This month's Birchbox theme was adventure and it was curated by ??? I thought for sure I saw that this was curated by someone but couldn't find it when I went on Birchbox.com. If someone knows, leave a comment below and let me know.

This month's box was a winnah this month. Well, except for the Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen. I've never really cared for Supergoop! products and this sunscreen made me break out something fierce.
My favorite item is definitely the W3LL People 'The Expressionist' Mascara. At first I was like, meh, this isn't anything special, but then it dried, set, and I love it. It's not a huge mascara look...more of a no-makeup-makeup kind of look but it's great. It feels extremely light on my eyes.
Second favorite is the L. Erickson Grab & Go Pony. These little guys are great. They come out of my ultra fine hair just fine and they hold it up just fine. If you've got a ton of hair (which I don't) these would be perfect for you.
Okay, let's talk about the Temple Spa Good Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner. Oh my goodness does this stuff smell good. It's got eucalyptus in it and really, any spa should smell like eucalyptus for me. Hint hint spa owners, eucalyptus is the way to my heart. I haven't tried this yet, because I keep forgetting to bring it in the shower with me, but I can't wait to try it out. Watch my twitter feed (@cwhitney88) for an update about this.
We've already mentioned the Supergoop! sunscreen and the only other thing I received in my box was a bonus sample of the new Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner in Brown. I freaked out when I saw this in my package, and I've tried it a few times. I'm not willing to say I'm disappointed yet....I want to try it more. But I will say it's not going great so far which is a pretty big disappointment. Fingers crossed it's just user error!
