Subscription Review: Birchbox

I was really excited for my Birchbox box to get here this month, and it seemed like it took forever! (The tracking said it was in Indianapolis for, like, a week.) It seems like it was delayed for pretty much everybody, though, so no more complaining :)

This month Birchbox partnered up with US Weekly and the outer box was so fun.

Here's what I got in my box (box #49) this month:

Benefit Big Easy

This was just okay. It is supposed to be one of those color-correcting foundations. It was really lightweight (usually a good thing) but I felt like it didn't really cover up any redness or smooth anything out. I think the sample wasn't big enough to be able to get the coverage it would have taken. On the plus side, the color picked for me (medium) matched up really well with what my skin tone is this winter.

OPI Sheer Tints Color-Tinted Top Coat

I love the mini bottles of OPI; for some reason they seem to dry faster than big bottles of nail polish? (Maybe it's just easier to use less with a smaller brush.) I liked this top coat and enjoyed the little hint of pink it put on my nails (I used it with no polish underneath).

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner

My pores aren't too bad to begin with and I could see a difference in my pores after I applied this, but at $45 for 1 oz, there is no way I would ever buy this for myself. The sample size is awesome though, and I will gladly use it on special occasions!

Agave Healing Oil Treatment

I have tried a whole bunch of de-frizz things for my hair over the years since it's always so frizzy. This smelled nice and my hair feels soft, but I still have lots of frizzies.

Benefit Fake Up

I've been using this for the past week to try to cover up tired circles under my eyes. It doesn't get cakey but I can't tell if it's doing a good job at covering up any darkness (I think I've mentioned before how I don't actually know how to put makeup on? Yeah.)

Birchbox has a fun points system where you can review the samples you get to receive 10 points each, and for each 100 points you have, it counts as $10 in their store. It's a pretty good deal (if you really like something, you can save up and get it for free!). If you are interested in signing up for Birchbox, click here, which is my referral link. It's $10/month or $110/year (like getting a month for free), and so far I've found that a) I love getting something in the mail each month and b) I use all my samples, either because it's something I need (like lotion) or something I want to try out (the various makeups/skin products).
