Birchbox Subscription Review | September 2017

birchbox review
Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that sends out beauty products and make-up samples in standard & deluxe sample sizes. Sometimes you will get a full size item too. You will receive 5 products each month from hair, skin, fragrance, and nail categories. When you sign you’ll fill out a beauty profile quiz and your samples should reflect your choices and style. 
Some boxes send everyone the exact same items each month. However, Birchbox does not, they try to select items based on your profile, so you could get 2 subs with them and fill out each profile differently and hopefully get 10 different items.(don’t quote me. I do this with Ipsy and sometimes get repeats)
Each month you are given the option of choosing one sample for the following months box starting with your second month. They also have a points program where you will get $1 for every $10 spent. You can review your samples each month to give the curators a better idea of the products you like and the ones you don’t so they can try and make your upcoming boxes better suited for you. This box is $10 per month. They almost always have free gifts for signing up that vary from month-to-month. Lets see what they brought me this month.

M.A.C Extreme Dimensions 3D Mascara
First up we have a M.A.C Extreme Dimensions 3D Mascara in Black. This is sample size with a full size brush which I thought was a very nice. The brush worked very well to coat, thicken, and lengthen my lashes without any clumps at all. I am very picky when it comes to mascara and I have not tried a M.A.C one in quite a few years (This brand rarely shows up in beauty boxes) but I was pleasantly surprised with it and I might purchase the full size when I am done with this sample.

 This peachy color plumping gloss is infused with chamomile, aloe, and jojoba to moisturize your lips. It can be used alone or over your favorite liquid lipstick to add glossy shine. It did not feel sticky like most glosses I used it both alone and over my usual lippie and I prefer using it alone the sheer peach color is beautiful by itself. 
Marcelle 8 in 1 Power Serum
marcelle 8 in 1 power serum
 This gel type serum is fragrance free and full of peptides to fill in fine lines which it claims to do in about a week. I think that there should be enough in this bottle for 2 weeks so if there is any major changes in my skin I will post an update.
This sample is 0.23 oz -The full size is $37

 Sadly most of my sample leaked all over my box and I was so sad because this is one  my favorite brands of all time, the scent is amazing. I have emailed Birchbox and am yet to get a response. The little bit I did get I tried on my hair and it left my hair frizz free, shiny, and smelling wonderful like all the other Beauty Protector products I’ve used.

 This smells so good again I am super picky with perfume but what woman isn’t? This has a very fruity clean smell, I LOVE like all of the Clean brand perfumes and this smells a lot like those. Although this is not a mini sprayer sample it does have a little dipstick attached to the cap for easier use than a plain open top sample bottle which was a lot easier to apply. 

Nicole’s Notes:

Birchbox is a good deal anyway you look at it for $10 a month you get 5 samples of well known high end beauty products and they come in a cute box that is different each month. Sign up below to get your own Birchbox. Thanks for reading my review I hope you enjoyed it!
