{Birchbox}: A new monthly review!

I am so so excited that I’ve started receiving the Birchbox subscription! For those of you who do not know what Birchbox is, it’s a monthly membership where a team of beauty experts put together a box of different beauty samples and send them in a cute little package in the mail to you, every month! It’s only $10/month, and free shipping! Click here for more information…

My first Birchbox: October


The packaging was adorable! Doesn’t packaging make everything?


I love that they send a card with the descriptions of each product as well as the cost if you purchase the full-sized item.



Reviews so far-

Juicy Couture perfume: I really like this fragrance. It’s definitely not an everyday perfume for me, but I could definitely see myself wearing this when we were going out for the night! I actually love the little samples because they are easy to throw in a clutch or in your car for a little freshen-me-up!

Kerastase: I have not had a chance to use this product yet but hoping to do so this week!

Mox Botanicals Lip Balm: This lip balm is awesome! Super smooth and doesn’t have a funny taste! I’ve been using it every night before bed.

theBalm Cosmetics shimmer shadow: I haven’t used the shadow yet but I really like the color. Not too yellow or pink. I probably wouldn’t use it for an all-over shimmer like it describes, but definitely as an eye shadow.

Twistband: It is nice in your hair, it doesn’t pull hair out. But it’s a little bulky for me.

tili bag: This is one product  I have no use for. I don’t need a decorative ziploc bag, and I don’t keep my makeup in plastic bags. Kind of a waste.

So there you have it! Can’t wait for the months to come! A little treat for this busy mama 🙂

      I highly recommend it! And for $10/month you don't feel too guilty ;) I've heard that sometimes you even get full size product! So fun :)
