Causebox Winter 2019/2020 Review and a 20% Off Coupon Code

By Kimberly

My Winter 2019/2020 Causebox review is ready. The magazine that accompanied the box says Good news Winter 2020. Causebox also lists the current season on its dashboard as winter 2020. Between those two things and receiving this in 2020, I am pretty certain this is the Causebox Winter 2020 Box. That said, I am pretty sure this was meant to be the Causebox Winter 2019 Box. There was a Winter 2018 Box. This would have been the Winter 2019 Box. To Get around that, I am labeling this as box the Causebox 2019 and 2020 Winter Box.

FabuFinds: The Best Finished Products Fall 2019

By Kimberly

After I review my Empty Products, I take extra time to go over the standouts. It is a round-up for the best of the best. Only products that seem like they’re made for me make FabuFind status, so there are a lot of items I love that never make it. These are items I would repurchase, even without a deal. Items I am loving but cannot finish any time soon make it into my Core Collection (favorites). To eventually spotlight all FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. An item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. If something gets demoted from FabuFind status (formula changes, skin changes, finding something better, etc), I will note the change in the original article I mentioned it in. There are four products I consider FabuFinds in my Fall 2019 Empties that I have not discussed yet.

Birchbox Limited Edition Box Hello Hygge Review

This is my Birchbox Limited Edition Box Hello Hygee review. I purchased the How to Hygee last year and had no problem paying full price for it. As this one did not appeal to me as much, I waited to purchase it until I could get a discount. 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. Better boxes sell out quickly, but the ones that linger will occasionally pop up in the sale section for 30% off. Aces sometimes get 40% off on sale items. If it stays on sale long enough, it could even reach 50% off. Predicting which ones will sell out is not always easy so I buy the ones I really want close to the release date. If you’re on the fence because of price, wait it out.

Birchbox Limited Edition Floral Favorites Box Review

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 Campaign derma e New Packaging and Reviews for Hydrating Day Creme and Hydrating Night Cream

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.

Get Free Samples Volume Thirteen

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.
