January and February have been a great months to be a subscription box member. I really am glad I cancelled a few of my cheaper boxes to get the higher value boxes.
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-in Conditioner - ($19.80) The sample for this came in a Birchbox exclusive box I was able to buy with my Birchbox points. This stuff is amazing - it smells so good, I use it for a hair perfume when my hair is dry as well as being a leave in conditioner for when it is wet. It makes my hair feel so soft and it looks beautiful when it dries.
Keep Cup Brew - ($24) This lovely cup was in my PopSugar Must Have box for January and I love it. I do not drink hot coffee - but I drink hot cocoa and tea. I also use this for my favorite cold coffee drinks.
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream - (full size $38) Birchbox has been hitting it out of the park lately - I really think the longer you are with them, the better your boxes get. This eye cream is fantastic. I always notice a difference in the morning when I put it on at night.
Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream in Always There - ($22) Boxycharm had a great month in January and I love this lip gloss. It has a mirror and a light on it! This is so cool! I can put lip gloss anywhere and at anytime!
Acme Party Box Co Cutting Board and Knife - ($42) This cutting board came in my February box and I love it! I took it on our Valentine's Day romantic weekend. I love getting fun items that are useful for every day life.
Beauty Blender with Solid Cleanser - ($28.95) WOW! I was beyond excited when I opened my Birchbox in February and found a Beauty Blender. This is the highest valued item I have ever gotten in a Birchbox. I love that the cleanser can be used to clean my brushes as well.
Whitley Earrings - ($14.95) These earrings were in my Little Lace Box for February and I was thrilled - they are handcrafted and so elegant. I have a feeling this box will produce more of my favorites as time goes on.
Muk Luks Slipper Sox- In my January Wantable Intimates box, I finally got a pair of the slipper sox I have been wanting for months. These are so adorable and comfy!
So the majority of my best of the box items came from Birchbox! Popsugar was a close second. I am trying to cut back on boxes so that I can put that money toward boxes I will actually get items I will use. I have decided to keep Birchbox, PopSugar Must Have, and Little Lace Box. I am cancelling Boxycharm and Ipsy. I feel this will give me more items that I actually will use and not just take up space.
