Subscription Satelite: Glossy Box April 2022

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I know I was going to do my Battle of the Notetakers post but my first beauty box arrived!

Glossy Box April 2022

So, my Glossy Box arrive today and I came home to it on my doorstep. Some cities do mail on Sundays so I sometimes get some of my packages on Sundays. Heck, my first Chrome Bokk arrived while being at Holiday Matsuri. Anyways, this box contains five items that can range from deluxe to full size items and they can be independent to luxury. This is $21 a month, but you can get a discount code for your first box if you see a few YouTube influencers. My first box had a code all thanks to Theresa is Dead. This box is okay but I did laugh at one item I got because of something I did this morning, let’s get to the items.

I was laughing when I saw the scrunchies because this morning I went to get my haircut to a soft pixie bob. My hair has been uneven for years and I tried to cut some uneven tips but didn’t work. I will wear them when I have longer hair but now my hair has short curls. I am excited about the lash primer though since it helps my lashes from giving my eyes an allergic reaction with every mascara I wear. I will see how it works since collagen is good for skin and hair. While with the serum from Suwasu, I placed it on my bathroom counter since I enjoy serums. I did like the toner from Suwasu I got in Ipsy not too long ago, which is to try another product. I will see how this works after knowing the toner was soothing. I did see an eyeliner pencil from Loretzy which is in black. I know I have a ton of black liners and have gotten them all thanks to other subscriptions over time. I never tried this brand but will give them a chance. And of course, the lotion from Thisworks. I never heard of this brand and it looks full size to me instead of travel. I think this will be great for my dry skin. It claims that the lavender is supposed to help with calming to sleep. I hope so since I did try one of those pillow sprays but it kept me awake.

That is it for this post. I think this month’s box was okay, not to the point of disappointing. I think the idea of having some refreshments for spring does make sense with how most people refresh their look or makeup with new items. I will see how these items go. I am waiting for Allure and my Ipsy bags, I will be doing my notetakers post, stay tuned!

Subscription Satelite: Glossy Box March 2022

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with my final subscription box!

Glossy Box March 2022

Final box is my Glossy Box and man, it was a wait. It shipped later than last month’s box but I was glad to receive it this past week and man I was happy for what’s in my box. This box is $21 a month and you get a mix of full and deluxe size items ranging from prestige to indie and it comes nicely wrapped in a box. Let’s see what I got!

Okay, I need to ask, why did they put an MLM product in this box? I tried searching but nothing appeared. I am against MLM products and how they take advantage of women, including blind women who join, I don’t think I want to use this product and support them again since my experience with their shadows and blush. I know it’s a moisturizer that can help but I am not sure if I want to use it on my face since the product can cause adverse effects if not made well or made with ingredients not meant for sensitive skin. It is supposed to be cooling. Should I or shouldn’t I? I am still using my Rich Bitch moisturizer from Glam Bag X. Moving onto the other items since I am excited about those the most since they are not from MLMs. I’m happy that a hand cream is in this box since my hands do get dry due to the hand washing I have been doing for a long time.I never heard of Merci Handy before so this will be a new brand for me to try out. The Luxie Brush was a great addition to the box due to the Estate shadow quad but when I felt it, it felt more like a blush brush over a shadow brush. I think this would be too big for my eyes so I will use it as a blush brush. I did get excited about the Estate shadow quad the most since I have this brand in Ipsy and I saw there were two different ones to get in this box, I don’t know which one I got but I can’t wait to use it. And of course, Model Co. is back in this box but with a highlighting shimmer whip. I remembered getting the ones from E. L. F. but haven’t used those as much since I prefer the powder ones years ago, except I started using them again and have used the stick ones and of course did enjoy the one from About Face in my Glam Bag Plus this month.  I will definitely try this out since I like to use a powder highlight on top to give more glow and keep it in place. I did link it to the champagne shade, not sure what color they really sent me so it’s a good link to see what item it is at least.

That’s it for this box, I will use the other four products since I’m afraid of the Avon moisturizer. I will probably tweet later to say if I do use the moisturizer or not. What’s next? I will finally do the post about the BrailleNote Touch Plus vs. the Braille Sense 6! Stay tuned!

