BIRCHBOX January 2015 UNBOXING





BIRCHBOX is a monthly subscription box in which you pay $10/month to receive monthly deliveries of personalized beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples, tailored to your profile.
For this month their theme is "2015. LET'S DO THIS". The card says that they are speeding full force into 2015 with a vow to make the most of every minute. 


1.  Balance Me Wonder EYE Cream

     A full size retails for $38.   This is an antiaging cream that conquers wrinkles and dark circles at the first signs of aging.  

     REVIEW:  THIS CREAM CENTERS ON TAKING CARE OF YOUR EYES.  I HAVE BEEN BATTLING WITH DARK CIRCLES AND I'VE BEEN CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR A PRODUCT THAT WOULD HELP ME. THE CREAM IS LIGHT AND HAS A FLORAL SMELL. I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE THIS A TRY BUT THE SMALL SAMPLE MAYBE WON'T GIVE ME ANY RESULT =( I WOULD HAVE TO BUY A FULL SIZE OF IT.


2.  Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Gel

     Full Size retails for $9.99 - $17.50  This is a water-based, never-crunchy formula that fends off frizz and leaves curls sleek and shiny.

     REVIEW:  MY SAMPLE CAME IN A 30ML SACHET.  THIS GEL IS NOT STICKY UNLIKE OTHER GEL PRODUCTS OUT THERE DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT IS WATER BASED.  ONE THING I DIDN'T LIKE IS THE SMELL.  IT'S LIKE THE ONE YOU SMELL IN BEAUTY PARLORS. I'M NOT A FAN OF THIS AND WOULD JUST MAYBE DUMP IT ON THE TRASH.


3.  Essential Elements Wake Up Rosemary Body Lotion

     A full size retails for $19.  This lotion is a lightweight hydrator that heals dry skin and energizes with invigorating rosemary and mint. 

     REVIEW:  THIS LOTION IS TRULY LIGHT ON YOUR SKIN.  I LIKE THE COOLING EFFECT OF IT. IT HAS A VERY STRONG ROSEMARY SMELL WITH A HINT OF MINT.  THIS PRODUCT SMELLS LIKE VICKS VAPOR RUB. 


4.  Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal Eye & Face

     A full size of this product retails for $36.  It claims that it covers and helps get rid of blemishes and dark circles.

     REVIEW:  THIS PRODUCT CONCEALS AND TREATS AT THE SAME TIME.  THE COLOR IS NEUTRAL. IT IS CREAMY AND GLIDES ON SMOOTHLY.  IT HAS NO SCENT ON IT. I JUST HOPE IT WORKS. I NEED PRODUCTS LIKE THIS.


5.  theBalm Stainiac

    Full size retails at $17.  Stain that gives cheeks and lips a sheer, rosy tint.

     REVIEW:  THIS PRODUCT REALLY STAINS AND LASTS LOOOOOONG WAY TO LONG. I'M SCARED TO TRY IT ON MY CHEEK BECAUSE I HAD A HARD TIME REMOVING THE SWATCH THAT I DID ON MY HAND. IF YOU MISTAKENLY APPLIED A LOT YOU CANNOT JUST WIPE IT ONE STROKE. YOU HAVE TO REALLY SCRUB TO GET IT OFF.  I WOULD USE IT ON MY LIPS BUT NO WAY WILL I TRY IT ON MY CHEEKS. OH AND ONE MORE THING BE CAREFUL OF YOUR WHITE AND LIGHT COLORED CLOTHES WITH THIS ONE.  WASHING IT OUT IS A PAIN ON THE _______ !!!! IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN....

Overall, i was not satisfied with what i got today. I hope the February box would be way better than this month.
