If you love getting to try new products out (especially cosmetic products) then I suggest jumping on the Birchbox bandwagon! I’ve been getting the boxes for a few months now ($10 a month) and have found a few products I really enjoy (and have become purse staples).
I thought I would just do a quick post on what I got for this month’s box and by all means if you’re interested go and sign up! I would love it if you did it via my affiliate link: Birchbox Affilate because I can then earn points. I’m all about reward systems!
The products are (in no particular order):
- Harvey Prince Ageless – Pink Grapefruit
- My™ Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer
- Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique – Protect
- alessandro Cream Rich Handcreme
- Lashem Double Trouble Mascara
I was pleased to finally get some decent sized deluxe samples in my Birchbox January 2013 box, however I really wish they would look at profiles because I don’t know where else to check off “dry skin” before I stop getting mattifying products.
The Alessandro handcreme is very thick and you don’t need a lot of it to moisturize your hands. The scent reminds me of cherry cough syrup. Weird I know, but it has that artificial cherry scent to it (which I don’t personally like).
It’s always nice getting a teeny tube of mascara to keep in your purse and this tube is indeed teeny! The Birchbox website says of this product, “The wand features one smudge-free Volumizing Black Mascara and one Lengthening Fiber Black Mascara.” however the sample obviously doesn’t have dual products so I’m unsure of which “end” I received.
I’m excited to try the Kérastase shampoo and conditioner because it’s meant for dry to very dry hair, which is what I have. I normally use Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner so it’ll be interesting to see the comparison!
The fragrance sample smells AMAZING. Normally I can’t stand fragrance samples but this? Citrus with a touch of floral… very Springtime!
For those of you who are also Birchbox members, what did you get in your box this month?
