A couple of months ago I heard about BirchBox from another blogger. Basically, you sign up for a monthly subscription, and each month they send out a box of assorted beauty samples. Whhaaa?! I love, love LOVE samples, especially the deluxe sized ones, because they usually last quite awhile, and my cheap ass HATES how the good stuff is always expensive.
So yesterday I finally received my January box.
The samples are:
Model Co SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss — a full sized tube!
and two small packets of 100% Pure Nourishing Cream
Now the shampoo was the biggest sample, but unfortunately I can’t use it since I have Keratin in my hair, so I gave it to a friend.
I really dig the color and texture of the gloss (not too sticky, as far as shiny glosses go).
The radiance day cream was nice, and my skin feels extra soft, but I am unimpressed with the SPF 15– I don’t trust anything under 30.
I haven’t tried the lotion packets; to be honest, they’re apple scented, and I’m just not feeling apple as a scent this week.
The Juicy perfume was a good sized sample, and I can dig the fragrance. I have about a zillion bottles and sample vials of perfumes, and Juicy doesn’t make my top 5, but it’s a nice one to add to the collection, to keep things fresh when I want some variety.
All in all, I am pleased with the Birchbox subscription so far. It’s a great monthly treat for only 10 bucks, and I love surprises.
