Thanks to a fellow melanoma blogger (Katie @ Prettyinpale.org)... I was introduced to this little thing called subscription boxes! After zelboraf and surgery and Ipi I was feeling pretty run down (hair falling out, itchy crazy skin, nails looking awful, etc). So as part of my New Years resolution - I decided to be a bit more girly and try new things. Subscription boxes are a great way to do that without a large cost. Most are around $10/month and sometimes even include full size products to try.
I decided to try birchbox and Ipsy. I also recently just added Julep which is just for nails. I've gotten a few months of them already but totally behind in blogging about them! Tonight I received the march box and totally digging some of the products in it!
First are 3 samples of Caldrea body lotions. In scents of: tea tree lime, aloe water apricot, and coconut fig. These will go well with my new aromatherapy oils I got yesterday. More about those in another blog (trying to find my balance between modern day medicine and holistic therapies).
Make: dual-phase eye makeup remover. This company looks great too in that they donate one-third of their sales to charity! It also included some lipstick!
Sarge normat: meta revive dry shampoo. The first time I tried dry shampoos was when I had surgery back in oct/nov of 2010. It was a good alternative when I wasn't able to was my hair as often due to surgery sights. Plus they are a great refresher to have around when traveling!
So as you can see - lots of fun things to try! Can't wait to see what ipsy sends this month! Oh and I recently saw they have one for dogs - bark box... May have to check that out for my spoiled mutts!
