This is going to be the last Birchbox roundup that I plan to do, mainly because its just not worth getting them anymore, a lot of the items are a bit samey and one of the items in this months box just isn’t at all impressive.
I have enjoyed getting it month by month but I decided to cancel my subscription after July’s box, doesn’t mean you wont enjoy what they have, it just wasn’t for me anymore.
Up first I have this tiny sample bottle of what I assume is perfume, It actually smells really nice, I am a fan of Thierry Mugler’s Angel and this is a little bit lighter than that, its Romance De Provence by Catherine Malandrino and its pretty expensive in the full bottle (the website shows the U.S price but the UK price is 53, I don’t think I would buy it, but I will for sure use this little sample up.
When I first opened my box I thought this was a little packet of tea, it is tea.. but not your English breakfast kind of tea, its a face mask by Origins , Its a powder face mask with Matcha and Green Tea and it smells exactly like green tea, I am not sure what Matcha is but it does smell really nice and I am looking forward to trying it out.
Next is something a little fun, foaming shower gel, and it foams up amazingly, I pressed the button and without expecting it, a large amount of gel fell onto the floor and foamed up everywhere. It smells amazing and when I did get some on my skin is now all smooth, it has a slight minty aroma but its main ingredients are eucalyptus and rosemary, so amazing!
Up next is Flash Cleanse Micellar Water, all of these products smell so wonderful, and this one is no different, I used a little bit on my face after I had removed my makeup last night and my skin felt great this morning, didn’t have any reactions like i normally do with skin care products, defiantly adding this to my makeup routine.
I believe this is dry shampoo, I am only used to the shampoo you get in the spray bottles, so a almost, cream dry shampoo is a little strange to me, over the week ive read so many comments on Birchbox’s facebook page about getting nothing but dry shampoo and I couldn’t help but laugh at this, its an overnight recovery dry shampoo and it kind of made my hair a little bit greasy, but my hair can be a tough cookie with products.. I think I will stick to my spray shampoo for now.
Now this last one, has made my mind up on whether or not I was going to continue getting Birchbox in the near future, yes this is as small as it looks, its a Benefit Cosmetics lip and cheek stain and it is a beautiful color, but the bottle is tiny, I know it was just a sample but I was expecting something a bit bigger than what I received.
it is a lovely color as I said and I had the choice of two to pick, and as I am not much of a red lippy fan I went with the more pinker tone.
But that’s it, No more birchbox for me, I don’t mind, I plan on keeping my Glossybox Subscription so I will continue to share what I get from that in the future.
Have you ever used Birchbox before? what did you think about it, are your feelings about the same as mine?
Until next time
