I decided to go for it and get a Golden Tote this month, mostly because they had a few really adorable dresses I wanted. Here’s what I got.
Two Items I picked:
Green Maxi Dress
I really like this on. It’s flattering and soft and I can see myself wearing it a lot this summer.
Red Boho-Style Dress
This is shorter than I’d like, but I can get away with it on the weekends. Love the color and will pair it with lace up sandals.
Blue Tank Top
Not really flattering and a style that I dislike, but I might wear it once just to give it a chance. It’s very on trend right now. Just not good for my body type.
Super not flattering.
Green patterned dress
I do like this dress, but it’s one of those things I feel like I’ll be fussing a lot with. Because of the elastic waist and gathering I had to keep pulling it down when I moved otherwise it gathered very unflatteringly at the top.
Overall, would I do it again soon? Probably not, but I did get a few dresses that I like. Unfortunately the two tops were awful and unflattering, and had this been stitch fix everything but the green maxi dress would have gone back.
Here is what I got in each of the beauty subscriptions this month.
IPSY Glam Bag – $10 a month no tax
Etat Libre de Orange – Perfume
INSPR – fluff beauty brush
Jelly Pong Pong – Caribbean sun bronzer duo
SOO AE- Collagen essence sheet masks
IT cosmetics – gel eyeliner
The perfume was much too strong for me and I haven’t tried the other products, mostly because I have no need for them. I think I will be cancelling after this month. Ipsy has adorable bags but didn’t have brands or products I’m all that interested in. I just double checked my profile to see why they would send me an eye product every month and I had not checked anything related to eyes so it seems not all that personalized.
Birchbox – $10 a month plus tax ($10.86 for me)
Coola – Daydream SPF 30 Mineral makeup primer
Eyeko – skinny eyeliner
Matrix – Oil Wonders volume rose plumping mousse (plus shampoo and conditioner)
MDSolarSciences – Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 for Body
Vita Liberata – Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion
I absolutely love the rose shampoo, the smell reminds me of a doll that I played with as a child and it made my hair soft and fluffy. The conditioner didn’t smell as nice, but when I used them together my hair seemed a bit fuller.
I’m excited to try the MDSolarSciences product, I use SPF on the back of my hands and it will be nice to have one with moisture defense in it since my hands get dry. I don’t use makeup primer and hate self tanning lotions, and definitely won’t use the eyeliner. To be able to try 3-4 products that I’m interested in seems like a good deal still and I’m pleased with the brands that Birchbox carries. Plus I like that you get points after reviewing towards your future purchases. I think I’ll stick with Birchbox.
