NAOBAY Body Radiance Lotion
Birchbox Take: Olive oil, shea butter, and avocado oil deliver serious moisture, while aloe vera soothes and protects skin. More than 98 percent of ingredients in this creamy lotion are natural, and over 19 percent are organic-and like all of Naobay products, it’s free of GMOs and made without paragons, formaldehyde, petrochemical, synthetic dyes, and a host of other chemicals that research suggest may come with health risks.
My Take: I got a sample of this in an earlier birchbox and it was definitely a product I didn’t mind getting another of. It has a lovely citrus scent and is the perfect size to throw in my purse to keep moisturized throughout the day when I am out and about.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner
Birchbox Take: These luxe, creamy liners deliver bold color that lasts and lasts. Choose from five wearable shades: Black, Silver Charcoal, Sky Blue, and Violet. Vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free, these liners feature Cynthia Rowley’s signature gold foil design.
My Take: This was probably my least favorite product in the box this month. I will say this, it did go on super creamy and delivered a really bold pop of silver. Unfortunately, I’m definitely not a girl who can pull off silver eyeliner. I promise I will find another use for this product. Eyeliner tattoos perhaps?
What do you guys think of the Birchbox samples this month? Did you get the Fashionista box too?

My first ever giveaway and I am so excited! I decided a while back that for my first giveaway, I really wanted to create my own Brendy Beauty box. I have been a part of a bunch of subscription boxes in the past and some of my favorites were boxes that had been curated by an individual. It ranged from their favorites to must-haves. I liked that the boxes contained a variety of products and didn’t just focus on beauty or fashion.
This giveaway is a curated collection of 6 items focused around a theme of a Pamper evening, which is one of my favorite things to do!
Bliss Incredi-Peel – An at home Spa Treatment that creates an ‘overnight facial’ effect.
David’s Tea Midsummer Night’s Dream & Tea Sachets – One of my favorite loose leaf teas with sachets so you can have it anywhere.
The Infernal Devices: The Clockwork Prince – Every good pamper evening needs a good book and I absolutely love this series.
Essie Nail Polish in Wicked – A gorgeous polish and one of my favorites for Fall.
Snappea Crisps – One of my favorite healthier snacks.
Lush Gift Card – Bath Bombs & Bubble Bars are a pre-requisite for any pamper evening. (Amount $10)
Disclaimer: Because of the super high cost of shipping, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents. Sorry to any international readers, I promise to expand my giveaways in the future! The giveaway will end on September 26.
