Birchbox x Kiehl’s On-the-Go Kit Review


You’ll find an info card inside the clear pouch that goes over the eight items included in the kit.


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, 0.25 oz. – Estimated Value $4.41 (Buy the full-size 1.7 oz. for $30.00)

I am digging this nice light facial cream. Nothing too fancy here- just great moisture that isn’t too heavy and can be worn evening and morning after cleansing. I’ll be using a little extra of this on drier parts of my face like my chin that tends to get a little chapped and red.


Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, 1.4 oz. – Estimated Value $7.59 (Buy the full-size 5.9 oz. for $32.00)

I’m not normally one for facial oils because they don’t quite give me the fresh clean feeling I’m looking for BUT this one helped me out in a clutch moment and I’m thankful I had it on hand. I tend to experiment with makeup at the worst times and when I tried to do a fun dramatic look for Halloween before going out, I realized I didn’t love it and needed to start from scratch. This oil washed away a ton of winged eyeliner, heavy eyeshadow and dark lipstick in a matter of seconds and made it possible for me to redo a fresh minimal look with no stains left behind. This is a powerful cleanser, and I thank thee!


Buttermask Overnight Lip Treatment, 0.07 oz. – Estimated Value $6.50 (Buy the full-size 0.28 oz. for $26.00)

Oooh, yas. Lip masks have been showing up on my doorstep a lot lately and I’m here for it. The very name “buttermask” really puts my expectations where they need to be for this super creamy soft product. Per usual, only a small amount is needed and this thick solid turns into a heavy hitter of a lip mask upon contact with my sensitive kisser. This has got to be one of my favorites just because it’s so substantial but hydrating. Very much recommended for the season!


Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, 0.17 oz. – Estimated Value $5.30 (Buy the 2.5 oz. for $78.00)

I’m a huge fan of the consistency of this serum concentrate. It has a soft silky texture and really does feel plumping just like its name. It’s like enveloping my face in a soft blanket of hydration that makes me feel more perky and youthful with the help of plant-based glycerin and Japanese shiso leaf extract. This is definitely something I’d consider getting a full-size version of even with the hefty price tag.


Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask, 0.5 oz. – Estimated Value $6.62 (Buy the full-size 3.4 oz. for $45.00)

This is one of my favorite items in the kit! This mask is so wonderfully relaxing and soothing, I just love it! I also can’t get over how wonderful it smells- it’s like an herbal tea for your face! I like to use this on a quiet evening while I’m getting some reading done and listening to some spa music in my bedroom. After just 5 minutes, this transformed my mood as well as my skin.


Youth Dose Eye Treatment, 0.10 oz. – Estimated Value $7.80 (Buy the full-size 0.5 oz. for $39)

Hello, old pal. This is the third time I’ve recently gotten this eye treatment in a box and although I can’t get myself to use it consistently, I appreciate that it’s tinted to give a quick boost under the eye and work as a light concealer. It contains pro-retinol, vitamin C, and grape seed extract that have anti-aging properties.


Creme de Corps Rich Nourishing Cream, 1 oz. – Estimated Value $4.29 (Buy the 4.2 oz. for $18)

“Nourishing” is the perfect word for this body cream. It has a really substantial thickness to it almost like frosting and has wonderful oils (like avocado and soybean) that slowly absorb into the skin to give mine a healthy glow. There really isn’t a prominent scent here and this will be fantastic for the cold months!


Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil-to-Foam Body Cleanser, 1.4 oz. – Estimated Value $4.83 (Buy the full-size 8.4 oz. for $29)

I was not expecting much out of this oil to foam cleanser as much as I do! This smells heavenly due to the light vanilla scent and doesn’t feel oily at all but gives me a nice lather in the shower. It leaves my skin feeling soft and touchable- so much that I kept feeling my own arms and legs afterward. 😂 This chubby little bottle should last at least 5+ showers, I think.

Verdict: I think that the Birchbox x Kiehl’s On-the-Go Kit is a great buy for just $17! It’s really convenient that it comes in a resealable pouch and it would make a great buy for an upcoming trip since it includes so many necessities. I estimated the six travel-size items’ total retail is about $47.34 which is $30 more than the $17.00 cost.

  1. I waited alot for this kit to go on sale but eventually bought at full price along with other items during 40% off sale. Still saved shipping charges 😃.It is due to arrive this weekend.l, can’t wait to try all the items.

  2. I’m so glad I caught this post while the kit was still available! I’ve really been wanting to sample more from Kiehl’s after falling in love with their Midnight Recovery Oil.

    I’m not a current Birchbox subscriber, but I was still able to sign into my old account and purchase this kit. Good to know! I’ll keep an eye on their kits from now on. I was with Birchbox for about a year but decided to switch things up when they increased their subscription price and now I’m with Allure. I loved Birchbox, but their samples are so teeny tiny! I can get more band for my buck elsewhere.

  3. I bought this one with the extra 20% off which brought it down to just under $14. It’s currently in transit to me and I can’t wait! I’ve been loving kiehls after a decade long hiatus. I think it’s the simple effective formulas, super clean packaging and aesthetic. And lower price point. Can’t wait to try the kit.

    • Becca Where did you get an extra room 20% off coupon? Did I miss that somewhere 😕

      • Had to grab one. I love everything Kiehls. After a discount they sent to me, free Ace shipping, and using my loyalty points, it was a steal

      • Lol, extra room?? Sorry, nothing to do with a room. Just wondering about the coupon. 😂

    • How do you get the extra 20% off?

  4. I bought this kit and am loving it! It’s a great way to try Kiehl’s without the hefty price
    Tag! Not one else not even Macy’s sells a kit for this cheap.

  5. This kit was a winner for me. I liked every item except the hydro plump serum. It’s funny you thought the mask smelled like tea. I thought it smelled like candy 😋

  6. This is nice for 17! Think I may grab this one. I’ve only tried their ultra facial cream so this may be perfect fot me, thanks for the great review!
