When Birchbox released its new Floral Favorites Limited Edition Box, I knew I was going to get and review it. The challenge is always waiting for the right promo code to come along while hoping the box does not sell out before it does. Some boxes sit in the shop for months and others sale out quickly. It seems the ones I want the most are the ones that sell out the fastest, so I clearly have great taste. Limited Edition Boxes are my favorite items to purchase from Birchbox. These are a mixture of full and sample sized items that usually fit a specific box theme. All boxes have a value far greater than the cost so they are a great deal when the items you want to keep exceed the value of what you’re paying.
Brandbacker is a community open to social media influencers. People who actively post product reviews on: blogs, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook apply for campaigns they want to take part in. Applying is an easy process that takes less than a minute. Brands review the user’s profile and social reach and decide if the member is a good fit for the campaign. In exchange for free products, reviewers share their thoughts with their social networks. I love testing new products and sharing my reviews, so this program is perfect for me. The only caveat is brands get to review posts before they go live, so articles on products that do not perform could be killed before the article even gets published. If a brand kills my article for an unfavorable review, I will not work with that brand in the future. As always, free products do not affect my review.
Nothing beats completely free offers. Sometimes, there really is no catch to obtaining free items. You just have to know where to look and how to find them. Welcome to the thirteenth installment of items I’ve received for free. Past articles feature different freebies. The offers at times come in emails. Sometimes, you will see them on a blog or the direct brand’s website. Other times, you can find free offers on social media or even through snail mail. My Free Samples Page provides more information on sample opportunities. Offers can at times come by phone, but I never answer numbers I do not recognize. I will miss out on any that come that way.
These boxes are back in stock. Target releases seasonal beauty boxes. These are not subscription boxes and always sell out the day they release, usually in the first few hours. A new box released today and is still available. Shipping is always free, and the box contents announce as soon as the box goes on sale. Most items are sample sized, but there is almost always a full-size item or two inside. Value is usually at least triple the cost. The only variation in box content is on color items. Unless the color is specifically stated in the description, colors will vary. Boxes usually range in price from $5 to $10. The Simply Radiant and Fresh & Fabulous Boxes are $7 each.
The latest limited edition Whole Foods Beauty Bag to kick off the launch of Whole Foods Market Beauty Week launched this morning. It will be available in store only until the 20th, unless it sells out sooner. Some stores have already sold out, so contact your store before heading over. The Hello Beauty bag, made by Riji Green, retail for $15. The 2015 press release for the event goes over the reason behind the event, which is to promote Riji Green, a company trying to end human trafficking and expand the ever-growing beauty Department at Whole Foods.
