I finally have recieved my long awaited birchbox! Last month started out as an eh box that turned into I LOVED that box!(to check out last months box click here) 

Click down below to see what I think about this box!


I used to get my birchbox before the 10th of every month. My posts used to be one of the first ones to go up. Now my last two birchboxes I got after the 10th *sad face* but I still get them! This month I got my long awaited box on the 11th.

 This month theme is Beauty Buzz. The say they sent out the products that has everyone buzzing about. They included a hashtag #bbbeautybuzz that they wanted us to instagram/tweet about which products we were 'buzzing' about.

 In my Birchbox I recieved:

  • Sarahpotempa The Half-up- It's basically a mini bun helper. Since my hair is so fine I can use this for all my hair verse for the half up half down it recommends.  I'm super annoyed that this was in my birchbox!! 
  • Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Extreme Renewal Exoliating Facial- It's basically first a face mask than when you wash it off, you only wet it a little, use it as a scrub then wash it away.
  • Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum- Just another supergoop! sunscreen. eh
  • theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen- Another sheer rosy lip and cheek tint. 
I'm feeling eh about this box. I have a ton of hope for this box still. Last month was an eh month but I ended up loving it. Maybe I'll learn to love this box as well! 

I tried the Half-up as soon as I was done taking pictures of my box. I did it while sitting on the floor with no mirror.
Step 1
I just threw my hair into a high ponytail.
Step 2
Slide my hair through the slit of the bun maker, slide it to the ends then rolled it up to the base of my ponytail. 
Step 3
Once at the base of my ponytail I molded it into a circle and moved my hair to cover bald spots.

As annoyed as I am that this is in my birchbox, it does work well.
