Birchbox February 2013

21 Feb


This month’s Birchbox was another good one. I was originally hoping for some Lancome goodies, but was actually happy with all the non-Lancome items I received. Part of the fun of Birchbox is that there are a ton of combinations so the boxes are all different. You never know what you might get… What was in my box:

Ghirardelli Chocolate Square: This was fine. I would have rather had another make-up item.

Twistband in Brown: This is actually cute and useful. I will use it to pull my hair back at the gym or when I wash my face.

Vasanti Face Wash: I really love this one. I tried it last night and it does a great job of cleaning and smells nice. My face looked brighter! I also appreciate that it has ‘real’ packaging.

Nicole (by Nicole Richie) Perfume: Not really a fan of the scent. Smells too mature for me.

Color Club Mini Polish: I was actually hoping for the green vs. red color, but the red is nice. The sample size on this is perfect!

Also, I’ve been reviewing all my items on the Birchbox site earning points for future purchases. I’ve already earned $10. Looking forward to March!


Birchbox January 2013

24 Jan

ImageI received my very first Birchbox today!

Me: “My Birchbox arrived, yayyy!”

Husband: “Is there wood inside?”

For $10 a month you get a nice box of beauty samples, sometimes even full size items! It’s a fun surprise and you can cancel at any time. Here’s what was inside mine:



The best item was by far the full size Model Co. lip gloss in ‘showgirl red’. It’s very sheer and looks great. I also love the little mirror on it. I’m excited about the No 4 clarifying shampoo and the mini Caudalie radiance cream also seems promising. The rest of the samples are nice too, but I really prefer real packaging to the funky little flat plastic magazine sample styled items. 

Looking forward to my next Birchbox already!
