Birchbox: October 2012
- Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel
- theBalm cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer
- Lucy B. Cosmetics Roll On Perfume Oil Duo
- Vitivia Vitamin capsules
- LUNA Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter
I only used two of the products that were in this box: The LUNA bar and theBalm highlighter.
The Ouidad gel that I received in this box was the same sample that I had received free with my Sephora purchase, but in a larger size (as seen on the bottom left photo). I just had no need to use it, especially being from the Bay Area, it doesn't get that humid in the area I live, so there really wasn't a need to try it. However, I don't mind holding onto it if I ever do travel out of town and need a quick fix.
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer has a nice sheer glow to it. It doesn't stand out that much, and isn't glittery. Just a slight shimmer. I used it for the first time during my sisters wedding and you can barely see it, but that could be on my part since I didn't want to overdo it, especially using it for the first time. Maybe I should have trialed it beforehand haha.
As for the LUNA bar, it's just like any other LUNA bar, but didn't have the chocolate bottom. It was more of just a regular granola bar. I had taken this sample with me in my clutch during my sisters wedding since I needed some sort of snack in between all the chaos. It was pretty tasty, very peanut buttery, but it wasn't really anything that would stand out.
