Subscription Share Birchbox And Women’s Health July 2014!!!!

 

Birchbox and Allure July 006

I will admit that when Birchbox teams up with magazines I LOVE IT!! I was particularly happy this month because they started doing a thing where you get to PICK one of your samples. Because I get 2 boxes a  month I figured that I would get one of each (although honestly I regret not getting 2 polishes)

Anyways Birchbox once again teamed up with Women’s Health and sent out the boxes for July!

In my first box I got a sample of the Balance Me Wonder Under Eye cream:

Birchbox and Allure July 018

This is a decent sized sample for eye cream, I haven’t used it much yet, but I like the smell so far!

 

Then I got this sample in BOTH of my boxes this month, a 2 set of the Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask. I like the smell but the packaging is a little interesting for a hair mask sample.

I got the LAQA & Co Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Menatour --Birchbox and Allure July 013

My Choice of the Month for this box, was a Ruffian nail polish from the Rapture Collection – in the Color Relic which is a pretty silvery shade, and I got an extra of a polish removing towel let.

I also got a sample of the Suki foaming cleanser I LOVE the way this smells like lemon candy!!

For my second box, I did participate in the Birchbox Plus program, occasionally they will send out an email where you can get an additional item added on to you birchbox for a discounted price. As I have been doing a lot of things that keep me away from phone chargers AND I plan on traveling in the month of August I got the Triple C Designs Power Card: Birchbox says : “No bigger than a credit card,this rechargeable battery will help you power up your gadgets no matter where you are and works for your phone, iPod, portable speakers, and more.

Birchbox and Allure July 022

I will say it is super cute, BUT it only charges my phone about halfway before it is out of juice, which is good but not great.

I also got the Protect & treat mask in this box as well.

My choice for box number 2 was the Cynthia Rowley Beauty creamy lip stain in Sugar. Birchbox and Allure July 027

it is a pretty my lips but better pink, but it tastes and smells like sunscreen, so not sure how much I’ll actually use it.

I got a NaoBay Body radiance lotion- Birchbox and Allure July 024

it’s lotion.

And a Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel – I am excited for this, because while I doubt it does more than make pretty balls of skin, I do love trying these peels out! Birchbox and Allure July 025

My beauty Extra in this box is going to be used next month the night before/morning of M’s wedding! Birchbox and Allure July 026

So what did you get in your Birchbox this month? I’d love to know!!

Loot Crate July 2014

 

Today is Kensei’s Loot Crate unboxing, (no that is not an affiliate link, I don’t think this company does them, although if they ask how you heard about them and you do sign up please mention me!! )
Loot Crate is a company that sends out a monthly box (like Birchbox and Ipsy,) But it is geek centered!!! For $13.37 + S&H a month they send you a box filled with toys, collectibles and candy!

July’s #LootCrate theme is Villains!!! This box was RIGHT up Kensei’s ally!!

My first FAVORITE thing about this month’s Loot Crate is simply the packaging they set it in!

It’s all decorated like they have villains graffiti all over it!!

When you open the box the shirt immediately catches my eye!

It’s a Joki shirt!! According to #LootCrate they created this loot crate exclusive created by the artist who designs their covers each month Zack Finfrock. Kensei wanted to wear the shirt right away, ignore the look on his face, he has issues with me taking pictures.

The he got a Comic book called Rocket Raccoon, just in case you don’t have a clue who Rocket Raccoon is, he’s the raccoon in the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie!!  He also got 2 kick butt posters, one of Joker and one of Harley Quinn.  Sadly I didn’t get pictures of these.

The next thing in the box is super cool, I mean come on Deadpool Socks!!!

Darth Vader Key Chain!

There was an issue with this, when we opened the key chain Vader was broken off, this made me sad, I did contact Loot Crate but haven’t heard anything back yet!

Finally we got a dvd of dc villains and a bowser magnet!

And another thing I adored about the box, when we emptied everything out, I saw this!

I mean come on!! You have to love it!
