Tocca Laundry Delicate

Tocca Laundry Delicate is a dream product. As a person who loves Tocca products and hates hand washing, I was thrilled to learn that this product existed. It is perfect for hand washing delicates such as bras and hand wash only tops. But another great thing about it is that you can actually use it in the washing machine as well to make your linens smell nice and fresh. 

I noticed right away that when I poured it into the sink, it started to bubble up much more so than when I hand wash with regular soap. It smelled amazing as soon as I poured it in the water. It will definitely leave your clothes smelling fresh and fragrant.

Valentine's Day Birchbox!

Valentine's Day Birchbox
My boyfriend got me another year of Birchbox for Vday! It's the gift that just keeps on giving so I was very happy about that! 

What's in my box?

Catherine Malandrino perfume:
Here we go again! Already got a repeat item and this is only my 4th box. First of this subscription. Just got this same fragrance 2 boxes ago. I did like the scent but I hate receiving fragrance samples! I could get this for free from the mall :(

Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stain, Heartthrob:
This was one of the products that sold me on the curated box. I love this lip stain. It smells lovely. The color red is just right. It is noticeable but not in your face red. I prefer this lip stain over Stainiac, which I received in a prior box. My only negative is the size of the tube, it is tiny and the lip brush is equally short. It makes applying it without a mirror difficult to me. 

Gilchrist & Soames body lotion:
This is a body lotion from London. It has a nice scent but it's kind of bland. Not very exciting but it is a decent sized lotion sample.

Coola Mineral Sunscreen:
I was not at all excited to get a sunscreen in my February box. When I posted this in the Birchblogger group, all the comments were like, "you should use sunscreen all year round." Well, this may be true, but I don't. If I do decide to add sunscreen to my daily routine, I don't think I need a sample of it. It will not be one of my luxury products. I definitely will not be purchasing this product. It smells like dough. It does say it is a BB cream so I guess that is one good thing about it... two-in-one.  

Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle leave in conditioner:
I was most excited for this product. I LOVE the smell. It smells delicious. It comes out as a bubbling liquid. I prefer sprays to gels when it comes to my hair. This consistency is somewhere in between. I sprayed on my hand and rubbed into my hair. I will definitely use this product.

Bonus * Teas from Harney & Sons, Hot Cinnamon Spice and Rooibos Chai:
I love the packaging on this tea. It is so pretty. I am excited to try these. I didn't love TeaPigs so I'm hopeful that these will be better. I will update after I taste both flavors. 

Overall, I was slightly disappointed in this box. I liked 2 out 5 products. I wish there was a limit on lotions and fragrances that you receive in your boxes. I would like to receive more makeup vs lotions/ makeup removers/fragrances and yes, I have filled out the online profile.

Brand New Gillette Venus Swirl Razor

First ever bzzagent box came! I got the new Gillette Venus Swirl razor and the new violet swirl shave gel. 

I really like this razor. It has 5 blades and a moisturizer around it. It makes for easy and safe shaving. No Knicks or cuts yet! It gives a close shave too. I think I would definitely keep using this blade and I will continue to repurchase the blades. I currently am a fan of some schick disposable blades. Might be time to make a switch! Have you tried this razor? Do you plan to?

Instanatural Dead Sea Mud Mask and a bonus night cream.

I was super excited to try out the Dead Sea Mud Mask and Instanatural night cream through Brandbacker. I'm a sucker for any kind of spa day type of mask and I'm a huge fan of dead sea products.  I've never used a night cream before but I figured I would give it a try. 

The Dead Sea mud mask dried quickly and made my skin feel very tight. I imagine this is what your face might feel like after Botox. JK but I feel like this is a good sign for a mud mask. 

The mask washed off pretty easily and left my face feeling clean, smooth and tingly. I would definitely use again. My face was a little red after washing the mask off but I think that was just from using the washcloth to wash up. It did not irritate my skin.
