I received my first Birchbox at the end of March and I was so excited to participate in “Birchbox Brag” with Tara. Except now it’s called Subscription Box Share and you can share ANY box you received!
My first Birchbox!
What I got:
Juice Beauty / Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream
Juicy Couture / Couture La La (perfume)
Serge Normant / Meta Revive Dry Shampoo
Whish / Shave Crave Shaving Cream
Madewell for Birchbox / Emery Board
What I thought:
First of all, I think birchbox takes the fact that I’m 30 a little too seriously. Just because I’m 30 does not mean I wanted a Stem Cellular repair cream! I’d much rather have the lipstick sample my friend Kim got, thank you very much!
The perfume smells pretty good, actually, although I don’t wear perfume often so I know I won’t be buying the full size of this one!
I haven’t tried the dry shampoo yet. I don’t really know how and when to use it? I guess you just spray it in when you hair is dirty and you don’t have time to shower?
The Shave Crave shaving cream…I was really excited about this one and then really disappointed. First of all, the smell is really overwhelming! Like blueberries times a million and so sweet it made me nauseous! The cream came out in a really thin layer, but it worked pretty well. However, it was clear-ish so I couldn’t tell my “lines” where I had shaved and not shaved so I think I will stick with regular shaving cream. Also, it left this waxy, weird feeling film on my legs after. I would not use this one again!
Overall, I was a little disappointed by my first Birchbox. I expected the samples to be cooler things that I would actually use and like, but they were not. I think I will give it a couple more months to see if I get anything I like better, but I hope they aren’t all like this!
