This month seemed to be everyone's least favorite month for Birchbox. I think they have spoiled us so much that even a great box looks bad in comparison to the fantastic ones we usually receive. I think if every month were like this one, I would not love it as much as I do, though.
Viva La Juicy Fleur smells SOOOOO good! I have worn this every day since I got the box and I still have half a tube left. It goes a long way- much longer than I had thought.
The Stila card was a big bummer. The picture online showed a product in a tube, but these cards came in shades that I was unable to use and would have only been one time use anyway (it is a three step foundation routine- hello high maintenance)!
The Wei products came with no instructions, so I wasted one of the packets. You are supposed to add it to your cleanser to create an exfoliant. I applied the crap straight to my face while in the bathtub. Here comes the disaster. First of all- OUCH!!! That stuff was R-O-U-G-H! Then all those grains sank to the bottom of the tub where I was unable to get comfortable. So I get out of the tub and that crap stuck to me like I had just laid out on a beach all day without a towel! Grrrr!!!! I was NOT a happy camper!
The Wei mud mask on the other hand was very soothing. I really enjoyed it!
The Schick razor was a great bonus! It is currently my favorite razor and although I already own about 6-7, I can always use a spare! ;)
Finally, the Q-tip box was actually cuticle oil. You break one end and the product flows to the bottom. Then you apply the oil to your nails. It was pretty neat, but I hate the feeling of the oil on my hands, so this was also a gift to my future-mother-in-law.
I did purchase the Q-tip lip quenchers and love them. I bought them so that my order would ship free and they were totally worth it. They condition with a hint of tint. Perfect for on the go!
