Sorry for getting this Birchbox up so late. One of the reasons being that I just wasn't happy with this box's and few of the last ones I received. If you don't mine I will be ranting a bit here, so look away if you don't want to read on...lol
One of the reasons why I'm disappointed with Birchbox is, it arrives too late into the month. I know they have to ship in batches but I just wasn't happy with it arriving so late. It made me feel unmotivated to write up a blog post on them. I just don't think it's right for them to bill me on the 1 of the month and not receive my box until the last week of the month.
Over all at the beginning I was happy each month waiting to see what was inside each box, but as the months gone by; I've become more and more unsatisfied with the contents in the box. I was just getting tired of receiving sample items. I know it's $10 a month but I was hoping for much better items. There were quite a few items that I loved, like the nail polishes and makeup products. But it was about that time for me to end this long love affair. So I'm on the waiting list for ipsy. ^^
Okay so on to this, well last month's Birchbox!
This month was all about getting Red Carpet Ready, so Birchbox has packed what they think would be "Red Carpet Ready" items...I'm not so sure about that.
Color Club Nail Polish in Mamba
This is by far the most gorgeous red shade nail polish I have! This crimson color is so gorg that I just had to give it a shot. It's a very opaque color. I will be sure to do a blog post on this!
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint
I swatched this on my hand and it seems just a bit light for my skin tone. Plus the sample is so tiny that I'm not sure it would cover my whole face! It does claim it helps with shine control which is a plus, but bummed out about the size.
Kerastase Masque Chroma Riche
I'm not familiar with this brand but it seems to come straight up my alley. This is design for color-treated hair. Claims to nourish and hydrate your dry strands. Two 0.51 fl.oz. I have a lot of hair, so these two packages don't seem to come with much product. Non the less I will be giving this a try.
Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
To be honest I was pretty excited to try this product out. It's 20g. Enriched with papaya micro-crystals and aloe. I tried it the night I received it. It seems to do an okay good. Face felt pretty clean, so I used it again. I skipped a day, cause I didn't want to over exfoliate. Next morning I woke up with so many break outs! Never using this product again!
As a Valentine's Day treat (cause I deserve it!) Birchbox has added a Ghirardelli Chololate in my box. Okay so now I'm happy to recevie two things, nail polish and this chocolate.
Well that's the last box for me. Hey, maybe one day I'll get back on. But for now I can't wait for ipsy! Time for me to make a chocolate cake! ^^
