October Birchbox

The October Birchbox was full of Birchbox’s favorite products…award winners, celeb faves & up-and-comer products! Here’s what I got:

12 Benefits™ Instant Healthy Hair Treatment: A potent combination of natural lipids and UV absorbers work together to reverse the damage caused by hair dyes, heat styling, and environmental aggressors. My thoughts: I am a diehard Infusium23 user but this spray has so many other benefits that I MAY have to switch it up!!!

Supergoop!® City Sunscreen Serum: Supergoop!®’s unique Hydrovotin 24 complex works with the skin’s own moisture mechanisms to increase hydration levels, while vitamins E and B5 heal past damage. A chemical sunscreen duo absorbs both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause sunburn. My thoughts: I like this sunscreen but mostly I love having trial sizes to keep in my purse & car at all times!

Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask: Every Karuna Mask contains Beauty Boost, a special blend of natural antioxidants that nourishes all skin types. And since the cloth is also all-natural, your pores will absorb up to 50 percent more moisture than from synthetic versions. My thoughts: SO fun & easy to use. Left my skin feeling refreshed. I would definitely repurchase these!!!

POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer: Each glossy shade is infused with vitamin E and jojoba oil, which provide natural moisture for soft, smooth lips. My thoughts: I’m not usually a gloss girl…but this has a nice light tint to it (not hot pink like shown) and is not sticky at all.

ChapStick® Hydration Lock: The clinically tested formula forms a barrier that traps existing moisture while also drawing it in from the outside. Antioxidant CoQ10 delivers protection from free radicals directly to your lips. Vitamin E, that mainstay of skin health, completes the picture for a softer, silkier pout that also appears fuller thanks to the moisture boost. Sensory bonus: This formula smells like delicious Vanilla Crème. My thoughts: First things first….HIDE THIS FROM MY HUSBAND. He ALWAYS steals my chapsticks or any lip balm that resembles it. I’m not normally a huge chapstick fan (too waxy) but this one is WAY more moisturizing. And I like the light vanilla scent.

Karuna Hydrating Mask

P.S. If you follow me on Instagram, then you would have seen this fab pic of me giving the Karuna mask a try…looks totally creepy but totally hydrating! Two thumbs up. To learn more about Birchbox or to join, click here.
