I was subscribed to Ipsy and Glossybox and I was consistently unsatisfied with the products I received, so I thought I would switch over to Birchbox. This is my first box and I’m so excited I made the decision to subscribe! The products are great…especially the MAKE Face Gloss! It’s my favorite product from this box…you’ll find out why in my review below! Anyway, this box is worth $89.50, so for $10, it’s TOTALLY worth it! Scroll down to read my thoughts about all of the products I received! 🙂
Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel – Full Size, $18
My skin is really sensitive, so I do not use shower gels on my body. I am more of a Dove soap for sensitive skin kind of girl. It does have a semi strong smell to it. According to the packaging, it is aromatic, so I am assuming that is why it is a little strong. But, if you do not like strong scents, then I wouldn’t recommend it. However, based on the reviews, some people enjoyed the smell and found it to be relaxing. It’s always a preference thing…so if you can find your way to a Birchbox store, I would recommend you taking a whiff before buying.
MAKE Face Gloss – Full Size, $25
OMG! OMG! Oh My God!!! This face gloss is AMAZING!!!! I have been a vaseline girl my entire life (read about my obsession here). But, since trying this out, I can’t say whether or not I will be using vaseline on my face anymore. This gloss keeps my face moisturized for the entire day and a little goes a LOOOONGGGG way. My skin is not shiny or oily looking, it just looks perfectly moisturized. It also leaves my skin feeling super soft. I love it! It is the perfect moisturizer for my dry skin. Based off of the reviews though, I am not sure if I would recommend this product for people with oily skin because it seems to make oily skin extra oily.
LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Smoke Screen – Full Size, $10
This eyeshadow is awesome! The pigment is super rich and the formula is long lasting. It stayed on for hours and hours without fading. I had to use an oil based makeup remover to get it off of my eyes. I tried wiping it off with a tissue just to see if there would be any transfer, and there wasn’t. I definitely recommend this eyeshadow. You’ll love it!
Living proof.* Perfect hair Day (PhD) dry shampoo – Full Size, $22
I have never used a dry shampoo. However, I have been considering trying one since I only wash my hair every two weeks. It would be nice to have a little refresher at the start of week 2. Enter Living Proof PhD. The smell is so fresh and it leaves my scalp and hair feeling very fresh and adds some moisture. I am not sure if I sprayed too much, because the next day, my hair felt heavier and kind of greasy…which it should have been removing. Lol! But, with that being said, I am not completely turned off to the idea of dry shampoo or this brand. I will try this one out again and not spray as much and I will probably try out another brand or two before committing to buy this in the full size bottle.
BioRepublic Skincare Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Sheet Mask – Set of 3 masks, $14.50
I have never used a face mask before, but I loved this one. It smelled soooo good and it left my skin feeling moisturized and clean…although, a tad sticky once I removed the mask. Butttt….the next day I woke up with a few small bumps on my face, so I am not sure if it irritated my skin or not. I will be trying some of the other face masks offered by BioRepublic if I can find one for sensitive skin. Head over to my Instagram page to see a picture of me trying out this mask! You’ll get a kick out of it! Lol!
