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 – Yogini fragrance
- Jouer Lip Gloss – Custom Birchbox Pink
- L’Oreal Pro – Mythic Hair Oil
- Befine – Gentle Cleanser
- ShowStoppers Fashion Tape
- Eboost – Orange Natural Energy Booster
I have to admit, for not only the last box of the year and the “Holiday” box at that… I’m very disappointed. I love the lip gloss because I love the brand Jouer and the color pink (it applies quite sheer!) but that’s about it!
I am VERY picky about my fragrance and Yogini is dominated by sandalwood. The L’Oreal hair oil (I used barely three drops) left my hair feeling just… odd. Not greasy exactly but overly slick. I have no use for the cleanser so I gave that to my husband to try. I have ZERO need for the fashion tape, I won’t be wearing any tops where I need to tape my breasts (not to mention this is probably only going to work for the small-breasted). Aside from the lip gloss, the Eboost looks interesting because it reminds me of my husbands favorite energy boost mix, ZipFizz. I also gave that to him to try and see which is better, Eboost or ZipFizz.
So overall, this is a miss, however last month’s box was very nice, especially the Zoya nail polish mini so here’s hoping they really WOW all their subscribers in 2012!
If you have any questions about any of the products or anything really, let me know!
