So, as you know, I am a huge fan of a monthly beauty subscription called, Birchbox! Each month I get a box filled with awesome products to try that are based on my beauty profile and their monthly theme. I try and do a reveal post here every month (missed last month’s due to complete and utter busyness! But don’t worry, I got ya covered for August!) My boxes come at the end of the month, usually the 2nd to last week or so. In anticipation of the last month of summer, and my Birchbox, here is a sneak peek video of what could be in my, or your, Birchbox this month!
Also- FYI I absolutely HAVE to tell you about an AWESOME hair masque I just got from Birchbox that I am head over heels with! It’s phenomenal! I’ll do … Read More »
I have semi-curly hair, technically it would be called 2B, where it’s more than waves, but not tight curls. When I was little, they were Shirley Temple-like curls, but as I have gotten older, they have softened up a bit. I have never been able to find a product for my hair that works well and enhances the curls without being too crunchy, stiff, sticky or causing frizz. Until this year.
So when it came time for me to replace my moisturizer, I decided to add a night version one to my routine as well. I absolutely LOVE the Korres line, and looked at their various overnight moisturizers, but landed on the Brightening Sleeping Facial. I have the Brightening Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum, and love that, so I thought that this overnight cream would be a great option. It’s paired with Wild Rose and Vitamin C and has a really rich and creamy texture (they call it a soufflé texture.) It comes in a glass container with a plastic twist on lid, which, like the Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel, is a bit heavy. It’s the same size, so they look really well next to each other on my shelf, but the colors are different enough that I won’t accidentally mix … Read More »
A year and a half ago I had the privilege of doing some work at the Vancouver Art Gallery for their annual gala, and as a gift I received this Korres product along with a few others. I had never heard of the brand before, and was curious about the product. I gave it a shot, and I instantly fell in love! I have been using this moisturizer daily ever since! I have also branched out and bought more of their products and continued to love each one!
So a few years ago, Pinterest took over the internet. Women everywhere were spending hours upon hours upon hours in front of their computer/iPad/iPhone screens pinning items onto a multitude of boards. Well, a brand new site is out for beta testing (I still am a bit shocked that I got on the Pinterest hype during the beta!) and it’s like Pinterest for shoppers but on crack. It’s called The Shelf.
I purchased this Moroccan Oil Repair Masque over a year ago when my hair was suffering from the intense damage I had done to it! I had stripped my hair in order to get rid of all the black hair dye. Well, it left my hair dry and brittle. I was desperate to get it’s life and bounce back. So- I made a huge step and got this masque!
This month’s Birchbox was an interesting one. I was excited about a few of the products, but some fell short. This month’s theme was, “Beauty Diaries,” which was all about your morning routine.
One of my favorite things to splurge on is perfume. I love when you walk by someone and you smell a little of their perfume or cologne. (I’m not talking about smelling them from across the building haha!) But just a subtle hint! I love to find new scents so that I can switch them up from day to day depending on my mood! Currently, these are some of my favorites!
I recently ordered myself this new hair masque by Gloss Moderne, the High Gloss Masque! I have been using the Moroccan Oil Repair masque for over a year, and decided I needed to add a different kind of a masque into the mix! And, well, who doesn’t love beautiful glossy hair?!
This month’s Birchbox was done in partnership with Women’s Health. Their focus was on, “Tiny Tweaks,” in your life/lifestyle to work towards healthy living! Which couldn’t be more perfectly fitting for what has been going on in my life this past month! Funny how things work like that! Well, without further a-do, let’s take a look at what was in the box this month!
