Review: Birchbox- January


I signed up for a Birchbox subscription box. It's only $14 a month and this month's box came with 4 products.


What was in this box?

Daily Concepts Multi-Functional Mother of Pearl Soap Sponge. 
TLW Let's get Naked Frizz Fighter for hair. 
Lipstick Queen Shade Shifter lipstick. 
Acure Seriously Soothing Under Eye Hydrogels. 

This was supposed to be in the box and wasn't. 
Grande Cosmetic Grandeprimer. 


So I was supposed to also get the Gradeprimer- mascara primer but it wasn't in the box. I will contact them and see if they can replace it. 

The lipstick goes on clear and changes color to a light peach. It's actually a really nice color. The sponge soap smells so good. I'm not sure if it's wrapped in a sponge or what but the soap is in the middle of the sponge and it's kinda scratchy to rub on your body. It works really good if you have oily skin though because it's a soap and dries your skin out a bit. So if you have oily skin on your face this actually works well for that and it smells like baby powder which I love. 

The anti frizz hair cream is nice and did tame the frizziness but not enough that I didn't still have to straighten my hair to get all of it out even though I have straight hair. 

The hydrogels for your eyes are funny. They are cooling but they didn't decrease any puffiness around the eyes that I have. 

I like the box it came in as well because the drawer pulls out. If they start sending boxes like this I will glue them on top of each other and have a little box of shelves that pull out. 

So for the most part I really liked this box of products. 

Did you get this box?

    1. You'd probably like this soap then. It smells really good too.

  13. The anti-frizz sounded good, but too bad it wasn't more effective. The lip gloss looks like a real winner. Yes, I'd try to make a set of the boxes into a small chest of drawers, too.

  14. Mary, this is my first time visiting with my smartphone. I love that your mobile page is white and offers social share button. On the full website I can't share and tweet your post. I am bummed about the eye stuff as that would be nice. The chest of drawers would be great.

  19. That's too bad the anti-frizz wasn't better. At least it worked somewhat. I am to hear you liked the lipstick. What a cool box with the little drawer! It's a multi-purpose box. :-)
