Snack Sender February 2015

Snack Sender, who kindly sent me this box to review, is an online snack subscription service that delivers custom snacks directly to you at the same time every month. Each Snack Sender includes five 4oz. delicious snacks of your choice.

The Box

Snack Sender ships via USPS Priority Mail during the first week in the month.  My box took just two days to arrive, but Snack Sender estimates delivery at between 3 to 5 days.

First Look

The packaging on this one was top notch.  No one wants their snacks to be all crushed and there is no way it’s happening here.

Snack Sender February 2015 Subscription Box Review

Second First Look

You get to pick your snacks with Snack Sender so they don’t include an information card.  If you want to check out all of their snacks you can do so on their website.  Here are the snacks I received:

~Whole Wheat Raspberry Bars: These were really good.  They were kind of a mix between a NutriGrain bar and a Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar.  I posted picture of the backs of all the packages so you can check out all of the ingredients and nutritional information and this is all also included on their site.

~Gummi Peachies: Once my kids got a hold of these, it was all over.  I swear they could smell them when I opened the package and were instantly over my shoulder asking me when I’d be done taking pictures.  They did let me have one and it was awesome.

~Kettle Sweet Mixed Nuts: I am not typically a fan of nuts, but these were pretty good.  They are “toffee inspired”, so maybe that’s why?

~Dark Chocolate Pretzels: These arrived in the insulated silver envelope.  I think Snack Sender ships from Arizona so I appreciated that they took steps to make sure the chocolate didn’t get all melty.  And it didn’t.  These were delicious.  I love chocolate covered pretzels and these were good ones.

I didn’t do an individual cost breakdown on this box, but it works out to be a little over $5 per item.  I like that you can pick your snacks and know all of the ingredients in advance!

GLOSSYBOX March 2015 Subscription Box Review

GLOSSYBOX, who kindly sent me this box to review, is a monthly beauty subscription box.  It costs $21/month and includes five luxury surprise beauty items shipped to your door. GLOSSYBOX does sometimes have some issues with late shipping, but they put typically put together amazing boxes that far exceed the cost so I don’t mind.

GLOSSYBOX March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Box

GLOSSYBOX ships via USPS. I received this box super early for review purposes, but I also have a subscription of my own that will probably arrive in the second half of March.

The GLOSSYBOX Box

It’s back to the regular pink GLOSSYBOX box this month.  Last month’s box was so cute and hopefully there will be another special box or collaboration soon!

Second First Look

The first look wasn’t overly exciting.  I wasn’t too sure what everything was, but I also wasn’t wowed by it.

GLOSSYBOX March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

The March 2015 GLOSSYBOX included the following items:

~So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Quad (~$10): I know this isn’t a full-size, but I also can’t figure out the actual size of a full-sized quad, so I had to guess at the price.  I like the variety of colors in this palette, but I thought that it was a little dry.  I’d recommend mixing it with a little lotion on your sponge or figure.

So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Quad

~ModelCo. More Brows Eyebrow Thickening Gel in Medium/Dark ($18): I thought for sure this was a sample size, but nope, this one is full-sized!  It’s a brow thickening gel to help you create that perfect brow look – even if you have sparse or over-plucked brows (this happens to me when I pluck).

~Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Stain in Pink ($19.99): This stain works for both your cheeks and lips.  The color is awesome alone and can be layered with something else if you want to go a little darker.

~Ouidad Color Sense Color Preserving Shampoo & Conditioner ($10/each): This is a totally new brand for me.  The shampoo smells fantastic and is supposed to remove daily mineral deposits and the conditioner will protect against dehydration.

~Orogold Cosmetics 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer ($10.47/each): Ohh, fancy!  This cream contains vitamins, antioxidants and pure 24K gold.  No, for real.  According to the information card the 24 karat gold works to reduce the signs of aging by plumping and firming skin.  Interesting.  Don’t mind if I do rub gold all over my face.  LOL!  I couldn’t find a sample size on this, so I had to guess.  I wasn’t sure if I got two samples on accident or if the box was supposed to contain two so I confirmed with GLOSSYBOX and boxes do contain two samples of this!

~Caseable.com Coupon Code: This month’s box also includes a unique coupon code worth anywhere between $5 – $100 for Caseable.com!  The code is valid through 4/30/2015, so you’ll have plenty of time to create a new case for your phone or whatever!

All totaled I came up with an estimated value of $88.93 for the March 2015 GLOSSYBOX (that doesn’t include the caseable.com coupon code).  I can’t say that this was my favorite GLOSSYBOX, but I will use everything in it so that’s always a win!

What do you think of this month’s GLOSSYBOX so far? Do you love it as much as I do? If you are a new subscriber and are interested in ordering you can use the coupon code “OCCSMOTE” to get a free Obsessive Color Cosmetics Loose Color Concentrate in Smote in your first box or “OPRAH” for 20% off a 6 or 12-month subscription.  I believe if you order by the 28th you will receive the February box, but if you order on the 1st or after, your subscription will begin with the March box.
