There are a few people at my new job that also get Birchbox. I admit that I myself had a bit of a July Birchbox Spoiler at the office on Friday, but that’s because I just wanted to get the surprise over and done with! aI had a basic idea of what to expect in mine, but as always, every Birchbox is slightly different from one another.
So here is what was found in mine:
-Alterna BAMBOO UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide, Full-size: $24
-Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Golden, Full-size: $38
-Oscar de la Renta Live in Love, Full-size: $25-$78
-stila lip glaze in Lights CL, Full-size: set-of-3: $12
-LÄRABAR über in Roasted Nut Roll; Full-size: pack of 5: $12.69
-Birchbox Exclusive: Earbuds
Now, my co-worker received a Bananas Foster LÄRABAR which she gave to me (Thanks Evelyn!) and I brought home and shared with my other half who is a Bananas Foster freak. It went over very well. I opened up and tried the stila lip glaze while writing the box contents and I can tell you that it feels nice and smells nice, but I haven’t looked in a mirror yet this morning, so I don’t have a full review of that!
I heard from another BIrchboxer that the earbuds had the same quality of those from a walkmen, despite being in-ear earbuds. I’ll give you my full report when I get to it… Which is now: it’s not the best quality, far from it, but not horrendous. If you’re in a pinch and need headphones/earbuds, these will do just fine.
I’m a little apprehensive about the Jouer tinted moisturizer for a couple of reasons. First: I’ve tried several tinted moisturizers within the past few months, testing the waters and seeing what other choices I have from my tried and true Philosophy Hope in a Tube Tinted Moisturizer, but have unfortunately had nothing but awful luck with horrific breakouts. I am afraid of this happening again. Secondly: I was sent “Golden” which is the second to the lightest tint and I always need the lightest tint offered.
Stay tuned for everything else!
My neighborhood has a new mailperson and they are not very good at the delivery aspect of their job. I should retract that and say that they’re not very good at the delivery at MY house. I ordered some stuff that was time sensitive and tracked the delivery like a hawk via the USPS tracking service online. I was so excited when the status finally read, “Delivered” and checked the mailbox, checked the milk box (yes we get our milk delivered like it’s 1940) and around our porch and found nothing. I was really bummed and annoyed because, like I said, I kinda needed this stuff by a certain time. I went back outside and I looked at the mailbox on the outside of our house, and there was my package- along with very sensitive financial benefit information from my new job.
Instead of describing it to you, I think a photo will be best:
I was afraid of finding my Birchbox like this, but, they decided to trick me and put it in the milkbox. Tricky tricky!
