Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Box

Birchbox’s newest Limited Edition box went up for sale a few days ago, and of course I bought it immediately! I think the Lovely Day Limited Edition Box is great for a Mother’s Day Gift, or for yourself!

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Nails Inc

Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in Mayfair Lane – Value $15

Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in Porchester Square – Value $15

These nail polishes are designed to give you a gel look, without the actual gel process (AKA no UV light needed, and you can remove the polish with regular nail polish remover). I LOVE these colors, so I can’t wait to try this formula out.

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Living Proof

Living proof.® Perfect hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector – 1 oz Value $7

I really like the Living proof line – all their products are paraben, sulfate and phthalate free, and they smell SO good! I hadn’t tried this new Night Cap perfector yet, so it was the first item out of the box I tried! I applied it to damp hair, and let it air dry. It didn’t weigh down my hair at all, but I could notice less frizziness, more softness, and it made my hair smell amazing!

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel in Hammam Delight – 50 ml Value $3.75

I’ve sampled this line before, and I like the gel-to-foam formula, but I’m not sure this scent is for me. I don’t mind it, but I’m not in love with it either.

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Lipstick

Jouer Hydrating Lipstick in Lola – Value $24 (Colors will vary)

I lucked out with the color I received – it is a few shades darker than my natural lip color and perfect for a subtle makeup look.

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Cargo

Cargo Powder Blush in Cannes – Value $26 (colors will vary)

My first thought when I saw this color: I guess I can’t luck out with every color variation! But, it turns out this color actually just adds a subtle sun-kissed glow – I’m really glad I tried it out instead of just assuming the color wouldn’t work!

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Cream

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – 10 ml Value $26

This is a good sized sample (it’s 1/3 the size of the full-size version). The formula is very lightweight and lightly scented too. (FYI for swapping info – this sample comes sealed with foil beneath the cap).

Davines Anti Aging Hand Cream – Value $14

This is a pretty thick hand cream, but it absorbs very quickly. I like the fragrance too!

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Candle

Greenleaf Bella Freesia Candle Tin – Value $10

Since this is a spring-time box, I was expecting the candle to have a floral scent, but it’s more of a unisex scent. (I verified this with my husband just to be sure). We both like the scent, so that’s a nice surprise.

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Tea

Harney and Sons Fine Tea Wrapped Sachets (7) – Value $3

As someone who drinks several cups of tea a day, I’m always happy to get tea in a box! The flavors included are:

  • Earl Grey Supreme (2)
  • Hot Cinnamon Spice
  • Pomegranate Oolong
  • Organic Green Tea with Mint
  • Caribe
  • Organic Green

Birchbox Limited Edition: Lovely Day Box Review + Coupon Perfume

Illume Go Be Lovely Demi Perfume in Coconut Milk Mango – Value $14 (scents will vary)

I like coconut/tropical scents, so this perfume is a good fit for me. It’s a good scent for summer too.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $158. I think that value is great – especially because I got this box with a 20% off coupon! I’m also pleasantly surprised that I ended up liking so many of the products – usually with Limited Edition boxes I know I’ll end up swapping/gifting some of the items, but this time I think everything is a fit for me!

What do you think of the Birchbox Lovely Day Limited Edition box?

  1. I had passed on this box until I saw your review. This may now be my most favorite BB ever!! I got my box yesterday. Exact same box as Liz’s. However I had a different shade of lipstick…which I crazy love btw… it oddly matches the blush which I’m so happy about and gives me a nice summer natural look. I also used the 20% code plus had $10 bucks in BB points so my box was under 40! Thanks Liz!!

  2. I think mine got lost in the mail. I ordered the box the day it was listed on the website. Anyone else is still waiting for it to arrive?

    • I’m in the pacific NW and just got mine yesterday.

  3. I paid $9 for this box after coupon and points and I couldn’t be happier. Everything in it was a win for me. I received the same items/colors as you and it fits me to a t. I’m waiting on the nail polish to dry now. Plus the box is beautiful and will repurpose for nail polish box. I may buy this box again lol.

  4. I wasn’t interested in the box until I read the review. Maybe with a code and points I might buy it. I’m interested in about half of the box.

  5. Okay I wasn’t going to get this box, but I ordered one after seeing this review! I used the 20% off code and my points. I can’t wait to get this in the mail. Thanks Liz for the codes and review 🙂

    • Yay! Hope you love it 🙂

      • I echo Stephanie. I have $100 in credit and was on the fence but after the review I know this will be a good treat and I can share some with my mom for mother’s day too. 🙂

  6. Even though I already had this box in-hand and was very happy with it, reading Liz’s review somehow made me even more excited about it. If you combine points and a coupon, this one is a no-brainer.

