Product Review: Cupcakes and Cashmere for Birchbox

Product Review: Cupcakes and Cashmere for Birchbox

When I read that my favourite blogger Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere was doing the May edition of BIRCHBOX I signed up right away.  With summer coming up I thought it would be great to have mini-sizes for weekend trips to the cabin and for my beach bag!  Take a look below at the different products I tried out last month.

1. Not Soap, Radio | Joy Inducing Body Wash

At First Glance: Cute packaging!   

Noteworthy: Smells amazing and is hydrating.

Currently: Almost Finished, thinking about ordering a full size.

2. Essential Elements | Wake Up Rosemary Body Lotion

At First Glance: Don't like the twist off cap, might be hard to get the product out.

Noteworthy: Extremely soothing and moisturizing, also love the mint scent, very refreshing.

Currently: Using when I want to pamper my skin.

3. Laqa & Co. | Sheer Lip Lube Pencil - Shade Menatour

At First Glance: Great colour and packaging.

Noteworthy: Even though this is a sheer lip pencil you can build the colour for a more opaque look.  When first applied it has a mint tingle on lips, (in a good way).

Currently: Using when I want to brighten up my makeup look.

4. Number 4 | Non-Aerosol Hairspray

At First Glance: Hmmmm it isn't Aerosol???

Noteworthy: Okay hold, doesn't get crunchy and sprays evenly.

Currently: Hardly used, in my bag incase I need a hair touch-up.

5. Benefit Cosmetics | It's Potent! Eye Cream

At First Glance: Yay Benefit!  

Noteworthy: Wears well under makeup and does help brighten the eye a bit.

Currently: Slightly used.  I keep forgetting I have it, (like every other eye cream in my bathroom)!
