October MightyFIX Box

MightyNest is a website that sells natural, organic and non-toxic products. Basically they have done all the research for you. They also have a monthly subscription box called The MightyFix. Each month they will handpick a singular solution that allows you to live more mindfully. The price of living more mindfully is just $10 a month with shipping included AND if you want to order something from the MightyNest store just add it to your MightyFix box and it all ships for free! In addition your MightyFix box is guaranteed to have a value of at least $10 and they are not samples but full size products. There really is a lot of cool stuff on the website so if you get a chance check it out. 

I like this box so much that I ended up subscribing yearly.

Price: $10 a month. Available in the US only and ships from Evanston, Illinois.

The Good:

Full Size: The items sent are NOT samples. They are full size items and things that are sold in their online shop.

Donation: 15% of every purchase, including the subscription box goes back to a school of your choice. 

Gift: Need a gift? They offer 3, 6, or 12 months subscriptions. 

The Not So Good:

You might end up with a product you don't need.

MightFIX Box

Contents of the MightyFix box:

Meliora all-purpose home cleaner Value = $9.99

Meliora soap flakes. Value $1.00

The total value of this box is $10.99. I'm curious to try this cleaner. I'll be honest I'm pretty partial to my chlorox wipes which are far from all natural. I'm willing to try this though. 

Verdict: I'm still very happy with this subscription.

September ipsy bag - Glamazon

ipsy sends out a glam bag with 4-5 samples and a makeup bag for $10 a month with shipping included. If you sign up yearly it's $110 which brings the price down the $9.16 a month with shipping included.  I've been with them since 2011 and this is one subscription I am for sure keeping. They constantly have a high product value with products that I use.

Price: $10 a month with no option to skip. Discount offered for a yearly subscription. 

This subscription is available to the US and Canada and ships from Harrisburg, NC.

***I have 4 invites for a free glam bag. It's for first time subscribers only!***

The good:

The samples: Usually you get at least one full size product in each bag.

The packaging: Each month the products come in a cute makeup bag for all your goodies.

Discounts: The almost always offer a discount on any additional purchases you want to make.

Semi-customized: You take a little quiz and your bag is semi-customized with products you will enjoy.

Points: You can earn points for reviews and referrals. You can redeem points for extra goodies in your bag. 

The not so good:

Skip a month? There is no option to skip a month.  You have to cancel.

Renewal. If your a yearly subscriber they automatically charge your credit card for another year when the paid for year is up. I think they should sent out an email prior reminding you that your year is almost up and it will automatically renew.

September ipsy bag

Contents of ipsy bag w/approximate value:

.05 Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. Value = $9.33

.75 oz. Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner. Value = $7.00

Be a Bombshell nail polish in Holy Fuchsia. Value = $6.00

.5 oz. Nuxe Créme Fraiche de beauté masque. Value = $8.33

.04 oz. tréStique mini highlight stick.  Value = $15.00??

makeup bag in black and gold with dancers on it. 

The approximate value of this months bag is approximately $45.66.  This was a pretty good bag for me. The only thing I probably won't use is the nail polish because I have literally hundreds of bottles of polish. I just put up racks and it's ridiculous how much polish I have. The dry conditioner is something new to me. I can totally see using that on the days I don't want to wash my hair but it's looking a little dry. I'm going to get brave and try my hand at highlighting with this highlighter stick. 

Verdict: I'm happy with the products in this bag.
