Today was a rough day. My only daughter...only child....started kindergarten today. I keep looking at her and thinking she looks bigger than she did yesterday. I can't believe she is in kindergarten. It warms and breaks my heart all at the same time. After dropping her off and watching her at the door for 20 minutes this morning I retreated to my car, and the minute I closed the car door the tears came. I drove home crying. It was hard. When I got home I decided to check the mail, and a surprise awaited me! It was just the pick me up I needed. It couldn't have came at a better time. So what was waiting for me in the mail box?
The little pink box called Birchbox that is. Birchbox is a program that for $10 a month they send you this cute little box filled with about 4 or 5 beauty product samples, sometimes they even send full size products. A lot of the full size products retail for just under or even over $10 which makes this program really worth it. Another positive to this is that you can try out all kinds of products to see if you like them before shelling out a lot of money on some of them. The site also sells the full size of the products that they send out each month. This month was the first box that I received. I am very excited about a couple of the products in here, and one I have used before and talked about in my last post.
So the Products I got are:
June Jacobs Papaya purifying enzyme masque .5 oz Retails for $64 for 3.7 oz (yikes!)
Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel .6 oz retails for $16 for 6 oz
Not sure if I will get much use of this since there is no heat or humidity here and my hair isn't frizzy.
Smashbox photo primer .25oz Retails for $36 for 1 oz
I think this is a great primer, but there are cheaper alternatives. See previous blog post.
The Cool Fix Targeted Gel lotion 1 oz Retails for $11 for 2 oz
This claims to treat ingrown hairs, razor bumps, razor burn, and redness
It also came with one of these hair ties but I didn't take a picture. I really like the idea of these hair ties though! They also aren't breakable because they tie together at the end which I think is awesome because I am always stretching out and breaking my hair ties!
Out of all these products I am most excited to try the June Jacobs mask and The cool fix targeted gel lotion. I will let you all know how I feel about these products after I have used them!
