The POREfessional

Sarah: This pore minimizing formula from Benefit is great! I’m definitely planning on buying the full sized version. It goes on super smoothly and not only minimizes the appearance of pores, but also reduces redness. I’ve always had great experience with Benefit products and this one is no exception!

Perk Up Dry Shampoo

Sarah: I was super excited when I received this sample because it’s the perfect purse sized dry shampoo! Amir’s dry shampoo is great, but I am personally partial to the Dove brand of dry shampoo. I was happy to get this sample, but I will continue to buy the $4 Dove product. The full sized Amika Dry shampoo is $21.

Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray

Emily: This product was super featured for last months Birchbox since this is a new company for them and I was so disappointed that I didn’t get this sample last month. It has such great reviews and I really wanted to try it and I was not disappointed! This sea salt spray gives my hair a little extra bounce and wave when I want the perfect mermaid curls. It smells lovely and keeps my hair soft while still holding the style! I’ll definitely be getting this product!

Emily: Benefit never lets me down. While I wish this was a warmer pink so it looked better on my skin tone I really liked this lip balm! I’m usually a lipstick girl but this provided me with amazing moisture that lasts all day. The bubblegum pink tint is sheer enough that I will still keep using it, I may buy the full size Benebalm (the same product only a deeper red) instead!
