My August Birchbox is here and I’m proud to say that I didn’t take a peak online. It’s the end of summer, but Birchbox wants to help keep you cool and laughing your way into fall. This was definitely an interesting box.
I received the Harvey Prince Ageless Body Crème, a lotion that leaves your skin feeling silky-smooth, and the Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow. This was a Birchbox exclusive that I was excited to see that I would be getting. For hair products I got deluxe size samples of the Neil George Shampoo and Conditioner. This is going to come in handy when I go to Vegas. Hope it’s good! Lastly was a product that I chose, theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen. I didn’t want this, but I only had two options: that and some bronzer. I don’t like to get bronzers since I’m picky about those. We had the choice between a special box and choosing a product. Birchbox never gave me the option to choose and by the time I was able to choose, everything was gone.
That’s my big issue with Birchbox. Don’t offer these types of things unless you are able to send out e-mails to everyone. So many members never got the e-mail and others couldn’t choose. These kinks need to be ironed out before having these offers, which I dp think is amazing.
To be honest, this box was a let down. I received shampoo and conditioner samples either last month or in June so I don’t need more. Even with the choosing a product fail and more shampoo and conditioners, I’m interested in trying everything out and seeing if they work great. Out of all the beauty subscription services that I’m a member of, Birchbox is the most hit or miss. I definitely recommend joining Birchbox because you never really know what products you may discover. Some of the samples I’ve received over the past couple of years have gone on to become my must-have, holy grail items. And these were items I didn’t know about until Birchbox.
