I’m late to the party. I only discovered “beauty boxes” last year. And I’m only on my second time trying them. They add a bit of excitement to the month. Just their arrival and opening can make my day. Makes me sound like my life is so boring!
Anyway, I have never been one to wear a lot of make-up. It’s just too much trouble and since I’ve been pretty active all my life, I can’t be worrying about mascara running down my face as I sweat.
However, I’ve rediscovered tiny pieces of make up. And I have to admit, I’m really enjoying trying things — like new colors. I find myself wearing just a bit of make up several times a week. Not much — powder, mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow and lip gloss. I confess it does add a little pick me up to my very tired, middle aged face.
I’ve subscribed to Julep for my toe nail polish fixes. I had to cancel because it just seemed like I was getting the same old same old colors. And body products I would never use. The mystery boxes are fun and I still get those now and then.
My new mini-subscription (just 3 months) is to Goodebox. I do like to try and use more natural products, so this sounded like a good way to trial products. My first box came today!!! I’m excited to try the sunstick (we use those a lot!) and the facial scrub. Not sure about the towelettes, facial toner and hand/heel moisturizer. I’ll probably give them all a try.
