May 2016 Birchbox and Review

IMG_20160517_124438 (1).jpg

Hello Beauties,

It’s that Awesome! time of the month.  My Birchbox has arrived, this month I was pretty excited about my products.  I did not choose the curated box this month and let Birchbox just pick my products.  So here they are:

COOLA Daydream SPF 30 Mineral Makeup Primer- Full size, $42.oo

I do like COOLA products and have tried them before, so when I get it in my box I’m very pleased since they are very pricey.  The only down thing about this product was that there was not lots of product in the little deluxe sample.  When I hold it up to the light I was able to see a tiny bit in there.  The primer works great and it’s super silky and soft.  Plus it has SPF.

Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Plumping Mousse- Full size, $20.00

This product smells like roses but not too over powering and it’s suppose to help fine hair with volume.  I have used it a few times and I really like it.  I would purchase this hair product since it is a higher end hair product.

BONUS! Shampoo and Conditioner

These are foil packets but I don’t mind because you  get to review them for 10 points each.  I was able to get two uses out of these. They smell like roses and left a light scent on my hair. Full sizes, $18.00

MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 for Body- Full size, $39.00

This sample has no scent to it and very lightweight.  It has a very high SPF but it’s very expensive. I will use this product but it’s something I will not purchase.

MODELCO Lip Lacquer-Morocco-Full size Trio, $16.00

This is a nude lip gloss and it’s very nice but I really don’t need another lip gloss so I will pass this one to my sister.

RealChemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel for Body-Full size, $34.00

Now this product I LOVED!!! I didn’t expect this would work since I already use a sugar scrub every other week and I like it.  Then I tried this and it was AMAZING I was able to use it on my arms and shoulders.  It comes in a gel form with very fine grains.  I used it in the shower and it left my skin super soft.  I’m debating if this will be my next purchase with my points.



*June 2014 Birchbox*

This Month's Box


This month I received 7 items in my Birchbox, some of them where foil packets (2) but you are still able to get points on them…….. SUPER EXITED!!!.  Here they are:

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo


This shampoo is especially formulated  to tame frizzed-out and tangle-prone hair.  I have been using this product and I do like the smell of the shampoo and it makes my hair look shiny and clean.   This is a product that I would splurge on and something I would buy once in awhile.  Overall I like the product and the sample size is great.  I have been using it for about a week and still have plenty.

Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner

Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner

$27.50/8 oz

For this sample I did receive a foil packet, I actually used half of it last night and still can get one more use out of it.   It is suppose to give you a high shine look and control your frizz.  Once again the smell of this product I really like and it is one of the many shampoo samples that I have received through Birchbox that I would actually think about purchasing.

Egyptian Magic Skin Cream 4oz

Egyptian Magic Skin Cream

$38.00/4 oz

This product I have seen in other monthly boxes but I never knew exactly what this was .   I guess it can be use for many things such as face cream, hair mask, treatment for burns and has even been know to heal psoriasis and eczema.  The ingredients are all natural Olive Oil, Beeswax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Propolis Extract.  This is gonna be interesting to use I want to try the hair mask and see if this works.  It’s a bit pricey for the amount but I did receive a nice sample to try.  Can’t wait to try this  🙂

LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil

LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil


Another great sample, this lip product to me is really creamy and almost has a pastel color to it.  The color I received was Bees Knees (Coral) very nice and definitely want to try another color.

Davines OI / All in One Milk

Davines OI / All in One Milk

$28.00/135 ml

Another foil sample from this product which I did use today and I really like.  This multipurpose leave-in treatment is specifically formulated to moisturize and amplify strands for long-lasting style.  It has so many benefits such as  it supports hair growth and protects it from harmful UV radiation.    Overall I really like Davines product and will look at what else they carry.

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum

$62.00/1 fl oz

I have tried Caudalie products before through Birchbox and always like what I receive the only thing is that they are on the pricey side.   I like receiving wrinkle serums so I will get good use of it.  Even though it’s a small sample you still get plenty of use since I only use a small amount and I focus on my eyes more.

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris – 3.4 oz

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris

$110.00/3.4 oz

I really like this perfume with this multifaceted perfume has citrus top notes that open up to aromas of lush orange blossom, sweet jasmine, and fresh gardenia. The fragrance rounds out with hints of amber and musk.  Mine came in a small spray which I like better than the vial ones.  Birchbox really hit a home run on this one, the scent is PERFECT for me.

Well once again I’m enjoying my box, let me know if you have tried any of these products,  and what did you receive in your Birchbox?.  Thanks for stopping by.
