Julep Lucky Mystery Box Review

In celebration of Saint Patrick's Day Julep released four mystery boxes. Since I am a sucker for mystery boxes I ordered the 100% Mystery Box, the Mystery Box with Shannon - It Girl, and a Major Mystery Add-On. Each mystery box was $24.99 and my total with the add-on came to $64.97. Let's just say it was a major moment of weakness.

BarkBox Review - March 2014

BarkBox is a monthly subscription service that focuses on products for your pups. Boxes are tailored to your dog's size; however you can alternate the size each month if you like. This was my original plan before I determined that the medium box actually works well for both of my dogs. BarkBox is $29/month for month by month, $24/month for a three month subscription, and $19/month for a six month subscription. 10% of the monthly subscription price is donated to organizations that help dogs in need.

GlossyBox Customer Service Review

When I received my February 2014 GlossyBox it was missing the Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil. Once I realized it was missing I contacted GlossyBox and after two days they e-mailed me back and let me know that they would send me a replacement item. They were very apologetic and kind. Eleven days later I received a package in the mail that included the Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil as well as a bonus. GlossyBox sent a deluxe sample of Sebastian Professional Color Ignite Multi Tone Conditioner.

For me dealing with customer service often means that something went wrong. I feel that it is important to praise good customer service, because receiving it is not a guarantee. I feel that GlossyBox went above and beyond in this situation and they deserve a huge thumbs up!

What are your customer service stories?

New Beauty Test Tube Review - March 2014

New Beauty Test Tube is a bi-monthly makeup and beauty subscription box. Every second month they send you a box that contains a tube filled with full sized and deluxe sized beauty samples, a bonus Beauty To-Go sample pack, and a subscription to New Beauty Magazine. As of yet I have not received the magazine, but I believe it is released quarterly. The box is $29.95 plus shipping and you are billed every other month. Shipping to South Carolina costs $8.95, which brings the total cost to $38.90. If anyone were to ask me if the price is worth it I would have to say, "Without a doubt!"

Wantable Accessories Review - March 2014

Wantable is a company that offers three different monthly subscription boxes. You can get the accessories box, makeup box, intimates box, or all three! Currently, I only subscribe to the accessories box, but I could easily be tempted to try them all.

Ipsy - March 2014 Review

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that focuses on makeup and beauty products. For $10 a month you get deluxe sized samples or full sized products and an adorable makeup bag. This is the same price as Birchbox, so it is hard not to compare the two. This month the theme was Destination Beauty, and everything had a bit of a vacation feel to it.

PALETA Cold-Pressed Organic Juice Detox Review

Due to long hours at work I have been falling back into horrible eating habits. I decided that a juice detox would be the perfect way to get myself back on track. Normally when I do a juice cleanse or detox it is with the intention to lose weight. Since that was not my goal this time I decided not to weigh before or after the two day detox.

JewelMint Welcome Mystery Box Review

JewelMint is a jewelry subscription service. You can start by ordering individual pieces or by purchasing one of their mystery boxes. Once you place an order with JewelMint you are automatically added to their monthly subscription service. Each month you are automatically charged $29.99. You have the option to shop their store and pick out any item you want, save the credit for a future purchase, or completely skip that month.

Beauty Box Five Review - March 2014

This was my first monthly box from Beauty Box 5, so I was not at all sure what to expect. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that delivers 5 beauty samples in each box. Products range from high end to everyday brands. A monthly subscription costs $12, but if you are willing to pay in advance you can get a year for $99.

POPSUGAR Must Have Review - March 2014 Box

My March POPSUGAR Must Have box arrived today. I have really been looking forward to this box since learning it would contain a Brokedown scarf. The POPSUGAR Must Have box costs $39.95 a month. If you are willing to pay for full year in advance you can save $50. So far each box value has been much higher than the purchase price.

GlossyBox Review - February 2014

My February GlossyBox arrived yesterday! Normally I would be disappointed to receive a February box in March, but since February is such a short month I'll let it slide. This was my first month of GlossyBox, so I was not totally sure what to expect. Despite the tardiness and a missing item I am still very pleased with this box.

Total Beauty Red Carpet Collection Review

Total Beauty does not offer a subscription service, but about once a month they release new collections. The most recent collection was the Red Carpet Collection. This was a very appropriate theme since it was released during awards season. The collection is $25 with free shipping, but if you use the code WINNER you can get it for $19. The box has over a $60 value.
