Products I've been Introduced to by Birchbox

Birchbox is so freakin cool- I've been a member since almost the beginning and they have introduced me to some stuff that I just cannot live without now! What's really cool is that you can review each item in your box that month which translates into points to purchase full sized items in their store. I just scored an Oscar De la Renta perfume, a BB creme and a groovy lime eye pencil with my points! At $10 a month, still the best deal around on the sampler box market.

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint- I love this stuff! It's more than just a tinted moisturizer, it also gives your skin a pearly gleam for an absolutely lovely youthful, radiant appearance without the heaviness of a traditional foundation. To me it seems to be a little more moisturizing than a lot of tinted moisturizers that I've used and it does it in an oil free formula. This is kind of the love child of a tinted moisturizer and a BB Cream. It's layerable without giving your skin that plastic mask look and the pearly sparkle it gives is subtle enough to make you look younger without overdoing it on the glitter effect (not that I mind the occasional Ziggy Stardust glow, but it can be a bit much for everyday use!) It also comes in a ton of different shades, so there's one for everybody! A total Holy Grail item.

What is it: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint evens out imperfections and enhances skin tone with its light-diffusing multimineral formula. SPF 20 protects from UVA and UVB rays while vitamin E, ginseng, and gingko biloba leaf extract deliver antioxidants to skin, promoting a healthy, natural-looking glow. Oil-free and fragrance-free. Who is it for: All ages and skin types. Why is it different: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint is a lightweight formula that offers good, buildable coverage. Vitamins and botanicals deliver antioxidants to skin, while light-diffusing multimineral pigments even out skin tone, promoting a healthy, natural-looking, hydrated complexion. How do I use it: Apply to clean skin with fingertips. Layer for additional coverage. From Jouer Cosmetics.

Shiraz Jouer Moisturizing Lip Tint is a real heartbreaker. Apparently they only made the tinted version as a limited time deal, so if you want to find it, you'll have to go the Ebay route. Bastards! This is one of the best lip treatments I've ever used (which you can still buy in the nontinted version) and I love the idea of wearing a lipgloss that is also working double duty to give me fuller, plumper lips withouth the sting. And what a beautiful color! Why deprive the world of such awesomeness????????

BVLGARI Mon Jasmin Noir - I have always been nuts about Bulgari scents and this one is no exception. Their scents tend to be mature and sophisticated without being heavy or matronly. A deep floral with some powdery undertones that rests lightly on the skin. It has depth without being overwhelming and for me was my summer evening go to. The scent of a mysterious woman having a torrid liason on a steamy summer night..... And the deal I found?!?!?!?! Check it out, if you use the link below, you can get the 2.5 oz for theprice of the 1 oz!!!!!!! W@oot!

Erno Laszlo TranspHuse Night Serum smells FABULOUS, feels FABULOUS, and works FABULOUSLY. It BETTER for that price! When you wake up in the morning, your skin is literally transformed. What I wouldn't have given to have had this around to use before my wedding! It's like waking up with your skin from 10 years ago on your face.

A high concentration of glycosaminoglycans and the polypeptide MATRIXYL 3000 motivate collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Transform your skin to visibly tighten, reduce stress-induced damage and rejuvenate overnight. At night, skin recovers its natural healthy balance to boost defense mechanisms against the next day's environmental stress. A soothing lavender scent helps calm senses for a good night's slumber.

Archipelago Pomegranate Soap was such a giant disappointment. You would think that soap this expensive would be faboo, but it found it to be incredibly drying and really hard to actually get any soap from! Like I kept rubbing it all over my body and all I felt was water! Like I had to scrub for 5 times as long to get clean but it left my skin so dry and tight I was downright itching, even after lotion. This stuff is what they stock some of the ritziest joints in town with, but no thanks, I'll stick with my Briebella's Penguin Love soap.
