Birchboxin’ It-November Box

Birchboxin’ It-November Box

Sadly, this is my last Birchbox from my birthday present! Thank you SO MUCH Adriane, this has definitely been an amazing 3 months trying out new and different products, and seeing what truly works best for me! I am SO sad that this journey will be ending (due to us having this new house and all the major expenses that goes with it!).

This is probably, hands down, the best box out of the three.  Of course, they would go out with a bang, but honestly, I love every product.

This months box contained a mask, a primer, a red matte lipstick, curling cream, and dry shampoo.  Here is my take on the products

  • I am in LOVE with this red matte lipstick, like beyond in love! It stays on for a few hours, even while eating/drinking without having to re-apply.  It is bold, and beautiful!
  • I tried the dry shampoo on Brielle, but I swear people with naturally curly hair, can’t use dry shampoo by itself!  It has never worked in my hair, and it didn’t really work in hers..  It just kind of poofed out all of her curls, kind of like afro style.   I still had to use some of the next product and definitely some water to keep the curls tight.
  • The curling cream was good, but for Brielle’s volumized hair, I think I should have probably used more than a dime size amount.
  • The eye primer I have used, but still have yet to figure this product out! It will take some time to see how I should really use it.
  • The face mask I still haven’t used as well, but I am definitely excited for!

Thank you again Adriane so much for gifting me with three months of greatness, and I can’t wait to use all these goodies up! Love you girl!

Birch Boxin’ It

Birch Boxin’ It

One of the best gifts I received for my birthday, was a 3 month supply of birch box from my best friend.  It’s a beauty box that is used to give you samples of items that you might use/like.  It asks you questions about your skin color/tone/texture and is interested in what areas that you might want to work on/improve, and they make a box to fit those specific needs, just for you.

This month, the kit brought me six items! They give you them in sample size versions, and if you like the product, you can go on their website, to buy the full size product.

This month I received Shampoo, conditioner, clay face mask, lip stain, mascara, and perfume.

All of this months sample products! :)

This clay mask feels interesting when it is actually applied to your face, but it does indeed do its job. Smooth, baby soft skin.
Borghese-Fango Purificante Clay Cleanser–Full size $30 This clay mask feels interesting when it is actually applied to your face, but it does indeed do its job. Smooth, baby soft skin.
This mascara I have tried twice already, and it definitely makes my eyes more vibrant, as it lengthens and stays clump-free.

Davines-LOVE smoothing shampoo–Full size $25 (added bonus sample Davines-LOVE smoothing conditioner–Full size $29) This shampoo/conditioner duo definitely work hand in hand. It left my hair feeling soft, less frizzy, and shiny!
This lip stain is definitely tiny, and looks great on my lips. I love tan products on my lips, and this stain did stay true to itself, and last for quite a few hours.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics-Lip-Locked-Lucky Full size $24 This all-in-one primer, stain, and lip gloss looks great on my lips. I love tan products on my lips, and this stain did stay true to itself, and last for quite a few hours, despite me drinking plenty of liquids throughout the day! 🙂
The last but not the least, is this perfume. I LOVE the that it only takes a good couple of squirts and the smell actually lasts for a pretty long time. :)
Oscar De La Renta- Flor Eau de Parfum Full size $20-$78 The last but not the least, is this perfume. I LOVE the that it only takes a good couple of squirts and the smell of the mango mixed fragrance lasts for a long while! 🙂
