My very first Birchbox arrived today.
What is a Birchbox?
From their website... "Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch."
It's $10 per month if you do the month to month program or $110 for the year. I was intrigued by the promising list of brands on their site and signed up for a box to try.
What did I get? A Bvlgari perfume sample, a mini pomegranate bar soap, 2 small packets of Jouer moisture tint, a Jouer sample lip tint and a tiny sample of Erno Laszio serum...
I knew this was going to be a hit or miss situation, and unfortunately, it was a miss for me. I wasn't keen on the products, and they weren't exactly premium sized. I'm on the fence about renewing, perhaps just another month to see if it gets better? Have you tried Birchbox? What are your thoughts on this? Should I give it another go?
