I think this month I really got my money’s worth. They have a lot of samples, and I can’t wait to try them all. I also didn’t expect it to come so soon. I tracked it on UPS, and they said not until the 14th, but when I opened the mailbox there it was all pretty, and waiting to be opened by me! I will probably say this over and over in the post’s to come, but receiving a package in the mail is like Christmas to me. Always has been, and I really don’t foresee that ever changing. That is why I signed up for Birchbox, it’s inexpensive, and every month I can get a little bit of Christmas. So let’s get this started. First thing I see when I open it up is a little green paper explaining that this is a gossip girl themed box, and that you should watch the season finally on May 14th at 8 pm on the CW. I have seen this show many a times, but as a mother I don’t really watch it anymore, because when I am not watching kid’s shows or husband sports, this is not what I would choose. I loved it as a single woman, and I am sure that if I was still single, and not a mother, I would spend the time it takes to watch it.
Anywho on the back of the paper is the explanation of all the products you are getting. I got Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer, Color Club Nail Polish in Clambake Coral, Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere liquid, Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow, Extras, Kerastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal, Kerastase Cristalliste Lait Cristal, Notecard.
Algenist, Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer Looking your age is so overrated. This sophisticated moisturizer uses an exclusive microalgae compound to delay the cellular aging process. Full size $90. Ok so I have to say this is a pretty good sized sample it is 15ml. Which I think is about a month or so of anti-aging lotion if you really make it last. The smell is very similar to Revlon Colorstay foundation. Which for some reason I feel like it smells of coffee just a little bit. I love the smell even though a lot of ppl don’t. It goes on my hand really smooth, and the smell doesn’t stick with you for too long.
Color Club, Nail Polish in Clambake Coral Just in time for summer, this warm coral will set off your newly (self-) tanned skin. Full size $8. I love getting nail polishes! I spend a lot on nail polish throughout the year, and when I get one like this I feel like it is one less that I have to buyJ The color is really cute, and by chance totally matches the shirt I am wearing today!!! Got to love coral for a spring time look! I haven’t tried this brand yet, but I know that here within the next couple days I will find time to do my nails this color. Let me know if you want to know how it compares to other nail polishes.
Kerastase, Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide Smooth this lightweight, fragrant serum through dry strands to add gorgeous shine. Full size $42. As for the shampoo, and conditioner I am not going to tell you about those, because I don’t think they are anything special yet, because I am not going to open them today to wash my hair, since it doesn’t need it. As for the serum it is very fragrant, and feels like any other oil. I think it smells of spring time flowers. I love to use stuff like this that I can pair with a spring time perfume! I will put it in my hair today before work to smooth any fly aways.
Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow Don’t settle for anything but flawless skin-all over your body. This tinted treatment erases blemishes and scars on arms, and legs. Full size $34. I am not very happy with this oneL I don’t think it smells very good, and the fact that it has little glitter in it makes me very weary. How can something with glitter cover a blemish? Wouldn’t that attract attention to said area? IDK I am not an expert, but I don’t think I will be trying this one anytime soon.
Notecard, Text messages are no match for handwritten notes on fun, modern stationary. Set of 12, $10. I love this it is very cute! I love to send snail mail. I think that there is nothing more personal than your own handwriting. Can’t wait to send it to my sister.
I hope you all liked this and let me know if you have any questions
