It’s that time of the month again for a new Birchbox unboxing!
This month’s theme is Naturally Radiant, the type of glow achieved with “no makeup” makeup. This box is well-suited for May, when transitioning to lighter makeup, better sunscreen protection, and a sun-kissed hue.
I was excited this month to get some products that I already adore, and products from brands that I love.
CLEAN Blossom Eau de Parfum is the perfect springtime perfume. It smells floral and citrusy. A little goes a long way with this intoxicating scent.
I am a big fan of ModelCo and the ModelCo Lip Lacquer is a formula with excellent shine and pigment. For me, the sample color (Creme Brûlée) was a little light for my skin tone, but I’m intrigued by the other hues. (For more on ModelCo, click here and here!)
COOLA® SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray is really cool! If you read my posts, you already know I use Coola for face and body sun protection. This makeup setting spray pulls double duty by helping your makeup stay put and adding some much-needed SPF. I was surprised by how non-greasy it was, as well as the matte finish. My makeup looked flawless longer. (For more on Coola, click here!)
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer has been a Benefit bestseller since before I can remember, but for some reason, I’d never tried this powder bronzer. Now I get the hype! This bronzer has great pigment and color, and the matte finish is a great alternative to more shimmery bronzers, making it great for warm-weather office wear. The color looks very natural on me. Hoola is probably my favorite bronzer so far! (To read about the liquid version of this bronzer, click here!)
I mentioned that this box included some favorites of mine. I love Davines hair products and have tried both Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Davines LOVE Smoothing Conditioner in the past. I absolutely love them. They smell great, feel luxurious applied, and my hair feels soft after use. (For more on these products, click here!)
