For writing a post the other day saying I’m trying to cut back on hauls this year I’ve sure had a lot this week…here’s what I got with the coupon code from my spring Fortune Cookie Soap Box. I’m sooooo glad that FCS brought back the coffee scrub that came out with their Once Upon A Time collection. Now that it’s a part of the permanent collection it’s officially HG status for me. Also the Beach Bum sample smells awesome and fruity!
This week’s second little haul: my essentials from LUSH, plus a sample I’ve been wanting to try out for a while.
I’m super glad to see Herbalism in a black pot rather than the terrible cardboard box I got last time I picked some up. It’s also nice that I’ll be able to return that pot with my Mask of Magnaminty pots for a free fresh face mask!
The tiniest Birchbox haul ever. As you guys may or may not have noticed there haven’t been many haul posts lately. I’ve been making an effort to go through some of my stash and only purchase beauty products as needed, so the few times I’ve made purchases in the last few months they haven’t been very exciting.
February empties, and bonus cat ears! Not much to note this month really. I’ve been going through a ton of lotion lately with the extremely cold weather. I repurchased Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo (as usual), and the Eyeko liquid eyeliner pen.
Hair successfully reddened, and eyebrows successfully bleached. I’m ready for dress rehearsal tonight!
I’m going to attempt to ombré my hair all by myself tomorrow, wish me luck!
I need to dye my roots and make the red a little more red (less copper) for Rocky Horror (which opens Thursday!), so hopefully it doesn’t turn into a huge, 5 different colored mess.
At least I have my Fortune Cookie Soap Box to redeem my disappointing Birchbox this month! Here’s my first sniff run down, starting at the top left:
- Make it Rain Whipped Cream - too “perfumey”
- Marshmallow Dreams Cuticle Butter - Herbal and sweet at the same time, I dig it.
- The Bloom Bloom Room Bath Fizzy - I like the fruitiness, but it might be a little too floral.
- Me So Thorny Shower Steamer - too perfumey
- Afternoon Delight OCD Hand Sanitizer - yummy and fruity (peachy), but the alcohol smell of the hand sanitizer is kinda throwing me off
- Native Nectar Body Wash - COCONUTS! Delish
- Venus Fly Trap Perfume Oil - too perfumey, I really don’t like musk.
- Forbidden Fruit Fortune Cookie Soap - blueberry and lemon, I love it!
Each box comes with a $10 coupon code, which at this point I’m most likely to spend on the Afternoon Delight, Native Nectar, and Forbidden Fruit scents. I love my fruity smells!
Well, it was about time. My last few Birchboxes have been great, but there isn’t anything in this one I’m excited about. I’m on the fence about the scent of the perfume and the soap, and I just don’t get the whole sheer top coat thing, especially in the amber color I got. Isn’t it just going to make my nails look yellowed?
