My Birchbox subscription continues making me happy. Even though I don’t necessarily love all the products received, I really enjoy testing them and picking my favorites. Well, today I am taking the opportunity to review my September box and tell you about my most and least favorite beauty products. Please let me know in the comments if you tried any of them before!
I have a very busy lifestyle and facial masks are among my favorite tools to get my looks in place. I use different kinds of masks (mostly those that exfoliate or moisturize my skin) at least twice a week. However, there are not that many masks around that you can apply on the sensitive under the eyes area. When I tried Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads, I was satisfied with the results as it worked exactly like a sheet Korean mask. When it comes to the experience, at fist this mask felt a little weird (like a jello?!), but I think I am okay with it as soon as my eyes look refreshed.
My friend Nina (you probably remember her delicious Russian granola recipe) recommended me Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint about a year ago, but I still didn’t have a chance to give it a try. Imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I found one in my Birchbox! As expected, it was a good one. The product absorbed the oil without making my hair less smooth than usually. Another good thing is that this dry shampoo didn’t leave any white marks on my hair. It is definitely a good one and I will be repurchasing it once I am done with a mini version.
Even though the color of ModelCo Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick – Kitty was too nude for my skin tone, I really liked it’s consistency. It is not too creamy or too matte which makes it a good weekday lip product. However, the quality of the packaging was not satisfying at all. After just a couple of days living in my to-go makeup bag, the tip of the lipstick broke and I had to throw it out (too bad I almost got used to it). Probably I’m not buying this lipstick again as I don’t want to invest money into such endurable product.
Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner by Parlor by Jeff Chastain were just okay. I didn’t notice that any of those hair products made any difference to how my hair look or feel. I am much more into the hairstyling line with the brand, especially detangelling spray that I used until it was empty. The shampoo smells pleasant, but I didn’t notice any extra volume effect added to my hair. The conditioner is just okay too.
This month’s box also came with Pop Beauty Portfolio Eyeshadow Set in Sugar Plum. However, you will not see any photos or review of this product as I gifted it to someone the moment I opened the box. I will keep you posted how this one lucky person liked the pallet.
