Unboxing: Birchbox Canada, February 2016

 Price: $10.00/month ($4.95 shipping), Number of Items: 5

Birchbox announced this month that it is putting it’s Canada operations on hold ūüė¶ I was pretty bummed that they won’t be shipping to Canada especially since I had just updated my profile. If they come back I will be sure to update everyone but this is my last Birchbox, for now.

On the bright side, I had accumulated quite a few points through the Birchbox store so I did do a little shopping (I will put up a little haul of the items I got in a future post)

Now to get into this month’s box, the theme for this month is “what’s the occasion” and focuses on creating your own not-quite-everyday look for a hot date or even just going out with your friends. 

What I Recieved: 

1.Arrow REVIVE Cooling Cheek Tint in Berry Flush   

Full Size: $24.00 (2.66 mL), Sample Size: $9.00 (1 mL)
 This is Birchbox’s newest brand that focuses on makeup for those who live active lifestyles. The products are designed to give coverage for the girl on the go and this tint has a cooling effect when applied to the cheek. I did swatch this for a photo but when I blended out the colour it was very faint on my hand. I think this would be nice for a little bit of colour on a nice summer day lounging on the beach (dreaming about the beach now with the cold weather outside)

2.ColorClub Mini Polish in That’s my Jam 

Full Size: $11.00 (14 mL), Sample Size: $5.50 (7 mL)
 This is such a nice red, I can’t wait to wear this on a warm day (I’m seriously dreaming of summer). This nail laquer is vegan and 100% cruelty-free. 

3.Livingproof Restore Mask Treatment 

Full Size: $53.00 (227 mL), Sample Size: $6.53 (28 mL)
 I have a few hair masks now but I’m happy to have one from Living proof because I’ve seen this brand around and was curious about how well it will work for me. Now this claims to make hair 20x stronger – we will see if it works. 

4.Naobay HydraPlus Cream

Full Size: $29.60 (50 mL), Sample Price $17.76 (30 mL)
 I actually am VERY happy that I got this because my skin has become so dry and itchy this winter. HydraPlus cream is meant to boosts moisture levels of the skin with the use of sage extract, olive oil, aloe Vera and chamomile. Yes, all those ingredients have produced a super delicious smelling moisturizer!

5.Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar – Black Metal Dahlia  This is a highly pigmented lip gloss is a pretty red with metallic flecks. Talk about not-quite-everyday looks, this colour is super intense that I would definately reserve it for a night out. You only need the smallest amount to coat you lips and you need to be very careful since this is very opaque. 

My Thoughts

This box was super cute for February and went really well with the theme of not-so-everyday. I’m really excited about the cheek tint and the lip tar since these items are different from what I usually receive. Total value of my box is $51.30.

Unboxing: Birchbox, January 2016

 

Price: $10.00/month ($4.95 shipping), Number of Items: 5
Birchbox is a monthly subscribtion box that introduces customers to different beauty items. You also collect 1 point for each dollar spent and every 100 points gets you $10 to use towards products in the Birchbox online store. They also offer a sample choice to switch out one of your samples with.

This month is about making your own theme and starting off 2016 how you want to. The box reads “2016: The Year of ____” and you are given a sticker sheet with different positive nouns such as “strength”, “joy”, and “creativity” that you are supposed to place over the blank. 

What I Received

1.Dr.Jart+ Water Fuse Water-Full Hydrogen Mask

Full Size: $25.00 (one sheet), this is a full size item
 
This sheet mask is infused with hyaluronic acid and is meant to re-hydrate the skin. Supposedly, you will see results after one use. Other active ingredients include olive leaf extract and cranberry fruit extract. With the cold and dry weather here, anything that is hydrating to my skin is welcomed.

2.Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect

Full Size: $36.00 (200 mL), Sample Price: $5.40 (30mL)

This is a leave in-conditioner is made for all hair types. You spray it on to towel-dry hair and it helps to detangle it, as well as preserving colour and providing UV protection. Since I have really long hair, I find that it does tend to get more tangled lately so I will definitely give this a try and see if it helps. I like leave in conditioners, but I’m not really into this brand. I’ve received a few products now through Birchbox and the last shampoo I tried didn’t really do much for me.

