All Caught Up

Standard

Hey there readers, ok so I’m all caught up with the previous posts from my old blog. I ended up cancelling Birchbox after a few months and going for Ipsy which I felt was more geared toward makeup and the samples were more of what I was looking for. I love Ipsy. As soon as I get this months box I will let you know what I get. I also got Beauty Box 5 this month with a free coupon code. I didn’t cancel in time so I am going to get it for one more month, but I won’t be continuing after that, the samples seemed smaller and not as much makeup as I wanted, but it’s always great to get to try something for free…am I right? I have some great posts about some awesome bargains I got coming soon too..so please stay tuned! It will take me a little bit to start getting into a routine and blogging regularly. MY mind is somewhat all over the place,there are a million things I want to do lola nd only so much time, which reminds me of the most perfect thing I saw on Pinterest that sums me up quite nicely:

Anyway, that about sums me up. See you all soon with lots of great random chaos for you to mull over!

Birchbox

Standard

To kick it off I’m gonna start with my recent discovery of BirchBox. If you don’t know what BirchBox is, let me explain. BirchBox is a monthly box you get delivered to your house filled with great new beauty samples that you can essentially try before you buy. It only costs $10 a month..such a deal! So of coarse this is right up my alley! I just happened to receive my first box today! So I thought I’d share what great stuff my first box had in it with ..well..anyone who decides to read this…..here we go.
My first product was folle de joie eau de parfum…from joie…a very light earthy perfume…I like it. How great is it to try a new perfume without having to buy a bottle and decide it’s not for you, especially considering the full sized bottle of this is $98. This might not be the usual kind of perfume I go for, but I’m kinda liking it.
Next product in the box was Terranga Body Cream by TIOSSAN Dakar…This stuff is $38 per bottle. It’s very rich , I love the feel of it after it’s absorbed. I love the fact that it’s animal cruelty free and full of antioxidants. It has a great sort of light organic smell to it, really nice.
Product #3 is moisture shampoo and conditioner from Keratherapy…these are keratin infused professional products..can’t wait to try them…I’ll keep you updated on how they work.
Product #4 is an Ivory Lace Highlighter from Chella..it looks like I received a full sized product here…bonus! and this one goes for $18. this is a highlighting pencil that can be used on the browbone, blemishes, under eye circles, and even some facial contouring…sounds great all around. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this.
The 5th product I got was a great skinny minni liquid eyeliner from Eyeko London..this is great it is a liquid eyeliner in marker form, with a really fine tip.The full sized product is $16 . This seems like such a simple alternative to the normal liquid liner. I look forward to trying it ad I’ll keep you updated.
BirchBox also sent me a bonus gift of a full sized Mint Cookie Ghirardelli chocolate bar….this is a new flavor and oh wow is it yummy!Definately worth a try for the holodays 🙂

So that’s it for this months Birch Box….can’t wait to try everything out and let you know how all of the products are…see you soon….Roberta
