january birchbox review

I forgot to do December's review. There wasn't a lot in there that I absolutely adored (except for the Kate Spade Twirl fragrance, which smells like heaven). So I decided not to review. January, on the other hand, featured a few real gems.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy | It's described as a scent to bring out your inner girly girl. Honestly, I don't really enjoy it as much as I did the Kate Spade one.

ORIGINS Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash | I'm usually dissuaded from trying new face washes because I have sensitive skin. But I've used ORIGINS products in the past, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. I'm so glad I did. I have combination skin, full of dry patches and oily spots, so this face wash was perfect. It gives me the right amount of moisture without clogging my pores. Thank. Goodness.

stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner | I'm very minimal on my makeup, so I only put on eyeliner when I'm going out at night. And that's only if I'm feeling extra motivated. I'm extraordinarily lazy. It's a talent. But this stuff went on smooth and lasted a long time. I liked the color (I got Peacock, a nice blue that nicely complements brown eyes), and that it didn't end up half way down my face by the end of the night (which included dancing!).

VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything: Face-Hand Body Lotion | In the winter, my skin gets grossly dry. Between going in and out of warm buildings into freezing air doesn't really keep my hands too smooth. It's nice and thick, and you can use it on your face too. I haven't done that yet, but I'm sure it definitely helps dry skin there too.

Larabar Mini Bar | These things are delicious. End of story.

Thinking of signing up for Birchbox? I say give it a shot for a month. At $10 a month, it's worth it to at least try. Sometimes you get surprised and turned on to an awesome new product.
