Birchbox October

birchbox 001

A little bright spot in my week… when I came home to see my Birchbox had arrived.  It’s like Christmas! …only a tiny, trial-size version..but you get my drift.

This month is all about GOOP.  Yeah, I didn’t get it either. 

Goop is a website, not something you put in your hair. Who would’ve thunk it.

If you would like to see what it is all about … www.goop.com

Supposedly it is a website for lifestyle inspiration.  Recipes, city guides, products, etc.  They put together an essential must-try pack for Birchbox and now I am going to share it with you..

Oh, one more thing…I got smart..hehe…and took a picture of the little card that explains all the products so I don’t have to type it all out.  I know…genius. So, at the end of this post, if you want prices, extra info, or whatever, it will be on the little card. You’re welcome.

First up..

A FULL SIZE bottle of Essie polish!!  I love Essie polish.  I truly believe it is the best polish for natural nails that is on the market.  Love, Love, Love it.  This color is called “Lady Like”, so obviously it was named after me.  It is a great neutral shade with a hint of pink.  I love neutral shades on hands because they go with everything and aren’t too conspicuous.

  I like to save the crazy stuff for my toes.

..polish, that is.

  Forget I said anything.

Next..

More sunscreen…blah.  It’s supposed to do what the other 350 sunscreens that I have received are supposed to do.  Make me beautiful, youthful, and glowing.  I’m starting to feel like they are trying to tell me something here.  Maybe next time they should just send me a syringe of Botox and get it over with.

I’ve used this stuff already and really like it.  My lips were super chapped from the dry hospital air after 5 days so I needed something pronto.  I smeared some of this on, and by the next morning, my lips were born again.  Cons:  No good smell or flavor.  But I guess since I’m not 10 years old anymore, I can live with it. 

I just realized that 10 years olds have it made.

Eye cream..  see above paragraph about the sunscreen.  Geesh.

Umm….  GROSS.  That’s all.  Just gross.

Gross with Lemon.

Lemon grossness.

Zesty mega gross.

1.69 Oz of nasty.

You get my drift.

And in case you didn’t get it…I don’t like it very much.

 

 

….and as promised..the info..

I’m so smart, I’m dangerous.

 

I hope you have a great evening.

Val

p.s. Luna Lemon Zest is 15 bars of gross  …just in case you didn’t get it the first time.
