March Birchbox

Hey friends I wanted to share my March Birchbox with you today. As most of you know I’m flying to San Francisco today. I’m actually up in the air right now.

It won’t hurt my feelings if you want to say a quick prayer for our safety! :-)


Birchbox is a monthly subscription. They are redefining the retail process by offering consumers a unique and personalized way to discover, learn about, and shop the best beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products on the market.

Each month I receive samples or sometimes full size products of beauty products. Here’s what I received this month.

Gilchrist & Soames Body Lotion-has a light earthly scent and makes my skin feel super soft.


Grand Central Beauty Skin Perfecting Serum + Primer- hydrates skin while providing a silky-smooth base for makeup. (Plus a treat from Ghirardelli, yum!)

chocolate and balm

Dr. Hauschka regenerating eye cream & regenerating neck and décolleté cream. I can’t wait to try this, although there’s probably not enough to show a real difference.

Lastly,  INIKA eyeliner in green lagoon. This is a full size product, although I probably won’t use it because it’s green. I’ll definitely give it to someone younger.

All in all, it was a pretty good box. I love to learn about new products, so it’s fun for me!

Beauty for the Heart~~This was the verse I read this morning before traveling.

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For theLord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

My Weekend + June Birchbox

Good morning! We had a busy weekend! My sister, Traci got home from Nicaragua last night and we met her at the airport to welcome her home. I was so glad to see her!

This is Colt waiting for Aunt Traci to get off of her plane. Eli, Traci’s youngest son has his arm around Colt. So sweet!


We also had a wedding of a dear friend to attend on Saturday night. It was gorgeous! Wayne couldn’t go to the wedding so Cory, my son, was my date for the evening.

Every chance this mama gets to spend with her son is a blessing! One of these days he’s going to meet a young lady that’s going to capture his heart. I’ve been praying for her from the time Cory was born and I can’t wait to meet her!


I”ve mentioned  Birchbox before, but it’s a monthly subscription service ($10 a month)  of high-end beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples that have been customized for you.

When you’re ready for more of the products you sampled, you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Birchbox Shop. They have a generous loyalty program that rewards you every time you shop!

Also, if you order the products from Birchbox  during the month they were sent, you get free shipping.

I loved this months Birchbox (some months I like better than others) and I plan on ordering full sizes of some of the sample products.

Here’s what was in this month’s Birchbox:


  • Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion
  • Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner and Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo
  • Color Club® Wanderlust Nail Polish
  • Youngblood Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder
  • Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

I used the Davins Love Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s specifically for dry and frizzy hair and I loved it!! Even my daughter noticed my hair looking shinier. I will order this, it’s a bit pricey so I’ll only use it a couple of times a week.

As always Birchbox is beautifully packaged, and it’s a fun gift to receive in the mail. It allows me to try products that I would never know about if I didn’t get them from Birchbox.

March Birchbox

March Birchbox

Today I wanted to share my March Birchbox with you. Have you heard of a Birchbox? Birchbox is a great way to learn about, and shop the best beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products on the market.

Each Birchbox is handpicked and delivered to your door for $10/month + Birchboxes Ship Free! Because of my age, I seem to receive a lot of anti-aging products. :-)

You will receive a selection of 4-5 samples that have been tried (and retried). You’ll receive anything from skincare to makeup to beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging products.

Here’s what I received this month:

Caudalie eye cream-A new, fast-acting formula, Caudalie’s best-selling eye cream uses caffeine and patented grape antioxidants to soften fine lines and reduce puffy dark circles. If this stuff works, I’m ordering the full size!

Serge Normant Dry Shampoo-The A-list stylist created this volume-boosting mist to give second-day locks a lift. Not sure about this one but I will give it a try!

Stella Cadente Eau de Parfum-This is a blend of peony, orange, and silkwood blossoms. I love trying sample perfumes!

Vasanti Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator-Exfoliating cleanser uses professional-grade microderm crystals and papaya enzymes to brighten dull skin. I’m using this and so far I love it!

If you love makeup and want to learn tips and tricks from the experts, you might want to try a subscription to Birchbox.

Have you heard of Birchbox? Do you think you would like receiving samples each month?

Beauty For the Heart~~The book of Proverbs is full of practical wisdom and I love reading it. Proverbs 10:32 says, “The godly speak words that are helpful, but the wicked speak only what is corrupt.” How true!

Have a blessed day!

A Daily Exfoliant That Works!

Good morning! Today, I wanted to share a product with you that I’ve been using. The product is called Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. It’s a daily exfoliant for your face that really works.

Here’s the thing, I received the product in my Birchbox (I love getting my Birchbox every month and if you would like to get one, you can go here). As usual I sometimes don’t use every product immediately. I’m not sure why because I always love the products they send me.

I decided to try the Dermalogica exfoliant and I absolutely loved the way it made my face feel. The exfoliant is in a powder form. You add a little warm water which activates the product and then massage into your face for one minute. I keep the Dermalogica exfoliant in my shower.


Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, 2.6-Ounce

Now, let me just say that the Dermalogica products are not cheap but if there’s one thing I’m willing to pay a little more for, it’s skin care products.

I know there aren’t any products out there that will give me the skin I had in my 20s but I do want to take care of my aging skin and part of that is using a daily exfoliant.

Exfoliating your skin is important and is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine. But trust me, if you start properly exfoliating your skin, you will notice an almost immediate difference.

I read somewhere that one of the reasons men’s skin looks more youthful than women’s is because men tend to exfoliate daily when they shave. Hmmm, very interesting!

The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is gentle enough to use everyday and will leave your skin looking smoother and brighter.

Do you use an exfoliatant on your skin? If you do, what do you use?

I did not receive any compensation for this post, I just like the product and wanted to share it with you–my sweet readers!

Have a blessed day!

A Firming & Lifting Cream That Works!

I have to tell you, I’m a sucker for anything that says anti-aging, firming, or lifting!

I’m obviously not the only one. I recently read that we spend over a billion dollars a year on anti-aging products.

Honestly, I don’t think there’s a product out there that’s going to make my 45 year old face and neck look like a 25 year old.

I say it on here all the time but I really believe that true beauty comes from the inside.

A heart that’s full of love, peace, patience, joy etc. makes every age woman, beautiful!

But every once in a while, I find a product I really like and I want to share it with YOU.

Each month I receive a Birchbox in the mail.

Birchbox is full of new grooming, beauty and lifestyle sample products.

Birchbox allows you to sample top products from high-end brands, get expert advice, and buy new favorites.

If you’re interested in getting your own Birchbox you can go here.

Recently they sent me a sample of ALGENIST firming & lifting cream.

Believe it or not, I didn’t try it immediately.

But the area that has been bothering me recently is my neck. I had tried some other things but nothing seemed to help.

I decided to try the ALGENIST not expecting any great results.

Let me just say, I WAS WRONG! This product works.

My neck not only looks better, it feels smooth and I’m shocked!

I only have the sample size so I’m using it very sparingly. I would like to use it on my face too.

The ALGENIST products are not cheap but I’m thinking this one product might be worth purchasing.

If you’re looking for a product to smooth lines and firm your skin I would highly recommend this product.

(I am not receiving an compensation for telling you about this, I just tried and liked it, and I wanted to share it with you.)

Have you tried anything lately that you really like? Let me know!

Beauty For the Heart~~This morning in my devotional time I read Romans 12:2 (NLT),

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

I want God to transform my thinking. I want to see things the way He sees them.

I’m praying today He will mold me and make me into the woman that He can use for His glory!
