Hey guys! When I was on my way out the door for work yesterday morning I saw the little pink box that I’m always excited to see in my mail, my Birchbox! I subscribed to this after months and months of watching unboxings on YouTube and thinking how amazing they look, and I haven’t been as happy as I thought I would be with it, but it’s still well worth the price of only 10$ a month! Here’s what I got this month:
BTW: This months box is SO CUTE! I love the packaging and always save these little boxes for Christmas and birthdays!
•theBalm Cosmetics Frat Boy shadow/blush– full size $21
I was really happy to see this in my box! I’m a huge fan of the balm, their MaryLou-Manizer being my favorite highlight of all time now, I’m excited to try out this product! Off the bat the only issue I had is how small the little compact they give you is, it’s going to be nearly impossible to get any product with a blush brush, but I will try my best! It’s a gorgeous pale peachy pink that looks matte but I think has a slight sheen to it. This looks like it’ll make a great eyeshadow as well.
•Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm– full size 16.50
I am really excited to try this product. On the card Birchbox sends you it says, “100% natural formula rehydrates skin. It can also soothe sunburns, tame unruly brows, and nourish cuticles”. Off that bat I know this is something I’ll try out, and then I read the back of the bottle too which was even better. It claims to treat dry lips, dry skin, prime your lips for lipstick, add shine to your cheeks, gloss for your eyes, a glue for eye glitter and a base for mixing pigments! This sounds amazing and I cannot wait to try it!
•RUSK Texture Spray – full size $18
I love receiving any type of hair spray. This is a dry finishing spray with medium hold that, “gives any hair volume and shape while keeping its natural bounce”. I’m all for volume spray so I’m excited to try this out. I also am not a fan of strong hold hairsprays and can’t seem to find a perfect hairspray for my preference, this just might be the one!
•Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromic Bath & Shower Gel- full size $18
Oddly enough, a few nights ago I was thinking about how a nice hot bath some with candles and music would be amazing right now. Perfect timing for me to get this in the mail! It’s infused with mint, peppermint, and basil. It says apply to wet skin or into a running hot bath for a’ “wonderfully frothy soak”. Can’t wait to give this a try!
•Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliatinng Polish- full size $24
This is a daily scrub to exfoliate your skin. It claims to be gentle and for all skin types, but gives strong exfoliation. I love love love exfoliating my skin, it always makes me feel so great so I’m always excited to get one! The smell of this isn’t really pleasant but that doesn’t bother me. It also definetly is not filled in the bottle, I really had to push to get some out so that kind of sucks but I’m perfectly fine with it!
Overall I’m really happy with this box! The only thing I don’t enjoy too much is I’m a makeup junkie, and not a skincare, hair or body junkie, which is what I mostly got. I always hope for more makeup in my next one and always review my boxes online! Hope you enjoy and hope to hear some opinions on these products or your box!
