In-addition to what you see here I also received a 12 week subscription to US Magazine

I was so excited to get this month’s box.  I opened it to find:

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm

Color Club On The Rocks Nail Polish

Juicy Couture Viva LA Juicy Noir 

Beauty Protector & Shampoo

Beauty Protect & Condition

Ghirardelli Toffee Crunch Bar

I do have to tell you that my favorite item is the Dr. Jart+ BB. I am not a big makeup girl. This product is right up my alley. Gives me just a touch of color so it looks like I have foundation on without having any on. I was not a fan of the perfume but found a friend who is thankful for the sample.I have tried both the shampoo and the conditioner and am happy with the results. Though not happy enough to purchase the full size. The nail polish is silver in color. I do not have a great need for this color polish so I passed it on to someone who will be using it more than I ever would. I am glad that I signed up for this subscription box.


1st Birchbox Thoughts

I received my Birchbox on 10.19.2013. I have been using some of the products.
I have been using the Avène Cleanance Soap-Free Gel Cleanser. I can not begin to explain how much I LOVE this cleanser. Having combination skin and risk of blemish’s has always been a struggle. I have been using this since 10.20.2013 It does not dry my skin out, no tight feeling and it smells so In fact today I placed an order for the full size for only $16. It is a product of France. I have used Curly Hair Solutions™ Curl Keeper I will be giving the remainder of the sample to a friend. I am not a fan at all….it makes my hair crunchy 😦 my search for a curl enhancing styling product that does not make it crunchy continues. I have been using ChapStick® Hydration Lock since 10.19.2013 It makes my lips so smooth…definitely will purchase this item.
DDF® Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum has been used for the past 3 days. It maybe my imagination but I believe the lines on my forehead are less noticeable. theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen is what I was sent.I like that it gives just a hint of color as I am very minimal with makeup at work. I work at a pediatricians office and taking the time to do full makeup is not something I care to do in the morning so this is something that I like. Although I like it I am not sure I am willing to pay $17. Overall I was very happy with this month’s box.
