A few weeks ago my sister gifted me the sweetest present and it just arrived in the mail! Say HELLO to my very first Birchbox!
I’ve never done a beauty subscription before so I was pretty stoked to try out the goodies that arrived in my Birchbox. For those of you that have never heard of Birchbox, it’s a company that sends you samples in the mail each month that are related to all things beauty. It’s a great way to get exposure to some of the best brands in the beauty industry and find what works best for you before committing to full sized products!
Here’s what I got for the month of May in my Birchbox:
Malin + Goetz / Grapefruit cleanser – This face cleanser worked great and smelled wonderful too! It left my face feeling soft and refreshed. I need to continue using the sample to see how my face reacts (sensitive skin over here) because I could see myself buying this cleanser in the future.
Acure Organics / Lip Lush – This gloss was actually sheer unlike the dark purple packaging. I liked how soft and shiny it made my lips look and feel, but I’m not really a lip gloss kinda gal so not something I’ll end up purchasing. If that’s your jam, then I say you’ll love it!
Beauty Protector / Protect & Detangle – OK. This was magical. I sprayed this in my hair after I washed it (I went a little sprits happy and thought my hair would turn out greasy the next day but NO!) and it immediately detangled. Then once my hair dried it was so silky and soft. Not to mention that it’s a heat protectant!! I’m planning to buy this in FULL size because I loved it that much!
Number 4 / Clarifying Shampoo – This shampoo was great when I used it! It was a thick consistency, but easily rinsed out. My hair felt extra smooth and I imagine it has already rejuvenated my hair a tiny bit. I also loved that you can use this as a body wash too. Maybe when I get tired of my current shampoo I’ll transfer over?!
Vasanti / Face Rejuvenator – I was a bit surprised how rough this scrub was, but then again that’s what it’s supposed to be like so I can’t complain. My face felt great afterwards so I’m sure it did the job. I’m a bit indifferent on how I feel about this product because I don’t use face scrubs very often. I know I need to get on that. So hey, maybe this will be the one?
