{Birch Box} August’s Box

August Birch

I seem to be on a box kick this summer. A few of my girlfriends were getting the monthly Birch Box and they would tell me how much they loved it. The concept of the Birch Box is one gets a box full of deluxe beauty and skin care product samples once a month. The kicker is you have no idea what is inside said box, they claim that the surprise is part of the fun.

I like fun and decided to sign up for a Birch Box subscription of my very own. Bummer, I actually had to sign up for an invite. I waited about three weeks for an email that said I had a Birch Box subscription waiting for me. Once I accepted my subscription invite I had to fill out a profile. They ask questions about your lifestyle, skincare, hair, and makeup routine. They say this helps them customize a box just for you. It took me all of ten minutes to complete the survey, I paid my $10.00, and then waited for my first box to arrive.

Much like Julep, Birch Box has a monthly theme. The August Birch Box theme was “Finishing School.”

The August Birch Box included deluxe samples of:

*Avene – Thermal Spring water, a refreshing mist that nourishes all skin types
*Dr. Jart+ – premium BB Cream that evens out skin tone and as anti aging benefits
*Jasmine Seven – Fresh feet wipes
*Secret Agent Beauty – Secret Lip Affair lip gloss
*Glee Gum – Sugar free chewing gum

I hate to say it, but I was not impressed with my first box. However I do believe in giving everything a fair chance, so I have decided to give it a go for a few more months. If I don’t love Birch Box by January I will be canceling my subscription. Yet, I remain hopelessly optimistic that I too will fall in love with Birch Box.
