ELLE Canada: Beauty Box

Look what I got in the mail! 
The ELLE Canada Beauty Box!

This box was full of must haves for Fall 2013.

In my box:
  • Cover girl Clump Crush Mascara (I recently finished mine- Good to get a fresh bottle)
  • Pantene Expert Collection Shampoo and Conditioner sample
  • Coupon for a shaver + products
  • Crest 3D white Strips sample - Two hour express
  • Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Resolution Complex sample

The October issue of ELLE Canada is available for the special price of $2.99.

Check out GlossyBox Canada!

My Glossybox Canada Ambassador Kit

Beauty boxes are taking over! The most recent box to enter Canada is GlossyBox. I remember drooling over the UK boxes and awaiting their arrival here.

GlossyBox is similar to other boxes:
  • Stay up to date with current trends/discover new brands.
  • Free delivery.
  • Five exciting product samples each month.
It differs with:
  • $15 a month price tag.
Overall, I noticed that this box is the highest priced out there (in Canada) but after looking at what you can get in the box I totally know why.

For example: Full-sized items such as WELLA Ocean Spritz in the June box retails for $16.99 and Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 is $15.99. One item basically covers the price of the box. Consider the other four items a bonus!

The idea of a 6th surprise item in your box is a great deal as well.

If you love trying out new products and you're on a budget, I would recommend this box. I also want to add that you can cancel your GLOSSYBOX subscription at any time within 14 days prior to delivery. I hate putting stuff like that out there but I have had a bad experience with an American box and  it's good to know your opinions. Whether or not you use it..

NewBeauty - TestTube™ Canadian blog exclusive!

A few weeks ago I asked "What is the best beauty box in USA?" on twitter. Nine people out of ten ladies said NewBeauty - TestTube™! I'm excited to share the goodies that I received in my NewBeauty box. Before we get started I will let you all know that this is a USA ONLY box. I'm giving you all the exclusive on my Canadian blog.
TestTube is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind sampling program enabling members the opportunity to try a variety of the best beauty products before investing in them, and then share their feedback about the products. Every three months, for just $29.95 (plus shipping and handling), subscribers receive a TestTube filled with deluxe and full-size samples of coveted, high-performance luxury products and the latest issue of NewBeauty magazine. TestTube subscribers also receive videoemails, demonstrating how to achieve optimal results with the products.

 Let me start off by saying I am so amazed! I've never seen anything like it. We have monthly box subscriptions in Canada but we don't get magazines or anything similar to NewBeauty. I am a big fan of magazines. I couldn't get over how thick this magazine was. There was a lot of great content to read.


Moroccan oil glimmer shine spray
This is actually my second bottle of the spray. I love it! Very lightweight and not greasy.
$24.00 value.

Dr.Brandt pores no more anti aging mattifying lotion
This weekend I actually mixed this with a bit of a foundation. *Thumbs up*
$60 value.

Garner skin renew dark spot corrector
I suffer from light pigmentation on my cheeks. I'm excited to full try out this product for eight weeks. Hopefully, I will see some progress soon.
$17 value.

Hydroxatone 90 second wrinkle reducer
I did not try out this product because I do not have any wrinkles at the moment.
$79.95 value

Lashfood natural eyelash conditioner
This is the first natural lash conditioner that I have heard of. This baby should last me  four to five months.
$95 value

Ahava extreme day cream
Very rich cream with antioxidants. A little goes a long way.
$68 value.

Kerstin florian foot balm
Perfect for the cold winters. I think I might just keep this in my purse.
$32 value

Kneipp herbal bath
I like this because the scent is not overbearing. One capful is all you need.
$19 value

$50 dollars spa look gift card

Overall I thought that this was a great value for your money. Expecially if you're into trying out high end products at a fixed low price. I admit that some products were not for me "wrinkle reducer" but that is the pro of beauty boxes. Share the contents with your mom, sister, aunt or whoever. If I lived in America I would definitely be a subscriber of NewBeauty - TestTube™.

Have you tried NewBeauty - TestTube™  before?
If not, what do you think of subscription boxes that come three times a year? Love? Hate it?
