I just love when I come across a brand or concept that speaks my language.
When I first heard about BabbleBoxx, I was thrilled to learn that there was a service that would allow me to sample several different products all at once! My box (featured above) is Staycation inspired and included all the essentials for a fun little Staycation here in Austin. (A staycation was high on my list, as someone that’s always working from home and needs a little break every now and then. 💁🏻 I won’t be taking any trips this year until the end of the Summer, so this little box couldn’t have arrived at a better time!)
WHAT IT IS:
BabbleBoxx works as a party in a box! Depending on the theme of the box, each box contains a hand-picked selection of favorite products designed to inspire you to test-out and try new items & brands! I instantly fell in love with the packaging, and fun branded note-cards that were available inside that highlighted the significance and features of each product to help me learn more. 👏🏻
WHAT’S IN MY BOX:
BALI Comfort Revolution Bra– I’ve been wearing BALI Intimates for quite some time now, and was so excited to try out their comfort revolution bra. What I love about this bra, is that the cool comfort fabric helps you stay comfortable and cool throughout the day. I love wearing it with comfy t-shirts, and workout clothes during these hot Austin days.
Erin’s Faces Deet Free Mosquito Repellent & Sunstick SPF 30 – My mom first shared with me the importance of SPF when I was in middle school! She always told me to apply a little bit, even if I wasn’t planning to go to the pool. Anytime that we step outside, we’re exposed to the sun’s rays and it’s vital to shield against the harmful properties of too much sun exposure. As someone that’s exposed to both a. lots of sun, and b. plenty of mosquitos!… I was thrilled to see both of these products in the box. Erin’s Faces mosquito repellent is deet-free & cruelty free. (A good combo in my book!) And their sunstick is a mineral SPF which I love. PROMO ALERT: You can get 10% off now through September 30th with code: BABBLEBOX05
OMM Thickening Hair Mask & Thickening Oil – I’ve been wanting to try a Hair Mask for a while now, and even better that this one is thickening. I’ve always had thick hair, but I tend to shed A LOT. (And no gal wants to have thinning in her vocab when talking about her hair! 😟) OMM’s nourishing and natural hair mask + thickening oil give you that ‘at home’ luxury feel without having to hit the salon. This holistic, & farm-to-beauty blend helps to strengthen and bring life back into your locks. Use the hair mask for deep conditioning and the thickening oil as a leave-in treatment to nourish and repair damaged hair. P.S. – right now, get 20% off with code: SUMMER, until September 15, 2018!! : Shop OMM
BELLAME Acqua Lumiere Hydrating Moisturizer and Eye Cream – I’m all for adding great products into my skincare routine, and I love Bellame’s blends. Their products are lightweight, but powerful and provide the perfect amount of moisture to your skin. I especially loved trying this eye cream! It helps to soften lines around the eyes (aka crow’s feet areas!), deflates puffiness, and fights to diminish dark circles. Right now, with the purchase of the ACQUA LUMIERE COLLECTION (valued at $22), you can receive a FREE set of six ulta-luxe BELLAME bamboo sourced washcloths.
Faustino I Gran Reserva – As a red wine kinda gal, I was sooo excited to try this! Nathan and I popped open this bottle, and as soon as we did we knew it was going to be amazing. (We could tell by the way the cork had soaked in some of the wine over time!) Bodegas Faustino is Spain’s largest producer of Gran Reserva wines, and they specialize in the aging process. Their aged in French and American oak barrels and are left in the bottle for at least 3 years. (Ours was a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, & Mazuelo from 2005!) It was delicious, and the perfect addition to our Saturday night.
My Ex Life – Stephen McCauley’s latest novel is sassy & fun! The perfect Summer read. This book is a modern day take on all things we as millennials might know a little too well… reconnecting with an ex! After all, that’s what happened to Nathan and I! From High School exes to reconnecting again years later after college… Our story was movie/book worthy, and made me love this read even more! Flatiron Books hit a home-run with this one. 😀 (Learn more about the author here.)
HOW TO USE:
I had so much fun unwrapping and testing out the products in this box! It was was the perfect treat to find on my doorstep for a little at home staycation. All thoughts and opinions on each product are my own, and this partnership is just another way that I can continue to grow and bring fun and exciting new content to Leopard Martini. **Disclaimer: BabbleBoxx is not a subscription box, and is made available to influencers in order to market and test all products in a theme oriented post.**
