Now, on the bright side, I had cancelled my subscription and rejoined for may and using a code got my box for only 5.00 which is good because to me, that is all it was worth.
The card insert suggested the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm to be valued at 8.00 for full size, which I did get the full size and it is a lovely, creamy, very lightly tinted lip gloss. Even though in the photo it looks very bright pink, it goes on nice and light leaving only a shade of pink on the lips. It's staying power is nice, and as I said it feels very creamy. To me, however it does not make the box spectacular as it is not something new to me, or something unusual, or anything I could not have already bought for myself, nor something I do not have similar to already in my makeup collection.
The other items in my box included:
Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil Sample
Coola Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion Sample
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Sample
Smarty Pants All-in-One Gummies for Weight Management Sample
and as a bonus a 25 off 75 coupon at an online shop.
I like Smashbox products and will use the foundation primer. The detox oil I will give a try but is not generally a product I prefer. The gummies, well lets just say I am not too into gummies for vitamins or weight loss, or even as a snack for that matter. The Coola After Sun lotion will be nice to have in my bag this summer. The Pixi lip balm was instantly taken away from me by my daughter, which was fine with me.
What I am excited about, which didn't even come in the box, is the fact that my reviews of these items on Birchbox.com I will get points in which I can buy full sized items of things I have liked in the past like the amazing, best shaving cream in the world Eco Armor Shave Gel! Love that stuff and without Birchbox I never would have known about it! Also the points add up super fast!
The following are some codes you can use to get extra points of your first box for only 5.00
