Birchbox Review

My husband got me a subscription to Birchbox for Christmas. I didn't even know that he knew about Birchbox, so it was an impressive gift!

Overall, I love receiving Birchbox. It's great to be able to try so many samples and see what I like or don't like before I spend a lot of money on products. Surprisingly, I really like the fragrances I've been getting. Usually, you get way too many fragrances, but Birchbox does it right. My favorite so far is Ageless.

So, here are my reviews for the products I received this month:

COOLA - SPF 30 Matte Tint BB Cream:  At first, I thought it was too greasy. But, it's not. It's very light and easy to apply. Some BB creams I've tried are thick, but this is lovely. Great for light coverage.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner: My first comment about this sample was, "This is a sample size?". It's seriously a full-sized eyeliner. I also consider myself very critical of liquid eyeliner. I've used it for years and years. I love a good cat eye and I always try to emulate the classics - Hepburn, Bardot, Loren. My favorite as of late has been Loreal Lineur Intense. It's a drugstore eyeliner, but still the best I've found for a great cat eye. The Eyeko is wonderful as well. Very easy to apply and great if you want a thicker cat eye. I would definitely buy this!

Klorane Dry Shampoo: I'm also very well-versed in the dry shampoo category! I have thick, coarse, curly hair. Dry shampoo is a must for me, because I only wash my hair every 4-5 days. I think this works great, but honestly no better or no worse that what I typically use.

Marcelle Make-up Remover: I really liked this quite a bit. It's not greasy and it removed my Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner perfectly! I typically use something a bit more moisturizing since I live in a cold, dry climate. But, I still liked this product.

Obliphica Professional Hair Serum: Again, another product I'm really familiar with is hair serum. Given my hair texture, I'm always looking for ways to control the frizz. I have been using Moroccan Oil religiously for a long time. I enjoyed this as well - it's a bit lighter and smelled fantastic. I don't think I'll deviate from my Moroccan Oil, but I'll definitely use this sample.
