Well the new year is here. I promised myself now that all the commotion has died down of getting my wonderful daughter back in June that I would get back to blogging. At least once a month.
So my first item of business is cleaning house. My most favorite Sub box had been Beauty Army. After several, and I mean several months of repeat samples I was getting annoyed. The thing I loved about them was that for $12 a month you could choose 6 of your own samples from 9. Every month they hyped up specific new items that I could not wait to try. Then for some reason all that stopped. I never knew what to expect when sample day arrived. Well for months the selection was almost identical. I contacted customer service about this and was told that they liked to offer customers repeat samples in case they liked an item they could try it again. I’m all for that but I got lash cards 4 times!! I detest lash cards!! I even changed my beauty profile each month hoping my selections would be different in sheer desperation after a few months of the same items but that did not work either.
So should I stay or should I go? It’s heartbreaking to leave a sub that you once really loved because you almost feel like you are cheating on them. Now I do belong to multiple subs. As a matter of fact, I re-subbed to Birchbox earlier this year after they made some changes and I have to say so far so good.
I made the choice to un-sub after December’s box. I had gotten Agave oil one to many times and decided enough was enough. I did just learn that Beauty Army has made some changes and has added some great brands to their list of companies they work with so I will keep an eye on the next few month’s of boxes via facebook, instagram and twitter.
Who knows, maybe if I like what I see I will come back. They did introduce me to one of my now most favorite makeup brands Whip Hand Cosmetics. If you have never heard of them check them out. Made in Detriot, these high pigmented high impact colors pack alot of wow!
Let’s see what 2014 brings for this beauty lover. Any brands you love? Any you hate? Let me know. I love to hear about it. I think my next post may be about my mascara issues the past few months. Do you have a brand you absoultely can’t live without? I would love to try it!
