I have been getting Birchbox subscription since about November of 2011, so that makes this my what 4th or 5th birchbox. I LOVE getting the samples in the mail. Sometimes they are good… sometimes they are bad but you only pay 10.00 for the month and you get a present in the mail every month of unexpected samples that you have NO idea what they might be. This months Birchbox was interesting to say the least. It came with the following:
- Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck Perfume
- J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve
- Zoya Spring Collection in Bevin (Nail Polish)
- Dropps Packet Laundry Detergent (yes, I’m serious)
- Willa Lavender Facial Towelettes
I do have to say that I LOVE Taylor Swift’s perfume, (not a huge fan of her) it’s my kind of smell real floral and sweet smelling. MMM! The hand and cuticle salve smells a lot like Vick’s vapor rub with a touch of lavender. I didn’t really notice a huge difference in my awful cuticles overnight but I’ll keep on salving it up (that word is so weird to me!) I really like the Zoya Bevin Nail Polish it’s almost a mossy green. Looks almost like a browner mint green to me if that makes any sense, it just is maybe an off minty color. I used the Dropps Laundry packet today when I washed my husbands work uniforms (Guinea Pig!). Everything came out okay I guess lol. It isn’t like bursting with smell but hey it washed 2 loads of laundry so I shouldn’t complain! ;). I used the Willa facial towelettes last night as well and LOVE them… They are super soft and clean off some heavy duty makeup and smell SO good. This month’s birchbox wasn’t a complete waste! I would probably give it a B+ this month just because I liked almost all of the items and laundry has nothing to do with beauty but I guess it works too. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Have a great day!
