First, this is not a pregnancy post. (I may have a slight flare for the dramatics.) But I seriously have been looking forward to receiving my first Birchbox ever since I signed up. I think this is as close as I will get to a celebrity swag bag. Only I am pretty sure they don’t pay for theirs…
Birchbox is basically a subscription service where you pay $10 a month and you are sent a box of beauty samples. Each box has a theme (this one was beauty innovations) and includes several samples and one full size product.
Today it came:
A box within a box:
All of the goods!
My full size sample was this blinc mascara which retails for $24. I only paid $10, so clearly this is a great deal, right?
I love a present within a present – more anticipation!
Included in the mini present was this Lift Lab Fast Fix. This is a serum you put on to help red/sensitive skin. The description is very la-ti-da and uses big words like Cell Protection Protein and Arctic-derived ingredients. It also retails for $85. It must be good, right?
My last “gift” was this Kate Spade Twirl perfume. So far this is the only product I have used since ripping the box open 5 minutes ago. I actually rarely wear perfume, but really like this fragrance. It is light, sort of sweet, floral and fresh. The closest perfume I could relate this to would be Clinique’s Happy. Though, obviously, it is different.
When I signed up for Birchbox online, I took a little survey about my hair and skin, so I think the boxes are each different based on your profile.
Also, you don’t have to blog or blog about the box to sign up. I am just really excited about it! :)
I will post reviews on these products soon. I am excited to get ready for bed and wake up tomorrow. (Clearly my life is VERY exciting.)
