Hi there! I got FOUR packages in the mail the other day. FOUR! Best mail day ever! I don't have time to share everything right now, but I do want to share my thoughts on the BaubleBar Monthly Makeover box! Um, I took a lot of pictures of this one.
|I love pretty packaging!|
The Monthly Makeover box from BaubleBar costs $44 and is a one time charge. You aren't automatically charged every month like normal subscription boxes; you have to purchase the box each month on BaubleBar's website. This box was purchased by me!
This box promised at least an $80 value and came with a statement necklace (you choose the color), a mystery bracelet, a full size Rescue Hair Serum, Polette sunglasses, and a BaubleBar travel pouch.
I chose the aqua statement necklace. It came in a lovely BaubleBar pouch! My first impression of the necklace is that the chain is too short. It fits me, but I would like for it to be a little longer! I'll show you a picture of me with it on later.
My mystery bracelet also came with a BaubleBar pouch to keep it in! I got a gunmetal grey pave accent bracelet. I wouldn't have picked this out myself, but I will wear it because I actually needed a gunmetal grey bracelet to match some other jewelry I have!
This bracelet was also a little snug when I first tried it on. But I wore it to work yesterday, and it loosened up a bit, so I think I can make it work!
When I purchased this box, I knew that the sunglasses were going to be useless to me because I absolutely have to wear prescription lenses. I guess I just really like blowing money on stuff I won't use. (Yeah, that sounds about right!) But I didn't expect to enjoy these Polette frames so much! I totally thought they were going to be silly, and they kind of are, but I look ADORABLE in them. I think. I mean I can't see myself when I have them on. Of course, I am saving my modeling picture until the end of this blog.
I haven't tried the Rescue Hair Serum yet, and I don't have a photo of the bottle to show you because I opened it and spilled it all over myself so I had to put it on my bathroom counter where it was safe. It did pass the smell test, though. I've been experimenting with some different oils this summer, so I think I will like this!
Um, I don't have much to say about the BaubleBar pouch. It's cute. Scroll for a picture.
Okay, so I took these pictures when I was still drinking my coffee, so they are a little rough! Like, pre washed face and hair kind of rough. Enjoy!
|What statement am I making with this statement necklace? Ha ha.|
Overall, I had a lot of fun with the BaubleBar Monthly Makeover box, even though it was $44. I won't get it every month, but I will check on it from month to month to see what kind of fun stuff they are featuring. I've already worn both of the jewelry pieces to work, but I am still going to look for an extender for the necklace. And really, if you shop in department stores, a huge statement necklace like the one I got is going to start at a minimum of $25, so it's not a bad deal! A box like this would be a great gift for someone who likes costume jewelry, like me. Also, the attention to detail in this box (handwritten note, individual jewelry pouches, etc.) was impressive. Here is a breakdown of the items, and links to wear you can find them:
- Aqua Statement Necklace. I don't think this is available separately from the box right now, but based on other necklaces on BaubleBar's website, I will estimate this is worth $34.
- Grey Pave Accent Bracelet. This also isn't available anymore, but based on similar bracelets on BaubleBar's site, I estimate this would retail for $24.
- Rescue Hair Serum, 4.4 fl oz. Available here for $50! WHAAAAAT? I had no idea it was so expensive until just now. Kind of wish I hadn't spilled it everywhere. Oops.
- BaubleBar travel pouch. Doesn't appear to be available for separate purchase. I won't even give it a value since this box is obviously already worth at least $120! Really, wow. I think my estimates are fair. This is a great deal!
I forgot to mention that BaubleBar always has free shipping and returns. The Monthly Makeover Box, however, is non-refundable, but I did know what the necklace and sunglasses looked like before purchasing, so it's not a complete surprise.
See you next time!
