January Birchbox Unboxing

Hey everyone, today I will be unboxing one of my favorite subscription boxes, my Birchbox. If you are unfamiliar with Birchbox, it is a beauty subscription box that comes every month with 5-6 deluxe samples in a beautiful box for just $10 a month. My favorite part about Birchbox is their fabulous rewards program. For every 10 points you earn, you receive $1 in store credit. The points are super easy to earn and build up super fast.  Join me by clicking here!

So let’s get into it.

This is the outside of this month’s box. I really love the design because it isn’t just a pattern. I think this is a great box to start the new year. img_0605

The theme of this box is “hello 2017”. The products are designed to give you a new perspective. img_0606

This is the overview of the items inside.img_0607

First is this Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant. This is an item that I was so excited to try but ended up being a bit disappointing. This is basically a powder foliant that you mix with water and scrub your face with. I have used products like this in the past and have really been a fan of because they are buildable exfoliation. The reason I didn’t absolutely love this product is because I didn’t feel like it lived up to its price point and I didn’t notice a huge difference in my skin. img_0608img_0609img_0610

The next item in my box is this Arrow Mascara. Arrow is a Birchbox brand that is designed for the woman on the go and truly does make life easier for that type of woman. I love this mascara because of the brush. It coats each individual lash like magic. I also really appreciate that it is water resistant because it makes all-day wear so much easier!img_0611img_0612

The next product in my box is from one of my favorite skincare brands, Dr. Brandt. This is the pores no more cleanser. I was kind of surprised that Birchbox sent me this because it doesn’t really fit my profile. I have never really had an issue with large pores so I can’t really give you an honest review on how effective this product is on minimizing the size of pores. However, I do love how gentle the cleanser is on my sensitive skin and how it smells. img_0613

The next item in my box is my favorite item. This is the derma.e Hydrating Night Cream. My favorite thing about this product is that it is vegan and all natural. This is beyond hydrating and makes my skin feel so soft. It really is a night cream because it is super thick but it is absolutely amazing. img_0614

The last item in my box is a perfume sample from Juliette has a Gun. It is called “Mmmm…” and smells great. I am typically a fan of floral, musky scents and this isn’t really what I would usually use. That being said, when i wore it, I got TONS of compliments on it. img_0615img_0616

Overall, I am pretty happy with my box this month and I would still absolutely recommend joining Birchbox.
