Paradise does exist. I spent the afternoon there. Just one of the many fairy tale places I take retreat guests, friends and family. Wouldn’t you say it’s well worth the 40min hike and 4 wheeling?! My jaw will always drop. It never fails to take my breath away.

PINCHme NYFW Box Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

For those who don’t know, PINCHme is a FREE sampling service that allows its members to choose samples and have them mailed directly to their home! In order to qualify for future samples, you must review each product on the PINCHme website, but no worries, the reviews are super short and does not take much time!

This box was not given to all PINCHme users, it was a prize given to winners on Twitter a few weeks ago! 

Although I was not one of the winners, PINCHme was kind enough to send me this box to review! This box featured numerous brand partners from the NYFW Event!

Just one look at the contents got me super excited! 

Here’s a closer look at the contents!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Revlon by Marchesa File N’ Peel 6 in 1 Nail File

Toms Long Lasting Deodorant in Wild Lavender

I was so excited to see the Real Techniques brush because I’ve been in search of a new foundation brush and this one works really well! I’ve been using it for 5 days now and I’m hooked!

I was also excited to see this nail file in my box because I’ve read great reviews! I think it’ll be a great replacement for the one I have now! 

I LOVE Toms Deodorant, however, I’m more of a fan of the roll ons but these are great too! I got one of these in my PINCHme boxes a month or two ago but I’m glad to have an extra! 

ROC Retinol Correction Eye Cream

Renew Sleep Spa Mask

Kisstixx Lip Balm Duo

No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Tickle

VBeute Anti-Aging Samples 

The Eye Cream and Anti Aging samples I’m sure my mom will use more than me so I’ll be giving them to her! I know I won’t be using the Lip Crayon but I’m sending it to a friend so it won’t go to waste! 

My mom actually used the Sleep Mask last night and she fell in love! We’re definitely going to be purchasing a whole set soon! As for the Lip Balms, I really want to use them but I already have 4 open lip balms that need to be used up first! I’m debating them on sending them to a friend or keeping them for the future! I’m intrigued because of how one’s sweet and the other’s sour and I’ve never tried this brand before so I’d love to see how it compares to the Chapstick and Deco Naturals I use now!

Essenza Luxury Hand Soap in Rosemary Mint

ecoTools Facial Sponge

Advanced Healing Blister Band-Aids

Packet of Kleenex

I love love love the hand soap! It smells great and definitely feels luxurious! I’m super excited to try the facial sponge, I feel like it will definitely help clean my skin better! I’m glad to see the Band-Aids because you can never have too many of them! They’re perfect for trips or just days you’re out and about for a long period of time! I was super happy to see the packet of Kleenex as well because it’s the time of year where I always get a cold! It’ll be perfect to keep in my bag!

Skinny Pop Popcorn

Skinny Cow Raspberry Crisp Candy Bar

Bobble Water Bottle

Pure Via Sweetener

I think the popcorn will be a great snack, especially since I have exams right around the corner and need my munchies! 

I’m not going to lie, I immediately tore open the candy bar when I got this box! I couldn’t resist! I’m always hesitant when there’s fruit mixed in with chocolate but the raspberry wasn’t overwhelming at all! This bar tasted great, I’m totally going to buy some more!

I’ve heard about the Bobble water bottle but wasn’t sure to get it or not. I’m definitely going to put it in use and see how I like it! I think it’s the perfect size for days when I only have one class to attend! The only downside to the Bobble is that you have to replace the filter every 2-3 months and that can get pricey!

The Pure Via is completely new to me but I’m excited to try it! 

This NYFC PINCHme box blew my mind! I was so impressed with all the full sized and sample sized products that were in the box! I’m really excited to try all of these brands and see what I love the most! 

PINCHme did a great job with putting these boxes together! I’m excited to see what other contests they hold for everyone!

If you’re not signed up on PINCHme yet, I recommend creating an account as soon as possible! New samples will be released on Tuesday, October 21st at 12PM EDT!

If you have any questions about PINCHme, any of the products I received, or anything else don’t hesitate to message me! I love hearing from you all!

I received this item in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion. All opinions expressed are my own and I would not promote an item if I did not think it would spark interest to my readers.

Hello hello!

I recently teamed up with Swagbucks to become a Swagbucks Influencer!

For those who don’t know, Swagbucks is an online rewards program where you can earn points and redeem them for various gift cards, paypal cash, and more! In the past few years I have redeemed numerous Starbucks, Itunes, Amazon, Paypal, and Sephora gift cards!

As an Influencer they are giving every new member that registers using my referral link 70 Swagbucks to start out with! All you have to do is click my referral link AND where it says “I have a signup code”, enter “pri1991” (without the quotation marks).
