My sister and I recently subscribed to this wonderful little site called Birchbox.
Here's what it is:
You pay $10 per month and in return they send you an adorable box full of mid-size beauty samples, each month they send out ten different variations of boxes so everyone gets something a little different. So I've decided to make a post each month displaying the samples I got in that months box! Yes, I know it's January, but I didn't get back to school from Christmas break until Yesterday and my box arrived during break. So here goes!
My Box contained:
29 Cosmetics: 29 Preserves Skin Care Collection-
ModelCo: FIBRE LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara-
Nicole Richie Fragrances: Nicole by Nicole Richie-
Number 4: Clarifying Shampoo-
La Fresh: Eco-Beauty Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover-
$50 off on RENTTHERUNWAY.com
So far, I have only actually used the nail polish remover, as my morning was quite rushed today. But I have heard good reviews on the shampoo and the skin care collection (here- my sister got one in her box).
La Fresh: Nail Polish Remover:
Although I'm sure this is only because the nail polish remover was acetone-free and healthy and all that, plus I'm used to the heavy duty stuff- it didn't impress me. It almost felt dry right when I opened it and it didn't feel like it was working all that well. Although I must say that it smelled lovely (like oranges) and didn't leave a nasty chemical smell at all (probably because there was no acetone- duh- but still).
ModelCo: Lengthening Mascara:
While like I said above, I have not used this yet, I can't help but LOVE the little mirror on the side! So cute!
I know that wasn't the greatest review of my box but I'm looking forward to doing a bit more blogging and getting more boxes!
