Back to school for the Birchbox
Beauty products and brands THE box
This September Birchbox is in collaboration with ELLE magazine. In addition to the box, ELLE offers us 2 months of subscription and M.A.C a preloaded gift card of 15 €.
A rather generous box for back to school !
Here are the products and my crash test:
Soap of shower
The product: Natural liquid soap made with Provence olive oil and coconut oil. A silky and soft formula that slips and cleans, leaving your skin supple and softened. They are handcrafted in small batches (in soap pots) and not mass-produced industrially in chemical bins. Made in Provence. Composed of 97% of ingredients of natural origin.
Scents: Neroli Light, Amber Maquis, Olive Rose, Lavender Honey and Summer Fig
My crash test: I love the smell, I had NEROLI, it’s one of my favorite scents! Otherwise it’s natural mild soap, perfect for waking up gently in the morning shower.
Face mask honey & organic pollen
The Product: 100% natural, this ultra moisturizing and nourishing mask regenerates even the most dehydrated and weakened skins. Rich in honey, pollen, vegetable oil and glycerin, it leaves the skin supple, hydrated and deeply nourished. 100% of the ingredients are of natural origin. 51% of the ingredients are organic.
Certified Cosmos Organic by Ecocert. 0% Parabens, 0% Silicones, 0% Phenoxyethanol, 0% Phthalates, 0% Mineral Oils.
My crash test: I like it to be an organic mask, the smell is nice and it holds its promise of hydration! Crash-test succeeded 😉
Super Powers Bewitching Oil
“Wonder Woman’s Secret: The Golden Drop at Super Powers®”
The Product: The Garancia Laboratory innovates by creating a Super Powers® dry face oil: Plumping + Nourishing + Firming + Soothing. This fusion of 13 actives, combining virtuous oils with firming boswellic acid and a soothing vitamin complex, is suitable for all dry skin but also for atopic skin. Innovation: action on Klotho protein, termed “longevity” by scientists. Tested in vitro, the selected Lentiscus Pistachio Tears extract increases the synthesis of the Klotho protein: the fibroblasts of the 54-year-old subjects treated with the extract have a similar rate of Klotho to that of the untreated 37-year-old subjects.
My crash test: Know that I love the brand Garancia, I already have several products of the brand, all very effective and I like the innovations in the composition of their products and storytelling of the brand very “magic & sorcery ” 😉
I did not have this dry oil for the face, a priori oils is not my thing, but I must admit that it penetrates very quickly and leaves a soft skin.
The product: Leave-in care with light formula that preserves the radiance of color. Protects against oxidation caused by UV, pollution, and damage caused by heating accessories. ArganIDTM technology, with its argan oil microcapsules, repairs and tightens the cuticle to protect the color. The hair is easy to disentangle, soft and shiny.
My crash test: Already a fan of the brand, I tested this protective mist … good the product is nice to use but does it have a real effect on my hair I do not know …
The product: Ultra-pigmented rich lipstick, matte finish without gloss. Its moisturizing creamy texture provides a matte finish without drying out the lips. Benefits: – Matte finish – Long lasting – Ultra pigmented – No transfer – Easy application – Does not dry out
Shades: Brown (Antique Velvet), Orange (Chili, Tropic Tonic), Red (Chile, D For Danger, Diva, Lady Danger, Mangrove, Matte, Red Rock, Russian Red, Studded Kiss), Purple (Heroine), Beige – Nude (Honey Love, Velvet Teddy), Pink (Honey Love, Sexy Kinda, Mehr, Pink Plaid, Please Me, Really Me Muted, Whirl)
My crash test: JACKPOT! I love the red M.A.C and I received the color “Mehr” which is an old rose that I do not already have and that suits me 🙂
I am rather very pleasantly surprised by this box as I love all the products, in short I remain a subscriber 🙂
At the next box!
