Last month I signed up and received my first Birchbox. For a $10 per month subscription you receive a box of surprise luxury samples and POSSIBLY a full-sized product. Last month, I was amazed at the contents of my box and I did receive one full-sized product. I have to admit, this month I am a little underwhelmed. I’m just being honest here and we are all entitled to our opinions. Let’s take a look:
I thought the Cynthia Rowley overlay on the Birchbox was very nice:
The details on all that’s inside the box:
Now let’s see what’s inside:
Of course, I was excited to see a Zoya polish in the box and then I realized it wasn’t a full-size but a half-size. I was bummed. The second item I was not overly excited to see is another lotion (hand cream, to be exact). My first Birchbox contained a body lotion. Of course, Birchbox can’t know that I am filled to the brim over here with lotions…and samples of lotions. Birchbox also doesn’t know that I am pretty over the whole lotion thing and am so impressed with organic body oils that I may never want to use a lotion on my hands, or legs, or anywhere again. Strangely, I was kind of eager to try the Kind bar, it sounded yummy! Update: I did try it…and it IS yummy! I’m happy about the Philosophy cleanser and curious about the Redken spray. I know that was quite a bit of complaining, but I’m being honest.
I will stay positive for next month’s Birchbox, no doubt. I still like surprises :).
Have you signed up for Birchbox yet, if so do you LOVE IT??