3.TONYMOLY Delight Tony Tint 

Full Size: $6.00 (8.3 mL), Sample Price: $3.60 (5 mL)
 This red tint is very similar to Benefit’s Benetint in liquidity and and in colour. What I like about this one is how quickly it dries on the lips and how bold the colour is. I also appreciate the adorable packaging, I like this applicator wand and the black cap is in the shape of a heart. 

4.Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Hightlighter 

Full Size: $40.00 (30 mL), Sample Price: $6.67 (5 mL)
 Whenever I’m on the the Birchbox website I always look and read about these product so I was very excited to have finally received a sample in my box. This illuminating cream has pretty gold specks that I think would look really nice in the summer with a slightly bronzed skin. 

5.Whish, Three Whishes Body Butter

 
I really like the light smell of lavender. I know that for some people lavender can be too strong but I think even they might like this because there is a very light, clean smell compared to a strong earthy smell (online you can chose between three different scents). This is designed to moisturize, firm and purify. 

My Thoughts

I am pretty happy with a lot of the products in this box because I really feel they will be good for the winter months. However, I am getting tired of all the moisturizers. I’m going to update my profile and see if that switches up the box for next month. Total value of this box is $44.48.

Birchbox is a monthly subscribtion box that introduces customers to different makeup, skin care and hair care lines. You also collect a point for each dollar spent on the site, and every 100 points gets you $10 to use towards products. This month, Birchbox introduced sample choice, where you can choose one sample from the options in that month and the rest of the samples will be surprises. There was also an option to swap out the surprise box with one that was curated by Tati Westbrook of GlamLifeGuru – I decided to keep my box a surprise but did choose a sample choice which was one of the LOC shadow sticks.

This month’s theme is feeling fancy and indulging in the things you love. The whole concept is to make time to pamper yourself in between hectic holidays.

What I Received:

1.Beauty Protector, Protect & Oil

DSC_0042

This oil is designed to defend hair against UV rays, heat and breakage. I have been receiving a lot of hair oils lately but it smells really lovely and I can always use it. I also like that I received two of these.

2. Briogeo, Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Blow Cry Spray

Full Size Price: $18.00 (150mL), Sample Price: $3.53 (29mL)
Full Size Price: $18.00 (150mL), Sample Price: $3.53 (29mL)

You spray this before you blow dry your hair to enhance its thickness and encourage natural, healthy growth over time. I am so excited to have received this to hopefully bring some life back to my hair.

3. Embryolisse, Lait-Creme Concentre

Full Size Price: $28.00 (75mL), Sample Size Price: $1.87 (5mL)
Full Size Price: $28.00 (75mL), Sample Size Price: $1.87 (5mL)

I am excited to try this moisturizer because it heals dryness and preps skin for your daily routine. Reading up on this on Sephora that this combination of shea butter and emollient oils reconstitutes, rejuvenates, and repairs the skin for a healthy-looking complexion. It also had a lot of pretty good reviews.

4. Birchbox Exclusive, LOC, One and Done Shadow Stick – On Point

Full Size Price: $10.00 (15mL), this is a full size item
Full Size Price: $10.00 (15mL), this is a full size item

This was the item that I swaped for when ordering by box. I figured it would be nice to try since it is an exclusize item and the colours looked pretty cool. I really like this shadow stick, the colour is so creamy and shimmery.

5. Temple Spa, La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel

Full Size Price: $18.00 (148mL), Sample Size Price: $3.02 (24mL)
Full Size Price: $18.00 (148mL), Sample Size Price: $3.02 (24mL)

This last item really falls inline with the theme since it’s a bath gel. This is infused with mint, peppermint and basil to help soothe stress while it softens and smooths the skin. The smell is actually pretty light, I like the subtle mint and basil, a very spa-like scent.

My Thoughts

I’m very happy with my items this month. The box I feel is well rounded, I received something for my hair, skin and makeup. The total value of box is $21.66.

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 ūüôā

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)

This month Birchbox celebrates 5 years. This month’s box read “PSST – you’re beautiful” and I believe that the theme this month is feeling beautiful inside and out.

