Birchbox points and a coupon code were burning a hole in my online pocket so I made a haul and got a few good summer finds.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – This is the product I tried out the weekend of my anniversary and I really like it! The taupe color matches my blonde brows well and fills out the sparse places making them look nice and full. The spooly brush helps make them look natural and groomed.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Facial Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel – I love trying out new face washes! I also love one that can take all my makeup off which was why I picked out this two in one product. I’ve tried out this French brands moisturizer and liked it so I am excited to try this honey scented cleanser.
The Beachy and Bright box is the featured box this month for July. When I picked out my lip color for sample choice I saw that buying this box for $10 was an option for subscribers. So glad I got the best of both worlds – now I will have every color of Stila Liquid Lipstick they are featuring this month! The box design is also super fun!
Supergoop! Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 – I actually got this a few years ago in a Sephora Sun Safety kit and haven’t used it much. Since I got it I’ve been using it everyday. It’s really great – I love the high SPF and the anti aging aspect. It is also a moisturizer and feels very nice on my skin. It’s also paraben and fragrance free!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bella – I’ve been using the color Beso ever since I got it as a sample and I really like. It’s a very intense color and really stays put! I love bright colors so these are perfect for me.
Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray – Everyone is apparently obsessed with this brand and the scent of their products but they seem very overpriced to me. I haven’t used an aerosol wave spray before and this one is nice but I wasn’t wowed. I do like that it is a nice size sample though. It added a nice amount of wave and has a lot of good for you ingredients.
Juara Enzyme Radiance Scrub – This product is currently out of stock so I guess it’s popular but for $38?! That is one overpriced face scrub. You’re supposed to leave it on for 5 mins but I really didn’t want to do that after my face was all wet. I just scrubbed and washed it off. It was ok but left a bit of residue. I like other scrubs by Aveeno and Vasanti better.
The Balm Cosmetics Balm Desert Blush/Bronzer – I like this deeper color, it actually works on me. It stays put and provides a really nice glow. As usual the packaging on this Balm product is super cute!
This was my mystery sample pack and I freaked because it is the best one ever!!! I actually got this same cute little kit for Christmas and I believe it’s worth $25! My beauty blender is still going strong but I’m so happy to have a backup. I’ve used up the solid cleanser that it came up but I actually like the one I got from Sephora way more. It comes in a little case, has a great scent and makes my blender really clean. I also really love the Cynthia Rowley lip stains that Birchbox carries so much that I already swapped for this color. All in all this was a great haul!
