Birchbox Review – May 2014
This month Birchbox teamed up with Kate Spade Saturday, and made the boxes even cuter than usual! I love the black and white print lining!
The Subscription Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free and $10 to spend in the shop with an annual 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 box also included a card with a unique coupon code for $25 off a $75 or more purchase at Kate Spade Saturday.
Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow – .28 oz Value $4.75
Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen in SPF 30 – .34 oz Value $3.40
This BB Cream is paraben-free, fragrance-free and I really like the coverage. It gets great reviews too so I’m excited that this sample should last me at least a week to really try it out and see if I want to buy it in full size.
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink – FULL SIZE! Value $8
I like the Pixi brand a lot, and this lip balm is very moisturizing, I’m just not sure if I can pull off the brink pink color. Even in sheer form – it’s pretty bold for me!
Nexus Color Assure Shampoo, Conditioner and Primer – .77 oz total Value $1.50
I hate foil packet samples, but they made these ones pretty cute!
Smarty Pants Gummy Vitamins – 2 Gummies Sample
I can’t resist gummies and eat any samples I get in subscription boxes immediately after taking the picture! These have a bit of vitamin taste to them (but that’s probably a good thing – if I bought the full size version, I need to only eat the recommended dose per day!)
Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received about $18 worth of items. I’m happy with the majority of the sample sizes, and I think I’ll use everything, (plus I’ll review the products for points) so I think the value is good.
What did you get in your Birchbox this month?
