What's in my Birchbox?

Happy Tuesday Lovas!

I got my Birchbox over the weekend & just wanted to share with you all what was in it! In case you haven't heard of Birchbox, it is a really cool company that sends you samples of products that they think you will like based on a survey that you fill out. It costs $10 a month or $110 per year, so it is a wonderful deal & is something to look forward to!! You also earn points to discounted full size products.

If you aren't a member of Birchbox yet and you are interested, please leave me a comment with your email and I will send you a link! In the meantime, here is what I received this month:



First, the Ahava Mineral Foot Cream. It is a hydrating crea with avocado and jojoba oils made to soften and smooth. It has a great minty type of smell that I love!


Then I got these Minteas, Tea Forte mints that are infused with energizing yerba mate and cocca. They are a 'lime mojito' flavor and are made with organic green tea. I get something similar to these at Trader Joe's, and love them, so these were a score!


Love this lipgloss!! It is Kissable Couture that feels weightless and has a slick, glass-like finish with pigment, but not an overwhelming amount. Will probably buy a full-sized!!


This is the Erno Lasizo TranspHuse Night Serum and the colorscience pro Sunforgettable Mineral Powder SPF 30. I haven't tried either yet, mostly because I have a hard time straying from MAC, and I do have a night serum that I use, but I plan on trying them soon. The night serum smells great, but it probably is only 1-2 nights worth, so I don't know how I would be able to tell if I had good results, but we will see.




And that is it!! I definitely recommend Birchbox... I think it is a great and inexpensive way to get samples of new products or to find things that you wouldn't normally find!

Have a great rest of the day my dears!!

Blessings,
Kat

Holly said...

I have been on the fence about trying out Birchbox...I don't know how much I'd really use all the products in each box so I don't know if it would be worth my money, but this box looks great so maybe I'll try it out sometime!!

laura said...

I am gonna be trying out Birchbox soon! So many bloggers have been loving it!

Jules said...

Some months I really want to join when I see all of the wonderful goodies included and others, not so much. I guess they can't all be a hit. I do love the idea of getting something once a month and the discounts on full size products. The mineral powder and lipgloss look nice!

Turtles and Pearls said...

Every month I weigh whether to purchase a Birchbox or not...but I haven't so far. Yours this month looks amazing and really makes me want to join!

siddathornton said...

i'm still waiting on my birchbox to arrive for this month - & judging by yours, i can't wait! i have the ahava hand cream & love it, so i hope my box has the foot cream too (& the mineral powder) - yay!

Andi said...

Here in South Africa we have Rubybox and Glambox, I love beauty products so much that I belong to both. It is always fun to be able to try new things that you otherwise might have overlooked.

Rubiiee said...

The products look great!

I'm so hesitant to become a member, just partly because I hate clutter and wouldn't want to accumulate stuff I don't like/need.

Brittany said...

I am so glad you found my blog, I am glad we can be blogger friends now! :)

I am still waiting on my Birchbox. Maybe it will have good things in it like yours!

I got my Birchbox yesterday! I got the foot cream too, but everything else was different. I was unsure about signing up at first, but I've been loving getting my Birchbox every month!
