On to the box!
This is what I received in the February Birchbox:
- Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - This is an exfoliating powder to which you add water to create a paste to buff dead cells away. I did not have high expectations for this, even as I was using it. It was a little hard to create the right consistency (especially not even knowing what the consistency should be). I had to make some adjustments with more powder and more water to get to a paste that I could massage on my face for 1 minute. I didn't feel like it was really doing anything while I was massaging it in, but after I rinsed, I could tell a HUGE difference. My skin felt SO clean and so smooth. I was shocked, because it's been a little dry and flaky in patches lately. It still felt really soft and smooth in the morning. I would love to use this regularly, but at $50 for a full size bottle, it's above the price that I'm willing to pay.
- Eye Rock Designer Liner - These are single use, stick-on eye liner strips. They are pretty crazy, so I don't know when I'd wear them except for a costume party or to be funny. I just don't wear eye makeup like that. I'll hang on to them for the right event, so I can't really give a review of these. 2 packs of 4 are $13, which isn't bad if you have something specific to buy these for.
- Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint - I'm not a big fan of tinted moisturizers because my skin get a little oily throughout the day. I use a moisturizer and then mineral powder foundation, so this type of product just isn't my thing. Full-size $38, which I'd never pay for any tinted moisturizer.
- Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum - I was surprised I received this because I didn't indicate that I am concerned about acne in my profile. I do get blemishes here and there, so I wasn't terrible disappointed. I didn't really like the serum much though because it was pretty liquidy, which made it hard to dispense the correct amount without squeezing out too much. I can't speak for how well it works, as something like this needs to be used for a longer period of time than that sample will allow. It didn't burn or dry out my skin though. Full-size is $29, which seems like a lot, but if it's a product I needed and liked, I'd probably pay for it if I had a lot of acne.
- Supersmile Powdered Mouthrinse - Add water to this powder-filled pouch to create a mouthwash to freshen your breath and whiten your teeth. I really like the convenience of this because it would be easy to throw in your purse or for travel. Pack of 24 is $16. I'd probably buy these if I traveled a ton or was on the go all of the time. As it is, I usually only use mouthwash at night, at which time I'm home.
Note: I purchased my Birchbox subscription on my own accord and am not being reimbursed for this review. I just really like the concept.
