Birchbox – January 2013

birchbox january 2013

The first Birchbox of the new year is here!  But it’s not that impressive. :(  I’m just going to start by saying that I’m tired of getting Juicy Couture fragrances in these boxes.  I’ve gotten three in the last year.  Yes, they have been different Juicy Couture scents but I don’t like any of them.  If they’re gonna keep sending us fragrance samples at least mix it up more.

I don’t know why but the latest Birchboxes have just felt stale to me.  I find myself getting less and less excited to receive it each month which is a bad sign.  I’m thinking that maybe I need to just step away from Birchbox for a few months and see what happens.

Birchbox – December 2012

It’s time for another Birchbox!  I missed posting my November 2012 Birchbox since I was pretty much sick all of November.  Plus last month’s box was a major let down so I didn’t feel bad not posting it.  And let me just start off saying that this month isn’t that great either.

December’s Birchbox is better than last month but I think it could have been way better since it is the month of Christmas.  Nothing in the box really spoke holidays to me which was kind of a bummer.

Birchbox – October 2012

Birchbox - October 2012

It’s time for another Birchbox!!  This month Birchbox teamed up with and gave everyone the option to choose that box or stick with the regular Birchbox edition.  Since I never want to miss out on something fabulous, I chose to accept the Goop box this month.

Although my October 2012 box was really good, I wouldn’t call it fabulous.  Was it worth the $10 I paid?  Definitely!  But the majority of the products were from brands we’ve already had before so nothing was really exciting.  At least I got one full sized product in mine so I really cannot complain.

Birchbox September 2012

I received my September 2012 Birchbox last week and I’m pretty happy with the contents.  This month Birchbox is focusing on the beginning of the Fall season.  They put together a Fall lookbook for us with ten of their favorite fall beauty trends.  Included is a coupon code for Madewell for $25 off any purchase of $75 or more.
