Review for OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil - 1 month ago
At first I was really disappointed when this came in my Birchbox this month. 1) because it was leaky (thankfully B.B. put it in a baggy - clearly it’s been an issue before and 2) because Ouia tends to have beautifully scented but completely ineffective products. I’m pleased to say this one proved me wrong. The scent isn’t bad. It actually reminds me of my Grammy who always used things lightly scented of rose. I wouldn’t necessarily say it smells as good as some of their other products, but it’s pretty pleasant. I like it on my skin and I love it in my hair. I used hardly on my wet hair after my shower. There weren’t directions on use so I just pumped a squirt or two, rubbed it between my hands and concentrated on the ends. When my hair dried my waves were gorgeous and my hair was soft. I avoided my bangs and roots where I’m oily and had no problem. I also liked it as a body oil, which I prefer over lotion. I’m obsessed with Julep’s Beach Tonic but they discontinued it and I was wondering what I’d get to replace it once it runs out. I think this will likely be a fine substitute!

Review for Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum - 1 month ago
I received this in my Birchbox and I really like it. It’s French so it smells a little old lady like (most French products I’ve tried do, so I was expecting that). It wasn’t completely unpleasant and faded pretty quickly, although I think it would be so much better if it was unscented. I really like it. It felt moisturizing and softened my skin. It didn’t pill up under my moisturizer or congest my pores. I notice some people rated it lower claiming they didn’t like it as much as the moisturizer they currently use. Perhaps they have a struggle with reading labels or don’t actually know what a serum is, but this product is not a moisturizer. It’s a serum and as such cannot replace a moisturizer. I think it works really well and if it weren’t for the price and perfume like smell I’d probably buy it.

I was so excited to get this in my birchbox and try it. At first it was omg, this smells amazing, I can see this being my new fall fragrance. It was peppery but sweet, but then it quickly dried down to a soapy smell and then transitioned into old lady land. It's obviously high quality but I smell like a 60 year old after ten minutes of wearing it. So, won't be buying a full size.
Review for The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% Serum - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Use this at night if you want to wake up with a face as soft as a baby's butt. No joke. I haven't been using long enough to tell how well it fights aging, but given how great my skin feels after using it, my guess is it'll be great long term. Another winner by The Ordinary.

Review for Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Gel Eye Makeup Remover - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Got a Birchbox sample. This stuff isn't bad. Good texture, fairly easy too use. Does great on eyeshadow but doesn't have the chops to pull off all the stubborn mascara. I like that it's a gel, but don't think it's effective enough to want to purchase it.

Review for GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
This is a pretty decent moisturizing mask. The smell isn't unpleasant and I liked the texture. It wasn't life changing and at the price point I just can't see myself buying a full size. $69 for "pretty good"? Not for me.

Review for Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Gorgeous scent, easy to use and works pretty well. I actually prefer powder dry shampoos over aerosol but for a spray this works pretty well, although I can't speak to the waste factor as I haven't reached the end of the bottle. My only qualm is the price which I'd say is fairly ridiculous.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel - 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Review for: 03 Medium
I wasn't in the market for a new brow gel but when I got this in my birchbox I was smitten. It's subtle, which is hard to find. The brow gel I was using before was quite bold, which gave a more intense look which is great to use when I do theater, but not for a natural every day look. The subtlety of Benefits brow gel makes it look like you're not even wearing any, while covering greys and filling in bare spots.

Review for The Ordinary Serum Foundation - 3 months, 1 week ago
Everything I have tried by the Ordinary is exceptional and this foundation definitely passes muster. I love it! Great for daily wear, not too heavy and looks natural. I have combo/dry skin and this doesn't settle into my fine lines. And you can't beat the price! I even use it for theatrical productions, mixed with their full coverage foundation. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend in some soda or tonic water when you have tummy trouble or indigestion. This stuff is great to help you on the track to feeling better. I don't drink, but some people also recommend for hangovers.
