February Birchbox

My first Birchbox arrived this morning!!

To be honest I wasn't super impressed but I've looked at some other peoples boxes this month and they got some better stuff...I'm going to give it 3 more months and see how it goes. Maybe I shouldn't judge until I try some of the products. I'll let you know.

What is Birchbox?

Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets, without any fuss. Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.

Each month, you'll receive a selection of 4-5 samples that we’ve tried (and retried) ourselves. You'll receive anything from skincare to makeup to cult beauty tools, from well-known brands as well as emerging gems. Check out our products here and our ever growing list of brand partners here.

THE COST...is just $10 a month with free shipping. So if you like to try new products it's a good deal. My thing is, I LOVE GETTING MAIL!

I opened the package and this is how it looked inside. Nice presentation huh?

What's in my box!

My favorite thing to try is these EYE ROCK designer liners. With these you can achieve the perfect cat eye by sticking them on like a sticker. (I'll let you know)

It came with 4 sets

Next up you see Jouer moisturizing lip gloss (it's tiny), Showstoppers fashion tape (2 peices of tape), Colorescience pro glow and go travel puff...what the hell is that??? I'll test it soon.

They also gave some free songs away from the band Green River Ordinance for the IPOD.

So what do you think? Do you think it's worth the $10 a month? You can visit the website and see what all the FEB samples were. Each box is different. If your interested you'll have to sign up and wait a couple of weeks until they have a free spot open. Maybe this is a sales pitch, it worked on me.

Hope everyone had a great Valentines Day! :)

I also received the Eye Rock eyeliners and the Colorscience glow and go puff but haven't tried either out yet. I got the Juicy perfume sample last month and already ran out of it! I loved it!

$10 is such a great price! Especially since it is free shipping. I have played with the idea of starting to get Birchboxes myself. The only thing that holds me back is that I always get samples at Sephora and Neiman Marcus when they hand out freebies, and then typically never try them! Oh well. Let me know how the next few months go!

Did you get the pastel nail polish Megan? I know a lot of people that got it.

I'll keep you updated Sam :)

This was my first Birchbox too, and I got the same stuff. Not super impressed either. I am hoping next month is better!

I feel like the people who had their first box this month got all the leftovers from the last few months. :(

I did OK, I was surprised that I got a full size lipstick this month. Too bad I'm not really into lipstick...

I did my unboxing and review here:
