Birch Box Brag

 **For some reason I can't get the button to work!!**

 I signed up for a subscription to Birchbox a few months back but have yet to be able to brag about it on my blog. So far I have enjoyed receiving the little packages of goodies in the mail. My first months box I was really excited about, and felt that I could use almost everything in it. This months box wasn't too bad either I just haven't had the chance to try out most of the products because I flew off on vacation a day or two after I collected it from my mailbox.
Here's what I got this month: (Descriptions taken from the card that was included in the box)

Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm
From the brand that brought BB creams to the U.S. this gold-standard formulation has mineral SPF 25 and a satiny, matte finish.

Curly Hair Solutions-RevUp Volumist
Flat, lifeless locks will never be in Vogue. Add this fast-acting conditioner to your shower caddy to give limp curls body and definition.

Juicy Couture-Couture La Lab
Roll out the red carpet for this new scent, a stunning mix of mandarin, red currant, lily, and orange blossom.

theBalm cosmetics-Mary-Lou Manizer
Play up your best features with this three in one highlighter, shadow, and all over shimmer.

A treat from Ghiradelli: You deserve a little sweetness. Try Ghiradelli's milk and caramel square solo or experiment-s'mores or baked into a cookie. Who says you can't riff on decadence?

I thought that this box was pretty good. I LOVE the shimmer from theBalm cosmetics. It's a great highlighting shadow, and I'm always looking for the perfect highlighter when doing eye makeup. I tried the beauty balm once and like the fact that it's tinted and doesn't feel heavy. Anytime a product contains SPF it gets points from this pale skinned red head :-) Jury is still out on whether or not I like the Juicy perfume. I own the original scent, but haven't liked the scents that have been created since. I probably won't use the RevUp! product all that often because I curl my hair like three times a year. I LOVE chocolate (and visited Ghiradelli square this weekend) so of course it was exciting to see a yummy chocolate and caramel square included in my box.

What was your favorite product from this month's box?

Thanks for a fun link up Tara, and Katie!

  Tomorrow entails my weekend recap: wine country and San Francisco!
