Birchbox: January 2014



100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara

This formula is all natural.  Using fruit pigments (fear not, it’s still black mascara) this mascara lengthens and conditions.  The nonirritating formula is great for sensitive eyes.  I’m putting that to the test as I type.  With a hard contact lens in my eye (I wear soft in the other) is really picky about what I can put on it.  The application was great, it looks awesome (very natural, which I like) and so far, no problems.  Birchbox just might have found another must have for my collection.

Full Size: .24oz/ 7g = $18

Sample Size: .1 oz/ 3g

Sample Value: $7.71


Nail Rock Glitter Manicure

This will be a fun (albeit, messy) new manicure to try out.  Like most manis, I’m supposed to paint two layers of the polish on my nails, but this time I have to dunk them in the glitter before I let it dry.

Full Size (.34fl oz): $7

Sample Size: Full Size

Sample Value: $7


Fekkai Glossing Cream

I have used this product since the middle of college when I worked for Bath & Body Works.  While I was there Fekkai products launched in the store, and the Glossing Cream was the big demo and seller for that brand  This product is am amazing finishing cream.  The olive oil leaves hair feeling silky soft and looking brilliant.  When I watched Birchbox’s January sneak peek and saw this was an item that could end up in boxes, I was truly hoping it would end up in mine.  Thanks Birchbox, for preventing me from having to go find a different finishing cream.

Sample Size: 45g (1.6 oz)

Sample Value: $8.00

This is a stronger fragrance with notes of Indian Tuberose and Japanese orange flower.  Nice for the winter months.

Sample Value: $1.63


Birchbox Find: Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion


While I’ve always enjoyed Burt’s Bees, I can’t say I have tried too many of their products.  The way my skin has been acting lately, intense hydration is exactly what the doctor ordered.  Birchbox also threw in a $3.00 off any of their intense hydration line coupon, which is nice.  Full Size (1.8 oz/ 50g): $18

Sample Size: 0.25 oz/ 7g

Sample Value: $2.52

Total Box Value: $26.86
