Your Bijoux Box Review - March 2014 - Jewellery/Jewelry Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

What is it?Your Bijoux Box
How Much? $35/month plus $6 shipping to Canada. Discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.
What’s in it?  2-3 pieces of on-trend, versatile, and wearable jewellery, valued at least $70. 

I've been watching Your Bijoux Box for a while but the price always kept me from subscribing. $41 US per month is a lot to spend on jewellery items. I finally signed up after seeing a sneak peek for the March box. I had to have the Jardin Fleur necklace

I hate these cello crinkle pieces. They are messy, stick to everything, and non-recyclable. The rest of the packaging is very nice, and the box was obviously packed with care. The product card includes item descriptions, but no prices.

The product card and March Reveal only show three pieces, but there were four little pouches in my March box. I didn't use a promo code so I'm not sure why I received 4 pieces, instead of the advertised three, but I'm not complaining.

meowbox Review - March 2014 - Canadian Pet Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

This box was sent complimentary for review. What is it?meowbox
How Much? $29.95/month, $74.85/quarter, $119.70/half-year - shipping included on all plans.
What's in it? A monthly box filled with fun, unique toys and healthy goodies for your cat

There are so many subscription boxes for dogs out there. This is the one of the few available just for cats - and it's Canadian! meowbox ships from Vancouver, BC., and all subscriptions include free shipping across Canada!

meowbox generously offered to send a box for my kitty Sam, a very fluffy bluepoint Ragdoll with a lot of cat-titude. Sam is currently on vacation, visiting my mom and her sister-cats on Vancouver Island, so I will be reviewing this meowbox on her behalf.
I love opening up a box to find lovely packaging. The feather is a nice touch and it's something Sam would love swatting around. Actually, the box is something she would enjoy a lot as well. Cats are so easy to please.

Topbox 24clearit Review - March 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

What is it?Topbox
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it?  4 deluxe beauty samples 
Topbox was a bit unexpected this month. I forgot that I marked the 24clearit box when making my wish list selection, so I was a little surprised when this box arrived. This review will be different than my usual Topbox reviews.

Until receiving this box, I'd never heard of 24clearit. I had to do some research. It's an Acne Therapy system, similar to Proactiv, that is available online.

The skincare experts at 24clearit decided to work with top chemists to create a new and fresh approach to treating acne. It was based on a simple question: how can we develop an effective Acne Treatment that leaves skin clear, smooth and glowing.The answer was simple – add important hydrating and protecting ingredients at the right concentrations to the smart acne medicine – and deliver in different formulations for day and night. With skin protection during the day, and restorative ingredients…

Sneak Peek
Tree Hut Moisturizing Hand Cream in Tropical Mango (3oz, $5.29)
I have received two previous Tree Hut products from BB5, both of them Tropical Mango scent, and I loved them. I am happy to receive this generous size product.

Jane's Pick All Natural Handmade Bar Soap (1.35oz sample,  $2.16)
Soap is a staple so I can't complain. It's pretty but doesn't smell like anything special.

Ipsy Glam Bag Review - March 2014 - Beauty Subscription Bag

This post contains referral links.

What is it?Ipsy Glam Bag How Much? $10 per month, plus $4.95 shipping to Canada
What’s in it?  4-5 beauty products every month 
The March Ipsy Glam Bag is here and the theme this month is Destination Beauty. 
"Exotic beaches or a simple stay-cation - what beautiful destination is your March Glam Bag getting ready for?"
The cosmetic pouch is part of Ipsy's new Artist Series. The design is exclusive to Ipsy, and was created by San Francisco based artist Klari Reis. The print is from her geography-based series titled "Street Anatomy" and this bag showcases San Francisco. The monthly info card also features her artwork. It's a pretty cool idea.

I redeemed Ipsy referral points and received this Benefit High Beam complexion enhancer for free. I was really surprised to see it's a full size product, worth $26.

Wantable Intimates Box Review - February 2014 - Undergarment Subscription Box

This post contains affiliate links.

What is it?Wantable
How Much? $36 monthly or $40 one time purchase, plus approximately $10 shipping
What's in it? Intimates box includes 4-5 premium essentials. Make up box includes 4-5 full-size premium makeup products. Accessories box includes 3-4 boutique jewellery pieces. All are picked to match your profile preferences.
My Wantable Intimates box arrived quite last this month, but that was my own doing. I forgot that my account was on "skip". When I saw all the great things people were getting in their February boxes, I went back and "unskipped" before the end of the month so I could get in on the cute February picks. My box shipped on February 24th and arrived March 7th.

February is the month of love, so we've brought plenty of flirty intimates to our boxes this month. Our February intimates box is perfect for both lazy days and spring flings alike.
My first look was one of... "Hmm... that's not what I wa…
