My December Birchbox came late, but it finally arrived yesterday. There were some shipping errors and yada yada yah… I’m not even really upset that it was late. But alas, here it is my friends. Behold the Birchbox and all of it’s glory.
See what’s inside!
What is Birchbox? Every month Birchbox members receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. It costs $10 per month.
The company has done a really nice job with their packaging. It’s like getting a little gift every month!
This box includes:
- 2 double sided tape strips
- an orange flavored dietary supplement
- Benefit POREfessional face primer
- A multi-purpose oil
- Jouer lip gloss
- Atelier Cologne
I’m not going to review each product in this post, I just wanted to share the contents and my thoughts on Birchbox.
This is my 5th or 6th Birchbox, and I have to say that the quality of contents has gone down since I first started getting them. I used to receive full sized products every once in awhile and samples that I was actually excited to try out. Lately, I received things like granola bars, chocolate samples, and now… double sided tape? And something to mix in my drink? I don’t consider those to be “luxe beauty samples.”
I’m sure that I will end up liking some of the things that came in this box, but I’m having a hard time justifying that this is worth my $10.
On another note, Birchbox is donating 100% of their profits this month to Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization that helps families and children in need. Now that is something I can get behind. Click image to enlarge.
