A-Sorted Box, your new favorite subscription box

Curated for the person with a modern lifestyle, the A-sorted Subscription box differs from many other subscription boxes out there. And the best part is that it is only $29 with a value of over $100. The Women’s box covers items from Beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Wellness, and more. And the Men’s box includes Grooming Products, Fashion Accessories, Snacks, and more. I was thrilled to receive the Fall box which included items from seven different brands. a-sorted box, subscription box, los angeles, organic, vegan, paleo, beauty, style, fashion, health, snacksBased out of Los Angeles each box is curated for quality. That is why the box is seasonal and is limited edition. Several brands in this box were new to me and I love discovering new brands and items. Isn’t it just the worst when you pay for a subscription box and get items that you already have or find it that other subscription boxes has the same items? Most of the items in the box were marked with either organic, vegan, cruelty free, natural ingredients and more. Which, I am totally for! We need to not only better our eating habits when it comes to vegetarianism/veganism but also think about the product that we buy and use.

*Please take in note that I am NOT vegan but sometimes make the vegan or vegetarian choices.

February Glossybox

Glossy box were kind enough to send me their February box to try it out. If you’re not familiar with Glossybox yet let me tell you a little bit about it. Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box and in each box you will receive 5-6 sample products from different current beauty brands. A subscription plan starts at $17.50 per month. Beauty subscription boxes are a great way to explore and discover new beauty products and brands. It is also great for trying out new products. I used to be a huge Glossybox fan but not long ago I stopped with almost all of my subscription boxes because I noticed that even though I loved receiving them, all the items I received just started piling up.

Whats unique about Glossybox is that not everyone gets the same items. The items your box various to skin types and preferences. So, the 5 items that I received in my February Glossybox were; Jeanne Arthes L’Eau de Rose, a perfume with the fresh spring scents of rose. Schwarzkopf Professional Usabc Repair Rescues Deep Nourishing Treatment which I have not tried yet but will as soon as my extensions are out of my hair. I have only tried Eve by Eves Mattifying HD Loose Powder a few times but so far I am liking it. Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat is probably something that I won’t use because I never wear pink on my nails and I am too lazy to put on an extra gel coat.

 The Estée Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE out of all the items in this box and I actually ended up buying the full sized products from Sephora to use once my little sample is gone! Its pricy but SO worth it if you have dry skin. You also need to use an extremely small amount of product. Do you subscribe to Glossybox? If so, what was the best product you have ever received?

Popsugar Must Have Fall Special Edition Box

It is finally here, the Popsugar Must Have Fall Special Edition box! It was dropped off by my door today and I was super excited to open it as I didn’t even know what brands were in the box, or even products. I know that they had some good stuff last year so I hoped for the best when I ordered the box. This Special Edition Box comes in a special all black box, and unlike the other boxes this is actually not the shipping box! Now the packaging inside was not so appealing, most of the items were just wrapped in black tissue paper and that was all of it. I don’t really like dark so I would have preferred a higher or more fun color of the wrapping.

This is the whole content of the Special Edition Box. Personally, Im pretty happy about it. I love all cute home decor stuff so these will definitely come to use in some way! And as far as the beauty products go you can never have too much. It is six full sized products or objects andI will talk about each and everyone a little if you just continue to scroll down a bit.

The absolutely gorgeous tray is from Swing Design, and this is absolutely a item that you can not have to many off. There is always room for another tray to put small items in and this one will go either on my dest or on my headboard. I absolutely love the blue wooden inside of it and I did not at all expect that. The so called Aura Laquer Aquamarine Valet Tray is found at Bloomingdales for $60 and comes in three different colors.

I also have this lovely necklace from Deepa Gurnani. It is a really cool and good looking statement necklace. Its not too big for my taste either. The crystals on the necklace is embroiled onto a cotton woven with a cow hide backing, so wearing the necklace feels really nice and there are no sticky points or cold stones agains your skin. The necklace is handcrafted in India and the precision of the embroidery really shows off! The necklace retails for $90.

Now, it seems as this necklace already is sold out, probably because it was sent out in the boxes. But here and here are some similar options for you both from Deepa Gurnani. If you want some cheaper options here is one here from Panacea and another one from Shop LuLu.

Next up we have a product from Tatcha: Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. Now if I get this right, its a cleaning skin exfoliater in powder form. So when you use the powder you have to blend it out with some water in order to get a foam or a cream that you then massage onto your skin. The powder has a blend of Rice and Papaya Enzymes that works on your skin. Now from experience I love products that have Papaya enzymes because it works wonder on your skin! the powder is sold at Tatchas website and is retailed for $65 for 60g/2.1oz and you can choose the one that best suits your skin condition.

Next we have a super cute nail polish from Smith & Cult. And for once in my life I didn’t get a pink nail polish! Now I haven’t tried it on yet because I just did my nails the other day, but the nail polish has been featured in both Vogue and Elle so it should be good. And I just love the design of the bottle and the cap. Description of the nail polish says its high pigmented and long-lasting. The shade is named No Poem, but I can’t seem to find this one for sale anywhere, but don’t worry, both Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter have a bunch of beautiful shades retailed at $18.

Now these are not mirrors, it is actually coasters and if you have followed my Popsugar Must Have Box unpacking before there was actually one time where I got a little bowl from the same brand in the exactly same design, so now I have some matchy match items! The coasters do come in a set of four but I only used two of them while taking some photos! They are from Canvas Home which have a bunch of items in the same serie. The Dauville Coasters in Platinum are not only super stylish, but I also feel that they can be used for other thinks like small tray for jewelry or just decoration, thats how cute they are! The coasters are made of porcelain and are all hand painted and hand made. Retails at $46 right here.

Now last but absolutely not least is the Ombre Rouge Eye Palette from BECCA Cosmetics. This five shade eyeshadow palette comes in a sleek, luxurious feeling, case with a mirror on the full inside of the lid. Now the eyeshadows are fairly pigmented, I haven’t tried them on but I did swatch a few of them quickly on my hand. The eyeshadows also seem to be very easy bendable but still leaves a gorgeous pigmented color on the skin. There is absolutely no fragrance to the eyeshadows and they are Paraben, Sulfate and Phthalate free. The eyeshadow palette retails at $40 and are available online only at ULTA and Sephora.

Now sadly, it seems as the Special Edition Fall Box sold out pretty fast, in 36 hours. So it is no longer available to order. The regular Popsugar Must Have Box however is available to subscribe to where you monthly will get a box filled with home, fashion and beauty goodies. The box starts at $39.99 for month to month subscriptions and with the code REFER5 you get $5 off your first box! Doing a 3- or 6-month subscription will be cheaper in the long run.

Rocksbox

This is the second box that I’ve received from Rocksbox and I’m as always so excited. For you who aren’t familiar with what Rocksbox is i’ll give you a little recap. (And a promotion code)

Rocksbox is kind of a subscription box, but you are not limited to just one box each month, even if you pay monthly for the service. What the box is is more of a rental service of fine jewelry. You get to rent, borrow, however you want to put it, up to three pieces of jewelry for each box. You keep the box for as long time as you want too and when you send it back you will get a new box with three new pieces.
