Birchbox #1 - Review

Hi everyone!!  You may recall my excitement at receiving my very first Birchbox - or if you missed it, check it out here.   As a product junkie, I was more excited than a kid on Christmas morning to try out my new loot!  I took pics of it, carried it around with me, slept with it under my pillow...well, alright, maybe not THAT excited.

I tried everything out and two clear favs emerged: 

The Zoya nail polish in Sooki.  I love this polish and the color is perfecto!  I've never tried Zoya before but I loved how it dried fairly quickly, stayed super shiny and wore quite nicely with only minor chipping.  I'm going to wear this polish for the holidays since it's the perfect red to get me through Christmas and New Years!

The second item I fell for was this body lotion in Kimono Rose scent.  When I first saw it was "Rose scented" I thought this is going to smell old lady-ish (sorry gramma!)    I was so pleasantly surprised!  They describe it as "Sheer, sensuous rose petal, peony and jasmine is heightened with sweet clementine, cassis and a creamy kiss of vanilla"  Nicely put!  I probably have enough body lotions at home to get me through the next 5 years but this went on so nicely (not sticky or greasy AT ALL) and left my skin so smooth (not to mention the fragrance!) that I put it on my Christmas list for Santa!

Have any of you tried either of these products?  Like?  Didn't like? 
I can't wait until my next delivery!
