What is Birchbox?
Distinguished for being one of the first beauty subscription sampling services offered, Birchbox has made a long and hard stride towards success. For just $10 per month subscribers can sample trial sized luxury cosmetics and beauty products (sometimes even receiving a full sized product!)
If you missed my May 2015 Upgraded Beta Subscription Box take a look at it here.
What is Sample Choice?
Sample Choice has been around for a while now, which allows you to choose one of your samples or select the guest/special curated box. If you’d rather not choose a sample, then they will still curate a box for you based on your beauty profile.
I went ahead and scored the Dermaclear Micro Water as my sample choice selection for this box, since the other box I selected the Tig (already curated box)! Let’s take a peek at what else I have received for June’s 2015 Full Size Beta Plan Box (second Birchbox Subscription)! FYI: Birchbox will allow new and existing members the option to upgrade their box to adding the two Full Sized Products… for existing members the option is available upon log-on only if you are on a Monthly Birchbox Subscription (not available for annual or gift subscribers; however, you can always just start a new account or add a separate one with a new email like I did).
Included within each subscription box is a list of the full sized product costs (card above), the theme, and uses of each product included in your box! Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon (0.8 g) $7.30 & Pura Vida Lace Headband $2.40
Many subscribers who received the Full Sized Upgraded box ($20+ more) received these two items. The waterproof liner may have been in various shades, but the blue is absolutely gorgeous on my tan complexion and is one of my faves now!
The headband was a lifestyle extra, so I really have no reason not to like it! It is delicate, but the color works with my summer attire!
The Dermaclear Micro Water works extremely well on my waterproof mascara! I was amazed with the clean feeling I felt after the use of this product!
Tocca’s Bianca has been frequently added to subs, which I love since the scent is citrus based and smells phenomenal!
The Temple Spa cleanser is a gentle cleanser that adds a bit of texture over time and helps prevent damage. I have yet to try this brand and I’m not sure if I am really excited to. The reviews are up and down and really aren’t that good.
Full Size Upgraded Products:
Mirenesse iCurl Secret Weapon 24 Hour Mascara $29 & Mally Beauty Liquid Face Defender Blush in Mimosa $30
Both of these products were ok and items I wanted to really try. The Mascara is one I tried as a sample, but liked the effects of the Full Size in contrast to the sample. The full sized product seemed to be fresher and it helped with the product lasting what seemed to be all night.
The blush, well…. I wanted to be a fan but found that the color almost evaporated after application. I have to keep reapplying the the blush and found that it just had not color pay off after the initial application and 5 minutes after it felt like it disappeared.
The value of this box was amazing, just the Full Size products had a value of around $59! Spending $30 instead of the normal $10 was well worth it to me! The variety of exclusive products in my Birchbox is always fun, but the one thing that stands out for me getting the Full Sized Upgrade is that the value tripled along with the cost! Typically I get about $20- $30 worth of small samples for $10 per month, but with this new upgrade option I often have received over $80 for $30! I will end up using everything in this month’s box!
