January Birchbox

My monthly Beauty Boxes are starting to roll in for the month of January

1st up – BIRCHBOX!

BB

This month’s box includes a fold-out poster with 25 ideas for ways to maximize your personal happiness such as not swearing off all carbs and eating breakfast. I actually LOVED this detail of the box and I plan to share some of the “25 ways to make 2013 awesome” with you all throughout the month.

My deluxe beauty samples this month were:

BB2

1. (2) Kérastase’s Masque Chroma Riche Treat conditioner packets

2. Frownies Eye Gels Under Eye & Eyelid Treatment

BB3

I am so excited to try the Frownies Eye Gels. In each pack you get 1 reusable set that can be used up to 4 times. You wear the pair of patches for  half hour and refrigerate after each use. Initially you should wear these for 3 nights in a row, then continue with treatment once a week. I will review these when I get a chance to test them out. If I see a difference I plan to continue using them.

BB4

3. DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum

4. Harvey Prince Skinny Chic

At the age of 27 I do worry about the prevention of wrinkles so DDF Wrinkle Resist will be worth the try, especially since it includes a pore minimizer.

I instantly laughed when I read about the Harvey Prince Skinny Chic. This fragrance basically says that a spritz curbs cravings as well as gives an instant energy life. I am doubtful that it actually does what it states but I will say that it smells amazing!

5. theBalm Cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One

The color swatched on my skin was a very pretty shade and I can see it being a beautiful color for both blush and shadow.

Overall I was not thrilled about this box. It did have some highlights such as the Frownies but I am so over receiving Perfume Samples in my monthly boxes. I will say that this particular months fragrance sample was my favorite though just because it was different. For $10 a month though, I have no complaints and I am excited to see what goodies next month’s will bring!

  1. I have used DDF a while back and the results did seem instantaneous, though not sure if they had a long term benefit (well, for the product I tried anyway). Looking forward to your review of Frownies – they sound really interesting!! x

    • I’m subscribed to a few different ones and Birchbox has been my least favorite :/ compared to a few boxes ago, this one is really good actually lol Tomorrow I’ll post my Ipsy one which has been my favorite $10 one so far. I also get Popsugar but that one is more pricey at $35 and if this months isn’t fabbbbulous – it’s getting cancelled.

  2. Oh I didn’t get the Frownies in mine! Let me know if you like them! And I laughed at the Skinny Chic perfume too – at first I thought it was something you sprayed in your mouth (I’m glad I sprayed it on my wrist first!).
