This month, my Birchbox is filled with products that are perfect for travel. Some are small, so they'll fit perfectly into your carry-on bag and some are multi-purpose, so you won't have to bring as many other products with you on your trip. Ok, time to see what I got!
Kate Spade Twirl-This scent has top notes of watermelon, blackberry, and red current. The middle layer is made up of orange blossom, jasmine, and magnolia and the bottom layer is made up of musk and French macaroons. It's described as being a cheerful and flirty scent. I actually like this perfume a lot more than I thought I would. It's a good mix of fruity and floral notes and isn't too strong and sophisticated. I don't think that I like it enough to buy a full size bottle, but I'm sure I'll finish the sample.
Laura Geller Baked Blush N' Brighten-This powder is made in Italy and can be used as both a blush and a highlight. The marbled side of the powder looks like a light pink color in the compact, but it's actually more of a peachy color on the skin. The lighter/highlight side of the powder leaves a nice light sheen on the skin. I haven't actually used this on my face yet, but when I swatched it on my hand, both sides were very pigmented. The one negative to this product is that it has a lot of shimmer/sparkles in it. I usually try to use matte blushes, but I'll still use this one. Of all the products I got this month, this one is probably my favorite. Oh and the one in my box is full size, which normally costs $29.50 and I paid $10!
Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra Comfortable Body Cream-This cream is imported from Paris and is made up of, among other things, honey and macadamia nut oil. It's supposed to be good for dry and sensitive skin because it's full of naturally hydrating ingredients. I've used this a few times and it did feel silky smooth when I first put it on my hands, but after a few minutes that feeling was gone. The cream wasn't greasy though and it felt very light on my hands. The scent of it wasn't very strong, but what I could smell wasn't very pleasant. I'll definitely use the tube up, but wouldn't buy a full size bottle of it.
Sircuit Cosmeceuticals Molecular Mist-This mist uses heavy water to keep the skin hydrated all day long. It's supposed to prevent dryness and dehydration and can be used to set makeup or just to refresh the face. I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to products like these (I know Evian also makes a mineral water spray that's sold at Sephora). I feel like it's basically just water in a bottle sold at a ridiculously high price. I didn't find that my makeup stayed on any longer than it usually does when I used this and my face didn't feel any more moisturized than normal. I wouldn't buy this product or any other product like it at full price.
Bonus: Deborah Lippmann Stripper To Go Nail Lacquer Removers-I haven't used these yet, but I've heard great things about them and I think they'll be great to take on trips.
