Birchbox is basically a monthly subscription of beauty samples containing mostly high end products. I have wanted to subscribe for years, but wasn't sure if it was worth the $10/month.
|I like that it came in a pink box :-)|
You take a survey about yourself before they send you your goodies. I preferences curly hair care products among other things. Here is what I got!
-This is basically a hair repair oil that you use after you get out of the shower. I love oils that prevent frizz and this smells like peaches, so I'm sure I will love it!
Juicy Couture La La
-It says this is a mix of "mandarin, red currant, lily and orange blossom." I don't really care what that means, it just smells really good!
Secret Agent Beauty Kiss Kiss Rendezvous
-This is a plumping lip treatment/gloss that moisturizes and leaves behind no residue. The shade looked a little dark for my liking (the color is "foreign-intelligence flirt"), but it went on pretty sheer and really did feel moisturizing. I am impressed with the "no-residue" claim because it stays shiny without leaving behind any colored stickiness.
WEI Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask
-I'm excited to try a good mud mask! I looked it up online and the full-size sells for $42 for 2.4oz. Wowee. I better enjoy my sample version because I will not be forking out that kind of money to put mud on my face.
WEI Pomegranate Buffing Beads
-This is an exfoliate powder that you add with your favorite cleanser to give it a buffing effect. I haven't ever heard of anything like this so I'm anxious to try it.
Ghirardelli Caramel Square
-Ok Birchbox, you understand me. I <3 chocolate!
