With Birchbox you get monthly boxes of five personalized beauty samples, tailored to your profile. They promise to help you try cult brands, up-and-coming lines, and everything in between. They also say you will never receive the same product twice. Birchbox runs at $10.00 per month plus $4.95 shipping but you can get yearly plans for $100.00 plus shipping as well. This makes it one of the more affordable boxes out there. Each box is different and reflects the theme of the month.
This month’s box is a reminder that You’re Beautiful. Inside are my items, smaller ones bundled inside the turquoise box.
This month they say they are celebrating us, the subscribers. They say thank you for all the interaction and included a gift code to get 20% off in the shop.
100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream-8mL $7.80
This is the best smelling eye cream ever!!!!! I might be odd but to me it smells exactly like the Exhibition, that crazy combo of fudge, candy apples, sugar and deep fried food. I also might be hungry. Anyways…..this uses the caffeine to reduce fine lines and dark circles. It is also a vegan product. I just want to sniff it all day.
BioRepublic Skincare Cucumber Breeze Soothing Mask-$7.00
I have received this mask before in a different box and liked them. After I had finished with it Bug was so intrigued by it that she wanted to wear it as well. Nothing creepier than a four year old in a paper mask looking like a serial killer. This mask helps to calm skin and minimize the look of pores. I do a mask once a week so this will join the que.
Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Blow Dry Spray-30mL $4.51
I don’t use a blow dryer so this will just get used as a spray to hopefully get the growth and volumizing benefits without it. This has ginseng and biotin in it and is supposed to coat and separate each strand. It can’t hurt to use it.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner in Cobalt-$21.00
So this is really blue. Beyond that it glided on like it was a marker and it will not budge from me rubbing it. I wouldn’t normally go for a blue liner but I’m wearing a ruby one today so I don’t see how blue is less odd.
POP Beauty Portfolio Eyeshadow Trio in Sugar Plum-$1.73
This is a really nice set of eyeshadows. I like the plum colour and that you get the three shades for making a complete eye look. I unfortunately dropped this as I was looking at it and the white shade is missing a piece now. They are filled with shimmer and will make a good finished eye for me when I use it.
This months value for this box was $42.04, which sounds great but remember that half of that is the liner. I like the box this month and the only thing I could find to complain about is that it would have been nice if the eye products worked with each other. You get points for reviewing your box items, that you can then use in their store. If you find a product you love, any item in your box has free shipping for the month also. The American boxes do have a few more perks like selecting one of your samples and a mens box but I am hopeful once they get settled in Canada the same types of options will be available.
If you want to sign up send me a message and I can get you a link. You can also go to their Canadian site by clicking here.
