January-Birchbox Edition {Love it, Like it, or Leave it.}

Im fully aware that it is nearly March as I’m wring this but my subscriptions were backordered and didn’t come in until late February and wouldn’t you know as soon as i get around to it-life happens. Isn’t it funny how just when you think you have everything figured out life throws a curve ball? Anyway, its a series i want to continue, not just for my subscriptions like birch box and boxy charm but, in ultra and Sephora hauls et cetera. I realize this won’t be possible  to do on every level that i want to do it on because soon we will be living in Germany, which still feels like a dream, and rumor has it the nearest Sephora is over an hour and one country away. I know! the absolute horror I’m feeling can’t even begin to be described in words. I will totally do what I can though to keep this in theme, but meanwhile lets catch you up.

how this works: its pretty self explanatory, I list items i bought or received by subscription and tell you if i love it (highly recommend), Like it (maybe not for everyone), leave it (wouldn’t recommended). Also I try to add any thoughts I may have on the product and I pride myself on being very honest. here it goes.

BEAUTY PROTECTOR LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

  • This product is a good example of a *like it* product.
  • I used it several times, it smells like snickerdoodles, no kidding.
  • works well, easy to pull though
  • easy to spray
  • The reason its a like it instead of love it is because i don’t love it enough to replace my existing leave in conditioner. The smell was overall the most desirable aspect.

SUPERGOOP CC CREAM IN FAIR TO LIGHT

  • *like it*
  • smells like sunscreen, very much so.
  • wouldn’t use every day because i don’t love smelling like sunscreen.
  • they personalize for skin tone but this one was still way too yellow.
  • natural overall pigment, just not right for me.

CYNTHIA ROWLEY PENCIL EYELINER IN BLACK

  • *LEAVE IT*
  • goes on easy, but overall run of the mill pencil eyeliner.

VASANTI BRIGHTEN UP CLEANSER

  • *LIKE IT*
  • feels amazing, like a microdermabrasion
  • skin feels great and smooth afterwards
  • only somewhat irritating to my skin, hard to rub on
  • feels like sandpaper, somewhat.
  • wouldn’t use everyday

  • smells fruity and delicious
  • less gritty then the aforementioned one
  • leaves face feeling smooth
  • easy to apply
