BirchBox December 2011

Have I mentioned that I love getting these box subscriptions? It’s like Christmas all year round!

The best thing is opening up a box and seeing things that you’re beyond excited to try. Maybe because you’ve heard of a product; maybe you’ve read a review and are wanting to try it out (but don’t want to commit to buying a full sized prduct) and maybe there’s something that you would have never thought to try, and then you do… and you LOVE it.

I know that was a really long sentence, but you know what I’m talking about!

If you aren’t a subscriber to BB - follow my referral link  http://www.birchbox.com?raf=i7x7z   What are you waiting for? It’s only $10 a month, shipping is free and look what you’re in for!! ;) 

Benefit Cosmetics  The POREfessional  -  This make up primer product diminishes the appearance of pores and goes on velvety smooth. I use this product on my cheeks where I have a few large to medium pores, it really does a great job diminishing them, I put it on before my tinted moisturizer and follow with powder.

Harvey Prince  Ageless Perfume  -  This is a pretty light fruity scent, with energizing grapefruit. I love light fruity scents. 

Jouer  Moisturizing Lip Gloss in BirchBox Pink  -  OK, when I saw this hot pink gloss I was really afraid I was going to look like a circus clown. BUT… I’m adventurous and always like to try new looks. This is such a pretty gloss that is buildable. I like to wear it sheer (one coat) and it really perks me up. I never thought I’d be wearing hot pink gloss, but thanks to BirchBox, I am now! 

Orofluido  Beauty Elixir  -  This is literally liquid gold for your hair. I love the non-greasy feeling of this elixir and I love how my hair shines when using Orofluido. A little goes a long way!

This month BB was generous and there were 2 extras in my box!

PREP ShowStoppers  Designer Fashion Tape  -  just in time for that holiday party, the double sided tape keeps clothes perfectly in place. (no wardrobe malfunctions)

RECHARGE EBOOST  -  Orange Natural Energy Drink  -  (not pictured)  I drank half of this and had energy all day long. It got me through Lizzy’s dance rehearsal and some holiday shopping!

LaRocca Skincare 24K gold exfoliant cleanser

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I wanted to share a review on a little pot of gold that I received in my Beauty Army kit in February 2012.

The LaRocca Skincare 24K gold exfoliant cleanser is a 2-in-1, which I love. This creamy cleanser a has micro fine exfoliant that is super gentle, gentle enough for daily use. The cleanser cleans the skin and the exfoliant removes the dull surface skin. 

After using it for almost a week now, I can say that the cleanser feels good on the skin and my face and neck feels good afterwards. Not dry or tight or greasy. My face looks bright and refreshed.
