I have received my first BirchBox for March!! I was practically squealing when I saw it! The box detail was even prettier and cuter in person and I can’t wait to continue collecting them.
In my box I received:
- Vansanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
- Davines OI/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion
- Davines OI/Shampoo
- Davines OI/Conditioner
- Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia
- Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter
- Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm
(All are pictured above)
The Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator is a basically a light scrub, I really liked how it could be used more than once a week and was abrasive enough to really scrub the dead skin/old makeup off. I use a Clarisonic Mia brush with all of my face washes to really get deep into my pores. The fragrance of it was nice and clean too.
Davines OI/ Shampoo and Conditioner are my new FAVORITES! I wasn’t a fan of the scents at first while washing my hair with them but then after drying and straightening my hair I loved it! The scent stayed the entire next day and it made my hair so silky soft, lightweight and felt so so clean! Using the Davines OI/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion probably helped boost these results. This potion feels light to the touch and not oily at all like you would expect from the name. You apply a few pumps to wet or dry hair to tackle frizz. I will definitely be buying this system with my Birch Box points!
I have my favorite perfumes that I tend to stick to but like trying something new once and a while. The Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia will not be something that I will buy. This perfume smelled like someone shoved an ENTIRE flower shop into this tiny bottle. It was way too potent for me and it stuck around FOREVER.
The Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm will also not be a product that I will purchase. It was a little too thick for a face lotion. However, I will probably keep this in my purse in case I need it for an emergency dry skin touch-up.
I have not tried the Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter yet. Probably because the shimmer of it is a little intimidating and I don’t want to look like a drag queen at work (especially since we have large windows with a lot of natural light that would make my face light up like a christmas tree with this stuff on). From some of the reviews I have read, this product seems to be rather sticky and you have to act fast once you apply it so it doesn’t dry weird. Maybe I will be brave enough to try it this weekend…..but probably not since I have a date with a bottle of wine and Netflix. It’s the little things in life that make me happy.
Overall, I think the products in my first box were great! They all complimented each other scent-wise. I used 5 of these products all at once and they were all around the same fragrance pallet so they didn’t overpower each other. I was really excited that I got to try the entire OI Shampoo/Conditioner/beautifying potion together since it sold me on the entire system!
Would any of you be interested in trying these products? I highly recommend BirchBox if you are looking to try something new!
