At the end of last year I decided to give Glossybox another go but I wasn’t impressed so after Christmas I cancelled my subscription. I asked you which of the current service available you’d recommend/most like me to review and Birchbox was the out and out winner.. so I signed up. I was particularly interested in the Bauble Bar voucher code and as I was one of the first so many to sign up with a certain code I also received a cute bracelet as a bonus. Looking at the rest of the box objectively I wasn’t crazy excited about anything else I got, it was all a bit same ol’ same ol’ however I love the packaging and the little details such as info cards and gift tag templates were a cute touch. I’m not expecting the products to be all that different to those I received from GB but I get the impression that Birchbox cares a little more about what they’re putting together and although what I received wasn’t quite ‘up my street’ the products were all still very nice – not a perfume sample of plastic sachet in sight I might add.
*What’s In The Box*
Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow / BeeKind Body Lotion / Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain / Nail Rock Glitter / Twistband Skinny Hair Tie / Number 4 Jour d’Automne Non Aerosol Hair Spray
As I mentioned it was the bracelet from Baublebar was the winning item for me, unfortunately the voucher expired the day I received the box so I couldn’t use it but when I signed up I hadn’t expected to get a box until January anyway so I guess it would have been a bonus anyway.
I will be hanging on to this subscription for a couple of months before deciding whether to try another so as I said in my video (below) if you have any recommendations let me know!
