Buys & Finds: April 16 Edition

Buys & Finds: April 16 Edition

Hope everyone had a fabulous Monday and continuing with that, has a fabulous week ahead! My Birchbox finally made it to my house after a trip for what seemed like months! I was so excited after seeing so many other boxes to receive the Zoya nail polish & hand salve, but alas neither was in my box this month. Read below to find out what actually was in my Box this month:

Atelier Cologne - Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue - Full-size, $55 - $150
Befine - Skincare Sampler - Full- size, $24 each
Oile Biologique - 004 Huile Moderne - Full-size, $56
Revolution Organics - Freedom Glow Beauty Balm - Full-size, $36

Lifestyle Extra
Le Palais des Thes - Tea Bags

I would have to say the item that I am most excited to try is the Beauty Balm, which is a beautiful color & I actually think it may show up on my skin tone(some blushes just don't!). I'm interested to try the Essential oils but a bit scared to try them on my face as it just seems odd to avoid oil filled products on your face & then just lather up with raw ones all over. The perfume smells a little girly & is called a cologne so I must do more research to find out if it is indeed for him or her. I do really enjoy Befine skincare, I have the full sizes of the Scrub, Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, & Night Cream; they are pretty fun to use and guilt free since they are food grade products.

Today I ventured back into my local Ulta armed with my $3.50 coupon & a couple Zoya polishes in mind. I've never tried Zoya before but I've wanted to especially after I missed the buy 3 get 3 free sale! The 2 shades that I picked up were Bevin & Avril, I had to get Bevin since I was set on it arriving in my Birchbox & Avril just jumped out at me; which is so odd for a neutral color! I just finished applying 3 coats & a top coat of Sally Hansen Mega Shine & I am quite pleased, it wasn't streaky & I'm in love with this shade!

I am currently in search of a serum & new day cream to use since my Clarisonic Mia 2 :Coral seems to be drying out my sensitive skin. Hopefully I will have more to post on the Clarisonic & what I find during my search this week or next.
