My First Birchbox!


In case you haven’t heard, Birchbox is a company that delivers hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples for $10/month. If you decide to join, there is a small waiting time after signing up before you are invited to subscribe. A couple weeks after signing up, I finally got the email letting me know that I could subscribe and my first Birchbox arrived about a week later! Here is what came inside my November box:

1.  Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur

2. ModelCo FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara

3. One Love Organics® Aromatic Body Serum

4. Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray Travel Size

5. SOYJOY Cranberry Snack Packs

My Thoughts: I do like the perfume scent, although it is a little sweet and seems more like a spring or summer scent. The mascara goes on smooth without clumping and it is super lightweight, giving your lashes a more natural look. The fibers do seem to make my lashes longer, but they lack the volume and fullness that I prefer. The scent of the aromatic body serum is okay, but it’s not really something that I would use. The SOYJOY cranberry bar was flavorless and just plain gross to me. However, the Oscar Blandi Texture & Volume Spray works like a charm on my curls and is definitely my favorite item in the box.

Looking forward to the December box! (P.S. this is a great Christmas gift idea!)
