November Birchbox

Hi sweeties!

I have been a Birchbox member for 5 months now and I've been thinking about unsubscribing since their boxes were not living up to my expectations with their tiny samples and lack of make-up products. This month I feel like BB redeemed themselves since I finally received a full sized product from them and the sample sizes weren't ridiculously small this time around! If you haven't heard of birchbox check out their site here. It is a $10 monthly subscription. I wanted to share my November box since I love it so much!



Look at the full sized mascara! That is the product I'm most excited about and will give a review as soon as I try it! It is a fiber extension mascara to make it look like you have falsies on. I'm also excited about the Oscar Blandi texture and volume spray since I have limp and thin hair hopefully this will do the trick. It's also a very considerable sample size! I tried the Soy Joy bar recently and I actually love the taste. It's yummy and has cranberries, I'm planning to buy some at my local supermarket. The Smitten bath bomb is super adorable, it looks like a real cupcake! Too bad I do not have a bath tub so I will be gifting this to a friend. The perfume sample is Stella Cadente and I love the packaging, its much more useful than the regular perfume sample bottles. It smells really lovely but kind of strong, so I'll remember not to spray too much. The Caldrea hand soap is really useful as well, I will take this with me when I go traveling or keep in my purse in case there is no soap at public places! I heard this soap smells wonderful.


What I like about Birchbox is that they give you top notch quality samples and sometimes give you full sized make-up products that is more than what you paid for the monthly fee! The mascara they gave me retails for about $22 so I'm super happy about that.

Do you guys subscribe to Birchbox too? How do you like it?

Also please remember to check out my giveaway down below, I have added some new items for the winner!!

Xo,
Denise Anne

  2. These makeup boxes! Gorgeous! I've been hearing a lot of those from where I am too. I guess it's a must-try but I need to select which one gives the best and not to disappoint like how BB did to you. :)

    Good thing you finally have a good box this time dear!
    Happy weekend Denise! :)
