LET’S GET GLOSSY BABY! {the Glossy Box}

[ 0 ] May 22, 2013 |

Happy “Word I hate to Spell” day.  That’s an official day, p.s..  I totally invented it.  Before you know it they (you know, the “they” that are the authority on days of the week)…anyway, “they” will replace the word “Wednesday” (blah!) with something awesome like, donut.  It’s inevitable.  But that’s not why I’m writing.  Thank god, right?

The REAL reason for this fan-tab-a-licious post is another AWESOME subscription box!  Girls (and dudes that like lady products), meet my new love-bird:  GlossyBox.

I haven’t received a beauty box in a while, and I was STOKED to have this fancy lil’ package waiting for me when I came home from my vacation.  I loved how “put together” this box was.  It reminded me of those beautiful women…you know…the ones that have perfectly placed thick and luxurious locks, an outfit straight out of the magazines, and a set of smokey eyes that scream “I just finished a fabulous photo shoot with a hot guy, don’t be jealous.”  Swoon, right?

Anyway, this box rickity-rox.  The entire experience, from unveiling the products to the products themselves was nothing short of kick-boo-tay.  Love, love, love.

Well, not yet but they will be once I get my special delivery from Mint Nail Polish.  Yeah, I just purchased like, 4 million dollars worth of goodies from them, and now I have to sell girl scout cookies or something. Anyway, I needed some “basics”, so I purchased the (1) Flawless Base Coat, (2) Original Mint; and (3) Wet Look Sealer. I almost always have painted nails, but suck big time at the application part. So, I’m hoping that the base coat and sealer help my nails look less “I’m a 4 year old and just did my own nails” and more “I’m a 7 year old and just did my own nails”.  Baby steps.

Why is Mint Nail Polish so MINT?  Did you know that nail polish products are still considered HAZARDOUS WASTE in counties like L.A?  Well, Ms. Greta Marie Huberty (founder of Mint) was like, “no way jose” and decided to create a long-wearing nail lacquer with increased molecular polymers.  Molecular polymers?  I’m sorry I don’t speak the language.  This is precisely when a scientist hubby comes in handy to break it down “Gerber-style” for me:

Mint is awesome because they make “toxin-free” polish (no carcinogenic/cancer-causing ingredients) – So, it’s SO much better for your bod (just don’t eat it because it’s still a paint product!).  Those “molecular polymers” I mentioned earlier makes your nails nice and shiny while improving durability and polish application.  Excluded from the equation?  Formaldehyde (ew!), DBP (double ew!), Toulene (sounds gross) and animal testing (yey creatures!!)

Plus their colors are way-fun (and they have the cutest kitty & moustache mini-decals).  Whatcha waiting for?  Please stalk your face off and treat your purty lil’ nails to something fab.

Guess who’s doin more awesome stuff in October?  Anatomy Naturals baby!  For those of you that don’t know, Anatomy Naturals is an absolutely awesome company that provides natural gourmet skin care to super cool peeps like you and me.  We met several months ago by chance and have been soul sistas ever since!  Oh, and they are also my first official Sponsor (see ad to the right…over there———> and treat your wallet to a 15% discount).  Your skin will probably high-five you a hundred times in a row for doin’ it.  Fo-shizzle!

So, in addition to being in KLUTCHclub this month, Anatomy Naturals will also be including a sample of their revitalizing dead sea mud mask  in the October Goodebox!  Hooray!  Two of my faves unite -super fab face mud and a killer subscription box.  It’s like heaven without any angels floating around.

Everything you need to know about the mud mask is in my previous post right here.  And, the deets on Goodebox (which is on my list to try) are below.  Happy shopping and congrats to my pal Kelly at Anatomy Naturals for another great partnership.

I am SO excited about this post I can’t even stand it.  After 9-ish months officially bloggin’, I am now officially accepting Sponsors.  And, my very first official Sponsor is a company I happen to adore.

If you read my blog, you are no doubt familiar with Anatomy Naturals.  I first posted about them and their kick-butt all natural skin care products back in March in one of my 5-lists. Actually, it was a super-sized list of Awesome Beauty Stuff if we’re being official (aaaaand, now I’ve officially used that word way too many times for 1 post).

Anyway, that little post resulted in a boat-load of serendipitous events:  I found the best gentle natural facial cleanser this crazy face has ever used.  I had the pleasure of meeting miss Kelly Green (the  mastermind behind these awesome products as noted in my “Interview with a vamp…I mean, “natural” post).  And, the creme’ de la creme’ – I now have a new virtual bestie and sponsor for my little piece of the blog-o-verse.  Awwwwww.

Kelly just sent me a box full of free goodies to try which includes her revitalizing dead sea mudmask (yeah, baby!)  What’s awesome about this mudmask (other than it’s an “awesome mudmask”) is that all 7,000 + subscribers of the September KLUTCHclub box will be gettin’ one of these sample jars delivered to their front door.  How cool is that? Over the past couple of months,  I’ve been following and reporting on Kelly’s KLUTCHclub journey (and mine too! as a subscriber, that is) and am stoked to see two super-cool brands come together.  It’s like one huge health and wellness, indie skin care party.  I’m drunk already, but I’ve never felt healthier.

Be sure to check out Anatomy Natural’s ad (directly above this post) and take advantage of the wonderful discount for 5-style readers. And, be sure to visit my previous KLUTCHclub post here to get a 10% discount on your subscription!

Now, on to the goodies:

The revitalizing dead sea mudmask is heavenly. The first thing I did when I got it was give it a good sniff and it smells like relaxation (if relaxation had a smell).  “This luxurious Dead Sea mud facial mask hydrates and purifies skin while helping to heal acne and promote circulation”  It feels awesome on your skin and totally reminds me of something you’d get in a fancy spa.  My rosacea approves and my skin is smiling.  I’m so excited to hear what my fellow KLUTCHclubbers think! Find yours:  here (for $42 bucks).

I’m SO addicted to scrubs and the smell of this citrus and basil scrub makes me wanna mow the lawn naked or shower with my lawnmower while eating an orange.  Who am I kidding, I don’t have a lawn mower.  Either way it’s a win in my book.  I love these 2 smells together – so refreshing and clean.  “Nourishing oils and salts exfoliate and soften your skin while the invigorating scent wakes you up! Smells like fresh grass and juicy fruits.”   Yes and yes.  Find yours:  here (for $32 bucks).

Lastly, but not leastly, I got to try the mint lip butter. And, as a matter of fact, I’m still “trying” it as I type, meaning that I’m obsessively rubbing my lips together while I repeatedly reapply!  This stuff rocks for 2 reasons:  #1 – it’s a lip butter and not a “balm” (remember that I hate that word) and #2 it tastes minty and not vasaline-y.  Oh, and most importantly, #3:  “Refreshing mint natural lip balm softens and protects dry chapped lips leaving them smooth and supple!“  I need to kiss someone STAT.  Find your 2-pack:  here (for $12 bucks).

You can show your support (AKA, “stalk”) and follow Anatomy Naturals via any of the vee-hick-als below.  Happy shopping!