What I Received

Full Size Price: $26.00 (30mL), Sample Price: $6.93 (8mL)
Full Size Price: $26.00 (30mL), Sample Price: $6.93 (8mL)

As the product name states this is an under eye cream. I have issues with dark circles and fine lines so I’m looking forward to using this :). I really also like that it is 100% natural and vegan, it’s nice to see that all the ingredients are natural.

2.Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner in Colbalt

DSC_0177
Full Size Price: $21.00 (1mL), this is a full size product

I really like the pigmentation of this blue and how nicely it came on when I swatched it on my hand. This liner is pretty precise so I’ll be able to create a really pretty winged liner with it.

3.Daviness OI/ All in One Milk

DSC_0169
Full Size Price: $33.00 (135mL), Sample Price: $12.22 (50mL)

This is a leave-in treatment to add volume, shine, heat protection and it detangles. I love hair treatments because I am struggling with really dry and damaged hair. I am really excited to try this out. It has this sweet perfume smell that I really like in my hair. I put one pump through my hair and it instantly felt softer.

4.Raw Spirit Fragrances in Wild Fire

Full Size Price: $113 (30mL), Sample Price: $3.77 (1mL)
Full Size Price: $113 (30mL), Sample Price: $3.77 (1mL)

This perfume sample has a super strong woody aroma, and is very musky. This scent is supposed to be unisex, but for me it smells more masculine than I would like on myself. I don’t think I will be using this at all, I really don’t like this smell.

5.Tocca Esfoliante da Corpo, in Giulietta

Full Size Price: 38.00 (201mL), Sample Price: $5.67 (30mL)
Full Size Price: 38.00 (201mL), Sample Price: $5.67 (30mL)

This exfoliant is sugar-based. I love body scrubs! So happy I received one in my box this month. It has a super amazing smell as well. The scent is tulip and green apple which is actually a really wonderful combination.

Bonus! Daviness OI Shampoo and Conditioner

Full Size Price: Shampoo $31.00 (280mL) - Conditioner $37.50 (250mL), Sample Price: Shampoo $1.33 (12mL) - Conditioner $1.80 (12mL)
Full Size Price: Shampoo $31.00 (280mL) – Conditioner $37.50 (250mL), Sample Price: Shampoo $1.33 (12mL) – Conditioner $1.80 (12mL)

I really like that Birchbox included a matching shampoo and conditioner to the Daviness All in One Milk that way I can try them all out together to see how well it all works.

My Thoughts

I’m very happy with this box. It’s full of products that I feel I really need which is awesome, it’s like Birchbox read my mind with these products. I also like receiving bonus products in my box. The only item I’m not excited about is the perfume. Total Value of my box is $52.72.

What did you think of Birchbox this month?

This month’s theme is soak it up and the products chosen are designed to help hold on to the last bits of summer before it’s over.

1. Key West Aloe Save a Tan

DSC_0144

This has 80% pure aloe which is great to use after spending a day in the sun. Lately the weather has been really warm and sunny so this will help me ward off the heat and treat any sunburns. I’m really excited about this product because it smells incredible and I really think I will get some good use out of it. Full Size Price: $16.00 (177mL), Sample Price: $2.70 (30mL)

2. LAQA & Co Cheeky Lip Stain in Humble Brag

DSC_0140

Swatching this product on my hand I love the colour. It’s a cute raspberry red that I think will look good on both cheeks and lips. The only thing is that the colour went away really quickly on my hand but hopefully it lasts longer on my lips or cheeks. Full Size Price: $36.00 (set of three), Sample Price: $12.00 (one stick)

3. Number 4 Blow Dry lotion

DSC_0138

I’ve received a shampoo/body wash sample from this brand and I really like it, so I’m really glad to see them again in my box. This time I recieved a leave-in treatment. This claims to tame frizz and protect your hair from the heat of your styling tools. I have frizzy hair so I’m always using up whatever treatment product I get so I’m always happy to recieve more. Full Size Price: $36.00 (150ml), Sample Price: $7.20 (30mL)

4. Real Chemistry Luminous 3-minute Peel

DSC_0146

This peel isn’t a mask, but more like a facial scrub which I really like. It’s a new concept for me because as you massage this on your face it starts to get grainy as the product picks up the dead skin. Afterwards you rinse your face and you’re left with really smooth and refreshed skin. I am beyond excited to try this! Full Size Price: $58.00 (50mL), Sample Price: $5.80 (5mL)

5. St. Tropez Gradual Tan in Shower

DSC_0136

This self-tanner has a buildable colour that you can easily do in the shower. I actually tried this right away once I recieved it because I really want to look like I’ve built a nice tan this summer. It was simple to use and the smell was very clean. Full Size Price: $31.00 (200mL), Sample Price: $7.75 (50mL)

My Thoughts

This is one of the best boxes I’ve received from Birchbox, or any box really. I can’t wait to use every single product and I think they are so appropriate for the summer and fall in line with the theme perfectly. Total value of my samples are $35.45.

