Just when I thought I was gonna give up on Birchbox they come through with a good month’s box. I was much more excited about this box than I have been in the past few month’s boxes.
There was one negative though…almost everyone else’s November Birchbox had a Zoya nail polish in it. I know I’ve said this before but I think they are doing a disservice to their brand by the inconsistency. I know how frustrated I get when I don’t get what almost everyone else got and I can imagine that I’m not the only person. And it’s happened to me several times already in the 7 months I’ve been subscribed.
It’s just something I think they need to seriously look at. If I’m frustrated and considering cancellation, how many other customers are thinking the same as me? Oh, and I even tweeted about it to @Birchbox with no response which is kinda crappy too. Maybe it’s just me being picky but I wish all the boxes where the same for everyone every month.
Without any further blabber, let’s get on to what I got.
Anastasia HydraFull Lip Gloss – This adorable little lip gloss sample came in the color Sugar Pink. The color is a very pretty light pink on my lips, it gives great shine but does have a bit of stickiness to it.
Thymes Eucalyptus Body Lotion – Smells very nice. It’s not a strong dried eucalyptus fragrance, it has a more soapy clean scent. Feels really nice on my skin, not greasy at all. Plus a small packet of Kimono Rose body lotion.
Shalimar Fragrance by Guerlain – This is a pretty strong floral fragrance which I normally don’t like but I find this still wearable. Maybe I’m ok with it because I pick up hints of a baby powder type scent.
Kerastase Elixer Ultime – A conditioning hair oil. I can always use good frizz fighting hair products so I’m looking forward to trying this out.
Bonus: Two Paper Dolls Coasters – Two letterpressed paper coasters like you find on some restaurant tables and bars. Cute print, we’ll use them!
