❤️💋My beauty box Subscriptions ❤️💋

One of the best things I’ve discovered over the years is makeup subscription boxes!

A subscription box is a great way to try new things you wouldn’t normally buy and is a great way to build your makeup collection up without breaking the bank!

There are a few out there, I’ll start with the ones I am subscribed to and then I’ll get to the ones I’m considering. Keep in mind there are more! These are just the ones I have or that I’m considering!


$10.00 a month. 5 products a month. They ask questions to personalize your products. These are mostly trial size products but I sometimes get some full size. I feel like it’s worth it and that lately they have been stepping up their game. They always send a makeup bag and they’re always super cute! Here’s my February bag.

You can click this link to check it out.


$21 a month. You get 4 or 5 full-size items. Ranging from makeup and skincare, to beauty tools! Each box is valued at at least $100. I really love this one! My favorites are probably the face masks this month.

I am upgrading to Boxyluxe for an extra $28.99. You get an upgraded box every 3 months worth $250. Worth of products. They only charge you the extra every 3 months when you receive Boxyluxe and you get the $21 box in between. I will receive the first Boxyluxe box in March and I’ll update y’all!

Click here to check it out!

Now, those are the only ones I have at the moment. I am looking into some others I’ll post below.

Play by Sephora

$10 a month. 5 trial size products and a recyclable, reusable bag.

I’m not sure about this one. I already have Ipsy, it’s only trial size and I don’t get much use out of trial size. But for the price it isn’t bad.

Allure Beauty Box

$15 a month. But you can get the first month for $10. It’s all full and deluxe products and a reusable bag. I would get it because of the full size products. I’m not for sure of the value of the boxes but it says the February box is valued at $98.

Fit Fab Fun

Costs $49.99, 4 times a year. 8-10 full size products. You can customize some products or keep it a surprise. I don’t know a lot about this one. It’s not a makeup subscription and it has made me curious to see what I would get lol. But it’s advertised so much it’s kind of a turn off for me so I probably won’t get it. But I’m still curious lol.

Ok that’s all I have on subscription boxes for now. I LOVE getting subscription boxes because it’s like Christmas every month, I get to try new things I wouldn’t normally try and it’s at a discount price!

Let me know what subscription boxes you have! What boxes are you interested in? I’m always looking for a good deal.

I don’t wash my face

I don’t wash my face. Yep, you read that right, I have pretty sensitive skin, a lot of cleansers dry my face out or make me have some ugly bumps. So I quit the cleanser! Every night before bed and every morning I use face wipes instead. Once a week sometimes twice I will exfoliate. Exfoliating is extremely important! Other than that let me go through my daily skincare routine!

1. I wipe my face and neck with a face wipe to remove dirt or makeup or whatever there may be on my skin. I have tried so many wipes but the sensitive ones are my go to!

Equate sensitive from Walmart

2. Then I massage Bio-oil on my face and neck. I know, I know….. your sick of hearing about it but it is just THAT good! It doesn’t leave me greasy and it has worked wonders for my skin.

My fave! Got it at Walmart

3. After my Bio-oil soaks in I put my Garnier on my face and neck. It’s an amazing gel cream. Not greasy at all! I also have the pink brand for dry skin.

After all of this I spritz a little Mario Badescu on my face. Usually I do the lavender at night.

And that’s it! It’s seems like a lot but it doesn’t take but a few minutes and it keeps me hydrated! I find that keeping a routine is what keeps my skin happy and healthy! I do change it up from time to time and some days I use an eye cream but for now these are my go to skincare products.

If anyone has skincare products they recommend leave them in the comments, I just may have to check them out because I love trying new things!

Thanks for checking me out! Xoxo JamieB

Oh how things change

When I was a teen I wasn’t really into makeup. I mean, I liked it. I can’t tell you what foundation I used, I’m pretty sure I applied it with my fingers on the fly. I NEVER filled in my brows, or even got them done. I wore makeup most days though, and always had a makeup bag with me. My favorite shadow was Shimmering Sands by Covergirl, that I do remember. It always seemed to make my eyes pop! I still like those colors! I need to get some and do a throwback!

Covergirl Shimmering Sands

Anyways, it wasn’t until my late twenties or early thirties that I began to take a serious interest in makeup and skin care products. It blew my mind how many amazing products there were out there! I was like “what the heck is primer” and “omg so this is what highlight is”. It’s so funny looking back! Idk how I even applied makeup before!

Now I have so may things I love! I think my number one right now is either

The Sultry pallet by Anastasia Beverly Hills

Or the ColourPop Fame palette

It is so funny how things change. What is your then VS your now go to products?
