It is that time of the month where I take a moment to review all three of my monthly box subscriptions! February is coming to an end and because I am on vacation in California (LA area), I decided to bring these products for me to test on the go!
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer has a great smell that's not too strong. It works well by moisturizing the skin and leaving it soft, but in the end I didn't find anything special about this particular product and I can't see myself purchasing this outside from receiving it for free samples or etc.
I don't normally wear blush because it's just mainly bronzer and highlight for me, but what's really interesting to the ARROW REVIVE Cooling Cheek Tint is the color for its natural rosie-blush look along with its applicator. The non-sample size is easy to use and has this pen-style packing that makes it very convenient to travel with! You can blend it into your foundation and look glamourous. The formula is oil-free which prevents it from leaving any residue and that unwanted greasy feeling. All of ARROW's products are vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.
Some people may love the smell of L'Artisan La Chasse Aux Papillons Eau de Toilette, but it definitely wasn't for me. It has a musky-like scent that also leaked so the whole box smelled like it. It can be a little overpowering making it not a desirable perfume for me. Let's just say my mom would probably like it more. ;)
The Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-in Conditioner works well for detangling and preventing frizz, but if you have thick hair it may not work that well for you as you may be forced to use a lot more than you'd like. The smell is nice but it doesn't cancel out the possibility of it looking oily or greasy so overall my recommendation on a scale of 1 to 10 is probably a 5.
POP Beauty Matte Velvet Lipstix Trio is one that claims to be long-lasting and nourishing for the lips. I personally think it was easy to apply on, but it smears easily, making it not-so-lasting for me. It's a size you can carry to re-apply but most of the time I don't reapply because I expect them to be long lasting. With this lipstick you definitely want to exfoliate and moisturize your lips. However the color was perfect for me (cozy crimson - deep magenta).
I love Birchbox but I feel like this month nothing hit me hard to die for. Hopefully next month is better and contains more products that I would definitely use.
