November Beauty Box: Birchbox

So, I kind of called out Birchbox in my post for Ipsy this month. and yes, they deserve it because I got another food item in my box. At least, the other items make up for it, but it still is not okay to put food in a freakin’ beauty box!

Here’s the box though.. Some pretty good items I think and a little more appropriate than the last couple of boxes.

August Birchbox: Beauty School

August’s Birchbox had the theme Beauty School. Since its August and all the kiddies head back to school this month, the title is fitting. The box and products itself is all about the “tools of the trade” when it comes to beauty. Mine arrived a day early with bright yellow packaging.

The card was a bit different this month with a bit more creative look. Instead of one single card with the items listed, it’s an accordion style card. It explains a few brushes, and how they’re used along with tips on how to get the perfect shave as well as how to read a product label. It’d be nice if they’d continue this every month so there’s some facts or helpful tips like what they have on their website. I doubt they will, but I enjoyed it.

I’m not gonna waste any time today, I’m just diving right in.

Ding-Dong, Birchbox Calling!

So, I started subscribing to Birchbox last month and was super excited when I received my email saying my box had shipped. The day that I saw it would be arriving, I kept refreshing the Track A Package page of USPS begging the postman to hurry up and deliver it faster. Finally around 4pm it had arrived. So pretty and pink it was, I ripped into it.

For $10 I was not let down. Even the inside of the packing box was cute with little stamped world landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, Tower Bridge, Arc de Triomphe and more. Here’s my box:

Here is the description card of what was included:

See it, Hear it, Feel it, Smell it, Taste it…. Birchbox

For those of you beauty box subscribers, or those who are considering doing it. There is some news to share…

July’s Birchbox teamed up with Glamour to put out a fabulous box. “The box takes inspiration from Glamour’s Five Senses of Summer issue and is sure to provide full beauty immersion.” You will receive items in which you can: see it, hear it, feel it, smell it, and taste it. Sounds like a fantastic combination to me and I’m very intrigued to see what they will use to stimulate each of our senses. There’s even a hint that some tasty treat will be used for the “taste it” category(hopefully it’s nothing that can melt in this heat!). For $10 a box, you really can’t go wrong. Most of us throw that amount away on nothing (a trip to Starbucks, two magazines we read once then toss, a fast-food meal we really shouldn’t eat). So, if you don’t subscribe why not try for one month and see how you like it? And, if you do subscribe……Get excited!!

Beauty Box Dilemma

Since starting a blog and following others, I have developed a deep curiosity for these beauty box things I’ve been hearing so much about. I know there is the BirchBox, GlossyBox, JulepMaven etc. But, the point of this post is to simply ask you guys, which do you recommend me trying out first? I only want to do one for now.

I live in the US so I know that effects which ones are available to my region. I love trying new products and I like the concept of getting new things to try every month. So please, if you could suggest one that would be amazing. Let me know which is your favorite. :)
