Birchbox! September 2011

21 Sep

I finally received my Birchbox in the mail yesterday. It’s so frustrating when you live on the west coast and have to wait for stuff to ship from the east coast! It takes soooo long. And Birchbox unfortunately uses Streamlite, which is the worst shipping service EVER. If USPS takes 3 days to ship a package, Streamlite will take 9 days. I hate them if you couldn’t tell lol.

But annnnyways.. moving on :) This is Birchbox’s one year anniversay box. It was highly anticipated (as usual) and I like almost everything I received, but I admit it was a little underwhelming for an anniversary edition. I think Birchbox needs to either throw in a full size bonus item or more deluxe sized items soon to keep subscribers happy. I’m really not thrilled about getting a vial of perfume considering you can get free perfume samples all over the place.

Here is what was included in my box:

  • LIV GRN C2C Fragrance Collection in Natural
  • Incoco® Nail Polish Appliqué
  • Jouer Lip Enhancer
  • Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer
  • Birchbox Friendship Bracelet

They included a cute little pink friendship bracelet inside each box as an “anniversary” treat. A lot of girls didn’t care for the bracelet, but I like it. It’s quaint and charming, and looks nice stacked on the wrist with a few other peices. And I loe that it’s adjustable so you can size it as needed. The hand sanitizer I love, Jouer lip enhancer I like (just sooo small), and the nail polish stickers I adore but won’t be able to use until I stop getting acyrlics done. The only item I’m not happy with is the perfume because, like I said, those are given away as free samples 24/7.

Even though I thought the anniversary box could have been better, I still love you Birchbox :) Can’t wait to get next month’s surprise.
