November Birchbox Review

Last month a few Twitter friends suggested that I try Birchbox! With Birchbox, four to five hand-picked deluxe beauty samples are delivered to your door for $10 per month. Mine arrived last Saturday and I’m excited to share what was inside!

My thoughts on the products:

  • Jouer | Lip Enhancer  – Very moisturizing. I can see myself using this before I go to bed since I use tinted chapstick during the day. A .33 fl oz tube costs $14 so I’m going to need to fall in love with it if I’m going to pay that much!
  • Kate Spade New York | Twirl – I really love this scent! Even Adam loved it and so I believe I’ll be buying a bottle! Or adding it to my Christmas wishlist. I haven’t been wearing perfume for awhile.
  • Thymes | Eucalyptus Body Lotion – A very clean scent. I will probably stick this in my purse and use it until it’s gone! Not sure if I would buy a bottle since I use Burt’s Bees Honey + Milk body lotion.
  • Zoya | Nail Polis in Noel – What a fun shade for the winter months! Can’t wait to use it after my current polish starts to chip.
  • Alex and Isabelle | Classic Hair Tie – Seems like a fun piece to use instead of my boring, CVS brand hair ties.
Overall, I think the Birchbox program is really fun. For only $10/month I’m able to try samples of new products without searching or paying full price for the entire product. You also receive 10 points for every month you receive your box and additional points for reviewing the products in your box. For every 100 points, you can redeem for $10.00! Also, for every $1.00 you spend, you receive a point. It’s a great system (especially if you’re planning on buying specific products anyways). I also love that they offer free shipping on all month’s featured products. My opinion? You should sign up! Here’s an invite!
