

-Balance Me, Wonder Eye Cream.  I have so many eye creams so I'm not sure when I will have a chance to try this out.  The sample size that I received is a .2fl oz.

-Coastal Scents, Palette Sampler in Sunset.

-100% Pure, Honey Cream Wash Gingerade.   On the information card this shows that it is a beauty extra.  Its nice that they put 2 samples of this in the box but it would have been a little better if they would have put a small bottle instead.  I don't really like getting foil samples in my boxes.

This month I feel my box was just ok.  It wasn't anything too exciting about it.
