How pretty is this month's box?! Birchbox teamed up with Rifle Paper Co. for a beautiful floral box that's perfect for spring! I can't get over how lovely it is! I don't want to throw it away!But just as exciting, is what came inside the box! AMAZING hair products from Davines, gorgeous organic pigments from Au Naturale, and lovely scents from English Laundry!
1. Davines Ol Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Milk
HOLY COW. As I write this, I'm currently running my fingers through my hair in disbelief. For background, I have very long, bleached hair which is usually a nightmare to wash, brush out, dry, and just style in general. After only one wash with Davines Ol shampoo, conditioner, and spraying in the all-in-one hair milk before blow-drying, my hair is light, tangle free, incredibly soft, voluminous, shiny, and a million other amazing things. I'm a complete convert. All three of these are at the TOP of my list to buy! I'm in love!!
I wasn't too impressed with the color payoff of the blush (in Palermo) or eyeshadow (in Ivory), but I love that they're an organic creme makeup brand, so I'll definitely be trying more of their stuff! The one plus, was the lipcolor (in Sangria), I applied it very lightly and it left a very pretty, summery berry-pink! The shade Primrose also looks gorgeous! Worth checking out!
I just bought my boyfriend, Leo, an English Laundry cologne for his birthday, (it's Riviera, if you're shopping for your man too!) and so I was very excited to see a women's fragrance by the same brand in my box! Notting Hill Femme has notes of bergamot, lemon, jasmine, and cedar, which creates a light and classic scent, perfect for everyday wear.
If I'm being honest, I usually don't use a shaving cream at all. I'll use shampoo or body wash or whatever is in the shower! And to be even more honest, I'll probably stick to that. I tried out this cream, and actually had a harder time shaving with it than my usual go to. Skip out on this one.
It's a little difficult to review a skincare product after only a few uses, but so far so good on this one! It has a light exfoliation and claims to minimize pores, which I suppose it has, though I've never had a huge problem with that. My only complaint is the smell. It might not bother everyone, but I'm not a huge fan of it's harsh, herby smell.
