For Christmas my mom bought me a 6 month subscription to Birchbox! Which means I’ll be sharing different products with you every month. I love this idea because it’s like a gift at your door step at the beginning of each month. Also it gives me a chance to try out products I have never heard of before. As a beauty/fashion blogger I really appreciate a gift like this because I get to test out different brands and introduce you to them as well. I know it’s been a minute since I posted a beauty related blog post. Reason being is that it’s not everyday I go out and buy something new. So when I have a beauty product worth talking about I share it! But now that I’ll be receiving these cute little boxes each month so except more beauty posts.
Amika : Perk Up Dry Shampoo- This weightless spray has the brand’s signature Obliphica scent. It refreshes second (or third) day hair with rice starch that absorbs oil, boots volume, and enhances shine.
Beauty Protector– This paraben and sulfate free detangler protects against UV rays and heat styling, while also preventing color from fading. Spritz on towel dried hair.
Benefit Cosmetics: The POREfessional Pearl Primer- Awaken your complexion with this pearly pink, oil free balm that minimizes the appearance of pores and boots skin brightness. Apply pre-makeup or wear alone for a soft radiance.
Sand & Sky: Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask- Detoxify and brighten your complexion with this mask made from Australian kaolin clay, organic aloe vera, and Kakadu plum. Apply to clean skin, let sit for 10 minutes, then rinse.
Stila Cosmetics: HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara- This inky black mascara lets your lashes go big in every way. One coat leaves major volume, curl, and length.
Birchbox: Eyelash Curler- For an eye-opening effect, gently clamp lashes from the base of your lash line, then apply mascara. for extra long lasting curl, heat your curler for 10 seconds using a blow dryer.
I love that the box comes with a list of all the products inside and what they do. It definitely helps for blogging purposes as well.
I love the POREfessional pearl primer, I own the regular one and I think they are great products to have in your collection. The Stila Huge mascara is insane, just one swipe and your lashes are coated (would recommend to anyone who loves full lashes). The Amika dry shampoo smells SO good, if you are a fan of dry shampoos I would give this one a try. The Beauty Protector heat spray I love, it smells amazing and it really does make my hair shiny. The last two products (the clay mask and eye lash curler) I have not tried. I’m not a huge mask person and I’ve never curled my lashes because they are long as is. Other than that I loved Decembers box and it’s such a cute little surprise each month.
I hope you enjoyed this post and until next time xoxo
