My Birchbox for this month contained:
- theBalm InStain Long Wearing Powder Staining Blush in Swiss Dot
- Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo
- Beauty Protector Protect & Condition
- Tan Towel Self-Tan Towelettes
- Caldrea Body Lotion in Aloe Water Apricot
Quick thoughts about each item:
theBalm’s Instain is a great product. Although the sample size makes it difficult to pick up product with a large blush brush, I still end up with a result that is both natural looking and long-wearing. Swiss Dot is a beautiful peach shade and I will be picking up the full-size soon!
Beauty Protector’s Shampoo and Conditioner work well together to give me smooth, shiny hair. I don’t get a ton of volume from the products alone, but blow drying my hair upside down solves that problem. Also, the scent? Excellent. Exactly like the Protect & Detangle spray I received in a previous Birchbox.
The Tan Towel… I didn’t use. I don’t use self tanners, so these samples are always a loss for me. I will be giving it to someone else. *shrug*
Caldrea’s Aloe Water Apricot body lotion is decent. It’s moisturizing and doesn’t feel greasy at all. The scent is a pleasant light floral, though I don’t pick up on the apricot at all.
I was very pleased with this month’s box, despite having a Birchbox Extra that I won’t use. Birchbox continues to impress (and I’ve been a subscriber for over two years… so I’ve been through quite a few boxes).
