I got my January Birchbox!!!! As promised, I’ll be sharing my reviews about my Birchbox haul! My December review got a lot of good feedback, and I think I turned a couple of you readers into Birchbox believers. January is my birthday month, and so when I saw a new Birchbox in my mail, I just felt birthday fuzzies all over again.

Contents:

1) Zoya Nailpolish in Megan

Since I am obsessed with nail polish, my eyes had a joygasm. Within about 3 seconds, I had painted my thumbnail with this color, admired it, and proceeded to paint every other nail. This color is an extremely pale, almost white lavender color, it dries with a high gloss sheen, which I LOVE.  The cost is $8 for a full size color (compared to OPI at $8.50), this Zoya color is worth it. Also, this color dries pretty quickly, which helps klutz’s like me. Feminine but fashionable. THUMBS UP!

2) Juicy Couture Signature Scent

LOVE. Thats all. Perfume is usually a hit or miss with me, so I usually don’t have many favorites, but this scent is amazing. It smells floral sweet, but isn’t too overbearing. The fullsize 1.7 ounce is $69, and the 3.4 ounce is $89.

3) Befine Nightcream

This is a light night cream designed to minimize and mitigate fine lines, all while you get your daily dose of ZzZzZ’s. Made with cocoa, millet, & rice bran. This is allergan free, fragrance free, paraban free, and made out of vegetable proteins. Basically it’s a lot more better for your skin than a lot of the creams out there right now. It’s light enough to put on prior to sleeping, and lets your skin breathe all night, while hydrating – uber important!

4) Larabar Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bar

Peanut butter, peanut oil, peanut butter chocolate chip bar. I definitely tasted more peanut butter than I did chocolate chip. I’d suggest this if you like health bars, and enjoy peanut butter. Also it is rather filling, so it’s a good supplement for a meal. $17 for a pack of 16.

5) VMV Hypoallergenics Eye Serum

This is my first time trying an eye serum. I religiously use an eye cream, and have been hesitant to try an eye serum because of an added product to my skincare regime. So far, I’ve been using it for about 3 days, and I like the fact that it’s not sticky. It still lets me feel like my skin doesn’t have heavy products. This serum helps eliminates dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness. Full size bottle $80.

This birchbox gets another 4 out of 5 Birchbox Besos.

    Great post on January’s Birchbox! Been meaning to do one myself… instead I’ll link this post :D I’m a huge fan of the Zoya polish in Megan, too! Although, the VMV Hypoallergenics Eye Serum, while feels awesome putting it on, for some reason made my eyelashes fall off. Wonder if anyone else experienced this? I never tried an undereye cream, so this was my first. I was really excited, too! I’m starting to get some gnarly dark circles and puffy eyes (getting old is FUN!) and thought this would be a great product to try. Can’t think of any other reason why my eyelashes would fall off. I’m also making an appointment with my doctor, as clumps of eyelashes falling out is not normal… :-/

    Again, great write-up! Thanks!

      Yikes! That’s definitely something you want to get checked out right away, today marks Day 4 of me using it, and you have to remember its an eye serum not cream, so you must be careful and not as liberal with how much you’re using and how often! I use Kiehls which I’m happy with for a normal eye cream! Let me know if the serum was the reason that happens to your lashes!! Take care!

        That makes sense, actually. I’m totally new to using under eye cream/serum, so I was pretty liberal in putting it on. I’ll wait to use again once my lashes have grown back, and just use a bit every two days. Maybe that’ll do the trick? Definitely will let ya know!

        I have a feeling that I’ll learn a lot from you :D

    What is the difference between eye cream and eye serum… I do eye cream religiously… but is eye serum something I should jump on?

      So in essence, they both do the same thing – they’re supposed to be preventative in terms of dark circles and fine lines – eye cream tends to be more hydrating and moisture based, whereas serum is used as the next step – more of if you have an issue with your undereyes you’d use it – less preventative more treatment oriented. My advice is if you haven’t started using a serum, don’t. Stick to a regular eye cream, you’re still young too – so right now just focus on making sure your undereyes are getting good hydration.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An
    excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
