January is the last month of my yearly subscription. I was hoping for a “wow” box, as I imagine the would like me to extend. Well… either there algorithm doesn’t work that way, or we have a very different definition of a “wow” box. Or I’m just not that valuable to them… with that said, January box is dramatically better than December one. It contained:
– Neil George Shampoo and Conditioner
– Perlier White Almond Body Butter
– Balance Me eye cream
– Coastal Scents Revealed sampler in Latte
Neil George stuff is the main reason I’m a bit disappointed with this box. I’m trying to switch to sulfate-free shampoo, and, unfortunately, there is no way to communicate that to Birchbox. Body butter comes handy this time of year, it will be put to a good use. I like eye creams, even though I’m pretty happy using my Paula’s Choice moisturizer around my eye, I like changing up my routine and trying new stuff. So Balance Me is welcome here. I was curious about Revealed pallets for some time and happy to have a chance to play with a sampler. And the neutral colors are right up my alley.
I like the fact the they are changing up the box itself. It’s fun and the finish of the new boxes is smoother. So if you are using them to store all the stuff you hoard, it’s easier to open and close the boxes. It’s also easier to distinguish between the boxes.
Bottom line: I did extend the subscription. Mostly because I’m addicted to it. But now we are going on month-to-month basis now.
