March 2017 Birchbox Unboxing

Woo hoo, it’s Birchbox unboxing time once again!  This month, I opted for the curated box.  The box — Pretty Mighty — honors Women’s History Month and features selections by Reese Witherspoon’s Southern-inspired lifestyle brand, Draper James.  This month’s products are “powerful” and “high-performing,” just like the badass women in our lives!

This box really excites me because I love every product in it!  Here, I’ll discuss my three favorites.

Even though I adore Davines products, I’ve posted on them quite a bit — including on the shampoo and conditioner samples included in this month’s box — so I won’t do so here.  But don’t despair!  You can read more about Davines in these posts: Davines?

This month I was most pleasantly surprised by ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm.  I’d been wanting to try this Birchbox brand for some time, but hadn’t gotten around to it.  I have sensitive skin, so I can’t use lip balms that are too strong, too smelly, etc.  This lip balm is mild and hydrating . . . and the color is great!  It goes on fairly clear and then apparently works with your skin’s pH to create a flattering hue.  On me, its a flattering soft pink (rare for me), perfect for a no makeup look or a neutral lip to compliment heavier eye makeup.  It leaves my lips feeling so soft.  LOVE!

I also really enjoyed trying Clarins Hydra-Essential Silky Cream (Normal to Dry Skin).  I’ve been using this face cream the last few days and I love that this cream is both super hydrating and easily absorbed.  It doesn’t feel greasy at all.  I should point out that it has a bit of a perfumey smell, but it seems to fade pretty quickly.

The last product I’ll discuss is Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer.  This is another one of those products that has a cult following that I’ve somehow never tried, so I was really excited to get to try it this month!  This primer feels great on my skin.  A tiny amount goes a long way.  My pores aren’t quite as noticeable after application and my makeup went on smoothly.  Definitely a solid primer!
