January 2015 Birchbox Tone it Up Unboxing. Spoilers!

Hi everyone! I finally got my January Birchbox (the crowd goes wild). To be honest I not only got Birchbox but my Boxycharm and a Korean Beauty haul (yes I’ll blog about them all). So this was a good beauty day!

I feel like I explain what Birchbox (and all the sub boxes) is every month. So, if you want me to stop doing that please let me know. Birchbox is a $10.00 a month beauty subscription service that sends you five sample to deluxe sized samples a month. You also have a chance to pick one of your samples every month or choose your box. This month I decided to get the special Tone It Up box. This box claimed to have gym essentials in it. 

Now on to all the things!

I have heard so many things about the Klorane Dry Shampoo that this alone made me choose the Tone it Up box. Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk sample (Full-sized $19.50) is said to absorbed grease and put the bounce back into second-day or post-gym hair. I’m so excited about this dry shampoo. I’m going to use it tomorrow on my “second-day hair”. 

Whish Three Wishes Body Butter in Lavender sample (full-size $24) is an antioxidant-rich hydrator that softens, soothes, and firms. The smell is not something I personally like for a body moisturizer. It’s very perfumy and smells a little like baby powder. As an adult woman, baby powder isn’t my go to scent – smile. 

Aquareveal Satin Bright Soft Water Peel for Face sample (full-size $49.00) is a gentle treatment that removes impurities and exfoliates without irritating skin. This I’m excited to try. Yes I know face stuff is iffy for me but this is a clear gel with no scent and no abrasives. I am going to try this tonight to see how my face reacts. 

Next we have the COOLA Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion (long name) sample size (full-size $32.00). The lotion is soothing with agave to moisturize, protect, and calm and post-sun woes. I’m not a sun worshiper (I’m in Florida and I don’t like skin cancer) so I’ll keep this just-in-case something happens this summer. 

I’m really enjoying Costal Scents palette’s lately. This sample palette in Latte by Costal Scents (full-size palette $19.95) is no exception. The colors are great and the pigment is spot on. No fallout to speak of and it’s the perfect size to throw in a travel bag or purse (or gym bag). Great little sample!

I have to say that Birchbox has been hitting them out of the park for me these past few months. Keep up the great work Birchbox. What did you think about your Birchbox this month?
