This month's Birchbox is all about natural wonders, fresh products that take inspiration from the world around us. I was excited about this box because I've been trying to add more natural products to my life but my samples kind of fell short. Keeping reading for my full review!
Juice Beauty Oil-free Moisturizer:
Most moisturizers list water as their main ingredient, not Juice Beauty's! Their formula is made with a powerful base of organic juices and other botanicals that nourish skin. Organic apple, grape and pomegranate nourish with antioxidants and phytonutrients while hyaluronic acid draws moisture to the skin. Aloe leaf juice and cucumber extract soothe skin and heal redness and irritation. Perfect for oily or blemish-prone skin.
I LOVE this moisturizer! Okay, I received my Birchbox last Saturday so I've only been using this for 5 days now but I really really like it. The texture feels different than other moisturizers I've used...this feels more silky instead of a watery cream. Of course I love the ingredients and that it's certified organic. If I didn't JUST buy a new moisturizer I would have highly considered spending my Birchbox points on this. It's $28 for 2oz, that's expensive but I think would be willing to pay that for this product.
This nail polish is from Zoya's 2012 spring collection called True. Lotus is a very unique color, a dusty amethyst purple with shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold. The formula was perfect and opaque in two coats. I love getting Zoya polishes in my Birchbox!
Wonderstruck Taylor Swift:
Booo another perfume sample. This smells nice but I don't care for Taylor Swift.
amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask:
I've reviewed this mask before, here. I liked it before when I used it in combination with the Amika Obliphica Oil Treatment but now that I tried it alone I don't like it as much. I didn't notice a difference in my hair at all. I think when I tried this the first time the oil made my hair less frizzy. I'm sort of picky about my deep conditioners/hair masks. Unless I see a noticeable difference in my hair's texture and frizziness I don't like the product. I was able to get two uses out of this and I wasn't impressed. The full size is very expensive, $50.
Dropps Laundry Detergent:
I wasn't too thrilled to get laundry detergent in my birchbox but whatever, I used them. They cleaned my clothes well and smelled nice too. These are $6 for 20 dropps...that seems to be a pretty fair price.
This month's Birchbox definitely fell short. I'm not completely disappointed because I discovered a new moisturizer I really like, and a Zoya polish is always nice. Let me know what you think about this month's Birchbox, thanks for reading!
