Recap: Birchbox + Juice Beauty Birchblogger Event

On October 9th, Birchbloggers celebrated Juice Beauty's partnership with Birchbox, at the Birchbox SoHO store at 433 W Broadway. The VIP Hour included complimentary instant eye lift treatments from Juice Beauty, hair touch-ups from Number 4 Hair Care, Soda Bar by Brooklyn Soda Works and delicious snacks.  

I was first introduced to Juice Beauty's Stem Cellular Instant Eye Lift when it launched in the spring. The eye mask instantly brightens and lifts the eyes, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It's a quick two-step process: first you pour the entire vial of Activator Fluid on top of the eye masks, then once it is fully soaked in you apply each mask under your eye area and leave on for ten minutes.  It leaves your eyes feeling revived, smooth and hydrated. Each box comes with 6 algae eye mask sets. 

We also got sent home with Juice Beauty's GREEN APPLE Peel Nightly Brightening Pads, which brightens, smooths and corrects skin tone. The bamboo pads are saturated with antioxidant rich organic fruit acids to brighten while extracts of algae, Vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. 

Since I am already a big fan of Juice Beauty's GREEN APPLE Peel Full Strength, I knew I would love this latest addition to the GREEN APPLE product line. The pads are very thin and not overly saturated, yet it does feel like it really gets into the skin. Just after a few days I can notice the difference, and feel this actually does help with brightening. I can't wait to see how it continues to work as I use it through the fall/winter season. 

I also keep Juice Beauty's Reflecting Gloss in Guava in my bag, but since I'm almost completely out of my gloss I'm glad we got one at the event, and this time I get to try it in Pink. The gloss glides on so easily and is smooth and non-sticky.

For my hair touch-up, I decided to have my hair styled half up, half down, with some braiding and loose waves, using Number 4 styling products such as the Thermal Styling Spray and Texture Styling Crème.
