This month we decided to try something a little different. We received three beauty subscriptions and we reviewed each of them separately, then decided if we were only able to choose one of the subscriptions which would it be. It was so fun to see which box offered the best bang for the buck. Let us know if you agree with our assessment....and if not, which box would you choose?

Our first box was Ipsy. This is actually more of a bag with sample products than an actual box. But nonetheless....this subscription has had its ups and downs in our opinion. We had in past years been avid subscribers of Ipsy but over time grew bored with their almost predictable products. So, we had taken a break for a few years. Recently, we resubscribed to see if Ipsy had changed our minds and impressed us once again.

Ipsy did indeed up their game with this past months beauty bag. We have always loved the collectible bags that Ipsy offered. They are always soooo different in style, use and the quality is always really good. Love their logo that adorns the pull zipper as well. This months bag didn't disappoint at all. Its beautiful! The goodies that they included were far better in diversity than we had experienced in past years. To see the full unboxing with our review please visit our Youtube channel and view our unboxing.

The second box we received was from Macy's a box that we also had subscribed to in previous years. Macy's beauty box has upped it game with deluxe beauty samples (5-6) , it also gives you a coupon for $5 - $10 OFF a $20 or more purchase online or in store at Macy's which is cool extra. But the thing that we loved about this box is that it now offers a little extra gift with each box. Some of the gifts that we've received are a lidded cup with straw, beauty brushes and a few extra cute add ins that we loved.

The third box that we recently found was from Chic Beauty. Chick knows what a beauty box is suppose to be! Chic blew us away with some great full size beauty products in an attractive Chic Beauty Box and also a full size beautiful pallet!!!! And who doesn't love a pallet???!!!! The colors were stunning and the pigment was supreme.

Sooooo with all of that being said....Im sure your asking yourself....who did they pick as the best of the best of these three options....welllllll In our opinion all three was excellent this time around. If we had to choose between Ipsy and Macy's which price wise are about the same price...we would have to choose Macy's for this particular unboxing. Now as a whole.....when we chose between the three options, hands down we went with Chic Beauty Box. Chic offered full size products and a pallet for only a little more than the price of the Ipsy or Macy Box. The quality of the products that Chic Beauty offered in their box was exceptional. In all fairness the quality of the products that Ipsy and Macy's offers are excellent quality, name brand products and for the price point. You receive a good selection and nice presentation. We honestly would recommend any of the three boxes that we reviewed. But for this particular unboxing, we feel that for the price and for the products supplied Chic Beauty Box wins.

How many of us treat our fur babies like family members??? Ok...everyone I know would be on that list. We found a subscription box that is perfect for the dog and puppy families. This box titled Bucket & Bones supplies you with premeasured ingredients, recipes, cookie cutters and packaging supplies to make quality homemade treats at home. The prepackaged supplies that we purchase in the supermarkets have so many chemicals and preservatives in them that we can't even identify. The supplies that Bucket & Bones provide in each subscription box have all wholesome preservatives and nothing that you can't identify. Many pets have allergies to the prepackaged foods and treats and this is also a sure fix by supplying our fur babies with treats that we made from our own kitchen with wholesome ingredients.

This box in our opinion is the perfect gift for a pet owner, children who love baking and cooking, someone looking to start a pet treat business or anyone looking for quality pet treats. As each box offers a new recipe and all of the ingredients to create a boatload of treats your fur baby will be loving the snacks you make for them. However, maybe you would instead like to make these delicious goodies for your local rescue or a friend or family member who has a puppy or a dog. This would be an awesome gift for you as you can make your treats and package them up beautifully in the adorable bags and packaging that Bucket & Bones supplies in each box.

In our box we received the premeasured ingredients....everything we needed was supplied....we also received an adorable butterfly cookie cutter but you could really use any cookie cutter you have a home. included in the box was also the cutest packaging supplies with bone motif on the cute!!!

Each cookie was individually packaged and in perfect condition. The next product we unwrapped was a beautiful light blue metal thermos perfect for taking on hikes, to the gym, pool or beach. Its a well made thermos that will keep hot things hot and cold things cold for quite some time. It looks super cool as well with a sturdy but flexible rubber handle attached to the lid of the thermos. Our last item in the unboxing was a HYPRMV Tee. The tee’s feature a scooped hem and extended length for optimal comfort. The tapered fit is designed to give you a slim secured look. The quality is exceptional.
