Hey, I decided to do something fun. I joined this monthly delivery called Birch Box where for $10 a month they'll send you a box of beauty samples to try out. I recently realized I've been doing my makeup the same for at least 20 years and that's just weird. But I didn't really know where to start to change up my routine or try new things. Then I found out about this Birch Box subscription and I thought it would be a great opportunity to just try some things out.
I got my very first box a couple days ago and wanted to share my thoughts.
These are the items I received.
Voesh - Manicure Hand Mask
This is basically a set of latex gloves with lotion in them. I saw someone's review and they thought they were pretty lame. My cuticles could use some attention so when my husband isn't around to laugh at me I'll give these a go. But I would never buy them. Latex gloves make me think that I'm about to do something gross like clean out the bathtub drain, so they aren't my go-to for beauty care.
Amika - Blowout Spray
Whenever I get my hair done they always use some sort of spray and usually I think it seems like a waste so I never think of it myself but I'll try this next time I straighten my hair.
Caudalie - Hand and Nail Cream
I actually want and need some sort of hand cream so I was excited to have a sample to try. The problem with this lotion is it smells HORRIBLE. It's so bad, like putrid citrus. So I have to throw this out.
Ruffian - Nail Polish in Hedge Fund
I'm open to different nail polish colors but sparkly acid army green is not one of those colors. Trash.
Elizabeth Arden - Lip Gloss in Precious Petal
I figured they sent me this because I'm old. Elizabeth Arden Lip Gloss in Granny Pink. Thanks for the B-Day present Birch Box. I noticed younger girls received Benefit lip gloss so I'm pretty upset as any granny would be. I couldn't even read the color because I have old lady eyes. I guessed and googled it. Grrrr.
Can't wait for next month!
