Birchbox: March 2016

April is already half way over. Summer is just around the corner! Ah!
I’ve had a full month to test out my last Birchbox…so let’s dive in and review.
I’m always hesitant with shadow crayons – they have a tendency to crease on me or lack in staying power, but this is one of the exceptions! I also love the ease of application. It can be used as a thick liner or a full shadow. The color is called “Aspen Pine” and is a beautiful deep green.

Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads
Okay…I’m still on the fence about these eye pads. The concept is great – apply, let it sit, then peel off to reveal hydrated skin. There was only one use in my birchbox, so it’s a far cry to say that it worked. It felt nice, but I just don’t think I would purchase due to price and the fact that I could just use a thick eye cream.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser
This is one product I was really happy to see in the box. I haven’t tried many Kiehl’s products before, but after using this cleanser for a few weeks I would definitely try others from this line. It only takes a little, but works great!

Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Oil
Not for oily skin. No! I also don’t understand the difference in a “primer oil” and a “face oil” that moisturizes. I gave it a go, despite my better judgement, and mid-day was an oily mess. If you have dry skin this could be great. If you’re like me with combo/oily skin I don’t recommend.

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray
I feel like sea salt sprays are full of empty promises most of the time. There have been very few to work on my fine hair. Add this to the list. It just didn’t work for me.

Two good products out of five is still a win! Want to get your own Birchbox each month? Sign up here!
