Hi! It’s Angie, one of Collin’s Sidekicks!

We recently posted a deal on Beauty Brands Discovery Boxes and several readers questioned the value of these boxes and the sizes of the items that are included in each box!

So in effort to answer these questions (and to snatch up some beauty products for myself), I decided to purchase both of these Beauty Boxes. Yep, I am just a team player like that! 😉

On a side note, I was more than OK to purchase both of these boxes as I have actually purchased from Beauty Brands in the past and have always been extremely pleased!

So, here is the lowdown!

My opinion…

These boxes are worth every penny if you enjoy high quality name brand items. Each box contains 14-15 pieces and they are a size that is perfect for giving these products a try before you purchase the full size item.

I purchased both boxes and decided to go through them and price check each individual item with either Ulta or Amazon.

If the item was not available in the same size at either store, I calculated the individual price for the item(s) by looking at the full size price and dividing by the size of the item in the Beauty Brands Discovery Boxes!

Check out my findings!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
