It’s hard enough to keep our complexions clear in the sweaty summer months without worrying about cakey makeup clogging our pores. To ensure a face free of blemishes we’ve been reaching for mineral-based products, like Pür Minerals’ new CC cream which forgoes fillers and chemical dyes. We’re big fans of the lightweight texture since it doesn’t clog pores or irritate skin. But we wanted even more mineral makeup tips, so we reached out to our Birchblogger community and asked them for their best tricks. Here’s how they’re using these mineral formulas to beat the heat:
Birchblogger ChanelWears shows us how she put Number 4 Hair Care to the test.
Scoring celeb-worthy curls sometimes requires using products and tools which can sap strands natural moisture and leave them looking dull and brittle. It’s easy to forget that while we’re in the process of making our hair look good, that can sometimes prevent it from looking naturally healthy and shiny.
Number 4 Hair Care is one brand that we can’t get enough of because their products tackle damaged hair and restore its natural sheen. Besides the chic, minimalist packaging that makes our shower feel über sophisticated, we love that their formulas are sulfate-, paraben-, and gluten-free, and 100 percent vegan. Not to mention that they’re gentle on our locks while still being totally effective. The natural blend of ingredients helps reverse color fading, brittleness, and dullness.
Last month, we invited our Birchblogger community to try the Number 4 Hydrate and Style Kit containing their L’eau de Mer Hydrating Shampoo, L’eau de Mer Hydrating Condition, and Blow Dry Lotion. Read more to find out what our bloggers noticed after trying these products:
Winter weather is still lingering here in New York, and we’re antsy for spring to arrive so there can be an end to all this dry air and parched skin. Our favorite trick to fake blooming season? Indulging in the scents of our favorite flowers with a mini pampering. That’s why we invited our community to a shindig last month with a little help from our friends at Jouer. We gave a few lucky Birchbloggers the opportunity to try the gardenia, jasmine, and honeysuckle-scented Body Butter and Signature Rollerball Fragrance. Here’s what three bloggers had to say about these spring-scented picks:

'Tis the season of decadent desserts and food! There's no better way to celebrate the holidays with your families than with delicious chocolate, which is why we asked you in early December to tell us your favorite cocoa-based recipes. We have to admit, it was very difficult to choose amongst your submissions—chocolate is our all-time favorite! In the end, though, we picked one recipe that we can’t wait to whip up and enjoy next to a fire:
