Purchase Site: Birchbox
Reason: Using up my Birchbox points!
I had 500 points to use up on Birchbox, and I decided that I would spend it in July before they deleted the whole points system.
These are my holy grail [HG] socks! They do not fall down, and they’re squishy and wonderful feeling.
Sidebar: I am watching Jane the Virgin, and in this episode her advisor tells her that her romance novel has to pass the Bechdel test, then Jane tries to apply it to her life and fails miserably. Now I’m trying to apply it to this post and HERE’S A MAN ALREADY! Hehe.
I got this as a sample in Birchbox, and really liked it. This pencil works much better with the brush!!
I’ve been drooling over these for a while, and decided to get one for use as my gym bag. It’s mildly smaller than I expected, and I also was disappointed to see there wasn’t a zipper. So, there’s not much room for my foldable yoga mat, clothes, and shoes. Ah well. I still like it!!
Rise and Shine Box: $10, free with $50+ purchase
When I saw this was available in the Birchbox bonus shop, I was like “holdup stupid ‘$10’ two pack bonus box! I’m getting this way more awesome sample box instead!!” Pnut got the box for her curated box choice this month, so I shall direct thee to her review here.
Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion: I can always use more face scrubs!
Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil: I’ll toss this in my bag for those gray days.
Elizabeth Mott – It’s SO BIG Mascara: How big, Pnut?? I’ll hold on to this one.
Klorane Soothing Eyepatches: I am a big fan of the Klorane eyepatches,
Living Proof Styling Cream, plus bonus Shampoo and Conditioner: Anyone know if these are for curly girlies??
Verdict: Overall I think I spent $16.99, and that includes $5 on shipping and $5.99 on tax. Pretty good haul!! I got the Milk eyeliner in a BB one month, which led me to saving it to buy, plus I’ve been eyeing the BAGGU bag so that had been in my cart, and finally the socks I j’adore and always have them in my cart. So, many things led to another in this purchase.
What did you spend your remaining BB points on? Also, do you watch or read anything that passes the Bechdel test? If so, let us know!
Disclosure: I purchased these items with Birchbox points and my own dolladollabills.
