Birchbox - January

I was SO excited to receive my Birchbox a couple of days ago.  This is only the second month I have been receiving it and I'm so in love.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Birchbox, it's a monthly subscription that costs $10 and you are sent 5-6 high-end samples.  They are always pretty neat and always items that can be used.  I would spend more than this going to Ulta or Sephora and getting the samples that are near the checkout, as those usually run $10 a piece.

Here is what I got in this month's:

  • archipelago pomegranate body soap - I totally prefer bar soap over bodywash, so I can't wait to try this out.  I could smell it before I even opened the box.  It's a soft, soothing smell.
  • juicy couture fragrance - This smells awesome.  I feel it's more of a warm weather scent because it's pretty sweet, but girly smelling.  I think I'll be saving this for summer!
  • stila smudge stick waterproof eye liner - I can always use liner so I'm excited to get this.  It's waterproof too, so it should last pretty long.  It's called purple tang, but it's a black liner with bits of purple sparkle in it.  Fabulous!
  • zoya nail polish in megan - This is a really pretty lavender-gray color.  Not sure how good it will look with my pale, pasty hands, but I can't wait to give it a try.  It's a cute bottle and the polish looks nice and creamy.
  • 'wichcraft granola - I couldn't tell what this was at first - look like potpourri - but after I reading the card, I can't wait to check it out.  I love granola and this looks pretty tasty, although not enough to probably curb my cravings.
  • There was also a cute pink and white magnet, but I already put it on my fridge so it's not included in the picture.
After trying these out and finding you want to buy them, you can visit the website and order the full size samples.  Some of these are pretty expensive, so I can't see myself purchasing them, but others aren't too badly priced.  You also score points for products, too.
