First thing out of my box that I have got a lot of use out of is the Miss Jessie's Original Stretch Silkening Creme. This curl-enhancing cream stretches out each follicle for looser curls while adding volume and shine. Hydrolyzed wheat proteins and wheat amino acids fortify hair, while a team of moisturizing oils including coconut, jojoba, avocado, and olive add silkiness and softness. I don't know if this product really helps out with my curls, but I love to use it when I pull my hair back in a pony tail to smooth out all the little short hairs that like to stick out everywhere. I will be taking this product to the beach with me next week! The 'sample' that I received was 2 ounces, which retails for $7.99 on the Miss Jessie's Website.
The next product that I've got a lot of use out of is the
Schick Hydro Silk Razor. This razor has five blades and The water-activated moisturizing serum has marine extracts and shea butter and hydrates your skin. This razor retails fro $9.99
I also received a sample of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, which is a product from Japan. This product can be used on your body or your lips. Great for really dry patches of skin. It has a natural formula so it does not contain any artificial dyes, fragrances or petrolatum. The only thing that I do not like about this product is the smell. It has camphor in it, and I personally just don't like that smell. Yu-Be retails for $16 for a 1.25 oz tube.
I also received a sample of Viva La Juicy La Fleur. I have not worn this product yet since I am still trying to get my sinuses back to normal :/
There was also a full size Pixi Product in my box, it's the Pixi Beauty Lip and Line. First off I don't ever use lip liner, so this product was already half a miss for me. Then the color made it a total miss, the color I got was Orchid Rose, which to me looks brown, not a color that I will be wearing.
Did you get an August Birchbox? What were your hits and misses?
