Birchbox February 2014

Birchbox February 2014 review…
This month’s theme was: Step. Pose. Repeat. It’s awards season.
Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Conditioner: I guess I’ve only heard of dry shampoo.  I probably have more use for dry conditioner than I do dry shampoo.  I am wondering if I use this after the gym if it’d help get the snarls out for the remainder of the day?  It’s going in my gym bag.  This item was my favorite out of the box.
Benefit It’s Potent!  Eye Cream: Also a favorite from this box.  Love an eye cream.  I like this sample size too.  This little box was so cute!  I tried a little.  I never know if they actually work ya know, but it can’t hurt right?  (unless it makes you break out in a rash or something awful, it can’t hurt…)
Juicy Couture Couture La La Malibu: can’t go wrong with a perfume sample.  I like the smell it’s a little citrus-y which I like.
W3ll people universalist multi use color stick: I can’t think of anything I’d want to make more red right now.  I am SO pale from it being winter and everything… my nose is red from blowing it from being sick.  I just was not into this sample.  Maybe in a few months.
Benefit Big Easy: it’s kind of cool that this isn’t available in stores yet… but I don’t consider these things a real sample.  It’s good for one use and who really likes to open these things and use them?  They are in magazines.  The actual full size item looks promising though.

Birchbox December 2013 Sparkle and Shine

Ya know what else came!!  My Birchbox December 2013 Sparkle and Shine box!




it’s blurry I know.

Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray: I already received this in a julep mystery box.  I hardly use hair spray so this went into the gift pile.
Beekind Body Lotion: This is great for this time of year.  I love nice lotion and my hands dry out really bad.  My mom and I tried to figure out what it smells like and we decided it smelled like lemon drops.  Like sugar and lemon.  Quite a nice scent.  The lotion is not thick so it’s probably meant for your body like it says in the name… but I’d like to use it on my hands and keep it in my bag.
Emily’s Chocolate Covered Fortune Cookie: I wanted to eat this immediately but I stopped myself.  It’s going in the stocking stuffer pile (so if you’re reading this and and I am making you a stocking this year – sorry I ruined the surprise but get excited because this looks amazing).
Eslor Skincare System: I typically don’t love packet samples but this could be fun to try one night.
I don’t know what the heck this thing is and I don’t have a smart phone.
Secret Agent Beauty Secret Lip Affair Nourishing & Plumping Lip Gloss: Uhhhhh… I was pretty excited about getting this annnddd… it’s missing.  I contacted birchbox and hopefully they’ll send me it??
