Oh August. This makes the 4th month since I signed up for Birchbox. My favorite part about Birchbox would have to be getting beauty product samples, and well I just haven’t been getting as many as I’d like. I love getting things in the mail, so I of course want to keep getting prizes. I have so many perfume samples I could fill an entire bottle. It may smell terrible, but I could do it.
:: Schick Hydro Silk Razor
It’s a real shame I just bought a razor! I had been using the same razor for.. well… lets just say a real long time. Longer than any human should naturally use a razor for, that’s for sure. Kh got sick of seeing it in the shower and finally made me get a new one. I do love the fact this month they included a razor. They can be a little pricey at times, and it’s nice to be able to try out a new brand of razors without spending a fortune just to find you don’t like the brand.
:: per-fekt Beauty Last Perfection Gel
I haven’t tried this yet, but after this description -“This innovative lash enhancer may look like an ordinary mascara, but the similarities end there. The high-tech gel formula combines a flattering black pigment with a nourishing cocktail of ingredients to prime, condition, darken, and lengthen your lashes.” Sign me up! I’m only sad the bottle is a tiny sample size. I have a feeling I’m going to like this.
:: Caldrea Hand Soap
I got the lavender scented one. Ekk.. If there’s one scent that makes me cringe a little on the inside, it’s lavender. I’m coming off as super bratty in this run down of my goodies. I’m really not, I’m just a little picky when it comes to the products I put on my skin. But this soap is eco-friendly, comes in 6 scents, and it’s priced at $10.50. I’m liking the sounds of that.
:: Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur
Hey, look it’s a perfume sample. This time it’s Juicy, so I’m a little ok with it. I still won’t wear it. I’ve got my au naturale fragrance that I stick to.
:: DDF Brightening Cleanser
What this is: A cocktail of potent active ingredients works to fade the look of brown spots, scars, and redness while also leaving skin fresh and smooth. I love it when product descriptions use the word “cocktail” to describe it’s ingredients. With most products it recommends extended use for best results, which always makes me hesitant. Extended use for me usually translates to skin irritation and breakouts. I have muy sensitive skin. But for $38, it’s a pretty reasonably priced cleanser.
