another great month from Birchbox.
It is the BEST way to discover high-end beauty products. It’s amazing how much joy this little pink box brings me each month. Start getting yours by clicking —-> here.
Here were some of the goodies inside my box:
Juice Beauty| Green Apple Peel Sensitive
Birchbox says: Until recently, sensitive-skinned girls had to steer clear of at-home peels for fear of ending up with red, angry complexions. All that changed when Juice Beauty released this version of their powerful Green Apple Peel. Suitable for even the most delicate skin types, it delivers visible smoothing results after just one use. We love how the mild tingle lets us know it’s really working.
H says: I love a good peel. But both times I used it I broke out after! So I have to put this in the no pile. Sigh.
Kerastase| Bain Chroma Captive
Birchbox says: Stars (of the celestial variety, though the same could be said for Hollywood) lose their allure when their brilliance fades. Which is exactly the case with color-treated hair: Fading means dull, damaged, lifeless locks. This sulfate-free shampoo maintains your hair’s brilliance, preserving color depth for up to 40 days. Shine on.
H says: Did this shampoo captivate my color? You bet your bottom dollar it did. It’s hard to find a sulfate-free shampoo that will actually lather up, and this one does. I love the smell and the fact that my hair looked like it was freshly colored after using. It had real shine. I DON”T, however, like its $39 price tag. Maybe when I make it into the next tax bracket…
Cargo Water Resistant Blush
Birchbox says: Waterproof mascara is old news. But a blush that stands up to humidity and Nicholas Sparks movie marathons? We’re officially hooked. This long-lasting formula is sweat-, heat-, and tear-proof. Plus, it’s packed with subtle light-diffusing minerals that give skin an effortless glow.
H says: A blush that stands its ground after watching the Notebook? Count. Me. In. I loved this blush. Great summer-y shade and stayed put. Thank you Birchbox!
COOLA| Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face
Birchbox says: This classic sunblock has everything we want in a daily SPF. The eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent certified organic ingredients and protects from both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause painful burns. Plus, the refreshing cucumber scent gives us yet another reason to love the lightweight formula.
H says: I love how light and airy this moisturizer is! My favorite thing about it might have to be the smell. Cucumber heaven. That’s right people, heaven exists. It’s in a little bottle of organic suncare.
