Best of the Box

I came home from my trip last week to a stack of subscription boxes.  It was like my birthday all over again.  I typically like to share here boxes that customize, since I know that people like to see the different box versions and options.  That, and there are plenty of sites out there that do a great job of showing you what’s in the boxes that are the same for everyone.

There were some really exciting products in my September boxes, though, so I just can’t hold back!

French Box

French Box is a new subscription box that just launched this month.  It features a variety of products made in France, which I’m really excited about.  They’re doing a special to get your first box for $14.  This month – among l’autre fantastique French items – I received this lipstick from Sothys which is perfect for fall.  And at a value of $28.50, this made the box more than worth it.  I’m always hesitant to spend that much on a lipstick if I don’t know that I’ll like it, so this was great to receive.

Eye Cream

I finally subscribed to Sample Society, the box partnered with Allue and BeautyBar.com.  It’s only $15 a month, and includes deluxe and full size products.  What got me was this eye cream!  First, I’m addicted to eye products.  I’ve read something about how your eyes really reveal your age, so if you don’t take care of that delicate area, you’ll look older then you really are.

The Restorsea eye cream retails for $85 – and yes, a full size product was included in this month’s box!  I’m overjoyed!

Finally, just when I though I couldn’t love PopSugar any more, they include this amazing Tilo scarf in the September box.  It is the perfect Fall accessory and will go with so many things!  I found a similar scarf online for $105, so again, just this one product was worth more that I paid for the box.

So fun, and I’m saving all the items I don’t use to add to my Christmas gifts this year.  People on my list are going to be receiving some really wonderful items!
