July Birchbox & reviews!!!

Recently I signed up to receive products monthly from a company called Birchbox.  Birchbox is a customized monthly subscription service that allows you to sample products that they think you'll like based on information you give them.  They ask you about your style, skin coloring, hair color, hair texture, skin type, etc.

My first Birchbox came yesterday and I am loving it!  This is a really great little treat in the mail and so far my favorite product is the PurMinerals CC cream.  I used it instead of foundation today and I think my skin looks pretty good....I could have smiled, but smiling at myself in the mirror felt odd.

Here's the contents of my July Birchbox.  I would suggest checking out this company if you're into new products!  

even the box is cute!

This PurMinerals CC Cream is my favorite! I'll be buying a big tube of it soon!

The Coola Sunscreen felt as expected...cool on my skin.  It was nice, but I didn't like how it made my skin feel after...felt too much like sunscreen.  Yeah yeah, I know it IS sunscreen.  But I don't love it.

I was really excited to try these bobby pins, but they are a little hard to use and pulled at my hair.  
Cute, but not something I'd buy or use on a daily basis.  

The Lumiere d'hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect was awesome.  I used it after showering today and my hair was easy to comb and felt great.  I'll be buying a big bottle of this, for sure!

Caudalie Divine Legs Tinted Body Lotion.  Works exactly like it says.  The only problem is that the rest of my body is pale, so my tan legs look a little silly.  This would be AWESOME to use if you're tan and need a little extra omph on your legs before a night out.  Probably not for every day wear ;)

The verdict is that even though I wouldn't buy all of these products, it's cheaper to subscribe to Birchbox and test out products than it is to buy a full size product only to find out you don't love it.  I don't know about you, but I've wasted a lot of money over the years that way!

Happy Tuesday!
