Hi everyone! This is my first post which I thought a good first topic would be my new subscription to a site called "Birchbox." I recently had heard about it while searching online and decided to check it out. I went to the website which I learned that for $10 a month Birchbox sends me a box filled with beauty samples and sometimes even full sized products! I immediately was interested and signed up! I filled out the basic information and also a "Beauty Profile" which is a profile specifically based on your features to better pick samples for you. They ask hair & eye color, skin tone, makeup preferences, etc. When I finished filling out my username information I was the told that I was now added to their "Waiting List,"(which I found sort of reassuring because it means this site must be popular and liked!) I waited probably 4-5 days which is when I received and email from Birchbox saying that my subscription was accepted and to visit their site to pay the monthly fee. I was soo excited!! I paid immediately and the next day received an email saying my order was shipped. I waited patiently over the next few days(which happened to be a weekend so post offices were closed) and had my package delivered within 3 days! It came in a cute pink box with their logo on it, and inside was an even cuter standard brown box which was made nice and had a cover. The packaging was ADORABLE they had pink tissue paper neatly folded around the samples and I unwrapped it to find 4 deluxe samples, a full sized product, a card from birchbox and subscription card for women`s health magazine to sign up for. The card from Birchbox stated the list of what was included in the box and also stated that they had teamed up with Women`s Health to pick the items for this months box & that the items were all picked because they can make a difference in some way! They even made a special hashtag tinytweaks to describe the idea of this months box.
Included in April Birchbox:
-Number 4: Non Aerosol Hair Spray
-Ruby Wing: Color Changing Nail Polish in Peony
-Sugergoop: Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream
-Whish: Shave Crave Shaving Cream
Full Size Bonus:
-Simple: Revitalizing Eye Roll On
So from that list immediately I was excited to try the Ruby Wing Nail Polish & Simple Eye Roll On! I painted my nails and the color was very pretty its a light coral color that in the sun changes to a darker coral color! The only thing I didn`t like about this nail polish was the way that the brush was. The brush was streaky and had to small of a bristle head which I had to stroke polish on a ton of times to do just one nail. I only had time to do one coat, which honestly I reccommend taking the time to do two! My nails looked ok but not what I was hoping they would look like after the first coat. I will be doing the second coat tonight and hope it will make this nail polish what I hoped for.
I next tried the Simple Eye Roller before doing my makeup the next morning! I LOVE it! It gives a cooling feeling under my eyes and is intended to reduce swelling and give you a little jolt from the cooling sensation to give you an awaken look! Birchbox recommended to try putting the eye roller in the fridge overnight and using it right out of the fridge in the morning for an extra cooling sensation which I am tempted to try! This product I will 100% buy when it runs out and has now been made part of my regular morning makeup routine!
The remaining products I still am testing, the shaving cream will probably be next or possibly the hairspray! I will update asap!
Please anyone share your thoughts on your products included in your Birchbox this month! I would love to have a discussion about it! I also joined Ipsy Glam Bag at the same time as Birchbox and received confirmation I was off the waiting list and my order shipped the day after Birchbox! So I am currently waiting on my Ipsy Glam Bag to arrive which I will also review!
