Happy happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Halloween week. We are actually finally celebrating Halloween tonight at a party, but I’ve been enjoying the miniature candies and countless horror movies that are on TV. Here are some highlights from … Continue reading
July’s Birchbox is a Senses theme so it’s full of things for hearing, tasting, feeling and smelling.
-What it is: These are for oily skin. They absorb oil and are full of beneficial green tea extracts to leave your skin matte.
-My thoughts: My skin is bone dry so I wouldn’t put these on my skin ever, nor would they do anything if I did. I’ll give them to a friend with oily skin and I’m sure they will work wonderfully. Boscia is a fantastic skincare brand. I’m a little disappointed these were in my box considering we fill out a personalized form so they know our skin type.
Full-size cost: $10
-What it is: The product name pretty much says it all!
-My thoughts: Eyeko is a great brand. I received a full-sized liner, which was exciting! It gives a really precise, even line and is easier to use than most liquid liners I’ve used. Love it!
Full-size cost: $15
-What it is: A light-weight tinted moisturizer that gives a dewy finish.
-My Thoughts: This is very similar to my beloved Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Similar, luxurious texture and luminizing finish. I applied it with my BeautyBlender this morning and really liked it.
-Full-size cost: $38
-What it is: A feminine floral fragrance with hyacinth, orchid, sandalwood and cedar.
-My thoughts: This is a really girly, soft perfume that I like. Not sure I would pay for a full bottle but it’s a nice scent.
Full-size cost: $78
What it is: A snack bar packed with dried nuts, fruit and a touch of honey.
My Thoughts: I love Larabar and this was delicious. I love that her ingredients are so simple and natural. All her bars leave me feeling full and energetic.
Full-size cost: $27.95 for a 16-pack
What it is: Earbuds for your iPhone, iPod, etc.
My Thoughts: I absolutely love the neon green and hot pink colors. These are so cute! The iPhone earbuds typically make my ears sore after wearing for a while and these don’t do that! They do slip out of my ears easier than the iPhone ones, though.
