Is this my secret to good skin? What’s Love Aiki got to do, got to do with it

I received Love Aiki’s November box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.  I hope I won’t jinx it by saying this out loud, but despite the stress of the season (compounded by little sleep and a lot of baked goods) my skin has been clear as day and not at all puffy or haggard. (Then again, it’s early days yet.) I’m thinking it must have something to do with the skincare products I’ve been trying the past couple of weeks. They’re from Love Aiki, a subscription box that delivers four to five full-size organic and natural skincare products customized to your skin type every other month.

What’s inside November’s Glossybox #beautybox

I received November’s Glossybox for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This review also appears on A Year of Boxes. December’s come rushing in and I still have three November beauty boxes to share with you so maybe pour yourself a cup of tea and sit with me while I catch you up. (If you’ve still got some shopping to do, any one of these would make a great gift for the beauty lover on your list.) First up: Glossybox. It’s a monthly beauty subscription box that delivers five deluxe or full-size beauty products ranging from trendy to high-end. The company sources from more than 400 brands around the world to curate a sampling valued around $60 USD for $21/month.

Made to pamper: November’s Lookfantastic beauty box

I received November’s Lookfantastic box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. Lookfantastic is a monthly subscription box from the UK that delivers six premium beauty and skin care products and a copy of ELLE UK for £15.00 or about $22 CAD/month and free international shipping. November’s is curated with products that pamper. Cue all the hygge feels!

How much do we love a limited edition? What’s inside the second Book Lovers Box from Sweet Reads Box

Sweet Reads Box sent me their Book Lovers Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Well I finally got around to booking my laser eye surgery for January 1. Can’t wait to have 2020 vision. 😂 Okay I don’t need laser eye surgery but I see it’s been a minute since I promised today’s post. Sweet Reads Box issues special one-off boxes from time to time (I’ve just ordered one of their first Kids Christmas Boxes for my guys) and IMHO their second limited edition Book Lovers Box is one of their best. Like the monthly subscription box, it’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, tea or coffee, a sweet treat and some goodies tied in to the story; in this case the book is about an aspiring novelist and the goodies all celebrate books. Here’s a closer look. 📚
