Craftly Subscription Box June 2016 Review and Coupon

Craftly is a new subscription that sends unique lifestyle products every month. You might think it has to do with crafts and art but it doesn't! It's actually a fun way to get a box of "you'll never guess what" in your mailbox. I had no idea what to expect and ended up with a big grin once I pawed through the contents.
This is not a sample subscription. You'll get full size, high quality items ranging from handcrafted goods from independent artists or snacks and tech products from small businesses and brands. The variety is very wide ranging and unisex so everyone can get a dose of happy mail!

The Cost: $25/month

What You Get:  Every month, you'll receive a delivery of 4-5 full and deluxe size items in art, tech, snacks, grooming products, home goods and more!

Allure Beauty Box June 2016 Review plus $5 Off!

The Allure Beauty Box has been a subscription I'm loathe to give up. I like the brands, product variety and the price of this subscription. All that  makes it feel a little more luxe than Birchbox or Ipsy but with the new Sephora Play box, Allure is getting a run for it's money. I can't decide which I'd give up if I needed to only get one. Based on this month's box, I have to admit, Sephora would be the keeper.

Don't let that deter you though! Sephora Play is still on a waitlist and the Allure Beauty Box still has all the things I like to find in a beauty subscription.

The Cost: $15/month

What You Get: Five or more deluxe-size beauty samples from a curated mix of skin, hair, and makeup products as well as fragrance.

Glossybox June 2016 Beauty Box Subscription Review and Coupon

The June 2016 Glossybox has a Tony Awards theme. It has a specially designed box and includes products for getting you "red carpet ready." It would take a lot more than what showed up in my Glossybox for that to happen! :) While I always love getting the special box designs, the contents of my box were very, very ho-hum.
You'll also receive a fold out information card which I forgot to snap a photo of. It gives a little information about each product along with some beauty tips. It's not super indepth and I wish it gave a little more information on how to actually use some of the products.

The Cost: $21/month.

What You Get: Five luxury deluxe sized beauty essentials, from both well-known and emerging brands, delivered to your door each month.
Icona Milano Emotion Allowed Mascara- Waterproof black mascara. The best part about this product is the tip that Glossybox included on the information card. You can extend the life of your mascara by adding 3-4 drops of saline eye drops into the tube and stirring. Totally doing that!
I haven't heard of this brand and it looks like it's brand new out of Netherlands. 
Value: $19

LA Splash Lip Lacquer High Pigment Collection- This is made just for Glossybox. It has a cream to matte finish which is nice. I received the color Red Carpet. Not a color I wear very often, I have to admit.
Value: $18
Sinful Colors K.J. Trend Matters Satin Collection- This is a very cheap, affordable nail polish. I'm a little surprised to see it in a Glossybox. I'm also hating the fact that they put something with Kylie J's name on it. I try as hard as I can not to support that insanity. I can't even. Am I weird for wanting to just toss it because of that?
Value: $3

TanTowel Half Body Classic- I have so many of these! I've never used one but I think some people swear by them. I do need a (fake) tan but I'm so terrified of streakiness.
Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce- Extra strength finishing spray. I like this brand and I continue to hoard all my samples. I refuse to give any away. I probably have enough for the next ten years though. 
Value: $4

Sebastian Dark Oil- Add this to a moisturizing conditioner then let it sit as a hair mask for 5-10 minutes. I totally need to do this because my hair is so crunchy from sun and direct dye. It has argan oil in it for moisturizing.
Caolion Premium Hot and Cool Pore Pack Duo- Of course I love seeing kbeauty brands in Glossybox! That makes this the best thing in here. These are wash off masks. One is for cleaning your pores and the other for calming irritation.

VERDICT: Well, I'll be honest. This Glossybox is probably the most boring one I've had in a looong time. Super boring. And it felt very cheap. I think that was because of the unknown mascara and the Sinful Colors polish (especially with that K-Klan endorsement *shiver*). Thankfully, most boxes aren't like this and I'm looking forward to the next one.

If you would like to sign up for your own Glossybox, you can do that here. Use code GLOSSYPOP to get a free full size Pop Beauty Kajal Pen through June 30th!

Walmart Beauty Box Summer 2016 Classic Box Review

Walmart has jumped on the beauty sampling box bandwagon. They're pretty hit or miss but for $5 it's hard to resist. I get the "old lady" classic box but there's another version called the Trendsetter for those under 35.
For those curious, these boxes are not high quality makeup and skincare. They are mostly drugstore brands and/or products you'll find in a Walmart. I should also warn you that sometimes the boxes can be horrible and packed with foil samples. I almost cancelled after my Winter 2015 box but decided that for $5 I might as well just continue.

The Cost: $5/quarterly

What You Get: Deluxe size products and foil samples with the occasional full size goodie.

Sephora Play! Beauty Box Subscription Review

Sephora is currently expanding their subscriber base for their new beauty box, Play! by Sephora. Emails for those who've been on the waitlist have been rolling out so check your inbox! This is a super fun beauty box and it's quickly becoming one of my top ten based on brands and sizes. Normally I'm all about the Allure Beauty Box but it looks like Sephora might squidge it out of my top spot.
With each box, you'll receive a fold out pamphlet explaining what you've received and how to use it. This is actually really nice because you can learn some new ways to apply old favorites.
There's also a monthly theme and June's is "The Minimalist." As with most beauty box themes, it's a very loose theme but I don't mind. Oh, and you'll also get a little cotton drawstring bag to hold all your goodies.

The Cost: $10/month

What You Get: A collection of five deluxe samples plus a fragrance in a cute bag, delivered monthly.

Enjoy Leggings June 2016 Subscription Review and 50% Off Coupon

Enjoy Leggings is a subscription that sends a new pair of fun, patterned leggings in the mail every month. I'm not going to lie... I'm kind of in love with this whole idea. I've basically lived in the last pair of leggings they sent and even wore them camping because they are so ridiculously comfortable!

Not only that but I saw the same type of leggings while I was out and these are $4 cheaper. Easy peasy decision. You choose your size and then sit back and wait. There isn't a profile system except for size because they send one style of legging to everyone. Sizes start at 2-4 (Small) and go to 14-18 (Plus).

The Cost: $16/month.

What You Get: One fashionable and fun pair of quality leggings every month.
