It's time for this month's review of the products I received in my Birchbox. There were some really great products this month. If you're wondering what a Birchbox is, or if you want to see previous Birchbox posts, click HERE.
Harvey Prince Skinny Chic:
Finally! I perfume from a Birchbox that I can actually enjoy! This "zesty blend of apple, mint, and lotus blossom" is really fresh and light. This is a scent that you could wear every day. It claims that it helps fight cravings, but I didn't see that effect (or maybe I was just extra hungry today.. who knows?).
(Full size - $21-55)
LASHEM Measurable Difference Lash Gel Serum:
The card and the Birchbox website claim that I got the Gel Serum, but the actual sample I received is the Double Trouble Mascara. It's a pretty decent mascara. The sample sized brush is tough to use, but the full sized product is probably much easier to handle.
(Full Size for the Gel Serum - $69.99)
Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo:
I have blonde and oily hair, so I use a daily clarifying shampoo every time I wash my hair. So I was excited to get a large sample of this shampoo. However, when I used it, it felt like I was putting glue in my hair. It didn't lather well at all, and left my hair feeling stringy. For a clarifying shampoo, I felt like I left more residue in my hair than any regular shampoo! It also had a pretty unpleasant scent. Too bad.
(Full Size - $32)
theBalm cosmetics Hot Mama:
This is a two-in-one blush and highlighter. It gives a nice, subtle glow, and it flattering to my skin tone. This could be used every day, or to amp up your regular makeup routine a bit.
(Full Size - $20)
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream:
This moisturizer provides your face with light, non-greasy hydration. I was very pleased with this product. I noticed that my skin felt just as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning!
(Full Size - $42)
