It’s Birchbox time!! Ok. I am going to start this post my telling you all something very important. I CANCELED MY BIRCHBOX SUBSCRIPTION. Now, nothing against Birchbox, but I decided it was time to go. I’ve had a subscription for about a year, and I am just all sampled out. Also, I want to use more natural products, and Birchbox does not offer a ton of those. I have a loved a lot of stuff I’ve tried, but I seem to never buy a full size, so it is pretty much pointless to keep trying things. I am going to try and use up a lot of my samples, then I might get a Goodebox subscription, which is a more natural service.
First off, the inside of this months was black and white striped a la Kate Spade Saturday. Very cute!
Color Club Art Duo Pen in Sea Lavender
I just used this yesterday in my Monday Manicure. This nail art tool has a striping brush and dotting pen in one! The pen part is super nifty. Just squeeze the tube a little and a dot of polish comes out the end. I think it will be awesome to have, but need a little getting used to.
CoTZ Face natural Skin Tone SPF 40
This oil free product is a mineral sunscreen with a bit of tint and a matte finish. I’ve tried various CoTZ products before, and they are all pretty good. This product feels more like a primer, like that siliconey feel. I’m thinking this would actually work really nice as a primer, or just for a tinge of perfection on a day to the beach!
Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
I feel like I get a BB cream every other month. I seriously have 4 small little samples right now to be used. Swatched on the back of my hand, I thought this seemed a little dark, but I think that is wear the ‘glow’ comes in. Once I have more of a tan this may be a better match.
Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls
I’ve used the Pillow Soft Curls from Miss Jessies, and a few other samples here and there from the brand. I’m excited to try another! I will be bringing this home with me over the weekend to try it out. I’ve used so many curling products over the years, one day I’ll find the perfect one! This sample sizes are a good size too, you can get 3 or so uses out of them.
Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Acai Grapefruit
Hey Birchbox, how did you know I just finished my shaving cream! Well, I also JUST repurchased a new one, but this little one will be awesome for summer travels. 99% of my summer trips involve a bikini, so a lot of shaving gets done. This will be much easier to bring around with me. Also, acai and grapefruit are too of my favorite scents! It smells amazing.
The last thing in the box is a $25 off coupon for Kate Spade Saturday. Pretty awesome coupon, except I’m trying to not buy stuff right now!! I do need a new wallet, so maybe I’ll use this coupon to pick something up!
Well. RIP Birchbox. May we meet again in another life.
