Birch box January 2016

At the end of November 2016 I subscribed myself to a couple of beauty boxes.  I have a huge love for trying new make up products and had found that each time I went into my local beauty store, I spent a small fortune to satisfy my need of trying new products.  I then noticed a Buzzfeed article for the top beauty subscription boxes of 2016.   After reading, I signed up for 3 different monthly subscription boxes and one quarterly box.  I hope to put a quick review of each one on here to share some new products with you.

One of my monthly subscription boxes is Birchbox.  This subscription is $10 each month and it  contains 5 sample sized products tailored to your skin, hair & style.  Each month I receive an email asking me which box I would like & if you get in early enough you can actually choose some of your samples.  I was a little late to see the email this month though so I got the curated box, which is a predetermined set of samples.  I didn’t mind this though because I love to try anything new!

The Price of Beauty

Over the years, I’ve had periods of buying different kinds of beauty products; budget, expensive, organic & handmade. Each time I try these different products, I either like them or I don’t. I suppose I go through phases of using them and find I want to switch for no clear reason. I’m not sure why I do this, I just do!

Just as we left the UK, I had fallen into the habit of buying the same products and even brought a couple of month’s supply of make-up over to the States with me. I like using products that I know I like. I sometimes get a bit nervous of change, especially when it comes to make-up. Am I going to be too pale? Do I look like an Oompa-Loompa? Will it dry out my skin? anyway, a lot of questions are asked!

So… I ran out of my UK supplies and needed to buy some more make-up. We are also in the process of trying new beauty/skincare products that we have never had access too. As much as I would love to spend $10 on a designer hand soap and body wash, we are trying to spend as little as possible at the moment. The following products are my favourites of the ones I have tried so far and I wanted to share them with you! Some are available in the UK too 🙂
