september ’14 birchbox.

SUPER excited to share my Birchbox goodies with you girls! (For those unfamiliar with Birchbox, it’s one of the original subscription beauty boxes. A glorious little present on your doorstep every month for only $10. Click here to join!)

This months theme is Fashionista which we can totally relate to.

The Glitter Life September Birchbox

1. Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner: We’re all about honesty here. With that, I was iffy about trying this silver liner. It goes on super smooth and is really pretty mixed with my usual black liner.

2. Dr Brandt Pores No More® Vacuum Cleaner™: This cleanser instantly tightened my pores. Right. Away. There’s an amazing cooling sensation that’s an added bonus.

3. Macadamia Professional™ Flawless Cleansing Conditioner: Love an XL (yet TSA friendly!) sample! More iffy-ness here. No suds and all-in-one? EEEK. I plan on giving this a try over the weekend. Stay tuned…

4. Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara: Oh my! Another large sample! I’ve actually used this mascara before and love it. No clumps, flakes or smearing.

5. Naobay Body Radiance Lotion: Perfect to keep on my desk to apply throughout the day. A light, lemony scent.

This might be one of the best Birchboxes yet! ALL of this is one adorable box for $10? It doesn’t get much better than that. Click here to join!

IT HAS ARRIVED. My May 2014 Birchbox. Let’s unbox, shall we?

the goods.

Cotz SPF 40: I was super stoked to receive this right before Memorial Day fun in the sun! Even more excited that it’s super lightweight and leaves NO grease. A+.

Nexxus Color Assure Trio: Love trying new hair products. Upkeep on long, colored hair isn’t always easy. This Nexxus Color Assure line is just okay. I still much prefer my Moroccan Oil products.

32 Breath Crystals: So. Full disclosure. I haven’t tried these. And I’m thinking about giving them to my dog who could use them more than me. {kidding…}

Marcelle Power Serum: I have a really great skin regimen going on right now with my Dermalogica products, but I gave this serum a whirl. It’s good, but I feel like you would definitely have to buy a full size bottle to see if the results are what they claim.

Pixi Lip Balm: Love this fun pink shade! Give your pout a tint and moisturize at the same time. A win win all around.

april ’14 birchbox.

Hi Girls Hi! Excited to share my April Birchbox goods with you. There’s nothing better than seeing this gem show up on my doorstep every month:

The Glitter Life Birchbox
my goodies!

 

Kind Bars: Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt: I immediately ordered a case of these after trying. It’s the perfect mix of sweet + salty.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo: Less than ideal for brunettes as the spray is super white, but I did enjoy the smell. Blondes, this is all you.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner: So amazing. Will absolutely be purchasing when I run out. Glides on super smooth and how precious is the packaging!? I’m a sucker for gold dots…

theBalm “How Bout Them Apples”: This lip cream is the pop of color you’ve been looking for. BONUS: it really lasts.

Nyakio Coffee Face Polish | Body Scrub | Face Oil: Honesty is the best policy… These products really made me break out. With that said, I understand everyone’s skin is different! But for me, it didn’t work. I don’t need to stray from my dermalogica routine. A++.

march ’14 birchbox.

The Glitter Life Birchbox March
the goods.

DDF Oil Free Moisturizing Dew: Immediately fell in love. I loathe a heavy moisturizer. This glides on and leaves no residue. 100% purchasing the full size.

English Laundry No. 7: So fresh and so clean. Perfect to spritz on after work and freshen up.

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment: L and I are big fans of Ojon Dry Shampoo. Unfortunately, this treatment does not smell the same. It’s fairly terrible. And no miraculous change to my hair. I will stick to the Moroccan Oil Repair Mask.

Coola Tinted Matte SPF 30: I always have Coola products in my pool/beach bag. I love that this SPF is tinted and matte! We don’t need additional shine in the sun…

Gilchrist & Soames Body Lotion: Super clean scent and lightweight. No greasy feeling afterward.

Ghirardelli Dark Cherry Tango: If there’s one the Ghirardelli knows, it’s chocolate. The cherry + almond + dark chocolate blend is simply perfection.

february ’14 birchbox.

This month, Birchbox teamed up with Us Weekly to get us red-carpet ready. After all, the Oscars are right around the corner…

The Glitter Life Birchbox
the goods.

Bain De Terre Color Preserving Shampoo | Conditioner: Look. We all want our hair color to last as long as possible. And that’s exactly what Bain De Terre says they’re doing. I will report back after a few uses, but so far just the smell and lather are making me a believer.

Caudalie S.O.S Morning Eye Rescue: Huge Caudalie fan. Huge. Every product I’ve ever tried has been amazing. This eye rescue is nothing short of that. Smooth, lightweight, and morning puffiness = gone.

OPI Sheer Tint Top Coat: It’s no secret that L and I are obsessed with painting our nails. With that said, I don’t understand this polish. Why would you want a translucent yet colored top coat? I’m probably missing something, so please fill me in.

Harney & Sons Tea Sachet: I *always* have a tea bag or two in my desk for a mid-day pick me up. These are perfect, delicious, and pretty…

JAN BIRCH

1. Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Crème: Just the right amount of shine, does not weigh my hair down, and still moisturizes. BONUS: not greasy.

2. Coastal Scents® Revealed Palette Set: The perfect color scheme for those looking for neutral colors {like myself}. Lasts throughout the work day.

3. Juicy Couture – Viva La Juicy: L and I have both owned a bottle of this perfume. Still a favorite of mine!

4. Burt’s Bees® Intense Hydration Day Lotion with Clary Sage: As a long time fan of Burt’s Bees, I was happy to see this lotion in my Birchbox. Smells great and goes on smooth. Soaks in, doesn’t seem to sit heavy.

5. Nail Rock: Helloooo, glitter! This polish is super fun. A little messy, but pretty nonetheless.

Eslor Skincare System: Really enjoyed sampling this line. The cleanser leaves your skin feeling soft, then following it up with the facial scrub made my skin feel super clean. You don’t need a lot of the moisturizer to cover your face. A little bit goes a long way!

Fatty Sundays Gourmet Chocolate Covered Pretzels: Such a yummy treat! Sweet and salty perfection.

Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy™:The CURE for wintery, chapped hands. This feels great and is hydrating, but doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy so I can’t touch things after I use it!

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss: This gloss is great for a sheer, shiny tint of color alone or on top of your favorite lip stick!

Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray: Meh. Nothing exciting to report here. It didn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy, however, I don’t think it had as much hold either.
