It’s that wonderful time of the month again, where the USPS delivery man drops off my favorite package, my Birchbox. This month was all about things you use in the morning and what you won’t leave home without. I think Birchbox is getting to know me pretty well, each morning I have to wash my face with an exfoliator, spritz some perfume and, of course, put some mascara on.
Tomorrow we leave for vacation; omg I can’t wait! I’ve been struggling to make it through this work week, but the end is almost near!
Well let’s get down to what exactly was in this month’s box!
Clinque City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel (Full size $30)
A detoxifying cleansing gel with charcoal to zap pore of dirt, oil and makeup.
I’ve only used this once, and it left my face feeling clean and smooth. I typically use exfoliators or Proactive, because I like the feeling of my face being “scrubbed” clean – and plus when I use exfoliator gels, it always feels like my face gets oily faster. I used this at night, my face was nicely hydrated/smooth for the morning. Plus, the travel size/sample is huge!!
dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion (Full size $58)
A boost of salicyclic acid unglogs pores, caviar lime brightens, and lentil seed strengthens and tightens pore walls.
Obsessed! Definitely buying this when I run out of the sample. It does literally everything the description says. I’ve used this 1-2 times this week and like I said I’m obsessed J
LOC Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil – Punch Line (Full size $12)
From the Birchbox brand: a hydrating, lasting, and glossy lip pencil in a sheet watermelon pink that flatters everyone.
I’ve only used this once so far, and on my pale-not tan skin it’s pretty bright. I also don’t typically wear lip stick so that’s probably why I think it looks funny on me. I’m bringing it on vacation though, because I think it will be a perfect summer look with a tan.
TOCCA Eau de Pardum – Bianca (Full size $34-68)
This clean, citrus scent has undertones of rose and sugar for long wearing, intriguing layers.
This smells awesome! Not overwhelming, and feels light. I normally don’t try new perfumes, just because of my skin allergies, but this didn’t irritate my skin at all.
Bonus: Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara (Full size $14)
This boundary-pushing, hypoallergenic mascara grabs and curls even the smallest of lashes for a doe-eyed look.
Another thing that will make anyone obsessed with. They aren’t kidding when it says “doe-eyed” look, my lashes looked amazing. I’m buying this as soon as my sample runs out! Plus its hypoallergenic!
