January Birchbox Review

After having Birchbox since last April, I just figured out that I should be reviewing the products that I receive on their website. Why?  Because it helps them know what to send me.  DUH!  Well, I’m happy to say that even though I just started reviewing the products – this January box was the best!  I was excited to try each and every one of them.  That’s a win!  Read on!

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk | Birchbox $20:  I love dry shampoos.  Ever since I figured out how to not wash my hair every single day (except when I workout of course), dry shampoo is my favorite thing.  I save so much time in the morning.  I cannot believe I didn’t do this earlier.  So, how is this one?  It’s not bad.  It smells and feels very powdery.  I currently use the Living Proof Dry Shampoo and I like it more.  Smells better and doesn’t leave as much white powder on your scalp.  Skip!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner | Birchbox $18:  This is a great eyeliner.  It is comparable to my favorite Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.  Did I really just say that?  Yes, I did.  If you want that nice pointed wing for your cat eye, this is it!  I’m going to get the full size as soon as I’m done with my stash.

Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads | Birchbox $18:  I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw this in my box.  I have seen these all over the internet on bloggers.  Sadly, I was disappointed.  First of all it comes in a tray.  Which I didn’t realize until I ripped it open and all the liquid started dripping out everywhere.  That’s my bad.  So the eye pads themselves feel nice on.  The weird thing is that it started to sting.  I only kept them on for maybe 10 out of the 20 suggested minutes and didn’t see a huge difference.  I would skip on this but am definitely open to trying a different brand.

Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil | Birchbox $32: This stuff is great.  I actually really enjoy using cleaning oils.  But I like to use it after my normal cleansing soap.  I wear waterproof mascara and sometimes my makeup remover doesn’t take it all off – this stuff is stubborn!  So I use cleansing oil and it’s usually pretty much almost gone.  I like the pump for this a lot.  I love!

Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel | Birchbox $18:  This is your standard clear brow gel.  It isn’t bad but it didn’t do anything fantastic.  I like to use a brow gel that has a tint in it since I have pretty sparse brows.  This would work great if you have full brows.

When you subscribe to Birchbox you get to pick one of the samples.  Well, by the time I went to pick one for my February Birchbox they were all sold out.  What does that mean Birchbox?  Let’s hope you don’t start disappointing me.  You’ve done so well these last two months!!!

    I have tried sooo many dry shampoos – Living Proof, Dry Bar, every brand at Target, but they make my scalp a little itchy! I LOOOOVE the Klorane – it’s the only one that doesn’t irritate my scalp. Maybe it’s a good one for people with sensitive skin?

      Really? Interesting…I haven’t had that with any of the dry shampoos. This must be good for sensitive scalps. Also do you get Birchboxes too?
