Greetings and Salutations (quick, what movie is that from??). Sorry for the recent high-aye-tus. Get it. HIGH…hiatus….five-style-high….forget it. I’m lame. I’ve been off with the hubby buying a lil’ piece of property. Also known as “buying our first home” which is both stressful and exhilarating at he same time. Thankfully, we just got our final approval and are now moving. In 2 weeks. Yeah. You might not hear too much from me until that beast is put to bed and we are comfy in our new digs.
Anyway, I’m way behind in my monthly awesome box of nifty delivery updates so I’m just gonna basically blast you with 3 back to back. We’ll start with my fiance’ the Birchbox.
Anything and everything you need to know about this phenomenally packaged beauty box subscription is found in some previous posts written by yours truly:
If you wanna get a monthly Birchbox subscription for only $10 per month, which would make you just as awesome as me and about 5 bazillion other lucky ladies, click here. It’s totally fun and totally worth it. Totally. Totes. Now on to the goodies from February and March:
Benta Berry (G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream): Haven’t tried this yet. Packaging is nifty. I like the font. Find it: here
Colorescience pro (glow and go Travel Puff): I’m in love we these lil’ travel packets. These went straight to the purse. Find it: here
Eye Rock (Designer Liner): These are so fun, although I’m waiting to rock em’ until I have a trendy event to attend..or Halloween. Whichever comes first. Find it: here
LA Fresh (Eco-Beauty Waterproof Makeup Remover): More fun packets! Love em’. In my pocket-book, my satchel and my knapsack. Just kidding. They are in my purse. Find it: here
The Lifestyle Extra for Feb. was a cute, heart-shaped nail file. They also threw in a Birchbox Digital Download for 6 free Green River Ordinance songs. I’ll be honest, I didn’t listen to the songs until, well now. I’m listening as I type. If you dig emo-esque indie rock, these guys are right up your ally. I’m “in-like” with them. Not quite love…but we could possibly get there with time.
Deborah Lippman (The Stripper to Go): Um. Yes. Double Yes to another awesome packet of “on the go” beauty must have’s for my purse. LOVE. Find it: here.
Miss Jessie’s Original (Quick Curls): So this was the most exciting to me because it was a really good size sample (I would consider it a full size if there wasn’t an actual “full-size” version). Sadly, it didn’t work too well in my hair. I mean, if I was goin’ for the dreadlocks look, I’d be irie-mon. I will give it another try again and maybe not use as much. I just personally thought it was sticky and the next morning when I woke up, I was a dread-head. poop. Find it: here.
One Love Organics (Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm): There’s that word I hate again. Balm. I f-ing HATE that word, but this product is absolutely scrumptious. Well, it’s not like I ate it or anything, but it’s so darn cute, I almost couldn’t resist from giving it a lick. It’s actually a 2-in-1 cleanser/moisturizer. I have no idea how to use it. Not sure if it’s for my face, foot, hot-bod or what. But, I’m most-def gonna give er’ a go and let you know what I think. Find it: here UPDATE: Here’s why I’m an idiot. I just happened to actually read the write-up that Birchbox provides at point of purchase for their products and there are the handy-dandy directions for how to apply and what it’s for. Ha! Who-da-thunk-it.
Peter Thomas Roth (Anti-aging Cleansing Gel): Unfortch, I won’t be using this product. Only because I have recently found the BEST, hands down, cleanser that I’ve ever used in my life. Don’t worry, I’m going to be totally bragging about it super-duper soon. In the meantime, I’ll give you a hint, just in case your feelin’ Inspector-gadgety: It’s in this post. For those of you that want to know more about the Peter Thomas Roth Cleanser, find it: here.
Last, but certainly not least…we have the Stila (Smoky Eye Card): Yippee! Who doesn’t like a good, smokey-eye. I know, that I do. I particularly like when cards like this make it into my birchy-box because it gives me a little tutorial, which is a huge plus, since I’m oh-so-very cosmetically challenged. I haven’t given this guy a try yet either – but I’m stoked to do so. Love the color names: Kitten (hee hee), Diamond lil and Ebony. Find it (the full-size trio that is): here.
Oh yes – the Lifestyle Extra in the March box, was Tea! I loved the way the box smelled when I opened it up, thanks to Kusmi Tea (Detox Tea), which is a detoxifying blend of mate (what the?), Green tea, and Lemongrass. yummy. Find it: here. The packaging is to die for cute!
P.S. I have been listening to the Green River Ordinance while typin’ away and went from “in-like” to “totally-diggin”. Hooray!
