#Birchbox Unboxing and Review Featuring #Amika: , #HarveyPrince, #Jurlique, #Number4Hair


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger) 
#Birchbox is a monthly subscription box  ( $10 US) and beauty company!! I have been Birchbox subscriber for three years which is packed with health, skincare, beauty, and hair samples to try and buy!! The theme for this #MarchBirchbox  is "creativity"!!

The picture above is my curated March Birchbox (BB) based on my personal profile!!! I filled out the card for "I feel MOST CREATIVE when I " with my answer, "Enjoying Art time with Nathan"!!! To those who experience Autism in the community, I have CELEBRATED our bonding of my 10 yr old son, Nathan, when he wanted to do more Arts and Crafts and now collecting Huge amount of ARTWORK !!! Inside are the five samples that I received and tried inside my March Birchbox:

Harvey Prince Signature ($55 full-size)
Amika: Bombshell Blowout Spray ($24 full-size)
Number 4  Clarifying Shampoo ($32-72 full-size)  PLUS bonus Reconstructing Masque ($58 full-size)
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum ($54 full-size)
Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Highlighter ($14 full-size)

I tried  Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Highlighter sample first on my facial skin!! I was disappointed that Jelly Pong highlighter was not good fit for my skin tone (I have light to medium African American skin which gives me a problem for trying out makeup formulas including foundations/concealers/and highlighters). 

Next, I tried  Harvey Prince Signature sample which I  instantly loved  with its notes of "pink grapefruit, Hawaiian Jasmine, and plush patchouli" ingredients. There is not a scent that I don't love from Harvey Prince via Birchbox!!!

 I tried  Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum, which is also a brand that I love from Birchbox, which I tried after cleansing my skin!! I enjoyed the rose scent as I applied to my face & neck areas morning and night as it suggested before my usual moisturizers!! 

I tried both  Number 4  Clarifying Shampoo PLUS bonus Reconstructing Masque on my long, relaxed hair!! I instantly loved the performance and light smell of the products!!

After towel drying, I used the Amika: Bombshell Blowout Spray and ONLY this product so I can judge the results on hair (usually I add 2 more pre-style products to my relaxer hair after shampoo)!! I sprayed into each divide section, comb, then use my straightening attachment on my blowdryer!! I love the results of my hair as how straight and non-frizzy my hair turned out!!! 

Out of the five samples, I loved the Harvey Prince perfume, Amika Blowout Spray, Jurlique Serum, and No. 4 Shampoo & Masque!!  I feel the Jelly highligher is a better fit for light skin tones but now for my skin tone!! I give my March Birchbox  "4 out of 5" of the samples that I have tried and enjoyed!!! Can't wait for my April Birchbox :)

Until next time...
