Dear Lovely Reader,
On my quest to check out more “natural” makeup and beauty products, I decided to add-on a couple of things with my usual Birchbox order.
First, what was in my Birchbox May sampler? The theme: Low Effort High Impact
Davroe Volume Senses Shampoo and Conditioner (full size $29.00 each)
ModelCo. Illusion Lip Pencil (full size $20.00)
R+Co High Dive Moisture & Shine Creme (full size $27.00) formulated to smooth and seal the hair cuticle, softens strands, fights frizz and enhances shine.
Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion (full size $30.00) fragrance free, goes on clear and develops a natural looking (read not orange)tan over four to eight hours.
I was also allowed to pick one product sample from 4 they offered. I chose the MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream (full size $33.00).
This month I picked up “the it’s all natural kit” which contains products that are paraben, phthalte, sulfate, and petrochemical free.
W3ll People Expressionist Mascara (full size $21.99) uses botanical blend with beeswax to add length, volume and high pigment color.
EXO Supply Co. Pure Remover Wipes – Lavender (full size $12.00) repairs your nails as it safely lifts color (without that tell tale nail polish remover scent)
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Gel to Oil Overnight Repair Treatment (full size $28.00) – healing rosehip and argan oils, coconut alkanes, and algae extract work together to add shine while strengthening and smoothing strands
Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant – Lavender & Sage (full size $8.99) Smells delicious, like lavender soap. Soothes skin.
Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub (full size $9.99) uses sea kelp, lemon peel, and clay to exfoliate and slough away dead skin cells.
Odacite Ac+R (Acai and Rose) Youthful Glow Serum Concentrate (full size $55.00) With the mentioned essential oils, this anti aging serum not only improves fine lines, firmness and texture, but it also adds instant moisture.
Shamanuti Seaweed Toner (full size $28.00) Nutrient rich kelp balances your skin’s pH levels and refines pores. Use after cleansing to tone, nourish and hydrate.
HAN Skin Care Cosmetics Lip Gloss – Nude Rose (full size $14.00) Formulated with argan and acai oil, this gloss hydrates and nourishes lips.
I also received this oh so cute pocket sleek mist shaped as a bunny from TonyMoly!
Can’t wait to try them all!
