Taking a break from Fashion Week coverage to bring you this month's Birchbox goodies! The theme was Red Carpet Ready in honor of the upcoming Academy Awards (seems like everyone is creating an Oscar-themed box this month). "In honor of all the nominees and winners... we've put together an assortment of products worthy of the red carpet." Here's what I received:
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Leave in Conditioner (full size $10.95) | Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm SPF 25 (.1 fl oz/1.69 $36) | Color Club Nail Polish in Wild Cactus (.25 fl oz/full size $10) | Juicy Couture Couture La La Eau de Parfum spray (.05 fl oz/1.7 oz $70) | Extra: Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Square
I liked the bottle design but found it kind of odd that there was no website for the brand. According to Birchbox's website (where you can buy the product) "This paraden- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles (the microscopic scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair). It also smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz, while safeguarding color and adding shine. Lastly, it provides protection against UV rays and heat. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent." I liked this spray, it left my hair feeling soft but not sure I can attest to the detangling part since my hair doesn't have that issue.
Always love getting a nail polish in my Birchbox. This Color Club polish is an emerald green which is not quite a color I was looking to add to my collection so will probably be passing this along.
Couture La La blends bright sparkling mandarin with bold white florals for a fragrance experience that captures the essence of femininity and daring allure of the unexpected. Juicy Couture perfumes are considered one notch above Bath & Body work perfumes but I like them *hump* I like fruity/floral scents and Couture La La isn't an overwhelming fragrance, which I like.
