Subscription Box Deals: PopSugar, New Beauty TestTube

Yay! I love holidays because it means LOTS of subscription box deals and goodies to go around!

PopSugar MustHave is offering $10 off a subscription, which would make it $29.95! I learned with PSMH codes that if you’re a current subscriber, make sure to CANCEL your current subscription before buying a new one with the code. I read online where a girl was a current subscriber, used a code and ended up with two boxes. Their customer service said too bad, so sad. What does a girl need two boxes for? Anyway… the code is BOX10 and it’s valid through 2/25. I just got my February box in the mail and will be posting the review soon!

New Beauty TestTube is offering 30% off for new subscriptions! There’s no promo code to enter, just click this direct link and it will offer you the price of $20.95. I’ve never received a TestTube but I may give it a shot with this awesome promo code.

-Sadly, there’s no Glossybox discount code, but if you just have to have the box anyway, use the code HEARTS to get a free lipstick. I haven’t been overly enthused by the spoilers yet this month, but I’ve loved the past two GB’s that I’ve received. (offer expires 2/16)

Birchbox teamed up with US Weekly this month and I’m hoping my box rocks. If you sign up by using the code USWEEKLY100, you get 100 bonus points to use in their shop, which is essentially $10. You’ll also receive 12 issues of US Weekly which is a $10 value also.

This is non-subscription box deal related, but Bath and Body Works has a sale on their mason jar candles for $7 (regularly $12.50) Their spring candles smell divine and they burn so well! My favorites are the Raspberry Peach Macaroon and the Watermelon Lemonade. They also have a few codes, so pick whichever one makes your deal the best.

-CUPID25 ($1 shipping for purchases over $25)
-RMN20FEB (20% off)
-S141770 (Save $10 off a $30 purchase)
-F131769 (Save 20% off a $25 purchase) expires 2/23
-ALOHA20 (Save 20% off any online purchase) expires 5/4

-Another non-subscription box deal, but way too good of a deal to pass up. Get a free Smashbox eyeliner/mascara duo ($21 value) with any $10 purchase to beauty.com. You have to pay shipping, but if you have a Shoprunner account, you’ll get free shipping. No code required, but click this link to get the deal. All you have to do is add $10 worth of merchandise to your cart and the mascara will be added to your cart automatically. (I think my favorite thing that’s on sale on their website right now is loose pigments and nail polish by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.)

Whew! Now I feel like I need to go on a shopping spree with all these awesome deals circulating. Which one will you be picking up today?

Glossybox – February 2014 Spoiler Alert

I was reading the Glossybox thread on Makeuptalk.com today and was so surprised to find out that there are people out there that still haven’t received their January boxes. I was one of the lucky ones, I guess, since I received mine weeks ago. 

Glossybox is my favorite subscription box product-wise, but this January debacle is sort of making me scratch my head about the company itself. First off, I haven’t received a single announcement email from them. The only emails I receive are the ones stating that my box has shipped. I don’t receive spoilers nor did I receive an email about the delay. I also tried checking my Junk folder and they didn’t wind up there either. 

If anyone has read my blog and ended up one of the frustrated customers out there, then I’m truly sorry. I still love Glossybox but I want to make sure to stay honest here by giving the pros and cons. Here’s to hoping February is better.

On to the spoiler!  Continue reading

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:

1-IMG_2437

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.

1-IMG_2446

 

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?

Glossybox – January 2014 Update

Hey guys! I know my Glossybox posts are the most popular, so a lot of you out have mad amounts of love for it like I do.

I read about some people getting an email warning of a delay, however I didn’t get the email at all. I thought maybe it was only going to be some of the boxes. I sent them a private message on Facebook to confirm whether all boxes are delayed or if only a few people were impacted. They confirmed to me that all boxes will be delayed until 1/21.

Here’s the post, in case you missed it:

These kinds of things happen so I’m not mad at Glossybox at all. Just reeeeally bummed that I won’t have my box for awhile.

 

Subscription Box Deal: Glossybox Promo Code

I have a few box reviews that I’m working on and hope to have up later this week, but I wanted to share a quick deal going on right now with Glossybox. It’s quickly becoming my favorite beauty box, especially with the promise of a BeautyBlender in this month’s box. (Check out my December 2013 Glossybox review here.) Glossybox has a new 10% off promo code right now: GBCHIEF. This makes the box $18.90 and don’t forget to use Ebates first to get an additional $2.75 in cashback. After the promo code and Ebates, your January box would be $16.15.  If you don’t have an Ebates account, make sure to sign up here. (referral link)

I don’t have any idea how long this code will last, so take advantage of the deal as soon as you can.  This has now expired.

Big thanks to the ladies over at Makeuptalk.com for sharing this code in the forums!

Subscription Box Deals – Cult Cosmetics & Hello Fresh

Good morning everyone! It’s -12 here today, so my husband and I are stuck inside with a Netflix marathon. I’m not complaining but I’ve had lots of time to browse the web for deals.

My first suggestion to anyone that found my page by searching “subscription box coupon codes” is to go to the website of the box that you’re interested in and sign up for their emails. Even when I can’t find a coupon code online for certain boxes, I’ve been pleasantly surprised to receive unique codes in my inbox to use. A few girls have mentioned that they received promo codes today from Glossybox for 15% off, which would make your first box $17.85. Some companies may not have mass codes that can be found online but they do send out one-time use codes for new customers.

I’ve also found a few good deals that I wanted to share. Both are companies that I haven’t tried yet, but I’m very interested in.

Cult Cosmetics has a nail polish subscription box and is offering their Blackbox for a penny (plus shipping) with the promo code PENNYPOLISH — This brings the total down to $5.01 for 3 nail polishes, making them $1.67 each.

Next up, Hello Fresh is a gourmet delivery service. Their boxes provide all the ingredients you need to prepare a complete meal at home. I’ve been wanting to try this out but the meal prices seem a little high for me. TODAY ONLY, they are offering 50% off for all new customers. With the coupon code, it would cost you $34.50 for 3 meals for two people, so $5.75 per meal per person.

Glossybox January 2014 – Spoiler alert!

I think I’ve said this before but spoilers are almost as good as the boxes themselves!

Last month was my first month with Glossybox and I was really impressed with my box. The products were all different from what I’ve received in other beauty boxes and I felt this box had a lot of value.

Today, Glossybox released their first January 2014 spoiler on Instagram. Please read on if you want to be spoiled:
