C: I received my Birchbox today, usually this is a super exciting day for me (I know… must get a life) but the past couple of months I have been a little disappointed with my boxes. I am not sure if this is just because the initial novelty of my beauty box subscription has gone, or… the boxes have got worse?! So here is what I got this month, and please let me know what you think!
So this is how my box came packaged. You can’t see the products very well in the photo but I just wanted to show you all the cute make up bag everything came in. It is super cute and goes well with this months holiday theme, however I must point out that its quite small and being a beauty addict my every day products wouldn’t fit in here! (Update: my little make up bag just broke after using it for the second time!) But anyway, here is what I got:
And a little close up of the eyeshadow:
So lets start with the eyeshadow. This is from “Wild about Beauty” and is in the colour “Fern” – Full sized and costs £13. I thought I had the wrong colour in the box, as to me ferns are green… but I checked on the Birchbox website and this is indeed the Fern colour. I like it actually though, especially the little bee!
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect – RRP £20 sample is worth £3. A leave in conditioning spray to help detangle and protect against sun and heat damage. My hair is super knotty and I always have to use a detangling (is that a word?!) product so I will definitely try this out.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Refreshing Bath Shower Gel – RRP £7.15 sample is worth £0.51. I have heard of this brand before but it has never appealed to me. I can certainly get some use out of this sample – everyone washes – but to me Birchbox is about trying brands that are more high end so you can try before you invest.
Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Microderm – RRP £25 sample is worth £7.35. A product I have never heard of before, however microderm products are usually too harsh for my sensitive skin – something I have filled out in my beauty profile – so I will try this, but doubt it will work well for me.
And lastly I received a sample of the Liason De Parfum in Stay With Me and the first chapter of The Proposal by Tasmina Perry – something that I wont read as I will be super annoyed if I like it and then have to wait for the rest of the book to be delivered!
So the total worth of the box is £23.86 plus the make up bag and little extras which is very good considering the box cost me £12.95 including postage. However, I am still not excited about it? I will get some use out of all of these products but nothing jumps out at me as being super amazing. So what do you guys think? Should I keep my subscription or try out something new? I am leaving it down to you! #twolittleowlsblog
