May 2011 - First Birchbox Opening!

I got a present in my mail box today.... My first Birchbox! For those of you who aren't familiar with Birchbox, it's $10 a month, and around the 10th of every month they send you a little box with deluxe samples. You have a profile on Birchbox.com, and you answer questions about your beauty preferences... That way, the samples you receive are actually tailored to things that you are actually interested in using!


This box is so cute! I will be keeping it to use for gifts! :)


A description of the items in my Birchbox.

What it looks like when you open the pretty hot pink tissue paper. There was so much care in how it was packaged! So far, I have used the Ahava lotion.... It's nice! I didn't like the smell of it in the bottle, but when I put it on it was much nicer. It has a very clean scent... It would be good for right out of the shower! The only thing I don't like about it is that it's a bit greasy. Not really bad, just a bit too much for hands. It would make a good before-bed-on-my-feet lotion. (Am I the only one that has to get up in the middle of the night and put lotion on my hands and feet? It freaks me out!)

I am very excited to use this... I love facial peels! If I like it, I may get the cleanser and moisturizer too... It smells awesome!

Volumizing shampoo, Tinted lipgloss (that plumps without being tingly!), and some Pomegranate soap that smells awesome! I was wafted with the smell of this tiny soap when I opened the box! I also used the lip gloss.... I LOVE lipgloss! This stuff is scent-less and taste-less, and I can actually feel that my lips are "plumper", though, like I said before, it's not gross and tingly like plumpers tend to be. It also goes on very smooth and isn't sticky! I'll definitely be keeping this in my purse! 

Over all, I have to say that I'm very pleased with my first Birchbox! In my opinion, this is well worth $10! (Also, I saw that some people got Stila eyeshadow in their's! Jealous!) I can't wait to get my next one... It's like a present every month!!
