Happy Friday everyone!
I got my Birchbox for the month of April on Wednesday and I’m so excited about it. I actually had my choice between two Mad Men edition boxes and I chose the “New York” Box. Let’s get into this thing!
First up is the Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel. This is basically eyebrow mascara. Haha, sounds weird, right? Well it’s great. It can be used on its own to tame down some squirrelly hairs, or used over a liner for more definition and drama.
Next up we have ANOTHER hair oil. This one is the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil hair oil. I talked about the sample I got in LAST month’s box, so I don’t know about this itty bitty tiny sample. Smells lovely, but I haven’t used it yet. I’ll let ya know what I think.
And the award for most RANDOM beauty product goes to…. wait for it… blueberry scented shave cream. Lol, not kidding. The Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream smells wonderful, but it’s just odd. I mean, blueberries? Who sat down and said “hey, I want some shaving cream that smells like a muffin! LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! I will let you know it it’s better than good ‘ol normal shave cream.
I’ve told you guys that I have the most sensitive eyes EVVVVVVVVVVVER so I’m always down to try any new creams that might help ease some irritation and redness around the eye. This is the Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion. (These products have such long names!) I will try it this weekend and we’ll see if I have one of my “oh crap oh crap take it off, it BURNS!!!!” moments. True story. That happens more than I’d like.
**Update** I used it, and it’s meh. Nothing to write home about. It’s exactly like shaving with conditioner. Well, conditioner that smells like blueberries. Don’t waste your money. Lastly, the ENTIRE reason I picked this box: this blush. So excited. This is the Cargo Swimmables Water resistant Blush in Los Cabos. Get excited. The perfect shade for Spring. Water resistant (i.e. sweat proof) and glorious, I’m already in love. Guys, this is a GAME CHANGER. Love.
So that’s my adorable box for the month of April. Not bad for $10, right? Do you guys do Birchbox? Do you like another subscription better? Thoughts?
