I’ve finally had a chance to try out all of my Birchbox goodies. It was a 3 out of 5 success for August.
LiQWd Professional Volumizing Catalyst – Equipped with high-tech moisturizers, this weightless mist adds serious body to flat locks, Full-size, $22.
Review: I’m not an authority on hair care at all. I often wear my hair up because I work in food manufacturing and have to wear a hair net everyday. It does smell delicious and I like that it didn’t make my hair oily looking.
Dr. Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream – This four-in-one moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, and skin-perfecting tint is the beauty version of a Swiss Army Knife, Full-size, $32.
Review: I will be buying this! It evens out my skin while providing sunscreen and moisturizer, which is a must for me! I love the Dr. Brandts Pore No More but it’s $45 for 1 oz. This stuff is a steal at $32 for 1.7 ounces; and it works just as good.
Larabar Uber, Apple Turnover – Consider these wholesome bars brain fuel: they’re packed with fruits and nuts, Pack of 5, $9.
Review: This bar was a delicious snack. I wish I had a bigger one. It’s the perfect combo of dried fruit and nuts.
Juicy Couture, Viva La Juicy, La Fleur – This modern scent is a feminine blend of wild berries, mandarin, ad waterlily, Fulll-size, $70.
Review: This smell is very lovely, but a little too grandma-ish. I apparently look really young, but I don’t think smelling old would fix that situation. I will continue to wear this occasionally until the sample is gone but wouldn’t purchase a full size bottle.
DDF Brightening Cleanser – This foaming gel uses an all-star team of skin brighteners to fade discoloration and even out skin tone, Full-size, $38
Review: This cleanser stinks, literally! It has a really disgusting smell. I do like the way it makes my skin feel, it probably would work to brighten my face if used on a consistent basis. However, my skin dries easily and this made it worse.
