Review: PinchMe New York Fashion Week Box

I was lucky enough to receive a New York Fashion Week box from PinchMe. I already receive samples from them on a monthly basis (or whenever they email me) so I was really happy to get an email abut the fashion week box. I had NO idea how much would be in it!

Read on to see what's all there!!!
So PinchMe is a fun website I belong to where you can get samples each month. Once you receive them, try them out and review them. Then you simply wait till the next time samples are up. You will get an email when samples are live, but you really should check the website at least once a day (I try to) to make sure of the date. When you log in it will tell you when samples are going to be live. They go quick! So you want to make sure you're on at the right time!

The next samples will be live Tuesday 9/23, so I'll be sure to log in and get mine! You can sign up to PinchMe here. Make sure to fill out your profile 100% so you can get your samples! 
My current PinchMe box was sent the day after I received the Fashion Week box... Here is what is in my sample box:
An Allegra sample, a facial mask (which was also in my Fashion Week box, below is some info on it), wet naps and a card from Hallmark that says "You Made a Human" on the outside, and "Congratulations" on the inside. Love it! My past samples included Beyonce Rise perfume, Sinful Colors nail polish and Garnier hair products, just to name a few.

But let's get back to this box! There was so much packed into it, I didn't know where to begin! I've always wanted a swag bag from a swanky party, and I feel like I'm finally part of the cool crowd. 

Let me show each item, and tell  you what I have! Any links attached to products are NOT affiliate links. They take you directly to the website to buy or get product info. I don't make any money, I'm just helping you out! 

Essenza Luxury Hand Soap. It's Rosemary Mint scented, and smells fabulous. Its also really nice on my hands when I use it. Even my husband said the smell "isn't so bad", and from him that's a compliment! lol. After a quick Google search I've found it on Walgreens website for $2.99!

Real Techniques makeup brush. It is the Expert Face Brush. It is ultra firm for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation. It retails for $9 on the website. The brush doesn't shed, it stands on its own, and feels AMAZING on my face. I will be buying more from this brand!

So for this lip color, using the flash really doesn't help show the color, and neither does not using the flash. There is NO way to do this color justice! I will be posting a photo later to my Instagram to show the color on me. It is a peachy-orange.. That's the best way I can describe it. I love the color and have been wanting a color like this! Its Boots No7 High Shine Lip Color. Mine is Tickle. They are at Target under $8 each!

 Revlon by Marchesa File 'N Peel 6-in-1. Each side has 3 sheets of file. One side is to shape, one side to smooth. Once the side is worn down, rather than throwing the whole file away, simply peel back a layer! This is going to be amazing. I've already used it once to file a nail that I chipped, and it was nice. Not too gritty, not too hard. I loved it. This is $3.99 at, I'm sure you can find it at Walmart, Target an CVS as well. There are other products in the line, you can view them here.

vbeaute samples. I received the following samples: Buying Time (every day creme), Evidence Eraser (gentle foaming cleanser), Eye Never (nourishing repair eye cream) and Undercover Agent (anti-wrinkle protecting serum). I'm excited to try this. I've seen photos on Instagram of people and they claim its worked wonders. Particularly I'm excited about Evidence Eraser, Eye Never and Buying Time. I don't have wrinkles, but it never hurts to start preventing! These items are a bit pricier, but not ridiculously expensive. For the size, I say the price isn't too bad. Check out these and the other products available on their website here. I'll be posting on my Instagram when I use these!

The Bobble water bottle is something I've not heard of. A quick search shows these at Walmart and Target for $9.99, which is average for bottles like these. The water is filtered as you drink, as you can see the filter at the top of the bottle. The bottle is BPA free. Check out all the people using this by checking out the hashtag #waterrevolution on social media! Here in Arizona, we can't just drink the tap water. Its hard and you can taste the chlorine. So people buy water in gallons and bottles. We buy gallons, and refill them for $0.20 each at the spring water station by our grocery store. We pour the water into 1 liter bottles that we purchased. They are plastic, but we reuse them over and over again. I can't wait to see how this tastes using the tap water.

When I first saw this one, I thought "great, another old lady product". But then I saw that it helps with dark circles and puffiness! I need that! I have some pics where it looks like I got hit by Ray Rice (haha!) but in reality, I just have dark circles. So I'm definitely excited about this! Another one that I'll be posting on my Instagram at a later date, so be sure to follow me! Depending on what store you shop at, this can range from $15 to $18.

Do I really need to say anything about these? Kleenex to go tissue pack. We love these around here. Someones nose is always acting up thanks to allergies, so I'm excited I have yet another pack to throw in my purse (I haven't had to buy any for a while LOL).

This one I had to read the label a few times to actually realize it wasn't an iced tea flavored water enhancer that has been sweetened with Stevia... No, its liquid sugar! Ok, liquid Stevia that I can take with me to sweeten drinks on the go! This one little bottle holds 48 servings! While I don't go out of my way to buy these types of things, I do like to use them! I'm excited to try this on the go! The website says it dissolves quickly in both hot and cold drinks. I couldn't find a price online, but I can't imagine this being more than $5. Check out the website here.

I've never used Tom's of Maine deodorant before. I tried it out and right away I loved the scent. Its longs lasting with 24 hours of odor protection. Being in Arizona that's helpful! LOL. This deodorant, in case you don't know, is all natural and aluminum free. They also have mens deodorants now! It's price varies from store to store, but its average is between $3.49 and $3.99.

The EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge is amazing. I absolutely love it. When you buy it, it feels hard as a rock. But when it gets wet it softens up and feels wonderful on your face. When done using it, simply squeeze all the water out, and let sit on a dry surface - it will turn into a rock again! I almost mistook it for a pumice stone, then I read the box. I used it last night and it made my face feel wonderful. These can be found at Ulta for $5.99.

When I saw this, I was a bit excited. I need to try a new mask, and I think this may be great for my face. This mask claims to nourish, plump and quench thirsty skin. I can't wait to try it. The directions say put it on, lay down, and after 10 mins take it off and rub whats left on your skin in. Don't rinse it, leave the stuff on your face overnight. Once I do this I'll post pics before and after! Again, follow my Instagram! You can get a 4 pack at Ulta for $9.99. 

Do I really need to explain this?! I could have used this for my son a few weeks ago LOL. We will be using these again soon, I'm sure.

I've never really been a fan of 100 calorie snack bags. But this one... omg. It was yummy! It only has three ingredients: popcorn, sunflower oil and salt. Not a lot of salt either, just enough to taste. I loved it! I can't wait to find these in the store. The website has a store locator for you to find it near you. By me, its at Sprouts, Valero (gas station), Walgreens, Fry's, Costco, Sams Club and Walmart. I'll be looking for it!

And finally, a PinchMe shirt. Its too small, but its OK. Its really cute :)

The only thing that is not pictured was a Skinny Cow wafer bar. When it got here, it was melted (thanks to the Arizona heat still hitting 100 most days), so I threw it into the fridge to hopefully save it, and it was saved! I just ate it before I could take a photo! I've never had Skinny Cow before, but now I'm determined to buy some. That was yummy!
