January Birchbox

Hello All!

I've decided to do a quick review/ informational post about this month's Birchbox. If you're not familiar with what a Birchbox is, visit the website and click the "Learn More" button. In a nutshell, when you subscribe you receive four to five hand-picked deluxe samples for $10 per month. This is my first box, but I've read reviews about previous boxes on other blogs, and I was excited to get my first!

So quickly, some pictures of my box, and then I'll give some details:

Zoya Nail Polish in Megan
Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal
VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything: Eye Serum

So I was REALLY excited to see a bottle of nail polish in this box! My obsession with nail polish started when I was 10 or so. I had a HUGE collection of every color imaginable and I was always painting fun designs on my friends' nails. At some point I lost a lot of my collection, but I've recently been rebuilding that collection. You'll likely see a lot on here about nail polish. :-P

Zoya is a great brand of nail polish. I don't own very many of this brand, but those that I do own have a great formula. This particular color (Megan) is not my favorite, but I have it on my nails right now and I can tolerate it. 

I'm not going to be very good at reviewing the Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal because I am not a fan of concealer, but I do like the idea of a multifunctional product. I applied some on my hand when I first opened the box, and it seemed to conceal a freckle quite well, so yay?!

I was pleasantly surprised with the VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything: Eye Serum. Maybe it seems crazy, but I like using anti-aging skin care products. Being 25, I don't have a lot of wrinkles, but PREVENTION IS KEY! This eye serum seems nice. I've only been using it for about a week, so I can't say much about its claim to brighten and revive the under eye area. But it also claims to have "instant, temporary tightening" capabilities, and I can verify that is does seem to do that. Cool? Cool.

Juicy Couture Juicy Couture

I already own Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy and I love it, so I was excited to get a sample of the Juicy Couture scent. It is described as "a blend of sweet floral notes." Basically, in comparison to the other scent I own, it just seems more grown-up. Sophisticated, maybe? I like it, though. I might eventually get a bigger size.

'wichcraft Granola

And then some granola. Haven't tasted it yet because I thought it would be good with some yogurt, which I don't have at the moment. If you're dying to know how it tastes, buy some! It's only $8.

Okay. That's everything! Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with my first Birchbox. I definitely look forward to my next one. I have stumbled upon multiple other websites that offer similar products, and I am very tempted to try them out. I'll let you know if I do. :)

So let me know what you think. Would you be interested in trying out Birchbox? Maybe not?
