My Birchbox came on Thursday, and it was the perfect kickoff for my staycation.
The theme of this month's box was "rainy days." When the box came, I thought to myself rainy days, I wish, but it did rain on Saturday night, and the desert got some much needed moisture!
Inside this month's box was...
Keims Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo
I LOVE this shampoo. It has a great smell and makes my hair feel super soft and clean. I plan to buy the full size for $9.50 when my sample runs out. I purchased two full size products from the Birchbox shop (that I discovered in previous boxes) and had a good experience. Using Birchbox points and a discount, I got 50% off my products + free shipping.
Up next was the Camille Beckman Body Butter--Morelia Monarch Scent
This body butter was nice, but I felt my sample was far too small to get a good feel for it. The full size is $15.00, so I'll probably just stick with my body shop body butter, which I'm happy with and is a better price (body shop has great sales).
Next was the Color Club Gala's Gems Collection in "Breakfast at..."
I had fun painting my fingers and toenails in this on Saturday, and I like the color. However, the polish is a little clumpy, which makes it harder to use than O.P.I brand.
Next, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
This is one of those products I didn't even know existed, and I was very skeptical. Basically, the idea is you use this brow gel in the direction that your eyebrows grow and it keeps them "in place." Is this even an issue I wondered? However, I used this and thought it did make a difference, especially because my right eyebrow has a cowlick in it and the hairs grow strangely. Still, I would never pay $22.00 for the full size, so I'm glad my sample was generous.
My "lifestyle extra" this month was a KIND Healthy Grain Bar Maple Seeds with Sea Salt
I haven't eaten it yet, but I've had KIND bars before, so I know I'll like it. I don't really like getting food in my Birchbox, but at least it is healthy food.
My bright idea for a rainy day tip directed me to some online yoga videos. I'll probably try one out.
Do you get Birchbox? What was in your box?
