I was so busy last month that I almost forgot to do my Birchbox review! This was a good one to review because it was had a lot of products I have been dying to try. Want to learn what I loved? Read on!
Oribe Glaze for Beautiful Color | Birchbox $58: I used to think that high-end haircare was a waste of money. That was before I met my wonderful hair stylist, Luisa. She taught me how to take care of my hair and now I know what it means to take care of your hair. I LOVE this brand. I use their texturizing spray on a regular basis and it smells wonderful. This is a fancy conditioner that makes your hair silky soft after you’re done using it. It reminds me of those conditioners you get after dying your hair in a box. It has the same scent as the texturizing spray. Great if you have color-treated hair!
Milk Makeup Lip+Cheek | Birchbox $24: I have been interested in this new brand, so I was very excited to see it in my box this past month! I actually thought that I wasn’t going to like this, but I LOVE it! It’s great on your cheeks and it looks good on your lips. On my lips, it’s a light coral pink . On my cheeks, it gives a really pretty coral glow. I have to say that this definitely surprised me. I am going to up to SF this week for work and this is definitely coming in my travel bag!
TOCCA Travel Fragrance Spray – Florence | Birchbox $34: I love TOCCA soaps. They smell AMAZING! So how do their fragrances fair in comparison to the lovely smells of their soaps? Ah-mazing! It is very difficult for me to find fragrances that don’t smell musty on me. This is a winner! Maybe my new Fall scent?
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser | Birchbox $25: I have been wanting to try this for the longest time! It’s world-renowned and won over 100 beauty awards. I have been using this every night for the past week. I don’t know if I am using it wrong or what, but I don’t get it. The cleanser smells like eucalyptus which reminds me of my Malin+Goetz deodorant and the cloth is like the face cloth I use to wash my face. Am I missing something that everyone else is getting out there? I know this is great for sensitive skin which is a plus in my book, but my skin didn’t feel exceptionally better. Let me know if you have other experiences with this, I want to love this stuff!
COOLA Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer | Birchbox $32: I have received a few COOLA items in my past boxes and and I’m not mad about that. When I traveled to Utah and Las Vegas for work last month, I threw this in my travel bag and used it everyday. It’s lightweight and smells lovely. Win win!
Out of everything I received, I really liked the TOCCA Fragrance, MILK Lip+Cheek Stick and the Oribe Glaze. Everything else was just okay but I was happy to try them all out. Glad I didn’t spend the money on the full size without knowing if I would like the product. That’s why I love Birchbox, you can try things out that you may not normally purchase.
