First Birchbox Reveal

I’m pretty excited about my year of subscription boxes! So far I subscribe to three (Birchbox, Beauty Box 5, and Nerd Block) and I love them! What else to add to that list. . .
I think Birchbox is the one I’m most excited about for a bath and beauty box. I love that it is customizable from the get go so you start getting products relevant to your interests in your first box. Since I’m not a huge girly girl, I like that I can narrow down the variety I get to the makeup products I might actually like. I also like their rewards program – earning points toward the Birchbox shop. That way if I find a product I totally adore I can buy it through their shop with my point credit!

Here’s how the package came. I wasn’t expecting a neon pink box, but hey it’s a box full of girly items so I can’t say I’m too surprised!

Once opening it, I was happily surprised that there was this cute little box inside with all my goodies! (I have a weird obsession with small boxes. I have an entire craft shelf dedicated to small boxes I’m saving for. . . projects. Right. Projects.)

First the card (which was actually at the bottom but shhhhh…..). This is my other favorite Birchbox feature: the product card tells you not only what’s in your box, but HOW to use it as well. Granted that’s not always too important, but I know there are some beauty products that my tomboyish self would just stare at and wonder what the heck to do with.

These little sample shampoo and conditioners are great. They smell fantastic, and I like to switch up my shampoo and conditioner so I’m excited to give these a try!

Next was this Nail Rock polish which I am very happy with! I favor dark colors for my nails (and my wardrobe) and this midnight blue is great. Plus it came with a tub of nail glitter in case I want to glam up a nail or two – always fun.

Then there was this cute little package.

Inside was a product I’m curious to test out: the Reviver. It’s a reusable dry deodorant pad for your clothes! In terms of my use, I think this could come in really handy for camping trips – I know after a weekend of camping, my sweatshirt is certainly smelling a little ripe and I think it’ll be great to give it a little once over with this little guy and keep some freshness in our campsite!

Also tucked in that little box was a pot of Inika eyeshadow. It’s a great pewter color, with a nice shimmer to it. On the occasions when I rock a smoky eye I usually do a lighter one, and I think this will be a great addition to it.

At the very bottom of the box was this set of typography cards! I love these, and they came at a very convenient time! I’m in the middle of redoing my arts and crafts area, and adding lots of things to my inspiration wall. I definitely stuck a few of these up there!

I’m very happy with my first Birchbox. It had a great products for me and I was doubly happy that I liked the makeup and polish colors! I can’t wait to see what next month brings! If you’re interested in joining Birchbox, click here! Lots of wonderful girly goodies await!
