This weekend I also received my Birchbox samples, and I’ve had enough time to give them a try. This month’s box contained:
- (MALIN+GOETZ) bergamot body wash
- Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
- Supergoop!® Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream
- Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir
- Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-on
After the last couple of boxes, it was nice to see a box of samples that weren’t makeup, accessories, or snacks. 🙂
The (MALIN+GOETZ) body wash is lovely. I always forget how much I enjoy the scent of bergamot, and theirs has a great energy and zip to it, without being excessively heavy. The body wash has a nice texture to it, but it is definitely more on the cleansing side of the body wash spectrum, not the moisturizing side.
The Kiehl’s concentrate is nice enough. It definitely makes your skin feel a bit tighter upon application, and it’s a neutral scent. I know that I’m old enough I should care about lines on my face, but really? I don’t. So we’ll see if it’s a product I use with any regularity. 😉
And, universe, can we slow down a bit? I’m just starting to warm up to the idea of BB creams, and now we’ve taken it to the next level with CC creams? I call balderdash. It’s like always upping the ante with razors, and next they’ll have 13 blades in them! I’ve decided I’m going to be stubborn for a bit and not try the Supergoop cream until I’m good and ready. 😉 Or at least wait until the summer, since it has such a high SPF.
The Nexus Hair Elixir is similar to other silky leave-in hair treatments. Smooths flyaways, makes your hair a bit shiny and soft. The scent is exactly the same as all the other products. This hasn’t stood out as an exception product to me, yet, but we’ll see if I change my mind by the end of the vial.
The Simple eye revitalizer is the one product I haven’t tried yet because it’s designed to be used in the morning when your eyes are sometimes a bit dark and puffy. I’m sorry, Universe, but really… some mornings I don’t even have enough time to brush my hair, let alone worry about circles under my eyes. Besides, I work full-time and I have twin toddlers… at this point, eye circles are just another accessory to me. 🙂
Very glad that this month’s box was one of the better ones. Oh and, not pictured, but this month’s box was sponsored by Women’s Health magazine, and the box also included a voucher for a year’s subscription. Pretty cool!
