Even though I’ve been a Birchbox member for 2 years now (I joined in June, 2011) I’ve never really spent many of my birchbox points because, lezbehonest, I’m a total hoarder and that’s what hoarders do. But they were due to expire, so hence the enormous shopping spree. Some of my points actually DID expire but Birchbox was nice enough to give them back so I could place this order.
I bought 10 items from the Birchbox shop and my total damage was $320.99 – what I actually PAID after my points and using a coupon code was only $31.99!!!! That’s about a 90% discount. Not too shabby I’d say.
What I purchased:
Oscar de la Rena Live in Love ($78) – This actually leaked during shipment and completely absorbed into the box it was in. I contacted Birchbox about it and they sent me a new one with no issues and gave me an extra 100 points for the inconvenience. Excellent customer service!
The Amika Mini Ceramic Styler ($29) was an AMAZING GWP coupon code that I used to make it completely FREE. It’s a pretty small straightener but it’s so cute and it’s fantastic for my bangs. It’s very easy to curl with and it get’s super hot very quickly. I love this thing!
I actually loved almost everything in this order. The Marcelle Twist Push Up Mascara is a really cool concept because you literally twist the tip of the wand and it changes the direction of the bristles, but I didn’t care for the formula. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is freaking amazing. The Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is literally like sex on my hair – I can never be without this stuff again. And if you haven’t tried the Shea Terra Black Soap yet, PLEASE do. It’s very affordable and works wonders on pores. That brand deserves it’s own full review, so I’ll try and get that up shortly.
