Jules & Esther Cucumber Eye Gel
Jules & Esther
Cucumber Eye Gel
Emily: I haven’t been getting a ton of sleep recently so my eyes have had some serious bags. This amazing cucumber eye gel from Jules & Esther has pretty much changed my life. When I apply it, my eyes instantly feel less puffy and extremely refreshed. It reduces the redness and bags under my eyes. It’s a little bit sticky when you first apply it, but once it dries completely you can apply your usual skincare and makeup. This product also battles and prevents wrinkles! I’ve never been much of an eye cream or gel kind of person, but this amazing product is one I may have to invest in once I use up my sample!
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
Emily: I was a little skeptical about this eyeliner when I received it. My eyes water a lot and when I’ve used eyeliner pens before my liner ends up running everywhere, but this product stays! I love the stiff pointed applicator because it allows you to create perfect thin or thick lines with precision. It glides on smoothly and has an opaque, velvety finish. This is a great eyeliner to create a cat-eye look for novices and experts!
Amika Nourishing Mask
Emily: I have super-thick hair so I always use a leave-in conditioner spray to detangle and moisturize my hair. I absolutely love this hair mask from Amika. I washed my hair 2 nights ago and used this product and my hair is still so soft, but it doesn’t look greasy from the extra product. I left it in my hair for about 5 minutes, rinsed it out, and I didn’t even need to use any other product to detangle!
Sarah: This product is a nourishing hair mask that conditions and repairs with “super fruit sea buckthorn berry”. My hair gets oily quickly so I’m always hesitant to try treatments such as this, but this is a great product! You apply it to your hair while damp and then wait 5-10 minutes to rinse it out. I went we 5 minutes because as I said I am often hesitant of products such as this. After rinsing the mask out my hair felt super soft and light. The product didn’t add any weight or greasiness to my hair. And it smells great!
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
Sarah: This product is a gel facial cream that is derived from antioxidant-rich grapes. It is intended to hydrate the skin and reduce redness. I’ve never used a gel facial cream before and I wasn’t a huge fan of this product. It does help to slightly reduce redness, but doesn’t leave my skin feeling fresh and soft. Instead it left my skin feeling slightly filmy. Yuck!
Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum
Intensive Blemish Serum
Sarah: This is by far my favorite product from this month’s Birchbox! This intensive blemish serum is meant to be applied twice daily either just to blemished areas or to the entire face. I noticed a difference as soon as I applied Evologie’s serum! It seriously reduces pore size and redness of blemishes. I already plan on buying the full sized version!
