Birchbox January 2016

It's been a while since I've done a Birchbox review and that's predominately because, well, I had cancelled my Birchbox for a while. I keep trying to convince myself that it's not worth the whopping $10/month, but every time I cancel the subscription, I find myself regretting it. So, now we're on again, and here's the first review of the year:

Let's start with the Oribe Cote d'Azur eau de parfum. This was just okay for me. Not something I'm going to run out and buy, because the scent just wasn't for me, but it wasn't terrible. It was very very subtle. I generally like something a little more in-yo-face.

If you follow me on instagram (@shesleaningin) you'll have seen me raving about the Pur-lisse BB Tinted Moisturizer already. I was incredibly impressed by this. I applied this using my fingers, and not only did it provide medium coverage, but left my skin feeling light and moisturized. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future.

Moving on to the Supergoop! Anti-Anging City Sunscreen Serum...this did nothing. You guys, I'm not going to lie, I really dislike Supergoop! as a brand. I have yet to find a product that I'm like...yes, this works. This was another flop for me.

I was most excited to see the Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner. I've been using the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner for years. I haven't used this product yet, but I can almost promise you that it will be worth looking in to.

Finally, the De-Tangling Conditioner by Parlor is another flop product for me. It did nothing. In fact, this brand is a lot like Supergoop! Tried a bunch of items, but have never found anything that I liked.

That's it! What was in your box this month? I'd like to know!

PS Brian now has a different subscription box coming called Battlbox. It's more for dudes. I think I might do a quick review of his first box on here...what do you think? Any ladies looking for something to keep the hubby distracted while we purchase makeup?
