Birchbox! February 2012

Woohoo! February was a great month to be a Birchbox subscriber. By the way, holy crap, I actually got my Birchbox before the end of the month!!! This is the quickest I’ve ever received it, and it’s all thanks to Birchbox dropping Streamlite and switching to UPS. Stellar move :)

Birchbox! December 2011

My December Birchbox came this week! Oh happy times :) This month included six samples (yay!) and surprisingly, I loved them ALL! I think the star of this month was my Benefit POREfessional sample. It reminds me a lot of  Clinique’s Pore Minimizer, except POREfessional doesn’t clump or adversely react to other facial products like Clinique’s does.

Birchbox! November 2011

November’s Birchbox has arrived (finally) lol. This month they included a pretty little surprise! It’s called the BaubleBar Black Wood Pop Bracelet. The first 10,000 subscribers with the most Birchbox points received one. It sells for $20 from baublebar.com so it was definitely a nice little treat to receive :)

Birchbox! September 2011

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.

Birchbox! June 2011

Guess who just got their first Birchbox? THIS GIRL! *harlem shakes across the room*

Birchbox is seriously, THE coolest concept in beauty right now. You pay $10 per month, shipping is free, and you get 4-5 mystery deluxe sized samples AND they will sporadically throw in a full-size beauty product every once in a while.
