JANUARY BIRCH BOX
Subscription boxes are so hot right now. Can you believe I've never subscribed to one before? My sister-in-law, Jen, gifted me a one year subscription to BirchBox! I am so so pumped on this gift and she had Luscious Judy's best interest in mind! Once I got my subscription set up, I took a quiz that asked questions like, "How would you describe your skin tone?", "How do you style your hair?", "What's your level of beauty knowledge?". BirchBox uses this information to hand-pick items and send a curated box based on your beauty needs!
I was so pumped when I received my first BirchBox! I truly loved that it was different than the rest of my first who had also received theirs. After using these products for a month, I can't believe I haven't been doing this THE WHOLE TIME.
First of all, I live for liquid eyeliner. Secondly, I was in need of a new liner and this came at the perfect time. I am not super into fat, thick eyeliner and the tip of the pen is so small that I can still make a rather slim cat eye. Hooray! It lasts 8+ hours and doesn't smudge!
I've never been to Provence, but I'd like to imagine that it smells as delicious as this perfume. It is floral yet musky and so very light. At first I hated that it was a dabber sample and not a spray, but I enjoy putting it behind my ears and on my collar bone. Strong notes of jasmine, orange blossom, and violet, with a subtle undertone of amber.
This Winter has been BRUTAL for my lips. I'm pretty sure they were on fire for the entire month of December. I had been using a Neosporin Overnight Lip Treatment, but couldn't find the perfect product to use during the day. Formulated with 100% Medical Grade lanolin, this is perfect for dry, cracked lips. Dr. Lipp's Miracle Balm has seriously saved me!! I love the hint of shine that it adds while providing serious relief. It can also soothe sunburns and tame eyebrows too!
Hand cream is also very necessary when it comes to surviving the winter! Dry hands are not my best look. Plus, I wash my hands so much; I need to give my hands proper TLC. Concocted with essential oils and botanicals, the aroma is very intense! I can barely hand the citrus. It smells like iced green tea on a cripsy Spring day. This hand cream has residency in my purse.
This product smells like coconut but also like a doll and I love it!! My hair is super prone to tangles and I always shower at night, so detangler is so necessary. It minimizes frizz while providing protection against UV rays and heat. I could totally see myself stashing this in my beach bag for post ocean swim suncare. It's non-greasy and 100% vegan!
I am so happy to be exploring the world of subscription boxes! A couple of days after I got this I subscribed to LOLA, a tampon subscription service. I was able to custom my boxes with different sized tampons! They are 100% natural cotton and biodegradable. I love the fact that they are delivered to my door and I don't have to remember to buy them! Plus, I just really want to receive mail whenever I can. :)
