So, I didn’t exactly celebrate last month’s Birchbox, so I’m hoping that my July box will blow me away… especially being that it’s my birthday month… woohoo!!
Alright… here we go!!
Number 4 | Super Comb Prep & Protect. It’s a sulfate-free leave-in conditioning mist that protects hair against UV rays.
This should be helpful because summers here in Las Vegas is… well, quite BRUTAL. We’ll see how it works out for my Sin City locks.
(Sample Value: $6.80 ~ Retail: $32/200 ml )
Dr. Jart | Ceramidin Cream Repairs skin damage and provides hydration for up to 26 hours!
Ok, I don’t have super dry skin problems… but my 12/yo, JRoc occasionally suffers from eczema, and quickly browsing through the reviews from those who have already tried the sample, this works MIRACLES!
So… here’s to MIRACLES!! (Crossing fingers, toes, eyes, and braiding my hair!!)
(Sample Value: $2.88 ~ Retail: $48/50ml)
|theBalm cosmetics | InStain Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush in Swiss Dot (peach). Pigments that last all-day.|
I normally don’t wear blush. I’ve seen one too many blush #fails to even attempt to walk on that side of the tracks. HOWEVER… this blush is very subtle… very natural looking. I’ll give this one a shot and report back with my results.
P.S. I’ve seen pix of this sample elsewhere and I didn’t expect it to be sooo teeny! But they say a little of this goes a long way, so size apparently doesn’t matter… here.
(Sample Value: $4.40 ~ Retail: $22/0.09 oz)
WEI | Pomegranate Buffing Beads. Made from finely ground pomegranate peels, this scrub brightens and evens out skin tones…
Ok, so how this works is… you mix these beads with your favorite facial cleanser and massage onto face to buff away dead skin cells.
(Sample Value: $2 ~ Retail: $20/Twenty 0.5 g packets)
WEI | Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask. Nondrying deep-cleaning mask packed with purifying China clay.
(Sample Value: $5 ~ Retail: $42/8 masks at 8ml )
Confession Time: You know… I feel like I was spoiled with my first box in April that contained products (several FULL SIZED ones at that!) with a total value of $81.60!! Now I can’t help but compare all my boxes to it… can you blame me? (Of course not! Blame that chick over there instead. Thx.)
But… from my $10 members fee, getting an EXTRA $11+ worth of products to try (most I wouldn’t even have known about on my own) is still a pretty cool thing! I’m very hopeful about how Ceramidin will work on my son’s eczema, curious to check out the InStain Blush, and with summer here, I so look forward to giving the WEI Buffing Beads & Mud Mask and the Number 4 Hair Protect a shot!
I think I’m happier with my Birchbox this month than I was with my June box! #YAYME!
