Birchbox and Goop Collaboration - October 2012 Review - Women's Monthly Beauty and Makeup Subscription Boxes

I have been anxiously awaiting for my goop Birchbox to arrive! (I picked the transformations theme with my other subscription – so look for that in an upcoming review).

Birchbox and Goop Collaboration - October 2012 Review - Women's Monthly Beauty and Makeup Subscription Boxes

The Box: Birchbox – goop collaboration

The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free with an annual subscription)

Birchbox and Goop Collaboration - October 2012 Review - Women's Monthly Beauty and Makeup Subscription Boxes

Luna Lemon Zest Bar – Value $1.50

Amika Nourishing Hair Mask – .67 oz $4.00

I really like the Amika hair oil I sampled in a previous box, so I’m excited to try this mask.

Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara – .14 oz Value $18.30

I gave this mascara a trial run today. It doesn’t clump at all and adds great length. It’s a great everyday mascara for me because it didn’t flake or smear and it has a natural look – not too dramatic.

DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer – .23 oz Value $11.50

Eve Lom Cleanser and Muslin Cloth – 5 ml and 1 cloth – Value $4.00 for the cleanser and $7.33 for the muslin cloth

Yay! This cleansing system has been on my list to try, but it was a little too pricey to not sample first.

Verdict: I love Birchbox and goop so I was thrilled when I learned about this collaboration – and it did not disappoint! I paid $10 and received over $45 worth of high-quality products. And I will try and use every single item! I also will give feedback on each item and earn $5 to use at Birchbox (check out the tutorial on earning Birchbox points here).

Which Birchbox did you sign up for this month? Any favorite items you would recommend trying?

  1. I got exactly the same items you did too! My only wish was an Essie polish in exchange for the hair mask – but all in all – no complaints! The Eve Lom is AMAZING!!! I may have to splurge!!!

  2. I’ve been wanting to try that hair mask but I didn’t get it. I love Luna bars so that’s nice but not something new to try. Overall not a bad box. I know some have been down on Birchbox but I like it. Though I may have to give it up to continue PopSugar (which nothing compares to.)

  3. I subscribed because I wanted the Essie nail polish, but according to the Web site I’m getting a beautyblender sponge, Luna bar, twistband hair tie (like these but already have some from PopSugar Must Have), Supergoop city sunscreen serum, Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask and Sprout Lip Balm Flights. I’m eager to try the lip balm but otherwise the box is meh. I don’t get how they had a video showing all of the items that would be in the goop box and then I end up with a completely different assortment? Oh well!

  4. I got the exact same box! I was pleased except for the Luna bar which I was allergic to.
