Now, you know I love Ipsy. But, when I saw I could try Birchbox for $5, I just couldn’t resist! I just received the May box, so how does it compare to my favorite beauty subscription? Read on!
The box contained 5 large sample products to try. (I really like the box design inside!)
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle (Full-size, $21.95)
Since my hair is pretty fine I don’t struggle with too much tangle, but I do occasionally use a detangler so I’ll add this to my routine in the next few days and see how it goes! It’s supposed to condition, protect hair from heat damage and lock-in color. I don’t color my hair, but I’ll see how it fairs with the other claims!
Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion (Full-size, $16)
This stuff smells amazing. I feel super fancy using it. It kind of counters the workout clothes I’m currently wearing which do not feel fancy. (In my defense, I did actually work out.)
Supergoop! Everyday SPF 30 with Cellular Response Technology (Full-size, $19)
Another sunscreen sample to try! My daily moisturizer only has an SPF of 15, so I could use the extra protection!
Harvey Prince Hello Perfume (Full-size, $55)
I kind of like this! Actually, I really like this! A combination of lemon, grapefruit, forsythia and plumeria gives a sweet, but not too floral-y scent. I’m going to try this out for a few days!
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Black Eyeliner (Full-size, $16)
I can always use another black eyeliner! This is a soft pencil and it goes on really smooth. Another to add to the rotation for a while and see how it compares!
