This month marks Birchbox’s 3rd anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been three years. In one way it feels like Birchbox has been around longer than that.
I got my two Birchboxes a week ago and just started sampling stuff a day or two ago. Here is what I got in the first box.
Soak Laundry Wash
This wash is a rinse-free formula that is designed for items ranging from lingerie, sweaters, quilts and even baby clothes.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive
This is the sample I was most excited to see! I have been curious to try Juice Beauty products for a while. I like exfoliating treatments and have heard this peel is gentle yet effective. The sample size is 0.25 oz so I should get a couple of uses out of it.
Beauty Protector Daily Shampoo and Conditioner
So I go from a high to a low as these two products are the ones I was least happy to receive. I wish there was a way to opt out of receiving hair product samples as I have received samples every month and most have been from this brand. But I can use the shampoo to clean makeup brushes.
Mereadesso All-in-One Moisturizer
This product is an anti-aging day/night cream, serum, eye cream, toner and primer all rolled into one. Talk about multi-tasking! I love the design of this sample as it has a flap that snaps close in the back.
GlamNatural Cream Blush in three shades
This is a super concentrated product that delivers a satin finish and a healthy glow to cheeks. I received three sample shades: Barely There, a pale pink; Sun Kissed, a medium/warm pink; and After Hours, a plum/burgundy shade.
So that’s what I received in my Birchboxes for September. I am a bit underwhelmed by my samples, particularly when I compare them to what I’ve seen in other unboxing videos. As I understand, there are 25+ varieties of boxes one could receive and I know the Birchbox algorithms are choosing the products that closely match my profile. I did make an adjustment to my profile today to see if that helps for October.