This month Birchbox teamed up with Best Health to create boxes centered around having a healthy summer.

What I Received:

1. Bain De Terre Hair Oil

DSC_0102

This tiny sample has argan oil and passion flower in the formula designed to aid coloured hair in styling. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve gone more blonde this summer so I love that this will help protect my¬†hair as I put¬†it through the torture of curling, straightening and¬†direct sun exposure.¬†Full Size¬†Price $14.65 (1.7oz), Sample Price $2.15 (0.25oz)

2. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara

DSC_0103

OMG! I love this mascara, I own the large size as well as have about 3 samples! I can never get enough of this. I’m sure many of you have tried it and already know how you feel about it. I’m glad to get another sample because I really like this formula and like that I can carry this around when I travel or as a back up whenever my large size runs out.¬†Full Size¬†Price $29.00 (0.3oz), Sample Price $9.67 (0.1oz)

3. Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo

DSC_0092

So again I receive a shampoo without the matching conditioner, which is a bummer. BUT! I am really excited to try this because it will help protect my coloured hair. It smells a like herbal essences shampoo. Full Size Price $28.00 (16oz), Sample Price $3.50 (2oz)

4. Gillchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion

DSC_0095

This lotion is full of marine extracts,¬†I like that it dried really quickly and made my skin feel smooth and moisturized afterwards. It smells almost like a green tea, I can’t put my finger on it exactly but the smell is pretty faint. Full Size Price $18.00 (8oz), Sample Price $3.04 (1.35oz)

5. Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

DSC_0093

I received this exact sample in Ipsy this month, which isn’t so terrible. This has little crystals that mimic microdermabrasion to give a deep clean.¬†I’m really excited to try it. Full Size Price $34.00 (120 g), Sample Price $5.67 (20 g)

My Thoughts

This box is in-line with the theme of having a healthy summer because all the products are geared towards conditioning your skin and hair. Total Value of my samples; $45.24.

Unboxing: Birchbox Canada, June 2015

Birchbox Open

Price: $10.00/month ($4.95 shipping),  Number of Items: 5

I was really excited to receive my birchbox today, I was expecting it to come later this week because shipping to Canada usually takes time.

With Birchbox, you collect a point for each dollar spent on the site, and every 100 points gets you $10 to use towards products.

This month’s theme is “say yes to adventure”, it contains a collection of items that inspire exploration and going out to do new things and the box is full of items you can take along with you.

What I Received:

1. Coastal Scents: Revealed 3 Eyeshadow Quad

Immediately I know I can use 3 of the 4 colours, the bright red shadow is definately not for me. I’ve purchased coastal scents shadows before so I know the pigments are great here. Full Size: $24.00 (20 shadows), Sample: $2.40¬†(the shadows are smaller than the palette, I’m assuming it’s 1/10th the size of the full product)

2.Naobay Oxgenating Cream Moisturizer

Naobay

This cream has the yummiest smell, like a lemon tart!!!! (strange bc the ingredients are rosehip and almond, not lemon). Just smelling it now makes me hungry…The cream is 98% natural and good for all skin types. I’ve been putting this on my hand and it moisturizes so well. The description suggests also using this as a makeup base…good idea, I think I will ūüôā Full Size: $45.00 (50mL), Sample $18.00 (20mL)

3.Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo

Number 4

I really don’t like receiving a shampoo without the matching conditioner, so I was a bit disappointed when I saw only this in my box. How am I supposed to go on an adventure if my hair is super dry! haha. I think the image of the elephant is super cute and it smells pretty good. It is supposed to give you a deep clean which I really like, and you can use this as a body wash. Full Size: $36.00 (8.5oz) , Sample Size: $4.24 (1oz)

