Good morning beautiful people 🙂 Ive been away traveling for work and when I return home I find a nice welcome home package waiting for me. Yes its Birchbox time.

Derma E Anti Wrinkle Vitamin A and Glycolic Scrub – Trialled this last night after a draining and dehydrating flight home, it just gave my skin a boost. Its going to be my travel companion.

Fake Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo – Loved the fragrance of the dry shampoo, but yet to try it properly.

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash – Yet another body wash, just like any other body wash…..mehhh

Summit Color Contrast Eyeliner (shade teal) – Holy smokes, this liner doesn’t budge or smear at all. Its soft, smooth no need to pull or tug the eye and incredibly pigmented. Need an oil based cleanser to get rid of it. Certainly will purchase black and brown shades of this pencil.

theBalm Read my Lips – Such a lovely peachy coral-ly shade, nicely pigmented, very moisturizing to the lips. Definitely purchasing a full size tube and curious to explore other shades.

Overall this month made up for last months boo-boo. I also love the classy floral print on sides of the box 🙂 Birchbox you made me a very happy gal for the short month of Feb.

Did you receive your boxes, what did you think of them?

Birchbox – November 2014

Before I say anything, I want to say out aloud I love this month’s box!

P1000908 P1000905

amika Dry Shampoo – yet to try but packaging is super cute!

Dr. Jart + Ceramidin Cream – this is a great dupe for Priori Barrier Repair Complex, very lightly fragranced and easily absorbed in skin. Considering a full size purchase.

Gilchrist & Soames – what…why Birchbox? This was one sample that seemed like a complete cop out with no effort. Mehhh but who doesnt use a body wash?! The scent of this body wash would be an acquired taste, not my cuppa!

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive – I was really looking forward to this one in particular, I have been curious about this product for a while. World knows I’m an AHA junkie so this product ticks all boxes ingredients wise. On application no tingling sensation on my skin, it felt tight as it dried but not uncomfortable at all. When I washed my face with cold water my skin was red which barely lasted for 3-4mins. Very curious to try the full strength one.

the Balm Cindy Lou-Manizer – little goes a very long way! Love using this as a highlighter when I’m wearing peachy toned blush.

Yet to devour the delicious sample of Almond Butter.

Did you Like or Love your box this month?

Happy Weekend my lovelies …..
