YOU BEAUTY BOX // APRIL 2016 – Natural and Organic // REVIEW AND UNBOXING!

Hi guys

It’s beauty box time again!   If you’re new to the You Beauty Box, you can find out about how the subscription works, how you can choose some of your own samples and the price in my post here.  The theme for the April box was Natural and Organic.  I was quite excited to hear that, as I love trying those kinds of brands!

GLOSSYBOX // BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOX //APRIL 2016 // UNBOXING

Hi guys

I’m much more on time with my Glossybox review this month!  Go me!

If you’re not a regular reader, I’ll quickly go over how Glossybox works.  It’s a monthly beauty subscription box, so you sign up for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months to get one box per month.  The box will include five samples/products – they are always a surprise, as you don’t choose what you receive.  The box costs £13.25 per month for the month-to-month plan, but can be as little as £11.75 if you are willing to commit for a whole year.  If you decide to sign up, you can use this link which will help me collect points but there is absolutely no pressure to use it.  If you would prefer not to, simply google Glossybox and sign up there!

Lip Monthly - Are The Rumours True? Lip Monthly Speak out!

Lip Monthly Rumours – LM Finally Speak Out!

Hi guys

This is a follow-on post from one I wrote a few days ago.  If you haven’t already read that one, this won’t make much sense, so have a quick read and I’ll wait here for you!  As I mentioned in that post, Lip Monthly subscription service is often discussed on beauty groups and in the makeup-loving world!  I subscribed to them for around six months and personally had NO issues whatsoever, but my interest was peaked by all the stories I was hearing, so I decided to do some digging.

Lip Monthly - Are The Rumours True? Lip Monthly Speak out!

In response to my previous post, a few people commented with their own personal experiences.  Rather than reproduce them here, just click into my initial post and scroll down to the comments at the bottom to see what has been said.

After my previous post was published, Lip Monthly got in contact with me by email to discuss the content.  Their email was very friendly, reasonable and in no way confrontational.  They wanted to tell me some of the reasons behind what has been happening, and were happy for me to share this information publicly.  Rather than paraphrase everything they said, I am going to paste the majority of the email below:

BIRCHBOX x RIFLE PAPER CO // APRIL 2016 // REVIEW AND UNBOXING!

Hi guys

As if it’s the APRIL Birchbox already….at risk of sounding 80 years old, where is this year disappearing to?!  As usual, if you’re a new reader, you can find out all about how the subscription works and the cost in this post.  Otherwise, stick with me and we’ll get right into it!

If you’re tempted to sign up, and use this link, you will be credited £5 of points to be spent in the Birchbox online shop.  I will also be credited with points for referring you.  Of course there is no pressure to do this, you can just Google them and sign up that way, but of course you won’t get the £5 free points yourself.  Just wanted to be totally upfront about that!:)

Lip Monthly Subscription – Are The Rumours True?

[UPDATE ON 14 APR 16! Lip Monthly have contacted me addressing all these issues in great detail. Find that post here!]

Hey guys

Although I have stopped getting the Lip Monthly subscription, it is something that is often discussed on the various beauty groups I am in on Facebook.  This subscription service seems to have a lot of rumours flying around online, and sadly quite a few people have had negative experiences with them.

I first subscribed to Lip Monthly in August 2015.  Pop over to this post and have a quick read about how it works, cost and shipping to the UK… I’ll wait here for you! 🙂  This beauty bag caught my eye as it is almost solely lip products.  Lip products are my favourite kind of makeup products as I love experimenting with bright coloured lipsticks and different finishes and brands, so it seemed the ideal subscription service for me.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they ship to the UK, and shipping costs aren’t even high ($5)!

Glossybox // Beauty Subscription Box // March 2016 // Unboxing

Hi guys

Sorry I’m sooo late with this one!  I usually like to get my beauty subscription box posts up as soon as possible, so that you can find out what was in them on time.  Unfortunately I’ve been a bit behind this month as I’ve been struggling health-wise.

As you’ve probably already seen a few posts about the March Glossybox, I’m not going to do my usual really detailed review.  I don’t want to repeat stuff you’ve already seen!  But in case you haven’t, or you just wondered what I thought about this month’s box, here’s a look at what was in the box, and how I felt about it.

YOU BEAUTY BOX // March 2016 // REVIEW AND UNBOXING!

Hi guys!

I received my March You Beauty box about a week ago but I’ve been really poorly, so sorry for the delay in getting this post up.  I hope it was worth waiting for 🙂

You Beauty Box March 2016

You can find out about how the subscription works, how you can choose some of your own samples and the price in my post here.  The theme for the March box was ‘the best of British’, with all the samples being home-grown brands.  I like this idea as it’s always nice to support local brands and businesses.

So let’s get straight into it – here’s what came in this month’s box!
