This month’s theme is “Say Yes” which is a bit….weird. I don’t know what that means. It sounds a bit date-rapey to me. And the box isn’t as pretty as the last two months, either.
Like this month’s ipsy, I only ended up keeping one product from Birchbox this month. It would have been two if I had longer hair.
I don’t know a lot about these brands. The full size values given on the information card are pretty high, though.
(I apparently didn’t get a picture of the value card)
“The designer’s first-ever scent mingles bright fruits and florals for an elegant vibe.”
I can’t judge perfume. It all smells alike to me because I’m super allergic to it. It just burns my nose. So, I have no idea if this is nice perfume or not. I’m sure someone would like it, though.
“Hydrator that blocks UV rays, protects against future signs of aging, and has a fresh cucumber scent.”
I’m tempted to keep this. I always need moisturizers. I’m just afraid of them triggering allergic reactions. I’ll check out the ingredients, though. If it doesn’t have added fragrances then I may give it a shot.
“This alcohol-free toner packed with botanicals soothes and hydrates all skin types”
“This blendable waterproof eyeliner goes on smoothly and stays put all day”
This is a darker metallic blue. I’m keeping this because I wear eyeliner fairly often and I don’t have one this shade. I have had bad luck with waterproof products. They tend to burn my eyes but I’m going to give it a shot.
BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
“This customer fave face scrub mimics the effects of microdermabrasion for glowing, smooth skin.”
This is a very pretty headband but it seems to small to actually be a headband. It would make a better hair tie but my hair is to short for a hair tie. I may keep this, though. It’s cute.
This month also came with a code to enter see if you won a free gift. I haven’t been able to enter mine, yet.
Birchbox is $10 a month and you get 5 samples with the occasional 6th bonus item. The items tend to be higher end than some of the other boxes I have gotten. You can subscribe here: https://www.birchbox.com/invite/vexingcircumstance
