OH. MY. GUCCI. It’s here! My first EVER Birchbox! And guess what? I squee’d. Out loud. Not just in text, but out loud! I’m not going to waste your time, so here it is!
I was so very very happy with this, my first ever Birchbox. If you don’t know what Birchbox is, it’s a $10/month service and you get 5-6 luxury samples from brands like Laura Mercier, NARS, Stila, benefit, Ahava, etc. Now, by luxury samples, I don’t mean those teeny little plastic or aluminum sleeves that give you a quarter of a use out of it, I mean trial/travel sizes. Awesome right?
Okay, so first off, I don’t have a picture of everything all nicely wrapped, because I tore it all up pretty instantly. Now, I had a feeling that something Zoya would be in this box– and I was right. It included a mini (as if Zoya could get any mini-er) of Jules from the intimate collection. She’s so pretty. Now, in this picture she looks purple– She’s not. This polish it’s tan. With golden shimmer. So pretty.
- Birchbox says;
Zoya, Nail Polish in Jules– Green is glam, especially when it comes to Zoya’s super glossy lacquers. This versitile metallic hue is your new spring go-to. Full size: 0.5oz $8
Juice Beauty, Green Apple Peel– This organic peel doesn’t mess around: natural fruit acids dissolve even the most tenacious dead cells for an immediately brighter, smoother complextion. Full size: 2 fl oz. – $45Extra: Juice Beauty, Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer.
– Made from biodegradable and sustainable ingredients, this lush scent is laced with jasmine and sandalwood. Plus, ten percent of sales go directly to Global Green. Full-size: 3.4 fl oz. – $60
I just dabbed some of this on my wrist, and wow do I love it! It’s so soft and natural. You can’t smell any chemicals. It reminds me of when you first get out of the shower on a spring day. When there’s fresh air and a light breeze and sunshine, and you can still faintly smell the soap. This is very much a happy scent. It’s not exactly sexy, but it can be very breezy sexy. I love it. I’m a sandalwood fan. A++ on this one. I’ll use this sample up and then decide whether or not I’ll buy the full size. (and of course I’ll let you guys know.)
– A silky lotion that adds major hydration without feeling heavy. Organic rosehip oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and E, which work to soften and protect skin. Full-size: 1 fl oz. – $28
I think I’m going to try this first, then the Green Apple Peel above. I’m scared of the whole “peel” aspect.
EXTRA: Bloomin, Seed Paper– Even better than recyclable: Plant this homemade paper in soil, give it a little water, and watch it sprout into wildflowers.
Isn’t this so cute? It’s so pretty I don’t even want to plant it. Oh, but I will, of course. I love flowers. =)
