August 2011 Birchbox
After seeing so many disappointed reviews this month for Birchbox, I was hesitant to receive mine. We were quite spoiled after receiving a full size Laura Geller blush, that by comparison a few samples seems like nothing.
I was pleasantly suprised when I opened my box to see 8 items in it.
First, a shampoo packet and a 1.5 oz conditioning mask from No 4 High Performance hair care. I love hair products and can't wait to try this.
Two sunscreen towelettes from Tocca. I've never tried these but will come in handy I'm sure.
A sample packet from Befine food skin care of the Exfoliating cleanser and a .5 oz tube of their Night Cream with cocoa. I am a sucker for skin care also, so I am anxious to try this.
The make-up item was a teeny tiny sample tube of Stila's re-formulated tinted moisturizer in medium. I am just glad the shade is right.
The last little thing in the box was a hair elastic. A piece of shiny black elastic tied in a knot on one end. If someone is actually making money off of these they are genious. Anyone could buy a piece of elastc, tie it together and have the exact same thing. :)
All in all, it isn't horrible for $10. You have to consider that probable $3-4 of that is shipping costs.
I will continue with my Birchbox subscription for now.
What did you get?
