Birchbox : April

After my March Birchbox, I felt so spoiled. I loved all of my samples and was very pleased with the results.
So, my hopes were set extremely high for my April box.

  1.  Beauty Protector : Protect & Detangle  {Great for all hair types, this nourishing elixir perform seven hair-healing functions. Among them : locking in color, adding shine, and instantly detangling. Full-size $21.95} This product is GREAT! My mom received this in a previous box, so I got to try it beforehand, and I completely fell in love with it. After a few squirts, my hair is ready to be brushed out and styled! I would recommend this product–
  2.  Supergoop! : Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream {This next-generation CC cream provides corrective coverage and triple protects against UVA, UVB, and infrared-A rays. Full-size $32.} First off, I was slightly disappointed with the sample size. I tried this product for the first time this morning and it seems like it is a good product, I just don’t know if I will be able to get a good enough ‘review’ based off of the sample size. I hope that it does work, as I do need corrective coverage, but after only 2 uses, will you really be able to tell? Maybe I can get a few more uses to determine!
  3.  LAFACE Laboratories : BEAUX YEUX Beautiful Eyes Concentrate Intensive {A hefty dose of hyaluronic acid amps up moisture levels, while an advanced peptide complex halts wrinkle formation. Full-size $160.} This must be a joke. No, I have not tried the product, but based off of the sample size I have already made my decision. If a product cost $160, I would personally think that you would give a ‘bigger sample’ so prospective buyers could fall in love with the product. Rather than only getting a 1 time use. Also, I wouldn’t spend $160 on this so…for me…this is a no-go.
  4.  Caudalie : Devine Oil {Made with a blend of grape, argan, hibiscus, and sesame oils, this multitasking wonder gives skin, hair, and nails a gorgeous glow. Full-size $9-$49.} I just opened my sample of this an it smells great! So, I am anxious to try this product. I have never been a fan of oils due to the ‘reside-sticky feeling’ it leaves on your skin, yet this doesn’t seem to be that way!
  5. Lifestyle Extra : Hail Merry : Chocolate Macaroons {It tastes too good to be true : These decadent treats are raw, vegan, gluten-free, and made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients. Full-size $5.} I have not tried these, but I am sure they are delicious!

Another addition to the box is a year of Women’s Health subscription for free. This excites me, however I could see that others wouldn’t get excited about this. I’m wondering how this box relates to Fitness, but I suppose that’s my own personal opinion. Overall, this was a good box. Not my favorite, but good.

What did you receive in your box?

{If you got the nail polish, I want to hear your thoughts! I am jealous I didn’t receive it, as it looks very interesting!}

Birchbox : March

 Yes, I couldn’t resist to go ahead and give you a {Sneak Peak} of my Birchbox because I’m absolutely obsessed.

Did I say obsessed?

I mean my most favorite box I have received in the 4 months I’ve gotten the ‘infamous PINK box’ in the mail.

Ok, now I must tell you why it is so FABULOUS.

First off, I love nails. All things nails. Nail Polish. Nail Files. Nail Anything.

(Which, if you know me…You will know this.)

Incoco : Nail Polish Applique

     Full-size : $9 – $11

I have just tried these out and i’m ever so obsessed. I have never used nail strips, so i’ve always wanted to know how easy they really are. Or perhaps…how difficult! But, after trying them…they are super easy! And they stay on extremely well. I’ve had many compliments, so of course…they are cute!

      Full-size : $5

Birchbox : December & January

I’ve had a few request to see what I got in my previous month’s BIRCHBOX (for those who are thinking about possibly ordering it for themselves), so I have decided to do a quick post on them with just a few pictures.

My December box was the first one I had ever gotten, so to say I got excited when I saw it in my mailbox is a complete understatement. I was beyond ecstatic to see what I got!

BIRCHBOX : A New Found Love

Something that will literally change your life forever.

Yes, I said it. Forever.

Untitled 2 copy

Just in case you don’t know what a Birchbox is, I must let you in on the secret.

First off, who doesn’t love getting mail? Not the bills, just the fun stuff of course. Well, not only does this precious package come in the mail, but it comes wrapped in a PINK BOX. What better color, right? How could you not possibly be ECSTATIC when you go check your mail and you see a pink box awaiting your arrival.

Birchbox is a monthly subscription to deluxe-sized beauty samples. Each month you receive 4.5 random samples.

The cost is $10.00 a month. You read that right. ONLY $10.00 for GREAT samples! What a perfect way for a beauty product-adic like me, to save money. Now, I can actually try the product before I have to spend so much money and buy the whole thing to see if I even like it.

One of the best parts about the box is that they are designed just for YOU. When you sign up, you fill out a survey and according to your answers, Birchbox will send you samples based off of what best fits for you.

Another awesome thing about Birchbox is, you can accumulate reward points. For every 100 points you earn, you’ll receive a $10 credit to spend in the Birchbox store. A little breakdown for you :

  • Birchbox membership — 110 points for a yearly subscription, 10 for a monthly subscription
  • Earn 1 point for every $1 spent in the Birchbox shop
  • Earn 50 points for every friend you refer to Birchbox
  • Earn 10 points for each completed product feedback survey

I decided this would be a great Christmas gift for a few friends this year and it’s been so fun seeing what they got in their box compared to what I got in mine for the past two months.

The boxes usually arrive around the 10th of each month. Currently, I’m waiting the arrival of my February box, then of course I will show you all my goodies that I got!  (I got an email today that they are going to arrive late due to weather, so you’ll have to wait a bit to see what I got.)
