My monthly Beauty Boxes are starting to roll in for the month of January
1st up – BIRCHBOX!
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
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
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!
