Earlier this week I shared my a breakdown of the current beauty sample box subscription services being offered in Australia. Today I am doing the same for the USA. They are a great gift idea and if you still haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, consider a gift subscription to one of these services.

The USA has more people and more beauty brands than most other countries, so the offering of these services come in more variety. New ones are popping up all the time, and others are dropping off, so consider this a snapshot of the market at this point in time.

If you are not sure what a beauty sample box subscription service is all about, read my explanation.

Unwrapping beauty parcels is always exciting!

The beauty sample box subscription craze has exploded all over the world. What started off as a really simple idea (and probably dismissed by so many) has turned into big business with women embracing this new beauty service. I for one am a huge fan and think it is a genius idea that I wish I had come up with myself.

We only have a few more days until Christmas and that means your chances of finding a present, getting it and having it under the tree in time is fading fast. That is why today I am going to give you a breakdown of all the beauty sample box subscription services you can take advantage of. Why? Because it is the PERFECT Christmas gift.

What Is A Beauty Sample Box Subscription Service?

If you haven’t heard of them yet, don’t worry, it is still pretty early days and in my opinion Continue Reading

Did you know that hand sanitisers are now available from places other than your local supermarket or pharmacy? No really, it isn’t just Dettol or Purell cornering the market now. Big brands have realised there is a little OCD in all of us and have created up-market versions. Until recently I had NO IDEA.

First one I found out about was Aesop through a review on Makeup Mole. At the time I loved the idea of it but thought it was really odd for a fancy skincare brand like Aesop to do such a thing. Last month I found out that Jurlique were also releasing one and I was left thinking ‘How crazy are these Australian skincare brands?’. ‘Will anyone buy fancy hand sanitised?’ After pondering for a bit I remembered that OPI have had their Swiss Hand Guard antiseptic gel around for god knows how long.

The above realisations lead to a light bulb moment, and DING, we have a blog post. I finally found some time (and some space on my credit card) to head to Continue Reading

This year the choices are even bigger and better so I’ve rounded up the best beauty advent calendars for you to choose from.

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
