New in ⎢ Birchbox



Back in June, I received a nice little Birchbox parcel with all of the new products available on their website. You know me, I love a good ol' goodie bag. Never makes me happier to try out new products haha! I'm not subscribed to Birchbox - or to any other boxes for that matter - just because I don't find that convenient for me. I think it's a nice thing to do for a birthday present - a 3 month subscription!  But for me, I'd rather buy the whole sized product right away after doing all my little online research previously of course. That's what I actually like about Birchbox, it's that you get to order full size products on their website and they have so many products to chose from - some brands quite hard to find or totally unknown in the european market. 

My favorites products from this little goodie bag was this gorgeous LOLA Barcelona nail polish in Rambla (here). Perfect coral summer shade and super easy to apply. I had never heard of this brand before, so I was glad to actually try it. I also am so in love with my SKINDINAVIA finishing setting spray (here) : I have been wanting to try this for ages and I didn't know where to buy it. It's as amazing as I thought it would be : it really helps my make up to last all day. You must try it! 

I also have really enjoyed the LIERAC Luminescence Serum (here), I use this in the morning before applying my makeup to give that extra base glow. This stuff is amazing, it has a pearly shade that gives that extra glow. I won't be using that as a night routine as I'm not sure it's as hydrating as an other serum would be. 

The BE FINE lip scrub (here)is the weirdest scrub I have ever used. It's so thick and creamy: when you apply you look like a creepy clown but the result is quite good. It leaves your lips smooth and moisturized. If you like a rough lip scrub...this one is not for you, it's extra gentle! 

The last product I have used is the BIONIKE Defence Tolerance (here).  The texture of this face cleanser is so unique, it's like a gel water. I have been enjoying this as a makeup remover but it's not enough on its own, I always have to clean wash my face after to make sure it's 100% clean. 

I haven't tried the HIP Shampoo (here) and the KONJAC sponge (here) yet... has anyone tried it before? 
I'm afraid it will be too harsh for my skin!

XO,MARILOU
