Birchbox RECEIVED 8/8
So do you remember when I talked about Birchbox last month (here)? Well I said I was going to try it out and if it wasn't worth it then I would just cancel my subscription...well IT CAME! I'm very pleasantly surprised. See below!
Isn't that box so pink and girly?! Who doesn't want to receive a lovely gift in the mail when it arrives like that?
Look at all of those goodies! Sample galore. $10 did me justice on this Birchbox.
I ended up getting 4 samples + one free sample, not pictured. From the amounts tallied below the products I received are in excess of $25 in value! That's great for a $10 box of goodies! There are a few in there that will definitely benefit me as well so this was a good experience and I will keep it and see how next month goes. Here is what the card they sent me says about the samples I received...also note the prices of the full size product and my "adjusted totals":
1. June Jacobs | Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque; 3.7 fl oz | $62
Size received 0.5 fl oz (~$8.38)
*Powered by natural fruit extracts, this creamy mask dissolves dull cells, then boosts skin with essential oils and antioxidant-rich tea extracts.
2. Ouidad | Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel; 6 oz | $16
Size received 0.6 fl oz (~$1.60)
*A styling aid with brains! When this non-sticky gel senses heat, it stops hair from expanding. Welcome the frizz-free curls
**This will definitely benefit me and my frizzy hair! I hope that it actually works!
3. Shaveworks | The Cool Fix; 2 fl oz | $11 & 5.3 fl oz | $25
