Happy Wing Wednesday everyone! I am so tempted to order myself some wings but I must restrain myself!
Anywho, it’s the time of the month to unbox and review my Birchbox! I peeked at my box earlier this month (no surprise there) and was pleased with what I was getting so let’s jump right into it!
For those who don’t know, Birchbox is a monthly beauty sampling subscription service that costs $10/month!
Birchbox is one of my favorite subscription services because I find myself actually using and loving everything (or almost everything) I receive! I’ve discovered many new brands from this sub!
Another reason I love Birchbox is their INCREDIBLE point system! For every item in your box you review, you receive 10 Birchbox points, which is equal to $1 in theBirchbox store. Plus, if you share your Birchbox on FB or Twitter you will get an additional 10 points! These points add up super fast since you can get $6 or more worth of store credit each month!
This month’s box was curated by Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere and coincidentally, her new book, Cupcake and Cashmere at Home, came out this month as well!
The back of the card lists the products sent with descriptions and prices. Now onto the products!
Marcelle Clay Mask – 0.55 oz | $2.23
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – 0.75 oz | $2.97
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer – 0.67 oz | $14.19
I’m always happy to see a mask in my Birchbox,
especially clay masks! This mask is full of natural ingredients that help clear and brighten skin. This couldn’t have come at a better time because I broke out super bad this past weekend.
I jumped up and down when I saw I was getting the Amika Dry Shampoo because I just tried out my first ever dry shampoo last week and don’t how I’ve been living without it all my life! I bought a travel size Batiste one from Ulta and I’m curious to see how this one compares.
I’ve gotten a Naobay lotion in the past and I loved it! I hope I like this moisturizer just as much, I found it interesting that it’s made with avocado and olive oils. One thing I was unsure of is if this product was supposed to be sealed. Mine was unsealed – if you got this moisturizer let me know if yours was unsealed and full of air – I’m curious to know if it’s all of us or just me!
Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional – 0.10 oz | $2.32
W3LL PEOPLE The Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara – ??
I honestly did not expect to get any Benefit products in my Birchbox!
I haven’t used the POREfessional before so I am really excited to try it out since I’ve heard nothing but great things!
I don’t use mascara often so I may send this off to a friend. This one is all natural, pro-grade, and lifts and lengthens lashes without any chemicals or dyes! I think that’s pretty neat so on second thought..I’ll probably keep this for myself! I’m not sure what the sample size is but the full size retails for $23.50.
The total value of this month’s box is $21.71 and this is without the value of the mascara! I’m very happy with all of the products Birchbox sent me this month, I’m for sure going to use everything and I’m most excited about the clay mask, dry shampoo, and POREfessional!
