When Birchbox offered a limited-edition box of Nuance beauty products to their subscribers, I jumped at the chance to receive a sampling of Salma Hayek’s makeup and skincare line. Since the Birchbox team informed me that I was not guaranteed to snag a Nuance collection box, I didn’t expect to see one in my mailbox.
What a wonderful surprise to learn that I was one of lucky few to land a free collection box, in addition to my regular monthly Birchbox. Last week I received a pretty box with floral pink sketching, filled with five deluxe samples from the Nuance beauty line. The items included body cream, a facial cream, shampoo and conditioner and a eye cream/liner, which are favorites among Hayek’s beauty devotees.
Inspired by her grandmother’s beauty recipes, Hayek created the line of gentle skincare products for the everyday woman. My favorite is the AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream, which has tepezcohuite to provide a lovely antioxidant -rich moisturizer. I loved that Hayek searched for new ingredients to preserve her family’s traditions. The collection from Birchbox has something for every step of my beauty routine. Nuance Salma Hayek is available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy stores nationwide.

My Secret Super Moisturizing Body Cream
Mamey Fruit Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner

You might remember me talking about the beauty subscription service Birchbox last month. For the April edition, the creative team at Birchbox teamed up with Women’s Health for a great collection of wellness and beauty products. I liked that the items were chosen as the products to compliment my skincare routine. My Birchbox was filled with simple ways for me to improve my overall look.
Lucky for me, one of my favorite brands Kiehl’s was included in my selection. Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate is packed with vitamin C, which is really good for my skin. Kiehl’s has an amazing skincare line, so I was glad to try out the serum as well. I also enjoyed the sample of Nexxus Youth Renewal shine-boosting serum and a full-size of Simple Revitalizing Eye Roller. The coolness of the cucumber extract felt very soothing on my eyes.
For awhile it seemed as if every cosmetic line was making a BB Cream. I usually use Dr. Jart with a SPF. This month, Birchbox introduced me to Supergoop! The CC Cream is the latest craze and Supergoop! made a product that provides corrective coverage as well as a SPF 35. Even better, it protects my fair skin against UVA and UVB exposure.
As a bonus, Birchbox subscribers were offered a free year’s subscription to the essential wellness magazine, Women’s Health. Want to try Birchbox for yourself? Click here for a personal invitation and enjoy the perks of a beauty service tailored to your lifestyle.
Celebrate Earth Day today to save our planet through a partnership between Recycle Across America and Kiehl’s skincare products.
Singer Alanis Morissette and actor Zachary Quinto have collaborated with Kiehl’s to create limited edition designs of the brand-favorite Ultra Facial Cream.
With the purchase of the Ultra Facial Cream, 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Recycle Across America to help make recycling easier and more effective in schools across the U.S.
Working together to save the environment may seem like an impossible undertaking, but it’s the small things that really do make the difference, said Quinto, who will reprise his role as Spock in this summer’s movie Star Trek Into the Darkenss. His inspiration for the product design came from his experience in South America where he felt the most connected to the Earth.
You watch their experiences working with Kiehl’s in the video below, and you can purchase the limited edition designs at a Kiehl’s store and at Kiehl’s.com
