Beauty Treats: Part Two

Beauty Box 5, Bubble Babez Bubble Box, and....Wholly Hemp! Here is part 2 of my Beauty Treats from October :)

Beauty Box 5 October 2012

This was by far, one of the lightest boxes I have plucked out of my mailbox. So I was a little wary (call it a Glymm effect). So upon opening I was pleasantly surprised. The theme of this box is Tricks of the Trade.

Starting top Left and down:
1) Lash Cards: yes a piece of cardboard. I'll use them but I wouldn't buy them.
2) Goat Haus Dairy Lip Balm: hurray! always happy to see lip balm in any box!
3)Furlesse Elevens: From the description it sounds like a magic patch that makes wrinkles appear diminished.

Starting top Right and down:
1) City Cosmetics Lip Plumper: Its a nice little sample but to be honest, I've got some plump lips already, so I don't really use them.
2) Show Stoppers Fashion Tape: double sided tape to prevent the girls from peeking out your shirts, haha.

The Bubble Box October 2012

This box I was especially looking forward to this month's bubble box as it was Nikki and Tristan's birthday month. And we Babez got all the presents! The box was full of their favourites and it did not disappoint. I was still cleaning up the confetti after opening it!

Let's go clockwise, starting at the top left:

1)Under My Love Spell All Natural Whipped Shea Butter: these are amazing. They actually feel like you are spreading cool whip onto your skin. They keep your skin soft long after you put it on. I like to put it on after a shower.

2) Egg Nog Soy wax Melt: festive!

3) Absinthe Sugar Scrub: you just break one open with some water and scrub away. I've never had Absinthe before so this should be interesting

4)Oatmeal & Honey Soap
5) Simply Soap: This is one of the cleanest soaps I've ever used!
6) Pomegranate Watermelon Body scrub: I love that this is bigger than a shot, I get to use it twice!
7) (centre) Vanilla Spice All Natural Whipped Shea Butter

Another great box of homemade bath goodies! 

Wholly Hemp October 2012

So far, this sub has been very consistent in mailing. No complaints here! My husband really likes how this soap softens and cleans. So I just give him the whole bar! This month's scent is pink grape fruit. The little pot of moisturizer is in Jasmine. I also received another lip balm and two other soap samples :)
All of this will get used for sure!

Surprise Sephora Gift Bag with purchase

Sephora Canada had a special promo for their birthday. Any purchase and you used a coupon code to receive a special party bag with 6 deluxe samples inside. When my shipment arrived, this was the first thing I grabbed for!

At the top a sample of Hourglass Mascara in Film Noir, the Porefessional from benefit, and Stila's sheer colour tinted moisturizer in medium.

From Left to Right: Caudalie Vinexpert Firming serum, Ole Henriksen truth serum collagen booster, and a sample of Chloe fragrance. 
I love it when its someone's birthday and you get a present too!

Lovely beauty treats of October, I wonder what November will bring? :)


  1. I still haven't jumped into the BB5 service yet and from what I have been seeing not sure if I will subscribe to it. By the Wholly Hemp is a new to me one. Hmm wonder if I will get the Bubble Box this upcoming week. I nkow I requested it. Thanks for sharing your haul with us

    1. I know the Bubble Babez have been affected by Hurricane Sandy, so They might be behind.
      BB5 has come a long way since their first box, I kept an eye on them. My first box was August and it was pretty awesome. I subbed for a year. Its an American company so a lot of brands they send may not be available here. I do recommend them as they actually are the same cost as Topbox per month. :)

  2. Hi, I would like to sign up the Wholly Hemp sub, but I didn't find any infos on their website at all.

    May I know where to subscribe?


    1. Hi there. I just emailed Wholly Hemp and they have decided to discontinue their subscription service. It's sad :( There website still has some great products though. Buying a bar of soap and a jar of moisturizer comes up to the same price as the subscription and you get to pick your scents! I hope this helps!

    2. Thanks so much :) it's a little disappointed!


Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading all your comments and try to respond to each and every one!
Thank you, Lovelies :D
