My Birchbox is here: the Gossip Girl edition! I don’t really care about or watch Gossip girl, but I was pretty happy with my box! I was hoping to get the Sugar Plum lip tint, but the Dior mascara totally made up for it.
Of course, first up is the Dior Diorshow Extase mascara. I was pretty excited when I saw this, and tried it right away. I don’t wear mascara that often because they are usually heavy and my lashes become so dry and crunchy. My lashes are already quite long, so wearing mascara isn’t that necessary.
As you can see from the picture, this mascara looked awesome on my lashes. I applied only one coat and my eyelashes were lifted and didn’t clump at all. It was also quite light on my lashes which I totally appreciated. I’m definitely buying this mascara again, and I now have a reason to wear mascara! Overall, super impressed.
Next, I received the Miracle Skin Transformer™ Body SPF 20. Yay for SPF! I really like this, it is moisturizing and evens out my skin tone nicely. Birchbox tells me that it also firms the skin. It is chock full of awesome oils, aminos and hyaluronic acid.
Hello fragrance. I have too many fragrances! If Birchbox keeps this up, I’m going to be rolling in perfume vials. I’m not a fan of the Miss Dior fragrance from Dior, though I will wear it. I just don’t like the scent enough for the price. I own Dior Addict 2 and love it way more than this one. At least it had a spray nozzle, I hate the ones that you just pop the top off of.
I saw this Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo in previous birchboxes, and lusted after it. I love the Shu Uemura brand, so I knew that any product I received from them would most likely be awesome. I was pretty psyched to see that I finally received something from the brand! As I thought, I really liked this cleansing oil. I haven’t used a cleansing oil before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My hair was shiny and soft afterwards. I will be purchasing this soon to use every once in awhile between cleansing to get rid of product build up.
The extra this month was a note card. Meh, not really useful for me. I’ll probably randomly use it just to get rid of it. I don’t send cards that often. I would have preferred a different extra this month.
