Impressions: This month's Birchbox is the best of the 5 boxes I have received from them. The samples seem a little larger than what I normally get, there was no Harvey Prince perfume sample, and I can actually use 3 of the 5 samples that I received! The Macadamia hair oil smells great and a little goes a long way so this 1 oz bottle should last a good while. The Naobay moisturizing cream goes on the skin silky smooth, absorbs quickly, and moisturized my dry skin pretty well. I applied a small amount on the back of my hand and after a few minutes my skin did feel a little softer in that area than the rest of my hand. I'm really looking forward to trying the mud mask because I read some reviews that stated it was good at deep cleaning pores. It is also recommended to apply the mask with a brush to get more even coverage. I do not wear makeup so the mascara and beauty balm will be traded or given away. Overall, I thought this was a relatively good Birchbox. The is the first time I've been excited to try more than one sample in my Birchbox. The value of the 3 samples I will use more than make up for the cost of the box so I am quite happy about that!
I have been subscribed to Birchbox for a few months and haven't gotten much use out of the samples I receive because my current beauty needs center more around natural skincare products rather than makeup, hair, and perfume. Although this month's box is the best one I've received, it will be my last. I'm cancelling my subscription after I use up the last of my reward points. If you are predominantly interested in makeup, hair, and perfume samples, Birchbox is a one of the more inexpensive, beauty boxes to try. The brands featured are more high-end than common drugstore brands so it's nice to get to try a sample before committing to purchasing the pricey full-size products. The rewards point program is by far the best I've seen. And the boxes are cute and come in handy for sorting and storing you samples!
