I first must apologize for posting this extremely late. I got this box on the second week of February. March’s box should be on it’s way as we speak, so I better get this one up before the other one comes, uh? So far, this box is my favorite.
Oh yes, I finally received a NARS products! I’ve always wanted to try NARS’ Orgasm products. I really wanted the blush, but I guess this has to do. I haven’t used it yet, but maybe tomorrow, I will try it out.
Here is NARS Illuminator in the color Orgasm. The tube is about 1.1 fl oz and it comes in the NARS classic black packaging. The color is kinda peachy pink. It goes on as a liquid, but dries into a iridescent sheen on your skin. You can place this product anywhere: cheekbones, eyebrows, chest, anywhere!
I don’t like illuminators, but I’m going to give this a fair chance. You never know, I might end up loving this product. Stay tuned!
This moisturizer smells yummy. It’s smells slightly sweet green tea scent. I’ve never heard of Pomega5, but so far I’m loving it. From the Birchbox informational card: Get a triple close of antioxidants from this light cream, which uses Omega 5 fatty acids, green tea, and verbena to hydrate and brighten skin.
When I tested out this lotion, I did notice my skin much smoother and brighter, but since my face is already matte, I can’t say on the mattifying part.
Last month’s box, there was the chai tea bags. This month, they added Sweetriot chocolates. Bits of dark cacao seeds dipped into dark chocolate is DELICIOUS. It reminds me of espresso dipped in chocolate. Trust me, it’s yummy and the best part, it’s only one nib, one calorie.
All of Sweetriot’s ingredients are responsibly sourced and the tins are made out of recyclable metals. Cool.
By far the STAR of the whole box. BEST exfoliator I’ve ever used in my life. Befine is (from the birchbox info card) “a foaming face cleanser that gently sloughs away dead skin using natural brown sugar and oats to leave skin super soft.”
When you first put the cleanser on your face, you can feel the grains from the brown sugar. It wasn’t harsh, but it wasn’t smooth either. To me, it was perfect. The ONE thing that makes this different then any other cleanser is the graduals eventually melt away, so when you rinse your face, you are not left with bits of exfoliant in your eyelashes. The cleanser even smells like brown sugar and yups, you guess it, it even TASTE good. Look, I didn’t purposely eat it, but I was exfoliating my lips and I accidently got some in my mouth. It tasted like brown sugar. Yum, yum. I am DEFINITELY repurchasing this product. I’m in love.
Sorry, I haven’t even opened this product. The reason why is because I already have way too much mascaras open right now. I’m going to open this one up when I finish my other ones, which might take forever! For now, please visit the Bare Escentuals website for more information.
