My first birchbox

I received my fist birchbox last week.  I was sick so I haven't been able to post about it.  It actually worked out great since I have been using the products in my box and can give an even better review!!!
If you don't know, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box.  It comes with a variety of samples (some full size!!!) products to try each month.  Since this is my first box, I can't really comment on whether this is a good box from last month or not but I will say, I am enjoying it a lot!!!
If you would like to sign up to receive the monthly box, click the link:  BIRCHBOX .
They do have a waiting list but I signed up and got accepted within a week!

This is how the box comes in the mail. I like the bright pink color!

You open the mailing package to your actual monthly box.  I love this since I can very easily repurpose this box!  I will cover up the front with a little designer series paper and have a cute box!!!

Apparently each box has a card enclosed inside.  This is the front of the card.

The back of the card actually tells you the products and how much a full size version of the product will run you if you want to buy the full size.  I will say that I have already found a full size version that I am buying!!!  LOVING this product!!!

This is how the inside looks.  I love the kraft envelope- I will be reusing it as well!!!  I did not take a picture of the nail file but you see it in this picture.  Already in my purse!!!  The front side of it is a nice pretty pattern.

Nice spray sample of Couture LaLa perfume.  I haven't worn this one yet but it smells pretty good.  The Benefit "sample" turned out to just be a card explaining the product.  Okay...odd to me.  I thought they would have put a little bit of the product in there- unless I missed it- it was just information.

This is a nice sample size of the Skin & Co Sicilian Body Gel.  It smells nice.  I have used it once so far. As far as body washes go, this one is just okay.  I am not going to give up my soap bar like the sheet said!!  It does have kinda a soapy lather so I am going to try it as bath gel.  I might like it better just to add fragrance to the tub.

This is the BB Golden Glow Creme.  I have to say, I am LOVING this cream!!!  It does so much! You can see that the product carton lists 9 things that it does.  I don't find it overly moisturizing- I use a moisturizer underneath.  But it is great to balance and conceal.  Helps throughout the day with shine.  I don't wear base since I find it to thick/heavy.  This is not heavy at all and a little goes a long way.  I have been wearing this product and pressed powder.  It does not cake at all.  Now I want to try this product out in 90 degree heat in the south and see how it helps with THAT shine!!!!  I am considering buying a full size product of this! 

Now to my favorite product of the box!!!! I am IN LOVE with the Vasanti Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator!!!  Since the directions said to use on a wet face, I stuck it in my shower.  I really didn't think I was going to be impressed with this one.  I WAS WRONG!!!!  I love a good facial scrub- this has a great texture.  It does have some exfoliating properties but it is not harsh at all!!  I love that it is a little gritty to scrub but is soft on the skin as well.  That is really the best way I can describe it.  My skin feels great after I have used it!   I have used this everyday since I got it!!!!  A++++ in my book!!!!
Overall, the first month's box was a hit for me!  Can't wait to see what next month brings!!!

  1. Yeah!!! So glad you love your first box and this one looks awesome. :)

  2. I still have a good amount of the Vasanti face brightening cleanser left after using it a couple times a week. Isn't it awesome?!! I can't wait for the April Birchbox :D
