#BeautyInBloom #LimitedEdition #MothersDay Box from #Birchbox Review


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

First off, I am soooooo late for this review and posting it on my blog/social media BUT will it not stop my readers from checking my humble review on this goodie box that I received close to Mother's Day with my Birchbox points!!

I already know what goodies that I will be receiving but when I opened this limited edition box I was still amazed by the amount of luxe goodies because you need a little "Me Time" after taking care of everyone and everything!! Below is a clear list of goodies:

Darphin Intral Toner

Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

Laura Geller Beauty Baked Color True Blush

Lollia Relax Shea Butter Handcreme

Mally Eye-Amplifying Shadow Liner

NEST Fragrances Grapefruit Classic Candle

NEST Fragrances Indigo Eau De Parfum

Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Laquer Hi-Speed Sonnet

stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

Umbra Prisma Tray

I am very selective about this Italian hair care brand mostly because of the scent and my dry, wavy/relaxed hair type but this Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion is an INSTANT HIT for this deluxe hair oil!! I tried a few drops at a time during and after blow drying my relaxed/new growth hair, massaging a few drop on my dry scalp plus freshens my hair, and just love the scent of this hair oil!! I see myself getting this luxe Italian salon brand in the future!!

This is my first experience trying out  NEST Fragrances Grapefruit Classic Candle and NEST Fragrances Indigo Eau De Parfum which is one of the reasons of getting this "Beauty in Bloom" box! Normally I don't buy "citrus" candles but I  know that this scent is great for lighting up in the bathroom or kitchen to get rid of certain odors but maybe I have been in a "fragrance rut" for candles and time to try something different! And the Indigo fragrance is different but in a good way and also complements the hand cream scent that I also received in this Limited Edition Box! I hope try out more NEST Fragrances and Candles in the future!

I just loving my  Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Laquer in "Hi-Speed Sonnet" which is pink lipgloss with gold glitter infused!! I love how this looks and feels on my lips especially for the summer time!! Thank you, Birchbox!

I love this refreshing  Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist on a hot Summer day which is just the right amount of water to cool off my skin and perfect rose scent, too!!

I just love a good hand cream on my dry hands and this Lollia Relax Shea Butter Hand Creme does just that with its Lavender scent! Plus, this scent compliments the NEST Fragrance Indigo which I have layered on my pulse areas for applying perfum!! I love to get this again in the future!!

I love a good toner after removing makeup and cleansing my skin which this  Darphin Intral Toner does really well that I can see the "fine dirt/makeup" particles that my makeup remover and skin cleanser left behind!! But this luxe toner is too expensive to get for everyday usage but don't mind getting this again in future Birchbox Limited Edition boxes!

This is my first experience trying Laura Geller Beauty Baked Color True Blush in "Catalina" in this "Beauty In Bloom" box and this pink shade was very light on my medium/tan skin tone!! I will continue to use it for a neutral day look but will try a different shade and/or formula in the future!

I wanted to try this  stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara for a while and that is one of the reasons that I got this Limited Edition box!! The wand doesn't have the amount of bristles that I personally want on a mascara wand and the formula is a little "wet" looking but it gave my lashes the right amount of volume after one coat!!  I will continue to use this mascara but I will want to try a different mascara with definition and volume from stila in the future!

I love using Mally Beauty cosmetics and absolutely love Mally Eye-Amplifying Shadow Liner in "Stone" which smoothly glide on my eye lids with no tugging nor pulling!! I love this shimmer taupe shade and will use it as part of my daily neutral day look!! Thank you Mally Beauty and Birchbox!!

This is only item that doesn't fit my personal lifestyle from the "Beauty In Bloom" Limited Edition box!! I love certain modern pieces but I am more of a "romantic/girly girl" and rather use a vanity tray from Dowton Abbey than this modern design vanity!! I left it in the box and will give it away to someone who love this geometric, modern design vanity!

My freshly shampoo and blow dry hair using this amazing Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion for my dry/relaxed/new growth long hair!!

My makeup look using  Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Laquer in "Hi-Speed Sonnet" for my lips, Laura Geller Beauty Baked Color True Blush for my checks, and Mally Eye-Amplifying Shadow Liner and stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara for my eyes from the "Beauty In Bloom" Limited Edition box!

I have enjoyed trying the latest beauty, hair, skin, and lifestyle items from my "Beauty In Bloom" Limited Edition Box from Birchbox for Mother's Day! This box makes a perfect gift for any woman who especially Expectant/New Moms, Caregivers, Care package or present, Bridal present, or just want a day of pampering with quality and luxe beauty items!!  

Until next time...

  6. This was a great box! Such eclectic items. Darphin used to be one of my favorite skincare brands, but it is soooo expensive. Glad you got it in your box. Love the lipgloss on you. It's a beautiful, summery shade. I'd like everything you got.
