Happy weekend loves! Today on the blog I’m sharing what came in this months Birchbox. That just so happen to arrive on Valentines Day which I thought was super cute and a great idea on Birchbox’s end. So here’s the first look and a little love letter from Birchbox..
Another great box of samples arrived that I’m excited to try because it’s everything that interests me. Before I sent away for my first box, I personalized my online profile on Birchbox.com, which I highly recommend doing if you are a Birchbox subscriber. This way you’ll get product samples of everything you love and use on a daily basis. So here’s what came in February’s Birchbox!!
Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel
When I first opened the box, this was the first product to catch my eye. Obviously. Because I LOVE and I’m sure you guys already know the love I have for anything pertaining to skin. Face Masks, Peels, Exfoliators, toners, etc..So I was super pumped to see this. This product works wonders and is so easy and convenient to use. It’s not a mask but more reminds me of an exfoliator. I was blown away when I tried it for the first time. I love skin products that you can actually FEEL WORKING and that is the exact experience I had with this. I applied it to my face, neck and chest as directed (I recommend doing it in the shower) and rubbed it in for a solid 3 minutes but more like a minute in and a half if I’m being totally honest. From there I felt in cleansing and wiping away any dead skin that you think you don’t have but you really do, trust me. My skin from my face, neck, and chest felt hydrated, smooth and extra, extra clean and radiant. So clean and radiant that you don’t ever want to put makeup on your face again. Defiantly will be buying a full bottle of this.
amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
This was another product I was excited to see of course because I am OBSESSED with dry shampoo. I would be lost without dry shampoo. I only wash my hair twice a week so clearly dry shampoo is a super important product to me. I’m a religious user of Detox Dry Shampoo and if I had to compare the two, I wouldn’t put one in front of the other. They are just two DIFFERENT types of dry shampoos. Example, when I used amika for the first time, I noticed it goes on a little wet at first which is something I’m not used to with Detox and I wasn’t a fan of that…but it did dry fairly quickly but sometimes you just don’t have the time for that. I do, to my surprise like the smell of amika better than Detox. I also do like the application of amika better than Detox. Detox tends to go on aggressively. Meaning, when you spray it out of the can it shoots out directly onto your hair and can almost make your hair annoyingly stiff where as with amika I did not have that problem. Another thing I liked about amika was there was zero left over residue either on my hair or fingers. But as far as what the purpose behind the product is, amika gets the job done and the job done right. They both do. So I guess what I’m saying is, it’s based on your own personal opinion. Both are great! Both have their pros and cons.
