Since summer is coming to an end very soon, I chose to use these green leaves as a photo backdrop because for the October post, these leaves may be brown. I was kinda excited when I opened my Birchbox this month. As I looked at the products, I was thinking, “Okayy.. I like the sample sizes, and these look like products that I may actually like” (compared to the first box I received). Let’s not waste anymore time and take a closer look at each product.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser– This is a creamy cleanser that can be used to remove makeup, dirt, and it also exfoliates. The natural ingredients include rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter, and eucalyptus oil. It came with a white muslin cloth (not pictured). Directions for use: massage the cream on your face, soak the muslin cloth in warm water, and remove in a gentle circular motions. The cleanser surely smells good, so I am looking forward to trying it. The cleanser comes in 3.3 fl. oz pump($25.00) or 6.7 fl. oz.($41.75) tube size.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk– This a dry shampoo, I assume it is for people that may be too busy to wash his/her hair, or may be bed-ridden. Although there are some moments when I don’t feel like washing my hair, I don’t think I would resort to a dry shampoo. This particular sample has a natural tint for brown and dark hair individuals. Directions for use: Spray evenly 10 inches away from hair, focusing at the roots. Leave on for 2 minutes and then brush hair thoroughly until the powder is removed. I received the 1.0 fl. oz size which retails for $10, and the 3.2 fl. oz. retails for $20.
Milk Makeup – Lip + Cheek – This is a lip and cheek stick from Milk Makeup in Perk Coral. All of the Milk products are cruelty free and the ingredients of avocado oil, mango butter, and peach nectar had my lips feeling very hydrated I must admit. The coral color wouldn’t be my first choice, but I do like these lip and cheek combos. This product comes in one size and retails for $24.00
Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water– This is a hydrating mist than can be used as a toner, refresher, and also can be used to set your makeup. The products claims to soften skin, soothe redness, and calm itching. It is formulated for sensitive and irritated skin. I am interested to try this product. I do have sensitive skin, so I am curious to see how or if I do react to his mist. I did spray a sample on my arm, so far my arm is still intact. This product can be purchased in three different sizes (1.76 fl. oz./5.29 fl. oz/10.58 fl. oz.) from $9.00-$18.50.
EVO Easy Tiger Smoothing Balm– This is a straightening balm for those men or women with coarse and thick hair. Thick hair, that is me. This products claims to condition, smooth, and protect your hair while you blow dry it. Directions for use: Apply to damp hair, style with a brush, and blow dry. The hold factor is low for it to be considered a “smoothing” balm, but I will give a try first before I have my verdict. The 1.1 fl. oz was the sample size sent, but you can purchase the full size for £19.95 or $26.47 USD.
