I’m pretty sure Birchbox is the subscription box that started it all. I never subscribed to it because I didn’t like the idea of paying $10 for samples. From what I noticed there isn’t a set list of items that everyone gets, like in POPSUGAR. Which I really hate, I would prefer if all boxes were the same. The cost of the box is $10 and free shipping. You will receive around 5 samples each month!
I love how the boxes have a new cute design each month!
Model Co. Party Proof Matte Lipstick – Set of (3) $20
I got mine in Dusk Till Dawn, which is the name of my Aunt Dawns boat, haha. I’ve received some of Model Co. products before in other boxes and my feelings toward them have been pretty neutral. But I absolutely love this lipstick. It is my favorite item in the box by far. The color is beautiful and it is soft on your lips and glides so effortlessly. Plus, I really like the container. Overall, I really like this lipstick and I’m glad I got it.
Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Highlighter – Full Size $12.75
I received this FULL SIZE!
At first I thought this was nail polish, but I was ecstatic to find out that it was actually highlighter. I used to use Benefit High Beam Highlighter, but stopped a few years back when I was still in High school and didn’t have a job and found $26 to be very expensive for makeup. I remember that one being very thick and sticky, this one is 90% water so it is very light and does not clog any pores. The lower price point and bring pimple free is looking pretty good to me!
Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray – Full Size $24
I was nervous to use this at first because for some reason I thought it was a oil, and I have very thin hair and oil weighs my hair down, but its actually a very light weight spray. This is so much better because it will be able to volumize, smooth and protect my hair. It has an interesting smell, I say interesting because I can’t really pin point what it is. Overall I do enjoy the scent that the spray has. The spray makes my hair super soft and keeps my flyways tamed when I blow dry my hair. I favorited this item on birchbox!
Embroyalisse Lait-Creme Concentre 24 Hour Miracle Cream – Full Size $16-$28
Apparently this is a primer and a makeup remover all in a face lotion. Its a very light weight lotion with a light scent. I don’t know why but I’m not particularly crazy about this lotion. Maybe its the feel of the bottle its in, it reminds me of like an prescription ointment cream that you have to take instead of a luxurious cream that you want to treat yourself to. Other than that the cream is fine!
Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Facial Wipes – Full Size $5.99
I have been a fan of Yes To for a while, I currently own the full size of these wipes and the day before I got this box I bought the grapefruit wipes also. I am plenty stocked on Yes To wipes at the moment. Not only are they great at getting makeup off and cleaning your face I like to carry them in my purse and also they are so great for traveling. I just came back from Florida and I always like to carry these to wipes my face on the plane and wipe down the seats and trays. These are a Must Have in my book.
Overall I really enjoyed this months birchbox! I got to experience new brands, new items from brands I did know, and add to my collection of what I have already! Starting to really love Birch box. What did you think of this months box?
