January Birchbox

Today couldn't have come fast enough!!! I feel so spoiled to get little presents in the mail every month. It's like my birthday!! :-) I got so used to Christmas and signing up for Birchbox and Julep Maven all in one month, I kind of expect it now. I am not let down with this month's supply of goodies let me tell ya!! One of them I ate already(just blame the pregnancy cravings lol). 

Now I just, like just got this in the mail. The only thing that I have tried was the edible sample lol. But I'm going to go through what I have received as my dedication to the service.

From left to right:

Just tried it. Smells very flowery to me. It reminds me of spring time. With all the blossoms coming to life and the warm rays of sunlight. Mmm I could imagine this forever...

This as described is the type A overachiever eye serum. It packs a punch to knock out puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. Use in the morning and evening under your eye for best results. 

This is, you guessed it, a night cream. It contains rice bran and cocoa. The rice bran in this moisturizer increases the elasticity in the skin. And the cocoa has caffeine which increases the circulation in the skin.

This nail color is part of the Feel Collection by Zoya. Zoya is a special company in that it produces without formaldehyde, toluene or dibutyl phthalate. Formaldehyde as we know is used mostly in preserving specimens for dissection. But here is a link explaining the many everyday uses of formaldehyde. Uses of formaldehyde.

Toluene is a clear, water-insoluble liquid with the typical smell of paint thinners. It is a solvent used in most common nail polishes. It is also used as an inhalant drug for it's intoxicating properties. But if inhaled can cause severe neurological damage. 

Dibutyl Phthalate is a plasticizer. It also serves as an additive to adhesives or printing inks. More information on Dibutyl Phthalate.

After reading up on all of this information. I think I'm going to stick with Zoya nail polish lol.

These yummy bars come in a variety of flavors and they really are tasty. The one I had was called Cherry Pie. These bars a healthy and nutritious for you too. Each bar has nine ingredients max. There are no nasty additives and they are vegan friendly too. The additional flavors are: Blueberry Muffin, Carrot Cake, Peanut Butter Cookie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. They're the perfect size to toss in your purse and grab to munch on when you're in a hunger bind.

  1. I just asked you about your box on fb, but now I see what you got! Nice haul! Our boxes are totally different beside the Juicy perfume. I agree, the scent is like a spring day out in a field of flowers. Very pretty. Can't wait to see a post on the zoya! Muah!
