What is Birchbox?
Birchbox is a monthly subscription service in which you receive a variety of beauty product samples, ranging from hair, makeup, skin, and even lifestyle products! It's $10 per month, and if you're interested, you can check it out here!
Here's the motivational little blurb that Birchbox put on their card. I love seeing companies do things like this!
What's in my box this month?
Borghese Fango Purificante Purifying Mud Mask for Face and Body
I am in love with face masks, and I do NOT feel like I ever use them enough. I'm so excited to try this one out! It's a HUGE sample size, too! I've read reviews that say this product works extremely well, as in don't-leave-it-on-for-too-long-or-it'll-hurt well. I have some redness and icky pores that could use a little facial mask help though, so I'm pumped. Maybe I'll do a full review some other time of how it worked.
Juliette Has a Gun Gentlewoman
(Sample Size: .03 oz / $1.88) (Full Size: 1.6 oz / $100.00)
Well, I sprayed this and my first thoughts are accurate to how I really feel about the scent. It's initially kind of spicy, and then it smells like men's cologne. I really didn't get any sort of scent that made me think lady. It smells good and all, but it's just not for me.
Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner
(Sample Size: 2.5 oz / $7.40) (Full Size: 8.45 oz / $25.00)
(Sample Size: .4 oz / $1.37) (Full Size: 8.45 oz / $29.00)
Visanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
(Sample Size: .7 oz / $5.63) (Full Size: 4.23 oz / $34.00)
Benefit Roller Lash Super-Curling & Lifting Mascara
(Sample Size: .1 oz / $8.00) (Full Size: .3 oz / $24.00)
The mascara was the sample choice this month, and there were FIVE to choose from! Because I'm pretty inexperienced with makeup I decided to keep it a surprise as to what brand I got, but I was SO STOKED that I ended up getting one of the Benefit ones!
This is the Benefit Roller Lash, and the idea is that it curls your eyelashes more than anything. As you see in the picture below, I naturally have incredibly thick and long eyelashes. They aren't really straight, but the curl in them is pretty weak.
Wow, Birchbox really stepped it up this month sample size wise! Granted, I didn't get any full size products this month, but with the samples being large enough for me to use a few times, I'm not worried about that at all! It's far better than last month's tiny samples. I did only get one makeup item, like last month, but the products I got are all ones I'd use. Even though I don't like the man perfume, I'm probably still going to use it, just to get rid of it (I do things like that).
Have you tried any products? Do you want to try one? Let me know!
