Birchbox April 2012
If you love getting to try new products out (especially cosmetic products) then I suggest jumping on the Birchbox bandwagon! I’ve been getting the boxes for a few months now ($10 a month) and have found a few products I really enjoy (and have become purse staples).
I thought I would just do a quick post on what I got for this month’s box and by all means if you’re interested go and sign up! I would love it if you did it via my affiliate link: Birchbox Affiliate because I can then earn points. I’m all about reward systems!
The products are (in no particular order):
- Zoya True Spring Collection nail polish – Farrah
- Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Petite Cologne Absolue
- Yes To Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes
- Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream
- The Leakey Collection Omega Rich Pure Marula Oil
Overall I am fairly pleased with the box this month except, yet again, MORE FRAGRANCE SAMPLES! I think this is one of the biggest failings with Birchbox (I see complaints about this very issue a lot) is that it feels like they “spam” the subscribers with fragrances! Maybe I’m just super picky.
I am super thrilled over the mini Zoya polish, not only do I LOVE my massive amounts of nail polish but I love Zoya as a brand in itself AND I actually don’t own a lot of nude shades so this is perfect!
I am also excited about the facial towelettes because I LOVE them for when I am just too exhausted to full on wash / exfoliate / serum / more serum / moisturize / eye cream before bed, before this arrived, I have three other brands scattered on my vanity.
Cons for me this month? For sure the fragrance sample, the Marula oil (I already have argan oil AND maracuja oil, I don’t need a third “miracle” oil!), and the firming night cream (I am intensely super picky about my face care routine).
Will I continue to be a subscriber? Yes! I think the boxes I’ve received this year have vastly improved to what I got last year and I am already excited about next month’s box.
For those of you who are also Birchbox members, what did you get in your box this month?
