Birchbox Haulage

  I love my Birchbox boxes and I LOVE their point system, so far I haven't really taken advantage of it THAT much. By this I mean, I haven't had a big order completely paid with points. And those points are the reason why I'd rather buy from the Birchbox shop rather than other sites, if the product I'm looking for is sold there, of course.

 I've heard wonders about the two main products I bought and that's why I got them, the reviews were amazing!

 This "haul" is two different orders that came within like a month of each other, but I still think it counts! haha



 I submitted this order with the BBLEARNVEST code, which I think doesn't work anymore and ended up paying only $28.43! Pretty good, considering it should have been $41.90 S&H and taxes!




Shea Terra - Rose Hips Black Soap: I've heard wonders about this product, so far I haven't gotten any of the long term results I've read about, but it definitely leaves my skin super smooth after using it. If you want an in depth review on this, let me know :) 


Chuao - Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod: This, I can talk about haha! I love several of these, specially the Firecracker, which is spicy and it has something like pop rocks, which I thought was fun. I didn't like the Potato Chip, Maple Bacon and Honeycomb, but the bf did like them. I loved the Spicy Maya, which as they name says, is spicy; the Salted Chocolate Crunch, which is quite interesting and the Sweet and Salty, which needs no description. I kinda wish I could try a chocolate that is JUST chocolate from them, because the chocolate itself, is super tasty(the little bit I could try between all those toppings(?)).


I got this pick-two, because of the generously size hand cream!

Alessandro - Cream Rich: I was really looking forward to this product, because I really needed the hand cream. Well, it was all a huge disappointment. I can't stand the smell, it's super stinky, at least for me. Also, it took forever to get absorbed by my skin and on top of that it would leave a greasy feeling! On top of all that still, it would create a film type thing on my hands that rubbed off into tiny little thingies(tiny bunches of product), for the lack of a better word. Terrible, this was all together a HUGE fail! A bunch of people seem to love it, according to Birchbox's reviews, but I definitely don't recommend it. My go to hand cream is Eucerin - Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme, which moisturizes my hands just great, without leaving a greasy feeling. Plus, you can get it for less than $6 in most major retailers and drug stores!

Kahina - Giving Beauty Argan Oil: I really loved this sample as a cuticle oil! I didn't dare to try it on my face and definitely wouldn't repurchase. I'd rather get the Josie Maran Argan Oil that I discovered thanks to February's Ipsy and I know it has no negative effect on my skin!




Miracle Skin - Hydroactive Microderm: I haven't tried this out yet, but the reviews on Birchbox are decent. Either way, this was a free sample! And the size is pretty generous!

TIGI - Catwalk Root Boost Spray: I loved this! It definitely gave me the volume I very much love. I will definitely repurchase this once I run out.


Finally got it!! Clarisonic Mia <3 There's a huge hype about this product and I just had to have it! I'm so super excited to see some long term results! The whole order ended up being $91.86 because I had a 20% off code and used 100 points. I know that I didn't save all that much, but honestly I just wanted the brush already! My plan was to save points until I had enough, but I just couldn't wait!


Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money, and this is my own personal opinion :)

  4. I have tried the Shea Terra Rose Hips before, it broke me out so I wasn't a fan of it.

  6. I am in the market for. Clarasonic!! I may try to get one with my VIB discount at Sephora this week! That's disappointing that the hand cream was so bad :( I'm really interested in hearing more about the black soap though! And I love the TIGI Root Boost! One of the best!

  7. I love my Clarisonic!!!! Only had it maybe a month and I can tell a HUGE difference. I may have to get the delicate scrubby heads but the one it came with will do fine until it's time to get new ones. But it has definitely helped with blackheads and my super dry skin! I just use my Cetaphil with it and it's magnificent! :-)
