My January 2012 BirchBox

This is my second installment of BirchBox. I signed up last month. In case you don't know, BirchBox is a monthly subscription that mails you 4-6 deluxe size or full size beauty samples for you to try out and review. Here's what I got this month:

My verdict: This is a good box! Certainly worth the $10. The eyeliner alone is a value to me. For one, it's full size, and second, I use this type of eyeliner and it cost's me nearly $10. Score!!! I was pumped to see the polish of course. I love perfume samples. These little ones are perfect purse size and are leak proof.  I don't care too much about the granola. I will enjoy trying the soap. I'm not sure what the obsession is with Pomegranate these days, but I'm game.

Do you think this month's box was worth $10? If so you may want to go check out Birchbox. It's just $10 a month and you get to try all these samples. There's no obligation, you quit when you want to. Simple as that. Who doesn't like gifts in the mail? I know my little heart skips a beat when I see a package poking from my mailbox. Here's a link to check them out:

On a side note, I received an email today from MyGlamBag saying that they had subscription spots open. They are another monthly sample service that is almost identical to Birchbox. I signed up right away. I figure I'll try them out and then decide which sample service I like better and cancel one. Or what the heck...if I can afford it, I"ll just keep both. This is a really fun service. 


  1. Great box! I hope I receive a Zoya polish!!!

  2. Looks like a great box to me! I love Zoya polish and soaps. Unfortunately I cancelled my Birchbox subscription last month, now I'm kind of wishing I didn't!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I'm still waiting for my box to arrive. I was curious as to what I'd be getting so this was a great preview for me.

  4. I got my box today too! I also got the eyeliner and am excited to try it out!

  5. i got my box today. just got the same zoya and juicy. it was ok for my first box. im going to give it another month. i signed up for myglam monday. so we will see.
    the larabar i got as a lifestyle extra was GROSS.

  6. Yeah, I liked it. I mean, for ten bucks I don't think you could ask for much more. I really loved that color of polish!!! Thanks for the comments guys!!!

  7. I decided to cancel my subscription last month because the boxes have been pretty bad, but I would have really liked this one! Of course they finally get a good one when I cancel lol. I would have liked the Zoya nail polish and the Stila eye liner.

  8. @Krystal isn't that how it always goes? :P I just subscribed to Glam Bag, so I'm going to pick one or the other after I try them both out. So I may cancel the subscription as well. But I do enjoy trying the stuff out.

  9. I got the same box! My juicy sample exploded during transit, though. :( I signed up for MyGlam and actually made it into this month's bag, so we will see!

    I did my unboxing and reviewing here: :)

    1. I'm sorry to hear about the explosion. You should call them and see what they'll do for you. I will definitely check out your blog. Thanks for commenting!
