I am deep in the weeds researching perms, I really think that this is the time that I am going to do it. There are a few salons in my area that offer a natural perm, which I think I may opt for. I hope this isn’t one of those things though where the natural option costs twice as much (it does) but doesn’t actually work. I have run into this before, I want to give these products a try because they are better for me but then they don’t work. Looking at you wart remover – I had a wart, on my hand and I used this holistic salve for months and it did nothing. I finally had to go to the doctor and have it frozen off, although – thinking on it now, that took a long time too. Why am I telling this story? July’s Birchbox has arrived and I am still not loving this subscription – I received yet another amika product and a repeat of air repair. This box is all about easy, summer beauty routines and here is a round up of the samples that I received:
air repair complexion Boosting Moisturuzer – We already know that I hate this but I gave the last sample to a gal pal and she really liked it, lucky her – she gets a refill 😀 This is supposed to be good for all skin types and a cure for fatigued skin.
amika Un.Done Texture Spray – I just have not liked anything that I have tried from this brand, my hair doesn’t love it. This is a repeat brand for Birchbox, I think that I have received a product from them in every box.
Beautaniq Beauty – I have not heard of this brand, apparently this product can be used for lip and cheek tint. This is very pink, the formula is pretty fluffy for a serum but you get a lot of pigmentation. I will definitely give this a whirl – how cute is the tube?
LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Nite Owl – This a deep purple, cream shadow pencil. It swatched really nice, I can’t wait to see what kind of looks I can get with this. There are quite a few shades, I think that this line is a Tati and Birchbox collab – I don’t know why this didn’t make a bigger splash.
Marcelle Micellar Gel Eye Makeup Remover – I am a big fan of micellar waters, I am interested to see what this one can do and if I like it as much.
That’s it for my box – it was decent, I am keeping 3/5 items which isn’t too shabby! I think that I am most excited for the micellar gel and the LOC eye-shadow.
Thanks for stopping by <3
