It’s my favorite time of month again (except pay day of course)! Time to review some new samples. Ready to find out what I loved? Keep reading…
Avene Thermal Spring Water | Birchbox $14.00: At first I thought – what on earth do I need this for? But after reading about it I got really curious to try it out. Most noteworthy is that this stuff soothes redness and calms all sorts of skin problems. You can use it as a morning toner, mid-day refresher or set your makeup. I have been using it as a morning toner and to spray after I work out. I wash my face, then spray it on! Great if you want to spoil yourself!
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle | Birchbox $23.50: This stuff smells amazing and does a million different things for your hair! It minimizes frizz, protects your hair against UV rays and heat, safeguards color, and adds shine! I spray it on before I go to bed and I can still smell it on me the next day while I’m at work. I will probably buy the full size as soon as I am done with the sample!
What I didn’t care for:
Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara| Birchbox $14.00: Having tried almost every single high-end and drugstore brand mascara in my 33 years of life, I was not really expecting much from this one. Sadly, I was not disappointed. I curled my lashes and then put this stuff on. Almost immediately I saw my eyelashes fall and go stick straight. BUT the good thing is that this definitely does lengthen like it says! 1 point for that!
Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+ | Birchbox $32.00: Didn’t care for this primer and foundation in one. The color was off, which isn’t their fault. Good if you don’t wear much makeup and just want to be able to put something on your face with an SPF and some color.
Balance Me Radiance Face Mask | Birchbox $34.00: This felt more like a scrub than a mask. It’s clay based (which is good) and it’s supposed to cleanse, exfoliate, and brighten your skin. It was okay….
Weird how the only products I was able to sample on my hand were the ones I didn’t care for. ha! Anyway, the samples this month were okay. 2/5 were winners. It’s nice to try products I would not normally buy. Still enjoying getting a present every month!