Subscription Satelite: Glossy Box February 2022

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! Sorry for the wait on doing my subscription posts, some are a little late and I was doing homework and I did get diagnosed with Bronchitis last Sunday. I’m fine and I know last Sunday was a bit controversial with that post, so hoping this would be better.

Glossy Box February 2022

So, my Glossy Box was the first to arrive this month and didn’t know because RJ placed it on top of our air fryer without telling me. He was using it on our bar to make chicken tenders one night and didn’t point out that Glossy Box was also there. I need to ask him to tell me when that happens since it can come early or late. Anyways, this box is $21 a month and you get six items in this box that range between deluxe and full-size. They can be skin care, hair care, even tools  along with makeup. I think this is a good replacement for BoxyCharm in my opinion since I am enjoying what I received this far. WHat did I get for February? Let’s see!

Natura MuruMuru Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner

First up is a shampoo and conditioner duo from Natura and it’s their Muru Muru Replenishing Duo. These are deluxe size bottles which I prefer instead of tubes since I can wrap a rubber band around the conditioner. These contain Muru Muru Butter that helps with getting anything out and return hair to its shiny self. These two clean, moisturize and prevent breakage which I love. My hair does get damaged and I am trying to grow it out, I have been using castor oil and feel it’s not working, trying to get back into the Hair Vitamins. ANyways, I will try these two out and see how they work on my hair. I heard good things about Muru Muru Butter in a lot of different skin and hair products. Let’s see how this works. The deluxe set is $4.90 and the full-size duo is around $49.

Ersa Skin Care Nourishing Cream

Next up is a product from Erso Skin Care. This is a new brand to me and I’m glad to try something from them even in deluxe size. This is a moisturizer that helps skin with Niacinamide and Vitamin A and Seramides. This sounds like a good combination and I’m glad to get a new moisturizer to try. I can see it will help with making my skin plump and supple. I don’t see anything about sensitive skin since that is something I look for in skin care the most. I hope I don’t break out since with things such as Seramides and Niacinamide my skin has been doing good. You can get a deluxe size for $27 and a full-size for $90. I would stick with the deluxe size, thank you very much!

CAAB Cosmetics SweetHeart Lipstick

I haven’t seen these guys in so long since I left Ipsy back in 2016 and re-joined back in 2018 and have not seen them anywhere within the past four years. I guess they stopped working with them? Don’t know. I am glad to see them again and in a different box. This is a lipstick that gives a subtle look to the lips and it is supposed to be also moisturizing, however the tip before this product says to apply lip balm, which I do anyways with my lovely Lip Smackers! I know, they are mostly for kids but I do love them since they are the most moisturizing for my lips. I will see how this goes since I haven’t used this brand in so long and glad to see they are somewhere in the Box Universe! This retails for $18.

NCLA Nails Nail Polish in Fresh Linen and Back to Black

Next up is a nail polish from NCLA Nails. I remembered these guys also being in BoxyCharm and I rarely have seen a bottle of polish in there ever since I returned to them in 2019 and canceled last year, when there was a rumor floating around that they would bring nail polish back. I am glad to see this here though. You get either Fresh Linen which is a white or Back to Black which is black. Going a little gothic aren’t we? I think I may receive Fresh Linen which I could use with my red crackle polish and other dark crackle colors if I get anything more with those from EBay or OPI. I don’t see a retail box but can’t wait to use this on my nails!

Dita Litera Tanning Lotion

I am not going to use this! I don’t self-tan guys! I guess toss!

Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks

Final item is an eye mask at the bottom of my box and it just says Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks. Hold on! To the internet!Okay, they are from a brand called Rodiel and I found them on AMazon which are pretty cheap for a single eye mask. Okay, these contain Dragon’s BLood and Hyaluronic Acid to help with keeping moisture on the under eyes which makes sense. I will have to try these out since I do like the idea of having something to help hydrate the skin and Hyaluronic Acid does work well with my skin. These retail for $6.99 for a set!

So, this box, the only disappointment is the Self-Tanning Lotion since I do not self-tan at all. When you see me in our convention videos, that is my skin tone you see, the light-medium girl you see. I don’t think self-tanning is necessary and don’t know why it exists and tanning on the beach is already dangerous as is so I don’t suggest that either. Anyways, the other items I am happy about which makes me happy since I do love hair care items and I know I will give a good use to the shampoo and conditioner samples, while the lipstick I will definitely use after not getting CAAB in years. The nail polish is a definite yes when I use it since I love nail polish! Let’s see how it goes! Next is the Allure Beauty Box!