4.PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturing Sea Salt Spray

parlor

I’m not sure what to make of this product. I do like the wavy look, but I’ve used a sea salt spray before and it made my hair look frizzy (my hair is naturally dry and curly/wavy) Not sure I’ll get much use out of this. I may try it a few times and see how I feel because I do like its delicious green apple smell. Full Size: $27.00 (147mL), Sample Size: $5.51(30mL)

5.Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Skyn Iceland

I’m pretty excited about¬†this product.¬†I think this is supposed to be the “relaxing day after all the adventure” product because it helps firm and de-puff the eyes. I don’t have issues with either of those, but a cooling gel after a stressful day is always well received by me. Plus it’ll make at home spa day even more luxurious. Full Size: $33.00 (pack of 8), Sample Size: $4.13 (1 pack)

6.BONUS! Emi-Jay Hair Tie

Emi-Jay

I think this bonus is very cute! I love these style hair ties and since I refuse to cut my long hair, it will be in good use this summer. Set of 5: $13.00, One Tie: $2.60

My Thoughts

The Total Price of all my samples is $36.88. I’m really excited to try all these products. I am most excited about Noabay moisturizer.

How did you like your Birchbox this month? Is there a Subscription box you like receiving?

Unboxing: Birchbox Canada, May 2015

Price: $10.00/month ($4.95 shipping),  Number of Items: 5

This¬†is my second box from Birchbox Canada and I’ll start off by saying that I’m pretty pleased with most items.

Birchbox is a monthly subscribtion box that introduces customers to different makeup, skin care and hair care lines. What is nice about Birchbox is that you collect a point for each dollar spent on the site, and every 100 points gets you $10 to use towards products.

The theme this month was elevating the everyday curated with Emily Schuman, writer of Cupcakes and Cashmere at Home

Here’s what I got:

20150519_192204_resized

Dr. Lipp

Original Nipple Balm for Lips (yes, you read it right, nipple balm!) The formula was orignated for nursing moms but it’s ultra hydrating and the description encourages you to use it for your¬†lips, cuticles and dry skin. I’m pretty excited to try this.

Full-size Price $14.50 (15 mL), Sample Price $2.90 (3 mL)

20150519_192325_resizedJuice Beauty

This moisturizer uses fruit stem cells to firm and smooth fine lines. I’m really excited to use this product, I like that it’s organic and it has this awesome smell like a key lime pie!!

Full-size Price $79.00 (60 mL), Sample Price $10.27 (7.8 mL)

20150519_192433_resizedNot Soap, Radio

This body wash claims to kick up pheromones with ginseng. I’m sure just smelling clean will make anyone feel a bit more sexy but the description is pretty cute “The stuff that Cupid dips his arrows in.” It actually smells a bit like raspberries which I don’t really care for but it’s a nice weekend travel size so I’ll keep it for when I’m going away.

Full-size Price $20.00 (402.5 mL), Sample Price $2.19 (44 mL)

20150519_192245_resizedW3LL People

So this all natural mascara lengthens and lifts lashes without the use of chemicals or dyes. What this mascara actually did was invade my nose with the nasty smell of plastic. I’m not sure if I’ll use this because it just smells strange, maybe it’s old or maybe because it’s so natural they didn’t put in any perfumes. If you got this and experienced the same thing, let me know.

Full-size Price $27 (.23 oz), Sample Price ???? (there was no product volume listed – I’ll assume it’s half the full size) so…$13.50 approx.

20150519_192351_resizedWhish

I was extremely excited about this product when I read it was a shave cream. I don’t think I’ve ever received a shave cream in any beauty box I’ve ever ordered which, come to think of it, is a real shame because I’ll happily accept them. This one has shea butter so it’ll moisturize really well and claims to prevent ingrown hairs! This is another great size product for a weekend getaway!

Full-size Price $22 (150 mL), Sample Price $3.23 (22 mL) 

Total Sample Price is $32.09 (assuming I’m correct on the size of the mascara). This month I got double my box’s worth in products which is awesome. The products tie well with the theme, it feels like a box you can pamper yourself with.¬†I can see myself using almost every product, and all are so well timed because I can definitely use them in the summer.
