birchbox & bb cream

What’s better than a Friday night? A Friday night when your Birchbox arrives, weekend + makeup = win.

Bellinis & Birchbox are the perfect combo, FYI.

I’ve had a pretty good Birchbox run the last few months (full sized products I’ll actually use, samples I enjoy) so I was kind of expecting to be let down by this one. That didn’t happen.

While I love all the goodies Birchbox throws my way each month, my absolute favorite beauty find this year was BB Cream. I use Garnier BB Cream, it’s magical. Moisturizes, evens tone, renews, brightens and it even has SPF.

I realized just how much I loved this product last week. I started using it at the beginning of the summer (and instantly got compliments on my skin) and ran out of that first bottle just last week. Not only will it make you look better, it’s an amazing bargain. I was afraid that the cream wouldn’t last a month and one tube got me through five months !

What’s been your best beauty find in 2012?

if i had a million dollars – $13k moisturizer

Moisturizer for $13,000.   There it is.   Cle de Peau Beaute is releasing a limited edition moisturizer, available this September for a price higher than gold.   For 13k I would hope there’s gold in it, and an aesthetician who comes out and gives you a facial whenever you’d like.    Apparently the high cost of the moisturizer is due to the packaging.   Why use plastic when you can put it in crystal and platinum:

If you’d still like to experience the world’s most expensive moisturizer, Barney’s will apparently have the goods available for about $780 this fall, but no fancy packaging.   No crystal for you.

More amazing than the price tag is the commercial for the moisturizing cream.  Apparently if you buy it you’ll be able to make sexy eyes like Amanda Seyfried, oh and your skin might look good too.  Check out the video below:
