Beauty box Subscription - Monthly Gift for the Girl who has Everything!

Today I want to introduce you to a great gift idea, for yourself or anyone who is beauty obsessed ... the beauty box subscription

These are monthly deliveries of high-end deluxe samples (and sometimes full size products) One of the best ways to discover and try new beauty products. 

I have multiple subscriptions and look forward to receiving each of them every single month. To join, most will ask for your skin type, color and preferences so it is somewhat personalized. Starting at $10 a month these little treasures that arrive in your mailbox are alot of bang for your buck and just a whole lot of fun!

Here are two of my favorites:

Birchbox. $10 a month for women ($20 for men)
This is very consistent with great lifestyle choices along with high end brands and men can play along with their a box of their own. Sign up {HERE}. One of the 5 products I received last month was Stila's All over shimmer liquid luminizer, which is $20 in the stores just on it's own and I like it as much as the Nar's illuminator I was running low on. Birchbox also sent a few months back, a huge tube of cucumber peel mask that I am still using and have fallen in love with.

Ipsy is another subscription I love, designed by Michelle Phan and her stylists, also $10/month. Her glam bag arrives in bright pink foil and includes a different cute zippered makeup bag each month. Plus it seems to include a full size sample each month which is nice. Members can play along with tutorials online of how to use her picks.

October's glam bag was  Hello Bombshell themed and contained the following:
  • Be a Bombshell Eye Liner in Onxy. Full size. Value = $14 {I loved this and have reordered one}
  • What's Your TYpe Body Builder Mascara .11 oz. (.33 oz is $19) Value = $6.33
  • Mirenesse Lip Bomb Glossy Stain light pink. Full size. Value = $39
  • Pequi Oil hair treatment. Full size. Value = $12
  • Coastal Eye shadow sample 4. Single color $1.99. Total Value = 3.49

Grand total without adding in the adorable chevron bag is over $74!

Perfect for the girl who seems to have it all!
Plus, don't forget to add my new book of everything beauty, Face This: Real Advice from Real Models. Available {HERE} and on Amazon, Kindle, Nook and iTunes.
