As usual, I am late to the game. What game you ask? The Birchbox game!! I have done a couple of other subscription boxes…GlossyBox (too expensive) and Ipsy (always felt like I got a “leftovers” bag)…but I have always been reluctant to try Birchbox for some reason.
First of all can we just talk about how beautiful this packaging is? I loved opening it and seeing “you’re beautiful”. Way to make a great first impression Birchbox!!
I have to preface this post by saying that I am very brand loyal to certain products. I am very particular about what shampoo/conditioner, foundation, and eyeliner I use. I have been using the same products for those things for years and will probably not change anytime soon. Anything else I am game to try.
It seems like every GlossyBox or Ipsy bag I would get would always include an eyeliner, a bronzer, a bb cream, or something else I would just honestly never use. I got tired of wasting money on things I wouldn’t try so with Birchbox I tried to be as honest as I could with my profile and tell them the types of products I wanted to try. I can honestly say I was not disappointed at all with my first box!!
Here’s what I got…
Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris perfume / Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner / Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Cleanser / Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen / Malin+Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer / Number 4™ Lumiere dhiver Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil
Yes, this box did contain an eyeliner, but luckily for me it is one of my friends favorite so she gets a little bonus from Birchbox this month. HA! The Catherine Malandrino perfume smells amazing and I have been wanting to try a new sunscreen so those products will definitely get used. I actually have a couple Malin+Goetz products but have not tried either of these so I am super excited about them!!
Overall I am very pleased with my very first Birchbox and can’t wait to see what I get in the future. Just to clarify, this post was in no way sponsored by Birchbox, I paid for the subscription myself and I just wanted to share with you what I got. If you think you may want to try Birchbox you can use this link and help me get points so I can buy some of my fave products, LOL!!
