This month's theme was vacation (or stay-cation). If you can't afford to go out on a spa retreat, BirchBox has added samples that are perfect to pamper yourself with. In this box they sent: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit, Nexxus® Color Assure™ Pre-Wash Primer, Nexxus® Color Assure™ Vibrancy Retention Shampoo, Nexxus® Color Assure™ Vibrancy Retention Conditioner, English Laundry Signature for Her, Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner and Egyptian Magic Skin Cream.
I will start with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Kit since that's what I sampled first. The instructions are very straight forward and the product is easy to use. You massage the cream onto your dry face and neck using circular motions, run the cloth that is included in the kit under warm/hot water and wipe your face and neck (make sure you use a clean portion of the cloth with each wipe), when your face is all clean and free from the cream you splash your face with cold water and voila! Your face is clean and smooth. I didn't have to use moisturizer after I used this so I was stoked about that. I usually have to drench my face in lotion after I wash it because it gets all dried out but this didn't dry me out and it didn't make me breakout so I'd have to say that is a win.
The first thing that I'd like to point out is that this sample is adorable. Great marketing strategy Nexxus. Not only is the packaging adorable, the product itself is amazing. I dyed my hair red over 6 months ago and it had started to look pretty dull. After using this sample once, my hair color looked like it was fresh out of the box. I'm definitely trading my Radiant Red in for this.
I just got the notification that my July BirchBox has been shipped so I will be (impatiently) waiting by my mailbox for that to show up. I also signed up for an Ipsy GlamBag to see what the difference between the two are, so keep your eyes open for that review and comparison of the two services. In the meantime go over to BirchBox and get signed up to get your monthly box :) https://www.birchbox.com/invite/BeeBeeandJack
