Hooray for Birchbox

I know I'm late to the sample subscription party, but one of the tactics I decided to use to recapture my spark is a subscription to two of the most popular.  I couldn't decide between Birchbox and ipsy, so for now I'm subscribing to both.  Birchbox came first, so I'll review it first.

The Birchbox subscription is $10 per month with free shipping.  I found a code for 50% off the first month, so my first month was $5.  According to a breakdown on The Subscription Box Family, the total value of the items in the box is $55.81.   I usually don't spend much on beauty products, so the subscription lets me try some higher-end products without spending too much.

The box that came was cheerful.  It's great packaging.  It made me happy to look at it.  It did give me a slightly twisted laugh that the fist box they sent me was curated by wedding blog Style Me Pretty.  Nothing says "recovering from a divorce" like beauty products aimed at brides.

I can see myself slightly modifying and reusing the box itself because it is a nice size for a gift box, and I like the "hooray" message on it.

The box contains:

  • A card with information about the products
  • K√©rastase Exilir Ultime
  • Laura Geller Beauty Baked Color True Blush
  • La Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover
  • Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
  • Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
  • An embellished hair tie from Deepa Gurnani

I'll try and review all of these products tomorrow.  Get ready for beauty!
