I am super late posting about Birchbox. I got this box about a week and a half ago… I’ve just been so busy with my food blog that I have been falling behind with my reviews!
The Cost: $10
The Products: Birchbox sends 4 – 5 beauty and lifestyle samples and an occasional treat. Most of the products are high-end brands or newly emerging brands. You can buy full-size products in their shop with the points you accumulate from doing reviews of your samples.
The Concept: Birchbox was created as a way to help consumer test out new products without having to spend a lot of money on full-sized products you may not like.
Other Reviews: You can read my past Birchbox reviews here.
The COUPON: Use code BBSUBYEAR to get an annual subscription for only $99 (normally $110)
Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil – Sample
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer - Retail Value $9
I have this primer from another subscription and I ended up really liking how it made my skin feel. It leaves a very soft, matte finish on your skin and is super light weight.
Smarty Pants Vitamins – Sample
I’ve tried these vitamins several times in the past and they’ve been alright. I am not a huge fan of the flavor, but it is much better than taking a pill!
COOLA Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion – Retail Value $2.66
I love COOLA products and this after-sun lotions has great reviews. I am saving it for days we spend out in the sun at the park or the beach. I am really concerned about taking care of your skin when dealing with the sun, so this is a product that I know I will be buying more of in the future.
Pixi Beauty Shea Lip Balm - Retail Value $4
I’ve only tried a few Pixi products and while most of them are pretty good, this was nothing spectacular. I do like the color and it does feel nice on my lips, but I have a lot of other balms that I do like more.
Thoughts: This was a good box, but not my favorite. I am really happy to get the COOLA and the Smashbox primer. What did you think of the May 2014 Birchbox?
