Birchbox Review – January 2014
Birchbox is pretty much the original beauty sample subscription box. I’ve been subscribing for years, and even if some months aren’t my favorite, I really love this subscription – I’ve discovered most of my favorite beauty brands through Birchbox!
The Subscription Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free with an annual subscription)
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples selected by the Birchbox team.
Each Birchbox comes with a card detailing the items included for that month. This month they also included some inspirational cards for starting 2014 off right:
I love these! I think at least one or two are going on the wall by my desk!
And on the back of each card there are ideas and tips for making the most of your new year. Now on to the beauty samples!
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle – 1 oz Value $2.75
Inika Mineral Eye Shadow in Eternal Marine – FULL SIZE! Value $20
I use Inika’s foundation and bronzer daily, so I was thrilled to see their eye shadow in my Birchbox! (Inika is an all natural and organic makeup line). I’m used to using pressed eyeshadows or eyeshadow sticks, so if you have any tips for loose eye shadow application let me know!
I can’t believe I got two full-size items in my Birchbox this month! (Hopefully Birchbox is stepping up their game with all the boxes, and I didn’t just get super lucky this month). I think I’m going to save this set for St. Patrick’s Day!
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Perfume Sample – Value $1
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion with Clary Sage – .25 oz Value $2.50
This Burt’s Bees lotion is a bonus Birchbox Find item:
This is probably my favorite Birchbox Find yet – I love Burt’s Bees!
Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received about $33 worth of products. I love everything in this box (minus the perfume sample), and I’m very happy with the value this month.
What did you get in your January Birchbox?
