Yay! This is my first BirchBox post and also my first giveaway from my new mini-giveaway series! Here is the box that I got for December. Let’s check it out!
One thing that I noticed about BirchBox is that they really have the packaging down. All I did was slice open the tape on the packaging and BOMB! It popped open and there it was, my december BirchBox package.
To get to my box, I had to slide off another wrapping…
Woohoo! And now we are finally at the box. What a journey. This is their box design for December, it’s kinda Christmasy isn’t it?
After I tugged off the lid, I found a welcome note (since this was my first box ever).
Under my welcome note was some tissue paper. I opened up the tissue paper and there were all of my goodies! Now lets have a closer look at what came inside of the box.
ModelCo SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss $16.00 – This has almost a perfect 5 stars and 908 reviews on BirchBox. It also comes with a little mirror on the side of it, good for putting on lip gloss on the go. I heard that this lip gloss has the perfect amount of color, shine, and isn’t sticky. I haven’t used it or tried it, but I think it’s my favorite item out of everything in the box. But guess what, I’m giving this away to you guys! Enjoy~ lol, I’m a little sad to give it away, but I think it would make someone else I lot happier anyways.
Tili bag small $8.49 – A colorful plastic bag to put your makeup or toiletries in for when you travel.
RentTheRunway.com Gift Card $50 – You get $50 in credit to rent clothes from this website. Basically you can borrow jewelry, designer dresses, and more for a fraction of the retail value. So if you have a special event where you want to wear a stunning $500 dress, you can rent it instead from this website. They even give you everything you need to mail back the stuff you rented. No need to wash or dry clean either, they do it all for you.
12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment $19.00 – This product looks pretty promising. I am always looking for good hair products since I do a lot of damage to my hair all the time. 12 Benefits’ hair treatment is a leave-in conditioning mist that delivers a bunch of benefits to dry hair, giving it more vibrant colors and also by preventing further damage.
My last couple of items came wrapped up in another package. Hehe, I love opening up packages. Inside I found…
Harvey Prince Yogini Perfume Sample – Has a sophisticated scent that is meant to help you relax. The blend supposedly elevates your mood and has oils that counteract stress. “It’s the fragrance equivalent of yoga class.”
Twistband Hair Tie $1.50 – This is the only thing in the entire box that I have used so far. It claims to prevent creasing in the hair when you tie up a ponytail… LIES! My hair still gets a little indented. It is better than a normal hair tie, but I just can’t seem to justify the price of it. And they say it looks stylish on your wrist, I disagree. I feel like I can make this myself. Oh but it is a nice change to the traditional elastic hair ties and does look nice in your hair.
Overall, BirchBox isn’t exactly all that I was expecting. But I guess for only $10/month, it is worth it. I just don’t see the point of throwing $10 out every month for stuff that you most likely don’t need. In my case, this is good since I have a blog, but otherwise, unless you have the money to spare, I would suggest saving it.
