For September I opted out of BirchBox’s regular September send and selected the Customer Favorites Box. I wanted to try some of the most-loved products, and I’m actually really pleased with everything they sent. Sure, another fragrance sample was in there (ugh) BUT the shampoo and conditioner is so great that I’m willing to look get over it. How angelic of me, amirite? Anyway, take a look inside:
The Customer Favorites Box came with fairly large samples of mainly bath products, plus one makeup sample:
- Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo
- Beauty Protector Protect & Conditioner
- Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit
- Harvey Prince Hello
- Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner in Mulberry
I’ll be honest, I have only used the Beauty Protector shampoo and conditioner so far. And guys… it is amazing. I’m very particular about what I use on my hair, and I was very pleasantly surprised with how great this worked. My hair feels stronger and much cleaner.
Something weird to point out, though: the shampoo and conditioner smell sickly sweet. Kind of in a President Snow way. Like, there’s something wrong with how sweet it smells. I feel like Katniss when I use it, but then I get excited because I feel like Katniss so I let the sweet smell go. And Mike likes it so I guess it can’t be all that bad.
I’m pretty stoked to try this fancy hot cloth facial cleanser thing. I have no idea how it’s going to go – my skin has been rebelling like you couldn’t believe lately. And I’m still working myself up to trying this colored eyeliner. How many times can Birchbox give me a colored eye liner before I use it? I guess we’ll find out.
