Birchbox January 2013

I decided to sit on this post for a little over a week, just so I would have a chance to actually try out some of the products before talking about them. And I’m so glad that I did, because I fell in love with a few things that I honestly didn’t think that I would even like!

Birchbox Jan 2013 - Box 17

Birchbox Jan 2013 – Box 17

Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Thickening & Strengthening Serum – I have tried Oscar Blandi products when they’ve come in a Birchbox in the past, and I wasn’t really sold on their products…until I tried this one. I will be buying a full-sized bottle of this stuff, and that’s all that I have to say about that!

Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray – See the above review and add a “good gracious!” The combination of both products leaves my hair manageable, a little silkier, and my hair also doesn’t tangle as easily either. The dry heat protectant is interesting, because you almost don’t feel like you’re using a heat protectant. They’re usually wet and in a spray bottle, not in what resembles a can of hairspray! I will be buying the full-sized version of this product as well.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – I normally have issues with liquid eyeliner (shaky hands!) so I use pencil or gel instead, but I actually had no problems with this one. Color me extra surprised! The description says that it is user-friendly, and I would have to agree.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy – I actually haven’t smelled this one yet, as I’m not really a fan of Juicy Couture perfumes on me, but it will go in the emergency sample fragrance container anyway. You never know.

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre 24-Hour Miracle Cream – Yay for French moisturizers, right? It says that it “heals dryness” and can be used as a primer. I really like this one. It is not a heavy cream, but I still prefer to use it at night. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is smooth and glowing! If I use it during the day, it’s only because it’s a day where I felt like using foundation.

All in all, I’d have to say that I really liked this box! But then again, I usually do. šŸ™‚
