Hi loves! I recently received a PINCHme VIP Welcome Box and can’t wait to share the contents with you today!
PINCHme is a totally FREE subscription box service that provides you with samples of your choice from some of the world’s leading brands based on your household and shopping habits. All they ask in exchange is that you provide an honest opinion of the samples received by completing a short survey once you’ve tested out the sample products. Easy Peasy!
Let’s take a closer look at what was included in the PINCHme VIP Welcome Box I received.
Essie Polish Trio
First up is that awesome essie polish trio! Included in this kit were essie Prime & Pop Base Coat for Neons, neon polish in Gallery Gal and Gel Setter Top Coat.
I was able to use the trio last weekend and was extremely pleased with the application and pop of opaque neon it delivered. As most nail enthusiasts know, neon polishes can be very difficult to apply (cue streaky mess that never reaches full opacity, even after 4 frustrating coats). Much to my delight Gallery Gal was opaque in 2 coats and the Prime & Pop base really added that electric pop of color that is often illusive with neon polishes. What’s more, with the Gel Setter topper I was able to get a full 4 days of chip-free, vibrant tips (probably would’ve been chip-free for even longer, however I was ready to put something else on my digits). Winning!
POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser
The Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser included in the PINCHme VIP Welcome Box is by far the most moisturizing cleanser I’ve ever used. It’s actually 50% moisturizer so it’s the perfect cleanser to use in the dry winter months or year-round if your skin is dry. Couple it’s moisturizing properties with the fact that it also removes makeup and mascara and you’ve got yourself a keeper! My only gripe with this product is that I had to wipe it off with a wet washcloth which really isn’t my jam.
Covergirl Products & Coupons
Also included in the PINCHme VIP Welcome Box were several products and coupons from Covergirl:
I tried out the Covergirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Give Me Guava (630) and was pleased with it’s shimmery peach pout and staying power. The formula is a bit sticky so I applied lip balm before applying this gloss and it was perfect!
The other Covergirl product included in the PINCHme VIP Welcome Box was the Perfect Point Plus Eye Pencil in Black Onyx (below). This eyeliner is great for a soft liner look as the pencil is squared-off and includes a smudger tip on the opposite end. It also has a built-in sharpener which is a huge plus! That said, I dislike how the name of this product is misleading; “Perfect Point” is not accurate, as the tip is squared-off and basically inhibits achieving a perfect point!
Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash
Overall I liked the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter. The fragrance was refreshing and great for men and women plus it’s hydrating power was top-notch. One thing to note: it’s a creamy body wash that doesn’t have a ton of lather, but that’s what makes it so hydrating.
Scotch Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth
I’ve actually fallen in love with the Scotch Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth included in the PINCHme VIP Welcome Box! Before trying this dish cloth, I used to have sponges next to my kitchen sink that always got pretty grungy after several uses. The great thing about the Scrubbing Dish Cloth is it’s many non-scratch textures that include smooth on one side and plastic micro-dots on the underside. The micro-dots are great at removing gunky cheese and crusty foods from all types of dishes and pots and pans. What’s more, the gunk doesn’t stick to the cloth but easily washes off under a stream of water! Love this, as my sponges always seemed to retain the crud. Plus you can launder the scrubbing cloth in the washing machine without it falling apart. I’m a huge fan of this product!
Carbona Color Grabber
I never really notice how much my colored clothing “bleeds” when it’s in the wash until it’s too late (that moment when you pull a pastel shirt out of the wash and it’s suddenly a grungy gray = story of my life). How helpful that there’s now a microfiber cloth you can throw in the wash that grabs any loose dyes and keeps them from staining your light-colored clothing (see before and after photo below). The Carbona Color Grabber with Microfiber will save me so much money in ruined clothing!
Hydralyte Effervescent Electrolyte Tablets
The Hydralyte Effervescent Electrolyte Tablets are a great item to have on-hand for help with emergency dehydration episodes from illness, exercise or over-exertion. The berry flavor wasn’t overpowering and the drink has a great electrolyte-to-sugar ratio (it’s low on the sugar side, which is healthier). I felt like the tablets took a little too long to dissolve, but other than that these Hydralyte Tablets were great.
SlimFast 100 Calorie Snack Bites
My son and I happily shared the package of SlimFast 100 Calorie Snack Bites in Chocolate Pretzel that was included in my PINCHme VIP Welcome Box. They were super yummy and had the perfect balance of sweet and salty. One caveat though: the ingredient list indicates that these are “partially produced with genetic engineering.” If that’s a deal breaker for you then you should definitely skip these! If not, enjoy! 🙂
And that’s the scoop on what was included in my PINCHme VIP Welcome Box! I found the quality of these samples to be excellent and am looking forward to checking out what samples are available next month.
