January Birchbox + Giveaway

January Birchbox

This months Birchbox theme was Clarity, setting the tone for the rest of the year.
I especially enjoyed their mini detox tips.
I already threw out all my products w/ expiration dates a couple weeks ago *check*

Now on to the GOODS!!

1. Stila| Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue Ribbon
Received one full size .01oz tube, retails for $20.00
I sampled the color on my hand first & it truly does not smear. This is what it looked like after I ran my finger over the product.
2. Clark's Botanicals| Smoothing Marine Cream
This claims to say goodbye to dull skin, thanks to the gyolic acid in this exfoliation moisturizer. It's also claims to boost skins collagen. You can also use this on the back side of your hand.
Paraben-Free of course!
1.7 fl oz. retails for $115.00, Not sure of the size I received but it's a decent size considering the price of this product.

3. Archipelago| Pomegranate Body Soap
Blended w/ pomegranate, white tea, cranberry & chamomile extracts.
Rich in natural antioxidants & phase II Enzyme boosters.
6.9 oz retails for $12.50, received 1.8 roughly a $3.26

4. Juicy Couture| Juicy Couture
Sample size spray.
This is one of my favorite perfums, which I already own, so this little sample works perfectly for my
 purse on the days I do wear it.

5. LARABAR| Carrot Cake
No artifical fillers in these natural bars; just dried fruits, nut and other wholesome ingredients.

Total estimated value..
I'd say about $20 worth of the Clark's cream & a cute little birchbox magnet.
Have you tried it before? I've read the reviews and they're pretty believable.

Happy Monday & MLK Jr. Day.
