Hello lovlies! I’m alive and well! Trust me when I say it hasn’t been my choice by any means to go a little MIA from the blog lately but work and being an adult is taking over my life but TODAY IS THE DAY. Today is the day I finally was able to set some time aside… If you wanna call pantless, sitting on the edge of the bed, unmanicured nails, messy/rooted hair, wine poured and two baskets of dirty laundry right in front of me “setting time aside” but any whoooo here we are and I’m sharing what came in The May BirchBox today!
Ouai Wave Spray
To start off, a little advice. DEF, DEF, DEF use this product on damp hair. It says you can use it on dry or damp hair but damp is the way to go. I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this product. Yes, it is on the pricey side but worth it. It smells great and really does a good job at giving my hair that wavy, loose curl look. I’ve read mixed reviews on this product and I can see why. Although I am happy with the product, I don’t think it’s for everyone’s hair type.
ModelCo Illusion Lip Pencil
Too be honest, not much to say about this one. This product didn’t interest me at all. But I did I give it a whirl! And….. yeah still not much to say. I HATE lip liner. Lipstick does not need lip liner. When I think of lip liner, I think back to the 90’s and my mom. JUST STOP with the lipliner ladies!!! I don’t care if Kylie Jenner is doing it, you are not her!! Seriously had to get that off my chest..but does anyone else feel this way about Lip Liner?But I do have one good thing to say!! The color is pretty. It’s a beautiful, neutral, light pinkish shade. Like it. But that’s about it.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo Illuminator
I actually really do like this product. It say’s you can apply it alone for an overall glow or mixed in with your foundation. I was skeptical about mixing it in with my foundation at first but once I did I was like damn that’s good. You actually will notice you don’t need to use as much foundation as you normally would. This product makes up for it. And that glow is AMAZZZ and natural looking. No streaks, non greasy and smells great!
Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection SPF 50
As you guys know, I love facial lotions that contain SPF. I can’t stress it enough. SPF does wonders for the skin. It’s all I will use on my face. So of course when I saw this product in my BirchBox I was excited! And for good reason! Surprise, surprise! I love it! Will def be purchasing the full size bottle. It’s so lightweight, smells dreamy and leaves my skin soft and radiant.
Beauty Protector Protect & Oil
I am very picky when it comes to oil products for my hair. Too much can lead to grease and that’s never attractive. But when applied at just the right amount, I really do like this product and am very pleased with it. Again, another on the pricey side but can totally see why. And when it comes to oil and my hair, I will pay more for a better formula and that’s what this stuff is! It really does a good job at smoothing down my hairs frizz and giving it that fresh from the salon shine. This oil has so many different benefits. Heat protection, UV protection, color fading protectant and smells like a dream.
