January 2016 Birchbox


Another week, another Tuesday!

Can you all believe how fast the month is flying by?

I’m back again with another beauty post, and this time, I wanted to share with you all my Birchbox subscription, which was gifted to me from Vicky of Vicky’s Scrapbook for my birthday 🙂 Thank you so much Vicky!

I’ve already received all of my boxes (a total of 3 gift boxes), but instead of bombarding you all with so many products all at once, I wanted to just share with you my very first box of personalized samples! (But in actuality, I’ve just been bad and haven’t gotten around to writing this post when I should’ve done it a long time ago. I mean, come on, January?! It’s March already… I’m sorry hehehe *scratches back of neck in embarrassment*).

I haven’t gotten to use any of these products just yet, but I’m definitely very excited to give them a try because they were picked for me based on my profile 🙂

First up is the Romance de Provence fragrance from Catherine Malandrino. With notes of pear and black current, as well as a blend of jasmine, rose, violet, and vanilla, the fragrance sounds like it’ll definitely be very bold!


Up next is a set of eyeshadow duos from Coastal Scents’ Style Eyes Eyeshadow Palette socialEyes line. Both colors are dark, and I know they’ll be great products to use if you’re going for a smokey eye 🙂 I’ve used Coastal Scents’ eyeshadow palettes in the past, and I’ve always loved them because the colors are so pretty and vivid, but they’re also super long lasting as well, which is definitely surprising since they’re so super affordable! I really can’t wait to use these darker eyeshadows for a night out! 🙂


Another product that I’m so excited to try is the Super Comb Prep & Protect from Number 4, which is a sulfate-free, botanical-rich leave-in conditioner. It boasts the ability to safeguard color, as well as strengthen and nourish hair. As my locks get longer and longer, I try to protect it as much as possible because the ends will surely be more susceptible to damage, so I’m definitely very excited to try this!


Aside from my love for hair protecting products, I’m also a big hand cream fanatic, so I was super excited to receive this Green Tea Shea Butter Hand Cream from Soap & Paper Factory. A girl can never have too many hand creams, right? 😉 I love how small this little tube is because it fits in my purse or clutch so well! Plus, the light green tea fragrance is so subtle yet fresh!


And finally, the product that’s got me wowing is this Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator from Vasanti Cosmetics! It boasts the ability to mimic the effects of microdermabrasion for smooth and glowing skin, so I’m definitely very excited about this product 🙂

What I love the most about these Birchbox subscriptions is how it lets customers try and learn more about beauty products before they commit themselves to buying a full-sized version. Plus, it’s always nice to receive a package through snail mail, especially in this day and age of digital everything, don’t you think? 😉


Have you ever heard of Birchbox? Do any of you have a Birchbox subscription as well, or are any of you subscribers of other similar lines of monthly subscriptions? Let me know in the comments! 🙂 I’d love to hear from all of you!

    • Aww I’m sorry to hear that Mell 😦 That’s how I feel about subscription boxes – sometimes, they can be wonderful, but sometimes, the things inside just aren’t what you’re expecting… Hopefully, next month’s will be better! 🙂
