January Birchbox

This month I got my first BirchBox!!! How excited am I?! Very!

Do you not know what Birchbox is?
It's like a subscription to a magazine, except you get a box full of amazing, high end beauty products every month!!

This month's theme was Best Year Ever.

The first thing opened was Number 4 clarifying shampoo. This is something I have been needing for some time. I usually don't like to use clarifying shampoo often because it strips the nutrients my hair needs, but the Number 4 is gentle enough for everyday use and has a low-suds formula that removes buildup without stripping my hair of its essentials oils. And my hair smells ah-mazing too. 

 I opened Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy perfume. Its fragrance is a mixture between wild berries with mandarin and a floral scent.

Next was 100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream.
It smelled amazing and made my dried out skin feel silky smooth and moist. I love the fact that its 100% natural and vegan. :)

My favorite item came next. The ModelCo SHINE ultra lip gloss. This Australian brand gloss has just a hint of color that makes my lips shine. I love the built in mirror too for easy on the go application. 

Lastly, I pulled out the Caudalie Vinexpert Radiance Day Cream with SPF 15. I live in the South where the sun is always shinning and I need a good moisturizer with SPF. It has a patented grape-derived compound to reverse skin damage. Umm, yes please!

I am officially in love with Birchbox! Check them out to get your own :)

  1. I've been debating trying out the Birch Box. It looks almost too good to be true!

    1. Lisa, I loved it! It was smaller than I thought, but I seriously have enjoyed everything in it - the shampoo I am going to order in a bigger version because its incredible. I love the lipgloss too - its not sticky and smells amazing - and adds just a hint of color on top of my lipstick. I say go for it - it was so fun to get in the mail.

  2. This looks so fun! This is the first I heard of it, what I great idea.

  3. Color me intrigued since they have a Men's section. I'll give it a try. Be nice to try a few things out and get a surprise in the mail every so often. It said something about referral bonuses, so I'll throw one your way if it gives me the option.

    1. Haha! Thanks Chip - let me know if you do it! Im curious what you will get:)

  4. Oh my gosh, that looks like a great box! I've gotten that lip gloss too and it's the best!

  5. Oh that looks like such a fun box!! Adam and I have just a few payments left on some student loans and once we are done paying them off I am singing up! I figure I'll have extra money to spend then :)

  6. That was a good box :) I LOVE that lip gloss! I got it a few months ago and will order more when I run out - smartest thing ever to put a mirror on the side!

  7. It looks like it was a good box :) It's such a pity Beauty Boxes are not available where I live :(
