Another month, another Birchbox.
I am pretty excited about this month's samples, so let's get right to it!
Benefit the POREfessional; Instant Wipeout Pore Cleansing Mask. Say that ten times fast. I can get rather oily skin so I thought this would be a good product. I am not a fan. The mask smells heavily of rubbing alcohol and really dried out my skin after use. The liquid on the mask was so strong it also really irritated my eyes. I would much rather use a Biore nose strip than go through that again.
Benefit the POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel. I have used a product similar to this and I liked it. Hopefully it is better than the mask. Regardless, I will be sure to give this a go.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I have used this product before and I do really like it. It smells good and gets the job done, but nothing beats my fav dry shampoo, Klorane.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator. I don't often use a highlighter, but I have been noticing a beauty trick that seems pretty popular these days: Mixing your highlighter and foundation in one! The full-size of this product is a pen-like applicator so that might not work for this beauty trick, but I am looking forward to trying this out on my next night out.
Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio. I received this trio in Filter. The colors are really pretty, but just not colors I use. I tend to go more neutral with creams and golds.
Not Soap, Radio Body Wash. I have used this brand before and I really like. The smells are very strong without being overwhelming. I like to use this for my morning shower, it really wakes up my scenes and I feel more alert and ready for the day afterwards. Strange, but true.
