As I told Nadine, I really should be posting my empties, and it’s been a while since I updated everyone on my skincare journey as well as a few other things I’m planning to do going forward, so I figured I’d do both. Continue reading “March 27, 2017: Updates and Empties”
It seems like just yesterday I was opening my February Sephora Play box, but that’s probably because I got it so late. Sephora was on the ball in March, though, so I got my box pretty darn quick.
This month’s theme was “The Gleam Team” and for the most part featured products aimed at giving you a glow, whether that’s highlighters or (for some) shimmery eyeshadows and lip products. Each month, you’ll get a unique draw string bag that is designed around that theme. It looks like this month takes us back to the white jersey fabric, but then I suppose we couldn’t have satin and mesh forever.

February was a good month for me with Sephora Play, though I didn’t get my box until March 1. This wasn’t supposed to happen, mind you. My box had been shipped on February 14, but due to some shipping issues, it never arrived. I’m not sure if this is an ongoing thing with Sephora and whoever is shipping their boxes, but it’s the second time this has happened to me in under six months. Nevertheless, both times it’s happened, Sephora has been great about handling the problem. A few months back, they refunded me the cost of my box, though it did eventually arrive. This month, they simply shipped me a new one.
Since one can pretty much expect that something will happen eventually with a product being shipped to them, this is what makes the difference for me when it comes to customer service. To me, this was a good way to handle the issue, and I can at least say that I’ve dealt with their customer service and can give them a good review.

You know, I was never really a huge fan of sheet masks until I’d fully plunged myself into Asian skincare a little under a year ago. Now I’m addicted. These things are probably the single best part of my routine, leaving my skin so incredibly hydrated and fresh.
They can get expensive, though. This was my initial issue with sheet masking. It wasn’t very wallet friendly. And if you’re an every day masker, that can be a routine that costs you anywhere from $30-100+ every month, depending on what kinds of masks you’re using, and that doesn’t even include the rest of your skincare!
I am so not the kind of person who wants to spend that kind of money, so I look for the best masks I can get at the cheapest price point possible. Continue reading “Review: BONVIVANT Sheet Mask Fiber 101 Kit from Memebox”
Beauteque Mask Maven is a monthly subscription. For $15 plus shipping (just under $19 for me), you get a curated bag of 9-11 masks. These are usually sheet masks, but they can vary on occasion. It’s absolutely enough to fill up the month for anyone who does two, sometimes three masks per week, which is nice because you’ll always have a variety of sheet masks on hand. Should you find something you like and purchase a bundle of your own, you can skip a month with Beauteque and take time to try it all out without ended up buried underneath a pile of unused sheet masks.
In other words, there’s no risk of running into the notorious subscription box stockpile with this subscription.
Each month includes a card that gives you more information about each mask that’s included as well as instructions whenever needed, and all masks are packaged in a pretty sheer drawstring bag. When I last grabbed my Mask Maven subscription back in September, they were also including a calendar that gave you an idea as to when to use each mask over the course of 30 days, but I didn’t get one this time. Maybe they’ve discontinued it. I enjoyed it while it lasted. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven February 2017 Review”
