Ughhh~ Did you guys see that Google Reader is retiring?? WTF! I’m so sad and angry at the same time. Google Reader was my primary source and it was so convient because I’m always on my gmail. It looks like I will be switching over to bloglovin’ now. What do you guys normally use to follow other blogs? Please let me know as I am very interested in finding the *best* new way to keep up with all of your blogs that I follow!!
It’s that time again for my monthly BirchBox Mini-Giveaway Series blog post. If you don’t know what I’m talking about or you missed out on last months post, you can find out more about this ongoing series here.
Let’s have a closer look at all of the products that came in Januarys’s BirchBox!!
This was my second BirchBox that I’ve ever received. I was a little bit disappointed by this particular box. I felt like there wasn’t really that much in the box that caught my heart.
Also at the same time, I sort of felt bad that my mini-giveaway for this month might not be worth too much to you guys. So I decided to only keep one item for myself and give the rest away.
The box came with this interesting poster print that you see above. It shows the “best products of the year.” On the back side, there’s also an interesting collection of goals that you can use for 2013. I thought it was an interesting read overall.
Anyways, onto the products!
Kérastase Elixir Ultime (Full-size $54)
Add this nourishing oil to your hair regimen to hydrate, smooth, and sleekify your strands.
I always like hair products to make your ends look and feel healthier. Just run this through the ends of your hair to make it smoother. Currently I have about half a dozen of hair products that do just this. I’m planning on writing a review for all of them coming up sometime next month. This particular product won’t be on my list since I’m giving this one away, but I’m sure that this product will do a great job.
Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique – Protect (Full-size $42)
Work this leave-in cream through towel-dried hair to repair damage from chemical processing and protect strands from heat styling.
If you don’t know Kérastase, it is l’Oréal’s high end hair product line. It’s supposed to be comparable to other well known hair products and has received good reviews. I think my company did some advertising for them too, lol. Btw, leave-in creams are the best! I don’t think my hair can live without it… especially since its been over dyed.
DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer (Full-size $85)
This high-tech moisturizing serum fills in pores and wrinkles for instantly smoother skin, while peptides and vitamins provide long-term anti-aging benefits.
Eek, so I actually wanted so much to keep this product to try for myself. But I decided to part from it and let you guys have a go. Lol, a big part of why I wanted to keep it was because the full size is so expensive! I figured, it must be good some how? Also, I’ve been writing a lot this week about pores.. But maybe it’s a good product to giveaway then to keep going with all of my pore related posts.
theBalm cosmetics Hot Mama (Full-size $20)
How cute is this two-in-one blush and highlighter? The universally flattering pigment is laced with golden shimmer to warm up your complexion.
This product is quite nice. The packaging is kinda cute too. It’s cheap and reminds me of candy for some reason. I’m not sure how this would be used as a highlighter because it’s a little dark in my opinion for highlighting. But it does make for really cute blush color! I love it, but yea~ It’s a little bit small for a sample This is the product that I decided to keep for myself because I accidentally swatched it on myself right when I saw it, haha.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy (Full-size $25-90)
Juicy’s charming scent will bring out your inner girly girl. Wild berries flirt with mandarin and soft floral notes for a fragrance that’s fun and happy.
I’m sorry, I sprayed this perfume sample so that I could smell it. It smells really nice and fruity! Quite enjoyable. My boyfriend bought me perfume for valentines day though, so I have to wear the scent that he gave me I’m sure that one of you will really enjoy this scent though! I love these little perfume samples because they are AWESOME for on the go and keeping in your purse!!
Alright, now onto the giveaway portion of this post!! YAY!
