Indie Gift Box Review October 2013 – Indie Subscription Box

indie gift box review

Not long ago, I tried out Poppy Parcel and loved the cool indie brands featured. At that time, I also found out they were selling the company and it was bought by Indie Gift Box. I’ve been wanting to try Indie Gift Box, so I figured this would be the best time to do it. I was thrilled when they reached out to offer me one of their October boxes to review!…

Olio Luxe Review August 2013 – Beauty Subscription Box

A few people recommended I try Olio Luxe products.  Olio Luxe makes their own beauty and skincare products. They do not have a typical recurring subscription, instead you have the option to purchase each month manually. I have to say, I am really happy with this beauty box!

The Cost: $22 a month, including shipping

The Products: Olio Luxe sends out their own brand of hand-crafted beauty and skincare products.

What struck me most about the company and was the deciding factor in trying the subscription when I did was the fact that the owner, Amanda, is so full of passion for beauty and great skincare. She believes having good products that work for you can play a major role in how you feel. I have to say, I agree with her!

Ultra-Luxe Body Powder - Value $14

Olio Luxe Spiced Tea Lip Balm – Value $6

I love the Spiced Tea scent, this is the perfect scent for Autumn and it really makes me long for those cool sunny days.

Olio Luxe Multi-Talented Facial Oil – Value $18

I LOVE this oil! It is described as a multi-purpose oil you can use to remove your eye makeup or for general skincare. I used a few drops and it completely removed my smokey eye. It is the definition of small, but powerful.

Thoughts: I am pretty happy with my first Olio Luxe box and I will definitely be getting another one soon. Everything is really great quality and you can really tell a lot of heart and passion went behind the making of each product.

What do you think of Olio Luxe? Have you ever gotten a box from them?

Poppy Parcel Review August 2013 – Indie Subscription Box

I’ve heard people mention Poppy Parcel a few times and decided it was about time I tried them out on my own. It was a good thing I made my decision when I did because soon after I made my purchase, I saw the announcement that they are looking for new owners.

The Cost: $20.99

The Products: Poppy Parcel contains a selection of products from indie beauty and lifestyle brands as well as products from uprising companies.

Counter Couture Strawberry Tea Towel – Value $10

I love tea towels and cannot get enough of them. I love the strawberry print. It inspires me to bake a pie for some reason.

Especially Paper Lemon Tag Pack - Value $2

This was really cute. I never ran my own lemonade stand before, but I think this might be a cute decoration idea for a kids party with a mini lemonade stand.

Nail Butter – Value $12

Nail Butter works to strengthen your nails and cuticles. I was really excited to see this in the box. I have not been able to wear nail polish in a while because my nails were peeling. I hope this will help me get back on my polish addiction without anymore breaks!

Thoughts: I really liked this box a lot. The products were quirky, fun and functional. I know I will definitely use the tea towel and the nail butter. I will probably end up doing a mini lemonade stand this weekend with my daughter just so we can use the tags! I am really sad to find out about Poppy Parcel being sold and I truly hope that someone does pick up the reigns soon!
