I am still trying to get the hang of blogging and deciding where I want to go with it because there are so many fun things I want to post! I have an affinity for trying new beauty products and have also been a subscriber to Birchbox for a year and Ipsy for a few months.
I'm not sure my clear opinion on these subscription beauty boxes because they truly vary from month to month in terms of value. However, I do enjoy the surprise each month brings with these. Hey if I don't get mail I can at least look forward to these and who doesn't like surprises?!
This month though I realized some of my favorite hair products from Birchbox were almost all gone! Now I thought to had not found any new obsessions yet from it, I was pretty sad to realize they were almost all gone! With a double Birchbox points promo code, and free shipping I decided to give in.
The red bottle is Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle. It retails for $22 available only on the Birchbox site. This is great to use when blow drying or straightening as a smoother and heat protectant. However what finally clicked with me on this product is not only does it have a warm, sweet scent but it LASTS! Usually hair products do not smell all day in my hair but this leaves a beautiful perfume-like aroma that complents my other perfumes and lotions I use.
The next is Amika Nourishing Hair Mask which is a small tube for $12. I have long hair and love trying new masks once in awhile and the smell on this one hooked me too! It reminds me of Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy fragrance. It also did not leave my hair feeling greasy or weighed down.
Lastly is an item I tried and enjoyed and I added a full size to raise my total cost to $35 to get the promo! This $8 tin is J.R. Watkins peppermint foot salve. I bought this with hands and feet in mind and is nice before bed! It sinks into skin and the directions say to put on your feet before putting on socks. This is great after a long day because it does have a soothing affect in tired feet! I used some of this sample throughout last summer and will definitely be using it this summer as well especially to extend those pedis or soothe feet after walking around the pool all day! Can you tell I'm dreaming of warmer weather?!
Bottom line... If you are willing to pay a little more for some high quality, fabulous smelling products. Then these are for you! Subscribers of Birchbox, don't forget to use your points when you pay!
