Birchbox August 2011

Yay! It's that time of month again... Birchbox day!! A few quick pictures for you, then I'll tell you about my fav's!

What's in my Box: 

  • Blinc Eyeliner: This intrigues me! Apparently water won't wash it off, rubbing won't make it flake or smudge... It stays on until warm water and gentle pressure from your hands or a wash rag make it "slide" off! I will be testing this thoroughly! If I love it, this may just be my new eyeliner!
  • Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask: Interesting. I've heard a lot about Carol's Daughter products, but never tried any for myself! I'll be trying this tonight.
  • Pangea Organics Cleanser: This stuff smells amazing! I'll be trying this out tonight as well.
  • Wei Tibetan Chrysanthemum Correcting Eye Treatment Pads: Again, interesting. I'll give it a shot... After my eye heals up. (read more about this below)
  • Twistband hair tie: Okay, so other  than the eyeliner, believe it or not, this is the most exciting thing in this box for me. I. Love. Hairties. I always need them, and never have them! This little dude has gotten some bad rap from many BB'ers this month... but I have to say, I love it. It's a soft piece of elastic that's tied. Its thick enough that, supposedly, it won't crease your hair... it's gentle enough that it won't give you a headache or pull your hair out. I've had it in my hair for about 4 hours.... and this is the best hair tie ever!!! I know that sounds silly, but seriously. It rocks. My head doesn't hurt, and I haven't had to re-do my pony tail! So, if you don't want your Twistband, send 'em my way!! 

(About my eye... I got a bug in it! EWW! I think it was a gnat... I thought I got it out, and 3 hours later, I realized it was still in there, in the outer corner under my lower eyelid. My eye is really red and swollen.... I put some Visene in, and it STUNG like nobody's business. I'm assuming it's a corneal abrasion, so I'll see how it feels tomorrow. :( Still freaked out I had a BUG in my EYEBALL for THREE HOURS.  )


  1. I'm intrigued by these twistband ties - everyone hates them but I'm curious to how good they are. I have extremely thick hair so I go through hair ties like there's no tomorrow as they stretch out of shape easily all fall out of my hair by lunchtime :(

    Really sorry about the bug ... I've had that happen to me before in my youth and it still freaks me out today

  2. GAH I paid for my birchbox on the first so I wont be getting my first one until september i would have loved to try some of the stuff you got! sorry about the bug... Im overly paranoid about getting things in my eyes...

  3. carol's daughter is awesome. i have only tried their hair milk, but i am devoted now. it's the best thing ever for my curls. i looked at their monoi oil stuff too. i might have to ask for a sample the next time i am in sephora.

  4. I am so jealous of the cleanser, I LOVE Pangea Organics! I got a mascara from blinc, can't wait to try it out. And sorry, but I'm also in love with the hair tie, so you can't have mine. lol

  5. Ooh jealous of your eyeliner and eye pads! I got all different stuff.

  6. Haha, GROSS @ the bug in your eye! Protein ;p ... I got the same box as you! ... Maybe I'll end up sending you that hair tie ;p
