#birchboxbrag Vol. III

Beauty Blender Blender Cleanser Solid
Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Soft Brown
Beauty Protector Protect & Oil Argan Oil
Mystery Pack: Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair, Manna Kadar Lip Locked

Every few months, I like to cash in my BB points on some new things (or some sampled favourites). The rewards system is one of my favourite parts about Birchbox. Actually, I like everything about Birchbox-the well-curated boxes, the large community, the Birchbloggers program. There are a lot of perks. Anyway…with points, percent-off codes, and the freebie mystery pack, I got this haul for two-dollars.

I had been wanting to try the Beauty Blender Blender Cleanser Solid for awhile now, but $15 for a bar of soap-it just never made it to the cart, especially since I love the six-dollar Sonia Kashuk brush cleanser. I will have to do a brush-cleaning post soon. I feel like there are a million & one blog posts on the topic though, so let me know if you want there to be a million & two… I have to say the solid is great.  It gets deep into the sponge to truly deep clean; it also works great on your regular brushes. I am still testing it out-my biggest concern is how long the bar will last. Soap bars just seem is disintegrate on me, but the packaging has a little plastic strainer in it to keep it dry.

As you may know, I am all about the brows of late. I fell in love with the Anastasia Brow Whiz, but after trying the Dip Brow Pomade, I can’t imagine using anything else. It looks so natural- I got the same shade as I have in the Brow Whiz, Soft Brown. It lasts all day. I use it with an angled brush, and it’s surprisingly quick and easy to use. I start by using the spooly end of Brow Whiz and then just dip my brush into the cute little pot-which actually is not so little.

Isn’t it the best when you try a sample and just know you have discovered something awesome? Well, it’s bad when you don’t want to have to buy the full-size. A little vial of the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil got me hooked. Shiny, healthy hair. And it smells so good.

Mystery pack time-and it’s two things I have tried already. I guess they had a lot of extras from the Relax & Recharge box. I’m not complaining as it was one of my favs. Check out that box here. I can’t decide if I just want to use these samples again or share the silky hair and mauve lips with a friend.

What BB samples have you bought in full-size?
