YouTube Video – Rubybox Unboxing & Demo | August 2014

Rubybox Unboxing YouTube

There’s a new YouTube video waiting for you on my channel – this week I unbox the August 2014 Rubybox.  If you’re anything like me, and can’t wait to see what was included in the box, go check out my video.

I tried something new with this video, not only did I show you guys what I received in this month’s box but I also have a DEMO at the end of the video.  I don’t show you my full makeup routine, but I do show you what I used for my face makeup on that particular day.  I then show you how I use the products I received in the box, as well as which makeup brushes etc I use for makeup application.

I have done full Rubybox unboxing blog posts on the blog, you can take a look here, here and here (I also give you detailed information on what Rubybox is etc in those blog posts).  I’m going to keep it short and sweet with the Rubybox information in this blog post, so here is everything you need to know:

♥  Rubybox is a monthly beauty box subscription service, the box usually includes trial-size and sometimes full-size samples of hair, makeup, skincare and fragrances.

♥  Your Rubybox can be delivered straight to your doorstep or to the post office (whichever is most convenient for you).

♥  The idea is to be able to test out products before you buy the full size product, I’ve had many occasions where I bought a full size product only to find out it doesn’t work for my skin type / hair type and then feel like I have wasted money.

♥  The Rubybox subscription is R 169,00 per month, which includes delivery.

♥  Although the contents of the box are always a surprise, the products are matched to the beauty profile you fill out, so you receive goods that are best suited to your beauty needs.

♥  The RubyRands loyalty program lets Rubies earn points by reviewing products, completing surveys and shopping online, which they can redeem when they shop in the Rubybox online beauty store.

♥  When you sign up for a rubybox subscription, you can opt out at any time (there are no cancellation fees or anything like that).

♥  You can sign up for the September 2014 Rubybox now, and a little birdie told me a bracelet will be included in the box (amongst other beauty goodies).

I hope you enjoy watching this video, I enjoyed filming and editing it!

Please let me know if this is something you would enjoy watching i.e. doing an unboxing video with a demo at the end?  And also remember to ‘like’ my video on YouTube if you did enjoy it, it’s my way of knowing whether I’m on the right track with these videos.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel here – that way you will always see my videos as they are loaded.

Happy weekend, everyone!
