My April BirchBox came in a couple weeks ago. I hadn't really gotten around to trying out the products until today.

Here is what came in the box.
  • Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Mirenesse Glossy Kiss - Red
  • Supergoop! Anti-Aging Eye Cream
  • Kusmi Tea Paris
  • Skin & Co Bagnodoccia Body Gel

Oribe Shampo & Conditioner - $37 and $39 each.

I tried one of each of these in my shower this morning. The smell is really light, almost floral. It didn't lather as much as I'd like. I have super thick, medium-length hair so I like to know that all of my hair gets covered. I'm going to stick with my usual shampoo.

Skin & Co Bagnodoccia Body Gel

I used this in my morning shower as well. At first the scent was not impressing. It smelled like a stuffy old lady. But the gel is actually pretty nice. A little goes a long way and it doesn't feel too greasy. 

Supergoop! Anti-Aging Eye Cream

This product is for the delicate skin around your eyes. I typically just use my normal face moisturizer on this area. The only thing my normal stuff is missing is SPF. This Supergoop! has SPF 37. Something us Ginger Kids need! Honestly, I probably wouldn't buy this product. The price and the fact that I'm only suppose to use this on a small part of my face doesn't make it worth it to me.    

Kusmi Tea Paris
$25.95 - 5 Mini Tea Tins
I don't like tea. To me, it tastes like dirt water. So The Hubbo offered to try one of these for me since he likes coffee and tea. He tried Sweet Love (pink package). Is smelled like Christmas in a cup! 

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss - Red


I haven't tried this product. I have a good reason though I promise. Red isn't really a makeup color I wear. I'd rather give this away to a friend who will look better in this color. Any takers?

Product Update!

TIGI Catwalk Session Finishing Spray
I got this hairspray in my February Birchbox. I put it in my bathroom and have been using it here and there to control some crazy ginger-colored locks that like to stand straight up around my hair line. I really like it. I can spray it on and comb my hair to style it and it gives me just enough hold to keep the craziness under control. 

Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo
This dry shampoo came in my March Birchbox. I tried it once and haven't tried it again. The directions say to use this to extend your style without having to wash your hair for a day or two. So basically it makes your hair look less greasy. So you spray it on your hair at the roots. You let it sit for a couple minutes and it turns white. Then you are supposed to comb your hair into your desired style. What they don't say is that you hair will feel totally gross like you have a TON of hair product in it. Ugh it was so gross feeling. I'm really not sure that it looked any better. In other words, I'm not a fan. I'll just keep on washing my hair the normal way to keep it clean.
