Month

June 2015

Unboxing: June 2015 Birchbox 

I was disappointed with last month’s Birchbox. Honestly, I just resubscribed because I finally got my free Beautyblender sponge.


So I didn’t expect too much this month…

  

Each box this month has a unique code that you can use to enter on birchbox.com/SayYes wherein you can get discounts, points and other goodies.

This looks promising. There are 6 products all in all.

Two of my least favorite colors: Pink and Orange. But they do look good for summer so I can see past that.

  

SARAHPOTEMPA Darby Clip
I absolutely love this! This is the “lifestyle extra” included in my box this month. I have thin hair and this clip can hold all of my hair into a bun for that easy-I-dont-care-wearing-my-PJs hairstyle. I know you’re supposed to use this for sectioning when your styling your hair but so far, what I thought of is the most practical one.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

First sentence on the “Directions”… “This is not a mask.” Fiiiine, snappy much!? 😅 It says on the box that it is an acid-free peel that you massage to your face until small bead-like dead skin forms. This reminds me so much of this Japanese product, Cure Natural Aqua Gel, that I got on my September 2013 BDJ Box (a subscription box in the Philippines).

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology


That name is a mouthful! But I appreciate sunscreen products anytime! Supergoop is popular for their sunscreen products so I am looking forward in bringing this to my trip to California next month.

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner

Because everyone needs an indigo eyeliner when they’re swimming…

Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum

Even if I don’t know how to pronounce this product, I still like perfume samples so this is a thumbs-up for me.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

I thought it was too dark for my skin but it blended well on the back of my hand as I was swatching it so let’s see when I use this on my face.

Overall Impression

So, am I saying YES to June 2015 Birchbox? Yes, I’m satisfied. I can see myself trying everything on this box.

Unboxing: Too Faced Cosmetics Mini Haul

Remember this? I got my order this week and I’m so excited to show them to you.


  

The sides of the box…  

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

This is my first eyeshadow primer since I don’t usually wear eyeshadow anyway. I heard a lot of good things about this one so I can’t wait to use this not only for my Too Faced eyeshadow palette but also for my new BH Cosmetics eyeshadow.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection

I heard about this palette first from “From Head To Toe” beauty blogger/vlogger then eventually, it seems like this palette has become  everyone’s must-have.

    

They also included a cheat sheet/tutorial on how to create different looks using this palette.

      

I will try my best to try one of these! 😅

I heard that they made some changes with the packaging. There were some complaints on how it looked so bulky and hollow. However I can say that the new packaging is sleeker and made out of durable tin can, or plastic, I’m a bit confused on what’s it made out of but I like it. I’m gearing toward it being a metal though.

So why chocolate? Besides that it’s made with 100% cocoa that makes chocolates, it also smells like cocoa! I want to eat it! When I first showed it to my friend who doesn’t wear make-up, she really thought it was a real chocolate before I opened the packaging!

  

The colors are so lovely!

The samples

This is their new foundation that will be launched on June 15.

I will use this first before using the full size that I just bought.

The Pocket Damage

    

You can never go wrong with free shipping and a discount!

Wish me luck! Hopefully I can pull this off!

Unboxing: BH Cosmetics Mini Haul

Remember my post about the BH Cosmetics promo? I got what I ordered online around two weeks ago but something else was needed to be announced urgently that day (aka the Too Faced Sale post) so this unboxing has been moved today.

BH Cosmetics has been popular for some time now in YouTube and several blogs. They are affordable and offer a lot of options especially with their eyeshadow palettes. So when they offered free shipping and free palette, it was time for me to board the ship!


    

Special Occasion 39 Color Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

          
I am in love with this palette! The blush palette already has highlighter and bronzer. The blushes are all pigmented and wearable.

The eyeshadow portion has matte and shimmer. I can see myself creating different looks out of these, from daytime to nighttime make-up.

First Edition – 120 Eyeshadow Palette

    

1 out of 120 was broken
        
Honestly, I was overwhelmed with all these colors! Some of them quite look alike but I haven’t tried them yet so I will leave my final judgment on a later post, with swatches and make-up looks.

The Mystery Eyeshadow Palette: BH Party Girl After Hours

I intentionally did not open this yet. I checked the YouTube first and images online. I think the Special Occasion will suffice so I’m thinking of giving this to my niece.

The Pocket Damage


Not so damaging at all…

So that’s my first BH Cosmetics haul. I will try to post their swatches and some looks that an eyeshadow noob like me can cook up. 😅😅😅

Samples For May 2015

Hello, June!!! We’re already halfway done with 2015 and I am enjoying every day of this year!

As we say goodbye to May (by the way, my second name is “May”, ugh, that people think I was born in May), let me show you my sample finds for last month. I am a newbie to this “hobby” but it sure is exhilarating when you find something that you really find interesting… for free!

Initially, I just browse the internet everyday for freebies to avoid boredom. But now, I can officially admit that I AM A SAMPLE HUNTER, a hunter who doesn’t get her hands dirty! Oops, I need a mani!

When I find a good deal… (Source: Taylor Swift’s stickers in Line chat app)
The samples I got vary; from food, beauty products, medicines and magazines. These are samples from the company without any purchase needed.

Twinnings Tea

Yummy!
Almost everyone I know prefers coffee than tea. Not me! I can drink a tea anytime, any day!

Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

It smells delicious!
One of the reasons that I like these freebies is coupons!

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion

I really got to try this!
More savings!

Allegra Antihistamine

Call me Little Miss Achoo! I sneeze like crazy, multiple times, when my allergies attack. My friends and family can’t stop themselves from counting the achoos! Sniff sniff… Antihistamines also help me not to have an anaphylactic shock when I eat something that I’m not supposed to (ehem, shrimp and crabs!).
Major score since this is what I take anyway for my allergies

I would like you to guess this one…

Say what? Am I being deployed? But I’m not a soldier, my husband is!

Heart attack! So this is what it is! Major props for their awesome creativity!
  
These are the Kotex samples inside the cute and well-thought box.
 

Nice packaging! I love the color combo!
  
These are pantiliners.
  
Kotex Security Long
  
Kotex Security Regular with Wings
    
These are their products. On the back, is another coupon. I asked my husband to redeem the coupon at Walmart. Awww, I love him! ❤️
 
But I guess it will be TOO MUCH if I also ask my husband to stick this on his car, right?! Hihihi…


Men’s Health Magazine

For my hubby since we’re both trying to live a healthier lifestyle… TRYING…
 

I will do my best to get more free samples and post my “treasure” hunting adventure here. If you know any other ways to get some, please tell us! But for me, I usually go to this website: http://freebies.about.com/od/householdproducts/tp/free-samples.htm

Have fun!
