P&G Gift Bag Giveaway Winner

I was super excited to find one of my sweepstakes wins at my door today (Plus a note telling me I have two packages from FedEx waiting at the Office). I won this P&G Sweepstakes earlier this month and am glad that the bag was filled with some really great items. Watch my unboxing video below:

May 2013 Popsugar Must Have Box

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)

The Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box which costs $35 per month, BUT all the products you get are full size and the boxes are always worth more than $100! If you love getting surprises than this box is for you!.

The items in the box:

1.) Kooringal Giselle Mid Brim Hat: Not a bad looking hat, and my boyfriend also thinks it looks good on me. Great item to have in the Must Have Box. Value: $27.99
2.) The Modern Margarita. This is a package of five Margarita Mixes. I never have people over so I would never use this, but it is a nice gift item so I will give it to someone who can use it. Value: $8.99
3.) Questions I ask when I want to talk about myself deck: Like I stated previously, I never have people over my house therefore I will get no use of this. I will try to sell it. $13.45
4.) The Original Beauty Blender and Belender Cleanser: These are my favorite items in the box! I have always wanted a Beauty Blender and now I have one AND a cleanser for it! $23.99
5.) Pacifica Natural Color Quench Lip Tint: I was excited for this but I have now tried it and honestly it does not make my lips tinted at all. Major fail. $7
5.) Charm & Chain: Huge disappointment to have this as an item. This is really a "coupon" instead of "gift card" since you can not use it on shipping and most of the items are over $30 anyway. I want cool items in my boxes, not gift codes. $30 (But I am not counting it in my total)
5.) Way Better Snacks: Not too excited to try these, but I will anyway. $2.99

This box was better than last month but still not as good as previous months. Considering I did not count the "Promotional Gift Card" as a good enough item to even account for in the total the Total value of the box: $84.41. Therefore, this is the lowest valued box yet. If you want to include the promotional code in your total than the box may not be as low for you but for me it is just Popsugar trying to make us fork out more money to one of their partner companies- why didn't they just send us an item from Charm & Chain instead?

May 2013 Conscious Box

I won a three month Subscription to Conscious Box. I just received my first box in the mail and it was packed with a lot of stuff! Conscious Box costs $19.95 a month and all of the products are safe and natural. You can sign up here and can choose between a Classic Subscription, a Vegan Subscription, or a Gluten Free Subscription.

Here is my unboxing video for the May Box:

Here is a quick look at all the goodies I received the the box:

So while there are a few things I will try in this box, I do not really enjoy natural foods or supplements so I will not purchase the box after my subscription is up. However, it is nice to try out some of the stuff and give some away to my friends and family while I have the chance the enjoy the subscription for free. I have seen unboxing videos for previous boxes which had more food items and beauty items and my box had a lot of supplement items (I do not take supplements) so I hope that my future boxes have more beauty and food items.

May 2013 Birchbox Review & Unboxing

View my Unboxing Video and then come back and read my post :)

A typical Birchbox box. Not my favorite, but not my least.

Inside the box is:

1.) Cargo Water Resistant Blush. This is a good size sample and the color is so pretty! Already love this product. Full size, $26

2.)  Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face. I would be more excited for this if it were not so small of a sample size. I will use it but it is so small I really can not form an opinion on it. Full size, $32

3.) Isaac Mizrahi Fabulous Isaac Mizrahi Eau de Parfum. Here we go with the perfume samples again. Will they ever learn?  Full Size, $20-69

4.) Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive. I have never tried a peel before but I hear good things about them. I am excited to try this and will use it tonight. A decent size sample. Full Size, $39

5.) The lifestyle extra this month is Guayusa Tea I will probably not use this since I do not like flavored teas, I only drink black. This is not Birchbox's fault though. For people who enjoy this type of product there are four teabags included so it is a pretty good extra!  Full Size, $7

Is this box worth $10: Possibly. The sample sizes are very small this time around and the perfume does not count for anything really. So it may add up to just below or above $10.
Is this box worth my $10: Eh. Here is the thing. I would not return this box to get my $10 back if I could. So I guess it is worth my $10, but just by a hair. 

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own and I was not asked, nor do I get compensation, to review the box or these items.
