This month's Birchbox theme was Jet Set: "this month's box is devoted to products that will indulge your inner jetsetter, from hardy formulas that can last throughout a long-haul flight to imported finds that we've picked on our global adventures." I'm not jet setting anywhere this month but I do make frequent trips to California to visit my sister so I'm always in need of travel sized products.
- Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect (1.45 fl oz/ 6.7 fl oz $32) - "This gorgeous-smelling leave-in treatment detangles and defrizes with nutrient-rich botanicals, while built-in UV filters keep strands protected." I didn't think it smelled all that great.
- beautyblender blendercleanser (full size $17.95) - I used a beautyblender sponge awhile ago and wasn't impressed. Not sure how this cleaner helps since I don't own one. Perhaps I could use it to clean my makeup brushes?
- theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen (.04 fl oz $17) - Two-in-one lip and cheek stain.
- Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive & Uniform Color Towlettes (2 packs of 1 towlette/ Pack of 8 $14.99) - Provides a natural and uniform looking tan in 2 hours. Obtain a darker tone that will last longer.
Apparently this tiny bottle is full size. It looks really dark but actually comes a great rosy color. Reminds me of Stila's Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain, which is $24 for .08 fl oz.
I've only heard of the Comodynes brand because of the makeup remover wipes I reviewed. I like that these towlettes didn't smell like most self tanners do. I prefer the towlette application than lotion because you have to sit around and wait for lotion to dry. It definitely started to show color in a few hours; however, it kept getting darker. They have another shade "Natural and Uniform," which I want to try since I think that would look more natural on my fair skin.
We all received this plastic bag that is supposed to store all your travel size liquids from tili. Pack of 9-12 costs $8.49 - $9.49. I'd definitely use this but not sure it will fit all of my beauty products.
They also threw in a Birchbox Man product, I received John Varvatos Star USA cologne sample. Notes included: Red Ginger Essence From Laos, Juniper Berries and Cedrat From Sicily, Blue Spruce, Green Cardamom, Osmanthus, Vetyvert, Belambre, and Tonka Bean From Venezuela.
