Birchbox unboxing Feb 2012!


Birchbox was a little bit of a disappointment this month. After seeing everyone else's boxes, I thought that they could have done a little better. Nevertheless, I will keep subbing to them because I love new makeup/skincare finds. 
(these descriptions are all taken from the website)

1. colorescience pro Mineral Bronzer Face Color in Kissed By The Sun
When we first started experimenting with self-tanners, we ended up looking like Oompa Loompas way more often than we’d like to admit. Lesson learned: these days, we turn to this natural mineral bronzer to get a healthy glow year-round. The rich brown shade works on ladies of all complexions, and the formula has a skin-friendly dose of sun protection. 

2. Eye Rock Designer Liner
As much as we love winged liner, we’re not so crazy about how much effort it usually requires. Shaky wrists and runny liquid formulas conspire to drain our time and energy, which is why we’re glad we discovered these handy stick-on appliques. Each pack comes with four different designs, ranging from classic cat eyes to bold runway-inspired styles. 

3. Free tracks from Greenriver Ordinance....shout out to whoever said it on twitter during the Grammys about country singers being hipsters....but its true, a lot of country (okay, like, two...Band Perry and these guys) are hipstery looking. 

4. Probably the best part of the box. A heart shaped emery board. That's just beyond cute. 

5. Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint
Our entire team (minus the manfolk) is obsessed with Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint and we're not alone — Allure recently gave the product its coveted "Best in Beauty" seal.  The oil-free formula feels positively weightless on but gives you plenty of even coverage. Skin looks soft and dewy and, thanks to SPF 20, you’ll be extra protected from the sun.

6. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
Forget the abrasive alternatives: Dermalogica’s bestselling, award-winning formula uses rice bran and powerful natural enzymes to buff away your skin’s outer layers without any redness or irritation. Just add water to the unique powder to activate its superstar ingredients. Best of all, you can use it every day to keep your skin clear of the dead cells that can dull your complexion and cause breakouts. 

So far I have used the microfoliant, which I really like. It's totally not abrasive and cleans your face well. I recc using a gentle face wash before you use the microfoliant.

Tomorrow I will do my first review/unbagging of myGlam bag!

  3. I'm glad I wasn't the only one disappointed with their birchbox. It was the first one I've ever received (I just signed up last month), and I am hoping it's not this lame every month... =/
