Fall 2016 Walmart Beauty Box

Finally, Fall is here! It’s my favorite time of the year. I just feel like everything is better in Fall…weather, clothes, Starbucks and makeup!  My Walmart beauty box came at the beginning of October and I like this one better than the one that I got over the summer. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, when you subscribe you’ll receive a box every three months that contains products that are relevant to the season and your needs. You’ll only pay $5 every three months! So here’s what was inside the Fall 2016 box….

  1. Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies Nature's Bounty, Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies, Nature's Bounty Gummies, Vitamins, Health & Beauty, Fall 2016 Walmart Beauty Box

  7. Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey Body LotionFall 2016 Walmart Beauty Box, Burt's Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion
  8. Simple Micellar Cleansing WaterFall 2016 Walmart Beauty Box, Simple Micellar Cleansing Water, Walmart

I’m really happy with this box, the summer box had a lot of stuff that I didn’t use. I actually like and will use every one of these products. I’ve love Dove, Burt’s Bees, and Clean & Clear. I’m such a beauty box/subscription addict, lol! If you’re interested in the Walmart Beauty Box, click here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Play! By Sephora(Sept.2016)

I recently subscribed to Play! by Sephora because I had cancelled two other beauty subscriptions that I had been receiving so, I figured I had to replace at least one of them…right? I received my first bag last month and even though I’m all kinds of late, I still wanted to share. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it’s an online, monthly subscription for $10(billed monthly). You get five samples from Sephora…six including the bonus fragrance, a little booklet with info about the product samples, tips/tricks and beauty advice and also a pass that you can use in Sephora for a free tutorial. Yes please!!

September Essence Beauty Box

Fall in to Glam with Black Radiance Beauty!

Hi guys! I received my September box from Essence a few weeks ago so I’m really late with this post.  It was their final box as they have discontinued the subscription. As a token of appreciation they added an extra gift so I’ll start with that.

Since Essence has discontinued their beauty boxes and I cancelled my subscriptions to Allure and Lip Monthly, that left me with only Glossy Box and the WalMart beauty box(seasonal), so I went ahead and signed up for Play! by Sephora. I have the September bag from Sephora, October’s bag should be here soon so I’m going to one post for both of those and I just got my fall WalMart box today so I’ll be sharing that soon too.

Kisses!

  6. BVLGARI Omnia Coral This fruity-floral scented fragrance blends tropical hibiscus and pomegranate. $82BVLGARI, BLVGARI OMNIA Coral, BVLGARI Perfume, Allure Beauty, Allure Beauty Box, September 2016 Allure Beauty Box

I already love the BVLGARI perfume. It’s the perfect mix of fruity and floral, it’s not at all too strong or overpowering. I hate when perfumes actually smell good but they’re so strong that they give me a headache. I also like the nail polish. I’ve been doing more neutral/nude colors lately so I’ll be using this color next time I get my nails done. As for the other products, I’m only excited to try the Grande Primer and the Physiolift.  I might test out the Pur-lisse cleanser and the Supergoop Lip Screen…later on…maybe, lol! So that’s it, I hope you all have a great week!
