Free Product Coupons FTW

Just incase you don’t know FTW means FOR THE WIN!

I had a stack of free product coupons that expire in the next two weeks so I went and used them all in one go. Or so I thought, when I got home I realized I had missed a couple that had recently come in the mail. OOPS. I think I might of also misplaced a couple or two. I really need to start using these coupons as soon as they come.

Here is the regular Procter and Gamble brandSAMPLER box. It was really stuffed full this time.

P&G brandSAMPLER

There was also lots of coupons. More of the same from Beauty and Grooming box and more of the same from my Luxe Boxes! hah I really love these brandSAMPLER boxes – lots of great samples. I like the Sebastian Potion 9 – it makes my hair feel nice and soft. I don’t really care for the Olay face cream that I now have 4 tubes of, it is gritty and kinda burns. Who wants to use gritty face cream?

May 2012 GLOSSYBOX Canada Review

This is the first Glossybox I have received and WOW. Really impressed with this one. So impressed I immediately cancelled my Loose Button Luxe Box subscription. Yes the box did come late – it came June 2. But it was totally worth the wait and filled with products I would use. 3 of the products were full size and two were large sample sizes. Best of all, no crappy perfume samples or shampoo packages. There was nothing in this box I could of got free (HELLO LOOSE BUTTON, I AM TALKING TO YOU!!) Very impressed!

Right away I noticed the packaging seemed much better then both the Luxe and Glymm boxes. The box felt more solid and study the ribbon thicker and nicer. Giving it a more high end feel.

May 2012 GLOSSYBOX Canada

The May 2012 GLOSSYBOX was PACKED full of awesome items.

May 2012 GLOSSYBOX Canada Review

Curel Foot Cream FULL SIZE 100ml $3.99
Simple Eye Makeup Remover 56ml (full size 125ml $9.00)
Simple Facial Wash Gel 50ml (full size 150ml $9.99)
Pandora’s MakeUp Box Lipstick FULL SIZE $16.00
Sebastian Professional Volupt Shampoo FULL SIZE 250 ml $15.78

I use everything that was in this box on a daily basis – happy to finally get a box full of items I will use. The lipstick was packaged very cutely, although – a little too cute for the price. The packaging seems more targeted at pre-teen girls, but what pre-teen spends $16.00 on a lipstick? I must say it smells very good, like vanilla. A nice change for a lipstick. I haven’t tried it yet though.

Pandora's MakeUp Box Lipstick

The GLOSSYBOX subscription is slightly more then the others at $15 a month (includes tax and shipping) – but with a value of $45 I say it is more then worth it. Some of my other boxes has been worth more but filled with items I wouldn’t necessarily use (like small tubes of mega expensive anti wrinkle cream). But all this will get put to use. Looking forward to my next GLOSSYBOX.

I was trying to get myself narrowed down to just one beauty box a month, but with TOPBOX starting next month I am not sure how that is going to be possible.
