Birchbox is one of the first boxes I joined when I found out about subscription boxes. I have been with them over a year and they keep getting better and better. In the beginning days when I did not get the items I liked, I stayed because of the points system. Birchbox has an amazing online store that you earn points in by reviewing, sharing, and purchasing items.
This month's box arrived later than I expected. But I was happy to see that box in the mail.
The box this month was beautiful - they have been on a design roll with the boxes this year. All of them have been so pretty. I do wish I also had the monthly box. I chose a Mad Men curated box - New York - this month. It is different from the Birchbox monthly box.
Liz Earle Eyebright Soothe Eye Lotion - ($8.33) This is the reason I chose this box. I have seen this on the Birchbox site and wanted to try it out. It is supposed to brighten tired eyes.
Whish Shave Cream (Blueberry) - ($2.90) This is a Birchbox staple item - you will get a shave cream and a lotion from Whish while you are a member of Birchbox. I really like this cream though. I do not mind non-lathering lotions; my Perfectly Posh shave cream does not foam up either and it is perfect.
Beauty Protector - Protect & Oil - ($2) This is another Birchbox staple - I have gotten at least 2 of these products in my Birchboxes. This is for your hair to curb those fly aways and frizzies.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel - ($6.68) Truthfully, I would rather this have been a lip gloss from this company. This has rich botanical conditioners and is for smoothing those brow hairs. I am trying to convince my husband to try this since his eyebrows are quite unruly.
Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos - ($7.50) I was also thrilled this came in the New York box because it is so pretty. It is waterproof and I love the packaging.
I thought this was a terrific curated box - a great variety of products and ones I have not sampled before.
The Birchbox Bonus items have really been awesome these last few months. This month I chose Rifle Paper Company cold drink tumbler and notebook. The print on the tumbler is the same as the regular Birchbox this month. The set was $20 and they shipped it with my Birchbox.
