That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 6.22.15
I love a good beauty subscription box, but beauty lovers need snacks too! Which is why I am all over UrthBox. It is literally a snacker’s dream.
There are four box sizes to choose from. A six month subscription runs $9 a month for 6 items, while $36 per month will get you 24 items or more. All sizes have free US shipping. (Note: you’ll pay a little bit more per box if you don’t sign up for six months.) Choose from classic, vegan, gluten-free or diet options.
In these boxes you’ll find healthy snacks and beverages. Now, don’t get scared by “healthy” if you’re more of a chip/chocolate gal. I had both in my box, but they were minimally processed, making them “healthier” (I’ll accept that!)
The majority of the items in my classic large size box (26 products!) were what you’d traditionally think of as healthy. My first impression was that it was more kale-tastic than I would have preferred, because honestly, I’m not the biggest kale fan. But you know what ended up being my favorite item? Not the chocolate, not the chips…
My favorite item was the Dipperz: cheezy kale chips that somehow had no cheese in them at all (they get their cheese flavor from cashews and yeast, and magic, I’m assuming.) And there lies the beauty of UrthBox – you get to try snacks you may not have chosen on your own, and you end up loving them! Snacker’s dream, I’m telling you…
Now grab a snack and get ready for the Lipstick League.
Question of the Week: What are your favorite deep-conditioning hair treatments?
Answer: I love Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. It’s lux all around: creamy, heavenly-scented with avocado, sweet almond and argan oils, and makes my hair incredibly smooth and soft.
