Look at what is back! I’ve decided to start birchbox again. I cancelled Sephora Play because I just like to try different boxes. It’s been over a year since my last Birchbox and I wanted to see how they were doing. I guess this months theme is ‘Get ready to prep, set, party!’ because the holidays are here and it’s time to dazzle. I feel like I got my Birchbox incredibly late this month and I hope next month I get it sooner.
Wilma Schumann Skincare – Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads – Full Size $18
“These pads are infused with pure collagen to hydrate, de-puff, and plum the undereye area. To use, place one pad under each eye and lean on for 20 minutes.”
I love Eye masks, I’ve never had a bad one and I am hoping that this one doesn’t let me down. This is the first time I am using Wilma Schumann Skincare so I am excited to try it out. The Full size comes with 5 patches, which is not a really bad price. This of course depends on how well they work.
LAQA & Co. – B’Lighter in Peacher’s Daughter – Full Size $17
“Part highlighter, part blush, this formula catches the light for a lit-from-within glow. Lightly dab onto your cheeck bones, brow bone, bridge of the nose, and cupid’s bow.”
This is pretty interesting considering it is a highlight and a blush. I am a little worried that it is a bit too pink for me to use as a highlighter. It is such a pretty color one that I can use as a blush if the highlighter part doesn’t work too well. I am always a bit skeptical of 2 in 1 products.
Stila Cosmetics – HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara – Full Size $23
“This inky black mascara lets your lashes go big in everyway. One coat leaves major volume, curl, and lots of length”
I am currently in the process of tossing my old mascaras so this could not have come at a better time. I am hoping it lives up to it’s name because I am really excited to use it. Stila cosmetics has yet to let me down, but I also have never tried one of their mascaras.
Avene – Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum – Full size $38
“Boost hydration and your subsequent skincare steps with this soothing serum that’s safe for sensitive complexions”
Glad to hear that it’s safe for sensitive skin as my skin can be really sensitive at times. Hydrating is really important to me at this time of the year so I am really excited to see if this works. I’ve also never used this brand before so I can’t wait to try it out. It seems a little pricey, but I’ll see what it can do before I get judgy.
Klorane – Shampoo with Mango Butter – Full Size $20
“Mangos are known for their restorative properties, making them ideal for this nourishing shampoo. Their fatty acide content heps heal dry, brittle hair as it cleanses.
I don’t mind getting shampoos and conditioners in my boxes, as long as I get them as a duo and the same size. The fact that this is not the same size kind of upsets and disappoints me. I like Klorane so ever if I got two packets shampoo and conditioners I would have been happier than to get a small bottle and one packet. I’ll just have to use it on those days I use leave-in conditioner.
So this months Birchbox was not too bad, but nothing wow’d me or impressed me. I did discover two new skincare brands so that is a plus. I’m hoping next month will be better. Also, Sorry about some of the blurry pictures, I had two cats and a puppy all vying for my attention and they refused to leave me be.
