I finally decided to get a Birchbox! 🙂 I think I made a wonderful choice.
This month’s theme for Birchbox was “Lighten Up“. My card included said, “Here’s to keeping cool and laughing our way into fall”. I thought that was really cute 🙂 We’re all thinking about how we can’t wait for fall to come, so what better way to celebrate than to have some awesome new beauty products!
I really enjoyed the items I got this month. Here is what my box included:
Whish Crave Shaving Cream – Acai Grapefruit – A silky shave cream that doesn’t lather like most shaving creams. This goes on more like a lotion. I really liked how this felt while putting it on! It has a really smooth texture. I felt like it did a really good job for shaving because I was able to get closer to my skin. The smell was not my favorite. It did smell grapefruit-y but it also smelled a little like chemicals. I would buy this based on how well it worked! 🙂 <3
Full Size Price : $20
Catherine Malandrino Perfume – I liked this perfume very much. 🙂 With hints of citrus, jasmine, orange blossom and fresh gardenia, it’s a lovely and girly scent that is sure to please. I really enjoy floral and citrus scents in my perfumes so this was perfect for me. Would definitely use this day-to-day. I’d love to buy this for myself – my only difficulty with this perfume is the price tag attached. <3
Full Size Price (3.4 ounces) : $110
Half Size Price (1.7 ounces) : $80
K6 Skincare – Clean Antioxidant Facial Cleanser – This is a facial cleanser that’s vegan and paraben-free and also full of antioxidants, which is great. I really liked that it cleaned my face very well. What I didn’t like is that it didn’t make my skin feel very soft afterwards.. It had that just washed squeaky clean feeling to it. I have somewhat dry and sensitive skin so having face washes that moisturize are a must-have. This face wash reminded me of Noxzema the way it rubbed into my skin. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either.
Full Size Price : $25
LAQA & CO – Sheer Lip Lube Pencil – Bees Knees Coral – I really liked this lip balm 🙂 The color was beautiful. Coral is such a perfect makeup color addition for the summer. This was super moisturizing for my lips! Because it has shea butter in it, It glided right on. I liked the minty smell this had. Another thing I liked about this is that it says it’s sheer but with a few layers, the color is solid like a lip stick. You can twist the pencil if you start running out. Loved this <3
Full Size Price: $18
Noir Cosmetics – Long-Wear Eyeliner – I believe I got a full-sized item of this, which made me super happy! 🙂 I really like this eyeliner. For someone who wears eyeliner almost every day, I’d say it’s pretty amazing. This velvety stick glides on very nicely. I had to remember to not press too hard (as I’d had to do with my other eye liners). It’s enriched with vitamin E AND it’s waterproof! For an all-day look, this would be a great eyeliner to use. I loved how black this was as well. 🙂 My previous eye-liner was a bit too ashy colored. I liked how this liner made my eyes POP! This gets a love from me!! <3
Full Size Price: $15
