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 Affilate because I can then earn points. I’m all about reward systems!

The products are (in no particular order):

  • Harvey Prince Ageless – Pink Grapefruit
  • My™ Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer
  • Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique – Protect
  • alessandro Cream Rich Handcreme
  • Lashem Double Trouble Mascara

I was pleased to finally get some decent sized deluxe samples in my Birchbox January 2013 box, however I really wish they would look at profiles because I don’t know where else to check off “dry skin” before I stop getting mattifying products.

The Alessandro handcreme is very thick and you don’t need a lot of it to moisturize your hands. The scent reminds me of cherry cough syrup. Weird I know, but it has that artificial cherry scent to it (which I don’t personally like).

It’s always nice getting a teeny tube of mascara to keep in your purse and this tube is indeed teeny! The Birchbox website says of this product, “The wand features one smudge-free Volumizing Black Mascara and one Lengthening Fiber Black Mascara.” however the sample obviously doesn’t have dual products so I’m unsure of which “end” I received.

I’m excited to try the Kérastase shampoo and conditioner because it’s meant for dry to very dry hair, which is what I have. I normally use Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner so it’ll be interesting to see the comparison!

The fragrance sample smells AMAZING. Normally I can’t stand fragrance samples but this? Citrus with a touch of floral… very Springtime!

For those of you who are also Birchbox members, what did you get in your box this month?

I love reading what other people get – my box was TOTALLY different (maybe it was #19? I can’t remember now, my friend Laura always posts a link to the list) and I’m very jealous of your hair stuff and your pink grapefruit scent.

I really am pleasantly surprised by the fragrance! Normally I get really teeny-bopper samples so to get something that doesn’t smell like fruit loops? AMAZING! In general I love citrus scents, it’s why Clinique Happy is my HG (holy grail!) perfume of all time LOL!

What did you get in your box?

I think our January Birchboxes were somewhat similar! I got the Kerastase and Lashem. Sadly January’s box was my last Birchbox, as I canceled it in favor of Ipsy.
