I've been getting Birchboxes every month now and I am getting less and less enthused about it. The samples are fine but I'm not sure they're worth the amount of landfill they generate, and I could put that monthly $10 toward something better. I think this will be my second to last Birchbox.
It came with a little bottle of nail polish (unfortunately the same color as one they'd sent me previously).
A tiny sample of Juicy Couture "Couture La La" perfume.
It's a light, citrusy floral fragrance, and I wore it out to dinner with my boyfriend the other night. Our waitress loved it and complimented the way it smelled on me at least two or three times. I was delighted, naturally.
Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lipstick in "Starlet."
Beautiful color and it went on smoothly and stained well. I was sad that my sample had melted and gotten smudged a bit in the box, though.
suki exfoliating foaming cleanser.
It smells like lemon and it scrubs up nicely, but I could make my own.
And Tweezerman matchbox-sized "itty bitty" nail files.
I was annoyed by this addition - although the nail files might be handy, they're almost certainly one use apiece and meant to be thrown away. And that's my whole problem with Birchbox - it's just not sustainable.
