Birchbox Review: June
I was pretty pleased when I received last month's Birchbox, opened it & saw all the Davines products, especially that big bottle of shampoo. Here's what I got!
Birchbox + Color Club
Wanderlust Collection | Full-size, $8
Exclusive neon pastel shades inspired by four of our favorite cities.
My Review: The color I got is Mod In Manhattan. I haven't used it yet, but it looks like a pale, pinky-white. Good neutral color. I'll use it soon, probably with a gold glitter topcoat. Like you do.
Love Smoothing Shampoo | Full-size, $24
A gentle shampoo packed with moisturizing Indian fig extract & olive oil.
My Review: I really like this shampoo. The sample size was pretty big & lasted awhile. The smell was amazing & my hair did feel super soft. Not sure if I'll add it to my repertoire, but I did like it.
Oscar de l Renta
Something Blue | Full-size, $85-$115
The brand's latest scent, a lovely blend of mandarin & linden blossoms.
My Review: No.
Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser | Full-size, $32.95
Two-in-one cleanser & exfoliator that magically lathers & smells deliciously lemony.
My Review: I didn't like this at all. The smell was too strong. It smelled like a cleaning agent & it did not lather or foam. It was too harsh for my sensitive skin. I used the rest of the sample on my feet - ha!
Love Smoothing Conditioner | Full-size, $27.50
Rich, aromatic conditioner formulated with nourishing borage seed oil.
My Review: This sample was small & hard to use, but I liked it. It smelled good. I'm sure it's great, but a larger sample would have been helpful.
Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion | Full-size, $40
An antioxidant-packed potion to instantly tame frizz & strengthen hair over time.
My Review: I haven't used this yet because I'm not 100% sure if it's for wet or dry hair. I'll use it & report back.
