beauty box 5 september 2014 | #thebeautybalance

I’ve been diving right into this 31 Day Writing Challenge, where each blogger chooses a topic to write about for 31(ish) days. Because it’s right where God has me, I’ve chosen to share on Blending Beauty with Balance.
(#thebeautybalance, if you want to follow along…or better yet, join the conversation using the hashtag!)

It’ll be a fun and encouraging 31(ish) days where I’ll be sharing tips and tricks while digging deeper, finding purpose, and blending beauty with balance — all with a heart of intention. {all 31(ish) Days will be linked here}


Now that we’re caught up with that…let’s get to today’s post:

So today on my YouTube channel (make sure to subscribe over there if you’re not!), I’m sharing with you my latest Beauty Box 5 monthly subscription box. And in case you’re not so familiar with these, let me just tell you that they are pretty much the most fun thing you’ll ever get in your mailbox.

There’s two things I really love…lipstick and mail…and it is a HAPPY day when the two are combined.

It’s kind of genius really.

Now there are a TON of beauty & health boxes out there (I’ve gone over quite a few of them here), and in keeping with the theme of blending beauty with balance, I don’t condone any of us going out and subscribing to them all.

In fact, I ONLY actually pay for one myself (IPSY), while the rest are sent to me for review on my channel. I love sharing them all with you though, so that you can see what’s out there and make the informed decision on which one will work best for your own beauty budget and routine.

Today’s box, Beauty Box 5, is $11 for 5 beauty products a month. Mostly you won’t find any super high end products with this one, but I have actually discovered some of my most favorite items (like the Nicka K brushes!) that I would have never known about had I not been subscribed to this box.

So the bright side is…you get to try out some fun new products for a fraction of the price, and never have to face the overwhelming beauty products aisles where you end up leaving with way more than you ever intended on buying.

The not so bright side…you may end up with some products that you actually won’t use or may not love so much…but even then, there’s a bright side, because now you have a gift to pass on to a friend or family member!

The beauty box.
The gift that keeps on giving.

Now that you’re up to date, here’s what came in my Beauty Box 5 for the month of September.

I hope you’ll come back each day and join along in #thebeautybalance conversation, and I’ll be sure to link each post back to this page, so that there will be a landing spot for all of the 31 posts.

And of course…to make it even easier to follow along, I encourage you to subscribe to my blog so you’ll never miss an update! (see the bottom of this post!)

FTC: This is not a sponsored video. While some products have been sent to me, I will always share my honest opinion of everything that I try and review on my channel. I will never accept payment in exchange for a positive review. Some links above may be affiliate.

While I LOVE beauty, health, and all things related, more than anything my heart and soul belongs to Jesus! This quote expresses exactly what I hope shines more than anything:

“Like Paul and every other believer, my life is no longer my own. The focus must not be on me, but on Christ. When someone hears from me publicly, I want it all to point to Him.”

{quote from John MacArthur}

  1. I LOVE that you are going to be addressing beauty in such a way that it serves as a point to reflect back on our Lord! Amen, Sister! I’ll be praying for you as this is a big task to do and the subject is an idol or a point of confusion for many woman. The reach you have and the women who follow this blog could really touch the lives of other women who are confused by or encumbered by the worldly take on beauty! How exciting is that!?! 😀
