What's in My BirchBox | March 2014 Edition
Skinfix Body Repair Balm
Since I've only been able to use this product for the last week and a half my opinion of it is still being fully formed. I will say that it is quite moisturizing and that it soaks into my skin nicely. I am not sure if it is a miracle balm as it somewhat claims to be but it is nice and doesn't leave my skin feeling tacky. I am not the biggest fan of the scent but it is something I can easily get over if it continues to impress me.
Ghirardelli Intense Dark Cherry Tango
I am not usually not a fan of anything cherry flavored but apparently if you mix it with dark chocolate and almonds, I can't get enough. This was a yummy treat. My favorite is still the Dark & Sea Salt Carmel flavor but the Dark Cherry Tango is a nice second option.
Air Repair Rescue Balm
I've been using this product on my lips every morning and evening for the past week and a half. So far it has impressed me greatly, I saw a difference in my lips within the first 4days. It's an all in one type product; you can use it on your cuticles, knees, hands, face, elbows, etc... but for me it has been a perfect solution for my dry lips. I've still got a few products I want to try out, but this one is a top contender.
Coola Tinted Matte SPF
Living in Florida, I think we recognize the needs for sunscreen year round. But it is important to protect your skin from the sun, no matter where you live, no matter what season you are in. I personally use the same SPF on my entire body, to some of you that statement may horrify you. If you aren't like me and are looking for an SPF specifically for your face, this is a nice option. It has a little bit of a tint to it so it has light coverage for a beach day. The texture is smooth and mousse like, it soaks into your skin nicely, not leaving a white film like many SPFs out there.
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
BirchBox has been sending a lot of vegan, all natural products out the last few months. This month was no exception. This product is said to be a heat and sun protectant, a conditioner and a de-tangler. I must be honest, I am a hard core It's a 10 fan and I don't see myself switching. If you are really conscious of the ingredients that your salon products are made of, this may be a good purchase for you. It smells lovely and it didn't make my hair feel heavy. It seems like a nice natural option.
Minty Leaf Tea
First off I have to say Tea has been an addition in 4 out of 8 boxes that I've received from BirchBox, I think they are trying to tell me something. Maybe they know my addiction to Starbucks and they are trying to give me better alternatives. I haven't yet tried any of the three flavors they sent me, but I can tell you they all smell quite nice. Apparently all of the ingredients are all natural and the pouch is biodegradable. I personally would have preferred another beauty product over tea yet again, I'm hoping BirchBox steps it up next month.
