What I got in my November 2015 Birchbox & Try out Birchbox for only $5!

I was a loyal Birchbox subscriber in 2012, but I ended up cancelling my subscription after accumulating more makeup and samples than I could use, I decided to resubscribe this month, and I just received my first box.

Just in case you don't know what Birchbox is, it's a subscription service that sends you 5 beauty samples a month.What sets Birchbox apart from the many other beauty boxes is that they send you makeup from well known and high end brands, while Ipsy often sends you cheaper and less well known makeup. They are also one of the most affordable subscription services at only $10 a month, compared to Glossybox which is $21 a month.

They even have an amazing reward points system. For every item you review in your box, you receive 10 points, and you receive 50 points for referring friends. Just by reviewing your samples, you receive a guaranteed 50 points a month. For every 100 points, you get $10 to spend in the Birchbox store. So, it's super easy to earn a lot of points to buy full size products of your choice!

Usually Birchbox packages your samples like a beautiful gift. Needless to say, I was less than thrilled with the packaging of my box this month. The tissue paper was wrinkled and just stuffed in the box. My samples inside were carelessly scattered about.

However, I was pretty pleased with my samples. I received:

  • Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with soothing Cornflower - I have dark circles under my eyes, so this is a useful sample for me.
  • Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo - I'm really excited about this one. It's a generous size, I've been wanting to try this brand, and I love dry shampoo. It's a win, win, win.
  • Lox Vibrant Matte Lipstick in the color Wildest Dreams - This is also a generous size sample and I love receiving makeup in my boxes. The only thing i'm not too thrilled about is that it's red. I personally just don't care for red lips on me. 
  • Parlor by Jeff Chastain Touchable Curl Cream - This one I'm a little iffy on. I love hair products, but I usually wear my hair straight. However, I've never tried a curl cream, so I will give it a chance.
  • theBalm cosmetics Cindy-Lou-Manizer - Ahh, I've been wanting to try makeup from theBalm badly. I've heard a lot of good things about this product. So, I'm really excited about getting this in my box.
Overall, I'm really happy with the products I received in my Birchbox this month. If you want to subscribe to Birchbox for $10 a month, then click here. By using my link, you will receive $5 off your first box!

Caitlin's Super Natural Deodorant Review & Giveaway!

Sweating and body odor is completely natural. However, sweaty and stinky underarms can still be very embarrassing. To keep arm pits fresh and dry, we use deodorant, but not all deodorants are created equal. Many deodorants contain aluminum salts to prevent us from sweating. Unfortunately, aluminum is a neurotoxin that has been linked to breast cancer and neurological disorders. That is why I always opt for all natural deodorants instead.

Caitlin's Super Natural Deodorants are vegan, organic, environmentally sustainable, and contain 100% botanical ingredients. Caitlin's Super Natural Deodorants are only made with plants or probiotics, they contain no aluminum, triclosan, or parabens. So, you can feel safe putting them on your skin.

Some other amazing benefits of Caitlin's Super Natural:
  • Only natural and healthy ingredients!
  • Their main ingredient is certified organic aloe vera.
  • Cruelty Free.
  • For both men and women.
  • Aromatherapeutic benefits.
  • They operate off-the-grid.
  • They use recycled and re-used shipping materials. 

I received all three deodorants; Lavender and Currant, Sandalwood and Olive Leaf, and Bergamot and Cypress. All three are very similar, and only vary slightly by the scent of the essential oils.

Each deodorant has a mix of essential oils that provide unique Aromatherapeutic benefits. Lavender is soothing, calming, and balancing, Sandalwood is cooling, and grounding, Bergamot is restorative, and emotionally uplifting, and Cypress can quiet a busy mind, relieve anxiety, and ease transitions.

Each bottle of deodorant that I received is 2 ounces, but they also have 4 ounce bottles available as well. They come with a spray top, for easy application.

I like that the formula is very lightweight, non-sticky, and non-greasy. It never leaves any unattractive and embarassing residue behind that can ruin your clothing. I love that I can lift up my arms, without the fear that I will have unsightly caked on deodorant under my arms. I feel very free and natural using this deodorant. It feels like I'm not wearing any deodorant at all! Since it contains only natural ingredients, I even apply them before bed, just in case I sweat during the night.

Overall, I would highly recommend Caitlin's Super Natural Deodorants. They smell good, they are natural, good for the environment, and good for you!

