I was pretty happy to get my Birchbox this month. I avoided all the clues and other reviews, I was looking forward to being surprised.
Color Club Nail Polish Baldwin Blues-I always love new color. Now this does not have any shimmer, but I’m not going to complain. The value of this polish is over half of what I spent on the box, so again, not complaining. Value $8.00
DDF Amplifying Elixir – I love DDF products. This is one of their items that I have not tried, mainly because of the cost. I don’t typically want to spend $70 on a moisturizer. Reason # 596 why I love Birchbox, you get to try things you normally wouldn’t purchase. Value $20.60
Joie Folle de Joie eau de parfum – In my profile I have noted to receive the least amount of perfume as possible. Since this is one of the first since I updated my profile, I cannot complain. I’m currently ill, so I can’t even tell how this smells. Value $1.70
theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen – A lip and cheek stain. I smeared this on the back of my hand when I opened the box and loved the hint of color it provided. Loving this. Value @$2.00
Tiossan Body Cream Now who doesn’t love a body cream this time of year? My skin stays dry during the cold months, so I am always welcome to keep another cream in my stash. Value $1.18
Ahmad Tea London – One of the things I grew up on was a cup of hot tea on cold winter nights. There is just nothing else that soothes my throat and helps me float peacefully to bedtime. Value $7.00
This box also came with a cute little Holiday catalog. It contains great ideas for the men in your life, host gifts and quite a few other items. I didn’t think I’d find it informative or helpful, but I found myself folding over a few page corners.
When I first looked at this box, I admit, I wasn’t all that happy. But after going through each item, I realized that I will use just about everything (perfume has been given to my 12-year-old daughter). Now that’s a big plus. I spent $10.00 on this box and received over $40.00 worth of items!!
