January Birchbox

I promised I would blog about my January Birchbox, and it's now..yep...February.  Today I received an email confirming the shipment of my February box,  so I figured I better do it sooner rather than later...before I get further behind.  I'm pretty good at procrastination.

  For those of you that have never heard of Birchbox it is similar to a monthly magazine subscription.  Every month, for just $10.00, you will receive a box filled with 4-5 beauty samples from luxury brands. Each month will include a different mix of product types, including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care. All samples are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to figure out if they're right for you.  

My January box!!  I looove it!!

If you love the samples, you have the option to buy full size items on the website, with the opportunity to take advantage of free shipping, and a discount of that item for the month in which you received the box.

This is Juicy Couture's signature fragrance..a blend of sweet floral.  Very feminine, and is perfect for day or night.  I love this perfume, and my husband does too!!

VMV Hypoallergenics Eye anti-aging eye serum that brightens and revives your under eye area to conquer those dark circle once and for all. 

Zoya nail polish..the color is Kristen.  A beautiful bluish gray..I wasn't too crazy about it the first time I used it.  I think I put too many coats on, and it was a little too blue for me.  I tried it again with two light coats, and it was a pretty gray.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink.  It is a fuchsia shade.  I really like apply one coat for a sheer pigment, or layer it on for a brighter pink.   It's like two in one!  I also got an adorable little Birchbox magnet..

Larabar Mini all natural dried fruit and nut bar with wholesome ingredients. I tried it, and even shared it with my husband.  It wasn't our favorite, but it wasn't terrible.
If you are interested in getting your own box you can sign up to be put on the waiting list at  Two of my friends put their names on the waiting list about a month ago, and are now awaiting their first box.  It is a first come first serve type thing, and the virtual line seems to move fairly quickly.  Sign up, and tell me what's in your box!

I should get my February box just in time for Valentine's day!  I am super pumped, and crossing my fingers for some makeup, and/or hair products.  Stay tuned to find out what kind of new goodies are in the box.
