For the month of March, Birchbox partnered with Comptoir des Cotonniers to give us this month’s « beauty box ». I use quotes because in fact, I was pleasantly surprised to find my beauty products in not one, but two beauty pouches!
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Comptoir des Cotonniers is a French clothes brand. They came up with the beauty pouches. You can use them together or separately. The plastic one is particularly useful when I have to bring around wet stuff, like at the pool or the beach.
Here are the products for this month (I haven’t used and tested any yet):
*Morning Street – Shampooing hydratant et nourrissant – Apparently this is good for all types of hair. It’s a small bottle and I have super long hair, so I think I’ll be able to test this 2 times. It has a nice smell.
*Garancia – Diabolique Tomate crème d’eau – I’m very excited to use this product. It’s supposed to hydrate your skin and make your skin look nice even after only the first use! My skin sure needs this with the change of season coming up.
*Qiriness – Le wrap vitaminé – (Yuka: 9/100) Another face mask I have to test. Honestly, I have a lot to finish first before I attack this one, but this is supposed to leave your skin boosted with radiance.
*Lollipops – Vernis à ongles – (Yuka: 100/100) I’m not fan of my hands and my nails. It took me a loooonnnggg time to stop biting my nails. Thankfully at 33, I don’t anymore. But I also don’t take care of them as I should. I miss those manicure-pedicure days in the Philippines!
*Olivos – Savon au lait et à l’huile d’olive – (Yuka: 100/100) This soap is made from donkey milk and olive oil. It is free of paraben and palm oil. It’s suitable for all members of all the family, including children, and can be used on the body, face, and even hair! I’m always a little bit iffy about donkey milk because of the smell, but this smells surprisingly good!
*Yves Saint Laurent – All hours foundation sample – They also included a small sample of the YSL foundation in this month’s box. I don’t wear that much foundation nowadays, but I’m sure I’ll find an occasion to try this.
