February Birchbox

Thursday, February 27, 2014

It's time for another Birchbox review. This might be my last Birchbox, sadly. Or not so sadly.

The past few months I have not really been loving my boxes no matter how I update my profile. And then when looking at what other people received in theirs, it hasn't been adding up to my monthly cost. Even the Christmas one that Birchbox boasted about was not all that glitzy or glam to me.

This month Birchbox teamed up with US Weekly to prepare an Oscar worthy Birchbox.

Bain de Terre Passion Flower Color Preserving Shampoo | Full Size $12

Bain de Terre Passion Flower Color Preserving Conditioner | Full Size $13.50

Giving a collective review, they smelled great. Seemed to do what they were supposed to as far as shampoo and conditioner go. But I can never tell if it preserves my color after only using it for 3 washes.

Also, another note on the Birchbox..I received another Bain de Terre sample in November. Talk about a repeat.

Juara Candlenut Body Creme | Full Size $35

This lotion was gret and had a pleasant smell. Left my skin feeling soft and nice pampering for my skin. Might be a little pricey though for my current budget.

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara | Full Size $18

This was the best thing about my box this month. Glided on smooth and really lasted. There were no flakes to irritate my contacts and definitely provided a little extra volume. And the company must be high end if they are located in the Louis Vuitton building. Just sayin.

Harvey Prince Hello | Full Size $55

I did not personally care for this fragrance. A little too intense for my preference. But love that it has plumeria in it. 

So for my overall take on this box and Birchbox: I think it's time to move on and say goodbye. I am looking at my money sitting in a box of things I can go eh about it. With all the profile adjusting I thought it would help but it hasn't improved. As I keep watching other people's boxes really work for them, I become more frustrated.

These shampoo/conditioners are nice and high end but I would never gamble paying for them when I can't really tell how well they work in a tiny bottle.

And holy perfume samples. I clicked, I clicked, adjusted things but I keep getting them. And I'm very simple with my scents. Not fancy shmancy. 

The parts I have loved? The nail polishes and makeup. Anyone that can give me a beauty box that would deliver these to me? I'm all ears!

    I think I'm going to cancel my subscription when it's up in April. It'll have been two years...and though I've found some nice things, most are waaaay out of my price range. Maybe I'll try Ipsy?
