Birchbox: My new FAVORITE thing!

This month I decided to try something I had heard about through my best friend, Sophie. It's called Birchbox. It's a subscription that provides you with monthly deliveries of high-end beauty and lifestyle samples from top brands. It's a great way to discover new products and buy with confidence, knowing how they work! I ordered mine last week, after being on the waiting list for two weeks (it's pretty popular!) This is what I just got in the mail: 

So after opening the main package I was greeted with another small box that was super cute too!

It had some neat things in it, including this fold out little flyer with some awesome tear-off cards! I'm a typeface geek, so I absolutely love it.

so cute, right??
These are the things I received: 

  • Reviver the world's first dry deodorant for clothes:

  • Fekkai Brilliant Glossing-Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioner duo (2 oz. each)

Not so sure how I feel about Fekkai products. Yes they are expensive and nice, but the ingredients can be damaging to my hair type. I'm reading the ingredients and I'm seeing lots and lots of alcohol which=bad news for my hair. So I can't suggest this one. Sorry, Fekkai!! I will let you know how it works after I try it out. 

I don't normally wear dark colored polish, so I'm not sure if I'm going to like this one..but I will try it all the same. :) Plus I think the concept is neat so my vote is YES on this one!

looks like there will be holes for distributing the powder. 

I like the fact that it is a mineral eye shadow. I don't normally wear eye shadow (call me lazy, whatever!) But when I do, it is always in this shade, so this is perfect!! I like that it is powder as well. I tend to have an issue with eye shadow breaking, so this solves that problem! :)

Birchbox is great because when you first sign up, they give you a series of questions to ask that will help determine what kind of products they should send you. For example, they asked for my skin type, hair type, things that I'm interested in, etc. I think the concept behind the company is genius! You get your samples, and then you can purchase them (at a discounted price) on the Birchbox website, if you want! If you decide to give it a try, it is $10 a month which is a great deal! You can sign up here, by clicking on this link!! 

Well, that's all for now! I'm off to enjoy my goodies!
