I'm sad to say it, but this BirchBox has convinced me that I am going to cancel my subscription. I was already starting to get unhappy with the things that I was receiving, but the things inside this months box were disappointing again. I even went in last month and redid my profile, hoping that would help things.
I have two friends who have Ipsy, so I have currently joined the waiting list to receive that box instead. I plan to keep Birchbox until the end of the month, when I can review the products and spend my points that I have saved up. Here is what February's box brought me.
Sarah Potempa Half Up Hair Styler: I have a friend who received this in her box as well, and neither of us can get this to work. And quite honestly, the product looks, feels, and works cheaply. Not impressed.
Miracle Skin Transformer: This is the one product that I may actually like. It claims to nourish skin and leave a photo ready glow. I plan to try this out today - we'll see how it does. The color pigment may be a bit dark for my fair skin, but I am going to attempt it anyway.
Juicy Couture: I am not a perfume fan. I did save the sample, I may get around to using it eventually. But I just don't ever remember to use it. I even have my profile set to not get perfume samples, but this is one of many that I have received.
Whish Body Butter: This product does smell nice, and will use this one as well. It's very thick, something I will probably use on my hands and feet.
Effervescent Breath Crystals: I know a lot of you read about my rant last time I got food in my BirchBox. It's not something that I enjoy or want. If I wanted gum, I would go buy gum. This is a beauty subscription box, not a food box. I would much rather have a plain old chapstick over granola bars, gum, or tea. Am I the only one who feels this way?
Please tell me some of you got better products in your boxes! Besides Ipsy, do you have any other recommendations for beauty boxes?
