Fave Five: First Impressions of Beauty Subscriptions

My July Birchbox and ipsy Glam Bag have already arrived!  I'll share the details of those in the coming days, but, for now, here are my favorite things about my first month of beauty boxes.
I have so many beauty boxes for July!

  1. Rewards: Both Birchbox and ipsy have easy rewards programs that allow you to earn points for free or reduced cost products.  I like free or reduced cost.  I'm on board.  
  2. Trying new types of products: I don't thing I'd ever tried a facial primer before, but the Smashbox primer in my June ipsy Glam Bag was nearly life-changing.
  3. Trying "fancier" products: This was clear winning reason for subscribing.  The higher-end products are a bonus, and, for some things, I've really been able to tell the difference in product.  It's fun to try new things, and any time I break up my routine, I end up examining what I'm doing and why.  Which leads me to...
  4. Encouraging self care: Having new beauty "treats" encourages me to put the time into myself.  I've needed that lately when the days and weeks of home improvement projects have become all-encompassing.
  5. Sharing: I know that I won't fall in love with every product in my beauty boxes, but that doesn't mean someone won't enjoy them.  I plan on sharing products from the beauty boxes with friends.  
Coming soon: July beauty boxes, more outfit photos, and a very special project!
