When I went to the Birchbox website, I soon was notified that I had been put on a waiting list for one of these things. They said it would take 6 weeks, but it only took about 3. I received my first Birchbox in the mail Wednesday and I am pretty satisfied with the contents. So, I'm going to share with you what my little box brought me this month :)
I LOVE the pink box. How could you not want a little pink box to show up on your door step every month for $10?
The full contents
This is Nicole Richie's new fragrance "Nicole." I really liked it. It's not too strong or floral. I'm not a big fan of floral scented perfume. I would wear this perfume, it has a very sweet scent.
These LA Fresh nail polish remover pads are pretty great. They smell like heaven and I think I believe their claims that it conditions your nail. My fingernails were really smooth after I used it. It also doesn't smear the old polish all over your nail/fingers as you are taking it off, which is a plus. I would definitely use these, but a box of 20 is $9.99. A little more than I plan to spend on Nail polish remover.
I do have to admit that I have my own crazy 3-tube mascara routine every morning to help out my poor, tiny lashes. However, I do like this Fibre Lashxtend mascara and it's an entire tube. This is $24 in stores. I'd have to say this is my favorite item in the box this month!
How convenient is it to have a mirror for application on the back of the tube? Pretty cool feature.
I really liked this shampoo, it has a very thick consistency. It felt like I was putting a mask on my hair. It smells GREAT (very floral and I'm ok with floral on the hair) AND it was large considering it was a sample.
I liked the skin care collection also, but full price these go up to $175, I think I'll stick with my samples!
Finally, a $50 rent the runway gift card. This is a website you can use to rent designer dresses and accessories for a week. Since I won't be gracing the red carpet anytime soon, this isn't of much use to me. BUT, when I went to the website to check it out, I was surprised. $50 bucks will cover some very pretty dresses. This might be practical for a New Year's Eve party, wedding, etc.
If you have $10 extra a month, I would suggest getting in on one of these. It's just something exciting, who doesn't like a package every month?
