Review – Coola Face SPF 30 Mineral Matte Tint Unscented

4 Apr

Coola Face SPF 30 Mineral Matte Tint Unscented surprised me.

I received this in my Birchbox in March.

I have a number of these Coola products that all seem slightly different, but the same.  And you have to read the entire package to actually figure out there are some differences.  I don’t know if it’s because they are still playing with the formula or what.  All I know is that I tried this and liked it and went to look at all my other samples and they didn’t exactly match this.  Wah!

Why I love this~

It says matte and it means it.  There is no shine.  It’s great.

Stays more matte than most bb/tinted moisturizers.

Good wear and lasting power.

Would I buy it?

Maybe.  I like it as a tinted moisturizer.  I don’t really think it’s a real BB cream in the way of Asian BB creams. Asian BB creams are more than just a tinted moisturizer.  They are more like tinted treatments.

Are you a Coola fan?

May 2013 BirchBox Review

24 May

ImageI got my first Birch Box yesterday.  It was fun but also a little disappointing compared to the Ipsy that Anna received as she got FULL SIZED products.  <READ ABOUT IT HERE>

I unwrapped my cute little box to discover:

Hair Masque, sunscreen, toothpaste, eyeliner and 4 tea bags.  Kind of boring.  I didn’t think I filled out the “send me some boring crap” profile.  I said I was edgy and loved makeup!  BIRCHBOX HALP.

So I am going to try it again next month and give them another chance.  Right now I don’t feel like I got my $10 worth.  Although I haven’t tried any of the products – aside from the tea, which is actually quite tasty but I wanted lip gloss or something to slather on my face.

As a side note – many of these sample sized products would be good to take on vacation.
