First and foremost, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!
I want to share with you my last Birchbox post of 2017 and also to take this opportunity to thank them for making me discover so many beauty items I have fell in love with. This month is not the exception.
The December theme is ‘Life’s Little Treasures’ and let me tell ya, some of the beauties I received are definitely that! So let’s talk about the 5 beauty items I received:
Oh WOW – was the first word that came out of my mouth when I put this on. I received the full size in Color Me Confident (cranberry) and it’s one of the best reds I have ever tried before. It is so pigmented and vibrant, it doesn’t wear off that easily and it leaves a lovely velvet matte colour on the lips, thanks to their Hello butter-smooth texture.
LOC or Love of Color is a Birchbox brand that creates beautiful make up that are paraben-free and most importantly, cruelty free. I TOTALLY recommend this brand and their matte lipstick range, especially this color.
I have to be completely honest with you but I have never heard of this brand before and this is one of the reasons why I love receiving my Birchbox every month. I keep on discovering new products every single month. I’ve learnt that OCC is a 100& vegan and cruelty-free brand, so kudos to them.
I’ve been wanting to have a lip primer for a long time but I have always settled for applying a random lip balm before any matte lipstick. So I was very excited to see this in my December box and also to try it on.
Some of the main ingredients used are Vitamin E, Peppermint and Hemp oil. I really liked the feeling of the first coat I applied to my lips but I did notice my lips absorbed it very quickly. However, the matte lipstick I applied after went on smoothly and there were no signs of dryness on my lips.
I mean, who doesn’t like a body scrub that smells like Jelly Beans?… right?! This is my second product from Baïja Paris and both smell divine but this one for instance, I feel like eating it haha
These scrubs are very gentle to the skin and you don’t even feel the need of applying body lotion after. I just discovered Birchbox is having a 50% discount on the body scrub in Fleur de Tiarè which I bet smell as delicious as the one I received.
I have said it before and I will continue saying this – I am totally hooked with this brand! Balance me products are made almost with 100% natural ingredients and are super gentle to the skin. I have purchased some of their products full size already because I just love how my skin feels after using them.
I am not a big fan of eye creams but if you are looking for one, I really recommend trying out this brand. Right now Birchbox is having a massive sale on their website and you can get this lovely eye cream with a 50% discount on their price.
I love when Birchbox sends me make up brushes, this is the third time I received a different one so I bet by next year I could have the full spectrum collection haha
What I really like about this brand is that their brushes are super soft and synthetic and blend your make up super well. This one is perfect to blend eye shadows and I am loving it.
