Best of Birchbox

Since I've only been blogging a little while (not counting my random recipe posts since 2010 ;) ), I wanted to share my favorite items from previous month Birchboxes! I've discovered some pretty awesome products and usually the samples are big enough to use for a while. Sometimes the nail polish is even full size!

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant {February 2012}
This stuff is great- it exfoliates but it gentle enough to use daily. It leaves my face feeling clean and has a small amount of Salicylic Acid to help prevent breakouts.

fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 {March 2012, Teen Vogue Box}
This lip treatment smells great, lasts a long time, and provides a subtle tint. Chapsticks, glosses, and lipsticks are always tricky for me and this product does not leave my lips cracked, dry, sticky, like many others do.

Kerastase Elixir Ultimate {March 2012, Teen Vogue Box}
You couldn't tell from the name, but this is hair oil. I already use Argan Oil (Redken All Soft) which I LOVE but this stuff works wonders as well. It's a blend of four oils and makes the hair feel silky smooth. It even makes styling hair easier. It's $54 for a bottle so I can't say I would purchase it, but maybe I'll save up my Birchbox points to buy it :)

Zoya TRUE Spring Collection Nail Polish- Bevin {April 2012}
I was unsure about the color when I opened the box. It's a muted blue/teal color and is gorgeous in the bottle... I didn't know how I would feel about it on my nails but I love it. I wouldn't wear this color daily but it's a fun change and got me hooked on Zoya polish! {Zoya polish doesn't contain the toxic chemicals so it doesn't smell as bad, and it lasts much longer than regular polish!}

Wonderstruck Taylor Swift Perfume {April 2012}
Taylor Swift's perfume smelled a little strong at first, so I was unsure. I tried it out and a little bit goes a long way- it lasts all day and has a fresh and fun scent. I'm a fan and would definitely consider buying a full sized bottle once my sample runs out. {As you might know from my May Birchbox post, I'm extremely picky about perfume!}

J.R. Watkins Hand & Cuticle Salve- Lemon {April 2012}
April was a good month! I was pleasantly surprised with this hand salve. It smells fresh and keeps my cuticles moisturized for hours. There are other scents, but if I were to buy it I would pick the lemon scent.

That's my Birchbox roundup! What are your favorites?
