Birchbox; Is it Worth the Money?

There are so many beauty boxes around now, that it can be hard to choose which one to go for. Or even if getting one is worth the money. So I thought I would give you my thoughts on Birchbox to give a bit more of an insight.

So I decided to get my first box on a bit of a whim. I fancied a treat and this seemed like a good one to me. I didn’t sign up to a yearly contract or anything so if I get bored with it I am not trapped or anything. However, from the start, I have actually really enjoyed the experience. When I signed up I got a choice of what colour I wanted my box that month to be. I chose pink. I love this box I now use it to store all my primers in. My next box wasn’t quite so amazing. So birch box please bring out more boxes with drawers like the Papier one!

As for the products that you get inside, they are a bit hit and miss. Some, I would totally rave about. Like the Beaver leave in conditioner, which is so amazing. Then there are some products which are really quite uninspiring. Like the ‘Pop’ eyeshadow palette. Which I think was a good thing to include in the box. But for me, they were very average and just not something that I would get excited about. However, the Nuxe oil is something that I had been wanting to try for ages so I was super excited to receive it in the box. My favourite thing from my two boxes so far is my trio of Bobbi Brown face masks. I had been wanting to try these for so long and as you know I am a massive Bobbi Brown fan. So when I saw the trio I was very happy. Also, this was such a good way for me to try the masks without having to buy all three to test them out. Having all three has allowed me to find a favourite and now I will probably only buy one not them all. So I would like to think that this box has actually saved me money?!

BirchBox also have a really good system where you can easily buy the products from your box on their website. Also, if you review the products that you receive in your box then you get money off the next order you make from the store. I think that this is a really nice feature as it would be really annoying to have to click around to find the product that you have just tried and love and want just right now!

Overall, do you need this beauty box in your life? Well no, but if you are anything like me and get a real kick out of receiving mail and like trying out new things then there really is nothing to lose.

Thank you for reading, sorry this post was up late but this has been a really manic week of deadlines at uni but we will be back on schedule from now on.
