BirchBox Product Review
I was gifted beauty when I was gifted a BirchBox subscription for my birthday! I always pondered a subscription but wasn't sure if I would enjoy receiving so many samples. I like to run out of my current products before purchasing more, I don't like to have products sitting in my cabinets forever. But the sizes of the samples are not as overwhelming to use up as I thought and every product so far I have used to the last drop!
This review is about the contents of my second box. I am very impressed with the curation of each box. This box is perfect for the upcoming seasons and weather, also great for a on-the-go lady like me!
Luminous 3 Minute Peel
Apply to clean skin and continuously massage skin in a circular motion for 2-3 minutes then wash off with mild cleanser.
My notes : Lightly scented and light when applied. It is acid free so it made me less nervous to try this peel. While massaging into your skin the product collect and lifts dead skin and then you wash it off. My skin looked squeaky clean! I was nervous it would make my problem dry areas on my face more dry but it did not have that effect.
Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
Shake well and spray on roots. Let set for 2 minutes then brush out until powder is removed.
My experience : I tested this product on my Insta Story to show its effects on 1 Day unwashed hair. Light ,lovely and 'feel pretty' scented. It worked very well! My hair looked and felt fresh. I went to the beach and the next morning my hair was still decent enough without a second spritz to throw up in a messy bun. I would buy a bottle for sure. I can see why it is an award winner!
Pores No More Cleanser
Apply to damp skin, lather and rinse well with warm water.
My experience : This cleanser was from my first BirchBox but I love it so much I wanted to add it to this review! This lathers a lot! After rinsing it off and pat drying my face I was in awe of the immediate results. Even my boyfriend tried it and wants a full bottle. My pores never looked so small!
Apply to hair for 2-3 minutes then rinse off.
My experience : The featured ingredient , Sea Buckthorn Berry, I had never heard of so I googled it. It is a miracle herb that treats arthritis , slows aging process, improving sight and boosting immunity, along with other wonderful benefits. I need it in tea form! The product has a nice scent. My hair is frizzy at the ends and I noticed my hair more tame after treatment. I straighten my hair and rub a little bit of the product in my hand then apply it freely to the ends of my hair as a leave in frizz tamer for a beachy look.
Mineral Face SPF 30 Unscented Matte Tint
Apply to face as needed.
My experience : The day I took these product photos for this post I applied this SPF. My bofriend got sunburned and I didn't ( I feel like a jerk for not sharing it! ) The matte finish kept me looking cool in heat. Felt like a primer consistency and probably makes for a good one. I didn't wear any makeup that day to the beach so I will have to try it out under makeup.
EDURE. Water-Resistant Mascara
Apply to lashes.
My experience : Rarely do I ever find mascara that has the dream combo of a great brush and formula. And the name doesn't let you down. It lasted over 24 hours and my lashes looked full and long. Perfect for being sporty and pretty this summer. ARROW is BirchBox's line of athleisure inspired beauty products. !!Major Bonus Points!! for being paraben-free, vegan, cruelty free and made in the U.S.
