JULY 2016 FEATURED BIRCHBOX REVIEW

I have two Birchbox accounts. I have signed up on two different emails. I love Birchbox! It is one of the oldest subscription boxes out there. The boxes are so cute and they come with awesome brands. I have discovered many favorite brands through this service. Every month they allow you to pick one of your samples or opt for the guest editor/featured box. On one of my accounts, I opted for the featured box. This box usually ships faster as well. 

Cost: $10.00/month

Ships: To US, France, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom

FIRST IMPRESSION:

The box for July was okay. I couldn’t wait to dig in and see what all was inside!


REVIEW OF ITEMS:

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion 

This is a sample size. I have relatively large pores so I am excited to try this product.


Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil

Milk Makeup Sunshine Oil

This is sample size! It is a portable rollerball that brightens, deeply hydrates, and gives the skin a dewy glow. It has seven essential oils. I can’t wait to try it.


Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara

Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara

This is a sample size! I believe I have tried this mascara before but it was a long time ago. I don’t think I was a fan of it. However, I will try it again.


Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Soothing Cornflower

Living Proof No Frizz Styling Cream, Shampoo, & Conditioner

These are sample sizes. I really love Living Proof products so I am excited to try these.


 

OVERALL IMPRESSION:

This was definitely not my favorite box. The sample sizes were very small and a lot of packets were included. I am actually a bit disappointed in this featured box. I am sure most of you have heard that Birchbox is making some drastic changes. I am not thrilled about the changes. I may end up cancelling both of my subscriptions. I will stay subscribed through August and see what happens. They have changed their point system which is the main reason why I loved Birchbox so much (see image below). I hope they start including FULL SIZED products now to compensate. If they do, I will stay subscribed. What did you receive in your Birchbox? What do you think of this month’s featured box? Are you going to stay subscribed with the new changes? What do you think about them? Let me know in the comments below!
