It is my favorite time of the month!! Subscription week :).
This week I have lots to share but thought I would start out with my August 2015 Birchbox. For those of you who don’t know, Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription box that sends you 5 beauty samples – anything from skincare to lifestyle samples. Sign Up Here!
This month I opted to get the Candidly Nicole Guest Editor Box and was SO Excited for the goodies!
This box came with:
Rene Furterer – Lissea Leave-In Smoothing Fluid : I think this is a nice product mainly because it has thermal protectant properties in it as well as the smoothing benefits. I heat treat my hair fairly regularly – so any products I can use that have thermal protecting is great!
OPI – Venice Collection Amore at the Grand Canal: OPI is one of my fave nail polish brands and I think this sample is so cute. It is a beautiful red that is so universal how can you go wrong. I think a true red like this is a must have for any nail polish collection.
dr. Brandt – Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant: This is the second time I’ve received this sample and I have to tell you I really like it. That being said – I personally would never spend the $78 on a full one (SO EXPENSIVE), but I do think the product works well and I really like the scent of it!
St. Tropez – Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion: OK – so THIS was why I opted for the Candidly Nicole box this month – for this baby here! I have pretty fair skin and really don’t use sunless tanner a lot because I hate applying it. I pretty much exclusively look splotchy or orange, but when I saw this product I thought the concept was so cool! The in shower aspect of this product for me took out a lot of the nervousness and the mess. I will prob be purchasing a full size of this simply because of how easy and almost dummy free it is!
LAQA & CO – Charm School Kit: This product is nice, I always appreciate dual use products (can be used for cheeks and face). I personally am not a huuuge fan of the shade that I got. It is a bit of a hot pink so on the lips makes me look like Barbie. On the cheeks it is nice when you sheer it out a bit to get just a pop of color. Overall, with the right shade I can see how this product could be great to carry along with you!
That’s all for this month! Hope you guys liked my box and let me know what great samples you recieved!
