Birchbox

Another month, another box! While there are a couple of things in there I like, overall I found this month’s box underwhelming. One thing I wish they would do is stop giving out perfume samples. These little vials are so easy to get with beauty orders that they feel like such a lame sample to get. Also, the skin care items are in little foil packets. They don’t have enough to be all that usable. The skin care samples are a set of 3, and I would prefer one decent sized sample to 3 tiny ones.

An extra was a “gift card” for Madewell, but it was $25 off a purchase of $75 or more. That is NOT a gift card, please don’t call it one. The Tili bag is cute, but I don’t travel often and can’t see myself using it anytime soon. It looks like it is meant to keep products from ruining your luggage should they accidentally open up. It is cute, but looks like a zip lock bag with a cute pattern on it.

I did, however, love the nail polish and the Twistband. I have used and like Color Club polishes, same with the Twistband. Orange is one of my favorite colors, so I know I will wear the Twistband often. The Color Club polish I believe is called Status Update, even though Status Uptade is printed on the bottom. It is a dark charcoal grey.

This month’s box contained:

  • Color Club nail polish in Status Update
  • Kate Spade Twirl Eau De Parfum spray
  • Sedu Anti–Frizz Polishing Treatment with Pure Argan Oil
  • Twistband
  • WEI to Go Sleep Over Kit
  • Tili bag (extra)
  • $25 “Gift Card” to Madewell (extra)
  • Tristan Prettyman digital download (extra)

Birchbox* prices vary by subscription level.

    I would have been very disappointed with this box. Perfume samples are ridiculous to count as anything and I agree, those gift cards are not a gift!
