Benefit Balms

I have always been a little nervous on using Benefit's tints.  The thought of using a "stain" on my cheeks and lips has me running for a hot wash cloth!  Maybe I just need to break down and try it one time.  However, for now I'll stick to their lip balms.   I was so excited when these were first introduced.  I received a sample of the Posie Balm in my July Birchbox and fell in love with it!

First things first....The packaging is so adorable! These balms leave your lips feeling hydrated and have just a light tint of color. I mainly purchased a full size of the Bene-Balm, based on the light red tint it gave off.  I was a little scared at first of the red, but after doing a few swatches of it on my hand, I noticed that it just had a red sheen to it.

The balms come in 4 colors-Bene balm, Posie balm. Lolli balm, and Cha Cha balm.
They are totally worth the money and I would recommend them to anyone...based on the packaging alone.....Then again, I would recommend any Benefit products!

Birchbox + The EveryGirl

Two of my favorite websites coming together to produce an awesome product...of course I would get it!

The first day that Birchbox announced that they would be having a box with the website The Everygirl, I jumped right on it to get it.  However, there was such high traffic on the sit,e that I wasn't able to secure a box. I send Birchbox a tweet to let them know how bummed I was.  If you didn't already know, Birchbox has a great customer service department and I was able to get The EveryGirl box at the last min. (plus another box, since they didn't send me the right one).

I am totally in love with this box! It came with 5 products.

Number 4-Super Comb Prep & Protect
Benefit-They're Real! Push-Up Liner
Acure Organics-brightening Facial Scrub
Harvey Prince-Hello Perfume
Not Soap, Radio-Happiness Inducing Body Wash

For once I will be using all the products  in this box.  My favorite is by far the Harvey Prince-Hello perfume!

What is your favorite product in the box? If you didn't get the EveryGirl box this month-what was in your box?

Happy 'Birchboxing' my friends!
