Valentine’s Day Deals!

My husband doesn’t usually buy me a present for holidays like V-day, he just tells me to pick something up at the store for myself.  Some women may be offended by the lack of effort, but I’d prefer to get what I want and spend the same amount of money, rather than him coming home with a stuffed teddy bear from CVS. So all of these crazy V-day deals are perfect for people like me!

If you’re looking for a last minute present or just want to spoil yourself, here’s a list of what I’ve found today:

-Bath and Body Works is offering a free Diamond Mist spray ($16 value) with any purchase. You can pick up a little mini lotion or even some soap for a few bucks. All you have to do is go to their Facebook page, click Get Offer then print the email.

-Benefit Cosmetics is giving a free eye and brow kit with any $75 purchase. Use code BEMINE at checkout.

Any other deals anyone wants to share out there?

Glossybox January 2014 Review

I’m so happy, guys! I wasn’t expecting Glossybox for another week or so since they announced their delay, but it arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I signed up for Glossybox with the LivingSocial deal, but I would have paid full price for this box. The Beautyblender + cleanser is worth $20, so in essence – you’re getting the Beautyblender with 4 other products for free.  Here’s the first look at my box:

And the pamphlet that explains all the products:

At first glance, the products are smaller sized than last month’s box, but I think that this was still a good box. There’s a variety of makeup, skincare, bath and beauty products, which is why I enjoy Glossybox so much.

My favorite product is probably everyone’s favorite. The Beautyblender. I’ve been dying to get one since every Youtube blogger refers to it as a holy grail product. I did try the Ulta brand one and thought it was about the same as a makeup sponge, but I’m told that the Ulta one pails in comparison to this one. I can’t wait to give it a try. I also love that they gave us the “pure” white one. Who really wants any extra dyes on their sponge?

My second favorite product is the Bellapierre Mineral blush. The color is really light and sheer that it will make an awesome addition to my collection. The size is pretty decent too. Since I only use a little bit at a time, this will last me awhile.

I take bubble baths every night, so any bubble bath or body wash that promises “foaming” action gets me really excited. I already used all of my body wash from last month’s box, so this will be used in a week. My only complaint is that I wish the bottle was bigger. Balance Me Super Toning Body wash:

I’ve gotten pretty into skincare lately, so Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is pretty awesome for me too. This is paraben-free and is supposed to lock in moisture for 48-hours. Sign me up!

Every beauty box has some kind of “meh” or “not for me” product in it, and the Sea Salt Texturising spray is that for me. It’s supposed to give you a beachy/tousled hair look, but my hair is pretty flat.

Overall, I’m really happy with January’s box. There’s 4 products that I really love and am excited to try and only 1 that’s going into the trade pile. I believe I paid about $13 for this box with the LivingSocial deal and promo code, so I definitely got my money’s worth. I have one more month with my voucher, then I have to decide if I want to continue with it and pay full price.

Did you get January’s Glossybox? What did you think of it? Also, have you ever tried a Beautyblender? Is it as amazing as people say it is?
