Birchbox January 2013 Review – Monthly Beauty / Makeup Subscription Boxes & Review
Does anyone else get more than one Birchbox subscription each month? For over a year, I have received two subscriptions so I can sample even more makeup items, but for the past 3 months I’ve gotten the exact same box! I’m trying to figure out how to keep getting the variety I was used t0 – if you have any tips please let me know!
The Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (Get a month free with annual subscription)
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples.
100% Pure Coconut Nourishing Body Cream – 2 mL – Value $.15
100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream – 2 mL Value $.15
the Balm Put a Lid On It Eyelid Primer – 3.7 mL Value Value $5.63
At first I was a little bummed to see the body cream samples were in packaging that resembled ketchup packets, but I noticed on the insert that these are a Beauty Extra bonus, and not one of the featured samples in the box, so I’ll let it go! Also, the sample size was more than enough to test out the product, and I’m a fan! The body cream left my skin moisturized but not greasy.
Harvey Prince Skinny Chic – .05 oz Value $2
Clark’s Botanical’s Smoothing Marine Cream – .5 oz Value $33
I’ve heard good things about this cream – hopefully I love it since I have two samples of it thanks to my two identical boxes!
Amika Color pHerfection Shampoo - .68 oz Value $1
I love the packaging of this shampoo, plus it’s sulfate free and smells great! Also, if you are looking to spend some Birchbox points anytime soon, if you spend $75 or more in the Birchbox shop, use coupon code amikacustom to get a free amika Mini Ceramic Styler in Pink Peacock!
Verdict: The value of this box was over $40, which is awesome. I’m excited to sample all of these products so I’m thrilled with this box, I just wish I didn’t have two of them! What did you get in your January Birchbox? Any products you recommend?
