Birchbox February 2016

Birchbox is so much fun.  I am not a makeup person but decided to try birchbox to see new products and learn how to use others.

You get 5 items in a cute box for $10.  They are sample sized but worth more than $10.  If you love the product you can buy the full size.  If you review your items you earn points that add up to $ and can be used to purchase full sized items.

My February 2016 Birchbox came and I Love everything inside.  If you would like to give it a try use my referral code.  I will get credit points to buy full size products.  https://www.birchbox.com/invite/s3j52

  1. amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: Full size $24

The weightless spray absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving locks clean and deodorized as well as lighter and softer. Made with antioxidant and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, the formula simultaneously moisturizes and strengthens hair, repairs split ends, and enhances shine. Moreover, amika’s dry shampoo relies on rice starch instead of aluminum shavings or talc, and it’s safe for color-treated hair. Shake can vigorously. Hold 10–12 inches away from scalp and spray gently, concentrating on roots. Massage through hair with fingertips, and style as desired.

Easy to use and great for when you are on the go and just can’t get that shower in right away.

2. Marcelle New age 8 in 1 power serum: full size $36

This lightweight antiaging gel starts to work in just a week, providing eight transformative benefits in one tube. When it comes to lines, it smooths, provides a filling effect, and visibly reduces even deep wrinkles. It also firms, lifts, and strengthens, while working to boost radiance and improve the texture of your complexion. Even better: It does all of this without parabens, gluten, or fragrance. Use daily for best results

Rub on and makes your face feel silky smooth.

3. Living proof.® Restore Mask Treatment: Full Size $42

repairs dry, damaged hair: It also makes it up to 20 times stronger. The secret lies in a special molecule, OFPMA, which smooths and coats the hair shaft, helping it retain much-needed moisture and resist future damage. The formula is free of sulfates, silicones, and oils (which can weigh down fine hair), and safe for chemically- and color-treated strands

I have not tried this yet but am excited to give it a go

4. ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm: Full size $14

Formulated to adjust to your unique pH, it enhances each wearer’s natural lip color to create the perfect, just-for-you hue. Nourishing ingredients like mango seed butter hydrate and protect lips, and the lightweight, subtle formulation allows it to go wherever you do—from pre-work yoga to a lunch date to happy hour. Another perk? It boasts a lovely minty scent. Like all products in the ARROW collection, it is vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

Love this product and may buy the full size.  It does enhance the color of my lips and works on chapped lips as well.

5. True Moringa Lavender Facial Oil: Full size $26

this lightweight facial treatment, cold-pressed moringa oil offers its powerhouse blend of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, while lavender essential oil provides incomparable soothing hydration. Working together, the two luxe oils moisturize and calm irritated, dry skin to reveal a smooth, supple, and glowing complexion

I haven’t tried this yet but will soon and report back