  7. I got the Jouer lipstick in “Meredith”, which is a really pretty nude pink. The only thing that’s annoying is that I got the exact same lipstick in my Jouer Le Matchbox!!! haha, I guess that’s the risk you have to take when you subscribe to multiple boxes.

    I also got the Cargo BeachBlush in “Cable Beach” and the Illume perfume in “Desert Tulip”.

    I am super happy with this box!!! The value was incredible.

  8. Those nail polish colors are really pretty! I wish I could be sure which lipstick, blush, and perfume I would get. I’m not interested in any of the other products, so not knowing makes this box too risky for me.

    • If it helps at all, you can go to the BirchBox site, click the arrow buttons on the Lovely Day box to scroll through close up photos of the box contents. The possible shade/color options are shown. You will see the 3 color options for the Cargo blush, 6 lipstick shades for the Jouer, and the 2 perfume options. None of the shades seem like a deal breaker for me, so I went for it…

      I just received mine and it is beautiful. The lipstick and blush shades are warm neutrals. This is a perfect gift for my sister’s birthday and I’ll probably order another for myself!

  9. I was so excited to get my box in last night only to discover it was missing a nail polish and the lipstick! Luckily I got the Porchester Square polish. Sent an email to them last night about midnight and by 9 they already replied and said they are sending me a whole new box! Yeah!

  10. Got mine yesterday– it’s ok. Not the best LE ever.

    I DO love the Davines, the Caudalie, and the Cargo (I got Amalfi). And I think I will love the polish – haven’t tried it.

    I like the hair thing and the Rituals (I use those for shaving).

    I hate my hideous old-lady mauve jouer lipstick. And I HATE the cocnut-mango perfume which smells like I spilled a smoothie on my neck. Not a huge fan of the candle, even though I love Freesia… it’s kind of musk-y. And I don’t drink tea but will pass it on.

  11. fyi on their website they list the hydrating lipsticks as gluten free for those of us that need to watch that.

  12. you talked me into using the coupon code + my points for this ! hope my shades are good.

  13. I received a brown lipstick; a great color brown and almalfi pink Cargo blush and all other variations the same as you received. A few of my friends received the peach blush. I am happy with the pink but would love to own both. Lol

    • When I smelled the candle it is amazzzzing. It has a cologne scent but like unisex perfume. Impossible to explain but omg devine !!!!!!

      The shower gel smells just okay in the shower but smells fantastic afterwards as the scent changes. I kept sniffing myself. Plus makes my skin is soooo soft. I want another box.

      The Jouer lipstick is brown.. Creamy and flattering!! The pink Cargo blush in almalfi is great. The gel effect nails is great. I love everything but the perfume scent is nice but not my favorite. 7 luxe tea bags and MORE.

      DEFINITELY worth the price… I want another box. 🙂

  14. Darn it! I wasn’t going to get this box! Now I want it! I didn’t realize the Cargo blush was full size so that’s a plus. I wish the Ritual shower gel/foam was full size because then I would for sure be in – I love that stuff!!
    Question: I have never purchase a Specialty box before- do you get to review just the box or do you get to review the individual items? (points!?)

    • No points.

      • I figured… Thanks for the reply!

  15. Okay, so after seeing your review, I had to order. I hope I get good colors. I had enough points to get this for free, plus the free keychain waiting in my cart. No actual money spent today made it a little more appealing!

  16. I got my box yesterday too, received the Cargo blush in Cannes too, but I’m so jealous of Liz’s lipstick shade, I got it in Meg. I love the smell of the candle and the perfume is to die for. I’m super happy with this box, especially when I only paid $12 for it, I’m ecstatic.

  17. I got mine yesterday too – I can’t believe how quickly they shipped! I got the blush in Cannes as well, and I agree, I didn’t think it would work for me in the tin, but I tried it anyway, and it is actually a really sheer natural color. I think it will be great for summer. Same with the perfume – it fades pretty quickly, but it’s nice and fruity for warmer weather.

    I got the lipstick in Meg, which is a really pale creamy pink. It looked perfect in the tube, but I think it’s a bit too pale when I tried it on. I ended up layering it with a darker rose-pink and that worked okay. I like the texture so much that it makes me want to buy another, darker, color of Jouer lipstick… but that’s the “problem” with these boxes… after getting the entire box so cheap I shudder at spending $24 on a lipstick alone, ha ha. Anyway, maybe after I rack up some more points 🙂

  18. Freesia *is* a flower. 🙂

    • I guess it just doesn’t smell like a typical floral-scented candle – sorry if I didn’t explain that well! 🙂
