May Birch Box - My very first one!!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

I was on the waiting list for Birch Box for over two weeks which probably doesn't sound like a lot, but to me... it felt like YEARS!  Finally i got the much awaited email inviting me to receive my monthly goodies and i couldn't be happier!  I quickly signed up and anxiously waited!  I received my very first Birch Box last week.   When it arrived, i could not open it fast enough!  I mean, this particular box was a Gossip Girl themed box and even though i no longer watch the show, i certainly love the characters' incredible sense of style so i was anxious to see what kinds of goodies were in store for meee! The outside of the box came with a Gossip Girl sleeve with a picture of the NY skyline.  I admired it briefly, then proceeded to slide the sleeve off and open the box.  My first impression was one of disappointment to be really honest.  I was kind of like, "where's the rest??"  In fact, i was thinking the samples would be a bit bigger.  However, after examining it further, i realized it was actually quite nice. I received the 'Chic Sunday Brunch' box.   I absolutely love the headband.  The color could not be more perfect!  The BB cream was also a nice addition, especially since I've been dying to try one!  This one is pretty good though I still want to try a few more brands before deciding which full size product to purchase.  The beauty blender/brush cleaner will certainly come in handy, that's for sure!  I love the 'xoxo' note card, it's so chic!  In addition, there was a Gossip Girl trivia card containing product information in the back.  I got a fun, gold nail polish as well.  I'll admit i have yet to use it, but will do so soon!  After all, you know i love me some nail polish!  Lastly, the perfume sample... hm where do i begin... it kinda smells like men's cologne.  It's a pleasant scent indeed but certainly not for a woman!  Let's not mention the ridiculous cost for a full size bottle at a whopping $165!  What???  So that was my first Birch Box!  Although it wasn't the best, it was still super cute and certainly fun to receive and open!  I look forward to next month's, and the month after that and so forth!  Have you checked out Birch Box?  If you currently subscribe, don't forget to leave feedback for each of the items you receive.  For each review, you'll get 10 points.  This means 50 points per box.  For every 100 points, you get $10 to use towards a Birch Box purchase!  Hullo???  Major score right?  So go ahead, write your reviews and enjoy the rewards!  XOXO

    1. It was a bit disappointing at first, just because it looked a bit empty. But when i looked deeper, i realized it was better then i intially thought. I really liked Test Tube too!
