Birchbox - July 2016

Beautiful Nutrition Fadeless Citrus Antioxidant Shampoo and Conditioner (full size $12 each; sample size ~$3.50 each) – This shampoo and conditioner duo are meant for color-treated hair and contain citrus antioxidants to help “maintain hair’s vibrancy” and repair damage.  I’m a big fan of citrus scents when it comes to shampoo/conditioner, so I was definitely pleased with the scent (I already own the Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse, so I was familiar the bright, crisp scent).  The duo performs well; I’ve used better and I’ve used worse.  I feel as though I’d need to use it longer to test their claims.

Birchbox - July 2016

Molinard Muguet Eau de Parfum (full size $65, sample size $1) – This scent was an unexpected surprise! When I saw the packaging, I assumed I would get lily-of-the-valley (as the name suggests), but perhaps a heavier version.  Maybe it was the darker colors of the card?  In any case, this is a straight-forward green floral.  The lily-of-the-valley is right at the top, with some jasmine, lilac, and sandalwood to round it out.  If that sounds good to you, give it a shot!

Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara (full size $14, sample size ~$7) – I haven’t tried this one, even though it was my sample choice for the month.  This is probably an example of “subscription box problems”, but I have so many mascara samples that this one will have to wait.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask (full size 75ml, $34; sample size 15ml, $6.80) – Another one I haven’t used.  Again with the “subscription box problems”… so many face masks, only once face.

 

Box Value: ~$22
