Guide Review - Review of My Pretty Pink Box

Recently I was contacted by Linda Granillo, the person behind "My Pretty Pink Box", informing me of their launch and offering to send me the box for October. I love samples and have been eager to see a company that does a sample program without making the consumer spend an arm and a leg. So, I immediately excepted the offer and then anxiously waited to see what would come inside the box.

Once it arrived, the packaging was very slim-lined and pretty. Inside I found six different sample bags, some with multiple samples. One of the sample bags included a full-sized lip gloss tin, which was very nice. Even though the companies can change each month, here are the companies I received samples from:

    • e.l.f Cosmetics
    • The Body Candy Shop
    • Mark by Avon
    • Tu Bella Perfumed Body Oil and Beauty
    • Dash Minerals Makeup and Skincare
    • PRAI Beauty Products

I enjoyed trying, smelling, and feeling all of the products that were sent. Honestly I have never used Mark (by Avon) products and yet I have to say that I have fallen in love with their Glow Baby Glow lip gloss. I also believe I may have found a new favorite fragrance company with Tu Bella. The sample of "1943" reminded me of Chanel 22, which is my all-time favorite heavier fragrance. Overall, the bottom line for "My Pretty Pink Box" is that it is definitely a great idea that gives all of us a chance to try some really great smaller companies. Compared to some of the other beauty sampling programs, My Pretty Pink Box should be at the top of your must-have list. The fact of having to pay very little for a beauty box is wonderful, and what a great boxed gift to come home to when you have had a hectic day. My Pretty Pink Box is definitely a 5-star idea for all women.
