Goop Birchbox Review
First the EVE LOM cleanser/muslin cloth-I kind of liked the cleanser since it has quite a few essentials oils in it but when I rinsed using the muslin cloth and water it still felt like a film was left on my face. Not sure if that's intentional. The muslin cloths were just ok, I think they cost way too much for a piece of cloth, you could use a fine mesh cheese cloth and get the same results. Or even a baby washcloth works too. I generally use a Clarisonic brush with my Philosophy Purity cleanser (which I did purchase after receiving a sample in an earlier birchbox).
Next the DDF pore minimizer/serum, I just thought it was ok, didn't help all that much with pore minimizing.
The LUNA bar in lemon zest I liked, but if you are not used to a health bar it might taste a little like cardboard to you.
Next AMIKA hair mask, I loved the colors on the sample package, smelled nice and did moisturize my hair, not sure I would pay $40 for a full size though, I normally use coconut oil as a hair mask monthly.
The Chantecaille mascara I was not impressed with, my Loreal Voluminous works better at giving me length and definition. Also had a weird scent.
So there you have it, next up I'll have my other monthly beauty subscription review-Glam Bag.
