I got my Birchbox early again this month so I didn’t even have time to check the online reveal before I got my box. let’s see what I got this month!
First Look – ugh perfume again.
Beekind Body Lotion. Value $1.88
This is a lotion made by Gilchrist & Soames. I’ve gotten products made by them in other Birchboxes and they are pretty nice. This is made with honey and chamomile extracts. And has a very light scent. I like this and it went right into my purse.
Dr Brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner. Value $11.75. I love Dr Brandt products (though I don’t love the price!) so I’m thrilled to get this. I will try this out and let you know how it works. It’s supposed to unclog pores and leave you with smoother skin with regular use.
Harvey Prince Petaly Noir. Value $0. Ok I’m giving no value as this perfume stunk to me and it fed the trashcan. I so wish Birchbox would quit sending me perfume. I almost always hate it and throw it out. I have marked in my profile to have no more than 6 per year but seriously I want 0 per year. I don’t even care if I had one less product in my box! Ok rant over!
Lord & Berry Paillettes glitter eye pencil. Value $3. This is a black eyeliner with silver shimmer. I have been overloaded with eye pencils in sub boxes lately. Normally I don’t got for shimmer in my makeup but I think this could be fun for the holidays. It’s small to so I don’t feel like I’m wasting a whole eye pencil by just using it a few times so I think I will keep this.
Model co. Party proof lipstick in kitty. Value $8. I’m not one for lipstick but this is a pretty pink color. It also smells kinda fruity. I will be trading or giving this away.
I calculate a value of $24.63 for this box. This was just an ok box for me though I’m quite happy with two of the products. I just renewed my 1 year subscription so I paid $9.16 for this box. But I also got 110 points (equivalent to $11) for renewing and I will get $5 in points for reviewing the products received on the Birchbox website. So I absolutely got my money’s worth. Here’s hoping next month is a little better!
