I’ve been a subscriber to Birchbox since February 2011. This month my subscription was up for renewal. I really struggled with whether I wanted to renew my subscription because this last year I was more disappointed than thrilled whenever I opened my monthly Birchbox. I decided to give Birchbox another year. I’ve changed some of my Profile settings in the hopes that I will receive more exciting product samples.
March 2014 – My first box of the new year. It didn’t start out very well. The shipping box wasn’t sealed, and the tissue in the inner box (the box that contains all the goodies) wasn’t neat and tidy (it was crumpled in the corner). These things might seem somewhat trivial, but the attention to detail that Birchbox used to present is part of what made me fall in love with Birchbox.
This month my Birchbox contained the following items:
Agave Healing Oil Treatment
Keims Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo
HAVVN Night Cream
theBalm cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples?
Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream
Despite the appearance of the outer and inner boxes, I’m pleased with this month’s samples. I haven’t tried the samples yet, but I’ll do that soon. Once I’ve had an opportunity to test out the samples, I’ll post my thoughts here. I’m wondering if anyone else subscribes to Birchbox, and what their feelings are about what they receive.
