birchbox review
Hey Beauties,

I just received my very first BirchBox!! BirchBox is a monthly beauty subscription service that sends you 4-5 premium beauty samples, all for $10 a month. With this service, you’ll be able to set your profile to receive hair care, skin care, makeup, fragrances and beauty tools, all tailored to your very own preferences. It’s a great way to try a bunch of beauty products without committing to the full retail price. And if you do decide to purchase an item, you’ll already know what to expect! These samples are just enough for a thorough test! It’s perfect for the “beauty enthusiast” or the novice who’s just getting getting started. What better way to shop, right?! I just signed for the very first time and should be receiving the January box next week. Until then, let’s take a look at what I received in December’s BirchBox…

What’s in my BirchBox?

(Malin+Goetz)

Clarifying Clay Mask |Full-size $48
birchbox review
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
Did you think that once you were past your teenage years clear skin would be a given? Urgh, we all did, but thankfully now there is this exfoliating clay mask from (MALIN+GOETZ) to treat oiliness and pesky blemishes—all in less than 10 minutes a week. Formulated for acne-prone skin but safe enough for sensitive, it contains refined kaolin clay to help absorb excess oil and draw out impurities, plus pumice to polish away dead skin. Anti-bacterial witch hazel and anti-inflammatory arnica extract add calming and cleansing powers, helping us achieve matte, breakout-free skin…finally.




Juara

Coconut Illipe Hand & Nail Balm | Full-size $20
birchbox review
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
When it comes to nourishing our bodies, we have one mantra: the more natural, the better. That’s why we’re slathering on the good stuff with this rich hand balm inspired by traditional Indonesian healers. It’s packed with straight-from-the-earth ingredients including illipe butter and sea algae to firm and plump parched skin. A blend of coconut and other natural oils heal and hydrate for hands that are smooth, soft, and healthy as can be.

FratBoy | Full-size, $21

BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
Remember how flushed you’d get after the rush of running into your college crush? Now you can score that rosy glow naturally with theBalm® cosmetics Frat Boy® Shadow/Blush. This talc-free, finely ground formula gives skin a fresh radiance that makes you look—and feel—forever young.

Coastal Scents

styleEYES Eyeshadow Palette – glamourEYES | Full-sixe $12
birchbox review
BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
Few things excite us more than getting a shiny new shadow palette. The only downsides? Not knowing the best way to coordinate shades, and not being able to fit our favorite hues in our clutch. The pros at Coastal Scents fixed these conundrums with these handy mini-palettes. Designed with specific scenarios in mind, these exquisite color collections feature perfectly complementary shades in purse-friendly sizes. The socialEYES palette comes with beautiful, deep neutrals for everyday looks, the formalEYES palette offers lovely nudes and rosy pinks for a big night out, and the glamourEYES collection boasts gorgeous, bold colors for special occasions (or any time you crave a little va-va-voom). Bonus: Each comes with a mirror for on-the-go touch ups.

Atelier Cologne

Pomelo Paradis Cologne Absolue | Full-size $70-$180

BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN
This scent doesn’t just smell fresh and fantastic: It’s extremely well-traveled (we’re jealous, we’ll admit it), with ingredients from all over the world. This fragrance orange blossom from Morocco, pink pomelo from Florida, iris from Tuscany, and mint from China (just to name a few). It builds on the delicate elegance of citrus to create a long-lasting, richly romantic scent.



My Thoughts?

I think BirchBox is a wonderful way to try premium beauty items at an affordable price! You’ll be connected with the latest beauty trends and will experience luxury items, first hands! All for only $10 a month. That’s practically the cost of take-out! I definitely recommend trying it out and if you don’t like it, you can cancel anytime!
