Birchbox - January



The theme for January's Birchbox was Clarity. This is my third month with Birchbox - check out what I got in my November and December boxes.


  

I received these samples:
    • Algenist - Firming & Lifting Cream
    • FIX Malibu - Immaculate Complexion Smoothing Serum
    • Juicy Couture - Juicy Couture fragrance
    • Zoya Nail Polish - in Kendal
    • 'wichcraft - granola (this month's Lifestyle Extra) & a Birchbox magnet

My only issue this month is that my Juicy Couture fragrance sample was completely busted when I opened my box. Funny thing because the box had such a strong scent when I cut it open (before reading the card to see what my samples were). There were small fragments of glass everywhere & I was so confused as to where it all came from. Then I noticed what happened. Well, no fragrance for me but I will tell you that it smelled really good. I definitely think it is a scent I would pick for myself.
So in essence I got to try it out...but then again, not really.


Are you a member of Birchbox yet? If so, I'd love to know what you got!
It's only $10 a month & so far, I have found new beauty products to add to my arsenal.
You can sign up here!

I love the idea of getting a box each month, but it always look like little sephora samples you can get for free? Not sure even for $10 a month if it's worth it, do you really like yours? Love reading your shares though, I can live through your boxes.

oh no! that sucks about the fragrance. Thanks for the review though, it's always fun seeing what everyone gets.

We did get the same birchbox! Sorry to hear the parfum was busted...mine was in tact but it did have some leaking because you could see some 'water' around the cardboard of the fragrance.
