October Birchbox Review Part Deux

The last remaining products from my Birchbox are ready to be discussed! Here is a recap of the other products I reviewed and then the remaining two.

Miss Jessie's Crème de la Crème Conditioner - It's lightweight and it detangles. I'll be buying the full size product as soon as I need a new bottle of conditioner. 

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and Pure Muslin Cloth - It's gentle, mild, a little unusual in application, but totally worth the change. The cloth exfoliates with out being overly abrasive. I'll be adding this to my beauty routine and purchasing the starter kit ASAP.

ChapStick Hydration Lock - You can't go wrong with ChapStick. This has a place in my purse. 

POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer in Floating Rose

This lipgloss did not disappoint. It has a brush application, which was completely unexpected, but totally welcome. The hue, was perfect. It didn't go on too bright, so I didn't feel self conscious when it was on and it wasn't sticky. Not even a little bit. But that doesn't mean it cuts out the shine, because believe you me, it's there. The scent is mild and hardly noticeable, which also mean that the taste of it is basically nonexistent. It's the perfect POP of color. Verdict: It's a subtle shade of pink that will work with almost anyone and I'll be using this full size product frequently. 

Folle de Joie eau de parfum
Perfume is a very personal thing, so what works for one person isn't going to necessarily work for another. That said, besides having sensitive skin, I also have a sensitive nose. A perfume that doesn't work for me will instantly give me a headache or make me sick to my stomach. I may love the scent, but sometimes I can't wear it. Or sometimes it just doesn't work with your body chemistry. In this instance, I do love the scent and I can wear it. Win-win for me! The official description (seen below) fits me to a "t" since I'm a California girl and Paris won my heart over when I spent three weeks there in the winter of 2007. It's a great fragrance, but just like any other perfume, it's best to sample before committing. Verdict: I do enjoy the scent, but I want to make sure it suits me before putting it on my Christmas list.  

Derived from the ease of California’s sea scented beaches and romanticized by Parisian charm, Folle de Joie captures the carefree yet sophisticated JOIE lifestyle. The scent opens with a burst of freshness from an intimate blend of calming sweet citrus mixed and a light woodsy floral, giving way to playful hints of rich cognac. Folle De Joie’s mid notes of jasmine and rose add a feeling of Summer’s carefree essence while exotic warm base notes of spicy and rich wood and leather nuances broaden the seductive scent.

Well, that's all she wrote! Until next time!
