I love getting things in the mail and the idea of a mystery box, so after the Julep Spring Mystery box disappointment I began to look into other affordable subscription boxes.
This Birchbox was my very first, and so far I’m convinced to keep the subscription. For only $10 a month, it’s a great way to try out new products that you may not otherwise know about. It’s also at the perfect price range where I didn’t have too high of an expectation, and won’t be too disappointed if I didn’t get things I would use.
This month’s box came with 1 year subscription to Women’s Health magazine, which I decided to pass because for some reason I already receive them without ever have signed up. The rest of the box content include:
- Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On
- Joie Perfume Sample
- LAFACE Laboratories PUR Purifying Facial Wash
- Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick
- Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir
So far I’ve only tried the Joie perfume and the Simple Eye Roll-On, the perfume actually smell very good and the scent lingers throughout the day. As for the eye roll-on, I don’t really have any eye area problems so I can’t tell if it actually makes any difference. The Mirenesse lipstick is a bright red, I’m probably going to save that one for a future giveaway as I look very silly with red lips.
If you love trying new beauty products, Birchbox is definitely an option you’d want to consider. I’ve even bought my husband a 3 months gift subscription to Birchbox Men so we can both receive something in the mail every month!
