Favorites from Birchbox!

I have been working on some posts for quite a while now, just can't seem to finish them. And I have a sweet giveaway for you, but in the meantime, I thought I'd wake up my blog from it's 4th of July coma and do a fun post for you!

I have had the pleasure of trying so many awesome beauty samples as a result of my Birchbox subscription. And I am a big believer that when you find a good product, you should spread the word.

The thing about Birchbox, is that since not everyone gets the same products, you don't always know what everyone else is getting in theirs, and what they love. So... I'm here to share with you some of the things I have fallen in love with!

 In no particular order:

Alima Pure Organic Nourishing Lip Balm (that was a mouthful!)
So it's organic, as said in the name. ;-) It's basically just a tinted lip balm. I love something that is moisturizing, but also gives a little pop of color. It has stuff like cocoa butter, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, so it smells super yummy. I give it an A.


Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream
 This stuff is the bomb *yes I just said that. I am always on the look out for awesome moisturizers and I have received several different brands of moisturizers to sample over the last several months. Jurlique is by far my favorite!! My husband even tried to steal it from me. I am so pleased with this product. It's very rich and creamy. It feels really good on my skin. If you're looking for an awesome moisturizer.. this stuff is it.

  Stila One Step Bronze
I know that I've already raved about this, but it really is awesome. It's a primer, a bronzer, and a skin perfector. You can put it on your entire face, or just your cheeks. I just dap a tiny bit then rub in in my palm, and apply it to my cheek bones. It blends nicely and it give me a bronzey-shimmery look. Tops my list of favorite make-up products for SURE.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
I'm a fan of exfoliating products. I feel like my skin really needs it. This stuff is a powder, so you just get your hands wet, then pour some of of the powder in your palm and it turns into a foamy cream. It leaves my skin feeling really smooth, and it smells amazing, too!! I use it every day.

Yes To Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes
I really hate taking make-up off at night. I don't know why but it's always a pain. These little towelettes are awesome, though. They are make-up removing-cleansing-moisturizing towelettes that smell amazing! It's oil-free and hypoallergenic, always a plus. These are perfect for me.

So those are my faves from Birchbox thus far!! I was not paid to write this post, the truth is that I really do recommend these products! I am looking forward to the months to come and see what other great products they'll send!!
