My First Birchbox

A few weeks ago, I made a post about how I finally decided to check out Birchbox. You can read more about that here.

Well, today, I finally received my first Birchbox! I was so super exited! I walked up to my door, and there was this cute, little, pink box just waiting to be opened.

So, I finally was able to sit down and open, what felt like, an early Christmas present. It was full of little surprises.

The first sample was a great little lip gloss sample from Jouer. Apparently, its a specially made sample color called "Birchbox Pink."

Next, there was a sample from Benefit Cosmetics called "The POREfessional." Its supposed to camouflage visible pores. It can be worn underneath or on top of make-up.

Also included was a sample of Mythic Oil from L'Oreal Professionel. This is a lightweight oil that is supposed to increase shine and prevent frizziness.

I also received a sample energy drink mix. I'm not really sure about this one. I think it makes me a little nervous for some reason.

The box also contained a sample of Showstoppers, a double-sided tape strip to help make sure clothing stays in its place.

And lastly, I think I was supposed to receive a sample of "Ageless" perfume form Harvey Prince.

See, they included the little packet that the samples come in...

But, when I opened it, this is what I found...

Apparently, someone messed up with this one. I didn't get this particular sample. Sadly, I think this would have been one of my favorite items. I love perfume and body sprays, and a I'm always looking for new and interesting scents.

All in all, I think I'm pretty satisfied with my first Birchbox. I'm already excited to receive next month's box. I received some great samples this month that I'm super excited to use.

Have any of you ever received a Birchbox? Have you every received anything you absolutely loved OR absolutely hated?


  1. I've never even heard of a Birchbox. I'll have to look into them. But I have gotten items I just love and hated in other ways.

  2. SO FUN! kinda sad about the perfume though :) but at least you still got some other cool stuff!
