Frugal pampering? You bet! Ali’s Bling Box – Review

Moms. We spend all day attending to the needs of those around us.  We drool over cute clothes for our kids.  We spend the extra budget money on that toy the little one has been dying to have.  We all know it, we all say it, but it is true.  Generally speaking we put ourselves last.

This is particularly true when money is tight.  But what if you could pamper yourself with skincare products, jewelry, and other accessories every month?  What if it was affordable?

I’m in!

Ali’s Bling Box is a “beauty-of-the-month club” for women (yes, moms I’m talking to you too).  Each month Ali’s Bling Box sends out a box filled with about $100 worth of name brand fashion and beauty products.  The products you receive are never the “leftovers” or discontinued products, and are always trendy, name brand, and high quality.

So, how much is this $100 a month pampering going to cost you?  Just $30 a month, and that includes shipping! That’s, what, about the cost of a pedicure?

And that is just what I received in my Bling Box this month!

Call me crazy, but I’ve never in my life had a professional pedicure!  I just can’t see the point of budgeting $30 to $50 a month for my feet.  I’m often ashamed of the way I take care of my feet. Imagine my delight when I received a OPI pedicure kit that will last me through several home pedicures, and all of it for the cost of what I’d pay for just one pedicure at the salon!

My Bling Box contained:

  1. Orange Sticks (or cuticle sticks)
  2. OPI Drip Dry: a nail coat that will dry your nails in 60 seconds.
  3. Pedicure by OPI for a soothing foot soak.
  4. Outrageous Neons from OPI

The Pedicure by OPI alone retails for $29!

Okay, and because I’m so frugal I actually went to and checked the prices on there.  While you can purchase all these items, at deeply discounted prices, for well under $100 on Amazon, it is still going to cost you significantly more than $30.  I came up with a number in the $50 range! So, yes, I’d say that $30 is an AMAZING steal!

Ordering is exciting (you never know what’s going to be in the next box…could be a pair of shoes!) and easy.  You can sign up for one month or for multiple months (up to 1 year).  Shipping is FREE! And you can pay by PayPal (which I appreciate) or by credit card.

So if you love to pamper yourself and want your husband to be impressed by how frugal you are, stop over at Ali’s Bling Box and check it out!

  1. What a neat way to be able to pamper yourself
  2. I like these! I went to school for nails so gave a lot of pedicures and got them to before finishing the classes. It is always nice to have something to pamper yourself.
  3. This looks pretty cool. It's like getting a Birthday present every month!