Thanks to Caitlin's Super Natural one lucky Glamour Girl Reviews reader will win three (2 ounce) Deodorants (ARV: $24)!

Caress Adore Forever and Love Forever Body Wash Review!

Caress has always been one of my favorite brands for bath products. Their body washes are always thick, luxurious, and smell oh so good. They recently came out with the Forever Collection, and two new body washes; Adore Forever and Love Forever. 

What makes this collection so special, is they are the world's first body washes that contain Fragrance Touch Technology. This breakthrough technology of Fragrance Release Pearls releases bursts of perfume with every touch of your skin. It delivers long-lasting, unforgettable, fine fragrance for up to 12 hours.

Both of these body washes smell delicious and amazing, just like a perfume I would want to wear all day long. I can't decide which one I like better!

The Adore Forever Body Wash has notes of Raspberry, Cassis, Angel Face Rose, Muguet, Amber, Honey, and Vanilla.

The Love Forever Body Wash has notes of Mandarin Orange, Peach, Scarlet Red Rose, Peony, Freesia, Sandalwood, and Vanilla Musk.

You can find the Forever Collection, as well as other Caress products at Walgreens, Kmart, CVS, Dollar General, and many other grocery stores, drug stores, and chain stores.

You can keep up with Caress on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion, Soothing Skin and Lip Care, and Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips Review!

I'm a Murad Brand Ambassador, which means I'm always getting plenty of their latest and greatest goodies. Murad is a great company, founded by Dr. Murad who's mission and passion is to help people unlock their potential to look younger, to feel younger and to live healthier, happier and more rewarding lives.

I recently received three new Murad products to add to my skin care regime; Soothing Skin and Lip Care, Rapid Collagen Infusion, and Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips.

All three products are from the Age Reform collection, which is a line of skin care products for anti-aging. I especially love the Age Reform line, because aging is a big concern of mine. I'm 26-years-old, which might seem young to worry about wrinkles, but it's best to start early and try to combat wrinkles before they appear.

  • Rapid Collagen Infusion - This product is a fast acting anti-aging treatment that targets wrinkles and loss of resilience by rapidly revolumizing skin and supporting natural restoration of more youthful collagen levels. It's very creamy and makes my skin feel velvety and super moisturized. I apply it after cleansing and then I follow it with a moisturizer.
  • Soothing Skin and Lip Care - Most people cleanse and moisturize their face every night, but we often completely ignore our lips. After I am finished with my nightly face routine, I like to apply a generous amount of the Soothing Skin and Lip Care to my lips. This product not only moisturizes but also makes my lips really glossy. It's perfect for dry, chapped lips and minor skin irritations by sealing in long lasting moisture as it gently smoothes and exfoliates.
  • Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips - This lightweight serum simultaneously boosts micro-circulation for plumper, fuller lips while working over time to reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and wrinkles. It instantly smooths and hydrates for an ideal base under lipstick, gloss, or balm. I apply it every day before applying my lipstick!

Monday, February 16, 2015 KaNoodles Premium Dental Chews Review!

As you may already know, I love! If you haven't heard of them yet, they are a one-stop online shop for everything that your pet needs. They have pet food, treats, toys, grooming products, leashes, collars, pet beds, flea and tick products, and much more.

I receive a different bag of treats from every month. They only sell the best treats that are made with high quality and natural ingredients.

This month I decided to try out KaNoodles, because I thought they looked pretty interesting. KaNoodles are premium dental chews for adult dogs. They are very tasty for dogs and they are a rather unique approach for oral and digestive health.

These treats are great for keeping your dogs teeth clean and healthy. The crevices in each KaNoodles chew increase tooth surface interaction time and reach deep down to the base of each tooth. They are made with wholesome grains, zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids, this pasta-based chew is easily digested when swallowed and provides nutrition that helps keep teeth and gums healthy.

They are available in four different sizes from small to extra large. I have a 10 lb. Chihuahua, so the small chews were perfect for her. 

Some of the key benefits of the KaNoodles Dental Chews are:
  • Removes plaque and tartar
  • Easily digested when swallowed
  • Made from wholesome, digestible grains
  • No preservatives, artificial color, added sugar or GMO

I think these treats are a great value and Zooey seems to love them too. As always, as soon as I open the bag, Zooey comes running. I could hardly take the picture above without her trying to snatch the treat from my hand. She really enjoyed chewing on it and eating it up!
