Have you subscribed to Birchbox? Whether you have a membership or not, there are many reasons to look forward to quality skincare and makeup products each month – one of which is trying new brands that you wonder how you lived without!

This past month I received both the Monthly & Exclusive kits c/o Birchbox to try some of the latest samples that have enhanced in my skincare & beauty routine. Let’s start with the daily additions to my morning & evening song & dance:

My face gets extremely dry in all weather conditions, particularly when trapped in dry AC-fueled studio apartments. One of the many important things to me is using a product that’s as natural as can be while also working close to overnight – three days tops. Lucky for me this curated kit has helped me in all areas of my skin prep, both morning and night, as well as during the day with the use of a sunscreen moisturizer in the perfect travel-size tube.

Moving on to a day I feel like getting a bit more glam or an evening out, it’s nice to know there are lipsticks out there that actually STAY on your lips. These colors were so fun to try on and I literally watched the lip stain go on wet and dry within seconds to the touch.

Summer brings out the bolder versions of ourselves for the most part, and playing around with a new eye color was definitely something new and exciting to try out as well. I never saw myself as a “blue-eyed girl” but these shades of the hue have me thinking this can become a more frequent occurrence.


And voila, Birchbox has successfully challenged me to try new things AND love them in the process! I can’t wait until the next one arrives and you should be anticipating one as well – by signing up now!
