Birchbox Breakdown: January 2012

Ok I know you have to be getting sick of my Birchbox reviews so I promise my next post will be something crafty lol. If you want to learn more about Birchbox go HERE. I would say this was all totally worth the $10!!


Theme for the month: Clarity


1. Juicy Couture: Viva La Juicy

My Opinion: Well at no fault to the perfume itself I am a little done with getting these little samples I would rather have more makeup samples lol. This actual scent is fine but I still love the one I received last month better by Harvey Prince (I bought the big bottle of that one).



2. Origins: Checks and balances frothy face wash

My Opinion: This one is okay I think I have said before I don’t notice a huge difference between cleaners unless they are really drying (and this one is not). I am still just as happy with something from a drugstore.



3. Stila: Smudge stick waterproof eyeliner

My Opinion: I have heard of months where people get full sized products but I have never got one until now and oh my gosh I couldn’t have got a better full sized product. I love this liner and plan to get it in other colors. It stays on and looks fresh all day.



4. VMV Hypoallergenics: Re-everything face-hand-body lotion

My Opinion: I love lotions especially when they are like this one that’s non greasy and hydrating and sometimes it’s nice to have a lotion around that isn’t highly scented.



Treat/Extra: Larabar: Mini Bar

My Opinion: Not a fan! I am not sure if it was just the flavor or what but eww I will not be having more of this.


Happy Monday!!!

Birchbox Breakdown: December 2011

Wow where has the time gone?

My December Birchbox was really late and didn’t come until a couple weeks ago but better late than never right? If you want to learn more about Birchbox go HERE.

The theme for December was Frolic and Fancy and this is what I got……..



1. Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional

My Opinion: I was really skeptical about this especially because I do have some fairly visible pores and I must say I was surprised and I think I will end up getting this in the full sized version.



2. Blinc eyeliner

My Opinion: I was scared to use this because I had a strange skin reaction to the brown blinc mascara and I don’t have the most steady hand for liquid eyeliner but I really did like this on my eyes. It was dramatic and fun to wear and it stayed on all day and came off easily when I was ready to remove it.



3. Harvey Prince – Ageless perfume

My Opinion: I love love love this fruity scent I will definitely be getting this in the full sized version.



4. Jouer Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink

My Opinion: I really like the color but not a huge fan of the formula.



Treat/Extra: ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape

My Opinion: To be honest I don’t have one for this product yet because I am two feet deep in snow and have no need for double-sided tape strips at the moment lol. I will keep you posted if/when I get the chance to use them.




AND: EBoost Orange Natural Energy Booster Drink Mix

My Opinion: I really did not like this at all it did not dissolve well and was chunky and the flavor was just plain yucky.


Have a happy day and I will be posting about my January Birchbox very soon!!
