Birchbox Review – April 2014
Birchbox is one of the original beauty subscription boxes, and even though sometimes the samples are tiny, it will always be one of my favorite boxes because of all the new brands I’ve discovered through this subscription!
The Subscription Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free and $10 to spend in the shop with an annual subscription!)
COUPON: Use coupon code SFBB100 to get 100 points ($10) when you sign up for a subscription!
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples selected by the Birchbox team.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and some tips on how to use them.
The theme of the box is rainy days – and making the most of them, so each box included a tip card for how to spend a rainy day.
Harvey Prince Yogini – Sample Value $1.25
Color Club Polish Mini in Heirloom Pearls – Value $3.50
I love the Color Club polish formula, and I’m always happy when Birchbox includes a new shade! (I love that they often do exclusive colors too!)
Sumitas Color Contrast Eyeliner in Jamun – Travel Size Value $7
KIND Maple Pumpkin Seeds Healthy Grains Bar – Value $1
This KIND bar is a lifestyle extra – a bonus item in addition to the 4-5 samples you get each month!
Number 4 High Performance Hair Care Clarifying Shampoo – 1 oz Value $3.75
Number 4 High Performance Reconstructing Mask – .25 oz Value $2.85
I’ve received Number 4 products before in quite a few Birchboxes, so I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get to try more brands that are new to me this month, but these will go to use!
Verdict: I paid a little less than $10 for this box and received almost $20 worth of products. I’m most excited about the Color Club polish, and I can’t wait to try to the Sumita deep purple eye liner – I just need to find the list of ingredients somewhere online! The best part of this box is that it kind of cost me very little when you factor in Birchbox points. I paid around $9 for this box, and I get to review 6 products and get 60 points ($6) to spend in the Birchbox shop, so by my math this box only cost me $3!
