Also, as a quick aside, if you are a subscriber and didn't know this -- you can earn reward points for giving feedback on your box items. You get 10 points for every review, and when you get 100 points, you get a $10 credit to the Birchbox store! You also get 50 points for referring a friend (so use my link if you sign up, hint hint!! ;-) I recently was able to get a full-size item for free with my reward points! Here's what I chose:
|Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss, $20|
This is my all-time favorite product from Birchbox so far, probably. The sample that I got was actually in "Birchbox Pink," and while it wasn't my favorite color, I loved the lip gloss. The color was surprisingly potent for a gloss, and the shine was great and thick without it being too sticky. It's still lip gloss, not a stain or stick, so it didn't last forever, but I expect that anyway. What I liked best about it though is that it doesn't irritate my super-sensitive lips. For some reason, pretty much every lip gloss out there makes my lips peel! This didn't do that though.
This razor was also from my most recent box, and I loved it! It has some slick stuff on it that activates when it's wet, and I didn't even need to use shaving cream or gel. I plan to get some refills.
|Schick Hydro Silk Razor, $9.99|
I have also really enjoyed this lip balm. I use it every single night, and by morning, my lips are super moisturized and healed from any terrible lip gloss I've used that day. =P
|Pangea Organics Lip Balm, $12|
This stuff was pretty neat too. It's a color stain for either lips or cheeks. I like that it gives your cheeks color without really being discernible on your skin. Since it's a gel stain, it doesn't have the powdery look like blush does. I would think it would be really good for people who like a low-profile makeup look. It really just looks like your cheeks/lips are that color.
|theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac, $17|
I also loved this nail polish! Its name is very applicable -- it has a very gold foil look to it. It's a great product for doing nail effects or accent nails (I don't think I'd do all my nails with it!).
|Color Club® Foil Collection, $8|
I have gotten a lot of skin and hair care products as well, but those are a lot harder to get a feel for from just the sample size. And even though I have gotten samples in pretty much every box, I still haven't found a perfume I like. :-(
What about you? Do you get Birchbox? What have been your favorites?
