I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!
So recently I have been doing a bit of research into getting a monthly beauty box subscription. After a few hours of intense research I decided to go with Birchbox as they seemed to have the makeup products as well as organic and hair products.
Birchbox cost £12.95 per month including postage and you get around 5 samples in each including 1 full size product. I received October and November box and then cancelled my subscription.
Here’s why, when you sign up you fill out a number of questions such as skin type, hair type, skin tone etc. When I received my October box I had mixed feeling about. I didn’t hate but I didn’t love it either! In the box I got a full size Lord &a Berry lip crayon, a mineral water mist, a cucumber face mask and a Moisturiser and also one of those brushes that nobody actually uses for your eyelashes.
Then came November, I know they had a promotion that if you signed up in November you got a full size mascara but I didn’t qualify because I was already entered. In this box I got 2 hair care products, a lip primer and a BB cream which was far too light for my skin tone and a face mask. This is when I cancelled my subscription.
To be honest I just wasn’t impressed with it. On their website they advertise big brands like Laura Mercier and Benefit but the only brand I knew that I received was 5ml 3 Concept Eyes lip primer. I kind of thought the box was mainly for finding new makeup products but I mostly just got hair care and Moisturiser. Even after filling out the questions I only use one product I received.
I’m not sure I would recommend this to anyone. But then if you are looking for a cheap way to try out some hair care and skincare products this would be helpful as you can cancel the subscription at anytime.
Sorry for he long winded post guys 😂
