Weekend Update and Something New

We celebrated Drew's graduation this weekend.  Success!  Food galore and the cupcakes were yummo!

Birchbox, know about it?  You should.  For just $10 a month you get to sample different types of high end beauty products.  I've been reading about it on a few different blogs recently and was really curious what this thing was all about. So...I signed up!  Here's a look at August's box...



June Jacobs: Papaya Purifying Mask.  I've used it once already and LOVE IT.  Super soft skin afterwards

Ouidad:  Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel.  I just used this in my hair tonight after showering.  So far so good!  No messy sticky feeling at all. 

Shaveworks: The Cool Fix.  Helps reduce pumps, ingrown hairs, and other shaving monsters. I'm SUPER excited about this. I've been searching for something like this...hope it makes my dreams come true.

Smashbox Cosmetics: Photo Finish Foundation Primer.  AH-MAZING!  My skin is always so oily within the first few hours of the day. This stuff works! I will definitely buy more once my sample is out.

Your dress is so pretty, love the print.

I just got my first Birchbox this month and I got the same stuff as you. I've been meaning to do a post about it but haven't had a chance yet. I did use the mask once as well and it was great with my super sensitive skin. Can't wait for the next box :)
