Post-Beauty Box Product Changes

After just one month of beauty box subscriptions, I've already made some changes to my beauty routine.

Exfoliant: The Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Scrub from my June Birchbox opened my eyes to how much smoother an more even my skin could be.  Other exfoliants I've used have had bigger grit but less scrubbing power.  I'll be using the remainder of this before looking for a similar product at (hopefully) a lower pricepoint. 
Primer: The Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer from my June ipsy Glam Bag is another skin-smoothing miracle.  I already ordered a (hopefully) similar primer from because it made my makeup stay better and my skin look more even.
Makeup Removing Wipes: Duh, right?  I'm terrible about removing my makeup in the evening.  I've bought baby wipes for this purpose in the past, but they didn't remove makeup well and were somewhat rough.  After trying the La Fresh Eco-Beauty Makeup Removal Towelettes, I purchased makeup removing wipes (also from  I've actually been removing my makeup for the past few days.  Thanks, Birchbox, you're a good influence.
Concealer: You may think "Jeanne, you didn't have concealer in your beauty boxes."  You're right, but seeing how dark my under-eye circles have become made me want to try to cover them up.  It's not a product from the boxes, but it is a product I desired after actually looking in the mirror.  

I'll start tearing into beauty July beauty boxes in the next few days.  Check back!