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new subscription box!

Glossy Box January 2022

At the end of December I subscribed to a new box called Glossy Box. I saw a video by Theresa is Dead about this box and she had a code and decided to use it since I liked what she got in it. I did like the box and decided to subscribe. When I subscribed, I got the December box with the discount but got the January one as well. This box contains six items and you get a combination of full and deluxe size and it ranges between well-known and independent brands! This box is also $21 a month. I know that was the price of BoxyCharm before but I feel like I get better items in this box and I hope I don’t get bored. Let’s see what January holds!

Bloom Day Dreamer Gentle Face Wash

First is a product by Bloom and it’s a face wash. I love getting face washes and this is a great start for a new box for me since we are still in winter. This face wash can be used in the morning and it doesn’t lather up as much so it won’t strip skin of its natural oils while using it. This has plant extracts to help with moisture. I can’t wait to try this out in the mornings since I am almost out of my Tony Moly AM Gel Cleanser and a new tube is on its way. I also use my cleanser with my Goldfaden cleansing machine. This product retails for $18.

Julep Love Your Skin Facial Wipes

Next up is a product from Julep Beauty. I enjoy using makeup wipes since they do help with easier cleansing on my face. I understand the issue that it can stretch skin but it doesn’t do that much with mysskin, I don’t feel it tug like most people would. Let’s see what these wipes are and what they contain. These contain olive oil and they help clean off makeup and impurities gently and also helps tone the skin. I hear gt5 fv4d olive oil is not the best for skin but it is good for the diet! I know, I am a nerd but I will give these a chance though. I still have the wipes I used at RangerStop Atlanta and still use them to this day since I did get a two pack of them. I will have to see how these go though, plus they look like they sold out on Julip’s website so right now I will say these do retail for $20. I think Ulta carries these so check there.

Codex Antucomplex Serum

Next up is a serum from Codex. I am glad to get a deluxe sample to try this time and I prefer deluxe samples of skin care items since it would give me a better idea of what the product is like.  This serum helps ease the complexion with brightening ingredients. I will definitely try this out since I enjoy using serums before my facial oil and helps with moisture. I will see how this goes. This retails for $75.

Aftrspa Black Marble Roller

Next up is a facial roller from Aftrspa. I had never heard of this brand before and was glad to receive them in this box. I do have a jade roller and find that it is great to spread my skin care into my skin, even use the smaller side for my under eyes as well. Rollers are also known for improved circulation, I also have heard some people put these in the fridge to help with puffiness under the eyes. This retails for $16.

Philip Kingsley Bond Builder

SNext item is an interesting sounding item. This is a split end treatment that can be used on any heart type. THis helps with sealing up any split ends. I was happy about this due to Lush discontinuing Shine So Bright which made me sad. I’m glad to try this product even though it is a deluxe size item. Unfortunately, it is sold on the website but it does retail for $35.Subscription Satelite: Glossy Box 2022

Invisibobble Bun Tool Ice Ice Baby

Sorry for no link but this is a tool that helps with creating hair buns. My hair is too short for these things and I do not like hair buns because of how much they hurt. Next!

Le Mini Macaron Foot Mask

Final item is a foot mask from Le Mini Macaron. If I read these steps correctly, they are socks that have the essence soaked within and you just wait ten to fifteen minutes and then rub it in. The mask contains lavender and other oils to moisturize the feet. I may use this after wearing one of my pairs of work shoes because they tend to hurt after wearing those, especially my Mary Jane style shoes which I got a year ago. I will have to see how this goes. This retails for $4.

That is the last of my items. I think I like this box so far. Yes, I can’t use the bun tool but I can use the other items. I’m excited about the split end treatment the most since Lush had to discontinue one of my favorite items again and that did help with split ends. I can’t wait to see what February holds since this has been a nice start to the new year. Next, I will be returning to the Controversy Quadrant with a post I feel that I need to talk about and that is about how visually impaired people should not join MLMs.
