When it comes to Birchbox there just isn’t much consistency. Last month (you can see that post here!) was quite nice actually but this month…not impressed. I always do the box sneak peek & was pretty excited by some of the brands…but once in my hands…well just keep reading…
Kerastase Bain Chrima Riche-Cleanse- 2 foil packets of shampoo. Meh. Not thrilling.
Purminerals CC Creeam Broad Spectrum SPF 40 in Light- This is the only item in this Birchbox that ended up being exciting for me. For one thing, Light is an actual shade match for me. I liked the texture & thickness. It helped even but wasn’t my favorite. Still, a nice sample.
The Balm InStain Long Wearing Staining Blush- This is a TINY sample! I was SO excited to see in my box preview that The Balm products would be included but this is pretty much impossible to use as a blush. I have it here next to a bottle of Butter LONDON nail polish for reference. The color is pretty but I haven’t bothered trying to use it.
Benta Berry G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream- Another very tiny sample & actually one I’ve gotten before. I wasn’t wowed the first time so maybe I’ll save this to giveaway.
Extra- 2 patterned bobby pins. They’re cute but I don’t use flat pins often, they don’t hold my fine hair well.
All in all, not all that impressed. I’m bummed. After last month I thought Birchbox was on an upswing but perhaps I was just overexcited. Boo. Here’s to hopping for a better box next month I suppose!
