It has been too long since I have posted anything!! Waayy too long!! I will have to do a write up soon of what all I have been up to, but for now, we can just stick with the basics! I have yet to do a Birchbox review, and I know I promised one! Technically, I promised September and August reviews, but I actually clicked the wrong skin tone color, and so I really don't like anything they sent in those boxes (except the eye liner)! This is the first box that I was actually super excited to receive, and I think Birchbox hit it on the nose! Here is what I got!
Camille Beckman: Tuscan Honey Glycerin Hand Therapy
Y'all, my hands look rough in this picture!! Sorry!! Anyway, this stuff smells pretty good, but I have been using it and honestly, I don't see a big difference. The full size cost is $13.95, but I think the Aromatherapy that I pick up at Bath & Body Works does about the same thing.
Conclusion: I think I am going to keep using this to see if it gets better, but as of right now, I am not going to purchase the full size product.
Coastal Scents: Revealed Eye-shadow Palette Set
Ignore Phoenix's photo-bomb! I could NOT get her to get out of the picture! lol Anyway, this stuff is pretty! It is gold and metallic and I thought I wouldn't like it, but I do! The downside: The full size is $34. Not feeling that, which is a total shame!
Conclusion: I like this enough that I have not ruled it out. I think I will check out Ulta and see if I can snag a better deal!!
Dr. Lipp: Original Nipple Balm for Lips
When I first saw the name of this, I laughed out loud, but seriously. It has done wonders for my lips! It isn't flavored and I kind of feel weird rubbing on my lips, but I am seriously trying to make this stuff last! The full size is $14.50, and while I think that is a little high, I really like this stuff! I might try to use some of my Birchbox points toward it!
Conclusion: I think I am going to buy this. I am going to search for a better deal, and let you know, but I think it will happen folks! Good stuff!
TOCCA: Eau de Parfum, Florence
So this is love! This is expensive love, but love non-the-less. First off, I love gardenias! If I could grow them and roll in them, I would, but alas, that is not in the cards! This stuff smells amazing, and I love it! Downside: y'all this is $68. I don't have money to be throwing at smelling nice, but surely somewhere this stuff is cheaper!!
Conclusion: I love this, but it is too expensive for me. I think I am willing to pay like $25 for perfume, so as of right now, this is a no go.
Vasanti Cosmetics: BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
Y'all, this is bad, but I haven't used this yet! I am not a big fan of facial washes because I have to do it in the shower, and most times I am too busy singing to wash my face. I really only wash it about once a week (maybe). This is also $34 and I don't think I want to buy a full size. I am going to try it, and get back to you, but I like the stuff I use already, when I wash my face at all!
Conclusion: I can't pass a judgement, because I haven't tried it!
I really liked the stuff I got in my October Birchbox, but honestly, I am not willing to pay the hefty prices for the full sizes. Still, every month it is really great to get the little treat of beauty in a box! For $10 a month, this is a pretty fun little treat! I think I will keep my subscription for a few more months and see what else I can find! If you are interested in receiving a Birchbox, you can sign up here! They have boxes for men and women, so don't be afraid to give it a try!
What special things do you treat yourself with? Like I said, let me know!
