Disclosure: I was sent this box for review, all opinions are 100% my own.
Hey friends! Have you heard of Birchbox?
It’s a $10 monthly subscription packed with travel-sized beauty samples from both well-known and new brands! If you love trying out new products – you really need to sign up! I have been curious about BirchBox for awhile now – but I was always to scared to commit.
I was excited when the little box arrived at my doorstep – I couldn’t wait to open it to see what was inside! The mystery of it all is so exciting! First off, the packaging is gorgeous I love the blue tissue paper and the box is sturdy enough to be reused as a gift box or drawer organizer too – reduce.reuse.recycle! 🙂
Each box has a card telling you what’s inside – and the different price points of the full-sized versions.
At first glance, I was pumped – I had been wanting to try a dry shampoo forever! Yes, I know everyone and their mom have been on the dry shampoo train for awhile now but I am just SO behind! And once I saw the Cynthia Rowley Black Eyeliner, I could’t wait to try it!
sunscreen: this tube is the perfect to throw in your purse just in case you need to apply it when you’re out and about – it goes on smooth and gives great coverage. I really like the consistency, it’s not oily!
dry shampoo: Can I get an amen? Amazing. Dry shampoo is my new best friend and this stuff smells great and works even better.
nail polish: ehh. It applies too thin and takes too many coats to get real color. Definitely not something I’d purchase.
granola bar: Yum! I love KIND bars so this was a special treat – they’re so delicious and if you haven’t tried the vanilla kind you need to do so immediately!
eyeliner: OH.MY.GOODNESS. I have been wearing this stuff almost every single day since it came. I love it – the applicator is flawless and there’s aren’t any dull points. If you’ve used liquid liner before you know what I’m talking about – when you start to apply it and it comes out strong but fades quickly – so you have to go over the same spot again, which smudges the rest. Does any of that make sense? Well this stuff is amazing. It’s so easy to apply and has true staying power. I will most definitely be purchasing this!
Overall, I think it’s a pretty great value! Sure, I’ll never use the nail polish again but the box has introduced me to other great products like the dry shampoo and that oh-so-fantastic eyeliner! (seriously, I’m obsessed with it). For only $10 shipped to my door it’s a small way I can treat myself each month without feeling guilty for spending a whole lot.
Will I order again? Definitely!
