This month, Birchbox teamed up with newsstand staple Us Weekly to curate boxes inspired by awards season. This box left me wanting because it’s quite lackluster. I think it’s because everything in this box is so tiny. Now, because Birchbox is affordable at only $10 a month, I can’t expect to receive larger deluxe samples every month. Still, I’m left disappointed because over the last few months my subscription reverted back to what it was for a short while in its infancy - a collection of perfume samples and foil packets. Not bad, but not the same Birchbox I loved after it sorted out its kinks.
A few notes specifically about the products —
- The Beauty Protector hair oil is the best product from this box and will be put to good use as I’ve been extremely apathetic about getting my hair cut and hair oil has been the only thing maintaining the dry ends of my hair.
- I’ve got a question for you. Is it just me or does Juicy Couture release a new fragrance every three months? I feel like my Birchbox subscription is inundated with samples from the brand. Generally, I don’t like the Juicy Couture scents, but this one reminds me of a combination of Clinique Happy and Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl, my signature scents in the 7th and 8th grades and that just makes me nostalgic and happy. So, I guess I should thank Birchbox and Juicy Couture in this situation.
- I think the Ruby Wings nail polish will make a great pedicure color once summer arrives. Hopefully, the color changing formula does its magic and I can impress people with my pedicure.
