For Unboxing Beauty Finds For Me (beautyfindsforme.com/beautyfindsforme.wordpress.com) Privacy & Disclosure Policy, please click here.
I decided to blog about my beauty boxes and finds. I certainly love makeup and new products and thought this might be fun to do and to share with my friends. I work full time outside of the home as a programmer/analyst.
I have oily skin that can be prone to acne, but aging concerns as I am gettin’ old ~ hyper-pigmentation: damage from both sun and blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles. I have fine, straight, oily hair but lots of it, green eyes with hooded lids, medium-light neutral/warm tone. I wear Mac NW20 and Jouer Nude for comparison. My biggest concerns are fine lines and crepey skin under my eyes, blemishes on my nose and chin and old sun damage hyper-pigmentation spots.
I hope you will enjoy my finds and reviews – please comment! I would love to hear your thoughts and your favorite items too 😀 Please note: If you are trying to promote your own personal blog or website here, I will remove the link. I don’t allow that and I find it to be rude to do so. If you ask me beforehand, I will take it in consideration ~ it should be relevant to what the blog post is about.
Looking for some older blog posts I wrote? I am starting to archive my older blog posts, to make room for new ones! My sister site is Unboxing Beauty Archive and currently contains the following blog posts
- August 2013 to January 2014
Frequently Updated Blogposts
I have some blogs that I update as I find out more information, so I am posting those links here for a handy reference
- My Cheat Sheet on Sulfates ~ The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
- Cleanser pH Tests ~ pH testing on cleansers I have used
I am not paid to write reviews and I purchase all of the items that I review and use, unless otherwise noted. The opinions here are my own and what may work for me may not work for you!
Type of Blog Posts
You will never see me label a blog post a “review” on a foil sample. Unless I have 50 of these foils and use them as a product over a course of days and weeks, not one time, that isn’t a review. That is what I consider an unboxing.
- Unboxings ~ these are blog posts that I do an unboxing of a subscription box or a haul. I may include swatches, texture, color, scent, ingredients and any “adverts” with additional information It is not a review, but just an informational blog post to introduce you to a product. Those products may turn up in an initial impression or product testing review. Unboxings is how my blog began, hence the name of my blog 🙂
- Product Testing ~ I usually try to do these for extended periods of time ~ from 4 to 8 weeks and I will have multiple items in my PT blog post. I want to show how all of these products worked together and I carefully select the products before hand and introduce them slowly into my skincare routine, as to troubleshoot issues (if any). At times, if a product is exceptional, I will have a blog post devoted to it.
- Sponsored Reviews ~ I may get a product for free and will do a review on that product. Depending on the type of product, it could fall into any of these categories: InstaReview, Initial Impressions, Product Testing. I will always disclose when I get a product free for review and I will always be honest in my review. Just because I received it free, doesn’t mean I will give it a glowing review if it doesn’t deserve one.
Some of my readers ask me why I rarely give a negative in-depth review. Writing reviews are very time consuming and I would rather spend the time testing and writing reviews on products that work for me, not ones that were abysmal failures. If a product is really really (and I mean really) bad, I might write up a review to warn others, but since testing products usually mean I have to commit to a month long process (at least), I would never stay that long with a product that doesn’t work for me.
I use a lot of products but I don’t write up reviews on every one of them. It is more enjoyable for me to write about a product that was wonderful to use or that I think is interesting (horse oil, bird poop mask) than to spend hours over a crappy product. Like you, I read other opinions on products to help form a better idea of how a product worked overall. That said, you can find blog posts here where I rant negatively about a product! I also have an IG account @colebiancardi where I post short and sweet reviews on products that don’t make it to my blog! Come and follow me there too.

i love your blog… it makes me want to start one! some other subscription box blogs are ALL NICE ALL THE TIME, even if the items they receive are complete crap! they only write positive things without ever really giving their honest opinion for fear of losing a free monthly box. i love that you write your true feelings about each product and box… it is a huge breath of fresh air! keep up the amazing work!! 🙂
