Reviews
1. tarte LipSurgence lip tint
  • I have used tarte's LipSurgence products before and loved it. I was very happy to see this full sized item in my box this month. It was in a shade that I would not normally purchase for myself, but it is so gorgeous on. Thank you for sending a color I wouldn't normally purchase.
 2. MicrodermaMitt Body Mitt
  • I was slightly surprised to see this in the box this month. My boyfriend's sister got me an Asian product that is similar to this for Christmas and it felt like it was yanking my skin off. I was slightly hesitant to use it, but I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. Much to my surprise this product is much gentler on my skin, and left it soft and smooth. Now if I could just keep it away from my boyfriend... He loves these types of products, but you didn't hear it from me.
 3. Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream
  •  I was excited to see this since there is a patch on my elbow that continues to be dry and try to crack. I immediately put it on that spot and I noticed it did not feel like it was dry and about to crack the next day. That is a huge win in my book. The scent on the other hand is quite bad, so I'm not sure if I should purchase this since it smells bad.
 4. Marula – The Leakey Collection™ Omega Rich Pure Marula Oil
  • I love getting oil since I would never buy it for myself. I always worry that if I put oil on my face it will make my face oily and break out. This product did not break me out or make my skin oily.  
 5. Wonderstruck Taylor Swift Perfume
  • My first thought was "oh man, I see this everywhere I should try it". I tried it, and it actually smelt decent. I then wore it for about 30 minutes (possibly less) and went to smell it again and it was GONE. How a perfume fades that quickly I have no clue. I would not purchase this if I was in love with the scent since the scent fades way too quickly. 

For the girls wondering what the heck Birchbox is, it is a monthly subscription box that sends out 4-5 deluxe sized products (sometimes full sized). The tarte product alone (retails for $24) was over the $10 I spent on the box. I won't lie to you and say that every month is like this, but I have had quite a few boxes that I loved and they all seem worth over the $10 I spent.

    1. That sucks, I wonder why they didn't just give you another one. I've heard a few people talk about their cap being unable to open and one girl even posted an unboxing video and it showed her struggling to open it. She couldn't get it open either.

    3. I'll check and see if I have one that hasn't been used. I bought a 5 pack around x-mas but I'm not sure if I've used them all :( If not I'll message you <3
