My monthly Beauty Boxes are starting to roll in for the month of January

1st up – BIRCHBOX!

BB

This month’s box includes a fold-out poster with 25 ideas for ways to maximize your personal happiness such as not swearing off all carbs and eating breakfast. I actually LOVED this detail of the box and I plan to share some of the “25 ways to make 2013 awesome” with you all throughout the month.

My deluxe beauty samples this month were:

1. (2) Kérastase’s Masque Chroma Riche Treat conditioner packets

2. Frownies Eye Gels Under Eye & Eyelid Treatment

BB3

I am so excited to try the Frownies Eye Gels. In each pack you get 1 reusable set that can be used up to 4 times. You wear the pair of patches for  half hour and refrigerate after each use. Initially you should wear these for 3 nights in a row, then continue with treatment once a week. I will review these when I get a chance to test them out. If I see a difference I plan to continue using them.

3. DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum

4. Harvey Prince Skinny Chic

At the age of 27 I do worry about the prevention of wrinkles so DDF Wrinkle Resist will be worth the try, especially since it includes a pore minimizer.

I instantly laughed when I read about the Harvey Prince Skinny Chic. This fragrance basically says that a spritz curbs cravings as well as gives an instant energy life. I am doubtful that it actually does what it states but I will say that it smells amazing!

5. theBalm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One

The color swatched on my skin was a very pretty shade and I can see it being a beautiful color for both blush and shadow.

Overall I was not thrilled about this box. It did have some highlights such as the Frownies but I am so over receiving Perfume Samples in my monthly boxes. I will say that this particular months fragrance sample was my favorite though just because it was different. For $10 a month though, I have no complaints and I am excited to see what goodies next month’s will bring!

I LOVE this month’s box. Some of the highlights for me would be:

1. RentTheRunway.com $50 credit – I love the concept of Rent The Runway and have often browsed their site in hopes to rent something fabulous for an event but never have so this credit gives me more motivation to do so.

2. Emily’s Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Fortunes… no explanation needed, I’m a female & it’s chocolate.

3. ModelCo’s Shine Ultra Lip Gloss – This was my full size product and it is valued at $16.00 which makes my $10 Birchbox subscription total worth it! The color is called Striptease and it is sheer. The application is so smooth and as a lip gloss freak that is something I really appreciate and look for in an everyday lip product. There’s a built-in mirror for very easy on-the-go application.

I also received deluxe sample sizes of Amika’s Nourishing Mask, Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream and Juicy Couture perfume.

I suggest everyone who loves monthly surprises and Beauty products to try it out for at least one month & I’m sure you will fall in love! If not – you can cancel at anytime.
