What I Received:

1. Catherine Maladrino Perfume Style de Paris

Full Size Price: $96.00 (50 mL); Sample Price: $3.83 (2mL)
Full Size Price: $96.00 (50 mL); Sample Price: $3.83 (2mL)

The description of this scent is that it combines bright fruits and florals in an elegant vibe. Now I can’t pinpoint exactly what this smell is but it’s very refreshing. It doesn’t smell too fruity or florally – it’s just a nice clean, light scent and I’m soo in love with it.

2. Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

Full Size Price: $32.00 (8.6 mL); Sample Price: $14.88 (4mL)
Full Size Price: $32.00 (8.6 mL); Sample Price: $14.88 (4mL)

I’ve received this mascara before in my Topbox and I do remember really liking it. The colour was a nice intense black and the shape of the brush really made it easy to apply and get a good amount of volume and thickness. I’m happy that I’m seeing this again. It’s great when you get another sample of a sample you know you’ve liked before 🙂

3. Harvey Prince Hello Body Creme

Full Size Price: $26.00 (355mL); Sample Price: $1.10 (15mL)
Full Size Price: $26.00 (355mL); Sample Price: $1.10 (15mL)

I have been so curious about this product and smell. I’ve watched a bit of elevengorgeous on youtube and every time they receive a product from this brand they get really excited so I’m happy to finally receive something that I can try myself. Again, I love the clean and light smell of this product. I’m happy that I’ve received this in a creme so that I can wrap my skin in this awesome smell!

4.Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel for sensitive skin

Full Size Price: $42.00 (59.15mL); Sample Price: $5.54 (8mL)
Full Size Price: $42.00 (59.15mL); Sample Price: $5.54 (8mL)

Hurray for a peel designed for sensitive skin! This peel has fruit-derived acids to exfoliate dead skin.

Full Size Price: $23.00 (trio); Sample Price: $7.67 (one lipstick)
Full Size Price: $23.00 (trio); Sample Price: $7.67 (one lipstick)

This is such a nice bold colour! I really hope that this is as long-lasting as the product says so that I can wear it all day.

My Thoughts

Birchbox has been sending out some amazing boxes lately and this is just another one full of products that I can’t wait to try out! Total value of my box $33.03.
