BIRCHBOX $10/MONTH
Love the colorful box this month!

Davine’s SU hair and body wash. The bottle says it’s a good wash to use for sensitive skin. I LOVED the last Davine’s  shampoo and conditioner sample that birchbox sent, but the shampoo is regularly $26 for a normal size bottle. I could never justify spending that much. I own the Davine’s leave in conditioner spray, it’s really nice.

Benefit Gimme Brow. It’s a tinted brow volumizing gel. I didn’t notice volume, but does work as a gel. Mine is marked with a 3, which I assume is the color for dark brown,  though it doesn’t deposit heavy color.
– Coola spf 30 sunscreen. I’m a fan of getting sunscreen samples. It’s a practical product that will get used up. This sample will probably last one day hiking or a day trip to the beach,  perfect size to toss into a travel bag.
Oribe dry texturizing spray. I saw a birchbox tutorial using this, I’m looking forward to trying it out.
Ardency Inn modster black eyeliner. I’ve received a different eyeliner that I wasn’t  a fan of from Glossybox. It had a brush applicator, so you would be painting your eyelid black. Yeah, I never used it. I’m more willing to try this pencil style, though.

I noticed that there is a padding layer at the bottom of the box now,  that is a great idea. That will protect the products more than shipping in a piece of tissue paper. The winners this month for sure are the Benefit brow gel and the Davine’s body wash. Those will definitely be used up asap!

Birchbox Limited Edition Strong Start Box

$45 Strong Start Limited Edition Box

I finally used my birchbox points toward a purchase! I had 400 points built up from my subscription and reviews of products,  so I only paid $5 plus tax for this box! Ahh! So cool.

I love the BKR water bottle. It’s 500ml, glass with a silicon sleeve outside. It has a small opening to drink from so it won’t splash on your face like most water bottles.

I used the Arrow lip balm immediately while I was opening the box.

I love the Whish shave cream (I’ve received a sample I’ve my birchbox a long time ago) but I could never justify spending $20/bottle!

The Acure wipes and the Bombas socks are super practical.

Headphones from JLab, I already own a few but I’m sure they’ll come in handy after losing a pair! It’s inevitable. Maybe these will be better quality.

Eyeko waterproof/sweatproof  eyeliner….I have no verdict yet, I’ll have to use it to see how it compares to others I’ve used.

I’m excited to try the Supergoop setting mist! I don’t have anything like it.

Overall, very cool box. Look out for birchbox coupon to get it cheaper than $45!

I already own 2 Klorane dry shampoos, I like it, but I don’t use it very often.
