Birchbox - Must or Bust
The day I receive my Birchbox each month is quite possibly my favorite day of the month. If you're not familiar with this service, it's a monthly subscription and for $10/month you receive a little pink box once a month with great beauty samples (sometimes full size) to try. Last week I received my May Birchbox and below is a list of the products I received and my personal review for each of them.
Pilot Acrobat Pen - really?? really!? I mean, this pen writes well but I think this was a filler. In fact I know it was a filler since I can't even find the link to buy it on the birchbox website. BUST.
Marvis Toothpaste - I've never been too picky about toothpaste (except the time it was irritating my skin) but this has a nice fresh taste and made my teeth feel great after brushing with it. If you're the kind of person who prefers luxury toothpaste then this is a must otherwise $10.50 for a tube of toothpaste is a BUST.
Coola Classic SPF 30 Moisturizer for Face - This stuff is very lightweight and smells like cucumbers (or better.) As a bonus it's made with 70% certified organic ingredients. I'm going to finish using my skinceuticals sunscreen and then I MUST buy this.
Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner - I received the liner in black and it's fantastic. It goes on smooth and bold and has ridiculous staying power so you have to work quickly if you need to fix any mistakes - This is definitely a MUST especially given its $11.00 price tag.
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - Birchbox must have known that I've been on the hunt for a decent dry shampoo. I've tried out at least a dozen in the past year...and I'll be buying this one! It has a mild smell that is unoffensive and did not make my hair feel sticky or dirty - just clean. Thank you birchbox! ... this is a MUST.
