t's that time again... my October Birchbox
It's always fun to try out new samples of products, and although I was not happy to see tea and a food item in this month's box (I just don't feel like they belong in a beauty subscription box), I still got some great products!
This month, the theme was goop (as in goop.com
). For September, goop put together some essentials that they believe are worth trying. So let's see what I got.
~ DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum
~ Jouer Lip Enhancer
~ Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Eye
~ Kusmi Tea
~ LUNA Fiber
2 for $25.95
I have wanted this for awhile now so I'm glad I finally got it! This little miracle-working sponge blends my tinted moisturizer perfectly and I get a flawless application every time! I never thought a sponge would make a difference (I usually just use my fingers), but it really does help give me a sheer veil of coverage without over-applying, and it's even better when it's soaked in water beforehand. I also use it to help blend cream bronzer and/or blush so it doesn't streak. I love it.
DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizing Serum
$85.00 for 1.7 oz
DDF is a great brand and one that I trust for skincare. After using this product my skin seemed smoother, brighter, and I felt like it had a healthy appearance. I did, however, need an additional moisturizer since my skin was still a little tight (I have combination-to-dry skin that is more on the dry side in cooler weather). The sample was small, so I was only able to get a few days use out of it, but the company claims that over time, this product will provide ant-aging and regenerative benefits.
