What is Birchbox you ask?  Well, for $10 a month, every month, I receive a selection of samples, whether they’re well-known brands or emerging brands, everything from skincare to makeup and even non-beauty goodies.  The samples come with master techniques and even ways to upgrade your daily routines with articles, interviews and videos.  That’s not it though, say you fall in love with one of the samples in your monthly Birchbox, you can purchase a full-size version right from the Birchbox Shop…so you’ve got a One Stop Shop right at your fingertips!

This month’s box, my first box, it’s dedicated to making the most of every minute; helping you take care of every situation.  What’s the inspiration? USA’s hit series SUITS.

So far, I’ve used the Benefit Cosmetics It’s Potent! Eye Cream, the DDF Acne Control Treatment and the theBalm Cosmetics InStain Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush…and so far I like them all.   The eye cream, one thing that I do like, is that a little goes a long way.  It’s a cooling sensation when applied to under the eye.  As time goes by and I use it on a regular basis, I will hope to see a difference.  I apply the acne control treatment on top of my moisturizer, at night before I go to bed, and I’ve heard that there can be extreme dryness, but so far, I haven’t experienced that either.  The one product that I saw working right away was the blush.  I usually don’t go for warmer, red-toned blushes like the one that was in the Birchbox, but this one, when I applied it right, under my cheekbones, it was so pretty!

Other products in the box include Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect and for a Beauty Extra, Birchbox Bobby Pins.  If you haven’t signed up for Birchbox yet, ladies AND gentlemen (yes they do have boxes for the handsome men as well) you MUST…it’s well worth my $10 a month and this is just my first box!  The products are unbelievable and I mean it’s a surprise in the mail every month…GO SIGN UP ASAP!
