Sephora Perks

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated the Perks List for Sephora and it looks like Sephora has changed their coding…I can no longer link to the perks the way I was before. I will keep working on this and see if I can figure out how to make these linkable.

Glossybox January 2016

IMAG4594This is my first year long subscription to Glossybox after my last year long ended in February 2015. I’ve purchased over 50 Glossyboxes in the last 3 years and they are one of my favorite subscriptions. That said, I feel like the brand recognition has slipped in the last year and I wish they would work more with well known brands in addition to the brands we have been seeing.



Not all of this box will work for me, the highest valued item was the Diamond Heart illuminating primer from Emite Make Up, but with my oily skin I doubt I will enjoy this. The brand is one Glossybox has sent out in the past. I received a black eyeshadow in the Nov. 2013 Glossybox and LOVED IT, but we also received an eyelash curler in Aug. 2013 and I did NOT love that. The eyeshadow the blackest shadow I own and if the primer is anywhere close to that same quality it will be a great item to gift.


Up next is the Minus 417 Foot Nourshing Cream, I have received this brand in other subscriptions and have never been wowed…same goes for this item. I used it overnight with socks and while it did do a good job of making my feet soft and not leaking through the socks, I don’t feel like it was anything special. I’ll use it up, but wouldn’t repurchase it for $18.


I also tried the Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse, again a brand I’m unfamiliar with… The rinse is something to use after you shampoo and condition to clarify your scalp and hair. I didn’t love the scent, but if you’re a fan of citrus then you might love this. Unfortunately, I didn’t love the results….mostly because I didn’t see any difference. This price point on the full sized item is only $10, so if you are a fan of the scent, it might be worth giving a chance to work. *Update I was able to get 5 uses out of this sample! Too bad I didn’t see any difference in my hair or scalp.


When I saw the spoiler for this next one it was a very small photo and I thought it was from the Ciate brand. I was so bummed when I saw the brand was MeMeMe! This lip crayon has that cheap, waxy smell…I haven’t swatched it, so maybe it’s amazing, but I will save it for the spring/summer since it’s a peachy pink color.


This last item really made the box for me, Royal Apothic body cream! First, I love this brands packaging and style. Second, this is a Full Size item with a price tag of $14! Glossybox sent out a lip butter from this brand in the Feb. 2015 and the packaging was amazing on that product as well. I’m ashamed to admit I never opened the lip butter, but it is on my list of items to try…Glossybox can keep sending out Royal Apothic products and I won’t complain, happy to have it!

Overall not the greatest box ever, but I’m happy with the value. I think the range of product and curation of this box was good. Here’s to a year if Glossybox, fingers crossed!



BeautyBoxJunkie 2016

Sorry I’ve been AWOL for the last few months!! Amazingly you guys still stop by and look around, thank you for that!  I’ve always been active on beauty forums and have met so many wonderful people with the same hardcore love of beauty. I’ll admit because of this I don’t spend as much time as I’d like here. I’m going to try to be more balanced and not let the cobwebs collect on this little venue!!!

My plan for this year is to post more subscription box reviews, do a few brand spotlights, keep up on the Sephora point perks and generally just post more. I know Sephora 100 point perks is a big draw and I plan to add 250 and 500 point perks to that list. I was also thinking of keeping a active Sephora promo code list…let me know if that is something you guys would like to see. I’m currently subbed to Glossybox and Birchbox for all of 2016, so expect to see those, plus any subs I add along the way.

I’m so grateful to everyone who stops by my little corner of the internet and who shares my love of beauty, subscriptions and deals! Here’s to 2016, may it bring us everything our makeup collection is missing!

Sephora 100pt Perks Updated 9/12/2015

Every month Sephora showcases 100 point perks. Once they are showcased, they disappear and are almost impossible to find, but did you know that many are still available?!?!?! This post is to help link you (and me) to all the 100 point perks, past and present. I will do my best to keep this list up to date, but feel free to let me know if one is out of stock or if there is one I’m missing.
