Disappointment in my November Birch Box led me on a late night search for an even better monthly beauty box. I singed up for an Ipsy Glam Bag, which I will receive my first bag in December. (I am super excited for Ipsy) December at the time was so far away and I wanted something better right then and there. I pursed my favorite subscription box blogs and scoured online reviews that led me to totalbeauty.com.
The Total Beauty.com collections are the ultimate beauty goodie box, chock full of trial size cosmetics samples. Best part is that there is no subscription required. You can buy one or as many boxes as you fancy. You will get makeup samples and other beauty samples from the Total Beauty.com editor’s favorite brands, making it easy to test out beauty products and find your favorites before you spend money on the full-sized versions.
Total Beauty partnered with the home shopping giant HSN to create a collection of 9 deluxe makeup and skin care products. I was intrigued by the products and had to have the box. The collection is selling for $19.95 with free shipping on HSN.com. Since I had to have the box I typed in my credit card number and waited for it to arrive.
“What did I get in my Totalbeauty.com HSN Collection Box?” Oh I am so glad you asked! Let’s find out!
Totalbeauty.com HSN Collection:
*Benefit the POREfessional Pore Primer – Helps temporarily minimize the appearance of pores
*Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials – Shadow primer and upper eye brightener
*Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil – Helps reduce breakage caused by styling bleached, heat straightened and chemically-relaxed hair
*Wei East China Herbal Intensive Eye Treatment Pads – Soothes eye area and helps leave eyes feeling fresh and looking bright
*Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage – Smoothes, temporarily lifts and tightens skin’s overall appearance
———-> This stuff is awesome! I had a few blemishes on my face and they were gone after I rinsed the product off. I loved it so much that I plunked down $55.00 and bought the entire Serious Skincare Glyoclic line. I can’t wait for it to arrive.
*Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – Hourglass-shaped brush separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection
——————> 1, best name ever for a mascara. 2. It wasn’t gloopy and it made my lashes look long and sexy. I will be buying the full-sized product as soon as the sample size runs out.
*Elysee YouthSpan Tinted Veil – Visibly transforms skin immediately with a self-adjusting, natural-looking wash of color
*M. Asam Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream – Helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
*Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream – Helps provide softness, comfort and smoothness to dry hands
——————-> It is winter in Minnesota and my hands are surely showing it. So I cracked open this hand cream and gave it a whirl on the night I got my box. My hands instantly felt soft and smooth, the scent was amazing too.
I have been pretty busy lately and have not had time to crack open all of the samples I received in my box. The HSN Collection has something for everyone and it would make a great holiday gift.
If you would like to have a HSN Collection box of your very own….. then go to http://www.hsn.com/shop/beauty/bs You will be glad that you did. The box is $19.95 with free shipping. I ordered my box on a Thursday November 14th and it was on my doorstep on Wednesday November 21. That is what I call super fast shipping!
