So, for those of you who may or may not know, every month when you receive your Birchbox, you can log into your account (on birchbox.com) and review the products in your box. It helps them to get feedback on what they’re sending out + better customize your future boxes.
Best of all, you earn points for each review (and for referrals), and every 100 points turns into $10 Birchbox dollars which can be used on their online shop to purchase items from shampoo to lipstick to tea and more! So, I chose to wait and stash all of my points until they added up to $40, plus used a 20% off promo code and got the following items below!
I had been contemplating which items to get for a while, and definitely knew they would be Benefit Cosmetic brand as it’s one of my favorites. I realized I was all stocked up on eyeliner, mascara and lip products so I was in between some face and cheek products…
I ended up choosing this Benefit Fake Up Hydrating Concealer (~$24), which helps to cover pimples, blemishes and under eye circles. It’s super hydrating and goes on smoothly, so it’s become a daily staple.
Then, I decided to opt for something I wouldn’t usually get, and so I chose the Benefit Fine-One-One (~$30). This chunky stick is a twist-up blush + highlighter in one, with 3 shades to help define and highlight your cheek bones. Originally, I contemplated getting Benetint, Posietint or one of the powder blushes, but with the warmth of summer and the rave reviews, this creamy blush/highlight seemed to win me over.
Here’s a close-up so you can see the three colors: a coral, pink-ish red and illuminator.
And with orders over $35, you can get a FREE Mystery Bag of items, so I decided, “Why not!?” and ended up getting two samples: 1 100% Pure Fruit Extract Mascara (deluxe sample) and a Harvey Prince Hello Fragrance (sample). I’ve received both before in past Birchboxes, but it’s better than nothing!
