It is that time of the month again, (no not PMS, haha), the time when my monthly Birchbox was delivered. Sharing all that I’ve got is one of my fave posts to write. This month’s theme is self care. I like the packaging even though it is not my fave one, it is very zen I think. So all the product samples included in this box helps you relax, reduce stress and just look after yourself. Let’s see what I got…
So the first thing I am probably the most excited about it the new Benefit BADgal BANG mascara, which I almost bought when it launched, but luckily I debated so much that I saw that it will be included in every Birchbox this month. So now the wait is over, and I can finally try this mascara. I applied it earlier when doing my makeup and it does give voluminous and thick lashes. The wand is longer than a mascara wand usually is. It is lightweight on the lashes, it almost feels like I have nothing on there. It is a wet formula and it gets clumpy after a few strokes. Overall I do like this mascara, but I think I prefer the Roller Lash from Benefit just because I am not a fan of clumpy lashes.
Next thing is a Rituals foaming shower gel. I have received one of their foaming shower gel in a previous Birchbox so I’m excited to try this one too. Hopefully it smells nice. It is infused with cherry blossom and organic rice milk, all supposed to calm your mind and soothe your skin. I think it will be perfect to use in a shower after a long and stressful day.
I am also very excited to try something from GLAMGLOW. I see their products all over social media, but I personally have never tried anything from the brand. I got a sample of the SUPERMUD Clearing Mask Treatment, which is essentially a mud mask with activated charcoal and 6 acids. It’s supposed to clear your skin and pores and I like that use can use it as a spot treatment or only on your T-zone. I am lucky enough that I don’t really have spots or blemishes on my skin, but using mud mask usually makes me spotty so I might just try it out on my T-zone and see how it works there.
Something I was really excited to get was an under eye mask for BLAQ. I have been seeing everyone using these, so I have been wanting to give them a try too. Especially since I do have dark under eyes unfortunately, therefore I am curious if these will help with that. It’s also supposed to get rid of bags and puff and just to make you look well rested. I am all for this!
And lastly I have received a Bombshell Blowout Spray from Amika. Not that I am any good at blow-drying my hair, but hopefully spraying this into my hair will make it easier for me. I like the sound of the heat protection it offers too. My hair usually gets flat on the second day so I will be using this to give a bit of volume. Even though I have got thick hair, I have not got a lot of hair so I could always use some extra volume at the top.
That is all I got in this month’s Birchbox. I hope you like this “review” kind of post. What products you liked the most? Do you own or have you ever used any of these products before?
Until next time,
