Beauty Bar Box vs. Birchbox

As you might remember (since I haven't posted anything about these in awhile) I receive a Birchbox each month.  It's a service where you pay a monthly fee of $10 for a monthly box of samples.  Well I heard about Beauty Bar Box basically the same thing but for $15 a month and I thought I would give it a try.  Well ... it was a bit disappointing.

a) Vincent Longo Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil

b) Borghese Tono Body Cream

c) vbeautévbeaute Eye Never Nourishing Repair Eye Creme

d) Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20

e) Sisley-Paris Hydra Globa Intense Anti-Aging Hydration
(sorry the print on the box didn't show up)

I guess it was just disappointing because I've already received (d) from Birchbox months ago and nothing seemed that great.  I mean a lip pencil...okay who cares and some creams doesn't seem like it is worth more than Birchbox.  
This Month's Box
This is my June box...okay nothing super spectacular
but I do love those band-aids.  


My June box had lip stain, bronzer, facial moisturizer with sunscreen and brightening masks.  The band-aids were a "treat" which each box comes with a special treat which sometimes is the best thing in the box.  

With Birchbox you receive points for reviewing the products and points when you order stuff. 100 points equals $10 and you get 10 points for each item you review.  Recently I cashed in 300 points and basically got a full sized product for free and only had to pay shipping.  

With Beauty Bar Box you receive a $15 off code for ordering stuff so each month you could save money if you want to purchase full size products you received and you can also rate the products with stars but you don't accumulate points so ... why rate stuff??

I think I will give Beauty Bar one more try ... if I think the next box is lame I am sticking with Birchbox.  Speaking of Birchbox my July box should be waiting for me in my mailbox.  I need to check my mail!!!

Have you tried Beauty Bar Box?
What did you get?  Anything good?
Do you like it over Birchbox and what do you think of Birchbox?

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
