Okay, I got suckered in getting yet another beauty subscription. I got a good deal that came with a gift with purchase. To be honest I only plan on getting Birchbox for a couple months. This box was not bad, just not my favorite. I enjoy getting these subscriptions for makeup products, not as much skin and hair products. Birchbox doesn’t do as much makeup as other subscriptions. That being said, it could amaze me in the next few months and I will eat my words.
There are serious pros to being subscribed to Birchbox though! With this box you can pick one of your samples each month OR pick a the curated box they provide. It is nice knowing you will receive at least one thing that you like! Birchbox also has a great point system. For each product you review you get 10 points, which equals a dollar to spend in their online store. Therefore, if you review your products, you will receive 5 dollars to spend.. You get to buy stuff without spending any more money than you already have!
Here are the products I got this month:
Lipstick Queen “Sailor Queen” Lipstick:
Okay this one isn’t really fair. It did not come as one of my samples, this was my gift with subscribing to Birchbox. It is a blue lipstick, which looks so fun! However, it is a lipstick that reacts with your PH balance to make the perfect shade of berry for you! It is very hydrating, and fun for everyday. I don’t plan on purchasing it again though. I think it is overpriced for a glorified chapstick. The tint to your lips & hydration doesn’t last all that long either. It is still a hit though, because I am happy I got to try it.
LAQA & Co. Avo Lip Butter in Ninza
Lip products are some of my favorites! This was actually the sample that I chose to receive in my box. It is a gorgeous deep berry color. It is pigmented and hydrating and relatively long lasting. It is actually not bad for a sample size too, yes it is small, but it always takes me SUCH a long time to use up a lip product.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
It is dry shampoo, what is not to love? I use dry shampoo all the time! Washing my hair has never been my go to excuse, I hate doing it. This stuff smells great and does the trick for reducing oil. It doesn’t hurt either that the packaging is cute!
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
I am stoked to have gotten this, I don’t have anything like it in my collection right now. My hair could always use some de-tangling. I love that it also protects against hot tool damage, which I use on my hair a lot. It smells amazing, just like the old Pink Sugar perfume.
Dr. Brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant
I have so much skin care to get through right now, but I am still grateful to have received this. I plan on leaving it in my shower, so I can exfoliate my face in the easiest way possible. Dr Brandt is an amazing brand so I am excited to try something new from them. The full size of this product is $79.00, so yeah, this is a hit.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré (24-Hour Miracle Cream)
I am so sick of getting moisturizer. I have a whole bag filled with these types of samples in my vanity. This could be the most amazing moisturizer in the world, but I am still let down. I will use it, I am just not that excited to have received it.
What did you get this month? I would love to know!
