March Empties

Another month gone and another month’s worth of empties. We are getting very close to my birthday month and my vacation month. My dad is having foot surgery and I will be taking a month off of work to take care of him and my son. This year is really flying by. Why couldn’t high school have flown by as much as time seems to do nowadays? Seriously. Time goes by so slow when you are young with no money and when you actually grow up and can spend, time flies by so much you don’t really get the chance to do what you want to do. April starts my lifestyle changes. I have new hair (coming up soon), new exercise routine, and new meal planning. I hope that I stick with it.

For some reason, the last picture was half corrupted, but I am including it anyway. I already threw out all of these empties. I am trying to review the products in my empties that I want to review before throwing them all out. That is why my empties have been late recently. I currently have a ton of older products that I used up that I have yet to write reviews on. I want to review anything new coming in, so I can tackle that empties bucket without adding more to it. You will probably be seeing a shit ton of reviews, especially when I start up college. Reviews are super easy for me to throw on my blog when they are already typed up. 🙂

With Love,

May Birchbox

I know that I am really late with my May Birchbox, but better late than never right? I could blame the baby, but I was also a bit lazy as well. I have a three day weekend, so you can look forward to at least two posts today and one tomorrow. I’m hoping to write more than three posts, but you never know. Raising a child is hard work and time consuming. Right now, he is sitting in his pink bubba seat. So cute how he loves to watch me type on my laptop. Anyways, here is my May Birchbox.

I love the pastel color scheme and the fact that I received a box that I really love. There is variety in this box: a hair product, two face product, a makeup product, and a body product as well. This box is about protecting and having clear, luminous skin.

Body Peel

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel for Body, 0.5 fl oz for about $3.50

I have tried this product for the face and I wasn’t really impressed with it. It’s a good product, just nothing exciting or special about it. This foil packet probably has two uses in it. I plan on using this only on my arms…and maybe my legs. It has 1 to 2 uses depending upon what you use it on. It is enough to see if you like the product and I enjoy trying out products from different brands. I wish it would have been something different from this brand, since I already tried this one for the face.

Dry Shampoo

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo, 0.75 oz for about $4 USD

I could always use another dry shampoo and I use this almost on a daily basis now. So, you will probably be seeing more dry shampoo empties in the future. This is a nice sized sample to try. I love the scent of this product and it is the perfect size to throw into my purse to touch up my hair throughout the day at work or out and about. In fact, it is going in my purse right now. It is a basic staple and can double as deodorant in a pinch, especially with this scent.

ModelCo Lip Lacquer in Viva, 0.05 fl oz for about $5 USD

This is the perfect pinky-nude and it is not very opaque. It has some color to it, but it isn’t a liquid lipstick, but has more pigment than a lip gloss. It is the perfect nude for my lips and I will be getting a lot of use out of this gloss. It is something that I can just throw on and not have to worry about a perfect application. I am satisfied with this formula and color.

Face mask

Kalos Skincare Triple Threat Detox Masque, 0.5 oz for about $12 USD

Since taking this picture, I have tried this mask. It seems to be a moisturizing mask that removes impurities from the skin. I like this mask, but I wouldn’t go out and buy it. It has a warming sensation due to the cayenne pepper in it. It’s an okay mask, but nothing really special about it. I enjoyed trying it out and it seems to have 5 uses in it.

Moisturizer

COOLA SPF 50 Sport in Mango, 10 ml for about $2 USD

It smells like mangoes and coconuts! It is the perfect summertime scent. I cannot wait to try this out. It is a decent sized sample and I should use SPF everyday, but I don’t. I need to get better at that. Time to start now, I guess.

I look forward to trying everything I received and I am happy that everything seems to be a decent size as well. May was a winning month for Birchbox.

With Love,

Selena
