I heard about Birchbox on The Small Things Blog and was intrigued, especially because I was about to be not-pregnant and wanted to do more with my hair and makeup and style. Something new!
You have to wait for an invitation so I waited and it finally arrived, shortly after we arrived in LR. Here is my first box:
Luna Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar: These were not new to me. I ate them some (lemon, oh so yummy) when I was running a lot when I lived in Louisville or the early days back in Raleigh. The texture is good, taste is good (not at good as Reece’s though) and I gave the rest to my hubs.
Viva La Juicy Le Fleur Couture perfume: I love trial sizes of perfume. It allows you to try it without buying a whole bottle – then maybe not liking it. My hubs is always the deciding factor on the perfume I wear…he said this was “I like it.” – Not too convincing, but I’ll keep it. It was light – not too strong.
Vitivia: These are colorful fun vitamins that you break open and use on your skin. Can’t we all use better skin? Especially as fall comes and we get into a new season – we need to thik about changing up our skincare. The good thing about this line is it tells you when to use these vitamins for the best results. Especially for non-vitamin skincare users like me.
Jouer Lip Enhancer: I tried this on yesterday and liked how it wasn’t gloopy or sticky. This takes time to see how it enhances – but it would also work well as a lipgloss with no color.
Mary-Lou Manizer Balm: I’ve never used a highlighing balm – but as I age and have more wrinkles and more dull facial skin in general – I need to start experimenting with these.
And that is one of my main reasons for gettin Birchbox – more fun things to experiment with!
