January Birchbox



Usually I am so excited for my Birchbox to arrive but this month, when I took a sneak peek at my items before the box arrived, I was a bit disappointed.

There's usually at least one product that wows me but this month, it kind of fell short.




I'm pretty sure either in November or December's box I got a shampoo so I wasn't really excited about this one. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it works good. It's also a pretty decent sample size so that's a plus also.




This is an everyday moisturizer that doubles as a foundation primer and make up remover. Interesting. I haven't used it yet but it's a rather small bottle so we'll see how it goes.




I have so many perfume samples it's ridiculous. Usually I love the perfumes Birchbox gives me but Shimmer is definitely not one of them. It has a weird, almost too sweet smell and I really do not enjoy it.




I received a highlighter in one of my other boxes of the same brand so I was pretty excited about this one. I used this once and I'm pretty satisfied with it. It's a great color; almost like a burnt red and it has good texture. This was my favorite item in the box.




This is a nail polish remover mitt that is supposed to clean all ten nails. I haven't used it yet but it seems pretty good; Deborah Lippmann is a great brand so I'm sure it won't disappoint. 

This box wasn't a complete failure but it definitely wasn't one of my favorites. Hopefully next month will be better!
